ABC Buys Autobiographical Kat Coiro Family Comedy Set In South Beach

ABC has put in development a single-camera comedy pilot from filmmaker Kat Coiro (And While We Were Here, A Case Of You), which Julie Anne Robinson (The Middle) may direct. The semi-autobiographical family comedy is set in a South Beach Haitian restaurant. Coiro grew up in the apartment above her parents’ Haitian restaurant Tap Tap in South Beach. Her parents both are from European descent but have strong ties to the Caribbean country and had previously taken in six…

New Photos From Woody Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight

We still don’t know too much about Woody Allen’s upcoming Magic in the Moonlight, and a new set of images (below) doesn’t do much to shed light on the story. However, the shots do give us a tantalizing look at the film’s stellar cast, led by Emma Stone and Colin Firth. With Marcia Gay Harden, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney and Jacki Weaver also playing roles, part of me wants to go in with the mystique intact – Allen rarely disappointed, and it would be tricky for him to do so with this cast.

In the past, Allen has fared extremely well by releasing his movies summer months, and no two films are better evidence of that than his last two: 2010′s Midnight in Paris and 2013′s Blue Jasmine. The former, in addition to being Allen’s highest grossing films, won the Academy Award for Best

Kate Bosworth Talks Valentine's Day With Michael Polish, Pregnancy Plans and More!

Kate Bosworth Talks Valentine's Day With Michael Polish, Pregnancy Plans and More!
Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish hit up Guess' star-studded New York Fashion Week party Tuesday, which gave the newlyweds the chance to get dressed up and have a night out on the town. The outing was a far cry from what they have in store for Valentine's Day. "We are just going to spend the day at home. We are just the happiest when we are at home with our dog and cooking something," Bosworth told E! News exclusively. "We will cook something together and turn on the music and just be quiet." Even so, this Valentine's Day—the couple's first since tying the knot—will be intimate and sweet. "He is such a romantic, and I am, too," the And While We Were Here star said. "When...

Playing The Title Name Game on VOD: Or Why Your Film Should Start With the Letter 'A'
"Adore," "After Earth," "And While We Were Here," "All is Bright" and "As Cool As I Am" are among the titles available in VOD now. Notice anything they all have in common? Yes, they all begin with the letter A. And that's no coincidence. "Everybody is coming up with titles like 'Aaa Action Star.' It's like the old days when people would name their company Aaa Acme Exterminator so they'd be listed first," said Bob Berney, CEO of Picturehouse. In fact, some productions are even changing existing titles to benefit from the alphabetical listing interface on most cable networks. Before its VOD release in August, the title of the film "While We Were Here" was changed to "And While We Were Here." By starting with an "A" rather than a "W," the film, directed by Kat Coiro and released by Well Go USA, increased its odds of being a VOD success.

Watch: Justin Long Cute-Stalks Evan Rachel Wood in Trailer for 'A Case of You'
In the internet age, it's hard not to Google search or Facebook stalk potential love interests in the hopes of finding some good info that you can use to your wooing advantage. In the new trailer for "A Case of You," Sam (Justin Long) scours the internet profiles of barista Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood) to learn her likes and hobbies so that he can transform himself into the perfect match. When Birdie falls for him, Sam has to keep up the act, or risk her finding out who he really is, which for some reason is a bad thing. Though the film seems to follow the usual romantic comedy trope of "I'm not who I said I was", albeit with a bit of a creepy stalker vibe, at least Long and Wood look like they've got some chemistry. And hey, is that Peter Dinklage in a comedic supporting role? The

Kate Bosworth (Straw Dogs) explores love outside of marriage in the 2012 movie And While We Were Here.

The romantic drama tells the story of Jane, a writer who’s adapting her grandmother’s World War II stories into a book when she goes with her musician husband (Iddo Goldberg, TV’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl) to his concert on a island off the picturesque Amalfi Coast.

And While We Were Here Movie Review
Title: And While We Were Here Director: Kat Coiro Starring: Kate Bosworth, Iddo Goldberg, Jamie Blackley, Claire Bloom Imagine a boring, gender-swapped and totally arty and pretentious version of the travelogue-mini-film-within-a-film that focuses on Kip Pardue’s character from “The Rules of Attraction,” except strung out on Benadryl instead of methamphetamine, and one has an idea about writer-director Kat Coiro’s “And While We Were Here,” starring Kate Bosworth as a married woman who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads while traveling with her husband in Italy. A film of precious construction but precious little insight, this drama of young adult crisis mistakes mere mundanity for a stirring creative statement. [ Read More ]

And While We Were Here | Review

HereToFore: Coiro’s Latest Stale, Blatant Exercise

Actress turned director Kat Coiro reunites with Kate Bosworth for her sophomore feature, And While We Were Here, leaving behind the situational comedy from their previous venture, L!fe Happens for a somber hearted travel brochure of a couple’s dismantling. While everyone involved seems to be taking great pains to remain understated, there’s a surprising lack of nuance, and Coiro’s screenplay churns like a mealymouthed derivative of any number of similarly themed vehicles.

