Michelle Monaghan Doesn’t Obsess Over Her Body: ‘I Need to Be an Example for My Daughter’

8 February 2017 10:47 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After 14-hour days on set, Michelle Monaghan doesn’t always get in a workout — and that’s just fine with her.

The busy actress — who stars in films like The Path, Patriot’s Day and Sleepless, just to name a few — says she’s become less stressed about exercise over the years.

“I throw myself a bone and don’t get too worried about it,” Monaghan, 40, says in Shape’s March cover story. “I know that when I have time again, I can kick it up a notch.”

One of the main reasons is that she doesn’t want her »

Michael Sheen and Michelle Monaghan set for The Price of Admission

7 February 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has revealed that Michael Sheen (Passengers) and Michelle Monaghan (The Path) have signed on to star in writer-director Peter Glanz’s (The Longest Week) next project, the dramedy-thriller The Price of Admission.

The film will centre on “a middling playwright (Sheen) amidst a mid-life crisis and failing marriage. His wife (Monaghan) is tired of being second-fiddle to his work, she wants a family. But incapable of functioning in reality, he submerges himself in an elaborate play about his life.”

Sheen most recently starred in Passengers alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, while Monaghan was last seen in Peter Berg’s Boston Marathon bombing drama Patriots Day, and stars alongside Aaron Paul and Hugh Dancy in Hulu’s The Path.

Newswire: Michael Sheen and Michelle Monaghan to star in Birdman-style “existential” drama

7 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Variety, Michael Sheen and Michelle Monaghan are set to star in The Price Of Admission, a film described as “a unique story that’s part dramedy and part existential thriller” and is said to be “in the tradition of Being John Malkovich and Birdman.” Sheen will be a “middling playwright” suffering from a midlife crisis, and Monaghan will play his frustrated wife who is tired of being ignored. It’s unclear where the weirdo Birdman or Being John Malkovich-style magical realism twist will come in, but there pretty much has to be one if those are the two movies The Price Of Admission is being compared to.

The project comes from writer/director Peter Glanz, who previously wrote and directed that Jason Bateman-starring Longest Week from 2014.

Michael Sheen And Michelle Monaghan Will Pay The Price Of Admission For Director Peter Glanz

7 February 2017 10:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between Showtime’s award-winning Masters of Sex and The Path, Michael Sheen and Michelle Monaghan have found success on the small screen in recent years, but The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the talented duo is bound for cinema once more for The Price of Admission.

Writer-director Peter Glanz is fostering development, and the elevator pitch put forward by THR evokes comparisons to Being John Malkovich and Birdman, with a dash of Charlie Kaufman’s signature identity crises thrown in for good measure. Sheen will take point as Harold Sugar, a creative struggling to cope with an existential crisis. Monaghan, meanwhile, plays his wife Eliza, who wants nothing more than to settle down and start a family, leading Harold to spiral into his own fabricated comfort zone of fictitious plays and fantastical stories.

Here’s the official pitch:

‘Please Like Me’ Creator Josh Thomas on Ending The Show With Season 4, And What’s Next For Him

2 February 2017 3:08 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The charming Australian dramedy “Please Like Me,” which has built an international following over the course of four seasons, is officially coming to a close. Creator/star Josh Thomas made the announcement Thursday on social media, posting that “Ultimately we decided this because we are really happy with what we’ve made and feel like it is complete.”

Please Like Me” was a coming-of-age story anchored around the awkward yet sweet-natured Josh (Thomas) juggling a complicated family life (including a clinically depressed mother), an eccentric crew of friends, and his emerging sexuality. The series had suffered a major setback prior to the premiere of Season 4, when its original American distributor, the cable network Pivot, closed up shop. Fortunately, Hulu (which was already streaming Seasons 1-3) agreed to pick up the fourth season, releasing it last month to U.S. audiences.

Aaron Paul and James Corden Break into ‘The Price is Right’ to Seek Redemption For a Past Gameshow Loss

2 February 2017 10:32 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

17 years ago, Aaron Paul “suffered the heartbreak of his life.” The year was 2000, and a pre-famed Paul was chosen as a contestant on “The Price is Right.” Unfortunately, the 20-year-old’s heartbreak came when he lost his Showcase Showdown after overbidding on a sports car.

