‘Frantz’ Blu-ray Review

20 July 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paula Beer, Pierre Niney, Ernst Stötzner, Marie Gruber, Anton von Lucke | Written by François Ozon, Philippe Piazzo | Directed by François Ozon

A remake of Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 film Broken Lullaby, itself based on a stage play, Frantz is the latest character-based drama from prolific French director François Ozon. Deeply melancholy and very moving, it’s a proper old school tearjerker, and more accessible than its austere monochrome aesthetic might imply.

1919. Widowed Anna (Paula Beer) lives in Quedlinberg with the Hoffmeisters, the parents of her late husband, Frantz, who was killed in battle the previous year. One day Anna visits Frantz’s grave and finds fresh flowers. The flowers were laid by a visiting Frenchman named Adrien (Pierre Niney). He says he knew Frantz.

The Hoffmeisters tentatively welcome Adrien into their home. Mrs Hoffmeister (Marie Gruber) and Anna are keen to establish a posthumous emotional connection with Frantz via Adrien. »

‘Wonderstruck’ Dp Edward Lachman Tells All: How He Created the Eloquence of Silent Movies and the Grit of ‘The French Connection’

20 May 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Todd Haynes loves period films, and capturing the look of the eras’ movies, but he doesn’t stop there; he’s obsessed with the visual languages as well. And all of that would be impossible without Haynes’ longtime cinematographer Edward Lachman, who takes a forensic approach: If you want the look, it makes sense to use the tools and production modes that created it.

In “Far From Heaven,” Lachman figured out how to recreate the manufactured studio look of Douglas Sirk’s 1950s Universal melodramas, while shooting on real locations. For “Carol,” he mirrored the color palette and sense of composition of mid-century color photographers like Saul Leiter.

Cannes 2017: Todd Haynes' 'Wonderstruck' Inspires the Kid in All of Us

18 May 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Do you remember what it was like to be a kid? That boundless sense of wonder, that feeling that everything could be magical? Trips to museums or big cities were the most spectacular experiences, and even though sometimes things were tough at home, you had your friends to cheer you up. Wonderstruck, the latest film from Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven, I'm Not There, Carol), is about that sense of wonder that kids have. It is, in a way, a movie for kids, about kids, but it is still enjoyable for adults as well. Especially those adults who can still remember that kid inside of us, even if he's hiding somewhere in a dark corner. The film interweaves two storylines following two deaf kids as they escape their homes and travel to New York City. Wonderstruck is a very ambitious film. Haynes takes on the especially unique challenge of combining »

Cannes Review: ‘Wonderstruck’ Finds Todd Haynes Struggling for the Sublime

18 May 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Alfred Hitchcock might have been stating the obvious when he said, “If it’s a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfect idea of what was going on.” Cinema is fundamentally a visual art, and silence is golden in Todd HaynesWonderstruck — but also a little drab. It’s the first family-oriented project from the director who has, over the course of a lauded career, been associated with the American independent movement of the 1990s (Safe, Poison) and, more recently, lush period melodrama (Far from Heaven, Carol). It’s also the latest film to be adapted from the books of writer-illustrator Brian Selznick, whose earlier work The Invention of Hugo Cabret offered a similarly against-type genre outing for Martin Scorsese when he made Hugo in 2011. The comparison, it must be said, is not flattering.

‘Wonderstruck’ Is Cannes’ First Oscar Contender and Other Revelations From Festival Press Conference

18 May 2017 4:43 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Wonderstruck” is the perfect match of rich source material and cinema. Author Brian Selznick (“Hugo”) was inspired to adapt his own graphic novel intertwining two stories from 1927 and 1977 when costume designer Sandy Powell pulled it off a shelf and said, “This should be a Todd Haynes movie.”

Selznick, following the recent model of “Room” author Emma Donoghue, secretly adapted his own script on spec, with a little advice from “Hugo” screenwriter John Logan, which doesn’t hurt. By the time the detailed screenplay, complete with sound notes, got to Haynes, the director found its cinematic riches “irresistible,” he said at the Cannes press conference. He artfully weaves a propulsive mystery, throwing the audience clues in both the black and white silent narrative and the color with a ’70s story that eventually ties all the threads together.

Julianne Moore to Star in Re-Imagining of 2013’s “Gloria”

15 May 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Julianne Moore in “Still Alice

Julianne Moore has signed on to topline a re-imagining of Sebastian Lelio’s critically acclaimed “Gloria.” The 2013 Santiago-set drama earned rave reviews and took home three awards at the Berlinale, where it made its world premiere. Paulina Garcia, the film’s star, won the Silver Bear for Best Actress.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, and emphasized that the currently untitled English-language film “won’t be a straight remake,” but “is inspired by the film’s story and characters.” Lelio is set to pen the adaptation.

Scheduled to shoot by the end of the year, the film will center on “a free-spirited woman in her 50s. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults in Los Angeles,” THR writes. “Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Arnold. Their intense passion, to which she gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair, until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that now, surprisingly, she can shine brighter than ever.”

“As one of the greatest actresses in the world, Julianne giving her interpretation of the character is not only a huge honor, it’s irresistible,” said Lelio. “It’s going to be like jazz, you’ll feel the spirit of the original story but it’ll be re-invigorated and vital.”

The project is being produced by Juan de Dios Larraín, who also produced the original. He’s joined by his brother, “Jackie” director Pablo Larraín.

In a statement, Juan de Dios Larraín suggested that women over the the age of 50 lead much richer lives than the media would suggest. “This film tells a fascinating story from one of those thousands of women who try to be happy in their 50s, where an apparently boring life can be fascinating, erotic, fun, and complex,” he said. While THR doesn’t specify a director, Juan de Dios Larraín seemed to indicate that Lelio, who is writing the script, will also reprise his directing duties. The producer commented, “Julianne Moore can’t be better for the role, with Sebastian in the directing.”

FilmNation Entertainment will launch international sales on the project at the Cannes market, which kicks off May 17.

Moore won an Oscar in 2015 for portraying a linguistics professors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in “Still Alice.” She previously received nominations for “Far from Heaven,” “The Hours,” “The End of the Affair,” and “Boogie Nights.”
