‘Keeping Rosy’ Review

26 June 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Maxine Peake, Blake HarrisonElisa LasowskiChristine Bottomley, Sam Hoare, Shina Shihoko Nagai, Tori Hart | Written by Mike Oughton, Steve Reeves | Directed by Steve Reeves

Independent films have a tough time getting exposure so when one turns up that really impresses you, it makes you want to shout from a mountaintop for people to take the time to see it.  Keeping Rosy is an example of a film that deserves to be noticed, but did you know it is released starting tomorrow, June 27th? I’m sure the answer is no; and that is a real weakness in the film industry in the UK at the moment.  Smaller movies tend to get lost in all the publicity for the “blockbusters.” Films like Keeping Rosy deserve to be seen and to be a success, in my review hopefully I’ll show why.

Charlotte (Peake) is a career driven women with eyes on a promotion. »

Tanya Fear Joins International Cast of London-Set Crime Drama 'Spotless'

25 June 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Brit actress Tanya Fear is a member of the ensemble cast of French pay-tv group Canal Plus' London-set crime drama series "Spotless," with StudioCanal's Tandem Communications producing in association with Rosetta Media. Co-created by British writer/producer Ed McCardie ("Shameless") and American Corinne Marrinan ("C.S.I."), "Spotless" is described as a “dark, sexy one-hour crime drama peppered with black humor.” It tells the story of a troubled man whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother crash lands into his world, and gets both of them fatally involved in organised crime. The brothers are different – Jean is a conservative and successful French immigrant to London; Martin is a visceral and libidinous wanderer; their lives marked forever by a violent killing that took place almost 30 years ago. The series plays out against a backdrop of Jean’s niche Crime Scene Cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption,...

Eiff 2014: Castles In The Sky review

22 June 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Eddie Izzard stars in Castles In The Sky, a film about the invention of radar. Here's our review...

There is a certain timeslot from days gone by, in your local independent cinema, that Castles In The Sky utterly belongs to. The weekend afternoon matinee slot, designed specifically for families, that I remember from my time working in a cinema as the 'Tired Daddy Doesn't Want to Answer His Five Year Old's Innocent Yet Fiendish Questions' slot. Also it rained popcorn. Now this slot mostly consists of variable animated fare put on at 10.15 in the morning by chain cinemas who don't appreciate the sanctity of the lie-in. This is a shame, as Castles In The Sky evokes the nostalgia of films like Memphis Belle, despite being tonally more similar to movies such as the 2005 Lassie picture.

Networks Make Some Quirky Choices on Emmy Ballot

18 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some Emmy  idiosyncrasies were already known — like HBO’s power-move to list “True Detective” as a drama instead of a miniseries, thus sending Showtime’s “Shameless” scurrying to comedy. But the release of the official ballot has added a few more chess moves to the game.

Surprises

Leading Edge: “Hannibal’s” Mads Mikkelsen and “Bates Motel’s” Freddie Highmore are feeling confident enough to crack the lead actor category.

‘Sound’s’ Special: Perhaps feeling the TV movie category is too crowded, “The Sound of Music Live!” goes the way of last year’s “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel” into the Special Class grouping.

Sing for an Egot: Musicians like Prince (“New Girl”) and k.d. lang (“Portlandia”) attempt to get the elusive “E” portion of the Emmy/Grammy/Oscar/Tony superfecta via the guest actor/actress route.

Single-Player System: “The Good Wife” and “Game of Thrones” gods (well, producers) have spoken »

16 May 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

David Threlfall is to star in a new two-part ITV drama.

Code of a Killer will be based on the true story of Alec Jeffreys's discovery of DNA fingerprinting, and its first use by detective David Baker.

It will be centred around Jeffreys's findings and Baker's investigation into catching a double murderer using the new science.

Shameless star Threlfall will play Baker, who led the 1984 investigation into the murders of Leicestershire schoolgirls Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth.

In real life, Baker approached Jeffreys to use his new technique of reading people's DNA fingerprints in order to solve the murders.

Michael Crompton has written the drama, which will be directed by James Strong (Broadchurch).

The series has been developed with input from Sir Alec Jeffreys and former Detective Chief Superintendent David Baker.

Executive Producer Simon Heath said: "Code of a Killer will be a testament to the pioneering science of Alec Jeffreys and how, »
