"Sumptuous and romantic in an attractively old-fashioned way," wrote The Hollywood Reporter. "Sappy and painfully jejune," wrote The Playlist.  In "5 to 7," an aspiring young writer named Brian, played by Anton Yelchin ("Like Crazy") meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), a French diplomat's wife, outside of the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan.  The two begin a passionate May-December love affair, and Brian begins to yearn for more than just the hours of five to seven to spend with his new beloved. Frank Langella and Glenn Close also star as Brian's parents.

Tribeca Review: How the Anton Yeltchin Drama '5 to 7' Represents the Worst Aspects of the 'Famous Writer' Genre

22 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There is an entire genre of films about a young man yearning to be a famous writer. A blank, unpublished slate at the film's beginning, these mild-turning-bold characters lose their innocence and find a topic — usually heartbreak — discovering themselves by the end credits. Perhaps it's ripe fodder for cinema because people are reading fewer books these days? "5 to 7" represents the worst scenario of the genre. It opens unpromisingly with the hero, Brian Bloom (Anton Yeltchin) announcing in a precious voice-over that the best writing can be found on the benches of Central Park. The worst writing is in the rejection letters he pins to his walls from magazines to which he has submitted his work. (Apparently, no one in this film communicates via email). Such are the quirky writer-ly details that inform his character. With no identifiable job, this 24 year-old would-be writer meets Arielle (the stunningly beautiful Bérénice Marlohe), an attractive 33 year-old French woman. »

Air Force troops do drag show in Okinawa, ending the stigma of HIV inside the gay community, Will Smith a Razzie favorite

Alan Cumming has acquired a script from activist and my friend David Mixner and Rich Burns. Dunes of Overveen is the “true life story of Willem Arondeus and the bloody underground uprising of artists in Amsterdam during WWII against occupying Nazi forces.”

While Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has been gone for a few years, and we’ve seen weddings on bases and tearful homecomings, Lgb troops at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa recently performed in drag to support their new chapter of OutServe-sldn. “We didn’t think there was much of a desire for an event like this on the island but it has actually blown up. We ended up selling 400 tickets in 10 days.”

Jennifer Hudson says that she really got her start performing in gay bars. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #81. Terrence Malick’s Untitled Romantic Drama

24 February 2014 5:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Lawless

Director: Terrence Malick

Writer: Terrence Malick

Producers: Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green, Ken Kao

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Holly Hunter, Bérénice Marlohe, Clifton Collins Jr., Haley Bennett, Boyd Holbrook, Tom Sturridge, Angela Bettis

To consider one’s self a fan of Terrence Malick’s oeuvres is, for lack of a better term, cinephile martyrdom. As one of the two current projects that should be released this year (how many times have we said this), the formerly titled Lawless sounds like a Grand Slam in terms of musical acts assisting a romantic backdrop of a good looking set of actors and actresses (they’ll certainly look lush with Emmanuel Lubezki assisting in the photography) this mostly scriptless project might turn out to be a first-cousin comparison the largely dismissed To the Wonder. »
