‘Steve Jobs’: Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s Interesting Relationship with Oscar

14 October 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to screenwriters most moviegoers would have a hard time naming more than a handful. Yet, Aaron Sorkin, whose latest film, Steve Jobs, is earning stellar reviews and garnering major Oscar buzz, is as much a celebrity as those in front of the camera.

Sorkin, whose career has spanned over 20 years and included work for stage, television, and the big screen, has become synonymous with sharp dialogue and streamlined storytelling and fans of the wordsmith’s recent works have seen him recognized by the Academy (2010’s The Social Network earned a best adapted screenplay Oscar, 2011’s Moneyball earned a best adapted screenplay nom), however, those recent accolades came after years of receiving the cold shoulder.

In 1993, director Rob Reiner‘s adaptation of Sorkin’s play, A Few Good Men, was nominated for four Oscars. Sorkin wrote the screenplay for the film, adapting his own work for the screen, »

Interview: Wamg Talks To Effie Gray Producer Donald Rosenfeld

2 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Coming to theater on April 3rd is the film Effie Gray.

The film explores the fascinating, true story of the relationship between Victorian England’s greatest mind, John Ruskin, and his teenage bride, Euphemia “Effie” Gray, who leaves him for the Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais.

Effie Gray is the first original screenplay written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson. In this impeccably crafted period drama, Thompson delicately and incisively probes the marital politics of the Victorian Era, and beyond.

Dakota Fanning stars as Effie Gray Ruskin. The cast includes Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Tom Sturridge, David Suchet, Greg Wise, Claudia Cardinale, James Fox, Sir Derek Jacobi and Robbie Coltrane.

The film is produced by Andreas Roald (Terrence Malick’s Voyage Of Time) and Donald Rosenfeld (Malick’s Tree Of Life and Voyage Of Time).

Oscar Sunday Will Be Veterans’ Day for Sony Classics Team

13 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Classics heads into the Feb. 22 Oscars with 18 nominations. Aside from being a company record, those noms represent two words associated with Spc: loyalty and longevity.

Toppers Michael Barker and Tom Bernard are proud that so many of their nominees are veterans of past Spc films. “With Julianne Moore, we go back to ‘Vanya on 42nd Street,’” says Barker. “We’ve worked with Wim Wenders (in the docu race) since ‘Wings of Desire.’ Tom Cross, the editor of ‘Whiplash,’ was an assistant to Tim Squyres on ‘Crouching Tiger.’”

Barker rattles off a list that also includes director Bennett Miller, writer Dan Futterman, Mark Ruffalo, and the team on Mike Leigh’s “Mr. Turner”: costume designer Jacqueline Durran, d.p. Dick Pope and composer Gary Yershon. And aside from the nominees themselves, Spc’s former collaborators include people associated with the films in contention, such as “Still Alice »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Angelica’

11 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sigmund Freud would have surely had a field day with writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein, who has now devoted not one but two movies to women with metaphorical steel traps between their legs. In Lichtenstein’s 2007 debut, “Teeth,” the woman in question was a sexually curious teen suffering from an acute case of vagina dentata. In Lichtenstein’s latest, “Angelica,” the focus is on a wife and mother whose fragile health demands that she abstain from all pleasures of the flesh — a dietary restriction that leads to many strange bumps (and humps) in the night. The result is a looney psychosexual potboiler with one foot in “Masterpiece Theater” finery and the other in outre camp abandon, never fully satisfying on either count, but at least partly redeemed by a finely calibrated star turn from Jena Malone. Lacking the shock scares needed to sate the mainstream horror crowd, the film’s commercial prospects are decidedly limited. »
