Series Mania: Vicki Madden, Vincent Sheehan on ‘The Kettering Incident’
Paris — Making its world premiere in Competition, Foxtel’s eight-part series “The Kettering Incident” arrived as one of the more rarefied entries at this year’s Series Mania in Paris. Presented by creators Vicki Madden and Vincent Sheehan, the show – described down under as “Tasmanian Gothic” – quickly drew good word of mouth, compared favorably by one U.S. exec to the Australian breakout hit “Top Of The Lake.” Set to screen later this year, the series is the first show to be fully financed by the Australian subscription service Foxtel and tells the story of Anna Macy (Elizabeth Debicki), a doctor who returns to her Tasmanian roots after a long time abroad. Back home, in a close-knit logging town, she finds herself caught up in the cases of two girls who mysteriously disappeared in identical circumstances 15 years apart. Here, Madden and Sheehan reveal some of the show’s myriad secrets…

Posterized: Saoirse Ronan

Since we forgot to celebrate Saint Patricks Day and since Brooklyn is fresh on DVD, let's talk everyone's favorite current Irish lass! Saoirse Ronan is only 21 years old (she turns 22 next month) but she's already logged over a decade of work having started as a child in a Irish television series called "The Clinic". Her first movie role was as Michelle Pfeiffer's daughter in the romantic comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman shot in 2005 though it took along time to emerge due to behind the scenes studio and distribution dramas. Her breakthrough Oscar-nominated performance in Atonement (2007) quickly followed. She's now ascended to a real movie star with her warm engaging film-carrying work in Brooklyn (2015).

Let's repeat a bit of Oscar trivia since it's quite impressive and important: Saoirse Ronan (nominated at 13 and 21) is only the 4th child star in history to received an Oscar nomination before and after

Opening Film - The Seasoning House (World Premiere)

Special make-up prosthetics and splatter genius Paul Hyett makes his directorial debut with a harrowing exploration into tense claustrophobia, hard-hitting action and rollercoaster suspense. In a Balkan brothel, where girls kidnapped by soldiers in war-torn zones are prostituted to the military and civilians alike, Angel (Robin Day) is the deaf mute orphan enslaved to care for the inmates. But unbeknownst to her captors, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the seasoning house planning her escape. Psychological horror in the nerve-shredding Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski style but with an ultra-modern twist.
