Exclusive: Why Casting Monica Bellucci on ‘Mozart’ Is a Full Circle Moment for Roman Coppola

9 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A major addition to the Golden Globe-winning series, Mozart in the Jungle, is Monica Bellucci, who plays Italian diva Alessandra in season three.

With the New York orchestra still in a labor dispute, Maestro Rodrigo De Souza (Gael Garcia Bernal) accepts an offer in Venice to conduct a comeback performance for the aging diva, also known as “La Fiamma.” At an age where she has to make a decision about her voice and repertory, Alessandra is caged by her own limitations, setting off an emotional roller coaster ride for both the conductor and opera singer.

“We’re not trying to be so realistic, but we like to be authentic,” says Roman Coppola, who serves as executive producer, writer and director of the Amazon series. While the show considered the age at which an opera singer’s voice might change, they thought that Bellucci, 52, was a perfect fit regardless. “She felt authentic.”

Will "Loving" Help June 12th Become a Holiday?

12 June 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1916 Disaster epic super producer Irwin Allen is born. (More on him this afternoon)

1919 Stage legend Uta Hagen is born. Though she only ever makes three movies, she originates Tony winning roles on stage that later win Oscars for movie stars (The Country Girl and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). Also the co-author of "Respect for Acting" and a reknowned acting teacher with 70s legends Pacino & De Niro as students

1928 Oscar winning composer Richard M Sherman (of Sherman Brothers fame) is born. Jason Schwartzman plays him in Saving Mr Banks (2013) about the making of Mary Poppins (1964)

1942 Anne Frank receives a diary for her 13th birthday. She does not live much longer during the horrific events of The Holocaust but The Diary of Anne Frank becomes a key text of the 20th century. The George Stevens film adaptation (of the Pulitzer winning play of the same name by the screenwriters) released in 1959 receives 8 nominations including Best Picture and takes home three Oscars

1946 Oscar-nominated costume designer Maurizio Millenotti is born in Italy. Credits include: Otello, Hamlet (1990 version), Malèna, The Passion of the Christ and Federico Fellini's And the Ship Sails On.

1962 Three bank robbers escape from Alcatraz. The story becomes the Clint Eastwood picture Escape From Alcatraz (1979)

← 1967 The Supreme Court strikes down anti-miscenegation laws banning interracial marriage in the Loving v Virginia case. This year's Oscar hopeful Loving (2016), starring Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton tells the Loving story. There's also a movement to make June 12th, "Loving Day," an official Us holiday for celebrating multiracial families. Sadly the movie isn't opening today for this anniversary so we'll have to wait months to see it. Perhaps the 50th anniversary next year, after the story is more widely known with the movie, will help add momentum. 

1985 Dave Franco is born 

1992 Housesitter with Steve Martin, Goldie Hawn and Dana Delany hits theaters 

2010 Slow burning hit "Bulletproof" peaks on the Us charts nearly a year after its release. Two years later Beca deploys it to fuck up Aubrey's stale act in Pitch Perfect (2012)

Watch: New International Trailer For Giuseppe Tornatore's 'The Correspondence' Starring Jeremy Irons & Olga Kurylenko

30 March 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While one might think a new movie from the director behind "Cinema Paradiso" and "Malèna" might garner more attention, or at least some kind of film-festival appearance, "The Correspondence," the latest from Giuseppe Tornatore, has already quietly been released in a handful of overseas territories. It's continuing to roll out, and a new international trailer for it has landed. Read More: Review: Giuseppe Tornatore's Campy & Overcooked 'The Best Offer' Starring Geoffrey Rush & Jim Sturgess Jeremy Irons and Olga Kurylenko star in the movie, which boasts a pretty high-wire premise. The story follows a university student/stuntwoman who is reeling from the death of her stunt double, and finds solace in the arms of her astrophysics lecturer. Well, it's definitely original, and not only that, the movie has a score from Ennio Morricone. There's no U.S. distributor yet for "The Correspondence," so no word on when it will land. »
