Natalie Portman Boards ‘Vox Lux’ (Exclusive)

Natalie Portman Boards ‘Vox Lux’ (Exclusive)
Oscar winner Natalie Portman will officially join Jude Law in “Vox Lux,” Variety has learned. In addition, Bold Films, which is backing the project and helped develop the film, has joined forces with Andrew Lauren Productions to finance and produce the picture. “Vox Lux” is written and directed by Brady Corbet, an accomplished actors whose credits include “Mysterious Skin” and “Funny Games. He made his feature film directorial debut in 2015 with “The Childhood of a Leader,” a kind of portrait of a fascist as a very young man that won two awards at the Venice Film Festival.

Rooney Mara had originally been attached to the film and when she dropped out Portman was circling the project. However, her involvement had been in question after producer Bold Films delayed shooting on the project as part of a company-wide restructuring that resulted in staff layoffs. Bold had been bruised by the box office failure of the Jake Gyllenhaal film “Stronger

If You Loved These Films, You Need to Stream ‘The Strange Ones’
“The things inside your head, they’re only as real as you want them to be. If you want, you can just decide they’re not real.” Early on in “The Strange Ones,” Nick (Alex Pettyfer) tells this to his younger travel buddy Sam (James Freedson-Jackson), before seemingly making a coffee mug disappear. On its surface, the film is about two brothers heading out on a camping trip, but it quickly becomes apparent that not everything is as it seems, from the pair’s names to their endgame (to the existence of their coffee mugs). The film’s co-directors, Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein, may be relatively new to audiences (“The Strange Ones” is their feature-length debut; in fact, it’s an expansion upon their own 2011 short, based on real-life true-crime stories), but movie buffs will recognize flashes of their cinematic inspirations throughout. The film may be intentionally vague, but

‘Love, Simon’ Trailer: A Major Hollywood Studio Finally Made a Gay Coming-of-Age Movie

‘Love, Simon’ Trailer: A Major Hollywood Studio Finally Made a Gay Coming-of-Age Movie
It’s very rare for a major Hollywood studio to produce and distribute a coming-of-age story centered around a closeted gay teenager. These kinds of stories are nothing new to independent film (see “Pariah,” “Mysterious Skin,” and more), but major studios have long avoided putting a gay protagonist front and center. 20th Century Fox will finally buck the trend next year with “Love, Simon,” starring Nick Robinson in the lead role.

The film is adapted from Becky Albertalli’s young adult novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.” Robinson plays a closeted high school student who must deal with typical senior year struggles with friends and family all while battling the emotional turmoil of not coming out. Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, and Josh Duhamel co-star.

20th Century Fox will release “Love, Simon” in theaters March 16, 2018. The film is directed by Greg Berlanti,

’13 Reasons Why’ Stars On How Tom McCarthy and Gregg Araki Set the Tone for Netflix’s Gripping Teen Suicide Drama

’13 Reasons Why’ Stars On How Tom McCarthy and Gregg Araki Set the Tone for Netflix’s Gripping Teen Suicide Drama
It sounds like an unenviable task: Make a show about suicide that handles the subject matter sensitively, while also being entertaining. Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” strikes that delicate balance, and according to its young stars Dylan Minnette (“Prisoners”) and Katherine Langford, all credit goes to the powerhouse creative team behind this gripping drama.

Based on Jay Asher’s young adult novel and created by Tony-winning playwright Brian Yorkey (“Next to Normal”), with “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy as executive producer, “13 Reasons Why” tells the story of 16-year-old Hannah Baker (Langford), a vibrant young girl who shocks everyone who knew her when she takes her own life. In lieu of a suicide note, Hannah leaves behind 13 cassette tapes, with each side detailing a reason and person who led her to suicide. As the tapes get passed around to the people named, a shy boy named Clay Jensen (Minnette), who had a crush on Hannah,

SXSW Review — ‘The Strange Ones’ Tells a Masterful and Unforgettable Tale of Innocence Lost

The Strange Ones’ Tells a Masterful and Unforgettable Tale of Innocence LostLauren Wolsktein and Christopher Radcliff’s haunting tone poem goes places few films dare to go.

Perhaps no film at SXSW this year will leave audiences in a darker mental place than The Strange Ones, an expansion of the acclaimed 2011 short of the same name. The striking directorial debut of both Lauren Wolkstein and Christopher Radcliff, previously known for their incredible short films, continues their pattern of taking severe trauma and deconstructing it in deeply complex and cinematic ways. With the subject matter of films like Mysterious Skin and the subdued, nature-heavy craft of recent works like Krisha, the film rises above most indie features of its kind that tackle child abuse and accomplishes something far more sophisticated and sinister.

