Patty Jenkins Celebrated with Women in Motion Award at Festive Kering Bash

Patty Jenkins Celebrated with Women in Motion Award at Festive Kering Bash
Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins talked about expanding opportunities for women in filmmaking at an elegant, star-packed dinner on Sunday hosted by luxury goods firm Kering and the Cannes Film Festival. The filmmaker was being honored with the 2018 Women in Motion Award.

Jenkins, who received the honor from festival president Pierre Lescure, artistic director, Thierry Fremaux and Francois-Henri Pinault, president and CEO of Kering, said she was thrilled to see more and more women getting the opportunity to tell universal stories. The Women in Motion’s Young Talent award went to Carla Simon, who recently made her feature debut with “Summer 1993,” which won best first film at last year’s Berlin Film Festival.

“For more than a hundred years, universal stories have been told from one perspective only; it’s time to change that because we all have universal stories to tell,” said Jenkins, who told Variety that “Wonder Woman 2

Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘Patrick Melrose’: ‘Sherlock’ star could win another Emmy [Watch]
Emmy-winning “Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch returned to TV in a big way on May 12 with a critically acclaimed performance in the title role of “Patrick Melrose.” This five-part adaptation of the bestselling series of books by Edward St. Aubyn concludes on June 9, just before TV academy voters start casting their Emmy Awards nominations ballots. Watch an extended video clip from the Showtime limited series above.

St. Aubyn’s quintet of novels — “Never Mind” (1992); “Bad News” (1994); “Some Hope” (1996) “Mother’s Milk” (2005) and “At Last” (2012) — was re-released as “The Patrick Melrose Novels” in 2012. The author adapted “Mother’s Milk,” which contended for the Booker prize, for a 2012 film version directed by Gerald Fox. “Smash” star Jack Davenport played the part.

Tackling the adaptation this time around is BAFTA-nominated David Nicholls. He crafted the 2015 film adaptation of the Thomas Hardy classic “Far From the Madding Crowd” that starred Carey Mulligan as well as

Paul Dano on Making His Directorial Debut With ‘Wildlife’

Paul Dano on Making His Directorial Debut With ‘Wildlife’
Paul Dano, the intense star of “There Will Be Blood,” makes his directorial debut with “Wildlife,” a coming-of-age drama. The IFC release debuted to strong reviews at Sundance and will be the opening night film at Critics’ Week in Cannes. “Wildlife” stars Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal as an unhappy couple, and examines the strain that the dissolution of their marriage puts on their son (Ed Oxenbould). Dano wrote the script with his partner Zoe Kazan.

Why did you want to adapt “Wildlife”?

It had this great passage about how from the outside a family can look happy, but if you look closer, you realize that behind closed doors something is deeply wrong.

Did Richard Ford give you any advice about making the film?

He wrote me and said, “My book is my book. Your picture is your picture. You’d be doing me a disservice if you try to please me.

Carey Mulligan Tried and Failed to Watch ‘Drive,’ Admits She Still Hasn’t Seen the Nicolas Winding Refn Classic

Carey Mulligan Tried and Failed to Watch ‘Drive,’ Admits She Still Hasn’t Seen the Nicolas Winding Refn Classic
Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” was a critical favorite in 2011 and won the filmmaker best director honors at the Cannes Film Festival, but don’t ask Carey Mulligan if she likes the drama or not. Speaking with Variety at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where Mulligan’s “Wildlife” opened Critics’ Week, the actress admitted to still not having seen “Drive,” which represented one of her breakout roles in the U.S.

“I never saw ‘Drive’ finished. I never got to do any press for it,” she said. “I tried on an airplane, but then someone walked past and saw me watching myself.”

Mulligan revealed she hates watching herself on camera. She remembered telling her mother that “An Education,” the 2009 Lone Scherfig drama that marked a breakthrough for her career, was “terrible” after she saw a preview of the film before the Sundance Film Festival premiere.

“I had never seen myself on-screen that much before,

Mulligan detects hope on the horizon by Richard Mowe

There used to be times when British actress Carey Mulligan was working on films where she felt her influence was not as strong as her male co-stars.

And at the beginning she felt she was just grateful for a job, never mind asking for pay parity.

Now she believes that Time’s Up and #MeToo have helped to improve the position for women in the business.

Like Jury President Cate Blanchett, however, she considers that there has to be more than mere talk. The recent action of London’s Royal Court Theatre (she appeared there recently in Girls & Boys) to make all employees read and sign off on a code of conduct, has met with her approval.

Cannes 2018: ‘Wildlife’ Review: Dir. Paul Dano (2018)

Wildlife review: Debuting director Paul Dano helms this impressive adaptation of Richard Ford’s 1990s novel, one he also co-wrote with partner Zoe Kazan.

Wildlife review by Paul Heath.

Wildlife review

Hot from its impressive debut at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, comes the European debut of Paul Dano’s striking directorial debut Wildlife, a 1960s-set drama that lands in Cannes as the big opener for the celebrated Critics’ Week.

