Fox Searchlight Piracy Fears Spoiling The Fun For Paolo Sorrentino’s More Discerning Italian Fans

22 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The current release in Italy of Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth” is drawing ire with discerning Italo auds after the pic made a splash with global cinephiles in Cannes.

Italian movie buffs are up in arms against the odd fact that Paolo Sorrentino’s Michael Caine-starrer, which is shot in English, is on release across Italy only in a version dubbed into Italian. They are being prevented from seeing the original version due to piracy concerns.

Gag on the hot pic being seen in Italy’s movie theaters the way it was shot is ostensibly due to a diktat imposed by Fox Searchlight when it recently acquired North American rights from French sales company Pathe.

“There are plenty of you — and that makes us glad — who are asking where they can see the film in original language,” noted the film’s production shingle, Indigo Films, in a statement.

Review: Caine, Keitel and Weisz are at their best in Sorrentino's glorious 'Youth'

22 May 2015 2:49 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino has already dipped his toe into the familiar genre of characters of a certain age reminiscing about the good old days with 2013's "The Great Beauty." He even won an Oscar for it. Two years later he returns to the Cannes Film Festival with "Youth," a follow-up that stands besides "Great Beauty" thematically while also presenting a decidedly different point of view. “Youth” starts off with The Retrosettes Sister Band performing a cover of “You Got the Love," interpreted in a retro style and a twist on the old adage “everything old is new again.” In this case, everything new is old again, a theme that may or may not apply to the central characters in Sorrentino’s cinematic opera.   The movie centers on Fred Ballinger (Michael Caine), a legendary British composer and conductor, and Mick Boyle (Harvey Keitel), a famous American film director. Friends for 60 years, »

Jane Fonda Gets Real About Aging at Cannes: "Age Is a Question of Attitude"

20 May 2015 5:32 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jane Fonda and Rachel Weisz are the leading ladies in Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, which debuted for press today at the Cannes Film Festival. They star in the epic film along with Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, who respectively play an aging composer and director questioning the end of both their careers and younger years. It's a lavish and indulgent ensemble piece, much anticipated at Cannes after Sorrentino's last film, The Great Beauty, won the best foreign language award at the 2014 Oscars. Jane's character Brenda, an aging actress who appears overly made up, dressed to the nines, and clad in a big, blond wig, was a hot topic at the press conference following today's screening. Journalists were curious as to whether or not Jane was afraid to play someone who, on the surface, seems to be barely keeping her wits together. "There is something very vulnerable about an »

Green Hair, Twentysomething Culture and Camaraderie Rule at TV Land’s ‘Younger’ Premiere

1 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A deep sense of camaraderie filled the small space of indie theater Landmark Sunshine Cinemas on the Lower East Side on Tuesday night for the New York premiere of “Younger,” TV Land’s new comedy series from “Sex and the City” and “Beverly Hills, 90120″ creator Darren Star.

The show, which revolves around a 40-year-old woman (Sutton Foster) attempting to pass for 26 in order to land and keep a competitive job at a Manhattan publishing house after years as a homemaker, is not so much about agism or sexism or the hazards of social media, as it is just about staying current, Star said. “It’s about how to stay relevant, and how not to be defined by one’s age,” he told Variety. “Part of the show is that, twentysomething culture is omnipresent. It’s not like you have to wonder what’s going on; it’s surrounding you, it drives our culture, »
