8 November 2013 7:00 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Natalie Portman made her second Dior-related appearance of the week at Thursday night's Guggenheim International Gala in NYC. She and Jessica Biel were both clad in designs by creative director Raf Simons at the event and partied with famed artists like Christopher Wool, James Turrell, and Jeff Koons. It's been a busy week for both actresses, who have stepped out for multiple high-profile events in the Big Apple. On Wednesday, Natalie popped up at a Cinema Society screening of her film Thor: The Dark World before attending a Dior-hosted afterparty in one of the brand's stunning pieces. Jessica also made the museum rounds in Manhattan, walking the red carpet for the Museum of Modern Art's annual Film Benefit on Tuesday. The soiree was in honor of Tilda Swinton and put on by Chanel head Karl Lagerfeld. Before her big night out, Jessica traveled to Orlando, Fl, for the wedding of »

Jessica Biel Steals the Show on Tilda Swinton's Big Night

6 November 2013 5:45 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

All eyes were on Jessica Biel when she dropped by the Museum of Modern Art's annual Film Benefit in NYC last night while wearing a Chanel frock and clutch. The benefit, which was put on by Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld and held in honor of actress Tilda Swinton, attracted quite a few budding stars, including Imogen Poots and chart-topping 16-year-old singer Lorde, who went for a goth look complete with combat boots and plum lipstick. Of course, the usual NYC power crowd was also at the event, including Anna Wintour and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who skipped Election Night fun as Democrat Bill de Blasio was voted to take his seat when he leaves office next year. Jessica is back in the Big Apple after traveling with husband Justin Timberlake to Orlando, Fl, on Saturday to attend Chris Kirkpatrick's wedding. The nuptials proved to be a veritable *Nsync reunion, »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Ginger & Rosa,' 'Trance,' 'Pieta'

23 July 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Ginger & Rosa"

What's It About? Sally Potter's ("Orlando") film follows two inseparable teenage girls, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) during the onset of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1960s London. While Ginger's interests lie in protests and poetry, Rosa's are different, including Ginger's father (Alessandro Nivola).

Why We're In: While Fanning steals the film with a strong and powerful performance, "Ginger & Rosa" also has a largely talented cast including Annette Bening, Oliver Platt, Christina Hendricks, and Timothy Spall. Potter's film is both a moving, coming-of-age story as well as a detailed look at the politics and tension of the era.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Pieta"

What's It About? From South Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-duk, ("Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring"), "Pieta" is both a brutal and heartfelt story of an isolated, merciless loan shark who violently threatens his borrowers for payback money. »

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'Pacific Rim' & More

12 July 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"Well, the first thing is that I love monsters, I identify with monsters." — Guillermo del Toro

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week sees one of my most anticipated releases of the summer, "Pacific Rim," making land at the competitive blockbuster season. Whether it can survive at the box office, as the dismal tracking numbers bode ill for, is incidental, as it’s a miracle that such a bonkers movie exists at all, even in sweded form let alone $175-million-dollar form.

*Special Notice*

Brooklyn's Bottleneck Gallery has a new movie-themed art print show going up tonight titled "Where is My Mind," and yours truly has crafted a special tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies, Terry Gilliam's "Brazil." The exhibit runs through July 26, and prints go on sale online Saturday at noon. Check it out — there are some amazingly trippy pieces by some dynamite amigos that all film fans will go nuts for, »

The Comedian, Byzantium, The Big Wedding: this week's new film releases

31 May 2013 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Comedian | Byzantium | The Big Wedding | Populaire | The Purge | Blood | Everybody Has A Plan | No One Lives | Man To Man | Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

The Comedian

(15) (Tom Shkolnik, 2012, UK) Edward Hogg, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. 79 mins

There's an uncanny degree of naturalism to this downbeat sketch of a lost London soul, confused over his sexuality, his faltering stand-up career and his place in life. It was made with a Dogme-like set of rules encouraging spontaneous improvisation in real locales. The result is somewhere between Mike Leigh and mumblecore, a meandering slice of life that often hits the truth.

Byzantium

(15) (Neil Jordan, 2013, UK/Us/Ire) Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Sam Riley. 118 mins

There might be little left to say about vampires, but genre veteran Jordan has a better right (and better actors) than most to say it. This tale of two 200-year-old women hiding out in a coastal town is more mature and less gory than most offerings. »

Jurassic Memory (Feat. Tilda Swinton)

15 April 2013 9:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What did you see over the weekend? Sadly I didn't catch a movie (a rarity!) outside of festival screeners. I know you're probably over Jurassic Park (1993) which we discussed last week at length. I mean it's 20 years old plus fading in its second weekend of rerelease, but I have one more Jurassic Memory to share if you'll indulge me.

You may have noticed that I didn't announce my "Best Shot" so I thought I'd draw you a little Movie Diary in order to do so. Better late than never. I bet you're dying to know how Tilda Swinton's Orlando fits into a Jurassic Park comic.  »

'Ginger & Rosa' review: Elle Fanning and Christina Hendricks star in a jaundiced look at '60s British radical chic

28 March 2013 6:01 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The principles of '60s radicalism clash with the murkier morality of those who practiced it in Sally Potter's sharply observed coming-of-age melodrama, "Ginger & Rosa." The filmmaker, still best-known for "Orlando" 20 years after that breakout work, presents this conflict as it seen through the eyes of a teenage girl.

Ginger (Elle Fanning), nicknamed because of the red hair she inherited from her mother (Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men"), is a hip, jazz-and-poetry loving teen daughter of a radical chic couple in 1962 London. Mom has a hint of the traditional about her. But Dad (Alessandro Nivolla) insists that she and her friends call him by his first name, Roland.

Roland's a writer and dedicated pacifist. Mom gave up a career in art to have Ginger right at the end of World War II.

