A Classic is Born...on Masterpiece Contemporary

17 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

guest review by Darwyn Carson With a solid reputation for superior dramas, PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre has undoubtedly been a hard act to follow. Now its close cousin, Masterpiece Contemporary raises the bar tonight with the tightly woven political thriller, Page Eight. Writer-director David Hare (the playwright perhaps best known in the States for his screenplays The Hours and The Reader) has culled together a terrific cast of players led by Bill Nighy that includes Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Judy Davis, Felicity Jones, and Rachel Weisz. A traditional spy drama, taut with suspense, Page Eight almost feels sophisticated in its darkness, with undercurrents of danger lurking in the shadows and veiled threats being made from unexpected quarters, wholly reminiscent of— —Noir when it was king. Long-time military intelligence analyst Johnny Worricker (Nighy) is a passionate man, about his art collection, jazz records and the many women he has wooed—some of whom he’s. »

Dom Hemingway – The Review

17 April 2014 3:14 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Oh, the curse of being an attractive film star! Nobody takes you seriously. Those poor, pretty people! Enough with the bitter sarcasm, I know, but there’s more than a bit of truth in it, especially for actresses. Often Oscar has rewarded them for “glamming-down”! Charlize Theron gained weight, wore fake choppers, and endured hours in the make-up chair for Monster and took home the gold as did Nicole Kidman when she donned a phony “schnozzola” in The Hours. And there’s reward in tackling a role from the down-trodden classes as Halle Berry did in Monster’S Ball. Of course, this is not exclusive actress strategy. Brad Pitt scored a nomination for his twitchy turn in 12 Monkeys and just a few weeks ago mega-hunk Matthew McConaghuey grabbed Best Actor for going gaunt and sickly for Dallas Buyers Club. With Dom Hemingway Brit glamour guy Jude Law has forsaken his »

5 April 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — With several films set to debut this year, including such disparate turns as a taxidermist villainess, mysterious amnesiac and an actress-turned-princess, Nicole Kidman will again become a familiar face in theaters. While maintaining a steady presence in Hollywood for more than two decades, the 46-year-old Academy Award winner has been focusing more in recent years on raising her two daughters with husband and country star Keith Urban — away from the spotlight in Nashville, Tenn. For her latest role in "The Railway Man," out April 11, the "Moulin Rouge" and "The Hours" star plays a supportive wife to World War II veteran Eric Lomax (Colin Firth).

Win: Carrie Blu-Ray

1 April 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

To celebrate this week’s release of Carrie on Blu-ray and DVD, we’re giving 3 lucky WhatCulture.com readers the opportunity to win a copy of the film on Blu-ray.

The film centres on a haunting and chaotic chain of events, as Kimberley Peirce, director of the acclaimed Boys Don’t Cry steers an exhilarating reimagining of Stephen King’s seminal bestseller. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me In), and Oscar nominee Julianne Moore (Boogie Nights, The Hours) the chilling and brutal classic is brought into the present day.

Carrie envisages the eponymous outcast’s life in a modern day high school, as the cripplingly shy teenager negotiates cruelty from her classmates and an oppressive home life under the fanatically religious rule of her gravely disturbed mother. As the pressure on the timid young girl grows, she discovers she possesses telekinetic powers, which when the bullying reaches a climax, »

2015 Oscar Predictions: First Look at Best Picture

19 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's too early to know much of anything about the race for Best Picture at the 2015 Oscars, but that being said, two of the films in my list of early predicted nominees have already been seen, one is even in theaters. So, is it really all that earlyc Also, isn't it about time we start seeing more Oscar contenders at the beginning of the year rather than the back-loaded log jam at the end of the year that seems to continually prove opening your film in December isn't exactly the best way to find Oscar gloryc However, for those of you that are likely to rush to the comments saying, "This is ridiculous! Wait until later in the year." All I can say is you ought to reevaluate your definition of the word "ridiculous" for more important matters, this is about fun and about getting excited for what are likely »
