Film investors’ fear of the Bard is burying my Richard II, says James Ivory

12 August 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Veteran director claims financiers think he’s crazy for attempting Shakespeare adaptation

He directed Merchant-Ivory classics such as The Remains of the Day, Howards End and A Room with a View, but American director James Ivory is struggling to interest investors in his latest project. The problem, it seems, lies with his writer: William Shakespeare. For more than five years, Ivory has tried in vain to raise money for a cinema adaptation of Richard II.

Despite 50 years of critical acclaim and Oscar recognition, plus British actors Tom Hiddleston and Damian Lewis lined up to star in his production, financiers are refusing to part with their money. “They look at you like you’re crazy,” he said. “There is an assumption that there is no money to be made from such an investment.”

Howards End review – a welcome return to the big screen

30 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins star in a gorgeous restoration of the Merchant Ivory period drama

A new 4K restoration to celebrate its 25th anniversary means director-producer duo James Ivory and Ismail Merchant’s 1992 period drama is back on the big screen. Their gorgeous, textured adaption of Em Forster’s 1910 novel is fierce and deeply romantic, political, emotion-led, respectful of music and literature, impeccably dressed and, in one of the characters’ own words, “overexpressive”. A bit like its heroines, then, the Schlegel sisters, Margaret (Emma Thompson) and Helen (Helena Bonham Carter), champagne socialists whose progressive values and philanthropic impulses are tested by their emotional connections to men who sit both above and below them on the socioeconomic ladder. “The poor are poor; one is sorry for them, but there it is,” growls the wealthy Henry Wilcox (Anthony Hopkins), the wealthy owner of Howards End and Margaret’s eventual suitor.

Movie Review – Howards End: 25th Anniversary 4k Restoration (1992)

28 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Howards End: 25th anniversary 4k restoration , 1992.

Directed by James Ivory.

Starring Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Helena Bonham Carter, Vanessa Redgrave, Samuel West, and Prunella Scales.

Synopsis:

Based on the novel by E M Forster, the story of three families.  The Schlegels, two educated, politically minded sisters and their scholarly brother.  The Wilcox family, headed by a wealthy businessman.  And the Basts, she with a shady past and he constantly struggling to keep enough money coming into their down at heel home.  They are all linked by the country house called Howards End.

In the late 80s and early 90s, the combination of producer Ishmael Merchant and director James Ivory could do no wrong.  It had been a long haul – their company was founded in 1961 – but A Room With A View (1986) changed all that and they reached their peak with another E M Forster adaptation, Howards End (1992), followed swiftly by »

Howards End review – sumptuous heritage cinema with real passion

28 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter and Anthony Hopkins star in the rereleased Merchant-Ivory wealth tragedy based on Em Forster’s novel

Twenty-five years on, Howards End is rereleased in cinemas: a sumptuous piece of heritage prestige cinema produced by Ismail Merchant, directed by James Ivory and adapted from Em Forster’s 1910 novel by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. It looks as handsome and high-minded as ever, and not dated, though it is for me slightly difficult to recapture the euphoric enthusiasm which made this such a multi-Oscar triumph: nine nominations, three wins, including Emma Thompson’s best actress, which was to make her, after her Sense and Sensibility best adaptation win three years later, still the only person to receive Academy Awards in both writing and acting.

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, »

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. »
