Toronto Film Review: ‘Mary Goes Round’

15 September 2017 4:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A prodigal daughter returns in “Mary Goes Round,” discovering that the personal problems she’s been studiously ignoring only grow more inescapable in the presence of the estranged family members who more or less caused them. Molly McGlynn’s somewhat autobiographically inspired debut feature bears a certain resemblance to James Ponsoldt’s 2012 “Smashed,” with a similar young, middle-class alcoholic as heroine. But this film is lighter in tone, successfully blending drama and humor in a way that skirts pat dramedy. This modest but winning effort should do well on the festival circuit, and possibly beyond.

Mary (Aya Cash) is a 29-year-old Toronto resident with a serious partying jones. When after a latest inebriate night we see her among an addicts’ support group, we assume she’s ready to mend her ways. Then we realize she’s the meeting’s (not very good) facilitator. Working as a professional substance-abuse counselor gives Mary additional incentive to deny she’s »

Performer of the Week: Sarah Paulson

9 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Sarah Paulson

The Show | American Horror Story: Cult

The Episode | “Election Night” (Sept. 5, 2017)

The Performance | Going into Cult’s premiere, we so expected another fine performance from Paulson, a four-time Emmy nominee for her work in past Ahs seasons, that we didn’t really anticipate being surprised. We’ve seen her play scared before, after all — a lot. But Ryan Murphy’s muse managed to not only impress but stun us with the intensity of the fear that she was able to conjure up.

In fact, we’d only just met her new character Ally, a married lesbian mom and coulrophobia sufferer, »

Tiff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Molly McGlynn — “Mary Goes Round”

7 September 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Mary Goes Round

Molly McGlynn is a Canadian writer and director. Her previous short films include “I Am Not a Weird Person,” “Shoes,” and “3-Way (Not Calling).” “Mary Goes Round” is her first feature film. In 2015, she was selected as a Talent Lab Resident at the Reykjavik International Film Festival and as a Samsung Tiff Emerging Director.

Mary Goes Round” will premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Mm: “Mary Goes Round” is largely about overcoming alienation, both personal and familial, and the relief that comes with the acceptance. The film centers around a substance abuse counselor who returns to her childhood home after a DUI to meet her half-sister but learns that her estranged father is dying of cancer.

It’s about a woman who is forced to take care of a parent who she thinks let her down while simultaneously dealing with her personal demons for the sake of a teenage girl.

In the end, it’s about acts of love and taking care — not in the inane, vague email sign-off way but in a way that involves kindness and self-awareness. I wanted to unravel the sometimes circuitous way of viewing ourselves and assumptions about family relationships.

It sounds super heavy, but there’s a lot of humor and levity as well. Probably has something to do with Irish Catholic roots, but I find the darkest moments in are lives can also be the most morbidly funny as well.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Mm: It was one I needed to tell. I think there’s an old saying about making the film you need to before the one you should? It’s not autobiographical, but in many ways, I drew upon my experiences with self-identity and my relationship to my family. In making this film, I was able to create an alternate reality where I could creatively explore my deepest fears, regrets, and hopes that may or may not play out in real life.

Probably the most powerful moment on set for me was seeing a scene that was quite difficult for me to write emotionally and watching Aya Cash, who plays Mary, bring something that was totally hers to the performance. It is an amazing thing to see an actor take your words and transform them to something that belongs to them. There is comfort in how unoriginal the narratives of lives really are.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

Mm: I want people to be moved and hopefully have laughed a bit, but maybe they will think about the parts of themselves or their history that they’ve avoided and what it would look like to confront those dark corners.

It ends on a beginning of sorts so I’d like the audience to think about beginnings. There is always time for a new one, I think.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

Mm: I’d never made a feature before, so naturally it was overwhelming from a logistical and mental standpoint. The film had a very, very small budget — around a quarter of a million dollars — and the script called for about thirty locations and thirty speaking roles. With a team of absolute heroes behind me, we got it done.

Second to the logistical stuff, it can be overwhelming as a first-time director. I just kind of told myself I can do it and put one foot in front of the other until it was done. Fear is a powerful motivator but can really inhibit you once you’re in it.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights into how you got the film made.

Mm: Telefilm Canada has a Microbudget Programme supported by the Talent Fund that awards emerging filmmakers from certain accredited institutions — in my case, the Canadian Film Centre — with a grant to make their first feature. Additionally, we were supported by the Harold Greenberg Fund both in development and production. I also had additional investment from Wildling Pictures, the production company that produced the film. Yay, Canada!

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at the Toronto International Film Festival?

