Review: ‘Sand Castle’ Gets to the Heart of War’s Futility

21 April 2017 3:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Similar to lead character Pvt. Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), screenwriter Chris Roessner joined the United States Army in July of 2001 to serve in the Reserves and earn college money. Two months later 9/11 changed everything. Suddenly he was thrust into a full-scale war in the Middle East and he needed to steel himself to that fact. He wasn’t in the Special Forces, Navy SEALs or Marines — he was just a soldier walking onto the frontlines like the rest. His story wasn’t one of unanimous heroics wherein he proved crucial to earning that “Mission Accomplished” banner everyone remembers as empty sentiment. Like so many military men and women, he entered Iraq at the beginning of something still unfinished today and left well before any true strides were made.

Roessner survived his stint and returned home with journals and photos depicting his experience. He took that money and enrolled in USC’s film school, »

Trailer for Medical Drama 'Brain On Fire' Starring Chloë Grace Moretz

21 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"To put it simply - her brain is on fire." An odd trailer has debuted for the film Brain on Fire, a medical mystery psychological drama from Irish director Gerard Barrett. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a young woman who starts going mad after she begins to experience really terrible seizures, and her life falls apart as a result. Based on the true story of Susannah Cahalan. The full cast includes Richard Armitage, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tyler Perry, Thomas Mann, Vincent Gale, Nicole Laplaca, Navid Negahban, Agam Darshi, with an appearance by Jenny Slate. This is a weird trailer that throws a curveball part of the way through, then gets laughably cheesy at the end. The footage is okay, but the title cards are the worst. Here's the first official trailer for Gerard Barrett's Brain On Fire, direct from YouTube: Susannah Cahalan (Chloë Grace Moretz), a journalist at the New York Post, »
