The Dardennes, Masters of Form – Two Days, One Night

Read More

Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne have made the best film of the Cannes Film Fest so far, Two Days, One Night. With this suspenseful saga of a woman on the verge of losing her job, the Dardennes highlight the economic crisis framed within the context of human nature.

Nicole Kidman Does Grace Kelly in Cannes Opening Film

Read More

Jennifer Lawrence is a tried and true box office star. She draws both men and women, has won an Oscar and seems to have everything a star needs now, male or female, to bring in ticket buyers. The last one like her was Julia Roberts but she never had to endure what every actor/actress has to now: how to shimmy up the pole of the fanboy demographic. Lawrence has done…


Jessica Chastain Close to Playing Marilyn in Andrew Dominik’s ‘Blonde’

Read More

What great news, if true. Chastain is really the perfect actress to embody Marilyn, both physically and otherwise. She exudes the same kind of champagne-like aura. Chastain, like Monroe, draws you in while able to reveal vulnerability at the same time. This versatile actress has really needed just the right role to show us what she can REALLY do and this just might be it. Andrew Dominik is exactly the…

Meryl Streep collected another well deserved accolade from the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.  Streep was praised by playwrites Tracy Letts and Tony Kushner.  Here is what Letts had to say (quote from Hollywood Reporter): “I’m very mistrustful of an actor who shows up knowing all of their lines, because that actor is not trusting the process,” said Letts, explaining that memorization is the easiest part of the job. “She was…
