Film Review: Meg Ryan’s ‘Ithaca’

8 September 2016 8:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

By turns poignant and plodding, affecting and affected, “Ithaca” is the sort of frustrating movie that’s just good enough to make you wish it were a lot better. First-time feature director Meg Ryan — yes, that Meg Ryan — and screenwriter Eric Jendresen have reconstituted William Saroyan’s 1943 novel “The Human Comedy” as a wildly uneven period piece that, despite several dramatically potent episodes, never really develops a sense of narrative momentum.

Indeed, there is a point scarcely 20 minutes into the film where it easily could have ended, and come off as a reasonably satisfying short. Equally problematic: Actors are burdened with too many lines that sound more like declarations than dialogue — and not just during the intrusive stretches of voiceover narration — while tragedies are foreshadowed so heavy-handedly that two obviously doomed characters might as well have vultures perched on their shoulders right from the get-go.

And yet, despite its predictability and other conspicuous flaws, »

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan Reunite in New Ithaca Photo

23 August 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Once upon a time, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan were known as America's sweethearts. The duo first paired up on the big screen for 1990's Joe Versus the Volcano. They would also go onto appear together in 1993's Sleepless in Seattle followed by 1998's You've Got Mail. They haven't been seen together since that time. But that all changes with the upcoming WWII drama Ithaca, which brings a stirring reunion between the two lost and wandering soles.

Ithaca marks Meg Ryan's directorial debut after the actress took some time away from appearing in blockbuster romantic comedies. The movie is a coming-of-age tale for one teenage boy, and doesn't revolve around another loving relationship between the two former co-stars. In fact, the pair weren't seen together in the trailer that dropped last month. And they only share a fleeting few moments together on screen. Entertainment Weekly has a first look at this reunion. »

Daisy Ridley Eyes ‘Chaos Walking,’ ‘James White’ Director Jumps to ‘James Ellis,’ and More

5 August 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A popular trend for young, rising actors is to take on the Ya novel franchise, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley is following suit. According to Variety, the young star has joined Lionsgate for an adaptation of Chaos Walking, which is set in a world where all living things can hear each other’s thoughts. The novel are a — wait for it — trilogy, so clearly the studio wants this thing to take off, but the big question will be if Ridley can balance it with the demands of the Star Wars saga commitment. Despite this traditional choice, however, Ridley continues to mix her growing filmography palette with interesting choices, as she can be heard narrating a documentary on a young Mongolian eagle huntress soon, as well as starring in a reimagining of Hamlet from Ophelia’s perspective.

Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky Cast Now Includes Brian Gleeson

4 August 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seemed almost inevitable that Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh would return to feature films eventually, after his much publicized retirement announcement, and it was also inevitable that such a return would involve a heist of some kind. That’s exactly what Logan Lucky will deliver, along with an all-star cast that now includes Brian Gleeson.

The actor will soon be seen in Assassin’s Creed, but in Logan Lucky he will play Sam Bang – brother of the characters that are to be played by Daniel Craig and Jack Quaid. Presumably, these are the brothers at the centre of the film’s premise, which sees them try to successfully complete a heist during a Nascar race in North Carolina. In addition to Brian Gleeson (son of Brendan, brother of Domhnall), Daniel Craig and Jack Quaid, the cast includes Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Katherine Heigl, Riley Keough, Katherine Waterston, Seth MacFarlane, »

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks Finally Reunite Onscreen in Ithaca Trailer

28 July 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

No matter how brief this reunion is in the trailer, a (fantastic) reunion it still is. Meg Ryan makes her directorial debut with the World War II film, Ithaca, and in it she and Tom Hanks will be playing the parents of 14-year old Homer (Alex Neustaedter) who becomes a telegraph messenger during the war while his brother (Jack Quaid) fights abroad. Meg and Tom's onscreen reunion is brief—a mere heartwarming glance at each other—but it's enough to give us all the same feels they gave us in You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. If the plot alone won't make you tear up, the thought of these two acting in love again absolutely will. Of course, the trailer features plenty of »

Meg Ryan’s directorial debut Ithaca gets a trailer and poster

27 July 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After working in Hollywood for over three decades, primarily as an actress, Meg Ryan has finally decided to take a step behind the camera to make her directorial debut with Ithaca, an adaptation of William Saroyan’s 1943 book The Human Comedy. The first trailer and new poster for the film have been released and can both be seen below…

Ryan rose to fame in the mid-to-late 80s with roles in such now-classics as Top Gun and When Harry Met Sally and continued her success in the 90s with Sleepless in SeattleCourage Under Fire and You’ve Got Mail. Her most famous performances are generally considered to be those alongside Tom Hanks, who, as a matter of fact, has a role in the film. Those expecting to see a lot of Hanks when they go to the theaters should temper their expectations, however, as he is only briefly in the »

Alex Neustaedter stars as a bicycle telegraph messenger in the adaptation of William Saroyan’s 1943 novel “The Human Comedy,” which appears to bear no direct relation to the liberal-arts college located in the New York town of the same name. The boy’s older brother has joined the war effort, leaving him to tend to his widowed mother (Ryan).

