[Sundance Review] Lovesong

30 January 2016 6:51 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Tender and haunting, So Yong Kim’s Lovesong is a carefully observed, nuanced character study beautifully written, directed and edited. Much of the action, like in her pervious features In Between Days, Treeless Mountain and For Ellen occurs at the edge of the frame. Exploring the bounds of motherhood, childhood and maturity, Lovesong is an impressive and observant feature in which Kim allows the relationships the breathing room they require for authenticity.

Riley Keough stars as Sarah, a young mother who married too young. The director’s own daughters Jessie Ok Gray and Sky Ok Gray, play daughter Jessie at ages 3 and 6, respectively. Lonely and transplanted to the suburbs from the city by her absent husband Dean (played by filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga in a Skype cameo), she finds herself on the edge of depression. An old college friend Mindy (Jena Malone) re-enters her life and the three go on »

Brooklyn Decker Reveals Who She'd Love to Go on a Road Trip With: ''It Would Be Hilarious!''

25 January 2016 2:20 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well, we know we have at least one thing in common with Brooklyn Decker. The blond beauty sat down with E! News' Zuri Hall to chat about her upcoming film Lovesong at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, inside the Acura Studio, and considering the film is about two besties going on a road trip, it was only fair to ask Decker who, dead or alive, she'd want to go on a long joy ride with. Her choice? Gal-pal Chrissy Teigen (hence, the thing we have in common, because obviously, that would be an awesome person to travel with). "She's one of my really close friends and I know it would be hilarious the entire time," Decker explains. "So out of all people, dead or alive, I »

Lovesong | 2016 Sundance Film Festival Review

25 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Her Best Friend’s Wedding: Kim’s Poetic Exploration of Muted Desire

Indie auteur So Yong Kim continues in English with her fourth narrative feature, Lovesong, a road-trip film which turns into a moving, understated portrait of muted desire. This is Kim’s first film since 2012’s For Ellen, which was the director’s first English language feature and first narrative focused on a male protagonist. But what strikingly unites all of her films are each of their idiosyncratic ways of featuring isolated, lonely humans grappling with disenchantment, usually through some sort of awkward transitional phase, a temporary limbo where goals and dreams lie just outside their grasp. Her latest is no exception in this regard, and features recurring motifs Kim seems fascinated by, namely precocious children involuntarily puttered about in the lives of their malcontented parents. But the focus here is on the carefully moderated relationship of its two leads, »

Filming sex scenes: 13 directors and their approaches

Film directors and their crew discuss the techniques and approaches to capturing fruitiness on the big (and small) screen...

John Badham has written a couple of excellent books where he passed on advice about directing movies, and the lessons he's learned across his own career. In the latest, John Badham On Directing, he raises the spectre of filming sex scenes, and the problems that ensue.

Actors get really spooked when it comes to intimacy in a scene, even kissing", he wrote. "This is where the director has to be extremely patient with the actors and know that the emotional or intimate part of scenes don’t always shoot as easily as the production department thinks they should. The actors are not robots on a Toyota assembly line".

But just how do different filmmakers approach putting intimacy on film? In lots of different ways, is the answer...
