Emma Thompson Defends New Flick

2 September 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has stepped up to defend her latest film - after critics booed and walked out of its screening at the Venice Film Festival. Emma stars alongside hunky Antonio Banderas in Imagining Argentina, which combines supernatural elements while set during the country's brutal military dictatorship. The 44-year-old says, "I think there was always going to be a great deal of different kinds of responses. "When you're dealing with a subject that is so tricky, such as state-sponsored torture, and mixing it with magical realism, you're stepping a fine line." Director Christopher Hampton says, "Whatever people think about the film, people need to talk about this issue. "This is a wound, and if you deal with an open wound, people are going to react in a very tender fashion, so it's not surprising." »

Venice festival goes easy on Hollywood fare

1 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Star wattage is set to dazzle at this year's Venice International Film Festival as event director Moritz de Hadeln on Thursday unveiled a lineup that includes several major Hollywood pictures. But this year's competition roll call for the grande dame of international festivals is light on American titles, with only two of the 20 entries coming from the United States. "Unfortunately, American films are mostly showing out of competition," said de Hadeln, who is in his second year of directing the festival. "Often, they don't want to risk it because they fear they might not win first place." One U.S. title battling it out for the festival's Golden Lion prize is Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's 21 Grams, starring Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Naomi Watts. The Focus Features film details the story of a critically ill mathematician, a grieving mother and a born-again ex-con. Los Angeles- and London-based Myriad Pictures' Imagining Argentina, directed by Christopher Hampton and starring Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson, will also brave the competition. »
