Woody Allen Raves That Café Society's Kristen Stewart Can Go from 'Simple' to 'Sophisticated': 'Not Every Woman Can Do That'

14 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Woody Allen has nothing but kind words for Kristen Stewart. The actress stars in Allen's upcoming 1930s drama Café Society, and the esteemed director said he knew Stewart was the perfect actress to play the role of Vonnie, the secretary of a celebrity agent who claims to reject the Hollywood game "She had the right quality for this part, there were very few people who did," Allen told reporters at the Café Society premiere on Wednesday. "She had a very beautiful look that could be a girl from Nebraska, you know simple and cornfed and naive, and could be transformed »

Icymi: The Furniture

4 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Our new contributor Daniel Walber is taking the 4th of July off but I wanted to take this wee break from his column "The Furniture," to sing its praises. When he first pitched the series I requested only that it be really focused, not solely Oscar-nominated specific (so much brilliant work isn't honored each year, after all), and that we alternate contemporary and classic cinema so there's something for everyone. But the series is all him. It's been a joy to read each week and the exact type of thing I've long wanted to do for my favorite craft category costume design. He beat me to it but I find it inspiring and am looking forward anew to our coverage of the below-the-line Oscar categories this year. 

If you haven't yet read any of these episodes, I think you'll learn something about the cinema and the power of production design to enhance a theme, »

TV Review: ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4

17 June 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Orange Is the New Black” has been less a television show than a movement. The drama — Netflix’s only truly great one — burst on the scene in 2012 as a vehicle of change, both in terms of what we view as prestige television and how we think about mass incarceration in the United States. Author Piper Kerman’s book of the same name, which loosely makes up the source material for show, proved as a window into the prison system for a readership that both lived outside of it and never expected to be a part of it; Piper herself as an author and as a character in the show (played by Taylor Schilling) spends most of her time at Litchfield highlighting the differences between her and the other inmates.

It’s a frustrating reflex, but a useful one, too; in terms of educating its mostly privileged audience, “Orange Is The New Black” is the most influential show »

The Furniture: Decorating Madness in A Streetcar Named Desire

6 June 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber...

The 70th Tony Awards are in just a few days. I certainly can't be trusted with predictions, but I’ll make one guess. The award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play probably won’t be split three ways. That sort of near-impossible result has only occurred once, all the way back in 1948. The 2nd Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play was shared by Judith Anderson, Katharine Cornell, and Jessica Tandy. Tandy won for the original broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Of course, she didn’t get to be in the movie and so we will leave her behind. Elia Kazan’s film of Tennessee Williams’s masterpiece premiered less than two years after its Broadway run ended. Its success was that instant. It won four Oscars, though all but one was for acting. »

4 June 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Directed by first-time feature filmmaker M. Shawn Crahan (who is also known to millions of fans as Clown from the hugely popular band Slipknot), Officer Downe recently premiered at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival. Written by Joe Casey (who also penned the graphic novel), Officer Downe stars Kim Coates in the titular role as an immortal cop fighting to make Los Angeles a safer place in the not-too-distant future.

Gillian Anderson weighs in on her chances of ever playing James Bond

23 May 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As she made clear via Twitter over the weekend, Gillian Anderson -- currently starring as Blanche in a Brooklyn stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire -- is flattered that you think she would make a good James Bond. That said, she knows the chances of her ever being cast are slim to none. First, here's the tweet from Anderson that got all the attention: It's Bond. Jane Bond. Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don't know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond pic.twitter.com/f8GC4ZuFgL — Gillian Anderson (@GillianA) May 21, 2016 That tweet was followed up on Monday by Anderson's response -- during a Tumblr Q&A to promote Streetcar -- to a questioner who brought up the fan-driven campaign to have her fill Daniel Craig's shoes: http://chewiesgirlfriend.tumblr.com/post/144818168845/how-do-you-feel-about-the-jane-bond-news-and-how Anderson would indeed be a great Bond, but like Gillian herself, »

A Streetcar Named Desire and a “Stella!” Shouting Contest at the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis

10 May 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.”

Ahead of its time in how it showed raw and naked sexual and emotional passions on the screen, A Streetcar Named Desire made 27 year-old Marlon Brando, who also played the role of Stanley Kowalski on Broadway, an overnight sensation and one of the all-time greats of the silver screen. Blanche Dubois (Viven Leigh) is a Southern belle, one who had every man in the palm of her man. Blanche moves in with her sister Stella (Kim Hunter) and her husband, Stanley (Brando) in a small, grotty New Orleans apartment. Blanche’s family owned an estate but lost it and now Blanche has gone to live with her sister, much to the animal-like Stanley’s dismay. Stanley hates her, hates her with a passion. Once she arrives, hell breaks loose between Stanley and Stella, who is pregnant. Stanley gets his contacts and »

International Star You Should Know: British Actress Vanessa Kirby

6 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At 28, Vanessa Kirby is having a busy year: She’s starring in Netflix’s first U.K.-produced series, “The Crown,” as well as three films — romance “Me Before You,” actioner “Kill Command” and period drama “Genius.” On stage, she follows a February turn in “Uncle Vanya” in London with “A Streetcar Named Desire,” now in previews ahead of its New York opening at St Ann’s Warehouse.

Early Inspiration: Kirby attended local plays as a teen, but it wasn’t until she saw a National Theatre production of “The Cherry Orchard” with Vanessa Redgrave that she fully comprehended her passion for acting. “I got so drawn into it that I left thinking, ‘I wanna do what they’re doing somehow — tell stories in some kind of way that might move people,’ ” she says.

‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ Theater Review: Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster Take a Trip to Dollywood

1 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Let’s begin with what made the Young Vic’s production of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” directed by Benedict Andrews, noteworthy: its revolving stage, designed by Magda Willi, with the audience seated in the round. That “Streetcar” crossed the Atlantic to open Sunday at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, and the concept is a near disaster. Critics are usually given the best seats, but from where I was sitting at eye level with the actors, I couldn’t see much of Blanche’s entrance due to the sink and dish washer blocking my view. I completely missed seeing Stanley’s big “Stella! »
