‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’ Review: Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell Get Dark and Freaky

21 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In the annals of 2017 Cannes Film Festival weirdness, “Jupiter’s Moon” gave us a Mexican immigrant who could fly after he was shot, “The Square” put Elisabeth Moss’ character in a perfectly normal roommate situation with a chimpanzee and “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” introduced Elle Fanning as an innocent alien falling in love with a punk-rock wannabe. And then along came Yorgos Lanthimos to say, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” His film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” started with a close-up of open heart surgery and ended with a horrifying scene involving duct tape, a shotgun, »

‘Liar’ Star Joanne Froggatt Says Rape ‘Shouldn’t be a Taboo Subject in Our Society’ (Exclusive)

17 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Liar, Joanne Froggatt (of Downton Abbey fame) plays school teacher Laura Nielson, who accuses a handsome widowed doctor (Ioan Gruffudd) of drugging and raping her. The two go out for dinner, where they hit it off, before heading back to Laura’s apartment. Once inside, they flirt over a couple glasses of wine before Laura wakes up alone in bed the next morning, with the sick feeling that she’s been sexually assaulted.

The British miniseries airing on SundanceTV isn’t so much a show about rape, but rather, what happens when someone reports a rape. What unfolds over the six episodes (which will draw to a “satisfying conclusion,” Froggatt tells Et) is scrutiny of Laura’s past as well as the night of the incident, a decision to go public that polarizes friends and family as the show’s anti-heroine becomes more and more unstable.

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Capsule Review – The Square (2017)

14 October 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Practice what you preach, no matter the circumstances. It’s the main take away from Ruben Ostlund’s (Force Majeure) Palme d’Or winner The Square, but also the easiest for a mainstream audience to grasp. Laced with satirical comedy regarding political correctness, morality, viral social media infamy, absurd jokes so erratic only the director himself could explain their purpose (how about a chimpanzee residing in and wandering about the character of Elizabeth Moss’ abode before she and Christian, the art curator she is beguiled by, lock the bedroom door handles in preparation for sex), the borderline 2 and a half-hour idiosyncratic affair assuredly breezes by on its predilection for weirdness.

Full Review Coming Closer To Release

The Square will play at the Chicago International Film Festival on:

Actor Terry Notary

How ‘Girls’ Led Director Richard Shepard to the ‘Tokyo Project’ (Exclusive)

13 October 2017 12:26 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Set in Japan’s capital, Tokyo Project tells the story of a mysterious romance between two strangers (played by Elisabeth Moss and Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they explore the hidden treasures of the city. Written and directed by longtime Girls collaborator Richard Shepard, who helmed several of the HBO series’ standout episodes, the new short film is his way of satisfying an itch for a “pure creative experience.”

In fact, it was his time on Girls that led to Tokyo Project. While on the set of the Tokyo-based season five episode (“Japan”) directed by Jesse Peretz and written by girlfriend and executive producer Jenni Konner, Shepard was inspired by a mix of love for the city and envy about not being involved in the production. 

“I was watching them shoot and wishing I was making something cinematic,” he tells Et. “I was motivated by some jealousy that I wasn’t directing the episode.” Responsible for two episodes »

Why ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Creator Picked Tom Petty’s ‘American Girl’ to End the Season

3 October 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was the final gut punch delivered in Season 1 of “The Handmaid’s Tale:” Tom Petty’s “American Girl” thundering out as Elisabeth Moss’ Offred faced an uncertain future with a defiant smile.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is just one instance of classic Petty tunes punctuating pivotal scenes in movies and TV series. The musician, who died Monday at the age of 66, had a knack for capturing the essence of people, places and emotions in a plain-spoken way that made them a perfect accent for narrative storytelling.

“American Girl” was one of the songs on the playlist in the ear of “Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Bruce Miller as he wrote the first episode of the Hulu drama series more than a year ago. Miller has been a fan of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for years, but it was his kids who more recently reminded him of the musician’s canon.

Author Erin Carlson on Her New Book “I’ll Have What She’s Having” and the Legacy of Nora Ephron

28 September 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Nora Ephron died in 2012, at the age of 71, but she left an indelible mark on the world as one of the most influential voices of our time. She left behind a strong legacy and continues to inspire new and emerging artists. So, it is no surprise that entertainment journalist Erin Carlson has chosen to write her first book about the late Hollywood powerhouse. In “I’ll Have What She’s Having” she takes readers behind the scenes of the writer-director’s three most successful movies: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” and “You’ve Got Mail.”

