If you haven’t read Irene Nemirovsky’s Suite Française, you should remedy that as soon as possible. As great-yet-not-quite-complete works of art go, it’s right up there with Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and any attempt to make a film about Don Quixote ever. Its big-screen interpretation comes with awards hopes and two leads, Michelle Williams and Rust And Bone’s Matthias Schoenaerts, with the chops to carry its great swells of emotion. Check out its new trailer below. brightcove.createExperiences(); Williams plays Lucille Angellier, a French villager whose husband has fallen into the hands of the Germany army. The arrival of a Wehrmacht officer called Bruno (Schoenaerts) as part of that occupying force, not to mention a small army of refugees fleeing Paris, throws everything that wasn’t already into flux into that state of disrepair for her. Worse still, she begins to feel things for Bruno that could cost her dear. »
The World War II drama is set in France in 1940.
A woman (Williams) awaiting news of her prisoner of war husband is forced to share her home with an unwelcome German officer (Schoenaerts).
Despite warnings to avoid him, she finds herself falling in love with the man, a romance that may end in tragedy.
Suite Française will arrive in the UK on January 23. A Us release date is yet to be announced. »
World War II dramas are prime contenders for Oscar consideration. It’s an accepted fact. Yet, The Weinstein Company are steering one of their upcoming titles, Suite Francaise, toward a far less starry showcase. Its world premiere will take place at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this November – and depending on its reception, it may hit Us screens in the new year. Whatever happens, there’s still plenty of buzz surrounding the pic, which looks to contain another compelling performance from Michelle Williams.
Based on the best-selling novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the film is set during the German occupation of France and chronicles a romantic affair between an unlikely couple. Williams takes on the role of a French woman who falls for a Nazi officer (Matthias Schoenaerts) who commandeers charge of her town.
The latest trailer that’s arrived today focuses on the tension between the couple, as »

Where’s The Weinstein Company’s “Suite Francaise,” a movie many assumed would be an Oscar player? Well, it will make its world premiere at the American Film Market, among 90 other premieres, in November. And Afm is for buyers and distributors, so it’s the opposite of the splashy premiere that you might expect from TWC. In fact, if you’re being cynical or conspiracy theory-like, you might think they're trying to unload the picture since they already own it. But that's nothing but speculation for now. Regardless, the picture stars Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts as two diametrically opposed people who embark on a forbidden affair. Set during World War II, during the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, Williams plays a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier (Schoenaerts) stationed to look over her township. Co-starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Sam Riley, the film is »

Curiously absent from the fall film festival slate is the World War II drama Suite Française, but then again, The Weinstein Company seems to be putting all of their eggs in The Imitation Game basket. Thankfully we’ll be seeing the project, starring Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Kristin Scott Thomas and Sam Riley, sooner than expected, as it’ll be hitting U.K. theaters early […] »

Joshua Jackson‘s new series, The Affair, recently premiered on Showtime and we couldn’t help ourselves — we had to take a trip down memory lane. We had to remember Jj as the teen heartthrob whose posters we once plastered on our walls. Don’t get us wrong — Josh is still a super hottie, but the baby-faced Pacey Witter we used to love is now all grown up. Given that our favorite Joshua Jackson role was, Duh, Pacey, we decided to revisit all our biggest Dawson’s Creek crushes, and see how the creek-dwelling babes have evolved since the late 1990s.
From being mainstays of the `90s to becoming modern babes, you’ll be shocked at how much these heartthrobs and throbettes have changed. From a pre-Tom and Suri Katie Holmes (who was, hint, adorable) to Joshua Jackson’s Eminem hair, these guys looked like the `90s. »

Jennifer Jason Leigh has secured the leading female role in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. The highly anticipated post Civil War western – that was almost ditched by Tarantino due to a script leak – will position Leigh in the role of a Wyoming prisoner Daisy Domergue. A role Michelle Williams, Hilary Swank, Robin Wright and Demi Moore were all said to be eyeing. Shackled and guarded during a cold wintry transport by the local sheriff, Domergue may secure freedom thanks to a storm and four men who show up with unclear motives. Whether they are out to help the murderer before she is set to be hung is a [ Read More ]

Whether you were Team Pacey or Team Dawson no longer matters, because we are all Team Puppy! Dawson's Creek was a late-'90s gem, and now, Dachshund's Creek is bringing back the Capeside crew with the most adorable spoof. But instead of James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams showing all the angst and drama that comes with being a teenager, this #pawsome parody features a cast of wiener dogs! Dachshund's Creek, a MichaelZimmerman.com creation, uses dialogue from original WB show (which aired from 1998 to 2003) as the vocals for their sausage dog stars. The darling dachshunds recreate Dawson's Creek's iconic opening by the water—to the tune of Paua Cole's »
This story first appeared in the Oct. 31 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. It took a rival's big move for Tpg Capital to step up its commitment to CAA. On Oct. 20, the private-equity firm increased its stake in the agency from 35 percent to 53 percent — partly in response to Wme's ballooning size thanks to its May acquisition of Img, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

The randy sailors of On the Town are back in the Big Apple, and taking up permanent residence at the newly-renamed Lyric Theatre (where the beleaguered Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was the previous tenant), with lots of dancing boys and girls courtesy of Smash's acclaimed choreographer Joshua Bergasse (keep your eyes peeled to EW.com for a future feature on him, by the way).

Emma Stone seems to have an affinity for movies about men who dress up in animal suits and fly around New York City. Things are going to get pretty meta, so hang on. In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman (in theaters Friday), The Amazing Spider-Man star plays the petulant daughter (and terrible personal assistant to) Michael Keaton’s Riggan, a washed-up movie star who made his fame and fortune in a superhero franchise and is now trying to revive his career by launching a play adaptation of a Raymond Carver novel on Broadway. And now, in real life, while releasing a movie about trying to make it on Broadway, Stone is actually about to be on Broadway, singing every day in preparation to take over for Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles opposite Alan Cumming’s Emcee in the revival of Cabaret. Got it? Good! Vulture talked to her for a »

Emma Stone is making her Broadway debut on Nov. 11 as Sally Bowles in the revival of Cabaret, and Entertainment Weekly's first picture of her in the role is stunning. Her red hair is gleaming as she takes the mic, dressed only in lacy black lingerie. Stone stopped by The Tonight Show to play "Box of Lies" with Jimmy Fallon and promote Birdman this week, and she also told him that she saw Cabaret for the first time in New York City, when she was only 9 years old and Alan Cumming played the Emcee. And now here she is, playing the lead role opposite Cumming! Fun fact: Stone is stepping in to replace Michelle Williams, who also made her Broadway debut as Sally. »
Emma Stone is keeping herself busy. Along with doing press for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), she is about to make her Broadway debut in the revival of Cabaret as Sally Bowles, alongside Tony winner Alan Cumming. This revival is a remounting of 1998 production which won four Tonys and ran for over 2,300 performances. Stone will be taking over the role from Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, who also made her Broadway debut in the show. I had the great pleasure to see the show back in June. I was two days late on the Shia Labeouf arrest, unfortunately. Williams received a lot of criticism for her performance because she is not the greatest singer in the world. The thing is, Sally is supposed to be untalented. She is just conning everyone into thinking she is great. I think people get hung up on what Liza Minnelli did in »
