In my conversation with Fernando Trueba at the W Hotel Union Square in New York, he paid tribute to Emilio Ruiz del Río, who also worked with Stanley Kubrick (Spartacus), David Lean (Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago), Nicholas Ray (King Of Kings), John Milius (Conan The Barbarian), and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth). Fernando's latest, The Queen Of Spain (La Reina De España) stars Penélope Cruz who was also his The Girl Of Your Dreams (La Niña De Tus Ojos) with Antonio Resines, Santiago Segura, Rosa Maria Sardà, Jorge Sanz, Jesús Bonilla, and Loles León, who all return here.

The post The Queen of Spain Movie Review appeared first on Shockya.com.
Samuel Goldwyn Films has snagged the U.S. rights to “The Queen of Spain,” a comedy that sees Oscar winner Penélope Cruz playing a film star. ScreenDaily reports that a VOD launch is planned for August 29.
A follow-up to 1998’s “The Girl of Your Dreams,” “The Queen of Spain” centers on Macarena Granada, “who flees Hollywood in the 1950s and returns to her roots in Spain where she signs on to star in an epic film as Queen Isabella of Spain,” the source summarizes. “The Girl of Your Dreams” depicts Macarena earlier in her career when she’s invited to film a project in Nazi Germany’s Ufa Studios.
Both Spanish-language films were helmed by Fernando Trueba (“Belle Epoque”).
“This movie captures the era in the middle of ’50s where we see the encounter of Spanish Cinema (under Franco) with American Films (at McCarthy times),” said the director. “It’s a comedy that is a tribute to classical comedy, it’s my love letter to movies and its people.”
“The Queen of Spain” screened at the Berlinale back in February.
Cruz won an Oscar in 2009 for “Vicky Christina Barcelona.” She also scored nods for “Nine” and “Volver.” She’ll play fashion designer Donatella Versace in the upcoming season of “American Crime Story,” set to debut next year.

This edition has marked a new record with 847 qualifying films of which seven have participated in prominent A-list film festivals including Venice, Cannes, Mar del Plata and San Sebastian.
Madrid’s regional government launched Film Madrid in early 2016 to promote and advise film and TV shootings, taking over the role the Madrid Film Commission played from 2004-14.
The new office aims to play an active role in a region that hosts more than 1,500 film and TV companies, a centerpiece of Spain’s film-tv industry.
Initial Film Madrid efforts were twofold: Alerting the Madrid-based film and TV sector of its launch and raising awareness among political authorities of the socio-economic potential of the film industry.
Madrid Ramps Up Efforts to Lure Production
One key measure, framed in a 2014 law, allows film and TV producers the free use of spaces the regional government owns or controls.
Another priority is internationalization. “We aim to be, from a public perspective,
Presided by Kirk D’Amico, Myriad will introduce “Shadow Girl” to buyers at the Cannes Film Market which kicked off yesterday.
Targeting a still underserved Ya and adult female audience which has made a large hit of such titles as “Me Before You,” “Shadow Girl,” marks a move towards the mainstream for Claudia Myers who broke through to attention with “Fort Bliss” – a “solid, affecting drama,” Variety said.
Billed as a magical love story and from an original screenplay by Myers which also has coming of age elements, “Shadow Girl” stars Mamet as a girl, Holly, who has literally faded with the death of her mother until near invisible – until she meets Shane, a disgraced Mma champ, who can make her out. But Holly discovers she bears more responsibility than she imagined for Shane
Vertigo Releasing has nabbed UK rights to Sundance comedy-drama The Last Word, starring Shirley MacLaine and Amanda Seyfried.
The deal was negotiated by Ed Caffrey from Vertigo and Kirk D’Amico from Myriad Pictures.

Caffrey said: “We’re very excited to be working with Kirk and the whole team behind The Last Word on the UK release. Shirley MacLaine is Hollywood royalty and delivers a fantastic performance that we’re confident will really travel.”
Said Myriad president and CEO D’Amico: “I am delighted that Vertigo will release
Poking fun Hollywood, and the golden age of movie-making in particular, Fernando Trueba’s The Queen of Spain laughs at the industry with the same affection and romanticism that Hail, Caesar! carried, to find that compatible balance between ridicule and adulation. Given this meta endeavour is set within the business it allows the filmmaker a licence to be overstated, and he uses that freedom in quite remarkable fashion, with an aesthetic almost as vibrant as that of which we saw in his enchanting, Oscar-nominated animation Chico & Rita.
Blas Fontiveros (Antonio Resines) has been presumed dead, but makes a shocking return to world of make believe by turning up on the set of the Hollywood blockbuster set in Spain and starring their most famous export, the fictional creation of Macarena Granada (Penélope Cruz) – a character who first graced the screen in Trueba’s The Girl of Your Dreams
