A Romance Develops in First Trailer for Acclaimed Queer Drama ‘God’s Own Country’

19 June 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of our favorite debuts of the year so far is Francis Lee‘s God’s Own Country, a gay romance set in the harsh countryside in the Yorkshire Moors of northern England. Starring Josh O’Connor as farmer joined by a Romanian worker (Alec Secareanu), it picked up a directing award at Sundance in its : World Cinema Dramatic and ahead of a U.S. release, it’ll arrive in the U.K. this September and now the first trailer has landed.

“British filmmakers have a recent habit of bringing about canonical additions to UK queer cinema with their debuts. Andrew Haigh’s heartbreaking romance Weekend and Hong Khaou’s moving Lilting are now joined by Francis Lee’s gay romance God’s Own Country, a bold and brilliant drama rightfully garnering Brokeback Mountain comparisons out of its Sundance Film Festival berth,” we said in our review. “Anchored by »

Movie Review – Sodom (2017)

31 May 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sodom, 2017.

Written and Directed by Mark Wilshin.

Starring Pip Brignall and Jo Weil.

Synopsis:

British soccer hopeful Will finds himself naked and handcuffed to a streetlight in Berlin after his stag night goes awry. He is rescued by Michael, a dashing local, and the two head back to Michael’s apartment for a night of passion, tension, and self-discovery.

Sodom, the debut film of writer-director Mark Wilshin, is about two guys shagging, which you probably could have guessed from the title. What the title doesn’t tell you is that the film is gorgeously made and very well acted, and that its biggest strength is the exceptional chemistry its two leads have outside of the bedroom rather than in it.

Given that Sodom features only two characters, who happen to be gay and romantically involved, and is set almost entirely in a single apartment over the course of a night, »

Newswire: Ridley Scott has found the J. Paul Getty III for his kidnapping movie

4 May 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Two projects about the 1973 kidnapping of heir J. Paul Getty III are casting right now: FX’s Danny Boyle limited series Trust, and Ridley Scott’s film All The Money In The World. Now, Scott has apparently picked the victim in his telling of the true crime tale. Charlie Plummer has landed the role, according to Variety. Plummer previously appeared in Boardwalk Empire, and will soon be seen in Lean On Pete, the new movie from Weekend and 45 Years director Andrew Haigh. Variety also reports that Plummer almost landed the part of Peter Parker, but got beat out for the Marvel part by Tom Holland.

Getty’s grandfather, J. Paul Getty, at first didn’t want to pay the large ransom the kidnappers demanded, leading to the young man’s ear bring cut off and sent to a newspaper. In Scott’s movie, Kevin Spacey is reportedly going ...

The Weekend Warrior 3/10/17: Kong: Skull Island, Brimstone, Canners

8 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out….but mostly movies. 

This Past Weekend:

It was absolutely no surprise that Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie Logan would top the box office, but it actually ended up doing even better than my prediction when actual numbers came in, grossing $88.3 million over the weekend. That makes it the fourth highest X-Movie opening (including Deadpool) but also the biggest R-rated opening for March, defeating 300’s once-impressive $70 million opening. It’s also the fourth highest R-rated opening of all time after Deadpool, The Matrix Reloaded and American Sniper.

The bigger surprise was how well Jordan Peele’s thriller Get Out held up in its second weekend, not only because it was going up against Logan, but also because high-profile horror films tend »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘Jackie,’ ’45 Years,’ ‘One More Time With Feeling,’ and More

7 March 2017 7:20 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting »

In it, Maslany and Cullen’s characters lie on the grass in a park and have a half-serious, half-joking conversation: “So is this just what you do?” she asks him. “Go from girl to girl to girl?” They begin to embrace as our field of vision gets blurred, an intimate moment that gets interrupted by a lewd question from a man nearby.

With the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival wrapped, we’ve highlighted our favorite films from the festival. Make sure to stay tuned in the coming months as we learn about distribution news for the titles. Check out our favorites below, followed by our complete coverage, and one can see the winners here.

Ana, mon amour (Cãlin Peter Netzer)

We only hurt the ones we love, or at least it seems that seems to be the norm in Cãlin Peter Netzer’s latest film, a cerebral examination of love in decay that appears to be the Romanian New Wave’s (if we can still call that) answer to Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine. Romping, eroding, and unraveling over the course of about a decade or so, Ana, mon amour (Netzer’s first film since winning the Golden Bear back in 2013 for Child’s Pose) concerns itself with the doomed romance of Tomo »

Armie Hammer Is Under Fire In Gripping First Trailer For Mine

17 February 2017 6:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spare a thought for Armie Hammer. The towering actor is just coming off Ben Wheatley’s star-studded Free Fire, a pulse-pounding action-comedy in which he plays Ord, a shady arms dealer that is thrust into the middle of a full-blown firefight once things go south. But for Hammer, it’s out of the frying pan and into the freezer – or should that be desert? – for MineFabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro’s wartime thriller that centers on a U.S. soldier left stranded under the scorching desert sun.

Without any sign of rescue for the next 52 hours, up above you’ll see how Mine transforms into a gritty survival movie, as Armie Hammer’s haggard lead struggles to cope in one of the most inhospitable environments on the planet. To make matters worse, enemy forces begin to swarm in on his location, and it doesn’t take long before Hammer »

Berlin Review: ‘God’s Own Country’ is a Bold, Heartfelt Queer Drama

13 February 2017 8:12 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

British filmmakers have a recent habit of bringing about canonical additions to UK queer cinema with their debuts. Andrew Haigh’s heartbreaking romance Weekend and Hong Khaou’s moving Lilting are now joined by Francis Lee’s gay romance God’s Own Country, a bold and brilliant drama rightfully garnering Brokeback Mountain comparisons out of its Sundance Film Festival berth. Anchored by a quartet of heartfelt performances and tapping into zeitgeisty conflicts between working-class England and growing EU immigration, it’s hard to imagine a more bracingly open-hearted film coming out of Brexit Britain today.

Josh O’Connor is a revelation as Johnny, a 24-year-old farmhand working in brutal isolation on the family estate in the Yorkshire Moors of northern England, which is also the harsh, windswept setting of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights. As foaling season arrives, his family farm, headed by Johnny’s hard-as-nails father Martin (Ian Hart »

Valentine's - Weekend

9 February 2017 7:32 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience is celebrating Valentines Day with favorite love scenes. Here's Jose...

Early on in my life I decided that all my favorite romances had to end with the lovers apart. And I mean, seriously, can you name a perfect romance that ends with happily ever after? From Casablanca to Dr. Zhivago and Roman Holiday, it's as if the movies have always told us that a brief, but powerful romance, the kind which makes us swoon in our 80s like Gloria Stuart in Titanic, is the kind of romance we all should crave. But it wasn't until I watched Andrew Haigh's Nottingham-set Weekend in 2011 that I realized as a gay man there was finally one of these romances for someone like me (I won't go into details of how this movie seems to me my biopic...) in which no one ended dead, as most gay romances do in fiction. »
