12 February 2016 8:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 2016 Berlin International Film Festival Announces First Wave of Generation Section Rosemary Myers' feature film, "Girl Asleep," is an original and eclectic Australian film competing in the Generation 14plus section of the Berlin International Film Festival.  The coming-of-age dramedy is set in a private school in the 1970s. In what looks like a more comical version of "Heavenly Creatures," the movie follows the daily and fantasy life of a chronically shy 15-year-old girl who is privately falling apart.

First Trailer For Lee Tamahori’s ‘The Patriarch,’ Premiering at Berlin 2016

8 February 2016 12:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Lee Tamahori is best known as the journeyman director of disposable action films like Next, XXX: State of the Union, and the bizarre, awful James Bond installment, Die Another Day, but the New Zealand director is cinematic royalty in his own country. In 2014, New Zealand conducted the first survey of Kiwi national cinema, and voters picked Tamahori’s break-out 1994 film, Once Were Warriors, as the best film, rounding out established favorites like Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures and Jane Campion’s The Piano.

Following 2011’s flawed but interesting The Devil’s Double, Tamahori will release two films this year, Emperor, a period piece revenge story, and the prestige picture, The Patriarch, which we have the first trailer for today. Based on the book, “Bulibasha” by Witi Ihimaera, who wrote the Whale Rider, The Patriarch follows the story of two Maori families who have had a feud that’s been generations long, »

Why ‘The Big Chill,’ Therapy Inspired Clea DuVall to Make ‘The Intervention’

25 January 2016 10:14 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Clea DuVall has impressed audiences with performances in “Argo,” “Girl, Interrupted” and HBO’s “Carnivàle.” Now she moves behind the camera with “The Intervention,” a story of four couples gathering at a lakeside cabin, that premieres at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Think of it as “The Big Chill” with a little more acid. Under the guise of vacationing,  the couples try to convince two of their friends to stop bickering and get a divorce. DuVall wrote the script for the film and co-stars along with Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother”), Melanie Lynskey (“Heavenly Creatures”), Natasha Lyonne (“But I’m a Cheerleader”) and Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”).

DuVall spoke with Variety about how therapy, a certain ’80s classic and a new lease on life inspired her feature film directing debut.

What prompted you to tell this story?

It was really this moment of self awareness that I had. »

7th Time the Charm for Cate & Kate

14 January 2016 7:11 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Murtada here to celebrate the nominations for Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet. It's the 7th nomination for both. Blanchett for Best Actress in Carol and Winslet for supporting actress in Steve Jobs. (Which means they're both moving up that Oscar Hierarchy) .

The two have always been linked since they have (essentially) the same name and started winning the hearts of cinephiles around the same time in the mid 90s.

Although younger by 6 years it was Winslet who first made a splash in Heavenly Creatures (1994) and received her first Oscar nomination a year later for Sense and Sensibility (1995). Three years after that Blanchett announced herself as a force to be reckoned with - and got her first nomination - with Elizabeth (1998).

Winslet’s other nominations are for Titanic (1997), Iris (2001), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Little Children (2006) and The Reader (2008). Blanchett’s are The Aviator (2004), Notes on Scandal (2006), Elizabeth: The Golden Age »