I spoke to Carlson about her research process and findings from authoring this book, what she learned about women in Hollywood, Ephron’s impact on the film industry, and more.

W&H: Nora directed her first movie, “This is My Life,” at 50 years old, and the rest is history. How would you describe her impact on the film industry, and rom-coms specifically?

EC: Nora’s gifts as a writer and journalist helped make her as iconic in the romantic comedy genre as her biggest stars and creative collaborators, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. When Nora directed her own scripts, she was masterful — only she could envision and execute the words and dialogue she wrote and the characters whom she developed. Like any singular artist, she leaves an unmistakable imprint on her work; her sweet and tart voice courses throughout her finest films, which also happened to be her romantic comedies. And she was born to make them.

As the daughter of screenwriter duo Henry and Phoebe Ephron, who raised their four girls in Beverly Hills and specialized in romances, Nora witnessed firsthand the process of writing movies, and bringing them to the big screen. She despised the word “art.” Because she understood that filmmaking was a craft, and with more experience, something at which she could improve. The truth is male directors get more chances than their women counterparts to fail and then score another plum project.

Since her critically acclaimed debut film, “This Is My Life,” did poorly at the box office, TriStar, the studio behind “Sleepless in Seattle,” was initially skeptical about handing this novice the reins of a big-budget romantic comedy — of course, she proved everyone wrong, and that romantic comedy became one of the top-grossing offerings of 1993.

Nora knew that two things contributed to a successful romcom: writing and casting. And hers were wry, knowing, and urbane, yet drenched in the unabashed optimism of the Golden Age classics of her youth. She created strong woman characters who could stand up to the men in their lives, and show them a thing or two. For example, Sally turning the tables on Harry, and acting out a fake orgasm in a deli in “When Harry Met Sally.”

Nora truly believed in the possibility of love between equals, and it was important to her to infuse Sally Albright, Annie Reed, and Kathleen Kelly with a voice — and jokes — as strong as the male lead’s. Why should the guys have all the fun? Nora created worlds in which anything, and everything was possible — worlds that we all still want to live in, and we return to again and again.

W&H: How did you come to land on the three films that you chose to highlight from her career?

EC: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” and “You’ve Got Mail” are a trilogy of romantic comedies that represent Nora’s best and most enduring work, and through which her muse, Meg Ryan, played an instrumental part. These movies are her legacy, with “Julie & Julia” runner-up — because Meryl, Stanley Tucci … butter!

Sleepless in Seattle

W&H:You did a great deal of interviews for this book. Which women in her life did you know that you had to talk to and were there any women who did not want to speak to you?

EC: I knew that I absolutely had to speak with Delia Ephron, Nora’s sister and collaborator who worked with her on “Sleepless” and “You’ve Got Mail.” Delia told me she was the “guardian” of the sisters’ scripts, namely that Nora trusted her to protect the integrity of their screenplays during the filmmaking process. Delia had crucial insight into Nora’s vision and working style. I was lucky to interview her.

Meg Ryan, meanwhile, proved a challenge — just when I thought her publicist would connect me for an interview, she went radio silent even though Tom Hanks, her beloved colleague, had spoken with me. At the time, “Star” magazine had done a series of unflattering covers of Meg, and it appeared that she felt burned by the media and potentially even talking to journalists. Who can blame her? However, rather than Meg give me PR-approved soundbites about her own legacy in romantic comedy, it was more fascinating to put together a portrait of her based on my wide-ranging interviews with the folks who could speak openly and honestly about her transformation from ingenue to leading lady in the span of “When Harry Met Sally” to “Sleepless.”

W&H: I loved reading about Nora’s relationships with different men in Hollywood during the course of her career. Can you talk about these relationships, and particularly any sexism in the film industry that she faced during the course of her career?

EC: Nora was married three times. Her first husband was the comedy writer Dan Greenburg, whom she divorced amid the feminist movement that shook things up in the 1970s; her second was Carl Bernstein, who, together with Bob Woodward, linked Watergate to President Nixon. Bernstein left her for another woman while she was pregnant with their second child.

