Pride review

13 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Why a British film about the 1984 miners' strike, and a lesbian and gay support group, is the comedy of the year to date...

The truth, goes the saying, is often stranger than fiction.

Pride, for instance, is set in 1984, and tells the story of a small group called Lsgm, or Lesbians And Gays Support The Miners. Said group sparks into life in the midst of a Gay Pride march in London, when a 20-year old by the name of Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) argues that miners have been as badly treated by the establishment as they have, and thus starts collecting money. As it turns out, quite a bit of money.

The problem? Once that money is raised, finding a community of miners willing to accept the cash is easier said than done. Manly miners taking money off a gay support group, in a period when prejudice - as the »

Showtime’s The Affair Gets A Steamy, Thrilling First Trailer

21 July 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Penny Dreadful having premiered to rave reviews, and Masters of Sex having debuted its second season to critical acclaim consistent with the period drama’s first, Showtime is having a pretty great 2014. And the premium cable network’s offerings continue to hold nothing but promise for the remainder of the year, with the just-released first trailer for its upcoming drama The Affair serving as a tantalizing introduction to what’s sure to be a red-hot series.

Starring The Hour‘s Dominic West and Luther‘s Ruth Wilson (and just like that, I’m already sold), The Affair centers on the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair between two broken individuals, using the biases present in the male and female perspectives on the show to tell a multilayered story. Wilson plays Alison, a waitress in the Hamptons dealing with the aftermath of a personal tragedy and attempting to »

Video: Ruth Wilson and Dominic West get steamy in new 'The Affair' trailer

20 July 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Showtime’s upcoming drama The Affair is about, well, an affair, but not just any affair: In the show’s latest trailer, Ruth Wilson’s Alison and Dominic West’s Noah speak to a detective about a supposed accident, hinting there’s a lot more to the story.

The series starts off with the happily married Noah meeting Alison, also married (to Joshua Jackson’s Cole) but seemingly not as happily, at a restaurant where he’s dining with his family—wife (Maura Tierney) and four children included. Things escalate quickly when Noah sneaks out of his in-laws’ beachfront home »

CBS Shows United Front at Summer TCA Party

18 July 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS partnered with sister channels the CW and Showtime for a blowout party Thursday at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

Stars of new shows like Grant Gustin of CW’s “The Flash” and Mariana Klaveno of CBS’ “Stalker” hobnobbed with press, while a mini reunion of “The Wire” actors Wendell Pierce, who joins Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” this year, and Dominic West of new Showtime drama “The Affair,” excited those within Instagram distance. Elsewhere, CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler insisted her chill, old school demeanor would not allow for such things as sending an underling to get her food so she wouldn’t wait in line, CW prexy Mark Pedowitz debated which he enjoys more: Upfronts or TCA.

Movie Review – Pride (2014)

17 July 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride, 2014.

Directed by Matthew Warchus.

StarringBill Nighy, Dominic West, Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Ben Schnetzer, Imelda Staunton, Joseph Gilgun and George MacKay.

 

Synopsis:

When a group of gay and lesbian activists pledge their support to the minors’ strikes of the 80s, they are met with a mixed response. Some take them in as brothers and sisters, but they must also win over the ones who react only with embarrassment and, sometimes, hatred.

Pride, like it’s namesake, has many ups and downs. Pride in oneself can lead to confidence, looking good to others and feeling good to yourself but can also lead to a swift downfall. The movie gives this lesson as well as telling other stories in a myriad of character arcs that all play out together to tell the overarching story of two groups shoved underfoot by the state in 1980s Britain.

Emmy Predictions: Movies and Miniseries Contenders Chase ‘Normal Heart,’ ‘Fargo’

9 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two white-hot productions — HBO’s “The Normal Heart” and FX’s “Fargo” — explain why the Television Academy opted this year to break up movies and miniseries into separate Emmy categories once again.

The TV Acad combined the top longform categories in 2011 when miniseries were extremely rare creatures on TV. But just three years later, whether they’re called “event series” or “limited series,” multi-part longform productions are busting out all over the place, even on the broadcast nets.

HBO’s bold move to field its eight-hour romp in the Louisiana swamps, “True Detective,” as a drama series cleared the way for “Fargo” to be the undisputed frontrunner in the miniseries heat. And HBO’s “Normal Heart” is the one to catch in the movie race.

Indeed, the real footraces in the longform category this year are unfolding in the acting categories, which remain a combo plate of movies and minis. »

Imelda Staunton & Bill Nighy Get Help from Gays in UK 'Pride' Trailer

1 July 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's a lot of pride for gays and lesbians going around right now as many states continue grant equal rights to allow them to get married instead of being treated like second class citizens by the law.

However, at the time, the National Union of Mineworkers weren't all that thrilled about receiving their help, forcing these activists to go straight to the families themselves. It's a story of unlikely togetherness staring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine and more, and the first trailer from the UK has arrived!
