The Promise: Charlotte Le Bon and Angela Sarafyan Discusses the Love Triangle

Love hurts. Love is complicated.

And in particular, for one man who is trying to keep all his promises during the Armenian genocide.

In The Promise, Oscar Isaacs plays an Armenian medical student who made a promise to wed a girl for money to attend school in Turkey. During his student life, he falls in love with another woman and made certain promises to her too. As the Armenian genocide unfolds, he has made many promises, in which he had to keep and had to break.

The Promise also stars Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Angela Sarafyan, Tom Hollander, James Crowell, Jean Reno, and Tamer Hassan. It is directed by Terry George.

Lrm had a sit-down interview with the lovely actresses Charlotte Le Bon and Angela Sarafyan. We had a wonderful discussion about the love triangle in the film and what supposedly would happen if their characters would’ve met in the movie.

Janeane Garofalo to Make Broadway Debut in “Marvin’s Room”

Janeane Garofalo in “Love Hurts

Janeane Garofalo is set to make her Broadway debut. The two-time Emmy-nominated actress and stand-up comedian will star in Roundabout Theater Company’s “Marvin’s Room,” The New York Times reports. She’ll take the stage this summer. The production will be directed by Anne Kauffman, who is also making her Broadway debut.

The play, which originally ran Off Broadway in 1991, “follows the uneasy reunion between two estranged sisters, one of whom has leukemia,” the source details. A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro was released in 1997. Streep received a Golden Globe nod and Keaton an Oscar nomination for playing sisters Lee and Bessie, respectively. Garofalo will be portraying Lee, and Lili Taylor (“American Crime”) will take on the role of Bessie, who needs a bone marrow transplant and asks Lee for help.

Garofalo’s film and TV career spans nearly 30 years, with credits including “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” “24,” “The West Wing,” “200 Cigarettes,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Reality Bites,” and “The Ben Stiller Show.” She received two Emmy nominations for her role in “The Larry Sanders Show.” In 2012, Garofalo starred in “Russian Transport” Off Broadway.

“With more channels and more media outlets comes the ability of more people to work than when there were only three channels. But there are still rules for mainstream films, music, and TV. That’s the nature of it, that the ladies be attractive, young. The men have more leeway, they can look many ways,” Garofalo has observed. “If you want to see middle-aged women and older: British television. They’re very good about people looking many different ways.”

Both Garofalo and Taylor are 50-plus years old.

Kauffman’s previous directing credits include Off Broadway productions of “The Thugs,” “Belleville,” and “Smokefall.”

Previews for “Marvin’s Room” kick off June 8 and the play will officially open June 29 at the American Airlines Theater.

Janeane Garofalo to Make Broadway Debut in “Marvin’s Room” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Humans Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Dawn of the Synths

If you find yourself in Westworld withdrawal, then boy, do we have the show for you!

Yes, it's about sentient, self aware robots -- here they are called "synths," not hosts. The difference is about how robots fit into the Real world, not just as pawns for the wealthy in a high tech amusement park.

Humans Season 2 Episode 1 starts with the rogue synth Niska, who killed a human last season, in possession of a code from the synth designer that gives her buds complete self awareness, making them essentially human.

Niska finds herself in Berlin, where the romance she has with a human named Astrid is the catalyst for her actions.

Astrid has no clue that Niska is a synth, so I feel really bad that she gave her heart to a machine. Love hurts.

For someone who supposedly wants all her synth brothers and sisters to be just like people,

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has

Oscar News: 322 Invited To Join; The Academy Museum Receives Approval

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar
Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club.

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'Man of Steel' & More

Greetings from the apocalypse! You want destruction? This weekend's got Massive destruction. You want egos? This weekend's got Massive egos. Whether it’s the bickering Apatow Mafia or Zack Snyder pounding Superman's face into the pavement over and over it just might be the end of the world as we know it. Feeling fine optional.

Pow! In Theaters

Nap before Zod! Sorry, boys and girls, but I must be the bearer of sour tidings: "Man of Steel" isn't that great. Is it better than the coat hanger abortion that was "Superman Returns"? Yeah, but not by leaps and bounds. On the plus side the cast is terrific, anchored by the measured charisma of Henry Cavill as the superest man there is and Lois Lane at her spunky best courtesy of Amy Adams. Unfortunately, the retro sci-fi trappings are "Green Lantern"-level ponderous and a climactic Metropolis battle that's 9/11 times-a-hundred ("Yes,

Demi Lovato Recalls Joe Jonas Breakup: "I Was Really Mad at Him"

Demi Lovato Recalls Joe Jonas Breakup:
Love hurts! In a interview with ABC's Nightline News, singer Demi Lovato recalls her largely-reported 2010 romance with Joe Jonas that ended -- much to Lovato's surprise -- only a few months later. "We were in a relationship and we broke up, and at one point, I was really mad at him," Lovato said. Indeed, not too long after their May 2010 breakup (which happened directly before the two former Disney stars were about to hit the road on their Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam tour), Jonas, [...]

