Kanye West Returns to the Stage in a Surprise Performance With Kid Cudi

What could this mean? Kanye West surprised everyone when he took the stage at the Adidas NBA All-Star Weekend event in Los Angeles on Feb. 18. The star introduced Kid Cudi, and the two performed "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" from Kanye's Life of Pablo album. This performance comes just four months after the two took the stage together during Kid Cudi's tour stop in Chicago. Recently, Kanye has been spotted out in public with a huge smile on his face and laptop in hand, which is raising speculations that he's actively working on a new album. He reactivated his Instagram page on Valentine's Day to post photos of iconic couples through the years and is slowly coming back to the spotlight. We are waiting on the edge of our seats to see what he's up to, but in the meantime, we will be enjoying the spectacular performance of him and Kid Cudi,

Emile Hirsch & Zoe Kravitz in Trailer for Crime Film 'Vincent N Roxxy'

"I always felt trapped in this town..." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the trailer for an indie crime thriller romance titled Vincent N Roxxy, telling the love story between two lost souls. Zoe Kravitz stars as Roxxy, an "inner city girl in trouble", who's attacked on the street in broad daylight. Emile Hirsch plays Vincent, who tries to save her, but ends up falling in love with her and the two go on the run from their pasts and the dangerous people after them. The cast includes Zoey Deutch, Emory Cohen, Scott Mescudi, Beau Knapp, and Jason Mitchell. While this obviously seems like an updated, modern version of Bonnie and Clyde, or even Sid and Nancy, they're trying to make it unique with developed characters. This doesn't look that good, and I prefer American Honey anyway, but this might be worth checking out. Watch below. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for

Directed and written by Josh Mond

Starring Christopher Abbott, Cynthia Nixon, Scott Mescudi, Ron Livingston, Makenzie Leigh, David Call

Synopsis:

A hedonistic twenty-something must come to terms with personal responsibility in the face of his mother’s battle with serious illness.

Painting a painful and believable account of modern city life, this impressive release from Josh Mond (Martha Marcy May Marlene) sensitively brings about a fire-brand of emotional intensity from page to screen.

The eponymous White (Christopher Abbott) is a directionless young man living from day-to-day in New York city. His sense of reality is troubled by the news of his estranged father’s death. Supported by his ever-loyal best friend Nick (Scott Mescudi), James also has to deal with his mother’s ongoing battle with serious illness. Cynthia Nixon (best known for Sex in the City) is compelling as James’s mother Gail, offering an honest and

Movie Review – James White (2015)

James White, 2015.

Directed by Josh Mond.

Starring Christopher Abbott, Cynthia Nixon, Scott Mescudi, Makenzie Leigh, and Ron Livingston.

Synopsis:

James, a twenty-something New Yorker, struggles to take control of his self-destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges.

There is a moment during a brief but terrifying hospital visit where the titular son, James White, increasingly gets more argumentative and confrontational with the various workers in the hospital that are attempting to care for his stage-four cancer-ridden, recently widowed mother, and outside of the scene depicting some of the most powerful and genuine emotion we have seen on the silver screen this decade, it is also one of the most personally affecting scenes I have ever witnessed in a movie.

Without going off om too much of a tangent, I suffer from a disease called Muscular Dystrophy Type-2, with one of the numerous, frustrating side-effects being a weakened immune

Hollywood Contenders – Cynthia Nixon is a possible Best Supporting Actress threat for “James White”

I’ll be writing more in depth about this soon, but not all categories are created equal at the Oscars. Especially when it comes to the Best Supporting Actress race, you can almost always look at it as a thin potential lineup, but to me, that does the category a disservice. Sure, quantity may be less, but there’s usually plenty of quality seeking a nomination. Sometimes, you just have to look a little bit harder. This year, one of the films that could very well try to slip in with a nod there is this week’s James White, a coming of age story that’s anchored by a moving supporting performance by veteran actress Cynthia Nixon. She’s a dark horse in Supporting Actress, and could very well challenge for a nom. The film is a look at the title character of James White (Christopher Abbott), an irresponsible

‘James White’ Director Josh Mond on Getting Personal, Finding the Ending, Joachim Trier, and More

In the five months found within James White, our title character is at the most difficult chapter of his life thus far. Grieving the loss of his father and attempting to assist his ailing mother, the drama authentically depicts the brutality of the process. After producing the gripping Sundance dramas Martha Marcy May Marlene and Simon Killer, Josh Mond diverts in some ways with his directorial debut. Providing yet another intimate character study of a fractured individual, James White also has a perhaps unexpected enveloping warmth.

