Penn Is Latest Hollywood Celeb to Take Home French Academy's Honor

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

Benson Lee, Seoul Searching

21 January 2015 8:32 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Toronto-born child of Korean parents who left their homeland in the 1960s returns to Sundance after 1998 selection Miss Monday with a unique spin on the teen movie genre based on his own experiences.

Seoul Searching takes place in the South Korean capital in 1986 as a cosmopolitan gaggle of high school students born to expatriate Korean parents arrive for summer camp to reconnect with their roots.

Lee and Andrea Chung produced and Seoul Searching stars Justin Chon, Jessika Van, In-Pyo Cha, Teo Yoo, Esteban Ahn and Byul Kang.

Lee talks to Jeremy Kay about his homage to John Hughes and his own journey to self-discovery.

Wme Global and Preferred Content represent world rights. The film screens for press and industry on January 23 followed by the public world premiere in Premieres on January 30.

What was the inspiration for the story?

It’s based on a personal experience of mine that took place in 1986. My parents were from Seoul »

Daily | Passages | Saito, Perez, Goldwyn, Negron

We remember four remarkable men we've lost this past week. Cinematographer Takao Saito worked for nearly half a century with Akira Kurosawa and won a Japanese Academy Award. Film historian and critic Gilberto Perez wrote a landmark book in 1998, The Material Ghost: Films and their Medium. Samuel Goldwyn Jr. "helped create a business model—low production costs, guerrilla marketing—that allowed art-house movies to grow into a powerful cultural and economic force" (New York Times). And "fame-ish" Taylor Negron will be remembered for more than his roles in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Better Off Dead and Punchline—he was also an engaging and funny writer. » - David Hudson »

Michael Keaton: I wanted to do 'Beetlejuice 2' a long time ago

12 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills - Michael Keaton may have won a Golden Globe for "Birdman," but for at least a moment backstage, talk centered on a much less of-the-moment project: Tim Burton's 1988 comedy "Beetlejuice," in which the actor starred as the ghoulish title character. "It is not up to me," said the Best Lead Actor in a Musical or Comedy winner after being asked if he was on board for the long-rumored sequel. "I said for years, I don’t know why we didn’t do another one two years later. ...[Now] it is a question of me and Tim being around and available." Speaking of old films, Keaton remembers the moment he watched Amy Heckerling's 1982 comedy "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and became aware of a then-fresh young actor named Sean Penn. His comments came following a question about acting in a comedy (which "Birdman" was somewhat bafflingly categorized as) vs. »
