The movie, written and directed by Paul Schrader, landed in three categories: best feature, best actor (for Hawke) and best screenplay.
“The Favourite,” Fox Searchlight’s comedy set in the 18th century court of Queen Anne, picked up two nominations for best feature and best screenplay. It will also be awarded a special jury prize for its cast of Olivia Colman (considered an Oscars favorite for playing the monarch), Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz.
The Gotham Awards, presented by the Independent Film Project, are decided by small committees of journalists and film critics. Nevertheless, on the mad dash to the Oscars, the ceremony has become the Iowa caucus of awards season because of its early date. Last year,
The drama stars Molly Ringwald, Brian d’Arcy James, Brendan Meyer, Sam McCarthy, Harley Quinn Smith and Jemima Kirke. “All These Small Moments” is Miller Costanzo’s directorial debut, and she also wrote the screenplay for the film, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

In the film, a teenage boy’s infatuation with a woman he sees on the bus further complicates his teenage years.

Presenting the project at the Lumière Film Festival in Lyon, Mariya Gabriel, the European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, said the directory was the first concrete step of a collaborative project between the European Commission and filmmakers, producers, festival heads and other stakeholders.
Funded by the European Union’s Media Program and launched with the assistance of the European Audiovisual Observatory, the new directory will help professionals and non-professionals alike find information about European films and their availability online on video-on-demand services throughout the European Union.
Gabriel stressed that the directory was particularly vital now in the face of changing media consumption and the increasing dominance of streaming services. Making the distribution of European works a priority will create value beyond content,
“The Rossellinis,” which is being pitched at Rome’s Mia market, takes its cue from the uneasy legacy that the master auteur who first galvanized global film buffs with “Rome Open City” left on the progeny spawned by 3 wives — who include Ingrid Bergman of course — during the course of a glorious, albeit uneven, cinematic career that followed. Besides Ingrid Bergman, the other 2 women with whom Rossellini had kids were Italian production designer Marcella De Marchis and Indian screenwriter Sonali Das Gupta.
The extended Rossellini family includes Italians, Swedes, Afro-Americans, Indians, atheists, Catholics and Muslims.
“It’s a voyage of rediscovery of my family,
A full house packed into the Auditorium della Conciliazione, just steps from St. Peter’s Basilica, for a performance of “Universal Judgment: Michelangelo and the Secrets of the Sistine Chapel,” a $10 million high-tech spectacle produced by Marco Balich, who’s devised opening ceremonies for the Olympics in Rio, Sochi, and Turin.
With a theme composed by Sting and starring A-list Italian actor Pierfrancesco Favino, along with a voice performance by Susan Sarandon, the immersive show featured dancers, acrobats, 4K projections onto giant ceiling screens, and floor-shaking 9.1 surround sound.

