‘The Intervention’ Exclusive Clip: A Group of Friends Confront a Couple’s Toxic Marriage During a Weekend Getaway

26 August 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone knows a couple whose behavior prompts the question, “How are they still together?” Clea DuVall’s debut feature film “The Intervention” takes that question to the next level by actually staging a couple intervention. The film follows Annie (Melanie Lynskey) and her fiancé Matt (Jason Ritter) who plan a getaway weekend as an excuse to confront Ruby (Cobie Smulders) and Peter (Vincent Piazza) about their toxic relationship. They invite along two other couples — Jessie (DuVall) and Sarah (Natasha Lyonne) and Jack (Ben Schwartz) and his 22-year-old girlfriend Lola (Alia Shawkat) — in order to ease the tension, but everyone’s presence inevitably ratchets up the awkwardness. Soon, problems arise, secrets are revealed, and relationships are tested as they all start to examine their own lives and connections with others. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Film Review: The Intervention

26 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Anxieties of thirtysomethings are a tale as old as time. A few weeks ago the melancholic Joshy reminded us of the challenges young men face growing up today, and it was only about three decades ago that Glenn Close and William Hurt gave us The Big Chill. So another movie about close friends dealing with life and each other is not necessarily an innovative concept. But a new indie flick from Sundance, The Intervention, delivers a worthwhile and funny twist on the concept with its gut wrenchingly honest dialogue and a subtly brilliant performance by Melanie Lynskey from Two and a Half Men.

Lynskey’s character, Annie, has summoned her lifelong friends to a weekend getaway at their pal Jesse’s estate outside Savannah. Jesse is played by Clea DuVall, who also directed the film. But it’s not fun and games Annie has in mind. She’s coopted the others, »

The Intervention and There Is a New World Somewhere movies review: women on the verge

25 August 2016 6:18 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Two movies about women at crossroads in their lives explore the sort of personal crisis — lost mojo! — typically reserved for men onscreen. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Women at crossroads in their lives. Women who feel their worlds falling apart and don’t know what to do about it. Women who’ve lost their mojo… or never even found it in the first place. These are not the sorts of personal crises that we typically see women experiencing onscreen (though men have countless cinematic examples to follow when they find themselves in a rut). So I was delighted to discover two films that fall into the sparsely populated subgenre of Women Who Go in Search of a Kick in the Butt (Though They Might Not Realize That’s What They »

‘Narcos’ Season 2 Trailer: Pablo Escobar Reigns Terror After Escaping Prison

23 August 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The search for Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) is on in the new trailer for Season 2 of “Narcos,” the Netflix drama that chronicles the life of the infamous Colombian drug kingpin. After having escaped prison untouched, everyone including the DEA, the Cali Cartel, Los Pepes and the search bloc want payback. It won’t be an easy task ahead for all since “Pablo is never more dangerous than when you almost have him.”

In the second season, DEA agents Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) continue their pursuit to end the drug trade and, along with various other groups, want Escobar dead.

“Putting an end to Pablo, is a patriotic act,” says a member of Los Pepes, a vigilante group composed of Escobar enemies.

‘Stranger Things’: How the Netflix’s Drama’s Sonic Environment Was Created

22 August 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you’re an audiophile who also loves “Stranger Things,” then brother, have I got the interview for you. The sonically inclined folks at A Sound Effect recently spoke to Brad North and Craig Henighan — the Netflix drama’s supervising sound editor and sound designer, respectively — about all things strange, from how they got involved with the ’80s-set show to its now-famous synth score to those attention-grabbing light bulbs. Find some highlights of their chat (which was presumably recorded on the finest equipment available) below.
