Watch: Asa Butterfield in New Us Trailer for 'A Brilliant Young Mind'

29 July 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"When somebody loves you, it means they see something in you that they think is worth something, that's value to you." Samuel Goldwyn has debuted an official Us trailer for the film A Brilliant Young Mind, formerly known as X+Y as it played on the festival circuit for the last year (premiered at Tiff 2014). In the film, Asa Butterfield stars a math prodigy with autism in a coming-of-age story where he takes a trip to Seoul for a tournament as part of the United Kingdom Math Squad. The cast includes Rafe Spall as his teacher, Sally Hawkins as his mother, plus Eddie Marsan and Jo Yang. I'm still looking forward to this. Here's the Us trailer for Morgan Matthews' A Brilliant Young Mind, in high def on Apple (+ YouTube): A socially awkward teenage math prodigy (Asa Butterfield) finds new confidence and new friendships when he lands a »

Watch: Calculate The Drama In New Trailer For 'A Brilliant Young Mind' With Asa Butterfield And Sally Hawkins

29 July 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Premiering at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, it has taken awhile for the mathematics/coming-of-age dramedy "A Brilliant Young Mind" (formerly titled "X+Y") to land stateside in a proper release. But now the little movie is coming to win your heart and a new trailer is here to reintroduce you to the picture. Asa Butterfield and Sally Hawkins star in the movie about a borderline autistic young man who finds his way through the world with a particularly adept skill in mathematics. From first love to a trip to Taiwan, he's going to do a lot of growing up. Here's the official synopsis: A young math genius sees logic thwarted by one truly baffling equation: love. Teenage math prodigy Nathan struggles when it comes to building relationships with other people, not least with his mother, Julie. In a world difficult to comprehend, he finds comfort in numbers.

DVD Review: 'X+Y'

13 July 2015 4:03 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ The evolution of The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon has acclimatised modern audiences to notion of tittering at the eccentricities of people on the autistic spectrum. Generalities blind audiences to the fact that people on that spectrum are very much distinct individuals with likes, dislikes and talents, just as with the rest of us. Morgan Matthews' X+Y (2014) cannot be accused of ridiculing its subject, Nathan, who is considerately portrayed by Asa Butterfield. He is a maths whizz but not merely a cold, obsessed machine. Nathan is diagnosed at a young age and his father (Martin McCann), being a relaxed soul, finds it easier than his mum (Sally Hawkins) to cajole and coax a smile out of his seemingly distant son.

Park Chan-Wook Begins Production On Fingersmith

22 June 2015 3:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Acclaimed director Park Chan-Wook (Oldboy, Thirst, Stoker) has begun production on his latest project – a Korean adaptation of the 2002 novel by Sarah Waters, titled Fingersmith. While Park has been working on English language projects since 2009’s Thirst, that film took the Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize – making Park’s return to Korean language filmmaking a very exciting prospect indeed.

The source novel, Fingersmith, is set in Victorian-era London, and centres on the troubled and complex romantic relationship between Sue and Maud. Told in three parts, giving different perspectives on the tale, the layered plot weaves deception, manipulation, theft and murder through a larger story about love and trust. As older generation characters attempt something of a ‘long con’, the younger Sue and Maud find themselves being used as unwitting pawns in a disturbing and bitter game – to the tragic detriment of their affair.

The novel was previously adapted in 2005 as a two-part BBC drama, »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Man Up’

19 April 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For viewers still waiting for the indefinitely delayed third “Bridget Jones” film, Ben Palmer’s easy, breezy romantic comedy “Man Up” offers a pleasant sense of deja vu: Not only does it trail the romantic misadventures of a klutzy London singleton, but gives a deft American actress an endearing Limey makeover in the process. Undisguised by a perfectly plummy accent, Lake Bell’s signature dorky charm lends distinction to this overnight tale of two lovelorn misfits struck by Cupid on a sabotaged blind date — with Simon Pegg sportingly playing second fiddle as her accidental suitor. Though this bouncily paced diversion is unlikely to hit the domestic B.O. paydirt of Palmer’s 2011 TV spinoff, “The Inbetweeners Movie,” it’s a far more exportable strain of Britcom, as indicated by its Tribeca premiere slot.

Palmer’s film has potentially given itself an avoidable commercial hindrance with its misleading title. While the »

Asa Butterfield Dramedy Formerly Known as 'X+Y' Lands at Samuel Goldwyn

13 April 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Asa Butterfield broke out big in "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" and now establishes himself as a bright star to watch in "A Brilliant Young Mind," Morgan Matthews' drama formerly known as "X+Y" at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival. Samuel Goldwyn plans a Summer 2015 release. Butterfield plays Nathan, a teen math prodigy on the autistic spectrum opposite Sally Hawkins (Oscar-nominated for "Blue Jasmine" and should-have-been-Oscar-nominated for "Happy-Go-Lucky") as his mother and Rafe Spall as his unconventional teacher who primes him for the International Mathematics Olympiad in Taiwan, where Nathan meets the beautiful Zhang Mei (Jo Yang). It sounds cheesy, but the film, inspired by Matthews' 2007 documentary "Beautiful Young Minds," was adored by all in Toronto, with a whopping 100% on the Tomatometer.

Few sparks from romantic melodrama

12 April 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The once-winning Nicholas Sparks formula of a young couple.s quest for love being derailed by illness, death or other misfortune seems to be losing its allure at cinemas.

The Longest Ride, a romantic melodrama based on Sparks. 2013 novel, rang up $1.45 million on 220 screens, including previews, last weekend.

That.s better than the anaemic $758,000 debut last year of The Best of Me, which ended up with $2.2 million,. but it's debatable whether the film will have the legs to match previous Sparks adaptations such as The Notebook (which made $6.4 million back in 2004) and Nights in Rodanthe. ($4.55 million in 2008).

The Longest Ride follows the star-crossed love affair between Luke (Scott Eastwood, son of Clint), a former champion rodeo rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophie (Britt Robertson), a college student who's about to embark on her dream job in New York City's art world.

Alan Alda is along for the ride as Ira, »

‘Paddington’ Review

22 March 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, Ben Whishaw, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Matt Lucas | Written and Directed by Paul King

When characters from children’s television shows are translated onto the silver screen sometimes the results aren’t exactly positive.  Paddington is one of the movies where I would admit I was cynical and didn’t expect much, especially because of the age of the actual show.  Then a little magical viral madness took over and the spectacle of the “Scary Paddington” took over and it was perfect to get the bear noticed, showing how awesome the internet can be.  The fact is even without the crazy internet people, Paddington turned into something surprising and very charming.
