The Barn Cinema is located within the idyllic grounds of the Dartington Hall Estate, near Totnes. The 14th century estate is picturesque all year round but nevermore so than now, what with the autumn leaves falling. For those who enjoy a pre or post-film tipple, the estate's gastropub, The White Hart, is ideally situated just two minutes from the Barn.
Dartington is on the local bus route. or it's a 25 minute walk from Totnes train station. However, having your own transportation makes »

The 7th Abu Dhabi Film Festival handed out its Black Pearl awards at a closing ceremony tonight (Oct 31), including cash prizes amounting to around $700,000.
The Black Pearl for Narrative Feature, worth $100,000, went to A Touch of Sin (Tian zhu ding) directed by Jia Zhangke.
The film, which played in competition at Cannes where it won the best screenplay award, revolves around four threads set in vastly different geographical and social milieus across modern-day China and features random acts of violence.
The Narrative jury, presided over by two-time Oscar nominated actress Jacki Weaver, gave the special jury award ($50,000) to Hiner Saleem’s My Sweet Pepper Land, centred on a law man in a small town on the border of Iran, Iraq and Turkey.
In addition, Dame Judi Dench won best »

From 2014-2018, the BBC will feature specially dedicated coverage on TV, Radio and online, and across international, national and local services.
Leading the coverage is Jeremy Paxman's Britain's Great War, a four-part documentary season which will start in early 2014. The series will explore how Britain and the lives of British people were altered by the conflict.
Other programming highlights include BBC Two's The Necessary War, presented by Sir Max Hastings, and Niall Ferguson's The Pity Of War, which will both look at the war from very different perspectives.
Rupert Murdoch will be interviewed in Gallipoli, a documentary about the British Empire's most humiliating episode of the First World War. Murdoch will speak about his father, who was a whistle-blower on the botched campaign. »
After a lengthy hiatus from the studio, Norwegian blackened hard rock unit Satyricon, comprised of core members Satyr (Sigurd Wongraven on vocals, guitar & bass) & Frost (Kjetil-Vidar Haraldstad on drums) and a revolving team of supporting players, have returned with their self-titled eighth studio album. While they began as a strictly black metal band during that genre's Scandinavian glory days, Satyricon later transitioned to a more straightforward style of melodic hard rock, though they continue to embrace black metal's themes and retain a few of its musical motifs. For fans of horror and occult-oriented rock and metal who find traditional Norwegian black metal a bit too... well, let's say challenging to the ears (old school bands embrace those lo-fi elements as part of the genre's kill-the-rules mindset), Satyricon is both accessible and fist-pumping intense – a balance which makes for a pretty effective hook. That signature sound continues for the most part »

The “Nolanverse”. It’s got to be up there with Fox’s X-Men Universe (which should arguably be called the “Donnerverse” thanks to the machinations of the dreadful Lauren Shuler Donner) as one of the most controversial takes on a comic book character’s world ever. After all, it committed the sin of taking Batman and placing him in a realistic and grounded world. Gone were the outlandish gadgets and colourful rogues gallery, and in were – the still fairly ludicrous – creations of Lucius Fox and foes who (worryingly) could very easily exist in Our world. Those are of course just a couple of examples, but the point is that Christopher Nolan’s take on the Caped Crusader will forever divide fans. Some were able to forgive the differences to the comic books for what was ultimately one hell of a trilogy, while others simply could not get over the fact »
Activist actress Angelina Jolie is still working tirelessly for positive change. Jolie (who underwent a double mastectomy recently) earlier urged young people to get involved in her Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict initiative (Psvi). The beautiful actress-and-activist gave a moving speech to students at the United Nations University in Shibuya, Tokyo, imploring Japanese fans to take action to help eradicate warzone rape worldwide. Speaking at a special screening of her 2011 movie 'In the Land of Blood and Honey', Angelina said: "Our world is scarred by immense problems from poverty to injustice and war. But your potential as young people is boundless. Problems that have defeated previous generations, you have the chance to overcome. "This is a vast task and it needs every effort and every level, from government and the Un, to communities and families, down to you - but it is possible. "The suffering the film depicts »

Eileen Brennan has died at the age of 80.
The American actress Brennan died at home in Burbank, California, after a battle with bladder cancer, said her managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato.
Whether she was issuing orders as an Army captain in 'Private Benjamin', rambling as a real-life rendition of Mrs Peacock from 'Clue' or blasting an immortal monster with a shotgun as a crazy cat lady in 'Jeepers Creepers', she injected perfectly timed comedy into each of her roles.

Let our powers combine: According to THR, Sony is set to bring beloved '90s kids' series "Captain Planet" to the big screen. Don't remember "Captain Planet and the Planeteers"? Here's the opening narration:
Our world is in peril. Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, can no longer stand the terrible destruction plaguing our planet. She gives five magic rings to five special young people. From Africa, Kwame with the power of earth. From the North America, Wheeler with the power of fire. From the Soviet Union, Linka with the power of wind. From Asia, Gi with the power of water and from South America, Ma-Ti with the power of heart. With the five powers combined they summon earth's greatest champion -- Captain Planet!

Our world is so connected now that moments of solitude, peace and quiet can often be hard to come by without interruptions and distractions. From the real people in our lives to the virtual ones we interact with on Facebook and Twitter, there’s almost always someone else intruding on our private, little bubble. You’d think we could simply turn off the phone, iPad and laptop and go sit outside with a good book, but for many people that appears to be physically impossible. But what if you had no choice? An unnamed woman (Martina Gedeck) who we’ll call Frau (if only because IMDb lists her that way) arrives at a remote Austrian hunting cabin with two friends and their dog. They’ve only barely settled in when the couple decide to walk into town with the promise of returning by nightfall, but still absent the following morning Frau goes looking for them. She »

Chicago – If you don’t like the roles you’re being offered, why not write them yourself? That has been the philosophy of actress Brit Marling, who taught herself the art of screenwriting in order to create the sort of complex female roles Hollywood avoids like the plague. She’s played a tragically damaged woman in Mike Cahill’s sci-fi drama, “Another Earth,” and a beguiling cult leader in Zal Batmanglij’s psychological thriller, “Sound of My Voice.”
In her new film, a topical mind-bender entitled, “The East,” Marling re-teams with director Batmanglij for her most audacious effort to date. She plays Sarah, an operative assigned by an intelligence firm to infiltrate an anarchist group (dubbed “The East”) notorious for its anti-corporate activism. But as she befriends the tight-knit group headed by the dashing Benji (Alexander Skarsgård), Sarah finds her views starting to radically shift. Hollywood Chicago spoke with Marling »

According to Allure magazine, Amanda Seyfried -- the "Les Misérables" actress who played the ditzy blonde character Karen Smith in the "Mean Girls" movie -- has been eagerly awaiting an announcement that the stage adaptation of everyone's favorite 2004 teen comedy is actually happening.
She reveals to Allure she's not too keen to pick up where Plastic member Karen left off. Instead she wants to grab Rachel McAdams' former role as the vicious and vain Regina George. "I desperately want to be Regina," Seyfried says.
The actress went on to reveal some juicy tidbits about her past cast mate, Lindsay Lohan. But all we're concerned about is the fact that "Espn"-endowed Karen wants to switch places with teen queen Regina. Our world is turning upside down!
Please let us know your equally shocked reactions in the comments.