I had the chance to speak with Mond upon the release of his debut, which arrives in limited theaters on November 13th. We discussed the personal connection everyone had on set, the intense camerawork, crafting one of the year’s most emotional scenes, finding the ending, being inspired by James Gray, Joachim Trier, Denis Villeneuve, and Wong Kar-wai, and more.

Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson, with a terrific supporting cast that includes Elisabeth Moss, Juno Temple, Giovanni Ribisi, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Ty Simpkins and Eden Duncan-Smith in Meadowland, Reed Morano's subtle and intense directorial debut. John Leguizamo, Ned Eisenberg and a memorable non-speaking guest star in a cameo can be seen both here and in Michael Almereyda's thrilling Experimenter, evoking the "Familiar Stranger".

As a cinematographer, Morano had worked with Misty Upham on Courtney Hunt's complex Frozen River and her composer Adam Taylor did the score for John Wells' furious family drama, August: Osage County, in which Upham has one of the most chivalrous and applause-deserving scenes.

Olivia Wilde on Fighting to Fund Her Crime Drama ‘Meadowland’

Olivia Wilde on Fighting to Fund Her Crime Drama ‘Meadowland’
Reed Morano has been one of the most in-demand cinematographers working in independent film over the past few years, having lent her observant, nuanced talents to Sundance favorites including “Kill Your Darlings,” “The Skeleton Twins” and “Frozen River.” This year, she graduated from cinematographer to director with the moody drama “Meadowland,” which screened last night at New York’s Landmark Sunshine Cinema with an event sponsored by the diamond company Forevermark. Though she’d already had plenty of behind-the-camera experience, Morano still learned a few new things from the experience.

“The thing that was new to me was being able to make a lot more decisions that I had always wished I’d had control over. It was a lot more work because I was Dp-ing and directing, but it was so gratifying and so fulfilling,” she told Variety last night. She chose “Meadowland” — which stars Luke Wilson and Olivia Wilde

James White review [Lff 2015]: “Powerful cinema”

James White review: “A totally immersive, powerful piece of drama.” James White review

James White is a powerful new drama entering on the troubled title character, played by Christopher Abbott, an exciting young actor known recently for his work on the TV series Girls, and in the superb 2011 indie movie, Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene. After an impactful debut at Sundance earlier in the year, the film arrives in the UK at the BFI London Film Festival, with it firmly wedged in the Love category. Told from an almost first-person perspective, the story begins in his native New York City, where it immediately becomes apparent that White’s father has recently passed, and the young man isn’t coping particularly well with it, or life in general. As well as grieving his father’s death, White also has his mother’s battle with cancer to contend with. With the treatment affecting her memory,

Olivia Wilde And Luke Wilson Star In New Trailer For Reed Morano’s Meadowland

Cinedigm has released the new trailer for director Reed Morano’s Meadowland.

The drama screened in April at the Tribeca Film Festival. In her review, Sheila O’Malley (rogerebert.com) said Morano’s movie, “shows a strong visual style, at times overwrought and hallucinatory, at other times quiet and focused. The acting is terrific and grounded, without the expected theatrics or huge breakdowns. Grief is an enclosed and very silent world. That’s the thing that nobody tells you about it, and that’s the devastating process shown in “Meadowland.”

One of the must-see movies of 2015, the cast includes Olivia Wilde, Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Elisabeth Moss, Ty Simpkins, John Leguizamo, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein and Juno Temple.

Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson Spiral Down in First Trailer For ‘Meadowland’

After serving as cinematographer on Kill Your Darlings, The Skeleton Twins, Frozen River, and more, Reed Morano debuted her first directorial effort at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Meadowland brings together the talents of Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson as grieving parents in the aftermath of losing their child.

We said in our review, “With authentic performances from the ensemble, this process of healing (as destructive as it may be) effectively comes across, but as we dive deeper into the abyss of loss, the story strays from its grounded realism and becomes too contrived to fully convey its intended emotion.” Also starring Giovanni Ribisi, Elisabeth Moss, Ty Simpkins, John Leguizamo, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein and Juno Temple, check out the trailer below.
