2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Brady Corbet’s The Childhood of a Leader

23 November 2015 1:15 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

If included, it would count as one of the rare Venice preemed North American premiere debuts and uncommon 35mm treats at the fest. After doubling up at the Venice Film Festival with the Luigi de Laurentiis” award for a Debut Film and the Best Director Horizons award, The Childhood of a Leader‘s Brady Corbet recently picked up another Best Director award at the Lisbon & Estoril Film Fest. A regular figure at the festival as an actor in both short and features from Gregg Araki’s Mysterious Skin era up until Antonio CamposSimon Killer, Corbet also had his short debut (2009’s Protect You + Me.) and writing credits on Mona Fastvold’s The Sleepwalker (2014) and last year’s short Rabbit from Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre all premiere at the festival. The available acquisitions title has had its share of extremely convinced supporters and even the detractors acknowledge the genius in Corbet’s debut oeuvre. »

Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Bares All in His ‘Mysterious Skin’ Audition

9 October 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career may span all the way back to the early ‘90s—he starred in “Angels in the Outfield” in 1994 then went on to be a fan-favorite scene stealer on “3rd Rock From the Sun”—but it took a series of critically acclaimed turns in little-known indies to transition from child star to one of today’s most bankable leading men. He stars next in "The Walk," in theaters October 9. Look no further than his no-holds-barred performance in Gregg Araki’s 2004 indie, “Mysterious Skin.” The 23-year-old Gordon-Levitt plays Neil, a gay male hustler, son of a single mother, and a victim of sexual abuse. The role required him to bare more than just skin, and it’s clear even from this audition tape that he captures the nuances of a troubled teen that’s as cocksure as he is damaged. Want to see more?

White Bird in a Blizzard review: Shailene Woodley spreads her wings

6 March 2015 4:05 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Gregg Araki; Screenwriter: Gregg Araki; Starring: Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane; Running time: 91 mins; Certificate: 15

Shailene Woodley's star continues to rise on a sharp upward trajectory thanks to The Descendants and the Divergent/Insurgent franchise and it may be because she seems wise beyond her years, bringing with her a kind of soulful ennui with the world. Casting her in this adaptation of Scott Heim's novel is also a clever move by writer/director Greg Araki, but the film is ill-judged in various other aspects.

Araki is particularly fascinated by extreme growing pains, with credits including The Doom Generation (1995) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt drama Mysterious Skin (2004) and at the heart of this story is the tragedy of abandonment. Kat Connors (Woodley) is just getting to grips with her changing body – and the boy next door Phil (Shiloh Fernandez) is »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #35. Brady Corbet’s The Childhood of a Leader

8 January 2015 7:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Childhood of a Leader

Director: Brady Corbet // Writers: Brady Corbet, Mona Fastvold

Working with the likes of Bonello, Östlund, Assayas, Hansen-Løve and Baumbach, when you count the 2014 festival release year alone, actor Brady Corbet (Mysterious SkinFunny Games U.S.; Simon Killer) has built quite the impressive resume working with the auteur set. While The Childhood of a Leader is his feature length directing debut, this counts as back to back years working in the filmmaker capacity when you take into account his writing creds in Mona Fastvold’s overlooked ’14 title, The Sleepwalker, and the soon to be premiered Sundance short Rabbit, by filmmaker Laure De Clermont-Tonnerre. Initially announced as starring Juliette Binoche (Corbet’s co-star from Clouds of Sils Maria), she was later replaced by Berenice Bejo. It goes without saying that most of the attention will be placed on Robert Pattinson, continuing his tour of difficult, auteur driven and inspired cinematic projects, »