Based on the 1991 novel of the same name by Richard Ford, Wildlife is set in Great Falls, Montana where teenager Joe Brinson (Ed Oxenbould) lives with his mother and father in a rather insignificant house, in a rather insignificant street. This is sixties small-town, mid-western America where Joe’s father Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) works as assistant at a local golf course, while mother Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) remains at home. An idealistic life is hardly expected early on, the young Joe split

Carey Mulligan On The Draw Of ‘Wildlife’ And The Industry’s Failure To Reflect Complicated Women – Cannes Studio

In Paul Dano’s Wildlife, which premiered at Cannes’ Critics Week last night after a debut in Sundance, Carey Mulligan plays Jeanette, a woman who responds to her husband’s desertion to fight a fire raging outside their small town by carrying on an affair with an older businessman while her 15-year-old son looks on. Working with first-time director Dano, and co-screenwriter Zoe Kazan, was a draw for Mulligan, but it was the opportunity to play a woman with honest flaws…

Carey Mulligan: ‘There’s Been a Massive Injustice’ Against Female Filmmakers In the Past — Cannes 2018

Carey Mulligan: ‘There’s Been a Massive Injustice’ Against Female Filmmakers In the Past — Cannes 2018
Carey Mulligan is excited about the future. At a Thursday afternoon conversation at the Cannes Film Festival, part of Kering’s always-stellar Women in Motion series, the “Wildlife” actress opened up about how recent changes in Hollywood have begun to erode some of the imbalances she’s long seen in the industry, especially when it comes to female directors and the opportunities afforded to them.

“Now, we’re starting to address the balance,” she said. “But there are people who’ve made great films who haven’t had the opportunities that a male director would have had. Dee Rees, for example… She should direct everything, I think she’s a genius. And I think if she was a man, probably those opportunities would have come quicker. I’m sure they are all coming, but I think that’s largely to do with what’s happened in the last year.”

Carey Mulligan on #MeToo, ‘Wildlife’ and Why She Refuses to Join Twitter

Carey Mulligan on #MeToo, ‘Wildlife’ and Why She Refuses to Join Twitter
Carey Mulligan plays a woman who cheats on her husband in “Wildlife,” a shattering, 1960s-set drama that opened Cannes’ Critic Week. It’s the kind of warts-and-all role that are usually reserved for men, Mulligan said during an hour-long interview on Thursday as part of the Variety-Kering Women in Motion talks.

“You very rarely see women on screen who are being unfaithful,” she argued, adding, “It’s so rare to see a woman allowed to fail on screen.”

In past productions — both studio films and low-budget indies — Mulligan said that directors have cut scenes in which her characters have done something morally objectionable.

“I was told the audience doesn’t really like it when she’s not very nice,” Mulligan said.

But Jeanette, the unhappy housewife that Mulligan plays in “Wildlife,” isn’t a villain or even a bad person. She’s frustrated by the limited opportunities afforded her in a sexist society,

Carey Mulligan Has Never Seen ‘Drive’

Carey Mulligan Has Never Seen ‘Drive’
Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” was one of the most acclaimed films of 2011, but one of the project’s stars will have to take the critics’ word for it.

During a conversation with Variety at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, actress Carey Mulligan disclosed that she’s never actually seen the L.A. pulp thriller co-starring Ryan Gosling, or at least not the final print.

“I never saw ‘Drive’ finished. I never got to do any press for it,” she said.

Mulligan, who is in the South of France to promote her new film, “Wildlife,” was working on a different project at the time of “Drive’s” release. She did, however, make an effort to see it.

“I tried on an airplane, but then someone walked past and saw me watching myself,” she said with a laugh.

In general, Mulligan isn’t a big fan of watching her own films.

Wildlife Review – Cannes 2018

  • HeyUGuys
Paul Dano’s impressive directorial debut is based on Robert Ford’s 1990 novel. As is common with Ford’s fiction, one of the protagonists has some relationship with sport and, like many of his characters, the parents in Wildlife are drifters of sorts. The setting is Montana, where Ford’s popular short stories were set.

Dano very quickly sets the scene and this seemingly sweet small-town family is soon revealed to be a poisonous cauldron bubbling below a calm surface. Dad is Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal), mum is Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and their 14-year-old only son is Joe (Ed Oxenbould). The trio of Js seem happy: Jerry has a job at the golf club, Jeanette is a stay-at-home mum and Joe is sailing through school and tackling football. Yet this apparent idyll is not what it seems: Jerry used to be a pro golfer, Jeanette is lonely in her new town

Wildlife review – director Paul Dano luxuriously evokes smalltown woes

Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal’s marriage capsizes in 50s Montana in an impressive directorial debut by Dano, based on the Richard Ford novel

This handsomely made, meticulously acted period picture is an impressive directorial debut for Paul Dano – and a triumph for its production designer Akin McKenzie and cinematographer Diego Garcia, who create some soberly beautiful tableaux of postwar American life.

With his partner, the screenwriter and actor Zoe Kazan, Dano has adapted the novel by Richard Ford about Joe, a teenage boy who has moved to a small town in 1950s Montana with his parents, on the genteel middle-class poverty line, living from pay cheque to pay cheque, and then to lack of pay cheque. When his restlessly angry and unemployed dad leaves the family home to take a low-paying job fighting wildfires up in the hills, it ambiguously signals the end of his marriage, and Joe is

Cannes: Jake Gyllenhaal to Play Leonard Bernstein in ‘The American’

Cannes: Jake Gyllenhaal to Play Leonard Bernstein in ‘The American’
Jake Gyllenhaal is set to produce and star as Leonard Bernstein in “The American,” with Cary Joji Fukunaga directing and producing.

Bron Studios will produce and back the film, which begins principal photography in the fall. Sierra/Affinity will handle international sales of the project during the Cannes Film Market.

.

The screenplay, from Michael Mitnick, is based on the biography “Leonard Bernstein” by Humphrey Burton. In five movements, like a symphony, “The American” follows Leonard Bernstein from conducting the New York Philharmonic at the impressive age of 25 through the meteoric rise to fame, all while struggling both personally and publicly to be everything that everyone expected him to be, most of all himself.

The project is an original idea, developed by Nine Stories, Gyllenhaal’s and Riva Marker’s New York-based production company. Gyllenhaal and Marker will produce alongside Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert, Fukunaga’s Parliament of Owls and Martha Parker.
