News: Eddie Redmayne Channels Transgender Pioneer Lili Elbe for New Film

Redmayne, who won over audiences, critics, and voters with the impressive physicality of his portrayal of Als-afflicted physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, is now preparing for another transformative role. The actor is reuniting with Les Miserables director Tom Hooper to play transgender woman Lili Elbe, one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery, in the biographical adaptation The Danish Girl.

"I was actually offered The Danish Girl before Hawking," Redmayne told British GQ for his Spring/Summer 2015 cover story. "People go, 'Oh are you doing this transformative thing?' It's not a concerted choice. I think it will be a unique experience »

3 March 2015 9:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michelle Williams has discussed supporting Kristen Bell's 'No Kids Policy' after seeing people "cashing in cheques off of my daughter's face".

The My Week with Marilyn actress has a 9-year-old daughter Matilda, from her relationship with the late Heath Ledger.

She told Elle UK: "There are so many problems with that. But Kristen [Bell] has made it so much easier for these kids to live in a world that is friendly and that they can trust.

"Every month I send her a gushy, 'You don't know what you've done' note. Now my daughter and other kids aren't scared to walk down the street any more. It's like a miracle," she enthused.

Williams, who wears Louis Vuitton for the magazine's shoot, also discussed juggling motherhood with work, and revealed that balancing both often leads to her falling asleep - and snoring - through exhaustion at parties.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Woman in Gold’

9 February 2015 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gustav Klimt may have been celebrated for his gilded portraits of elegant Austrian ladies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the same approach suits “Woman in Gold,” director Simon Curtis’ garish “good taste” account of how a determined Jewish exile (played by Helen Mirren) sought the restitution of a Klimt painting seized by the Nazis. Weinsteined to within an inch of its life, this compelling true story forbids any room for perfectly reasonable arthouse audiences to question Maria Altmann’s case, striking back at the anti-Semitism of the time with an equally noxious caricature of modern Austrians as law-bending, art-thieving monsters.

In other words, “My Week With Marilyn” director Curtis and screenwriter Alexi Kaye Campbell (a theater talent making his bigscreen debut) have taken the position that there’s no room for debate where rectifying the wrongs of Austria’s past is concerned, which makes for a reasonably dull ride, »

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well.  "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

London — Ava DuVernay’s “Selma,” Simon Curtis’ “Woman in Gold” and Anton Corbijn’s “Life” will screen at the Berlin Film Festival as part of the Berlinale Special program.

Selma,” which stars David Oyelowo and Tom Wilkinson, makes its international premiere in Berlin. It was described by Variety‘s reviewer as a “razor-sharp portrait of the civil rights movement.” Pic has made faltering progress in the awards season, mainly due to the lack of screeners.

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…

Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.

We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).

In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
