TV Adaptation of Christie Watson’s Nursing Memoir “Language of Kindness” On the Way

Watson: Twitter

“The Language of Kindness” hasn’t even hit shelves yet and it’s already being adapted for the screen. Christie Watson’s memoir about nurses, compassion, caring, and healing is receiving the television treatment from Mammoth Screen (“Victoria”). Deadline broke the story.

From publisher Chatto & Windus, the book is set for release May 3 in the UK and May 8 in the States. It is Watson’s account of the incredible warmth and empathy found in the nursing profession. The author herself worked as a nurse for 20 years at several hospitals. “The Language of Kindness” “tells stories including the nursing of a premature baby who has miraculously made it through the night, a patient’s agonizing heart-lung transplant, and the hair-washing of a child fatally injured in a fire, attempting to remove the toxic smell of smoke before the grieving family arrive,” the source notes.

Rachel Bennette will pen the series.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Daisy Lewis

Daisy Lewis is a British actress who has demonstrated an interest in directing and writing as well. A lot of people will know her for playing the part of the outspoken Sarah Bunting on Downton Abbey, which is a role that resonated with her own thoughts and opinions. With that said, Lewis’s name has recently come up in the news because Tatler magazine wrote an article stating that Lewis seemed like she would be “fun in bed,” which was rather tasteless to say the least. As a result, Lewis spoke out about the issue on social media, thus prompting the

Lovesick: The Complicated Relationship of "Phantom Thread"

  • MUBI
This essay discusses the end of Phantom Thread in depth and should be read after seeing the film to avoid spoilers.Reynolds Woodcock, an esteemed and sybaritic dressmaker, believes himself to be cursed, incapable of being loved the way he wants. He’s unwilling to alter his life to accommodate a partner, as his is an existence besotted by the rigor of routine, rules, and persnickety tics. The quietude he desires has a hermetic feeling; he says an air of quiet death suffuses his house, but doesn’t realize it's because his serenity is forced, unnatural. As portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis, Reynolds is a fastidious man, one whose attire is never less than immaculate, whose choice and use of words is trenchant and unsparing. Reynolds’s assiduous attention to details, and his utter devotion to his craft, have brought him illustrious customers and a certain amount of influence. But such self-allegiance,

Golden Globes Nominations: ‘Shape of Water,’ ‘Big Little Lies’ Score Big

Golden Globes Nominations: ‘Shape of Water,’ ‘Big Little Lies’ Score Big
Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” were among the big winners as nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards were unveiled in the wee hours on Monday morning.

“Three Billboards,” a revenge drama, “The Post,” a dramatic re-telling of the Pentagon Papers saga, and “The Shape of Water,” an offbeat story about the romance between a mute cleaning lady and a fish-like creature, earned best film and director nods, in addition to picking up nominations for the performances of several of its actors. “The Shape of Water” nabbed a leading seven nominations, while “Three Billboards” and “The Post” picked up six apiece. The other best drama nominees were Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Luca Guadagnino’s lyrical romance “Call Me by Your Name.”

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” unravels a farewell to Daniel Day-Lewis

Another day, another embargo lifts for a high profile December release hoping to make an Oscar play. Today, it’s Phantom Thread, the second collaboration between filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson and actor Daniel Day-Lewis. With Day-Lewis claiming that he’s retiring and that this is his final on screen appearance, the movie has an added bit of prestige to it. Anderson films always have that luster, but this classy outing doubles down on it. PTA and Ddl made something special together last time around with There Will Be Blood. Since then, Anderson has challenged audiences with The Master and Inherent Vice, while Day-Lewis won another Academy Award with Lincoln. Able to speak freely, I must admit to being a bit puzzled by this new work. Still, it will generate plenty of discussion. Plot wise, let me start here with what IMDb lists as the description: “Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London,

Pamela Adlon on Directing Every Episode of Season 2 of Her Remarkable FX Series ‘Better Things’

Pamela Adlon on Directing Every Episode of Season 2 of Her Remarkable FX Series ‘Better Things’
On the coffee table in Pamela Adlon’s sunny Sherman Oaks office, within easy reach of her comfortable, blanket-strewn couch, is a book of photographs by Vivian Maier.

