Starting out on the Museum of Modern Art red carpet, I connected Sarah Gadon's Olivia to Arnaud Desplechin's Jimmy P: Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian. Logan Lerman, at the Yale Club, let me probe into how he prepared to take on the role of Marcus Messner in James Schamus's adaptation of Philip Roth's Indignation, set during the Korean War at a small Ohio college.

Messner arrives at the school from New Jersey; from the start, his roommates, both part of a Jewish minority, annoy him and keep him from studying by playing loud music or memorising Malvolio's yellow stocking speech from Twelfth Night.

Court hears case of Star Wars set injury to Harrison Ford by Jennie Kermode - 2016-07-26 12:57:18

Harrison Ford as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Foodles Production (UK) Ltd, a Disney-owned company, today plead guilty to two charges of health and safety violations which, Milton Keynes magistrates court heard, could have killed Harrison Ford.

The case relates to an incident in June 2014 when Ford was on the Millennium Falcon set filming Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens. As he walked through a door which was not supposed to be moving, it was remotely operated and hit him, pinning him to the ground and breaking his left leg. He had to be airlifted to hospital but, the court heard, the situation could have been much worse.

"It could have killed somebody," said prosecutor Andrew Marshall. "The fact that it didn’t was because an emergency stop was activated." The Health and Safety Executive said the impact on Ford was like being hit by a small car. »
