Effie Gray | Review

2 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Portrait of a Lady: Laxton’s Mannered Version of Victoria Era Repression

There’s well-meaningness to Effie Gray that makes it worthy of discussion, at least for how it attempts to frankly portray the sexual oppression of women in Victorian era England, an aspect often subtly rendered or left altogether untouched. As directed by Richard Laxton, best known for his made-for-television films of varying quality (An Englishman in New York; Burton & Taylor), there’s a sense that the somewhat ambitious emotions existing beneath all those stuffy costumes have been a tad oversimplified. Considering the screenplay was penned by Emma Thompson, who appears in a warmly attenuated supporting role, perhaps expectations are poised a bit high for a tale that’s both representative and also conveniently uncommon (this seems the only possible way for this film to reach a believable yet upbeat solution), as it relates a famous art world scandal »

'Huntsman' Prequel Finds Its Dwarves, Plus Plot Rumors

18 March 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Universal's sequel to Snow White and the Hunstman will simply be titled The Huntsman as it sets out to tell a prequel story centered on the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna's (Charlize Theron) lives before the arrival of Kristen Stewart's Snow White. We already knew Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain had joined the cast and Nick Frost was expected to return as Nion, one of the dwarves featured in the first film. Now we learn of three new names joining the cast those being Rob Brydon (Trip to Italy), Alexandra Roach (Cuban Fury) and Sheridan Smith (Hysteria) all as dwarves alongside Frost. Rumors as far as the plot are concerned suggest Chastain will be playing a character similar to the Hunstman, her specialty being with a bow, and they've teamed in an effort to obtain a "magical MacGuffin" before Emily Blunt's evil, frosty Queen can get her hands on it. »

Alchemy Buys Anthony Hopkins’ ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’

13 January 2015 5:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alchemy has acquired the crime thriller “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,” starring Anthony Hopkins, Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington and Ryan Kwanten, and set a March 6 release date for theaters and VOD.

It’s the first deal for Alchemy since it rebranded itself last week and ditched the Millennium Entertainment label. The acquisition of the film is expected to be the first of several upcoming projects with producer Informant Media, which produced “Crazy Heart,” “Hysteria,” “Erased” and “Stuck in Love.”

Swedish director Daniel Alfredson, who helmed “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,” shot the film in Belgium, Amsterdam and New Orleans. Producers are Informant Media partners Judy Cairo and Michael A. Simpson.

The film chronicles the 1983 kidnapping of Dutch beer magnate Freddy Heineken and his driver Ab Doderer. The two were released after payment of a record ransom of 35 million Dutch guilders — currently equivalent to $50 million. »