Maier, who worked as a nanny in Chicago for years, took the art world by storm when her work came to light a few years ago. Unknown before her death (her negatives were discovered after she died in 2009), she was keenly interested in all kinds of humans, from homeless people and children to shoppers and socialites. Her uncontrived images grab the viewer in part because they don’t traffic in sentimentality or cliché.

The same can be said for Adlon, creator of FX’s “Better Things,” which returns Sept. 14. After a critically acclaimed first season, she has gone full auteur. Not only did she serve as showrunner and star once again (earning an Emmy nomination for best actress in a comedy), but she also directed every episode of the

Oscar-Winner Murray Lerner, Who Documented Bob Dylan Going Electric at Newport, Dies at 90

Oscar-Winner Murray Lerner, Who Documented Bob Dylan Going Electric at Newport, Dies at 90
Murray Lerner, a seminal music documentary filmmaker of the ′60s and ′70s, has died at age 90 in New York City. The cause of death was kidney failure.

Though less famous than his contemporaries D.A. Pennebaker and the fraternal duo Albert and David Maysles, Lerner was every bit their equal in the cultural significance of his work, recording historic footage of Bob Dylan going electric at the 1965 Newport Jazz Festival and Jimi Hendrix and The Doors giving the final performance of their careers in 1970 at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Lerner died Saturday in his home in Long Island City, N.Y., following an illness of about three months, according to his son Noah Lerner, a writer and producer at HBO. “He was a complete filmmaker,” Lerner tells Variety. “A cinematographer first and foremost, but someone who also wrote, edited, produced, and directed.”

Film producer and friend Martin Lewis remembers Lerner as “one of the most significant music

Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin: Inside the Beloved Comedy Duo's Bitter Split and How They Finally Reunited

Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin: Inside the Beloved Comedy Duo's Bitter Split and How They Finally Reunited
After taking the world by storm with one of the most beloved comedy acts of all time, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis bitterly ended their partnership 10 years to the day after it began.

The two men, different in almost every way except maybe stubbornness, refused to speak to each other for 20 years, until their mutual friend Frank Sinatra surprised them with a forced and uncomfortable onstage reunion in 1976. It would take another ten years after that before they were able to establish a more lasting reconciliation, which they maintained until Martin’s death in 1995.

Film News: Jerry Lewis, The King of Comedy, Dies at 91

Las Vegas – For Jerry Lewis, the “King of Comedy” wasn’t just a mere nickname, but an apt description for his long career and influence. He went from being the most popular entertainer of an era, to notable and studied filmmaker, to charity spokesperson and finally to comic legend. Jerry Lewis died in Las Vegas on August 20th, 2017. He was 91.

When the gawky 19 year-old Lewis met the suave singer Dean Martin in 1946, little did they know that they would become the most popular act in America for several years. Their box office draw was white-hot, so much so that neither of them could keep up with the blur of what happened to them. They eventually broke up at the height of their fame in 1956, during which Martin famously said, “Jer, when I look at you, all I see is a dollar sign.” The second phase of Lewis’s career would be about his prolific filmmaking,

How Jerry Lewis Raised $2.6 Billion for Charity with His Famous Muscular Dystrophy Telethons
Aside from starring in some of the classic comedy films of the past half century, Jerry Lewis will be remembered for his humanitarian work, especially the annual telethon he hosted for 45 years that raised money and awareness for muscular dystrophy.

The telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, for which the comedian served as national chairman of and spokesman from its inception until 2011, dated back to the 1950s, when the Jerry Lewis Thanksgiving Party for Mda raised funds for their New York City area operations.

From 1966 until 2010, Lewis appeared on television every Labor Day as host of the round-the-clock telethon to
