‘Younger’ Star Miriam Shor to Guest Star on FX’s ‘Mrs America’ (Exclusive)
“Younger” star Miriam Shor will guest star on FX’s upcoming miniseries “Mrs. America,” starring Elizabeth Banks and Cate Blanchett, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

Film Review: ‘Strange But True’

Film Review: ‘Strange But True’
The last few years have already afforded us multiple opportunities to reflect on the remarkable talents of Margaret Qualley, an actor who, since breaking out in TV’s “The Leftovers,” has delivered pure, clear-eyed conviction to just about anything: She’s equally persuasive playing an anxious novice nun in “Novitiate,” the regally glamorous Ann Reinking in “Fosse/Verdon” or a dazed, flirty Manson girl in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” These are all good parts in good projects; the utter credibility she brings to “Strange But True” is another kind of achievement. Qualley shows up at the start of Rowan Athale’s daft behind-picket-fences thriller, so pregnant it’s a wonder she can walk at all, to announce with a sweet, straight face that she’s miraculously bearing the child of a boy who died five years before. And we utterly believe her, or at least we believe that she believes herself.

John Searles Wrote Strange But True — and Then Starred in the Film Adaptation with Greg Kinnear

John Searles Wrote Strange But True — and Then Starred in the Film Adaptation with Greg Kinnear
Two summers ago, my boyfriend, Thomas, and I were stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway, when my cell lit up with a number I didn’t recognize. Spam, or so I thought, before playing the message: “Hi, John! I’m calling from the wardrobe department on the set of Strange But True. We’re trying to determine what your character would wear in the scene you’re shooting with Amy Ryan this week. Give us a call back.”

Seeing as the majority of my voicemails are robocalls from a woman speaking Chinese, this message was more than a little exciting.

While Melissa prepares for the baby’s arrival, aided by kindly godparents Bill (Brian Cox) and Gail (Blythe Danner), Philip and Charlene embark on divergent quests to prove and disprove her story respectively, leading the former to a local psychic and the latter to her estranged husband, Dr. Richard Chase (Greg Kinnear).

World-premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival, Rowan Athale's second feature is an international affair. Adapted from a 2002 John Searles novel, it was filmed in Canada by a young Brit director with a mostly American cast. A superior B-movie at heart,...

“Late Night” Is A Crowd Pleasing Comedy From Mindy Kaling

Back at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, one of the more commercially viable movies to screen was Late Night, a comedy penned by and co-starring Mindy Kaling. Those thoughts were not misguided either, as strong reviews preceded Amazon Studios stepping up with a big film acquisition. Now, it’s hitting theaters, hoping to work as a bit of summer counter-programming. The folks at Park City weren’t lying either, as this is a real crowd pleaser. Anyone not into explosions and blockbusters would do well to check this one out. It’s quite charming, with an undercurrent of angry satirical humor, to boot. The film is a combination of showbiz/workplace comedy, as well as a look at being a woman in a male dominated industry. For years, Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) has been a pioneer and legendary late night talk show host. Faced with low ratings, the

Movie Review – Late Night (2019)

Late Night, 2019.

Directed by Nisha Ganatra.

Starring Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow, Reid Scott, Amy Ryan, Denis O’Hare, Hugh Dancy, Max Casella, Paul Walter Hauser, John Early, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Blake DeLong, Jia Patel, Bill Maher, Seth Meyers, Annaleigh Ashford, Halston Sage, and Ike Barinholtz.

Synopsis:

A late-night talk-show host suspects that she may soon lose her long-running show.

Hopefully, everyone has come to the conclusion that humor and the designation of what’s funny are subjective; it’s intriguing to watch a film aware of that ideology. With ratings tanking and interest dropping off the charts, aging Englishwoman Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) invites a fictional popular YouTube celebrity onto her titular late-night talk show, but instead of using this exchange as a moment to punch down on the less sophisticated and more teenage targeted comedy, the script sticks to its guns painting Katherine as an out of touch