Now years later, the “Breaking Bad” star is seeking redemption by returning to “The Price is Right” and getting a second chance at winning. During “The Late Late Show,” Paul and James Corden broke onto the set and went through the show’s entire process, recreating the experience for the Emmy Award-winning actor.

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perception

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2017 10:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.  

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these »

Everyone at Sundance Is Wearing These Turtlenecks and Tights – Here’s How to Get Your Own

27 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you’ve been flipping through our Sundance style gallery – and of course you have, because where else would you get all your coat- and boot-spiration? – you may have noticed a few themes. The first: Everyone is wearing jeans or tights (duh, it’s cold). The second: Parkas are becoming a fashion statement in their own right. The third: Layering dresses over turtlenecks is the new hotness. And as it turns out, one brand in particular has cornered the market on the tights and turtlenecks every star was using as the foundations of their outfits.

‘Sidney Hall’ Review: This Narcissistic Mystery Is a Manipulative Mix of Cinema’s Ugliest Tropes — Sundance 2017

26 January 2017 10:13 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first indication something is horribly awry in Shawn Christensen’s “Sidney Hall” announces itself early on, thanks to a scene in which the precocious eponymous character (Logan Lerman, who also produced) reads aloud an essay, one dedicated to the middle-school object of his masturbatory obsessions, in his high school class. His classmates are alternately amused and disgusted, his pal Brett (Blake Jenner) is super into it, and his teacher is rightly offended. “Sidney Hall” makes its allegiances clear immediately — Sidney is smart and funny, the teacher is a square, the world is unfairly against him — and that perspective pervades the rest of the execrable film.

Sidney gets away with the stunt (he’s even supported by an English teacher who thinks it’s justified by Sidney’s wit), and so does the film itself. Initially it seems as if “Sidney Hall” will just be another film about lone geniuses »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Sidney Hall’

25 January 2017 11:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are few things more frustrating than a mystery without a satisfying conclusion, unless it’s a mystery that didn’t need to be a mystery in the first place. “Sidney Hall” strings its audience along on a tedious journey that runs out of steam long before reaching an embarrassingly overwrought finale. A cast of promising young talent, led by Logan Lerman and Elle Fanning, struggle with a messy script co-written by Jason Dolan and director Shawn Christensen (“Before I Disappear”), but this shouldn’t register as more than a blip in long careers.

We’re introduced to precocious protagonist Sidney (Lerman) as he reads aloud his sexually explicit story about a popular cheerleader to his high school English class. The teacher had assigned students to write about the meaning of life, and Sidney’s effort is masturbatory in more ways than one. The lurid introduction is played as a joke, »

“Filmmaking Is a Series of Crushing Compromises”: Dp Daniel Katz on Sidney Hall

25 January 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Shawn Christensen’s second feature following his Oscar-winning short Curfew, Sidney Hall chronicles the tumultuous life of a writer at the ages of 18, 24 and 30. The film boasts an impressive cast (Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Lane) to supports its titular lead, played by Logan Lerman. Below, cinematographer Daniel Katz speaks to Filmmaker about the cameras, lenses and lighting approaches he used to distinguish each era of Sidney’s life. Sidney Hall held its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. Filmmaker: How and why did you wind up being the cinematographer of your film? What were the factors […] »

‘The Path’ Review: Season 2 Blurs the Line Between Cult and Clergy in Righteous, Riveting Fashion

25 January 2017 11:42 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For anyone who’s been introduced to the world of cults through “Going Clear” (Lawrence Wright’s book or Alex Gibney’s documentary inspired by it), “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” or other, less celebrity-focused “movements,” the second season of “The Path” should serve as an ideal next step in learning how to think about the dangerous, addictive, and often completely legal faith organizations. Parallels to Scientology abound, especially when acquiring tax-exempt status drives the narrative.

But Season 2, like its stellar predecessor, isn’t trying to be a Scientology story. It’s not even primarily a cult story. Instead of aiming to recreate true events within its fictional world, Hulu’s compelling drama connects big bad cults and accepted religious institutions. Its subtle and direct threads carry immense power when tied together, making Season 2 neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of faith, but a call to see the light »
