If you are a Maura Tierney fan (and if you aren’t, we should talk and set you right) Showtime’s The Affair Season 2 promises to be, er, a splendid affair if last night’s season premiere is any indication. Instead of adulterous couple Noah’s (Dominic West) and Alison’s (Ruth Wilson) dueling perspectives, this time we examined a stretch of time somewhere in between last season’s calamitous showdown at the Lockhart ranch and the unceremonious end to Noah and Alison’s happily ever after — from the points of view of the unfaithful dad and his beleaguered estranged wife Helen. (Tierney). • Miss the Season … Continue reading →

The Affair, Season 2, Episode 1: “201″
Written by Sarah Treem
Directed by Jeffrey Reiner
Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime
The first season of The Affair focused on the budding relationship between Noah Solloway and Alison Bailey, two individuals going through individual troubles who engaged in an extramarital affair with each other, resulting in the dissolution of both their marriages. The second season premiere picks up more or less where the first left off, but shifts the focus to the divorce of the Solloways and how it affects Noah, Helen, and those around them, particularly their children. The writers shift the perspective from Alison to Helen, allowing for a stronger episode in the process in a solid return for the series.
Watching Noah cope with the divorce is a fascinating aspect of the season premiere. Much of the first season put the focus on the relationship between Noah and Alison, »

[Warning: This article contains spoilers from the first episode of the second season of The Affair.] When The Affair premiered its second season on Sunday night, it showcased more Maura Tierney than ever before. The actress’ added screen time is a welcome consequence of the Showtime drama’s decision to expand its trademark point of view storytelling structure to include the perspectives of Tierney’s character, Helen, as well as Joshua Jackson’s Cole. Season one relied exclusively on Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) to carry the story, but now that the couple is finally together, there are fewer opportunities

Showtime’s “The Affair,” despite its titular adultery and steamy sex, may be one of the most elegantly chilly series currently on the air. Season 1 found writer Noah (Dominic West) and waitress Allison (Ruth Wilson) falling in love behind their respective spouses’ backs over the course of a summer in Montauk. Each episode cut back and forth from his and her perspectives, replete with telling differences–while a third, present-day narrative found them both recounting their stories to a suspicious police officer investigating a hit and run. Now Season 2 adds the voices of the jilted spouses to the mix, no. »

The Affair returns for its second season on Showtime this Sunday, and the series picks up close to where season one left off, with its strengths and weaknesses fully intact. It's a show that has moments of real drama and intrigue, unfortunately wrapped in a not-all-that-interesting split narrative. Did you know that people often self-mythlogize, especially in moments of crisis, trauma, or romance? Indeed they do. As we head into season two, here's a list of whom and what to care about, from the most to the least important. Helen In season one, our only perspective characters were Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Noah (Dominic West). In season two, Helen (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson) get added into the mix, too, so we get to see more of their lives sans original partners. Helen is the most interesting among the leads, especially as her life unravels before her. She's independently wealthy, »

The Affair was one of our favorite new series, let alone dramas, last year, and we certainly weren’t alone in that assessment, as it won the Golden Globe for best drama series. In its exploration of the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that shakes two marriages, Season 1 followed a Rashomon-style format by examining the memories of the two participants in the affair — Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson). Unsurprisingly, their recollections of the moments before, during and after the affair often differed wildly, and it was fascinating to watch West and Wilson play almost different … Continue reading →

Lionsgate U.K.’s increasing focus on investing in British movies to fill a major part of its distribution slate, alongside third-party acquisitions and titles from Lionsgate and Summit in the U.S., makes commercial sense, says Nick Manzi, head of production and acquisitions at Lionsgate U.K.
“There is an audience in this country for British films,” he says. “Every country wants to see stories about themselves, and we are lucky because we share the same language as America, so these films can travel — if you get them right.”
The aim is to give a wide release to the majority of its movies. “We look for stories that resonate with a broad audience,” he says. But Manzi warns that the distribution market has changed. “We are finding that there’s no in-between — there’s no middle ground. Films either work or they don’t.”

Exclusive: Trio of films to explore theme of the “the past”.
Israeli film-maker Avi Nesher is due to start shooting the first film in a trilogy of works devoted to the theme of ‘the past’ this autumn.
“They’re all based on really strange true stories,” Nesher told ScreenDaily.
“I was a film critic before I became a director. I figure that if I invent anything I’m probably ripping off old movies I once saw which is why I like to work with real-life flights of fantasy,” continued Nesher, whose credits include The Wonders(2013), The Matchmaker (2010) and The Secrets (2007).
“The past is a complicated issue in Israel. We deal with a Jewish past and an Israeli past. Sometimes they’re parallel, sometimes they’re the same, sometimes they’re »
