‘Outside In’ Review: Edie Falco and Jay Duplass Find Forbidden Love in Lynn Shelton’s Tender Drama — Tiff

16 September 2017 3:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lynn Shelton is the rare American filmmaker to oscillate between contemplative dramas (“We Go Way Back,” “Touchy Feely”) and playful situational comedies (“Humpday,” “Your Sister’s Sister”). As such, her filmmaking voice — discounting the prolific TV direction of the last few years — extends across multiple genres and doesn’t really fit into any of them.

Her latest, “Outside In” is another somber, low-key drama, but its premise could just as easily work as cringe comedy. Both modes operate in service of minimalist character studies about people desperate for companionship, who hover on the verge of bad decisions in their attempts to set things right. Shelton’s work is understated, but elevates seemingly forgettable scenarios with a wise, humane approach that makes even a lesser work like “Outside In” a cut above the market standard.

From ‘Girls’ to ‘Glow’: Casting Director Jennifer Euston on the Importance of ‘Authenticity’

3 August 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Casting director Jennifer Euston is responsible for finding the faces for some of the most unique ensemble casts on television. From “Girls” to “Orange is the New Black” to “Glow,” the multi-Emmy award winner has one specific goal: to populate the TV landscape with reflections of what she sees on the streets and stages of New York. 

“All I want to do is tell it as it is. That’s the bottom line. I just want to be as authentic as possible in everything I do,” Euston says.

Here, Euston tells Variety how she translated her childhood hobby of studying film and television into a successful career, the importance of apprenticeship in her line of work, and how she almost turned down the job that got her her first solo Emmy.

How did you get into casting?

16 June 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Diane Kruger has joined Steve Carell in the untitled Robert Zemeckis movie, based on Jeff Malmberg’s 2010 documentary “Marwencol.”

The project, set up two years ago at Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers, centers on a man who recovers from an assault by building a miniature World War II-era village in his backyard. The documentary won awards from the Boston Society of Film Critics and SXSW. Carell came on to the project in April.

Zemeckis is directing and producing from a screenplay he wrote with Caroline Thompson. Steve Starkey and Jack Rapke of Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers banner also produce, alongside Cherylanne Martin (“The Pacific,” “Flight”). Malmberg is executive producing with Jackie Levine. Maradith Frenkel and Chloe Yellin will oversee the project on behalf of Universal.

Kruger has been cast in the role of Deja Thoris, the Belgian Witch of Marwencol in the world of the backyard village. Variety reported last month that Leslie Mann »

Buster's Mal Heart Review: A Dark And Surreal Psychological Journey

9 May 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Each of us possesses a breaking point, an invisible threshold or limit to the amount of pain or anger or stress we can endure. No one really knows how they'll respond upon piercing this barrier until the moment it occurs. It's a line that no one should willingly cross, because how we act under such tremendous duress could cost our freedom, our sanity, or even our life -- or the life of another. For most people, the challenge of reaching their personal breaking point is recognizing the signs and avoiding the triggers. Unfortunately, sometimes life just deals you a series of slow, repeated blows that compounds until you're pushed over the edge (probably before you even realize it's happened).

Buster's Mal Heart, written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith, is a strange, independent film that's invested in exploring one man's breaking point. It's a psychological examination conducted from multiple angles: before, »

Steven Spielberg Does What He Wants: 6 Things Every Fan Must Know About Hollywood’s Biggest Director

31 March 2017 11:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

We all know that Steven Spielberg floats at the top of the Hollywood food chain. He’s Hollywood’s most reliable director brand, and can get movies made that would never get a greenlight anywhere else — like Oscar-winning historical drama “Lincoln.” His next move? A high-profile Pentagon Papers film rumored to star Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep that Variety reports will open on December 22, and will inevitably be an Oscar contender.

How does he keep his enviable status, even at age 70?

1. Steven does what Steven wants.

Spielberg is a moving target, even for those at Amblin Entertainment who work closely with him every day. While he’s worth some $3 billion and likes to make money, his directing choices are driven by a complicated set of variables. He seeks to avoid any risk of failure. It all depends on where his confidence — and artistic drive — takes him. Is he ready to »