Mm: It was my absolute goal and dream to premiere here. About ten years ago, I started out as an intern before leaving to pursue my own work in a roundabout way, and there is no way I thought I’d be on this side of things. And here we are. Coincidentally, in my backyard.

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

Mm: Best advice: I went to a Film Fatales talk with Catherine Hardwicke last year and she said that whenever she does a big group scene, she writes out seating cards beforehand to save time. It’s a little thing that I think people can appreciate and keeps everyone moving. You easily alleviate cast and crew asking you multiple times where people are.

Worst advice: “It’s probably fine.” Whenever anyone says that, including myself, I have to take a second look. The devil is in the details.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

Mm: I’m still learning, so I give the following advice to myself as well. Be a director in a way that makes sense to you. Drop the need to “perform” director. Everyone has shown up and is waiting for you to tell them what to do so find a way to make them want to do their best. For me, that means treating people with respect and apologizing when you’re wrong.

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

Mm: Gah! So many. Most recently, Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann.” It was so singularly bold, original, and no one could have done it but her. I don’t know if I would ever make a film like that, but I have so much respect for Ade and was moved deeply by it. Deepa Mehta’s “Water” and Jane Campion’s “The Piano” are two of the most beautifully directed movies I’ve ever seen. Last Tiff, I watched Houda Benyamina’s “Divines” and I thought it was so tender and impactful.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

Mm: Personally, I have been given a huge amount of opportunity lately — largely from projects helmed by women — so I feel very optimistic. So much has been eloquently said on this matter, but I feel like the best thing I can do is just be the best director I can be so that other people don’t see hiring a woman as a risk. A good example is Ava DuVernay hiring all these women on her series “Queen Sugar” with the philosophy that she cannot be the sole change. It’s her job to help bring other women up with her. I think that is the most powerful and useful way to make real, meaningful change.

‘You’re the Worst’ Boss on Season 4: Incremental Growth and Friends with Benefits

6 September 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not watched “It’s Been,” the Sept. 6 two-part premiere of “You’re The Worst.” 

Fxx comedy “You’re The Worst” has returned with a two-part season premiere that saw its core characters separated. The first half-hour was focused on Jimmy (Chris Geere), who had run away (literally!) from his problems after realizing he wasn’t ready for longtime girlfriend Gretchen (Aya Cash) to become his “family.” The second half-hour focused on where the three month time jump found Gretchen, as well as her best friend Lindsay (Kether Donohue) and Jimmy’s best friend Edgar (Desmin Borges).

“It felt like we wanted to deal with the aftermath of the event, of the betrayal, but it felt like if you wanted to do that properly, you needed time to marinate,” showrunner Stephen Falk tells Variety. “If you did something so horrible, you would need time to run and hide from it »

'You're the Worst' Will Reveal Jimmy and Gretchen's Fate Before Season 4 Ends

6 September 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the hourlong season four premiere of Fxx's You're the Worst.]

Fxx's You're the Worst returned for its fourth season Wednesday and three months have passed since Jimmy (Chris Geere) abandoned Gretchen (Aya Cash) on a Hollywood hill after proposing marriage. And, judging from the hourlong premiere, neither one of them are really ready to face reality.

Both of them coped with their breakup by running away: for Jimmy, that meant leaving town and going to a camper community where he could escape reality. And for Gretchen, it meant camping out at Lindsay's »

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Wednesday’s You’re the Worst season premiere.

If You’re the Worst is actually just a competition to see which character is truly the worst, Jimmy raced out to an early lead in Wednesday’s Season 4 premiere.

The Fxx comedy’s two-part premiere revealed how Jimmy and Gretchen reacted to him proposing to, and then abandoning, her in last season’s finale: Jimmy ran away and hid in a dusty trailer park for three months, watching The Fall Guy DVDs and drinking whiskey with a surly old neighbor (Justified‘s Raymond J.

“You’re the Worst” is proving that there are consequences to abandoning someone immediately after she accepts your marriage proposal. Stephen Falk, creator of the Fxx comedy that airs its Season 4 premiere Wednesday, told TheWrap that Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash) are apart in the premiere episode that picks up three months after he hopped in the car and left her in the dust. “There was a betrayal, so this is the detailing the fallout of that betrayal, and we’ll see them apart for a good while, circling around each other, in each other’s orbits but not together, »

Why You're the Worst's Ghosting Fallout Will Keep Aya Cash & Chris Geere Apart for Much of Season 4

6 September 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Breakups are never easy. That's especially true when one person completely ghosts the other after leaving them on a hill after proposing to them.  While the final moments of You're The Worst's third season were certainly shocking, with poor Gretchen left all alone in the dark as Jimmy drove away, panicked over what he'd just done, stars Aya Cash and Chris Geere tell E! News that it will be nothing compared to the fallout that encompasses much of season four, premiering tonight on Fxx. When we check back in with our severely troubled soulmates in the hour-long season premiere, we'll learn that Jimmy's been carving out a new life for himself at a senior citizen trailer park outside of »

