Baykali Ganambarr.

Jennifer Kent’s The Nightingale will open in Australian cinemas on January 24, the Australia Day weekend, as distributor Transmission Films aims to cash in on the film’s two prizes and glowing reviews at the Venice International Film Festival.

“Obviously screens are at a premium over summer but our plan is to emulate the Sweet Country release pattern,” Transmission joint MD Andrew Mackie tells If.

Produced by Kristina Ceyton of Causeway Films and Bruna Papandrea and Steve Hutensky of Made Up Stories, the revenge thriller won the special jury prize in Venice and Baykali Ganambarr received the Marcello Mastroianni award for best new young performer.

Critics lauded the film, which will premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival on October 13, as gripping and gut-wrenching yet also touching, leavened with laugh-out-loud moments.

In his screen debut Ganambarr plays an Aboriginal tracker named Billy who accompanies young Irish convict Clare (Aisling Franciosi

Eerie Mondo Poster Art For Upcoming Horror Film Suspiria

Mondo has revealed a piece of poster art for the upcoming remake of the supernatural horror thriller Suspiria. It was created by artist Sara Deck and it gives off a hauntingly beautiful vibe.

The artist had this to say about her work:

“I can’t think of anything more exciting than getting to provide artwork for a film that you were already eagerly anticipating seeing. I will admit to an extreme bout of nerves prior to finally sitting down to work out some concepts for the final print. In the end, Suspiria had ample disturbingly beautiful visuals to offer up, so it was less a struggle and more a pleasure to interpret. Of all of the concepts that I came up with, I am so happy that we went forward with this one. This image to me reflects the unsettling tension surrounding Mme. Blanc and her desire. With palms up imploring the viewer,

“She’s A Monster”: Isabelle Huppert On Playing A Psychopath In Neil Jordan’s “Weird” Thriller ‘Greta’ – Toronto Studio

  • Deadline
A surprise hit at this year’s Tiff was Neil Jordan’s Greta, a female-centred thriller in which Chloë Grace Moretz plays a young girl who falls prey to an older lady named Greta (Isabelle Huppert) after finding her handbag on the subway. Although the reviews were kind, none exactly made claims for great art, so it was a relief when Jordan and his cast—Moretz, Huppert and co-star Maika Monroe—arrived at the Deadline studio with a healthy sense of humor about it.

Said Jordan, “The script that was sent to me was kind of like a generic Hollywood thriller, and what appealed to me was that the men in it were useless, and the women saw things [differently] amongst each other, in all sorts of interesting ways. But then I began to rewrite it and change it into something slightly weirder. It’s about obsession, captivity, romance, need and desire.

Tiff Review: Isabelle Huppert Terrorizes Chloë Grace Moretz in ‘Greta’

Neil Jordan’s Greta starts off being a story of two lonely people living in New York: the eponymous Greta (Isabelle Huppert) and Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz). It is a swift friendship that develops between the two after Frances finds an unclaimed handbag in a subway and goes to an address in Brooklyn to return it. Before we can ask if her mother ever taught her not to speak to strangers, we know that it’s been a year since Frances’ mom died. As Erica (Maika Monroe), Frances’ roommate and friend, puts it, Frances was probably just trying to fill up the void left behind by her mother through her friendship with Greta. Before long, the two are picking pets, taking walks in Central Park, and cooking dinner together. “I’m like chewing gum,” Frances says while promising Greta of her companionship. “I tend to stick around.” It is a

The Miseducation of Cameron Post review – poignant, witty, defiant

Chloë Grace Moretz stars in Desiree Akhavan’s bittersweet drama tracking the doubts and defiance of a teenager sent to a gay conversion facility in 90s Montana

The Iranian-American film-maker Desiree Akhavan, creator of the admirably spiky 2014 romcom Appropriate Behaviour, cites John Hughes, Lynne Ramsay and Todd Haynes as key influences on her latest film – a neat summation of the warring elements behind this engagingly subversive coming-of-age tale. Adapted from Emily M Danforth’s 2012 novel by Akhavan and co-writer/producer Cecilia Frugiuele, it documents the abusive “gay conversion” therapies inflicted upon teenagers by zealous Christians. Yet while the subject matter may be dark (self-hatred and self-harm are confronted head-on), Akhavan plays it with poignant wit, zest and a lusty sense of defiance, combining the bonding charms of a brat-pack crowd-pleaser with the psychological terrors of a prom-night horror flick.

In early 90s Montana, orphaned teen Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz

The Miseducation of Cameron Post review – coming-of-age in the glare of prejudice

In Desiree Akhavan’s affecting drama, Chloë Grace Moretz plays an orphaned teenager packed off to a creepy camp for her sexuality to be ‘corrected’

The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a sad, sweet, funny coming-of-age movie where nobody comes of age. They have all pretty much come of age before the film starts: then sent to a Christian teen camp to be told they have come of age incorrectly – homosexually, in fact – so they must be forcibly regressed via prayer and workshops to a pre-age-coming state in preparation for a new coming of age in the accepted Christian heterosexual sense. However, given that even straight sex before marriage is frowned on, the new approved flowering may still be a way off.

