The thing about evil by Anne-Katrin Titze

Roberto Andò on Connie Nielsen's character Claire: "I based her on someone like J.K. Rowling but also on others who have become hugely wealthy through their writing" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At his hotel on Central Park South, director Roberto Andò discussed with me the connections to Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess and Torn Curtain in his latest film, which character was inspired by Jk Rowling, the majestic location where he filmed, and how "evil serves no purpose."

The Confessions (Le Confessioni), co-written by Angelo Pasquini, shot by Maurizio Calvesi, and starring Toni Servillo (Paolo Sorrentino's Oscar-winning The Great Beauty and Andò's Viva La Libertà) has an exceptional ensemble cast including Connie Nielsen (Patty Jenkins's Wonder Woman), Marie-Josée Croze (John Michael McDonagh's Calvary), Daniel Auteuil (Michael Haneke's Caché), Moritz Bleibtreu (Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run), Lambert Wilson (Jérôme Salle's L'Odyssée), Pierfrancesco Favino (Roger Michell

Frankie Shaw of Showtime’s ‘Smilf’ on That Season Finale

Frankie Shaw’s Golden Globe-nominated work on Showtime’s “Smilf” is multifaceted, to say the least. In the comedy, she’s Bridgette Bird, a Bostonian flailing as she tries to both provide for her child and find something resembling fulfillment. The show sometimes trades in fantasy—one episode is an homage to “Run Lola Run”—but it also depicts Bridgette’s traumas in an unvarnished fashion. (The season ended with the character resolving to confront the father who sexually abused her after matching with someone who looks like him on Tinder.) But Shaw’s responsibilities on set aren’t just limited to performing. She’s also a writer, executive producer, and sometimes director. Backstage spoke to her about her unusual style of preparing for auditions, and the recent Season 1 finale of “Smilf,” which was renewed for a second season. How does it feel being nominated for a Golden Globe?Oh my god.

'Babylon Berlin' Sets Ratings Record for Germany's Sky

Babylon Berlin, a big-budget 1920s crime series co-directed by Run Lola Run's Tom Tykwer, is a hit in Germany.

Sky Deutschland, which is part of pan-European pay TV giant Sky and premiered the series in Germany last week, says 1.19 million people watched the show's first episode, a record for the network.

The Essential Jared Leto Films

Tom Jolliffe looks at the essential Jared Leto films…

Concluding our build up to Blade Runner 2049 with a series of essentials on the principal cast, we finish with Jared Leto. A musician/actor who seems to have been around for a while now, ageless and when perusing his CV you will find that he’s not done quite as many films as you’d think. Needless to say though, he doesn’t merely flit in every now and again between music just on a whim. Leto takes the acting craft incredibly seriously and has been known in a number of roles to be intensely method in his approach.

So, as I itch with bated breath to see Blade Runner 2049, here is (in no particular order) the essential Jared Leto.

Requiem for a Dream

Leto doesn’t often headline. He’s the antagonist, the support man and a chameleon-esque character actor.

‘Never Let Go’ Review

Stars: Angela Dixon, Nigel Whitmey, Lisa Eichhorn, Velibor Topic, Heather Peace, Rami Nasr, Sarah Perles, Samantha Bolter, Michael Xavier, Glenn Salvage, Sanita Simms, Darcie Lincoln | Written and Directed by Howard J. Ford

How best to describe Never Let Go? How about a movie that feels like Paul Greengrass directed Taken, with a kick-ass leading female of T2 Linda Hamilton proportions…

In truth, in my humble opinion Never Let Go is actually way better than those Taken movies. I know, I know, I liked them when they first came out as well, but this movie completely took me by surprise… In the best possible way. Ladies and Gents, Angela Bloody Dixon. This leading lady is fantastic, she grips the viewer by the balls and takes you on a thrilling, tour de force ride, leaving you wondering exactly how far would you go for your kids.

So I guess I should give

Franka Potente Stars In New Pro-Vegan Campaign

Bourne Identity and Run Lola Run actor Franka Potente has teamed up with PETA Germany for a new ad and video campaign, in which she shares that going vegan three years ago changed her life.

“I went vegan for health reasons,” she says in the video. “My choice was to either take medication that I didn’t want to take or change the way I eat. And I love a good challenge, so I walked out of the doctor’s office vegan.”

“I felt different pretty much immediately,” continues the German-born Taboo star. “I always had trouble with lingering throat inflammation, and I got rid of that immediately, and my skin cleared up. I slept better.” Now, she’s encouraging others to do the same: “Try it out and see how you feel. If you feel better after a week, try another week.”