The Following episode 10 review: Guilt

Review Ron Hogan 26 Mar 2013 - 08:02

Serial killer series The Following continues to let its women characters down. Here's Ron's review of Guilt...

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 Guilt

The Following has a problem named Natalie Zea. Or rather, the writing staff has a problem writing for women. Despite the quality of the actress and her chemistry with Kevin Bacon, Claire makes the absolutely worst decisions possible pretty much every time she gets a chance to make a decision. This is not a problem unique to The Following, since The Walking Dead has had both Andrea and Lori screwing up left and right for the better part of three seasons (Andrea is particularly bad). If forced to categorize Claire on the Andrea Scale of Stupid, which I am inventing just for this paragraph, she's definitely hovering close to Full Andrea, just with a better actress. 

So much of the plot around

The Following, Ep. 1.09, “Love Hurts”: Of spear guns and self-plagiarism

The Following, Season 1, Episode 9: “Love Hurts

Written by Adam Armus & Kay Foster

Directed by Marcos Siega & Adam Davidson

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Love Hurts” acts as a kind of sequel to The Following‘s most campy episode, “Mad Love,” the themes of both being revenge, self-sacrifice, being punished for love, and silly serial killin’ girls who be crazy. The first time around, it was the best recipe the show had cooked up, finally giving voice and movement to the show’s ridiculous conceits (fear the killer magnet!). This time around, though, by employing practically the same plot as its predecessor, we end up with shock value déjà vu. Worse still is the distinct feeling that the entire second half of this season is just going to repeat the first half, ever since the farmhouse climax-that-wasn’t.

For starters, sweet, spear gun-wielding Amanda is an exact replica

The Following episode 9 review: Love Hurts

Review Ron Hogan 20 Mar 2013 - 07:32

Is The Following making a point about random violence, or just enjoying it? Here's Ron's review of Love Hurts...

This review contains spoilers.

1.9 Love Hurts

There's a certain kind of casual violence that has infected The Following that I'm not sure about. In certain situations, like tonight's harpoon gun incident or when Ryan randomly guns down Joe's cultists, it's borderline funny. For instance, tonight Ryan shot Louise - she's the blonde woman who gutted a random security guard a few episodes ago - in mid sentence without even blinking. I'd say that's a spoiler, but nobody really cares about Louise and she's basically another random cultie there to take a bullet for Joe. In other circumstances, the random violence is kind of disturbing, such as when one of many women named Claire Matthews dies via defenestration or when random helpful strangers are gutted. 

That's this week's scheme du jour.

Following The Following – Preview Of Episode 10 – Guilt

The Following is quickly becoming one of the best shows on TV. If you haven’t been watching, it’s time to catch it on VOD and get up to speed. Kevin Bacon is fantastic and James Purefoy seems to be finding his inner Hannibal Lector and has really cranked up the creepy as the incredibly twisted Joe Carol.

This past weeks (which aired last night) was titled Love Hurts and was actually a very tight, … Continue reading →

'The Following': Adan Canto on playing evil and filming that scene...
In a show about a murderous former English teacher played by James Purefoy and starring Kevin Bacon, it was the relationship between fake gay cultists Paul (Adan Canto) and Jacob (Nico Tortorella) that lit up the Following-themed corners of the Internet. That was, until last night.

[Spoiler Alert: Don’T Keep Reading If You Haven’T Watched The Lastest Episode]

In “Love Hurts,” we saw the latter smother the former, gently, with a pillow — because Paul was dying anyway; because Jacob had never killed anyone; and because Paul wanted his life to “mean something.” (Awww.)

EW talked with Canto about his character’s emotionally twisted end and his just-plain-emotional arc on the series.

Recap: 'The Following' - 'Love Hurts'

  • Hitfix
A crazy woman writing her own chapter of Joe Carroll's murderous story, several senseless murders, and one love affair gone horribly awry: Just another Monday night with "The Following." As this show goes on I'm increasingly convinced that that 16-episode season is just way too long for a show that is running on some of the same plot devices in order to maintain suspense.    The primary tension in "Love Hurts" is the love triangle introduced in the premise: Ryan and Joe both love the same woman, Claire Matthews. The manifestation of the triangle is a bit different -- there's always...