A railway station lost property office in a sleepy town connects the seven interlocking and overlapping stories of this lightweight, cheaply made portmanteau comedy from Ireland. It’s written and directed by Liam O Mochain with the kind of inoffensive hot-water-bottle-laughs you wouldn’t think possible after Father Ted. Well, I say inoffensive, but one of the vignettes – about an uptight bridezilla whose sole character trait is her desperation to get married – is depressingly unfeminist.
The film begins promisingly with some deadpan comedy as gormless Daniel (played by the director) gets a job at the lost property office. His zero to minimal commitment to customer service is up there with Bernard from Black Books. Daniel crops up in the remaining stories, some of which, inevitably, work better than others. Liam Carney gives a subtle performance as Eddie,
Screen can unveil the first look at Calm With Horses, Nick Rowland’s feature debut starring Cosmo Jarvis (Lady Macbeth) and Barry Keoghan (The Killing Of A Sacred Deer).
Daniel Emmerson is producing the feature for Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan’s Dmc Film. Joe Murtagh has adapted the screenplay from a novella in the collection of award-winning short stories Young Skins by Irish writer Colin Barrett.
Set in rural Ireland, the film follows ex-boxer Arm (Jarvis) who has become the feared enforcer of the drug-dealing Devers family while
Directed by Argentine-born Gabriela Tagliavini the comedy returns Netflix to women character-driven narratives of other productions such as “The Cable Girls,” and links it once more to one of the Spanish production houses which arguably has best explored a woman’s world, Ramón Campos and Teresa Fernández-Valdés’s Bambu Producciones. the producers of “The Cable Girls, “Velvet” and “Velvet Collection.”
The four actresses play sisters embroiled in a mystery case sparked by the last wish of their dead mother. Before dying, the mother (Marisa Paredes) makes a video for each of her daughters which contain a series of revelations about a family secret which will turn their world upside down and set them off on a common journey which will help them rediscover each other and themselves.
Never let it be said that the British Film Institute doesn’t have a sense of humour. A three-month-long comedy season starts at BFI Southbank on Monday and runs until the end of January, showcasing everything from spoofs to screwball, sitcoms to slapstick. And the BFI has got the season off to a hilarious start by playing a practical joke on its audience: it has given the 1980 workplace farce 9 to 5 an extended run, proclaiming it “a classic feminist comedy”. You guys! You kill me.
It has to be a gag, right? Anyone who has seen 9 to 5 will know that the film bears the same relationship to feminism that Jurassic Park does to palaeontology. It stars Jane Fonda,
Yes, it clocks in at a leisurely 127 minutes, but that makes it only four minutes longer than John Ford’s “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (1962) — just one of the obvious influences on Martin’s scenario about an upright tenderfoot
Steven Turano (Garrett Clayton) is going through a rough patch on his first day as a high school senior. This year should be a cake walk, but for the perpetually withdrawn, suicidal teen, life is a torturous prison. His only potential escape route is the unopened bottle of prescription pills tucked away in his backpack. Steven is bullied sun up ’til sundown by men that include his disciplinarian detective father Steve
When we last encountered Gerard Butler, in the semi-enjoyably derivative Den of Thieves, he was rerunning Al Pacino’s old Heat moves. Tonight, Matthew, cinema’s loudest Scotsman will be impersonating The Hunt for Red October-era Alec Baldwin.
Swerving any lawsuit that might have followed from calling his character, say, Jack Bryan, Butler’s maverick sub commander has been assigned the no less no-nonsense name of Joe Glass. Joe has an intense rep. “He never went to Annapolis!” a Pentagon functionary gasps. “I heard he once punched his Co,” gossips a passing seaman. Glass is first seen tracking elk with manly bow and arrow; you’re surprised the filmmakers didn’t go the whole alpha hog and have a shirtless Butler best the poor creatures in an arm wrestle.
Vs is a movie about the UK rap battle scene, directed by Ed Lilly, co-written by him and Daniel Hayes. It may be a bit rough around the edges, and rough everywhere else as well, but it also has real urgency and storytelling punch, and the contests themselves are tremendously witty, inventive and exciting. If you’ve ever yearned for more literate film scripts, more intelligent verbal pyrotechnics, well … here you go. It’s about a young white rapper who has issues with his mother, and naturally it may owe something to Curtis Hanson’s 8 Mile from 2003, starring Eminem, but I enjoyed this more. It is much less freighted with celebrity self-consciousness.
Adam (Connor Swindells) is a young man who was put into foster care as an infant by his teenage mum.

When Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends come upon the interdimensional door between Earth and the rest of the immortal universe, the demon Michael (Ted Danson) and his helper Janet (D’Arcy Carden) have to come clean about their experiences in The Bad Place and their rebooted chance at redemption.
Unfortunately, in doing so, they’ve doomed the four humans to being damned because now their actions would be tainted with the knowledge of an afterlife. After each of the mortals spiral out in various ways, Eleanor finally comes to the conclusion that even if she’s fated for The Bad Place, she can at least help others on Earth not meet the same fate.

As part of this week’s “The Gang Does a Clip Show” shenanigans, the show took the opportunity to recreate a classic scene from the iconic “The Contest” episode of “Seinfeld.” Lauded throughout the two and a half decades since it first aired, “The Contest” famously never explicitly outlines what each of the characters are refraining from doing. Neither do Charlie, Dee, Frank, Mac, or Dennis as they sit around Paddy’s Pub waiting for a phone to update.

But using the same lines and character entrances, “Sunny” mapped each of its characters onto the classic “Seinfeld” foursome: Frank is naturally George,
The video’s description says it was made “in collaboration with director Terrence Malick and his co-workers,” and it shows — any number of ads made in the last several years bear his influence, but this one looks like it could be a trailer for one of Malick’s own movies. A number of his signature