‘You’re The Worst’ Cast Previews Season 4: New Confidences, Curveballs, and Post-Proposal Fallout

6 September 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fxx comedy “You’re The Worst” has broken traditional storytelling format before, namely in the fifth episode of its third season (“Twenty-Two”), where Edgar (Desmin Borges) took center stage and proved the show is truly an ensemble. But the fourth season premiere, “It’s Been,” will toss all rules out the window by dedicating its first half-hour of back-to-back episodes solely to Jimmy’s (Chris Geere) post-proposal journey.

“Stephen asked me to grow a beard, so I knew that A) there was going to be a time jump and B) Jimmy was going to run away,” Geere tells Variety. “And I thought, ‘Of course he’s going to run away!’ He’s not going to turn the car around and try to sort it out, is he? He’s going to take his own self-indulgent amount of time to realize that he needs to take responsibility for his actions.”

‘You’re the Worst’ Review: Season 4 Transcends Romantic-Comedies with an Invigorating New Beginning

4 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The end of “You’re the Worst” Season 3 was a reversal of the ending to so many rom-coms. On top of a mountain, Jimmy (Chris Geere) proposed to Gretchen (Aya Cash) with fireworks in the background and a personal twist to popping the question. (His proposal was themed around local murders — her favorite thing.) She said yes and they kissed.

Except the credits didn’t roll. The mood was sour, not celebratory, despite the two happy faces. Their kiss was in darkness, with just the dim light of Gretchen’s phone illuminating their faces. Under the pretense of getting her a hoodie from the car (to lay on during sex), Jimmy walked away from Gretchen as the fireworks began. Instead of celebrating under the brightly lit sky, he fled the scene, leaving his new fiance without a clue to his whereabouts or why he walked away from the bond he proposed. »

Fxx's 'You're The Worst' Kicks Off Season 4 at The Museum of Ice Cream

30 August 2017 6:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

"We’re acutely aware of the fact that villains are more interesting,” showrunner Stephen Falk told The Hollywood Reporter at the season premiere of Fxx's You're the Worst on Tuesday. “Bad people or bad sides of people are always more interesting to write than good sides.”

When it comes to breaking up in a less honorable fashion, according to Falk, pretentious, narcissistic Jimmy Shive-Overly (Chris Geere) takes the cake by fleeing the scene of a marriage proposal to his equally emotionally volatile girlfriend Gretchen Cutler (Aya Cash) in a season-three finale cliffhanger that has left the show’s fans rabid for resolution.

Fall TV Preview 2017: What to Watch This Season

29 August 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alias Grace

Netflix; Nov. 3 premiere

It’s a golden era for Margaret Atwood adaptations. “Alias Grace,” written and produced by Sarah Polley, is Netflix’s answer to Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” — though not so dystopic. Atwood’s style is distinctive, but this is quite a different story from “Handmaid’s”: For one, it’s a period piece; for another, it’s a closed-ended miniseries. “Alias Grace” is set in 1943 in Canada and based on the real-life story of an Irish housemaid who kills the man she serves. — Sonia Saraiya

Better Things

FX; season two, Sept. 14 premiere

The first season of this series was excellent, but this year, “Better Things” ascends to another level. The second episode alone is a tour de force, full of quotable lines, unexpected but fascinating turns and poignant moments that hit like a ton of bricks. With the second season of this unmissable, funny »

‘American Horror Story: Cult’: Ryan Murphy Reveals Details About This Season, Inspired By Donald Trump and Charles Manson

25 August 2017 6:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ryan Murphy is ready for if – or when – Donald Trump posts a tweet about “American Horror Story: Cult.” Murphy told reporters Friday that he would hope that the president “would have more important things to do.”

But the producer also said he’s realistic: “I would be so shocked if he did, and yet not… My response would be I’m not going to respond to that, because the work speaks for itself. I’m prepared to say nothing.”

Murphy said he expects audiences to have an “emotional response” to “Cult,” especially given that the season kicks off on Election Night 2016. And he knows some right wing critics will dismiss “Cult” because of his politics.

For many Americans, their worst fears came true in November 2016 when Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. “American Horror Story: Cult” will tap into the real-life nightmare in its own signature way.

In the trailer for the series’ seventh season, Ryan Murphy show regular Sarah Paulson looks to be a regular suburban housewife in Michigan who is horrified at the election results. In another household, Evan Peters’ character is rather energized and turned on by the news. And then things get really weird and frightening.
