Daily Viewing. From "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp"

16 November 2011 12:29 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943) "so unambiguously [satirizes] the military mind-set that Prime Minister Winston Churchill tried to have it banned," writes J Hoberman in the Voice.

Film4 and Focus Features Reteam With BAFTA Award-Winning Writer Abi Morgan for Suffragettes

6 April 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Film4 and Focus Features are set to reteam with BAFTA award-winning writer Abi Morgan (Brick Lane) on ensemble drama Suffragettes.

Suffragettes will center on a group of militant British women who fight for the right to vote, and be in the vein of Nigel Cole’s comedy-drama Made in Dagenham.

Sarah Gavron is attached to direct, with production set to commence once she’s done with documentary The Edge of the World.

Morgan currently has two screenplays in different stages of production: Steve McQueen’s Shame, starring Carey Mulligan and Michael Fassbender; and Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent. Both of which are due to be unveiled later this year.
