Cate Blanchett gets a new sparring partner, Kristen Wiig

19 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Murtada

Cate Blanchett always manages to get sizzling chemistry with her female co-stars, whether the story they are in is sapphic or not. She had it with Judi Dench playing the architect of her destruction in Notes on a Scandal (2007). And with Sally Hawkins as her curtseying worse gened adoptive sister in Blue Jasmine (2013). Most famously, she had it with Rooney Mara as the girl flung out of space in Carol (2015). In the same movie she etched a believable and palpable friendship with Sarah Paulson. We assume she’ll do it again with Paulson next year in Ocean’s Eight (and with Sandra Bullock, Rihanna et al).Those set pictures don’t lie. And now we can add Kristen Wiig to the list.

They already make each other laugh

In the adaptation of Maria Semple’s bestselling novel Where’d You Go, Bernadette, to be directed by Richard Linklater, »

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

Read More: 2018 Oscar Predictions

Audiences got their first looks at Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Lawrence’s winning Best Actress performances at fall festivals Toronto or Telluride, so we may not have a clear view of this category until September.

Cannes may give us some early clues, when Golden Globe and Cesar-winner Isabelle Huppert is expected to resurface in Michael Haneke’s “Happy End.” Woody Allen’s upcoming “Wonder Wheel” could reveal whether Kate Winslet could enjoy the same kind of awards season run that Cate Blanchett had in the lead-up to her “Blue Jasmine” win.

Last year’s Toronto breakout Florence Pugh (“Lady Macbeth”) and Sundance rising star Danielle MacDonald (“Patti Cake$”) could join former nominee Carey Mulligan (“Mudbound”) in contention.

Check back in June when Nicole Kidman gets a chance to shine in Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.”

A list of early possibilities is below. »

Richard Linklater’s ‘Before’ Trilogy Hits Criterion: Everything You Need to Know About the Romantic Saga, According to Its Creators

1 March 2017 12:46 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy encapsulates the way love feels in a way few films can match. Twenty years in the making, the story of Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) follows the beginning (“Before Sunrise,” 1995), re-beginning (“Before Sunset,” 2004), and eventual strain (“Before Midnight,” 2013) of one relationship. And the Criterion Collection has released a 2K restoration of the three films, along with hours of bonus features and behind-the-scenes footage.

Cate Blanchett on Crafting a Career, One Choice at a Time: Awards Season Flashback

24 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today’s flashback winner is “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.”]

In a career that already seen five Oscar nominations and one win for a body of work that includes remarkable performances as Queen Elizabeth, Bob Dylan and Katherine Hepburn, no less, Cate Blanchett somehow topped herself this year.

As the title character in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” Blanchett plays a woman whose wealthy husband (Alec Baldwin) has lost all their money, forcing her to abandon their upper class Manhattan life to live with her working class sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco. Even at this point, Jasmine is somewhere past the verge of a nervous breakdown, and Blanchett manages her character’s subsequent further spiraling with a tour-de-force authenticity that blew away audiences and critics alike.

Leading into the Oscars, Blanchett has already won a slew of kudos for “Blue Jasmine,” including a Golden Globe, honors from the New York and Los Angeles critics groups and nominations from SAG, »

‘My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea’ Trailer: Hilariously Bizarre Comedy on the Brink of the End of the World — Watch

23 February 2017 10:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Children are the future. Not a new idea. Not a totally original idea. Yet, it’s a proven fact that the younger generation dictates the direction of the future. “My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea” subverts this traditional idea creating a darkly comedic and crude animated comedy. This is Dash Shaw’s (a celebrated cartoonist) first feature, and it does not disappoint.

After screening in Telluride and Toronto last fall, “Maudie” is finally ready to tell the masses about the life of Canadian artist Maud Lewis.

The film takes place in Nova Scotia circa the 1930s and finds the desperate artist taking a job working for a fish peddler played by Ethan Hawke.

Sally Hawkins Creates Art in First Trailer for ‘Maudie’

20 February 2017 6:54 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sally Hawkins, who has delivered no shortage of remarkable performances in Happy-Go-Lucky, Blue Jasmine, and more, is back this year with a new biopic. Aisling Walsh‘s Maudie, which premiered at Telluride Film Festival last fall, captures the life of Maud Lewis, a Canadian folk artist who suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Also starring Ethan Hawke, the film depicts their tumultuous relationship amidst Maud’s creativity, and today brings the first trailer, fittingly hailing from Canada, where it’ll be released in April, a few months prior to its U.S. debut.

We said in our review, “The committed relationship the two undertook stands at the heart of Maudie. Hawkins further proves her range, portraying Lewis as a shy, slouched, but talented woman that almost never looks at anyone in the eyes, her head always down. Hawke is miscast as Everett in a role that demands a tough aggressiveness, but »

Berlinale 2017: Maudie Review

16 February 2017 8:55 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

There’s an indelibly warm and tender tone to Aisling Walsh’s real-life drama Maudie, albeit one spiked with a deep sadness and profundity. Finding a compatible balance between the two, there’s no denying the Irish director’s latest is a moving piece of cinema – it just plays a little safe, as the sort of title you’d be thrilled to stumble across on the telly on a Sunday evening, but not one you’d necessarily need to indulge in on the big screen.

Set in Nova Scotia, we meet Maud (Sally Hawkins), eavesdropping on a conversation between her brother and auntie, as they deliberate over what to do with her. For Maud arthritis and a hunched back, and has been treated like an outsider ever since she can remember. Wanting to keep herself occupied, she responds to an advert to be a housemaid at the humble abode of the introverted, »

Maudie review [Berlinale]: Dir. Aisling Walsh (2017)

15 February 2017 12:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Maudie review: Sally Hawkins skilfully portrays Nova Scotia artist Maud Lewis in this quaint, sweet biopic from Irish filmmaker Aisling Walsh.

Maudie review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.

Maudie review

Maudie is the latest film from celebrated television director Aisling Walsh, and is the follow-up feature following her work on 2003’s Song For A Raggy Boy and her feature film debut Joyriders all of the way back in 1988.

This film is easily her biggest and most ambitious yet. Written by Sherry White, Maudie is based on the true story of Maud Dowley (Sally Hawkins), a Nova Scotia resident who suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. We’re introduced to her at a time in her life when her mother and father have passed away and the family home has been passed on to her brother, which was common practise at the time. Her brother, Charles (here played by »

Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in the Exclusive first trailer for MaudieSally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in the Exclusive first trailer for MaudieAdriana Floridia2/15/2017 11:17:00 Am

The incredible true story of Canadian artist Maud Lewis comes to the big screen this spring.

We are so excited to debut the Exclusive first trailer for this film that shines a light on a relatively unknown Canadian figure. We caught the film when it played the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, and can attest to the fact that Sally Hawkins will be a major awards contender for her performance.

Maud Lewis battled with arthritis from a young age and it made life both physically and emotionally difficult, yet she always persevered and accomplished more than most could. A fearless woman, Maud always pursued her desires, and became a renowned artist even despite how physically hard it was for her »
