Why We Love ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ 10 Years Later

26 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Little Miss Sunshine,” that gem of a dramedy about a family trekking across the country for a child’s beauty pageant, turns 10 years old today. The film was produced with a budget of $8 million and ended up grossing over $100 million, earning four Academy Award nominations and winning two. Did you know its script came from first-time screenwriter Michael Arndt (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Inside Out”) and marked the directorial debut of husband-and-wife team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (“Ruby Sparks”)? Here are 10 more reasons “Little Miss Sunshine” endures as a cinematic classic. The opening scene.A first shot says a lot about a movie—its story, tone, visual language—and Dayton and Faris nail that concept by introducing us to Olive, the innocent dreamer and heart of “Little Miss Sunshine.” As portrayed by (an Oscar-nominated) 10-year-old Abigail Breslin, the character engulfs the screen with her wide-eyed, bespectacled expression; she »

Cyberpunk Classics and Kinky Sex Fables: 5 Must-See Japanese Films At Japan Cuts 2016

14 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

North America’s largest festival of new Japanese cinema, and pound-for-pound one of the most consistently rewarding film festivals on the planet, Japan Cuts grows more vital with every passing year. In part, that’s because Manhattan’s Japan Society has done a stellar job of cultivating a local audience, pouring resources into the annual celebration, and programming their slates in a way that appeals equally to cinephiles, otaku, and people who just want to see a movie about a guy who falls in love with his goldfish.

Unfortunately, Japan Cuts also grows more vital with every passing year because the domestic market for foreign film is withering away at a terrible rate, lowering the odds that you’ll ever get a second chance at seeing any of these exhilarating dispatches from the Land of the Rising Sun on the big screen.

This year’s fest, which runs from July »

11 February 2016 3:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Zoe Kazan will star in romantic comedy “The Big Sick”  opposite “Silicon Valley” star Kumail Nanjiani.

Oscar Isaac and Scarlett Johansson: Who’s most overdue for an Oscar nomination now?

21 January 2016 1:22 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Continuing to feed off of last week’s Academy Award nomination announcement (as well as yesterday’s piece on the snubs found within those nominations, in one or two cases), today I want to look at who happens to be most due a nod at this point. An Oscar nom is certainly no easy achievement, but you can usually look around at the actors and actresses who have never been nominated and find at least one missed opportunity on the part of the Academy. As such, today I’m again putting out a list of who deserves a nomination the most, updated since certain contenders like Jennifer Jason Leigh finally have their citation… Here now are ten actors or actresses overdue for an Oscar nomination: 10. Zoe Kazan – Anyone who doesn’t consider Kazan to be overdue for a citation just isn’t paying attention. Look at The Exploding Girl or »