Meg Ryan Reunites With Tom Hanks in Trailer For Her Directorial Debut ‘Ithaca’

27 July 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The selling point for some when it comes to Meg Ryan‘s directorial debut Ithaca will be a reunion with her Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Joe Versus the Volcano co-star Tom Hanks. However, the first trailer has arrived today, and they certainly aren’t the central focus. Instead, the drama — also starring Sam Shepard, Hamish Linklater, and Jack Quaid — follows the story of a younger brother whose sibling heads to WWII and he’s the bike messenger in his town.

“There was a day I thought, ‘Oh, man. I can’t protect my kid from everything.’ It’s a difficult moment,” Ryan tells EW about the genesis of the project. “I think it speaks to the complicated things happening [in the world], in the sense of community and cultivation of an individual’s integrity – what Saroyan believes are important antidotes. Hopefully Ithaca is about how fierce and frail life really is. »

Watch: Official Trailer for Meg Ryan's Directorial Debut Titled 'Ithaca'

27 July 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There will always be pain in this world, Homer, and a good man will seek to take the pain out of things." Momentum Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for the film Ithaca, the feature directorial debut of actress Meg Ryan, who also stars in this. Based on William Saroyan's novel titled The Human Comedy, the story is about a bike messenger, played by Alex Neustaedter, who delivers letters during World War II in the 1940s. One letter in particular, however, will change him forever. The full cast includes Sam Shepard, Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Hamish Linklater, Jack Quaid, Molly Gordon and Gabriel Basso. This looks like a fairly nice, harmless indie drama to see this fall. There definitely is an indie feel to it, not in a good way, but I'm hopeful that the emotions in the story shine through in the end. Give this a watch below. »

Vinyl: Cancelled by HBO; No Season Two After All

22 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

[caption id="attachment_51275" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Vinyl TV show; canceled, no season two. (Image via HBO.)[/caption]

The music has stopped. The Vinyl TV show on HBO has been cancelled. This reverses the decision HBO made to renew Vinyl for a second season, on February 18, 2016. Set in the 1970s New York City music scene, the drama stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.

The Vinyl TV series cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, and Paul Ben-Victor. Created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen, and Terence Winter, HBO describes Vinyl as featuring, "the sex- and drug-addled music business of the early 1970s at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop." »

Bad news: ‘Vinyl’ has been cancelled – no season 2 for HBO show

22 June 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This is just devastating. HBO have completely u-turned on their season 2 plans for the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger produced rock and roll TV series Vinyl and have cancelled it after its debut season.

The news comes via Deadline.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” HBO said in a statement. “Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

Scott Z. Burns was set to replace co-creator, executive producer and showrunner Terence Winter on the second season, but the trade blog adds that the transition between the two has nothing to do with the cancellation.

The show proved a tough sell to audiences as viewing figures were less than projected and hugely disappointing for the Us cable network.

This is just awful news. The party is over. »

Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Thriller Logan Lucky Casts Jack Quaid

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding some wiggle room in his commitment to HBO’s acclaimed music drama VinylJack Quaid has closed a deal to join Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded Nascar drama Logan Lucky.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the up-and-comer now joins an ensemble that features Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Hillary Swank, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Alien: Covenant’s Katherine Waterston. That’s a casting call that once made room for Michael Shannon, before a scheduling clash forced the Midnight Special star to bow out of the project in favor of Guillermo del Toro’s as-yet-untitled Cold War romance.

Rooted in North Carolina, Logan Lucky is pitched as a family drama revolving around two daring brothers who stage a heist during the midst of a Nascar race. It’s a feature that has been simmering on the back-burner for some time, particularly when you factor in the ‘will he, won’t he?’ debacle that ensued before Soderbergh eventually decided to return behind the lens for the first time since Side Effects three years ago. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are on board to produce.

With an enviable ensemble in tow, Logan Lucky is expected to enter production in the coming months ahead of a theatrical release at some point next year. Currently, Soderberg is still in search of a distributor. »

Review: Vinyl: The Complete First Season

7 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

My uncle works in the music business and his heyday was back in the 1970s, so when he recognized the music industry portrayed in HBO’s Vinyl, I took that as an endorsement. Back then, I was buying a new album almost every week (or so it seemed) and was expanding my tastes thanks to the discovery of FM radio. At the time, I never really thought about the business side of music but that came later.

Viewers today can watch people struggle for a career thanks to American Idol and more recently Fox’s Empire. Vinyl, though, takes a look back when sex, drugs, and rock & roll was a lifestyle, not a catchphrase. This was an era that saw popular music splinter every few years so rock begat heavy metal, California rock, and god help us, disco. All of which got rejected simultaneously with the rise of punk and »
