Film Review: Life Partners

4 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"Life Partners" is a new comedy co-written by Joni Lefkowitz and co-written and directed by Susanna Fogel. It stars Gillian Jacobs and Leighton Meester as Paige and Sasha, two best friends, the former of which is straight and the latter gay. They are as close as can be until Paige meets Adam Brody's character Tim and falls in love with him. This challenges her relationship with Sasha, who is single and not ready to give up all of the time she spends with her pal.

The film is semi autobiographical, as the writers have a similar longtime friendship with each other. Susanna Fogel, in her feature directorial debut, gets a lot of great performances out of the talented cast. The two female leads shine in their roles, funny and human, not over the top caricatures that you might get with a studio comedy. Adam Brody is quite charming as Paige's newfound beau, »

She’s the One: Fogel’s Debut a Top Tier Examination of Co-Dependent Friendship

Borrowing shades of autobiographical instances from their own lives, director Susanna Fogel and co-writer Joni Lefkowitz’s feature film debut, Life Partners, transcends the corral of niche markets and anchoring labels with its enthusiastic relatability as one of the most realistic examples of life’s circumstances forcing friends (a little bit) apart. Devoid of soapboxing subtexts or proselytizing with political agendas, Lefkowitz’s tender, sharply observed script gets fleshed out by a handful of genuinely engaging performances from both leads and supporting players. Familiar themes are presented refreshingly as Fogel expertly guides the film through the precarious catwalk of striking just the right balance between light drama and inventive comedy, inviting us to laugh at and with a strikingly composed cast of rich characters.

Best friends Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) have been inseparable platonic soul mates, »

Nick Kroll, Joel McHale on 'Adult Beginners' and Doing Each Other Favours

13 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

According to Nick Kroll, the initial inspiration for "Adult Beginners," his debut feature as a leading man, came from a botched diaper change after babysitting his sister's young nephew. From there, the comedian brought the idea for a movie about a man-child nanny to his "League" co-star Mark Duplass, who came on-board as a producer, then teamed up with writers Jeff Cox and Liz Flahive (parents of a 3-year-old themselves) and longtime producer Ross Katz, making his directorial debut with the film.

In it, Kroll stars as a self-absorbed entrepreneur who leaves Manhattan to go to live with his pregnant sister (Rose Byrne) and brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale) in the suburbs after his tech start-up implodes, and ends up becoming the nanny for his 3-year-old nephew in exchange for room and board. Fans of Kroll (from his sketch comedy series "Kroll Show" or "The League") won't be surprised to hear that "Adult Beginners" is extremely funny, »

Tonys: Will Broadway's Golden Girl Kelli O'Hara Finally Take Home the Gold This Year? (Video)

3 June 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York – Few performers have won an acting Tony for work in a show that closed after Tony nominations were announced due to poor ticket sales, as opposed to the expiration of a preordained limited engagement. The most recent exceptions to this rule were Julie White, who won best actress in a play for The Little Dog Laughed (2006), and John Lithgow, who won best actor in a musical for Sweet Smell of Success (2002), the latter of which featured an up-and-coming young actress by the name of Kelli O'Hara.

Nurse Jackie’s Julie White on 12-Stepping, Oxy Addicts, and Playing the Worst Sponsor Ever

29 May 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Julie White has tangled with Matthew Perry on the sitcom Go On, tended to Hal Holbrook in Lincoln, and mothered Shia Labeouf in the Transformers movies. But it’s her current role as Jackie Peyton’s AA sponsor Antoinette on Nurse Jackie that may have left the Tony award winner (for 2006’s The Little Dog Laughed) most in need of a vacation. “Every week when I saw my character failing, it got more and more depressing to play,” says the actress in an interview with Vulture. “I was really glad when it was over!” We spoke to White about Antoinette’s recent admission, her blindness to Jackie’s drug use, and the future of her sponsorship. [Warning: Contains spoilers up through this past Sunday’s episode of Nurse Jackie.]Antoinette kind of forces her AA sponsorship on Jackie. Is that a good way to begin that kind of relationship?[Laughs] You tell me! It doesn't seem to be working very well. Nurse Jackie is »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Life Partners’

1 May 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” and other bubbly Bff pairings, the number of female-centric comedies that use friendship as an excuse to wallow in childish regression still lags far behind the countless “bromances” guilty of same. Attempting to even the field, first-time helmer Susana Fogel and writing partner Joni Lefkowitz’s wry “Life Partners” reps a well-scripted, intriguingly-acted effort to mine the theme of prolonged adolescent best-buddyism through two women — one straight, the other gay. Building three-dimensional characters within generic stereotypes and replacing broad comic strokes with quietly rueful idiocies, this breezy, authentic-feeling indie should find appreciative followers among both genders.

Paige (Gillian Jacobs), an environmental lawyer who tends toward the conventional, and Sasha (Leighton Meester), who nine-to-fives as a receptionist but defines herself as a musician, have been best friends forever. They stage fake ‘road rage’ confrontations, exiting their cars and yelling “bitch” and “slut” at »

Jason Momoa Travels Sundance’s “Red Road” Plus the Return of “Vikings” and “Portlandia”

27 February 2014 4:58 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


The Arsenio Hall Show has been renewed for a second season.

Justin Hartley has joined the cast of the ABC comedy pilot Damaged Goods. The pilot, from Awkward. creator Lauren Iungerich, is a relationship comedy about two damaged men and two damaged women with Hartley playing a man who can’t handle his girlfriend getting the promotion he was pursuing. I think I prefer to see him playing a guy who is dating an tech billionaire with a vengeful pal.

In a sadly unsurprising development, the Biography channel is revamping into Fyi Network, which will feature upscale lifestyle programming.

Empire, the hip-hop drama pilot from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, added to its cast Person of Interest alum Taraji P. Henson. She’ll play the wife of the drama’s music mogul, a woman who has done prison time for selling drugs to keep her husband’s music label »
