Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘Youth’ Soundtrack Features Sun Kil Moon, Bill Callahan, David Byrne & More

21 May 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Italian director Paolo Sorrentino knows his contemporary indie music, and even in a movie like “The Great Beauty,” filled with sonorous opera, vocal ensemble, and classical music, he still manages to sneak in some Esg, Damien Jurado, Decoder Ring, and Gui Boratto’s Kompact Records version of “Take My Breath Away.” The director also clearly has affection for classic post-punk influenced music. His 2011 film, “This Must Be the Place” (named after a Talking Heads song), featured Sean Penn in a role that appeared to be a thin disguise for The Cure’s Robert Smith, and its soundtrack featured artists like David Byrne, Will Oldham, Jonsi from Sigur RosIggy Pop, and more. His latest film, “Youth,” which just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival (read our review here), has its own hip score. The film features Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, and Paul Dano and centers on two aging friends, »

2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 8: No Love Lost on Sorrentino’s “Youth”

21 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The last of the three competing Italian films for the Palme d’Or, unlike 2008 where Garrone’s Gomorrah edged out Sorrentino’s Il Divo, here, solely going by grade average, it is Youth that is edging Tale of Tales. His seventh feature film, a Toni Servillo-less second English language film and fifth to appear In Comp at Cannes, Youth stars Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano and Jane Fonda in what appears to be a nice companion piece to his Oscar-winning The Great Beauty. Our Nicholas Bell describes the filmmaker’s touch as “less bombastic and potentially meditative with characters contemplating a last hurrah as they remember highs and lows.” Previously the filmmaker first shored up in Cannes with 2004’s The Consequences of Love, 2006’s Friend of the Family and who can forget career belly-flop in 2011’s This Must Be the Place.

Cannes: Paolo Sorrentino on Why the Boos for 'Youth' Amused Him

21 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Cannes: Michael Caine Will Win Awards for Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth' Italian writer-director Paolo Sorrentino returned to the Cannes Film Festival yesterday to premiere "Youth," the follow-up to the biggest crossover hit of his career, "The Great Beauty," which premiered at the festival in 2013 and went on to win 2014's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. "Youth" marks Sorrentino's second English language feature following 2011's "This Must Be the Place," which also first screened at Cannes. The comedy stars Michael Caine as an elderly famed composer on an extended stay at a an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps, along with his filmmaker friend (Harvey Keitel). Indiewire's Eric Kohn called "Youth" Sorrentino's "most broadly appealing comedy-drama" in his review.

Oh, Youth and Beauty!: Sorrentino’s Shows Softer Side in Switzerland

Following the success of the snide yet undeniably eloquent 2013 title The Great Beauty, which ended up snatching the Best Foreign Language statue at the Academy Awards, Paolo Sorrentino takes a second dip in English following 2011’s This Must Be the Place with Youth. Tender, sweet, and more emotional than his last film, Sorrentino is once again pontificating on the last chapter of life, this time through the vessels of a retired composer and aged film director, as portrayed by Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel. Threaded with the auteur’s usual flashes of visual inspiration, this time around he seems less bombastic and potentially meditative with characters contemplating a last hurrah as they remember highs and lows.

At an isolated hotel in the foothills of the Alps, two old friends return to spend another vacation period. Retired composer Fred »

'Youth': Cannes Review

20 May 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Youth is a voluptuary’s feast, a full-body immersion in the sensory pleasures of the cinema. A film about old artists by a much younger man, Paolo Sorrentino’s second English-language feature is an immeasurable improvement on his first, This Must Be the Place, standing much closer to the level of his 2013 triumph, The Great Beauty, as it takes on potentially heavy material in a disarmingly whimsical, intelligent and keen-witted manner. Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, both at the top of their games, wonderfully carry this spirited look at two aging artist friends with distinctly different ideas about

Cannes Film Review: ‘Youth’

20 May 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “The Great Beauty,” there’s a flashback in which a young Jep Gambardella recalls the promise of love — its loss, with the betrayal of youthful ideals, leads to Jep’s crushing self-contempt. It’s a tender moment in a film of deep cynicism, and now Paolo Sorrentino, with “Youth,” delivers his most tender film to date, an emotionally rich contemplation of life’s wisdom gained, lost and remembered — with cynicism harping from the sidelines, but as a wearied chord rather than a major motif. Set in a Swiss spa with two old friends — one a retired composer-conductor, the other an active helmer—  “Youth” is less flashy than Sorrentino’s recent pics but no less beautiful. Shot in English, with leads Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel bringing lifetimes of depth to their roles, the film, which Fox Searchlight is releasing Stateside, could become Sorrentino’s biggest box office hit yet. »

