‘Five Nights In Maine’ Exclusive Clip: David Oyelowo & Rosie Perez Bond Over A Tragic Loss
Grief can take hold of even the strongest people and refuse to let go. It’s why they describe it as a “process.” Maris Curran’s “Five Nights In Maine” takes this idea to heart as it follows Sherwin (David Oyelowo), a recent widower who lost his wife Fiona (Hani Furstenberg) in a car accident. Stricken by grief and depression, he travels to a remote corner of Maine to see Fiona’s cancer-stricken mother Lucinda (Dianne Wiest) who’s being taken care of by caring nurse Ann (Rosie Perez). Tensions run high as both Sherwin and Lucinda deal with the tragedy, and struggle to come to terms with their feelings towards each other and Fiona. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below featuring Sherwin and Ann discussing the loss.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1993

  • Den of Geek
Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 10 Oct 2013 - 03:27

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 1993...

What a year 1993 was. It saw the release of Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Bill Clinton became president. Season three of Deep Space Nine premiered on Us television. UK politician Douglas Hurd visited Argentina. Cyndi Lauper released her album Hat Full Of Stars.

Aside from those earth shattering events, we'll probably remember 1993, in cinema terms, as the year Jurassic Park dominated the box office like an angry Tyrannosaurus. A true phenomenon, its profits doubled those of the second most watched film in 1993 cinemas, Mrs Doubtfire, and almost three times as much as the movie below that - the Harrison Ford thriller, The Fugitive.

But as ever, there was so much more to the 1993 movie landscape than dinosaurs and Robin Williams dressed as an old woman.

'American Idol' Recap: Pia Kills, As James Weeps

  • MTV Newsroom
Wednesday night's "American Idol" was supposed to be all about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But leave it to Jimmy Iovine's sleepwalking producers and Nigel Lythgoe's showbiz pizzazz to make it rock softer than an Air Supply acoustic album.

That's not to say the top nine of "American Idol X: Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain" didn't give it their all and then some. This may go down as the sweatiest "Idol" episode ever. Did Idolland's air conditioning break, or is there a fire within these contestants causing them to look like James Brown on Pcp?

As an added challenge this week, producers handicapped the girls by forcing them to wear Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. collection of leopard-print diapers and silk tube-top jumpsuits. I guess they really don't want the Season 10 "Idol" to have a vagina. Paging Gloria Steinem!

'Love and Other Drugs': A tale of two trailers

Take one part "Middle Men" (product launches in the age of '90s excess) and two parts "Untamed Heart" (young love with an expiration date) and you've got Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway's "Love and Other Drugs."

At least that's what you get from the first of two trailers for the upcoming film, which emphasizes Gyllenhaal's high-rolling lifestyle as a pharmaceutical sales rep at the dawn of Viagra before totally switching gears and divulging that love interest Hathaway is secretly ailing from Parkinson's disease. It's all very melodramatic.

And then there's a second trailer, with its happy-go-lucky "Just Like Heaven" soundtrack that pitches the movie as rom-com about a player changed by love. No mention of illness, apart from a few subtle shots of Gyllenhaal looking deeply serious in a hospital, just a lot of pop music.

Gyllenhaal and Hathaway are two of our favorite actors, and unless you

Actors Casting Directors Love: Part 1

Ellen Lewis on Michael ShannonWhen I was asked to write about an actor I love, Michael Shannon immediately jumped into my mind. It probably stems from the fact that I'm from Chicago, where Michael lived and worked for many years.In 1998 Paula Muzik, an agent in Chicago, called to tell me about Michael, who was coming to New York in the play "Killer Joe." There was an intensity and disturbing quality to Michael's performance in "Killer Joe." Combined with his physical presence and dark humor, he slightly frightened you. He was unlike any actor I had seen before, and it was exciting to think about the roles one could try him for.Years later I was casting "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" for Sidney Lumet. Sid's office at the time was at Sound One. Casting for Sidney, as other casting directors can attest, is an amazing experience—and unusual,

Written by Tom Sierchio (whose last credit comes via Untamed Heart - the 1993 pic starring Christian Slater and Marisa Tomei), Taravella mixes the rom com with a supernatural element -- perhaps in the vein of The Time Traveler's Wife - but with younger leads. I get the sense that this is the sort of project that was circulating in the system and needed a couple of impassioned folks in the biz that are seeing the project with another set of eyes.

Weeds/30 Rock Director Scott Ellis to Helm Supernatural Romantic Comedy Taravella

  • Collider.com
I’m a sucker for a romantic comedy with a good high-concept hook, so I am prematurely hopeful for the supernatural romantic comedy Taravella that Winchester Capital Management has just picked up. According to Variety, the script from Tom Sierchio (Untamed Heart) outlines “a love story about a beautiful but eccentric young woman with amnesia who falls out of the sky one day into the life of a young man.”

Scott Ellis, who has five Tony nominations and a 30 Rock Emmy nomination under his belt, is set to direct. Keep your fingers crossed for the most essential component of a successful rom-com: solid casting.

Seven Pounds Vs. Untamed Heart

This Christmas season, after the post-Turducken chest pains have subsided enough to allow movement, you may be inspired by your food-induced minor cardiac trauma to watch a movie about a heart patient romance. But now that there are at least two modern movies about heart patient romance, the 1993 Marisa Tomei/Christian Slater movie, Untamed Heart, and Will Smith's current cinematic crusade to prove that he's a better human being than everyone else, Seven Pounds, you have a very difficult choice to make—a choice almost as difficult as deciding who is worthy enough to receive your bone marrow. So which organ transplant romance will your body reject faster? Let's spot the differences! (This goes without saying, but spoiler alert for both Seven Pounds and a special honorary, 15-year-old spoiler alert for Untamed Heart) Our (possibly annoying) Protagonist: Untamed Heart: Marisa Tomei, a cheerful, caring, if lonely Minnesota waitress who.

Slater Rejects Plea Bargain

  • WENN
Slater Rejects Plea Bargain
Actor Christian Slater has rejected a plea bargain deal from prosecutors on a charge of allegedly groping a woman in a New York street. The Untamed Heart star was charged with forcible touching after he allegedly grabbed a woman's buttocks as she was buying groceries in Manhattan in May. Slater and his attorney insist the case should be dismissed because it's ridiculous, but the actor faces a year in prison if he's found guilty. Under the plea bargain offered him yesterday morning, Slater would have pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree harassment in return for three days of community service. The actor sat motionless during the brief hearing, but chatted with fans outside the Manhattan Criminal Court. Judge Richard Weinberg has scheduled Slater to return to court in September for a ruling. The actor will be hoping to avoid any sentencing as he is due to fly to London at the end of September to rehearse for upcoming West End play Sweet Bird Of Youth.
