Michelle Williams Is Tempted By Desire In Trailer For WWII Drama Suite Francaise

23 October 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

World War II dramas are prime contenders for Oscar consideration. It’s an accepted fact. Yet, The Weinstein Company are steering one of their upcoming titles, Suite Francaise, toward a far less starry showcase. Its world premiere will take place at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this November – and depending on its reception, it may hit Us screens in the new year. Whatever happens, there’s still plenty of buzz surrounding the pic, which looks to contain another compelling performance from Michelle Williams.

Based on the best-selling novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the film is set during the German occupation of France and chronicles a romantic affair between an unlikely couple. Williams takes on the role of a French woman who falls for a Nazi officer (Matthias Schoenaerts) who commandeers charge of her town.

The latest trailer that’s arrived today focuses on the tension between the couple, as »

The Affair, Ep. 1.02: “2″ further explores the central characters

20 October 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Maura Tierney, Dominic West

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 2: “2″

Written by Sarah Treem

Directed by Jeffrey Reiner

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

The series premiere of The Affair made one thing clear; through a combination of selective storytelling and selective memory, Noah and Alison could recount the same events and paint them vastly differently, indicating that neither one was being fully truthful. This week’s episode delves further into the story of the two individuals, painting a fuller picture of their relationships with other people in their lives, and giving an idea of why the two engaged in adultery, and how each of them feels about the events that followed, in an episode that keeps up the show’s excellent quality.

Noah’s perspective on events this week let some truths slip, despite his best efforts. Listening to the accounts of both Noah and Alison, one thing is »

So, who's dead on 'The Affair'? Fiona Apple helps us figure it out

20 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The Affair has been labeled the Rashomon of marriage dramas, thanks to its he said/she said structure—but it's also a pretty compelling mystery. The two main characters, Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), are telling the story of their affair to a detective who appears to be investigating a murder. So far, all we know is this: Someone died. And that someone is a man, probably a local, though he was run down on a road that's primarily used by tourists. And he died the night of a party. And Alison misses him now that he's gone. »

All the Rashomon Moments From Last Night’s Premiere of The Affair

13 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The affair on The Affair had barely gotten started by the end of last night's premiere, but the show's stylistic conceit — each episode is told first from the Pov of Noah (Dominic West), then Alison (Ruth Wilson) — was already in full swing. How differently did the pair of extramarital lovers recall their first interactions? In the words of co-creator Sarah Treem, "We remember ourselves as witnesses in our own lives, and ... other people as actors." The proof, in GIFs, below.Noah and Allison meet for the first time when she serves his family at a roadside diner in Montauk, but their meet-cute is interrupted when his youngest daughter starts choking on a marble. In Noah’s memory, he’s the unabashed hero of the story, singlehandedly saving his daughter’s life. The second time around, both Noah and his wife are paralyzed with fear and it’s only Alison’s »

13 October 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Showtime's newest drama premiered last night, and if you're a TV fan who hasn't seen it yet, you're going to want to fix that immediately. Not only does it boast an odd yet excellent assortment of incredible actors from incredible shows – Dominic West from The Wire, Maura Tierney from ER, Ruth Wilson from Luther, and Joshua Jackson from Fringe (or let's be real – Dawson's Creek) – but it's also the best new drama of the season.  There. We said it.  It's also not at all what you think! Not just a show about an affair, but memory, and how vastly people's recollections can differ...Making for a truly unique premise for the show in which everyone is »

'The Affair' co-creator Sarah Treem on the pilot and 'Peter Pan'

13 October 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

In the first half of the pilot Showtime's The Affair, Alison (Ruth Wilson), one-half of the couple set to engage in the act that gives the show its title, tells Noah (Dominic West) that her favorite book is Peter Pan. He quotes it back to her, and they flirtatiously talk about how though it's meant to be a children's book it's actually "terrifying." In the second half, told from Alison's perspective, Alison reads the book at the grave of her child. If co-creator Sarah Treem had it her way, characters would constantly be quoting Peter Pan. Treem hones in on »

The seeds for Showtime’s The Affair were planted on Sunday night — will you be sticking around to see how this “He Said, She Said” drama plays out?

Co-created by In Treatment‘s Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi, The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire) as Noah Solloway, a New York City school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on Long Island.

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Teleplay by Sarah Treem, Story by Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

Over the past few years, shows such as In Treatment, The Wire, Fringe, and Luther have all garnered widespread critical acclaim.

Focusing on two couples and the toll an extramarital affair has on both, the new series stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, and Maura Tierney, and uses multiple perspectives to look at the same event from different angles. The show’s pilot episode indicates these talents have not been wasted, as it delivers an engrossing episode that uses its unique storytelling structure to great effect, while painting a compelling mystery populated by strong characters. »

Joshua Jackson on 'The Affair's' Two Storylines and Playing a "Pretty Dark Character"

12 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's The Affair premiere.] Joshua Jackson has played good-guy roles in Dawson's Creek and, more recently, Fox's Fringe. But he's taken a darker turn in The Affair, playing Cole Lockhart, the husband of Ruth Wilson's Alison. "I think there is a great liberty in allowing the ugliness that can happen between humans just to happen," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. In Cole's first scene of the newly premiered Showtime drama, he sexually assaults his wife — or at least, that's how the scene is shown from the perspective of Noah (Dominic West),

Series premiere talkback: 'The Affair'

12 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I posted my review of Showtime's "The Affair" a few days ago (along with an interview with Sarah Treem). Now it's your turn. For those who tuned in tonight — or watched the pilot on YouTube or On Demand earlier — what did you think? Can you forgive Dominic West for cheating on Maura Tierney, or Ruth Wilson for cheating on Joshua Jackson? Did you find one perspective more interesting — or more "real" — than the other? Did you get tired of seeing some of the same scenes twice, or were the differences interesting enough? How did you feel about the prank Noah's son pulls, especially coming so soon before the incident at the restaurant with his daughter? If you're a "Wire" fan, did you laugh at John Doman again scolding Dominic West? And will you watch again? Have at it. »

'The Affair' co-creator Sarah Treem: 'We wanted to tell a story about two good people'

10 October 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The premise of Showtime’s “The Affair” — in which Dominic West and Ruth Wilson get together, cheating on, respectively, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson — didn’t much interest me when I heard about it, even when those actors were involved. Then I heard that Sarah Treem was one of the creators and the lead writer, and my tune started to change. Treem, a playwright turned screenwriter, was on staff for all three seasons of HBO’s great “In Treatment” — she was, in fact, the only writer to be with the show for all three years — and helped craft the episodes involving three of my favorite characters: Sophie the gymnast, April the cancer patient and Jesse the teen in search of his birth parents. (As the youngest writer on the show, she inevitably got assigned the youngest characters.) As it turns out, I really liked the pilot for “The Affair,” which Treem created with Hagai Levi, »

Joshua Jackson Reveals How The Affair Lured Him Back to TV

10 October 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After five seasons of dealing with the grueling production schedule on Fox’s Fringe, Joshua Jackson had no desire to do another television series.

But just as it is for the characters at the center of his new TV gig, temptation was hard to resist.

In Showtime’s The Affair (premiering Sunday at 10/9c), Jackson stars as Cole, a Montauk, N.Y. rancher struggling alongside his wife Alison (played by Luther‘s Ruth Wilson) over the loss of their child. While Cole copes by closing himself off, Alison starts a dalliance with visiting, married writer Noah (The Wire’s Dominic West »

You’ll Want to Embrace the Mystery in Showtime’s The Affair

10 October 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At first glance, you wouldn’t think of The Affair as being mainly a show about marriage. Narrated via flashback from what we soon discover is a police interrogation and switching perspectives every half-hour, the series seems like it’s trying to be James M. Cain by way of John Irving: A blocked Brooklyn novelist named Noah Solloway (Dominic West) and a waitress named Alison (Ruth Wilson) meet during the Solloways’ summer vacation in Montauk and forge a connection that leads to artfully elided tragedy. But series creators Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi (masterminds of the great and terminally underrated In Treatment) treat the noirish aspects as a means to an end. This show is less interested in procedural details than in examining the ways in which couples and their children grow over time, and then grow apart — and even more so the tendency of first-person experience to distort »

The Affair Cast Talks Infidelity Stigma, Dual Roles, 'Mind-Blowing' Sex Trope

9 October 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Showtime this Sunday at 10/9c invites you to lay witness to The Affair that ignites between an aspiring novelist and a Hamptons waitress, each uniquely unhappy in their respective marriages.

But whereas TV’s most recent bid to revolve a premise on infidelity, ABC’s one-and-done Betrayal, left people cold, this new drama presents the illicit relationship from two distinct points of view — that of the aforementioned waitress, Alison (played by Luther‘s Ruth Wilson), and Hamptons vacationer Noah (The Wire‘s Dominic West). Joshua Jackson (Fringe) and Maura Tierney (ER), meanwhile, play Alison and Noah’s respective mates, Cole and Helen. »

Maura Tierney's Affair With Cable: How the Network TV Darling Is Mixing It Up on Showtime

9 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Maura Tierney is dipping her toe into unfamiliar waters, and we're not talking about those off the shore of Montauk; the Emmy nominee is heading to cable with The Affair. Tierney spent almost 10 years on ER, NBC's hit medical drama. Before that there was nearly 100 episodes of the comedy NewsRadio. Stints on Rescue Me, The Good Wife and a short-lived legal drama The Whole Truth followed, but now Tierney is heading to Showtime for the provocative new drama costarring Dominic West, Ruth Wilson and Joshua Jackson. "Initially, I had really wanted to work on cable television. I was on network TV for about 15 years or so, which I loved. I was on two amazing shows on network, but I've never worked without »

Review: Showtime's complicated, engrossing 'The Affair'

9 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I was a happy man back then," Noah  explains. "Was proud of my family. My first book had just come out. Everything I'd promised myself I would achieve as a young man, I'd done it." "But?" he's asked. And Noah replies, "That's the thing: There is no 'but.' When I look back, I can't tell you why it happened." "It" is the subject of "The Affair," the new drama premiering Sunday at 10 on Showtime, and the most complicated and interesting thing the show does is to make it clear that there was no obvious explanation for Noah cheating on his wife. Sometimes, affairs happen because partners aren't getting along, because one of them has a weakness the other can't help with, or because one partner just got bored with the other. Sometimes, though, they just happen. "The Affair" offers a little from Column A, a little from Column B. »

Showtime’s ‘The Affair’ Aims to ‘Create Art on Television,’ Says Exec Producer Sarah Treem

7 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the same day Showtime announced it would be bringing “Twin Peaks” back in 2016, the network sponsored a glitzy Montauk-in-Manhattan premiere for its contemplative new drama “The Affair,” premiering the first episode Monday in a New York ballroom decked out with wicker chairs.Starring Brits Dominic West and Ruth Wilson as a pair of clandestine lovers — he’s a Brooklyn-based public school teacher named Noah, she’s a blue-collar waitress named Allison — the show’s recipe includes a unique he-said/she-said structure, with every episode split in half, telling its story from each of their incongruous memories. (Introducing the episode, Showtime president David Nevins described it as “a really sticky story.”)

“We’re trying, hard, to create art on television,” said co-creator Sarah Treem. “We’re not trying to make the shows difficult, or more complex than usual, but we are trying to use television as a medium that could, »