Cannes Review: Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel Give Their Best Performances in Years in Sorrentino's Whimsical 'Youth'

20 May 2015 3:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 2015 Indiewire Cannes Bible Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's movies are always filled with elaborate techniques to a sometimes overbearing effect, though never without purpose. From the isolated experiences of a tyrannical leader in the baroque "Il Divo" to the immeasurably quirky "This Must Be the Place" to last year's spectacular foreign language winner "The Great Beauty," Sorrentino's filmmaking utilizes an operatic approach that refuses to slow down even when it gets overwhelming. Nothing has changed in that respect: "Youth," his latest and most broadly appealing comedy-drama, offers a spectacular excess of whimsical storytelling loaded with outlandish visual gags strewn throughout nearly every scene. Regardless of different viewers' tolerance level for that approach, however, one strength of "Youth" stands out as undeniable: Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, as a pair of strained artists approaching 80 and »

Jude Law Will Play The Young Pope In Paolo Sorrentino’s HBO Series

18 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s official: Jude Law will become the latest A-lister to head to the small screen, with news that he’s signed on to topline Paolo Sorrentino’s first-ever television series The Young Pope. Confirmation of Law’s involvement coincides with HBO picking up the show for broadcast in the U.S.

Law will portray a fictional American pope named Lenny Belardo who, upon being selected as the next leader of the Catholic Church, reveals himself to be the most conservative one in the history of the faith. Even the Vatican’s most prominent figures are not prepared for many of the hard-line policies Belardo sets out to implement. The series will take place in both the U.S. and the Vatican. Its timing is intriguing, given that the real-life Pope Francis is widely considered to be one of the most modern and liberal leaders the Church has had in many years. »

Disparate “Youth”: Fox Searchlight Fawn over Fonda in Palme d’Or Cannes Contender

28 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Fox Searchlight folks have always been a label who look towards Youth and they could technically be the first out of the gates among U.S. distributors (the usual suspects include the IFCs, SPCs and Weinsteins) to land a 2015 Cannes Film Fest title. THR reports that a deal is near on Paolo Sorrentino’s second English language feature. The film will likely be included in fall fest showcases in Telluride and Tiff for what could be an awards push for acting perfs from Michael Caine and Jane Fonda.

Gist: La giovinezza tells the story of Fred (Caine) and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Micks enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009.

The United Nations Released a Playlist of the World’s Happiest Songs

21 March 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Friday was the United Nation's International Day of Happiness, and who better to ring in the day than Pharrell? Speaking to a crowd of students, the artist-producer told them that fighting for the environment was crucial to everyone's happiness. "If you don't have a home, then you don't have a life. So we have to transition from 'climate change' to 'climate action.'"In concert for the big day, the U.N. also released the "world's happiest playlist" as determined by Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and a bunch of celebrities from Ed Sheeran to Britney Spears. Strangely, Pharrell's "Happy" is not on the list! Maybe that would have seemed like favoritism? (Pharrell, for his part, picked the Talking Heads' "This Must Be the Place.") Here's a list of each celebrity and their picks from the UK Independent. You can listen to the playlist on MixRadio. A R Rahman »

Rome Film Fest Gets New Toppers: Piera Detassis Prexy, Antonio Monda Artistic Director

20 February 2015 4:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – The Rome Film Festival has a new team in place, headed by its onetime artistic director Piera Detassis who has been appointed president of the foundation that oversees the event, which now appears to be entering a new phase.

Antonio Monda, a multihyphenate with ties to the U.S. film and literary world, is widely expected to be appointed Rome’s artistic director on Monday, replacing Marco Mueller who exited last year, following a turbulent three-year mandate.

Monda is a high-powered New York-based Italo journalist with a flair for PR who has also dabbled in film and held Q&A sessions during the Rome fest. He appears in brief cameos in Wes Anderson’s “The Life Acquatic” and Paolo Sorrentino’s “This Must Be The Place.”
