Maurice at 30: the gay period drama the world wasn't ready for

19 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The elegant Merchant Ivory love story, starring a young Hugh Grant, was largely ignored on release but it’s now receiving a 4K restoration and might finally reach the audience it deserves

Last year, Merchant Ivory’s Howards End, now a quarter of a century old, got a 4K digital restoration that didn’t seem obviously required. Until, that is, you saw the result. Those ornate Edwardian interiors, the sea of rain-spattered umbrellas, that field of bluebells, all made newly sharp and iridescent – it seemed appropriate treatment for what stands as the quintessential work from a film-making team now synonymous with elegantly reserved costume drama. With Us distributor Cohen Media Group having bought up the Merchant Ivory library, one might have assumed A Room With a View would be next in line for this pristine treatment. The Remains of the Day, perhaps.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Sea Sorrow’

17 May 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“I feel like I’m back in ‘Richard III,'” Vanessa Redgrave notes solemnly at one point in her impassioned refugee-crisis documentary “Sea Sorrow.” Diagnosing Shakespearean levels of villainy and hubris in many of today’s political leaders — with a particular swipe at Britain’s Conservative government — she continues: “Those appalling historical figures are reemerging today.” It’s a dramatic analogy in all senses, though that is to be expected from a great classical actress making her debut as a documentarian. Sincere, sometimes impressionistic and formally naive, Redgrave’s 72-minute cri de coeur feigns neither tough investigative nous nor lofty aesthetic artistry as it commendably implores politicians and citizens to open their hearts, minds and borders to those affected by war in Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Shot on rudimentary digital, it’s more extended PSA than cinema, but one senses the filmmaker herself knows her message outranks her method. As such, »

First look at Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen in Howards End

7 May 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The BBC and Starz have released the first official image from the upcoming Howards End limited series, which features Hayley Atwell as Margaret Schlegel and Matthew Macfadyen as Henry Wilcox.

The four-part Howards End series is based on the classic E.M. Forster novel and has been scripted by Oscar-winner Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester By the Sea). Here’s the official synopsis:

Margaret Schlegel is an intelligent, idealistic young woman who is courted by the older Henry Wilcox, a self-made conservative businessman, after his wife Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond) dies unexpectedly and he becomes owner of Howards End. Meanwhile Margaret’s passionate and capricious younger sister Helen Schlegel (Philippa Coulthard) takes up the cause of Leonard Bast (Joseph Quinn) a young bank clerk who falls on hard times at work and at home with his partner Jacky (Rosalind Eleazar). In the absence of their late parents, the sisters’ loving but interfering Aunt »

Howard’s End First Look Image Of Hayley Atwell & Matthew Macfadyen

5 May 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Howard’s End, the limited series based on the E.M. Forster novel that is set to air on BBC and Starz, released a photo so that people finally have something to ground their potential excitement. While a first look release is never quite the sensation some may hope, in this case, it’s good to get something moving on this one just to get past the lingering effect of the good/bad news of Hayley Atwell‘s attachment to the project, which helped killed her fans’ hopes of Agent Carter revival.

The image shows Atwell (Margaret Schlegel) and Matthew Macfadyen (Henry Wilcox) at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand restaurant.

It’s hard to believe just how long it’s been since the now classic Anthony Hopkins/Emma Thompson version of the story, and if getting another take on the story isn’t enough, this one comes as Kenneth Lonergan‘s first television adaptation. »

Howards End First Look: Hayley Atwell Goes Full-On Costume Drama for Starz

4 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

She traveled back to the 1940s for Agent Carter; now Hayley Atwell is going back even further in time.

Starz has released the first photo from its miniseries adaptation of the classic E.M. Forster novel Howards End, set in circa-1900 England and starring Atwell as headstrong young woman Margaret Schlegel. (Emma Thompson won an Oscar for playing Margaret in the 1992 film version of Howards End.) And just like Agent Carter‘s Peggy, Margaret seems to have a fondness for hats.

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown

13 April 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The 2017 Cannes official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, red-carpet star power, and the rarest breed — a handful of players who could return to North America as Oscar contenders.

Nicole Kidman will be stuffing her trunks with evening gowns, as she will need to walk the Palais steps at least four times: twice with Colin Farrell, for Cannes favorite Sofia Coppola‘s Civil War potboiler “The Beguiled” (Focus Features) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24), both in Competition, and again for John Cameron Mitchell‘s midnighter “How to Talk with Girls at Parties” (A24) and a preview of Jane Campion‘s returning Sundance Channel series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” How the three films play in Cannes will determine if the Oscar perennial returns for another go-round.

Isabelle Huppert won the Cesar and was close — we think — to winning the Oscar for “Elle. »

New to Streaming: ‘Silence,’ ‘Elle,’ ’20th Century Women,’ and More

17 March 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented. »

The Marisa Tomei Oscars Conspiracy That's Fascinated Hollywood For Decades

2 March 2017 2:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

For anyone who watched the Academy Awards on Sunday, the jaw-dropping best picture mix-up for La La Land and Moonlight might have brought to mind a long-circulated Oscars conspiracy regarding Marisa Tomei. Although the two events aren't exactly alike, it's no wonder connections between the 2017 ceremony and a moment at the awards all the way back in 1993 are being drawn. At the 65th Annual Academy Awards, Tomei took the stage to accept the Oscar for best supporting actress from presenter Jack Palance thanks to her work in My Cousin Vinny. Elated and giggly, she celebrated other Hollywood actresses in her speech, profusely thanked costar Joe Pesci, proceeded to the press room to take photos with best supporting actor winner Gene Hackman, and that was that. Except, it wasn't; what should have been a purely celebratory milestone in her career ended up turning into one of Hollywood's oldest and most interesting award season rumors. »