It's what ended World War II that drives Ginger to the nascent nuclear disarmament movement. Of course, »

Sally Potter talks Ginger & Rosa

27 March 2013 6:38 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Sally Potter made her stamp on film consciousness with the seminal Orlando, based on Virginia Woolf.s novel spanning 400 years in which a woman changes sex, country, and circumstances. It was stunning to look at and stylistically radical. Potter brings a stark and radical intimacy to Ginger and Rosa, her latest film about two girlfriends living in London at a politically sensitive time, as they navigate adolescence. We spoke with Potter in Toronto. M&C: How much of the film is taken from your own life? Potter: All writers ruthlessly scavenge in their own lives, from material not just their own direct experience but the observation of other peoples experience and then in the act of writing that »

Elle Fanning and five great young actors working now

19 March 2013 11:49 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Picture yourself at the age of 13: you're likely obnoxious in a non-specific, unmalicious way; you are probably harbouring a heavy, full-on crush on either a schoolmate, out-of-reach celeb or platonic friend and your main focus in life revolves around not getting in trouble with your parents, avoiding being grounded, staying out of your older sibling's way and doing well at school. Elle Fanning would like a word with you.

The younger Fanning sister, Dakota is 19, filmed the Sally Potter (Yes, Orlando) drama Ginger & Rosa a year ago and at 13, manages to portray the angst of 17-year-old Ginger with an authenticity and ferociousness that seems absolutely at odds with the limited amount of time she's spent on this planet. And yet. Like a young Meryl, she is somehow able to access So Many swirling feelings that are integral to the teenage girl experience that she herself is only on the cusp of. »

Critic's Notebook: Why 'Ginger and Rosa' Is Sally Potter's Best Film

16 March 2013 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After a diverse and lengthy early career that encompassed experimental film, dance, theater and music, and following the success of her 1992 arthouse hit "Orlando," Sally Potter settled into a semi-sustained period of more-or-less narrative filmmaking, directing six pictures from "Orlando" through her newly released "Ginger and Rosa." But even as she began working from such conventional materials as 2000’s coming-of-age-in-soon-to-be-overtaken-by-Nazis-Paris offering "The Man Who Cried," the restless experimental impulse that fueled her earliest 8mm efforts was never far from the surface. Part of the sport in tracking Potter's work over the last two decades has been in observing this push-pull between the director's wildest impulses (the rather misguided decision, in 2004's "Yes," to have the characters speak entirely in verse, for example) and her attempts to hew to a more traditionally story-oriented mode of filmmaking. The truth is, the two impulses never made a very comfortable »

'Ginger & Rosa' Review: Affecting Portrait of Girls on the Verge

14 March 2013 2:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Growing up is hard to do, as countless coming-of-age movies have shown, some more affectingly than others. With "Ginger & Rosa," British avant-garde filmmaker Sally Potter ("Orlando"), offers up a strong entry into the field with what is by far her most appealingly mainstream film to date. An intimate character study, "Ginger & Rosa" is set in England in 1962. It's told mainly from the viewpoint of Ginger (Elle Fanning), a 16-year old budding poet growing up in post-wwii England alongside her best friend, Rosa (Alice Englert, the daughter of director Jane »

Review: Intimate & Devastating ‘Ginger & Rosa’ Features A Transformative Elle Fanning Performance

12 March 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lovely and devastating, challenging yet worthwhile, Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" may be the English filmmaker's best since "Orlando," and perhaps her most accessible to date. The intimate and sensual picture also features yet another terrific performance by 14-year-old Elle Fanning, who is quickly becoming the most compelling teenage actor working in movies today. But this time, as the lead, Fanning is transformative, heartbreakingly conveying the inner life of an adolescent with an almost eerily nuanced command of her craft. A coming-of-age teen friendship tale set against the backdrop of Cold War nuclear anxiety and the burgeoning sexual revolution in mid-'60s London, "Ginger & Rosa" tackles the idea of bonds shattered by ideological differences and examines the sobering cost of the newfound intellectualism, which often came at the expense of proper nurturing and guidance. In London in 1962, two teenage best friends, Ginger (Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert, the »

Review: Ginger & Rosa Goes Nuclear

31 January 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The new film by director Sally Potter (Orlando, Tango Lesson) starts with stock footage of an atomic blast. A great way to open a film, if it was an Ed Wood B-picture. But Ginger & Rosa is not one of those. It's the story of BFFs Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert, daughter of Kiwi director Jane Campion), both born in 1945, going through their lives in 60s London, where everyone lives under the shadow of nuclear annihilation. It's also the time of the nuclear family. Rosa's father split early on. Ginger's ultra-liberal dad, Roland (Alessandro Nivola), can't seem to keep his pants zipped, causing heartaches for mom (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks) and not providing any emotional support for the increasingly confused Ginger.

Girls Are Trouble in 'Ginger & Rosa' Trailer

3 January 2013 7:05 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Elle Fanning and Alice Englert are up to no good.

One of this year's quieter though certainly anticipated releases is "Ginger & Rosa," a tense coming-of-age tale from director Sally Potter (you may know her from "Orlando" or the Joan Allen movie in which everyone spoke in iambic pentameter, "Yes").

"Ginger & Rosa" concentrates on the escalating and eventually decaying relationship between two free-spirited girls (Fanning and Englert), whose dabblings in rebellion, sexuality and perhaps something a bit more sinister are set against the backdrop of the political and social unrest of 1960s London. The supporting cast is nothing short of amazing, with Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Timothy Spall on hand to play the grown-ups.

Is it us or is Elle Fanning having something of a more interesting career than that of her big sister, Dakota? The younger Fanning is doing a bang-up job balancing edgier projects »
