10 Best Films of 2016: IndieWire Awards Editor Anne Thompson Gives Her Picks

8 December 2016 1:02 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Most film critics who post annual 10 Best lists follow simple rules, and I am no exception — include a few likely Oscar contenders, a few popular hits, and at least one arcane title from the wild blue yonder, either foreign or up-and-coming indie, presented in short readable blurbs. (No photo gallery here.)

And yes, while I keep to a pure Top 10, I do cheat a bit with some extra categories below. So shoot me.

1. “The Jungle Book

Jon Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi). Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, »

The film follows Maggie (Greta Gerwig), a vibrant and independent New Yorker, decides to become a single mother with the help of a former college acquaintance (Travis Fimmel), but the initial plan comes up against fate when she meets and falls for “ficto-critical anthropologist” John (Ethan Hawke), whose marriage to Columbia University professor Georgette (Julianne Moore) is falling apart.

Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016 Review – Maggie’s Plan (2016)

18 June 2016 3:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maggie’s Plan, 2016.

Directed by Rebecca Miller

Starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Travis Fimmel, Wallace Shawn and Julianne Mooore.

Synopsis:

Maggie’s plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant Georgette.

If there’s one thing in Hollywood over the past few years that’s a certainty is the tremendous ability for comedy that Greta Gerwig has in abundance. In her last few films, she has been catapulted to the top of the tree with her performances in such brilliant comedies as 2013’s Frances Ha, last year’s Mistress America and her other upcoming role in Todd Solondz’s Weiner-Dog. But for her new film, Maggie’s Plan, she is changing tack slightly with the help of acclaimed filmmaker Rebecca Miller. Different Gerwig, sure, but still classic and magnificent Gerwig. »

Maggie’S Plan – Review

9 June 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Although a plan is at the center of Rebecca Miller’s (The Ballad Of Jack And Rose) new film, the director barely shows her hand as she lets the characters seemingly fall as they may in her new romantic comedy. Now, calling it a rom-com may do it a bit of disservice. This cute and light film is more akin to the work of Woody Allen. So much so that I’d argue that it is actually more of a “Woody Allen film” than anything the bespectacled director has delivered in recent years.

Maggie’S Plan revolves around upper-middle-class white people speaking like academic intellectuals as they try to figure out what they want in love and life, all the while, strolling through the streets of New York City. Does that ring an Allen bell to you? This isn’t the first time actress Greta Gerwig has sauntered into this type of film. »

[Review] Maggie’s Plan

1 June 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There is a moment early on in writer/director Rebecca Miller‘s Maggie’s Plan in which the titular Maggie (Greta Gerwig) and John (Ethan Hawke) trade their respective titles at New York City’s The New School, and proceed to describe what exactly they mean. It’s a scene full of big words and fast talking, most of it sounding a little ridiculous and plenty smug. These characters seem to half-understand how insulated their world is, and we’re meant to laugh both at, and sometimes with, them.

Delightfully silly turns from Julianne Moore (sporting a Nordic accent) and Travis Fimmel (Warcraft) playing up nearly every hipster trope (the man sells artisan pickles, for God’s sake), reinforce the modern-set slapstick comedy Miller is crafting here. The central conflict involves Maggie and John falling in love, breaking up John’s fledging marriage with Georgette (Moore) and complicating Maggie’s »

Camilla Belle Starring With James Franco in Gothic Drama ‘Mad Whale’ (Exclusive)

23 March 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Camilla Belle will star in the historical drama “The Mad Whale” alongside James Franco, Dominic Rains, Summer Phoenix and Nicole Starrett, Variety has learned exclusively.

“The Mad Whale” is a co-production between Franco’s Elysium Bandini Studios and USC’s School of Cinema. The gothic drama is set in the claustrophobic and brutal world of a women’s mental asylum circa the late 1800s where the patients, some of whom are insane, are tasked with staging a play based on Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”

The film is the fourth iteration of the “Franco Feature” that professors Franco and John Watson teach at USC.

This marks the first feature collaboration for Elysium Bandini since Variety broke the news of the philanthropic studio model between Franco and Vince Jolivette’s Rabbit Bandini Productions, and the Art of Elysium.

