28 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mixing high-profile star power with offbeat titles, the 41st Telluride Film Festival is offering an impressive glimpse at an array of awards contenders over Labor Day weekend.

The four-day fest, which starts Friday with a tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” includes the first showings of Reese Witherspoon’s “Wild,” Benedict Cumberbatch’s “The Imitation Game,” Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater” and Mia Wasikowska’s “Madame Bovary” — the 10th film adaptation of the French novel.

Sex And Lies In Eerie Trailer For White Bird In A Blizzard, Starrng Shailene Woodley And Eva Green

22 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From The Descendants to The Fault in Our Stars, Shailene Woodley has cemented herself as one of the buzziest young actresses working in Hollywood today, but she’ll soon be shrugging off her rabid teen fanbase to take on her darkest role yet, in Gregg Araki’s enigmatic White Bird in a Blizzard. Woodley stars as a seventeen-year-old girl whose sexual awakening arrives around the same time that her mysterious mother (Eva Green) disappears into thin air.

An eerie, enticing new trailer for the movie, which co-stars Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe and Shiloh Fernandez, has landed online, revealing more of the film’s aloof, almost dreamlike tone (but what were you expecting from the director of Mysterious Skin?).

White Bird in a Blizzard made quite a splash when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and thanks to Magnolia Pictures, general audiences will finally get a chance »

Shailene Woodley Stars in 'White Bird in a Blizzard' Trailer

21 August 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After scoring an Oscar nomination for The Descendants in 2012 and starring in the blockbuster adaptation Divergent earlier this year, Shailene Woodley returns to her indie roots with the first trailer for White Bird in a Blizzard. The actress plays 17-year-old Kat Connors, whose repressed mother Eve (Eva Green) suddenly disappears, just as she discovers her own sexuality. After returning home from college a few years later, Kat must confront why her mother really left.

Christopher Meloni, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe and Thomas Jane co-star in writer-director Gregg Araki's upcoming drama, debuting on iTunes September 25 ahead of its theatrical debut October 24.

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears - just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's »

Are we underestimating “The Fault in Our Stars” as an Oscar contender?

11 August 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, Josh Boone’s The Fault in Our Stars all but swept the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Now, believe me when I say we shouldn’t put much stock into that particular award show, but considering how few of my colleagues seem to agree with me that the film will be in contention for the Oscars, I felt like this was worth bringing up. The Academy always seems to want to skew younger, but they’ve so far snubbed comic book movies and Ya action adventures like The Hunger Games franchise. This could be a different story though. If ever there was a Ya contender that the Academy Awards could get on board with, it’s this one. The Fault in Our Stars differentiates itself by being a touching drama, basically the sort of thing that a voter loves to watch already. Lead actress Shailene Woodley is a budding »

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort fall for each other in The Fault in our Stars.

Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Ansel Elgort (Carrie) star in the drama-romance The Fault in our Stars, a favorite of fans and critics alike that’s already grossed a whopping $125 million at the domestic box office since opening wide in U.S. theaters this past June.

Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

17 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nat Faxon and Will Forte have known each other for nearly 20 years, ever since they met at the Groundlings theater in Los Angeles.

Which former Oscar winners were nominated for 2014 Emmys?

10 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning was like Christmas for TV and Emmy fanatics, and among the nominees this year, as usual, were a slew of former Oscar winners. In the acting categories this year, it was no surprise to see Matthew McConaughey chalked up for his work in HBO's "True Detective" just four months after completing a near run of the movie awards season table that culminated in a Best Actor Oscar win for "Dallas Buyers Club." Will HBO's decision to put the show in the drama series category rather than miniseries hold him back from an Emmy, given the potential bounty of goodwill for Bryan Cranston and the final season of "Breaking Bad?" We'll soon find out. Joining McConaughey in the category was "Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty" star Kevin Spacey, nominated a second-straight year for Netflix's "House of Cards. In the supporting actor ranks, Jon Voight, Oscar winner for 1978's "Coming Home, »

Critical Unfairness: Just When Do We Wave the White Flag?

7 July 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The contradiction in film criticism certainly does not go unnoticed. Sure, there are countless films that are praised and applauded for its excellence in quality and creativity. Unfortunately, the overlooked cinema fare that deserves just as much attention (more so than some of the recognized critically-acclaimed selections on an impressive selection of critics’ and moviegoers’ radars) get lost in the proverbial shuffle. It is simply the professional hazard of the movie industry because not every well-received and standout gem will get its rightful due come major awards season in Hollywood.

Just how many times have we as movie reviewers and/or movie fans become indignant when we realized that the special piece of entertainment we personally and critically cherished came up short and empty in expectations? Again, every smart kid in the classroom cannot get a gold star as we remain a competitive society in the world of celluloid superiority. »

Variety’s Scott Foundas Remembers Paul Mazursky: A Poetic Farceur of American Lives

1 July 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Are you happy?” the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky’s “Blume in Love” (1973), to which he replies, “I’m just not miserable.” It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer Blume (George Segal) and his wife, Nina (Susan Anspach). But one can find the same scene or its close equivalent in most of Mazursky’s 15 feature films, which time and again centered on small-time American dreamers striving to feel a little less miserable in their lives.

The time was the early 1970s — that much-mythologized moment in Hollywood cinema — and Mazursky was among the directors whose work most embraced the new personal and sexual freedoms then taking hold in American culture and American movies. Divorce and adultery were laissez-faire subjects in his films when they were still taboo around the water cooler. Four years before “Blume,” his debut feature, »