The film’s titular “strange ones” are young Sam (played to perfection by James Freedson-Jackson, a star in the making who recently won the fest’s

Craig Roberts interview: Red Oaks season 2, directing, British film

Louisa Mellor Nov 11, 2016

As Red Oaks season 2 arrives on Amazon Prime Video, we chatted to lead Craig Roberts about his character, directing and more…

What Netflix’s Stranger Things is to 80s sci-fi horror, Amazon’s Red Oaks is to 80s coming-of-age romantic comedy. Without slipping into parody, both are a continuation of a familiar style of storytelling featuring characters and themes we know and love. If Stranger Things takes its cues from Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter, Red Oaks has made itself the inheritor of John Hughes, Rob Reiner and Amy Heckerling. (In a neat connection, Heckerling has directed multiple episodes of Red Oaks, which also stars Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey, stitching it firmly into that continuity.)

Random Roles: Brady Corbet on Lars Von Trier, TV gigs, and being the American guy in European films

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: He hasn’t quite turned 28 yet, but Brady Corbet has already charted a long and unusually distinguished career as an actor. Before he was even old enough to drive, he’d appeared in acclaimed American indies such as Mysterious Skin and Thirteen, not to mention a number of network television shows. But over the last decade, he’s made a name for himself as the American guy who works with all the top-shelf European auteurs, showing up (sometimes rather unexpectedly) in films by the likes of Michael Haneke, Lars Von Trier, and Olivier Assayas. Corbet’s own directorial debut, the striking The Childhood Of A Leader—a post-World War I psychodrama that he co-wrote with ...

Watch: First Trailer for Brady Corbet's Film 'The Childhood of a Leader'

"Witness the birth of a terrifying ego." The first trailer has debuted for a film called The Childhood of a Leader, which is the feature directing debut of the talented actor Brady Corbet, who has appeared in a number of excellent indie films over the last decade. Loosely inspired by the writings of Jean-Paul Sartre and Margaret MacMillan, the film tells a coming-of-age story of a young French choirboy whose father is a diplomat assisting President Woodrow Wilson in the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Tom Sweet plays the boy, and the cast includes Bérénice Bejo, Liam Cunningham, Stacy Martin, Yolande Moreau and Robert Pattinson. This certainly does look like something we've never seen before. Take a look below. Here's the first official trailer for Brady Corbet's The Childhood of a Leader, direct from YouTube: Independent film mainstay Brady Corbet (Mysterious Skin, Martha Marcy May Marlene) delivers one

First Trailer For Brady Corbet’s ‘The Childhood of a Leader’ With Robert Pattinson, Bérénice Bejo & More

He can be seen in films from Michael Haneke, Lars von Trier, Olivier Assayas, Mia Hansen-Løve, Noah Baumbach, Bertrand Bonello, Ruben Östlund, and more, but Brady Corbet finally got on the other side of the camera for his feature debut, The Childhood of a Leader. With a top-notch cast featuring Bérénice Bejo, Liam Cunningham, Stacy Martin, Yolande Moreau, Robert Pattinson, and Tom Sweet, it’s been mostly quiet regarding the post-wwi drama since its Venice premiere last fall, but now a new trailer has landed along with news it’ll play at BAMcinemaFest next month.

We said in our review, “The feature debut from young actor turned screenwriter-director Brady Corbet, The Childhood of a Leader is an ambitious choice for a first project — a period piece tying together the post-wwi political climate and the upbringing of a child in a chateau outside Paris. The film, premiering in the Orizzonti section of the Venice Film Festival,

The Horizon Award To Recognize Four Women Directors at Sundance 2016

Continuing their support for women directors, Horizon Award co-founding producers Cassian Elwes, Lynette Howell Taylor, and Christine Vachon, announced the winners of the second annual Horizon Award. Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny will bestow up-and-coming filmmakers Macarena Gaona, Juliette Gosselin, Shanice Malakai Johnson, and Florence Pelletier with the Horizon Award at a reception in Park City, Utah, with creative talent, producers, entertainment executives and media in attendance to celebrate these rising women directors and their achievements in independent filmmaking.

The Horizon Award ceremony and reception will take place on Sunday, January 24th, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the WireImage Portrait Studio at Village at the Lift (825 Main Street, Park City), co-hosted by Jeff Vespa.

The Horizon Award is an annual award that seeks to identify and mentor talented, up-and-coming female directors – the primary goal being to support women directors early enough in their development to help them overcome the hurdles in advancing their learning curve and careers.

In addition to the Horizon Award, the four winners will receive grants from the Adrienne Shelly Foundation. The Foundation supports the artistic achievements of female filmmakers through a series of grants that reflect Adrienne Shelly’s dedication to the art of filmmaking and her own successful transition from actress to filmmaker.

