Comedian-Singer-Writer Victoria Wood Dies at 62

20 April 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — British comedian, singer and writer Victoria Wood, who won several BAFTAs, has died at the age of 62, following a battle with cancer.

Wood got her break on TV talent show “New Faces” in 1974, while she was still a student. Later she forged an enduring onscreen partnership with Julie Walters, starting with sketch shows “Wood and Walters” and “Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV,” which incorporated the spoof soap “Acorn Antiques.” The latter show won a BAFTA.

As her career developed, she pushed into comedy drama series, like “Dinnerladies,” and more serious fare, like TV movie “Housewife, 49,” which earned a BAFTA. She also earned a BAFTA for one-off special “An Audience with Victoria Wood.”

Tony Hall, the BBC’s director-general, said: “Victoria Wood was a woman with a stunning array of talents — a comedian, singer, songwriter, actress and director. People identified with her warmth and great charm. She brought people »

Very sad news: comedian Victoria Wood has died following a battle with cancer...

Some extremely sad news. Writer, musician, actor and comedy hero Victoria Wood has died following a short battle with cancer.

The news was confirmed this afternoon by her publicist. 

One of the most gifted writers and performers in UK comedy, and an inspiration to so many who followed her into the profession, her loss will be deeply, deeply felt.

Wood's writing, performing and composing career began almost forty years ago and her success made her a familiar face on television since the 1980s. From Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV to her many collaborations with Julie Walters, to nineties comedy series Dinnerladies to 2014 comedy drama screenplay That Day We Sang, to everything in between, her work was guaranteed to combine sharp wit, warmth and laughter.

Brooklyn Blu-Ray Review

22 March 2016 7:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Films about immigration to America all too often rely on the same tired clichés: about immigrants struggling to come to the new world, only to discover that the streets are not paved with gold or even properly paved, or about immigrants already here, faced with that peculiar American brand of discrimination, ghettoization, and fragmentation. Usually someone turns to crime, the old country beckons (or follows), and the family begins to disintegrate under the weight of the new American world. Thankfully, the romantic-drama Brooklyn, which comes out on Blu-ray this month, fulfills none of the stereotypes of its predecessors.

Not that Brooklyn doesn’t start out with certain element of cliché. The lovely Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) departs her small Irish village for the wonders of 1950s Brooklyn, where she encounters a very different world from the one she left behind. With the help of a kindly priest (Jim Broadbent) and »

Review: Brooklyn

18 March 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Every now and then, you see a film that transports to you another time and place that feels very familiar but is also alien in many respects. It weaves its magic in subtle and quiet ways so you don’t even realize how transported you have become.

Brooklyn is not flashy but it tells its immigrant story with heart and soul, allowing actors to work through scenes so you feel like you are gazing on the real borough during the 1950s. Based on Colm Tóibín’s novel, the film was adapted to the screen by novelist/screenwriter Nick Hornby and director John Crowley.

This is the Brooklyn where a generation of comic book writers and artists were raised and the one I visited to see my grandparents. It is where a city’s heart was broken when the beloved bums, the Dodgers will soon leave for California.