On the island of Ischia, located off Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Jane (Kate Bosworth) accompanies her husband Leonard (Iddo Goldberg) on a business trip. She’s a struggling writer from the States, while he’s a successful viola player. For years now, Jane has been working on writing a novel recounting her grandmother’s (the voice of Claire Bloom) experiences in WWII Britain, and she spends time

Iddo Goldberg Talks And While We Were Here, Intimate Scenes with Kate Bosworth, Mob City, and Peaky Blinders

From writer/director Kat Coiro, the indie drama And While We Were Here follows a young American writer named Jane (Kate Bosworth), who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads when she accompanies her husband Leonard (Iddo Goldberg) to Italy on a business trip. Once there, their already strained marriage becomes glacial, and Jane finds her life complicated even further when she meets a younger man (Jamie Blackley). During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Iddo Goldberg talked about what drew him to this film and character, what it was like to work with Kate Bosworth, especially in some of the more intimate scenes, and the moments of shared silence. He also talked about the experience of working on Mob City, the TNT drama series from Frank Darabont, and how great it was to be a part of the BBC gangster saga Peaky Blinders, set in 1920s Birmingham.

Review: 'And While We Were Here' Delivers The Sensuality Of The Sun-Kissed Shores Of Naples

Harkening back to Italian neo-realism, the romance of Naples is alive in "And While We Were Here," the latest film from writer-director Kat Coiro. Considerably more watchable than her pratfall-driven debut "L!fe Happens," the picture is significantly more sober-minded, concerning the marriage of pretty blonde Jane (Kate Bosworth) and taciturn, mature Leonard (Iddo Goldberg). They arrive in the city and, almost as if by protocol, consume each other in bed. As she retreats to the lavatory, she gazes in the mirror and wraps her arm around her stomach mournfully. It's not hard to see that, while young, Jane has lost something. Leonard departs for concert rehearsals during the day, leaving Jane alone to swim in her thoughts. However, when they are together, it's not as if she's receiving much intellectual nourishment. She waxes philosophically about David Foster Wallace, but he's more of a meat-and-potatoes type, quite literally in one

Kat Coiro Explains Why She Listened to Her Distributor and Changed 'And While We Were Here' From B&W to Color

Kat Coiro Explains Why She Listened to Her Distributor and Changed 'And While We Were Here' From B&W to Color
Anyone who caught writer-director Kat Coiro's delicate romantic drama "And While We Here" on the festival circuit will notice one big difference about the version being released in theaters this Friday (it's also available on VOD): it's in color. In her own words, Coiro opens up about why she listened to her distributor Well Go USA and agreed to convert the film to color. I shot my second feature film “And While We Were Here” with the intention of screening it in black and white, and when it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and played in subsequent festivals it was seen in its original form. However, the film that is currently streaming on multiple platforms and opening theatrically on September 13th is in color. The explanation for this opens up a rather interesting conversation about the differences between B&W and color and why we ultimately chose

Sun-streaked and Meditative, And While We Were Here Loses its Spark

Sun-streaked and Meditative, And While We Were Here Loses its Spark
And While We Were Here, writer-director Kat Coiro's sun-dappled, largely handheld meditation on fidelity, sometimes recalls Richard Linklater's celebrated Before trilogy—specifically its middle entry, Before Sunset, wherein the fact that Ethan Hawke's Jesse has a wife and kid back home in the States hangs over everything. The married couple that Coiro follows to Italy, Jane and Leonard (Kate Bosworth and Iddo Goldberg), isn't nearly as chatty as Linklater's young/youngish/middle-aged lovers, and we infer quickly that the silence between them is a problem. He's a professional viola player in town for a big concert; she's a freelance writer working on a book about her grandmother's experiences in England during the two world wars.

And While We Were Here Review

A delicate meditation on life, death, love and time, And While We Were Here caught me completely by surprise, in all the best ways. Directed by Kat Coiro (Life Happens), this relationship drama, set on the picturesque Italian island of Ischia, has some big questions on its mind but somehow remains nothing less than feather-light. And though I usually balk at slow-burn films, And While We Were Here swiftly won me over with its stunning backdrop, deeply affecting performances, and intriguing philosophical bent.

Kate Bosworth gives the best performance of her career as Jane, a depressed tourist trapped in a loveless marriage who spontaneously enters into an affair with a younger man she meets while wandering Ischia. In every scene, Bosworth commands the viewer’s attention with work more emotive and utterly mesmerizing than anything we’ve previously seen from her. Though And While We Were Here is too constrained

Exclusive Clip: Kate Bosworth Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks in Kat Coiro’s “And While We Were Here”

In the exclusive clip below, we’ve got a peek at the type of relationship that no longer adds up. Hubby and wife tandem played by Kate Bosworth and Iddo Goldberg look like poster-people for the beginnings of domestic ennui, and as the synopsis suggests it, sees escapism from a comfortable setting replaced by research into a memoir (fueling her creative instincts) and a romantic affair with a younger man (played by thesp Jamie Blackley) which of course make for future rough waters and fuels her need for desire. And While We Were Here (Well Go USA distributes on VOD August 13th, theatrical release September 13th) is a 2012 Tribeca and Locarno Film Festival selected pic from writer-director Kat Coiro, which came on the heals of her 2011 film, L!fe Happens.

'300: Rise of an Empire', 'Labor Day', 'Grudge Match' and 'Last Vegas' in Today's MPAA Ratings

It appears 300: Rise Of An Empire will keep with the original's tradition as a hard R-rating has just arrived for the upcoming sequel which will be hitting theaters next March while today's other three major releases receiving ratings include two PG-13s and a one-time R that won its appeal and has been dropped down to a PG-13. First we have the Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro boxing comedy Grudge Match for which I'm expecting a trailer soon as a bootleg version was floating around earlier this week, but was quickly dropped from YouTube. I caught snippets of it as Kevin Hart is seen running around ranting and raving as Sly and Bobby D get in a fight while wearing mo-cap suits, but didn't watch enough to give any general sense of what it will be like.
