Find Out What’s Going On In This Exclusive Clip From The Delightful Indie Gem ‘Miss Stevens’

22 September 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The little gem of an indie dramedy “Miss Stevens” slipped off our radar upon its theatrical release last week, but since it hit VOD on Tuesday, here’s a heads up about the film, and an exclusive clip to boot. Consider this our mini-review.

Julia Hart makes her directing debut with “Miss Stevens,” which she co-wrote with producer Jordan Horowitz. Hart wrote the script for the Civil War drama “The Keeping Room,” which was directed by Daniel Barber, and with “Miss Stevens,” she brings things into the contemporary world.

‘Miss Stevens’ Is A Must-See Indie Debut With An Amazing Lily Rabe Performance — IndieWire On Demand

20 September 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: Click here for more information about the indie films available from Movies on Demand.

As the fall movie season heats up and theaters become bombarded with high profile awards release, On Demand becomes more valuable than ever to small indies that risk getting lost in the shuffle. One movie that demands your attention this week is “Miss Stevens.” The debut feature from Julia Hart, who co-wrote last year’s revisionist western “The Keeping Room,” this wonderful drama stars Lily Rabe as a high school English teacher who chaperones a group of students to a drama competition. Timothée Chalamet, Rob Huebel and Oscar Nuñez co-star.

Miss Stevens Review

20 September 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Going in, it is tempting to make a great deal of assumptions about Miss Stevens, because its outer-most layer feels like familiar territory. An unhappy female High School teacher takes three students to a weekend drama competition, and a transformative experience ensues. This is a dramatic plot device that we have seen play out many times on the big screen but – as the film begins its powerful opening sequence, set to the haunting musical saw stylings of Natalia Paruz – it quickly becomes clear that Miss Stevens is actually something else entirely.

This is the directorial debut of Julia Hart (The Keeping Room), who co-wrote the screenplay with producer, Jordan Horowitz (La La Land). What has been created is a stunning work of misdirection, though it is neither contrived nor manipulative. Rather, it works in concert with the habitual expectations of the audience to weave a tale run-through with absolute truth. »

‘Miss Stevens’ Review: This Sweet Indie Dramedy Teaches The Genre A Valuable Lesson

15 September 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Are you waiting for someone?”

Those are the first words spoken in “Miss Stevens,” the modestly scaled but characteristically strong directorial debut from “The Keeping Room” writer Julia Hart, and they bore into the rest of the film like a bad hangover. The usher is just trying to be polite, trying to understand why the crying blonde woman in the back row of his theatre is still in her seat long after the rest of the audience has cleared out and gone home. “Are you waiting for someone?” He has no idea how big of a question that is.

A 29-year-old teacher at a high school somewhere in the deserts of Southern California, Miss Stevens (Lily Rabe) looks like a deer in the headlights and lives like she’s already been flattened. And yet, judging by how aggressively she deflects any and all of the personal questions that her students lob in her direction, »

11 September 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hailee Steinfeld was nominated for an Oscar at age 13 for her performance in the Coen Brothers’ film “True Grit,” and has since had crucial roles in many films, including “The Keeping Room” and “Pitch Perfect 2,” and has even released an acclaimed pop Ep last year. Now, she’s starring in the new teen film “Edge of Seventeen,” about a witty, awkward high school student whose life heads into a tailspin.

Rabe (“Pawn Sacrifice”) stars as a high-school English teacher who chaperones a group of students (one of whom clearly has a crush on her) to a drama competition, with Timothée Chalamet, Rob Huebel and Oscar Nuñez in supporting roles.

Hart also wrote last year’s “The Keeping Room.”

‘Posthumous’ Exclusive Clip: Jack Huston And Brit Marling Star In Rom-Com About a Struggling Artist’s Mistaken Suicide

17 August 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone knows that dying is the best thing that can happen to an artist, but what happens if everyone just thinks you’ve died. Lulu Wang’s romantic comedy “Posthumous” explores that premise, focusing on a struggling artist who’s mistakenly thought to have committed suicide. The film stars Jack Huston (“Boardwalk Empire,” “American Hustle”) as the artist in question whom the public believes is dead. He decides to keep up the charade and pose as his brother, but when he meets a reporter, played by Brit Marling (“Another Earth,” “The Keeping Room”), his plan falls into jeopardy, especially after they start falling for each other. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

White Girl,” September 2 – Elizabeth Wood, Writer and Director

Elizabeth Wood’s feature film debut was almost immediately deemed “shocking!” and “racy!” and “wild!” as soon as it debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, but underneath a film about throwing caution to the wind in the pursuit of both terrible decisions and the capricious joys of youth beats a big, honest heart.

‘Men Go To Battle’ Is A Quietly Resonant Cinematic Experience [Review]

8 July 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Zachary Treitz and Kate Lyn Sheil’s “Men Go To Battle” sets its story in the 1860s, treating the Civil War period as a background prop on a miniscule stage, in an intimate and muted story about two brothers. It’s a film that would make for an attention-grabbing double bill with “The Keeping Room” (coming to […]

‘Outlaws and Angels’ Trailer: Finally, Luke Wilson and Chad Michael Murray Play Cowboys

The past year or so has been a fantastic time for fans of offbeat westerns, with a variety of filmmakers taking on this conic genre and giving it a unique twist. The Keeping Room used the genre to craft a low-key feminist thriller. Bone Tomahawk eased you into a traditional The Searchers riff before taking […]

Film Review: The Keeping Room

16 June 2016 1:11 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Contorting the standard gender expectations of its genre, Daniel Barber's The Keeping Room finally arrives in UK cinemas on the back of considerable praise. Investigations of masculine identity regularly pass the time of day in traditional westerns, yet this revisionist incarnation turns its attention away from the horrors of the Civil War battlefield and instead chooses to focus on the experiences of the women on the home front. The result is an atmospheric drama that fuses the bones of a home invasion flick into a gripping exploration of those exposed to the destructive forces that drive the kinds of characters that usually inhabit these environs.

New to Streaming: ‘The Witch,’ ‘Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party,’ ‘The Family Fang,’ and More

6 May 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, »

Why fewer studio films needn’t be a bad thing

13 April 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Warner Bros is set to be the latest studio to gamble on fewer blockbuster movies. But there's a big silver lining, Simon argues...

Last week, the news landed that Warner Bros was considering reducing its output of films, focusing its slate primarily on DC, Lego and Harry Potter movies.

The argument runs that it’s had a bumpy few years, with expensive films such as Pan, Jupiter Ascending and In The Heart Of The Sea leaving the office copy of Excel looking decidedly red and distressed. The box office tail off of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is said not to have helped, either. It actually looks like we're officially in the era where a movie will end up making just under $1bn and end up being called a commercial disappointment.

If and when Warner Bros follows such an approach – and it’s not confirmed that it will, »

Jenny’s SXSW 2016 Diary: Day 5

16 March 2016 6:36 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The best advice I could give you during a film festival is to take at least one day off. Watching movies is wonderful fun, but there comes a point around day 5 or 6 when the idea of a movie just feels exhausting and all you want to do is lay on your bed, eat, and watch television.

So for the most part of my Tuesday I chilled at home, munching on avocado toast and lounging on my comfortable queen size bed reflecting on the films I have so far seen this festival (this also helped because Letterboxd came out with an app and I could rate all of them from my phone!). I came up with a list of favorites because I am obsessed with ranking and rating things. So below I have listed the films I have seen at SXSW so far from most favorite to least:
