Watch: Michelle Williams Is Rattled By War In 2 Clips From 'Suite Francaise'

20 March 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The power of love is the only indestructible thing in the world. Hate is not going to get you anywhere, violence is not going to get you anywhere, cynicism is not going to get you anywhere, love will get you there. Love makes life worth living and that is it. Period," Matthias Schoenaerts told Rte Ten. This is a sentiment that powers the upcoming "Suite Francaise," and today a couple of clips from the wartime drama have landed.  Co-starring Michelle WilliamsKristin Scott Thomas, Margot RobbieRuth Wilson ("The Affair"), and Sam Riley, and based on the novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the story is set during World War II, in the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, and follows a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier stationed to look over her township. But horrors of war aren't hidden, and these clips (one via The Telegraph) show »

Dominic West and Ruth Wilson's The Affair to air on Sky Atlantic

20 March 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Affair will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland.

The Golden Globe-winning Showtime drama starring Dominic West and Ruth Wilson will premiere in May.

Sky has also picked up the rights for its upcoming second season.

The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair between Noah Solloway (West) and Alison Bailey (Wilson).

The story is told separately from both Noah and Alison's perspectives, using their distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.

Sky Atlantic director Zai Bennett said: "I'm delighted we have secured The Affair for Sky Atlantic.

"Its intricate storytelling and phenomenal acting sit perfectly on the channel, further cementing our channel's position as the home of quality drama in the UK."

The Affair also stars Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson and Julia Goldani Telles. Watch a trailer below: »

News Nuggets: Ready for a super competitive Emmy race for Best Drama Actress?

18 March 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Will this year's Emmy Awards race for Best Drama Actress be "super competitive" and one of the hardest to predict in recent memory? Two newcomers are predicted to be nominee locks: Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder") and Taraji P. Henson ("Empire"). Two recent champs that should be safe are Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") and Claire Danes ("Homeland"). After those names, there is an intense battle for the final two spots. Last year's nominees Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"), Kerry Washington ("Scandal"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards") could be back. Ruth Wilson ("The Affair") just won the Golden Globe. And there are at least a dozen more ladies with legitimate chances. Film Experience -Break- For the first time in almost 30 years, a Steven Spielberg film will not have John Williams composing its score. "Bridge ..." »

Movie Review – Suite Française (2015)

15 March 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suite Française, 2015.

Directed by Saul Dibb.

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Margot Robbie, Sam Riley and Ruth Wilson.

Synopsis:

During the early years of German occupation of France in World War II, romance blooms between Lucile Angellier, a French villager and Bruno von Falk, a German soldier.

We’ve seen romantic movies, we’ve seen war movies, and we’ve seen romantic movies set during a war so from the off Suite Française faces the unenviable task of setting itself aside from the rest. Thankfully director Saul Dibb’s keeps his film aimed squarely at the relationships between and evenly balances both love and war to ensure the film never runs flats or becomes to cliché ridden – something it could very easily have been.

France has become occupied by the Nazis and when a troop of German soldiers move in to the small town of Bussy a »

Suite Francaise review: Michelle Williams stars in a rote war romance

13 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Saul Dibb; Screenwriter: Matt Charman, Saul Dibb; Starring: Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ruth Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 15

Based on an unfinished novel by Irène Némirovsky, who wrote it shortly prior to her death in Auschwitz, Suite Française transforms an extraordinary story into a profoundly ordinary period drama. Tasking its potent performers with a stiff script and by-rote characterisations, the film feels endlessly in search of a dramatic thread worth paying off.

Lucile (Michelle Williams) is a lonely young woman living with her repressive and chilly mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) in the French village of Bussy during World War II. We learn through heavy-handed voiceover that her husband is away fighting, leaving her scarcely more emotionally neglected than she was in his company. When the village is occupied by German forces, Lucile is drawn to a sensitive Nazi soldier (Matthias Schoenaerts) who comes to stay in her too-empty home. »

Film Review: ‘Suite francaise’

10 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The title is the most authentically French thing about “Suite francaise,” a fusty but enjoyably old-fashioned WWII soap that, notwithstanding its Gallic locale, is otherwise characterized by a distinctly British brand of plumminess. Based on the bestselling unfinished novel by Irene Nemirovsky, this lightly perfumed tale of the tentative romance between a married Frenchwoman and an urbane Nazi soldier during the 1940 German occupation covers no new ground historically or stylistically, and is hampered by gauche narration that undermines the expressive delicacy of Michelle Williams’s headlining performance. Still, attractive mounting and casting — with the inspired choice of Matthias Schoenaerts as Williams’s co-lead paying off handsomely — could see this Weinstein Co. property make moderately “Suite” music in limited release.

