Anton Yelchin Wraps Filming on Jarmusch-Produced Drama 'Porto Mon Amour'
Anton Yelchin, Lucie Lucas star in Portugal-set drama executive produced by Jim Jarmusch Bando à Parte and Double Play Films have announced that principal photography has wrapped on director Gabe Klinger's provisionally titled "Porto Mon Amour," a narrative drama set in Portugal starring Anton Yelchin and Lucie Lucas. Jim Jarmusch executive-produced this experimental narrative focused on a romantic encounter between a young woman (Lucas) and man (Yelchin), shot in Super 8mm, 16mm and 35mm film stock. Set mainly in the northerly Portuguese city of Porto -- hence the title's echoes of "Hiroshima Mon Amour" -- this is Klinger's feature debut following Venice-winning doc "Double Play: James Benning and Richard Linklater" from 2013. Klinger co-wrote the screenplay with "We Don't Live Here Anymore" scribe Larry Gross, while producing alongside Rodrigo Areias, Patrick Cunningham ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") and Jon Karas. In France,...

Monthly Must See: John Curran's 'Tracks' Starring Mia Wasikowska

"Like any journey, it's not what you carry, but what you leave behind." Continuing our latest feature, the Monthly Must See profile, this time around I'm highlighting an extraordinarily beautiful film called Tracks, set in Australia directed by John Curran of We Don't Live Here Anymore and The Painted Veil previously. Tracks is now playing in limited theaters and first premiered at the fall film festivals in 2013, where I first caught it. Actress Mia Wasikowska stars as Robyn in the true story of an independent young woman who decides to hike 1,700 miles across the Australian desert on her own. Aside from her dog and three camels. Tracks is a very dream-like experience, filled with never-ending, gorgeous landscape cinematography from Mandy Walker complimented by a remarkably beautiful score by Garth Stevenson (I really, really love this score - currently listening to it while writing this up). I first saw the film

Tracks

Tracks
Tracks sounds like a slog, the true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) as she treks 1,700 miles across the Australian desert with four capricious camels and a black dog named Diggity. The journey, which spawned an article for National Geographic and a global bestseller, begins in April 1977 and lasts for nine arduous months. But hold on. The movie, which lasts a scant 112 minutes, is no mission for masochists. Tracks is an exhilarating adventure that opens up an unknown world to most of us and does it so well that we feel we're living it too.

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Watch the First Trailer for 'Tracks' Starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver

The Weinstein Co. has premiered the first trailer for Tracks, an Outback-set adventure drama starring Mia Wasikowska as a young woman on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog. Adam Driver co-stars as National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who documented her travels. The film was directed by John Curran, whose only films I've seen are Stone and We Don't Live Here Anymore, neither of which I remember as overly compelling, but I've heard plenty of good things about The Painted Veil. Thing is, Curran's work doesn't really have a heartbeat that matches up to mine so I'm not too sure this one is going to appeal to me. The Weinsteins have yet to announce a release date.

Watch: Full Us Trailer for the Wonderful 'Tracks' with Mia Wasikowska

"When people ask why I'm doing it, my usual answer is: why not." The Weinstein Company has unveiled their full theatrical Us trailer for the film Tracks, from director John Curran (The Painted Veil), starring Mia Wasikowska as explorer Robyn Davidson, who hiked her way solo across the Australian Outback. It's a wonderful, extraordinary, beautiful adventure about the incredible journey of one woman, and it's a compelling and inspiring film to boot. Adam Driver co-stars, but it's mostly all Wasikowska and her dogs and camels. The trailer features M83's "Outro" and is basically a recut of the first international trailer from last year, but I'm still happy to highlight this film. In my Tiff review I called it a "beautiful, beautiful film." Here's the latest theatrical trailer for John Curran's Tracks, originally from Yahoo: Starring Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) and Adam Driver ("Girls", Frances Ha, Inside Llewyn Davis

Watch: Mia Wasikowska Schleps Through the Outback in New Trailer for 'Tracks'
The latest trailer for director John Curran's "Tracks," about a young woman's treacherous journey across the wilds of the West Australian desert and starring the sublime Mia Wasikowska, has landed. Release date via distributor The Weinstein Company forthcoming. A hit at Venice and Telluride, this is Curran's first film since the tepid thriller "Stone" (2010). Before that, he directed the lush weepie "The Painted Veil" (2006) and the elegant adultery drama "We Don't Live Here Anymore" (2004). Written by Marion Nelson from Robyn Davidson's autobiographical book, "Tracks" costars Adam Driver (eep!). Julia Roberts was originally circling the role of Davidson, 27 at the time of the film's events, until Wasikowska nabbed it.  Here's our Venice review of the film. Trailer below via Yahoo! Movies. It's a tad overdramatic, given the triumphant indie soundtrack, but see for yourself.