That experience traumatized and humiliated her — but she had the last laugh when she wrote the juicy novel “Heartburn,” a thinly veiled account of the demise of her marriage to Bernstein. That book, of course, became the movie with Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson; Bernstein did not want this movie to get made, though he reportedly loved that Jack, the hottest movie star of his day, was playing a fictional version of Carl.

Several years later, Nora married Nick Pileggi, her third — and best — husband. Pileggi is a “famously nice guy,” as Nora has written, and renowned for his reporting on the Mafia. He wrote the book which inspired Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas.” More importantly, he adored Nora and relished in her success, rather than harbor resentment toward it.

But you’re asking me about Nora’s relationships with men in Hollywood! Well, she and “When Harry Met Sally” director Rob Reiner were pretty tight. He trusted her and believed in her talent and gave her the credit of associate producer on his movie; even though he had a hand in co-writing the script for Harry and Sally, Nora received the sole credit as the screenwriter, as well as the only Oscar nomination for anyone involved with the film. That says a lot about Rob. He’s a mensch, with a strong mother.

Rob appreciated Nora and her contributions and what she brought to the character of Sally as well as her keen social observations and killer one-liners. They understood each other as comic writers and as the children of parents who were successful in showbiz. With Nora, Rob saw an equal. It is utterly mystifying to me that he still believes that men and women’t can’t be friends — how, then, could Nora continue to work in Hollywood and be friends with men like Rob, or Mike Nichols, or Tom Hanks? That is the great irony.

When Harry Met Sally

W&H: What did you learn about women’s roles in Hollywood while writing this book?

EC: It’s still a man’s world, with shitty roles for women and a dearth of directing opportunities. Like Nora, if women want to create movies and TV series centered on female characters, then they will need to write and direct material they originate and cultivate themselves.

W&H: Which modern women in Hollywood have been greatly influenced by Nora?

EC: Funny you ask: Since Lena Dunham was mentored by Nora, and is a hugely talented writer-director in her own right, people want to categorize Lena as the new Nora. She’s not. Lena is open and unfiltered where Nora was self-possessed, always aware of the boundaries between people.

If I had to choose a Nora heir, it would have to be Tina Fey. Tina led “Saturday Night Live” for years before “30 Rock,” and the two women share a similar arch, self-deprecating sense of humor and B.S. detector that have won them zillions of female fans. Plus, they set their movies and TV shows in New York, capturing the endless idiosyncrasies of the Greatest City in the World.

Another thing: I know it sounds weird, but Taylor Swift also reminds me of Nora. She just keeps bouncing back from shit, and reinventing herself, and writing about her love life and exes within a narrative in which Taylor always wins as the heroine, never the victim, of her own story. Her own romantic comedy. Harry Styles be damned!

“You’ve Got Mail”

W&H: How far have women come since then and how do you think Nora would feel about where women in Hollywood are today?

EC: Following a summer in which Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” kicked ass, and Nicole Kidman and Elisabeth Moss cleaned up at the Emmys, it’s easy to feel better about the state of women in Hollywood today. However, we have a long way to go toward creating roles for actresses that are as compelling as those men get to play — and not just love interests, mothers, wives, and daughters.

Nora, a barrier-breaking feminist, loathed panels on women in film. She hated labels and felt trapped by them and wanted to be known as a “director,” not a “woman director.” That said, she would doubtless be heartened by a newly energized feminist movement of women and girls who are taking less shit and taking more names. “Go out and get what you want,” she might tell them. “Just do it.”

“I’ll Have What She’s Having” is available now and can be purchased on Amazon.

Lena Dunham Compares Donald Trump to Charleston Mass Shooter Dylann Roof

Lena Dunham has never been one to follow rules. That includes the Goldwater Rule, which dissuades mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures if they have never treated them in person. Luckily, the “Girls” creator has no such obligation, and the outspoken mental health advocate tweeted yesterday: “Not only is [Donald Trump] a racist, but he’s a racist with untreated mental illness. So under diff[erent] circumstances, he’s Dylann Roof.” The comment came in response to a thread by “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” writer Travon Free urging journalists to call out Trump’s blatant racism.

Dunham was referring to the convicted murderer responsible for the 2015 mass shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
