Why we're In: Aside from its its all-star cast and dynamic action, Cloud Atlas has a plot that will put your brain through the wringer. Moviefone's New Release of the Week "Back to 1942" What's it about? Starring Adrian Brody, this film portrays the Henan Province famine of 1942 against the backdrop of a war-torn China at a time when the country was partially occupied by Japan. Why we're In: Filmmaker Feng Xiaogang is considered to be one of the greats, which is enough to get our attention, but Best Actor Oscar Award winner Adrian Brody gives this dark epic extra appeal. New on DVD & Blu-ray "Frankie Go Boom" What's it about? A promisingly hilarious »

'Leonie' review: Film uncovers the mother behind the artist

15 March 2013 10:00 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Rare is the artist who drops into the culture, fully formed and utterly self-created. There were influences, nature and nurture, that shaped them.

That's what the new film "Leonie" is about. Leonie Gilmour wasn't a great artist. She took up with a writer and edited him into near-greatness. He then scurried back to Japan and married somebody else.

But the child from that union became sculptor and landscape architect Isamo Noguchi, one of the major figures in 20th century art.

"Leonie," starring Emily Mortimer as Noguchi's mom, must qualify as the oddest "woman ahead of her time" bio-drama in living memory. Here was an early 20th century alumnus of Bryn Mawr and the Sorbonne who never had much of a career herself, but whose influence came from a child she had outside of a conventional marriage and outside the racial boundaries of her day.

In 1901, she responds to an "editor needed" ad. »