Inspiring Trailer for Mia Wasikowska's Tracks

Mia Wasikowska is a fantastic young actress that has a long successful acting career ahead of her. She's been in films such as Jane Eyre, Stoker, Alice in Wonderland, Lawless, and several more. She was amazing in all of those, and now she's basically going to carry a whole film on her shoulders with Tracks, which is based on an inspiring true story. This looks like a beautifully shot film, and I'll be checking it out when it is released. 

The movie also stars Adam Driver (HBO's Girls), and it comes from director John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don't Live Here Anymore). Here's a detailed synopsis of the story,

Tracks is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn's phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse 2700km of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only

'Tracks' Trailer: Mia Wasikowska Faces Snakes, Loneliness in Australian Outback (Video)

  • Moviefone
"When people ask me why I'm doing it, my usual answer is, 'Why not?'"

That's the explanation that Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) gives in this new trailer for "Tracks" for deciding to trek 2,000 miles from the middle of the Australian Outback to the Indian Ocean. The film is based on a true story, making Davidson's decision all the more remarkable, and director John Curran ("We Don't Live Here Anymore," "The Painted Veil") spares no detail in bringing her inspiring journey to life against the gorgeous landscape.

Davidson has detractors at every turn -- "Your plan is ridiculous," one tells her -- including Adam Driver, who plays a National Geographic photographer documenting her walk.

"You want to die out there or something?" an incredulous Driver asks.

But of course, Davidson's journey is about more than the destination, and along with snakes and sunburns, she finds herself. The movie received raves

8 Writing Tips From Screenwriting Masters Larry Gross, Naomi Foner, Henry Bean and Andrea Arnold
Veteran award-winning screenwriters Henry Bean ("The Believer"), Larry Gross ("We Don't Live Here Anymore") and Naomi Foner ("Very Good Girls") talked about their craft and tricks of the trade, along with Filmmaker in Residence Andrea Arnold ("Fishtank") yesterday at the Story Creation and the Artistic Process panel as part of the Nyff Live free-to-the-public series of filmmaker conversations. Arnold is currently in New York as the 2013 "Filmmaker in Residence" for the 51st New York Film Festival. The project she is working on, which she described as a "road movie," is set in the U.S. so she felt the "filmmaker in residence" gig was just what she needed to finish it. "I've already written a draft and I'm really self-critical with my writing and I've been holding it close to me for quite a long time. When this residence thing came up, I thought 'oh my God, that's just what

Naomi Watts 'Loved the Challenge' of 'Diana'

Naomi Watts 'Loved the Challenge' of 'Diana'
Naomi Watts is already getting positive reviews for capturing the look and spirit of the late Princess Diana in photos and snippets released ahead of her new movie Diana, due out September 20. Now she's opening up about what persuaded her to take the role and she reveals the challenges of portraying such an iconic figure.

In an interview conducted by her longtime friend and We Don't Live Here Anymore costar, Laura Dern, Watts tells Hamptons magazine she knew she'd face close scrutiny for the role. "So many people are going to pounce on me for not looking enough like her, not being tall enough, not being properly British -- and I am actually properly British," she said. "I'm also Australian, but all of those negative comments were sort of floating around in the back of my head and really stifling me about whether or not I should do this..."

Turbulent Souls to be written by Larry Gross

Larry Gross will write Turbulent Souls adapted from Stephen J. Dubner's memoir. The Group Entertainment's production is based on the 1998 book originally called Turbulent Souls, now being titled as Choosing My Religion. In the memoir, Dubner, who is the co-writer of Freakonomics, recounts the time he learned of his family's Jewish roots after being raised as a Catholic. After embracing his past, this led to a split with his mother which had the archbishop of New York involved in order to resolve the issue. Gross wrote the script for 48 Hours, True Crime and We Don't Live Here Anymore.

David Thomson on Naomi Watts

If Naomi Watts had only done Mulholland Drive she would be secure in movie history. She deserves a lot of camera time

Who ever heard a bad word about Naomi Watts? And don't expect to read one here. Still, her latest film, Fair Game, where she plays the outed CIA agent Valerie Plame, with Sean Penn as her husband, made too little impression on all of us who like her. It seemed promising: attractive married people plus international intrigue, along with the suspicion of there being more to the case than we ever heard. Directed by Doug Liman, the movie turns out rather dull. Is playing opposite Sean Penn anti-chemical (this was the third time Watts had tried)? Or did the drama need to be shifted towards comedy? Being married to a "spy" may play best as a version of "Can you trust your wife?"

But if the Anglo-Australian Watts