In Blighty, where Entertainment One releases the pic on March 13, “Suite francaise” is likely to entice the older audience that failed to turn out for the comparable but superior wartime weepie »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Drama Series

10 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Unlike their male counterparts, all the actresses nominated in 2014 for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series are eligible again this year. That means someone is going to have to upset last year's winner Julianna Margulies as well as nominees Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"), Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Kerry Washington ("Scandal") or Robin Wright ("House of Cards") just to get into the race.  Who's got the best shot? Viola Davis, who many thought was a lock to win the Golden Globe, is a hot contender for freshman sensation "How to Get Away With Murder." Don't discount Ruth Wilson, though, who beat Davis for the trophy at the Globes for her role on "The Affair." Taraji P. Henson is also high on a lot of lists thanks to her show stopping role in "Empire," and no one should discount Elisabeth Moss for her final year of "Mad Men. »

Ruth Wilson believes The Affair too raunchy for UK

9 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Ruth Wilson believes 'The Affair' is too raunchy for British TV. The actress won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Alison Bailey in the first series of the drama, and although it has proved to be a hit on Showtime in the Us, she suspects the many sexual scenes may be holding it back from audiences in the UK. When asked why it hasn't been picked up by a British channel, she said: ''I've no idea. Maybe sexual content? I don't know, it's not that bad.'' However, the 33-year-old Brit - who stars opposite Dominic West in the programme - is »

Ruth Wilson: ‘People know me as my characters. They don’t know me’

8 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Following her Golden Globe-winning turn in Us drama The Affair, and her portrayal of a tough farmer’s wife in the forthcoming film Suite Française, Ruth Wilson’s forte for playing strong, complex women is helping her handle fame

Ruth Wilson, the 33-year-old British actress, has made a pretty well unimprovable start to 2015. In January, she won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her role in The Affair. The competition was daunting – Homeland’s Claire Danes and Viola Davis among them – but Wilson came through for her harrowing depiction of Alison, a waitress dealing with the death of her son who begins a liaison with an older writer played by Dominic West. Then, a couple of days after the awards, she made her Broadway debut in New York in Constellations, a two-hander opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. The reviews couldn’t have been more glowing if she’d written them herself. »

Game Of Thrones' Rose Leslie Joins Luther

4 March 2015 1:15 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A new two-part Luther special is underway, no doubt boasting all the growly detective work we’ve come to expect and love from everyone’s favourite bellowing London copper. What it won’t have, according to The Wrap’s scoop, is Ruth Wilson’s whipsmart sociopath to provide a menacing yin to the big man’s righteous yang. Instead, Game Of Thrones’ flinty Ygritte, Rose Leslie, has signed on for the show’s return, alongside The Inbetweeners Movie’s Laura Haddock.Leslie will play a new character called Emma Jones, although whether she’ll be filling the psycho gap remains to be. Wilson’s Alice Morgan was one of the best things in Luther’s previous three seasons, simultaneously sinister and alluring and occasionally even outmatching the careworn copper with a cool intellect that was always calculating, always running the numbers. Like an old-fashioned femme fatale or a flirtier Moriarty, »

Filming has begun on two one-hour long special episodes of the BBC's "Luther" with Idris Elba returning to the iconic role of the disgruntled Dci John Luther.

Cast regulars Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley are back, with guest stars for the specials including "Game of Thrones" duo Rose Leslie and Patrick Malahide, Laura Haddock ("Guardians of the Galaxy") and John Heffernan ("Ripper Street").

Watch: International Trailer, TV Spot And New Pics For 'Suite Française' With Michelle Williams & Matthias Schoenaerts

24 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sometimes ideas that are good on paper just don't work out in execution. Case in point: "Suite Française." A World War II drama/romance starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts sounds awesome, but the movie from director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess") quietly premiered for industry types at the American Film Market and is now being released internationally while it still awaits a stateside date from The Weinstein Company. Call it what you like, but it looks like the studio is feeling less hopeful about the film's prospects. A new dubbed, French trailer (via Michelle Williams Online) has arrived for the film, offering a glimpse at some new scenes along with UK TV spot.

Watch: New TV Spot for 'Suite Fran?aise' Starring Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas

23 February 2015 3:51 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Weinstein Company's World War II film The Imitation Game managed to pick up an Oscar for adapted screenplay at last night's ceremony. This year, they have Woman in Gold coming out in May, which has WW2 elements, and Suite Fran?aise coming out at some point later this year. My guess is they are going to vying for a late release, hoping to be apart of next year's award season. For those in the UK, the film opens on March 13th. I am not terribly excited to see yet another World War II-set film, but when a cast includes Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts, Margot Robbie, and Ruth Wilson, it is hard not to get my expectations high. The film is directed by Saul Dibb, whose last film was The Duchess. I know a lot of people thought it was just a rote costume drama, but I enjoyed it quite a lot, »

Michelle Williams Reteams With Kelly Reichardt on Untitled Drama (Exclusive)

17 February 2015 11:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michelle Williams is set to reteam with Kelly Reichardt on an untitled indie drama.

The project marks the third time the two have collaborated together, having previously worked on the Western drama “Meek’s Cutoff” and the drama “Wendy and Lucy,” both of which received critical acclaim and accolades from various festivals.

For “Wendy and Lucy,” Williams won best actress at the Toronto Film Festival and a nomination from the Indie Spirit awards, while “Meek’s Cutoff” brought in several honors from various festivals. The hopes are that this pic will bring similar critical praise.

Reichardt is writing and directing. Plot details are unknown at this time.

Williams recently signed on to star opposite Casey Affleck in Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester-by-the-Sea,” but sources say Williams will shoot this film first in the spring, with “Manchester-by-the-Sea” shooting later in the year.

Williams was most recently seen in “Suite Française” alongside Margot Robbie and Ruth Wilson. »