Elysium Bandini’s existing film slate includes “Forever,” “Yosemite” and “Memoria.” All of »

Trailer for ‘Maggie’s Plan’ Starring Ethan Hawke, Greta Gerwig, and Julianne Moore

25 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After hitting a variety of major film festivals over the last six months or so (including Toronto, Sundance, New York, and Berlin), Maggie’s Plan, the latest feature from Rebecca Miller (The Ballad of Jack and Rose, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee), will arrive this summer. Starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore, Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph, it follows a thirty-something whose plans for motherhood change when she meets a married man.

Screening to mostly agreeable reviews, The Guardian‘s Nigel M. Smith said, “Writer/director Rebecca Miller’s film is tonally the complete opposite of its lead – true to life, it’s unpredictable and a bit of a mess. And that’s what makes Maggie’s Plan such a delight.” The first trailer has now arrived ahead of a May release and one can check it out below, along with the poster.

Greta Gerwig Is The Brains Behind Maggie’s Plan In First Trailer For Rebecca Miller’s Dramedy

24 February 2016 8:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Far too often, comedy-dramas orbit around a story of two (or more) people falling madly in love, revelling the Honeymoon period all the while tackling those emotional teething problems as they arise. But what about the period thereafter? That’s something Rebecca Miller (The Ballad Of Jack And Rose, The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee) will look to tackle in Maggie’s Plan, which places Greta Gerwig in the role of the woman with a devious scheme.

Delicate and sweet despite centering on a relationship gone awry, it’s really the creative pool of talent that Miller has assembled that lends Maggie’s Plan its innate charm. Starring as Maggie’s significant other is Ethan Hawke, a wide-eyed professor who dreams big of becoming an author, but as the story evolves it seems Hawke’s John Harding may not be marriage material after all, leading Gerwig »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Maggie's Plan' Starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, And Julianne Moore

24 February 2016 6:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On paper, a movie about the complications that arise when the marriage between a professor of ficto-critical anthropology and a critical theorist falls apart thanks to an affair doesn't sound breezy or even fun. But in the hands of director Rebecca Miller ("The Ballad Of Jack And Rose," "The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee"), it's sweet, hilarious, and even insightful, and the first trailer for "Maggie's Plan" hits all those notes. Read More: The 30 Most Anticipated Films From 2016 We've Already Seen Starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph, the film follows a young woman whose dalliance with a married professor turns into something much more complicated that she could've predicated, particularly when the feelings of all involved begin to change. Here's the official synopsis:  In Rebecca Miller's witty modern romantic comedy Maggie's Plan, Greta Gerwig portrays Maggie Hardin, a vibrant and practical »

Berlinale ’16: Maggie’s Plan review

15 February 2016 9:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Maggie’s Plan review: A great surprise. A laugh-out-loud affair with a stunning lead from Gerwig and unique turn from Moore.

Maggie’s Plan makes its European debut nearly six months after delighting audiences across the pond at Toronto. The film is written for the screen and directed by the talented Rebecca Miller, the helmer of The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee and The Ballad Of Jack and Rose.

Miller’s first film since 2009, and perhaps her most high-profile, with a glittering cast in Julianne Moore, Greta Gerwig, Bill Hader and many other familiar faces, Maggie’s Plan revolves around Gerwig’s title character of Maggie. Maggie desperately wants a baby, and it seems she’ll do anything to get her wish. She even has an exact date of when she’d like to conceive with the prospective father; sperm doner, and pickle entrepreneur Guy (Travis FimmelVikings, upcoming Warcraft). However, »

Watch: 'Maggie's Plan' Director Rebecca Miller on Finding Herself Through Her Films: "I hide myself in funny places"

1 February 2016 10:50 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I first discovered Rebecca Miller at Sundance 1995 with her remarkable debut, family drama "Angela," and have been tracking her very different films ever since, from "Personal Velocity," an early digital experiment based on her short stories, to "The Ballad of Jack and Rose" starring her husband Daniel Day Lewis, to her most accessible and entertaining movie to date, "Maggie's Plan," which played to raves at the Toronto and New York film fests and hits theaters via Sony Pictures Classics on May 20. Miller explains her idiosyncratic career trajectory, how she writes and puts these movies together, and the pleasure she found shooting this delightful romantic triangle (based on a story by Karen Rinaldi) in New York City with her gifted trio of actors, Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore.  Read More: Sony PIctures Classics Chases Tiff Hit 'Maggie's Plan'  This witty comedy of manners has been compared to the work of. »