This year’s winners are:

Horizon Award First Place

Juliette Gosselin (University of Quebec in Montreal) & Florence Pelletier (Concordia University, Montreal)

Co-directors of "Mes Anges à Tête Noire"

Horizon Award Runners-Up

Macarena (Macqui) Gaona (New York University) Director of "Channel 999 and Channel 1000"

Shanice Malakai Johnson (Scottsdale Community College) Director of "End to the Suffering"

On making the announcement, Cassian Elwes said: “I’m so excited to announce the winners of the second annual Horizon Award. This year’s overwhelming number of submissions and caliber of work made it very hard indeed to pick just one winner – the jury identified one grand prize winner, and two runners-up. Additionally, we have added new partners to our already formidable team – proving that not only is the move towards gender equality in the zeitgeist, but that there are very real advocates amongst our peers. After the recent summit for systemic change (hosted by Sundance and Women in Film), I am more convinced than ever that we can make a difference and that history is on our side. I remain steadfastly committed to the idea that, one day soon, women will have exactly the same opportunities as men to direct movies.”

Franklin Leonard, Founder and CEO of The Black List and one of the award’s original advocates added: “We are passionate supporters of this award that recognizes fresh voices and perspectives in storytelling. This effort mirrors our own effort – the Black List's 500 Feminist Films project, created by our Director of Community, Kate Hagen. We look forward to mentoring the winners in the year to come.”

The jury was comprised of 38 influential directors, producers, and executives from the filmmaking community who viewed 483 short film submissions from over 200 colleges and universities world-wide, including the U.S., Canada, England, Australia, India, China, South Africa, Scotland, France, Mexico, Portugal, Columbia, Brazil, Russia, Serbia, the Ukraine, and more. This year, submissions increased by over one hundred from last year, with additional countries and universities participating. Submissions were received from Nyu, USC, UCLA, Chapman, Emerson, Penn State, Loyola Marymount, University of Wisconsin, University of Washington, Syracuse, Tcu, Ryerson (Toronto), Oxford, University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, University of Delhi, and more.

Now in its second year, the Horizon Award provides an all-expense-paid trip for the winning female college students to the Sundance Film Festival, where they will have the opportunity to present their films to some of the industry’s most influential names. The winners receive mentorship, festival access, and important introductions by Elwes, Howell, and Vachon to agents, producers, executives, festival staff, and other influencers throughout the Sundance Film Festival.

The Horizon Award was founded by producer, Cassian Elwes ("Margin Call," "All is Lost," "Dallas Buyers Club"), and Michelle Satter, Founding Director, Sundance Institute’s Feature Film Program, in response to a Sundance Institute and Women In Film Los Angeles study that revealed that only 4.2% of the top 100 films each year from 2002-2013 were directed by women. Elwes partnered with Howell ("Captain Fantastic," "Mississippi Grind," "Big Eyes," "The Place Beyond the Pines:), and Vachon ( "Goat," "Carol," "Boys Don’t Cry," "One Hour Photo," "Far From Heaven"), to create the award as an opportunity for young female directors to have mentorship and networking opportunities in conjunction with Sundance, the home of American Independent film.

You can see links for more info on the study:

Phase I and II

Phase III

Sponsors and Partners for the 2016 Horizon Award are: The Black List, CreativeFuture, The Creative Mind Group, Done To Your Taste Catering, FilmLA, Indiegogo, Mprm Communications, the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, Sundance Institute, Twitter, Verge, Vimeo, WireImage, Adina Design, and Women in Film. This impressive group has come together to support an award that they hope will continue to identify, nurture, and launch the careers of future female directors for years to come.

3rd Rock Turns 20: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Then and Now

3rd Rock Turns 20: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Then and Now
Twenty years ago this week, an oddball NBC sitcom introduced viewers to a family of space aliens who, in the grand tradition of Alf, Mork and Mindy and My Favorite Martian, were attempting to hide out on Earth. It was a silly premise, but 3rd Rock from the Sun ended up outlasting those other three shows, running a full six seasons. And we can credit its success to a talented comedic cast that included John Lithgow, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was only 14 when the show premiered.

Movie Review: The Walk

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come to embody the everyman for modern audiences. As the hopeless romantic in (500) Days of Summer (2009), the cancer patient in 50/50 (2011), or the naïve cop in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), his subtle charm and likable demeanor have fallen in line with the iconic average Joes of yesteryear. In the past decade alone, he’s gone from child star to indie A-lister (Brick [2005]) to big budget B-player (Inception [2010]), raking in critical acclaim and a rabid fan base of followers. But barring a few indie turns (Mysterious Skin [2004], Looper [2012]), the actor had yet to break out of his nice guy box and grab mainstream cinema by the throat. That is, until now. Inhabiting high wire walker Philippe Petit, The Walk presents viewers with Gordon-Levitt: the charismatic outsider and spark plug showman. Baptism under wire, if you will.

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

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

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

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

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 Skin; Funny 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,
