Oscar Political Moments: A Timeline of the Memorable Sacrifices, Protests, and Speeches Throughout The Telecast’s History

26 February 2017 8:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmakers and stars have often taken a political stance by choosing which projects to make. But when the Academy Awards ceremony began in 1929 to honor the best in film, this created a more public way to demonstrate opinions about the state of the world, the government or a cause.

Not everyone has taken this opportunity though, except for maybe wearing the odd ribbon to support awareness or using their attendance (or lack thereof) to show solidarity. Those blessed by winning a coveted statuette, however, can use their actual acceptance speech as a platform to speak out. Although the awards started being televised in 1953, it took until the 1970s until winners began to really take advantage of having a massive audience for their views. And at times, even the Academy itself got political. »

‘When We Rise’ Ep Dustin Lance Black: ‘This Is Going to Be More Timely Than I Thought’

24 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“From the beginning I said it should be ‘When We Rise,’ the we being the biggest part of it,” says writer/producer/director Dustin Lance Black, of naming the eight-hour, four-part miniseries that premieres on February 27 on ABC.

A few feet away, director Dee Rees (“Bessie”) sets up a scene outside the storefront that once housed activist Harvey Milk’s campaign office for City Supervisor (it’s now fittingly a space occupied by the Human Rights Campaign). In the scene, a young Cleve Jones (Austin P. McKenzie) runs out to Castro Street to talk with soon-to-be disco star Sylvester (Justin Sams), who he has become friends with. The real Cleve Jones, an activist still living in San Francisco and consultant on the project, stands off to the side and watches the moment from his own life as its recreated for the cameras.

Hollywood's Next Big Thing: 'When We Rise' Transgender Star Ivory Aquino Fights to "Share My Story"

24 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When We Rise. "With how powerful the show is and its message of being united amidst diversity, I felt like it was important to share my story," says the Filipina actress, who makes her TV debut in Milk scribe Dustin Lance Black and director Gus Van Sant's ABC event series as real-life trans activist Cecilia Chung alongside Guy Pearce and Mary-Louise Parker.

Up until now, the theater actress, who came to the U.S. at age 18 and transitioned in her mid-20s, »

‘When We Rise’ Review: Why Dustin Lance Black, Gus Van Sant, and Dee Rees’ Miniseries Should Have Been a Movie

23 February 2017 9:17 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

An onslaught of onscreen and offscreen talent unite with a clear sense of purpose in the limited series “When We Rise.” An examination of gay and women’s rights over three decades and how their causes conflict and coalesce, Dustin Lance Black’s new ABC offering emphasizes what’s possible when oppressed minorities come together and fight back against a malicious patriarchy.

There’s no shortage of modern parallels at play, and ABC is counting on the public’s revived passion for protest to drive interest in a show that honors those who paved the way with picket signs and (mostly) passive resistance. The eight-episode series written by Black (mostly) does right by its honorable cause, but it suffers from the strictures of its format. A sprawling story creates an awkward combination of history lessons and personal stories, and broadcast standards prove far too restrictive. The result is a conglomeration »

‘When We Rise’ Review: ABC’s Ambitious Lgbtq Rights Miniseries Too Dense

22 February 2017 5:58 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Debuting on February 27 and running for most of next week, ABC's miniseries When We Rise is an ambitious and ultimately too dense effort that seemingly forgot that less is often more. Still, as I also say in my video review above, the fact that a miniseries like this from Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black is on a broadcast network night after night next week is a great thing. Sadly, in some ways, even more so right now in the America of 2017, where safe… »

New VFX video breaks down Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s epic space battle

22 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you a VFX reel looking at the digital recreation of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we’ve got another video, this time breaking down Ilm’s work on the spectacular space battle above Scarif. Take a look here…

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

When We Rise Review: ABC's Gay-Rights Mini Is a Tedious History Lesson

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The struggle for gay rights in America is absolutely a piece of history we should all learn. It’s too bad, then, that ABC’s bloated, self-serious miniseries When We Rise (debuting Monday, Feb. 27 at 9/8c) is such a slog to get through.

Spanning more than four decades of the gay-rights movement in four two-hour installments, When We Rise fictionalizes the stories of three real-life activists — free-spirited rebel Cleve, brainy feminist Roma and former Navy sailor Ken — as they fight for acceptance, from San Francisco’s Castro district in the ’70s to the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage »

TV Review: ABC’s ‘When We Rise’

20 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The mere existence of “When We Rise” is almost virtue enough. But in terms of tone and execution, the four-part event series from ABC is wildly uneven, crossing from moving stories of romance under oppression to retellings of history that are so broadly pitched — and with such bad wigs! — that they’re too after-school special to be truly affecting. Still, the fact that an eight-hour educational reconstruction of the gay rights movement is taking up primetime real estate on a broadcast network is evidence of a revolution — a still-unfolding one, to be sure, but one that has transformed the social fabric of this nation. In just 50 years, America has gone from a land where homosexuality was an illness treated by psychologists with lobotomies and electroshock treatment to one where gay marriage is the law of the land.

When We Rise” is an attempt to explain how that happened, from 1972 to 2013. Eight hours is not much time to »

From Sean Connery to Harrison Ford: actors who secretly played roles gay

2 February 2017 9:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The sexual orientation of film characters isn’t always what it first seems – some leading men have reinterpreted their parts as they move from page to screen

Gus van Sant’s feel-good drama Finding Forrester, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this month, has been forgotten with good reason. It recycles from his earlier film Good Will Hunting the story of a wayward teenage genius nurtured by an older mentor, only this time the boy’s talents are literary, not mathematical. But it does have some curiosity value thanks to its title character.

The reclusive novelist William Forrester, played by Sean Connery, has a secret that is never mentioned on screen. I discovered it by accident when I met Van Sant in 2008 while he was editing Milk, his film about the openly gay politician Harvey Milk. It was odd, I suggested, that despite being out himself, Van Sant hadn’t »
