Meryl Streep Will Rock Out in Diablo Cody's 'Ricki and the Flash'

1 April 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

TriStar Productions today announced an all-star band of film talent will collaborate on Ricki and the Flash. Produced by Marc Platt and Mason Novick, the film unites Oscar winners Diablo Cody, who wrote the original screenplay, director Jonathan Demme, and Meryl Streep, who will star in the title role.

Ricki and the Flash is the funny and touching story of a rock n' roll-loving woman who chased her tattered dream at the price of her family, but gets a last chance to, perhaps, make things right. Streep, the most Oscar-nominated actor in history, is well known for her singing prowess on stage and screen (Mamma Mia!, Into the Woods), but Ricki is a new gig even for the musically gifted star: a guitar-wielding, hard rockin' mamma by night and grocery store checkout lady by day.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman review: timey-wimey doggy-waggy

28 February 2014 11:23 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Wonderfully, sweetly geeky, and full of charm, authentic humor, and the sort of goofy yet intriguing adventures that inspire kiddie curiosity in history and art and science. I’m “biast” (pro): love time-travel stories…

I’m “biast” (con): …but they’re often terrible

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

He’s the other bowtie wearing time traveler, but he predates even the original 1960s incarnation of Doctor Who. Mr. Peabody and his son, Sherman, first appeared in the late 1950s in segments on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and in what one can only imagine is Hollywood desperation to find some previously unmined existing material –for the built-in name recognition, doncha know — they have finally gotten their own feature-length cartoon.

Fortunately for us, no one involved took the easy, lazy, way out of assuming that that built-in name recognition was enough, and they made us a movie that is wonderfully, »

The Art of Storytelling– Jill Soloway gets “Transparent” for Amazon Studios

28 February 2014 11:03 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Prior to the release of her Amazon Original pilot, Transparent, we asked creator Jill Soloway a few questions on the art of storytelling, her inspirations and the future of her new show. Read the article below.

Writer/Director/Producer Jill Soloway has always considered herself a “storyteller first and a filmmaker by necessity”.  As a child, she and her sister created and performed plays for anyone that they could get to watch.  This evolved into a drive to write and direct films and TV and to tell longer and better kinds of stories.  Her career has been a successful one, serving as a writer and producer for series such as United States of Tara and Six Feet Under - for which she was nominated for 3 primetime Emmy Awards and a WGA award.  She also took home the Best Director prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for her feature film Afternoon Delight »

26 February 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Viola Davis has joined the Shonda Rhimes–produced pilot How to Get Away With Murder, where she'll play a "brilliant, mysterious criminal defense professor," according to the show's breakdown.

Davis was on six episodes of United States of Tara in 2010 and was on the short-lived Traveler in 2007, but this is her first major TV role in a long time. »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Afternoon Delight,' 'Darkman,' 'Fantastic Mr. Fox'

18 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Afternoon Delight"

What's It About? Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) is a frustrated stay-at-home who's enjoying a naughty night out at the strip club with her husband (Josh Radnor). After Rachel gets a lap dance from the beautiful young McKenna (Juno Temple), she becomes fascinated with McKenna and tries to forge a friendship. Rachel invites McKenna to live with her and her husband and act as a live-in babysitter for their young son. What starts as an afternoon delight becomes much more complicated.

Why We're In: Hahn is usually very, very funny, but here she's given the chance to show off her dramatic, dysfunctional chops. Plus, it's by writer/director Jill Soloway, who worked on "United States of Tara" and "Six Feet Under."

Talking to Jill Soloway About Her Wonderful Amazon Pilot, Transparent

13 February 2014 1:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jill Soloway cut her teeth on the late great Six Feet Under, where she started out as a writer and rose to co-executive producer. After that came executive producing roles on United States of Tara and How to Make It in America, and then a breakout Sundance hit with Afternoon Delight, which Soloway wrote and directed. Now she has a new pilot at Amazon called Transparent, about divorced parents, their adult children, and everyone's need to figure out who they are and how they relate to each other. The pilot is pretty damn wonderful. You can watch it here, which you should before reading this interview, since it contains spoilers from the episode.So where did this show come from? In some ways, I was thinking of a version of this show all the way back on Six Feet Under. That had this beautiful magnetism of a family around the »

I'm Still Not Over... 'United States of Tara' getting canceled

10 February 2014 3:04 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Some shows stay on the air for so long, there’s seemingly no end in sight (Grey’s Anatomy, I’m looking at you), and others, like United States of Tara, leave us far too soon. The Showtime dramedy focused on a woman with dissociative identity disorder (what you may know as multiple personality disorder) and how she and her family deal with her many alters. And after three seasons on the air, it was canceled.

Mental illness isn’t something usually depicted on television in a realistic, humanizing way, if it’s even depicted at all. But United States of Tara »