This is our heroine’s bizarre “miseducation”, and it cleverly works against the genre’s traditional narrative trajectory, in which quirky yet attractive lovelorn teenagers learn bittersweet lessons

The movie bogeyman of the year? Fundamentalist religion

From The Miseducation of Cameron Post to Apostasy, a new generation of film-makers are railing against the strictures of scripture

Towards the end of Desiree Akhavan’s incendiary sophomore feature, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Chloë Grace Moretz’s central character attacks the anti-lgbt Christians running the conversion therapy camp where she is living for the emotional abuse inherent in “programming people to hate themselves”. She has spent months encased in the world of the God’s Promise camp, in which homosexuality is euphemistically referred to as “Ssa” (same-sex attraction) and the residents are called “disciples”. Akhavan’s film is an angry depiction of a Christianity that is openly hostile to anyone whose sexuality sits contrary to the notion of the traditional nuclear family and, with that, it joins the ranks of a 2018 movie canon that positions religion squarely as an antagonist.

At the beginning of the year, Greta Gerwig

Exclusive: Chloë Grace Moretz & Desiree Akhavan on The Miseducation of Cameron Post

  • HeyUGuys
Sundance favourite The Miseducation of Cameron Post finally comes to UK cinemas this week, and to celebrate that fact, we sat down with the film’s director Desiree Akhavan, alongside the eponymous lead star, Chloë Grace Moretz.

We began by asking Akhavan why she opted to write and direct a movie she wasn’t to star in, and whether she consciously wanted to make a film solely from behind the lens. We also discuss the impact Trump had on the shoot, for he became President mid-way through the project.

Moretz goes on to tell us how she went about emotionally connecting to the role of Cameron Post, and finally we ask the duo what their favourite karaoke song is – following on from our favourite scene in the movie.

Venice 2018 Critic’s Notebook: Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria and Tsai Ming-liang’s Your Face

The Venice Film Festival’s main competition does not enjoy a reputation as a go-to place for adventurous cinema. So far, this year’s selection has been pretty much on brand: big-name directors, “important” themes and very little risk-taking. It’s safe to assume Venice will again be well represented on Oscar night. Against all expectations (or at least mine), the first film to break this frustrating mould proved to be Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria. Judging from the cast and crew — cinematography by Sayombhu Mukdeeprom!; music by Thom Yorke!; starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Fanning, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ingrid Caven and Angela […]

Movie Review – The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

The Miseducation of Cameron Post, 2018.

Directed by Desiree Akhavan.

Starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Forrest Goodluck, John Gallagher Jr., Owen Campbell and Jennifer Ehle.

Synopsis:

A lesbian teenager is sent by her family to a Christian camp where similar youngsters are taught to conquer their sexuality before being allowed back into the world.

It’s fair to say that queer cinema is in the midst of something of a boom period. Recent years have seen movies like Moonlight and Call Me By Your Name become Oscar juggernauts, while God’s Own Country charmed audiences all over the planet and, earlier this year, Love, Simon brought Lgbt issues into the very heterosexual world of the studio romcom. Arriving into the more indie corner of the market is The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which is a quietly harrowing journey into the dark, backwards industry of gay conversion therapy.

Trailer Breakdown: On Venice’s Eve, The Witches Are Back in ‘Suspiria’ Marketing Blitz

It’s been a while since a horror movie’s remake achieved the levels of anticipation like the kind Luca Guadagnino’s forthcoming remake of Suspiria has wracked up this last year. Since its official announcement two years ago, many questions and equal the trepidation about what the Call Me by Your Name director could possibly bring to the Dario Argento classic have been raised, from the general “Why does it need to be remade” all remakes are understandably haunted by and theories about what techniques and throwbacks would be invoked to replicate the original’s iconic visuals and Goblin soundtrack. When the first teaser debuted earlier this summer, many’s fears were quelled and replaced with a new possibility: not only could the film actually be good, it now had the potential to be equal to its inspiration, perhaps even… surpass it.

‘Suspiria’ Review: Luca Guadagnino’s Horror Remake Is a Grim and Glorious Work of Madness — Venice

  • Indiewire
‘Suspiria’ Review: Luca Guadagnino’s Horror Remake Is a Grim and Glorious Work of Madness — Venice
Almost certain to be the most polarizing film since “mother!” split audiences between rapture and embarrassment last fall, Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” is a coldly violent seance for the evils of the 20th century, none of which are quite as dead as we might have once hoped. Based on the screenplay of Dario Argento’s giallo classic, Guadagnino’s radical new take is less a remake of the original than it is an estranged sibling — the fraternal twin sister who recognized herself as the black sheep of an already twisted family, ran away from home to become a fascist, and has dressed in gray every day since then. Only by drawing some blood can you tell the two are even related.

As grim and severe as Argento’s film was ecstatic and harlequin, this “Suspiria” offers a richer, more explicit interpretation of that old nightmare; it digs up the latent
