Filming underway on Clio Barnard’s Dark River starring Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley and Sean Bean

21 June 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Principal photography has commenced on Dark River, the new feature film from The Selfish Giant and The Arbor writer-director Clio Barnard, who has assembled a cast that includes Ruth Wilson (The Affair), Mark Stanley (Game of Thrones) and Sean Bean (The Martian). Here’s the official synopsis…

Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns to her home village for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy to the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there she is confronted by a brother (Mark Stanley) she barely recognises, worn down by years of trying to keep the farm going, who is naturally hostile to her arrival and her claim over the tenancy. Their dispute unearths traumatic memories for Alice, memories which have remained dormant for years but which now threaten both of their futures.

Dark River is a visceral, haunting and lyrical story and we »

5 British TV Shows That Successfully Crossed the Pond

7 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

British shows have never been more popular in the U.S. than they are now. Thanks to the explosion of online streaming sites, Americans can get their fix of British TV in a way that would have been difficult even 10 years ago.

Here are a few British TV shows that really struck a chord with American audiences.

1. 'The Office (UK)' (2001 - 2003)

Before Michael Scott, there was David Brent. Hilarious, cringe-worthy, and frankly brilliant, "The Office" was just two seasons and a Christmas special of some of the best comedy ever made. You can't compare the original to the American remake, simply because both are hilarious -- yet very different -- shows. No one who ever saw Brent's insane Comic Relief day dance will ever forget it. The 2003 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series -- Musical or Comedy was well-deserved, and Brent's portrayal kicked off a stellar career for Ricky Gervais. »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 ­­— yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.
