Agnes Jaoui, the French filmmaker and actress who is on the Cannes competition jury, is set to reteam with Jean-Pierre Bacri (“Under the Rainbow”) for her next directorial effort, “Place Publique” (working title).
“Place Publique” stars Bacri as Castro, a once-famous TV host who gets together with old friends, including his ex-wife, at a house-warming party on the outskirts of Paris. Over the course of that party, it becomes obvious that success has changed Castro, who used to share the idealistic political views of his former wife, and now has a more realistic, if not cynical, perspective on life. Jaoui also stars in the film.

2016 claimed a long list of entertainers, but the grim reaper’s most unexpected one-two punch came between the final two holidays with the death of movie icons Carrie Fisher on December 12 and her mother Debbie Reynolds a mere 36 hours later. With the premiere of the documentary about the pair, “Bright Lights” on HBO this weekend, we at the Geeks site thought we should take a look at their considerable contributions to film.
Let’s start with Carrie, who was born in Hollywood, USA on October 21, 1956, the daughter of Debbie and singer/actor Eddie Fisher. She appeared on stage with her mother throughout the late 60’s and early 70’s, even getting her first small screen credit in the 1969 TV movie “Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children”. It wasn’t until 1975, when she would make her big screen debut opposite Warren Beatty (quite an arrival) in Hal Ashby’s hit Shampoo. »
