Juliette Lewis, Grace Van Patten, Mia Goth Star In ‘Mayday’ Movie From Karen Cinorre
Exclusive: Oscar-nominee Juliette Lewis, Grace Van Patten, and Mia Goth have signed on to star in Mayday, an indie film written and directed by first-time feature helmer Karen Cinorre. Soko (Her) and Havana Rose Liu also co-star in the pic, which is currently in production.

Described as a fantastical female-driven action film, the plot focuses on a young woman named Ana (Van Patten) who is transported to a dreamlike and dangerous land where she joins up with a band of female soldiers engaged in a never-ending war along a rugged coast. Though she finds strength in this exhilarating world, she comes to realize that she’s not the killer they want her to be and must use her newfound power to try to fight her way back to life.

Cinorre will produce the project via her Queen’s Army label alongside Jonah Disend of Complementary Colors, Sam Levy, and Lucas Joaquin of Secret Engine.

UK box office preview: ‘Joker’ takes on ‘Judy’
Two disparate pop culture icons battle it out for supremacy.

Two pop culture icons battle for supremacy at the UK box office this weekend, as Todd Phillips’ Venice Golden Lion winner Joker through Warner Bros goes up against Rupert Goold’s Judy Garland biopic Judy which is released this through Pathé.

Phillips’ film has proved controversial since its victorious Venice premiere in August. The studio released a statement last week defending the film in response to parents of victims of the 2012 Aurora cinema shootings, who expressed concern over the film’s depiction of gun violence.

It stars Joaquin Phoenix – widely

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Good Posture’

  • Variety
Tribeca Film Review: ‘Good Posture’
Friendships rarely start on terms more passive-aggressive than an intergenerational one does in “Good Posture,” writer-director Dolly Wells’ roughly drafted feature debut that manages to be just affable enough. Navigating the bookish streets of New York again after playing a kindhearted bookstore owner in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” — this time, behind the camera in present-day Brooklyn — Wells swaddles her film with her soft artistic spirit; an aura she also infused into Marielle Heller’s melancholic drama. The result is a genial slice-of-life comedy, a female-driven, late-coming-of-age tale in the tradition of Lynn Shelton’s “Laggies,” exclusively brewed and bottled among the tree-lined sidewalks of Bed-Stuy.

While sufficiently charming, “Good Posture” would have been mostly unremarkable if it weren’t for sensational “The Meyerowitz Stories” actor Grace Van Patten, who plays recent college graduate Lilian, an entitled and thoroughly privileged brat who hides her aimless existence behind her noticeable beauty.

Matthew Modine Running For SAG-AFTRA Presidency On Membership First Slate

Matthew Modine Running For SAG-AFTRA Presidency On Membership First Slate
Exclusive: Matthew Modine has thrown his hat into the ring as a candidate for president of SAG-AFTRA. Modine, a member of the union’s local and national boards of directors, is running at the top of the Membership First ticket, the self-styled progressive wing of the union that promises more democracy and transparency — which the union’s loyal opposition says is in short supply. He seeks to unseat Gabrielle Carteris, who’s been president of the union since 2016.

“As a current national and local board member of SAG-aftra, it would be my honor to represent all 160,000 members of the union I have proudly been a member of for nearly four decades,” he said in a statement. “It is my privilege to stand up for our legacy in order to safeguard our future.

‘Good Posture’ Review: Dolly Wells’ Charming Directorial Debut — Tribeca

‘Good Posture’ Review: Dolly Wells’ Charming Directorial Debut — Tribeca
A sketchy comedic drama about two very different (yet oddly similar) women who harness the mystical powers of passive-aggressiveness in order to straighten each other out, Dolly Wells’ “Good Posture” struggles to find a central focus even as lived-in characters and an excellent cast help this debut capture life’s transitional phases with the kind of toothpaste-on-the-bathroom-mirror messiness they sometimes demand.

It helps that Wells is as humane behind the camera as she tends to be in front of it. A warm and casually brilliant actress whose performance in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” is starting to merit her the attention she’s long deserved, the London native has always had a way of mining empathy from exasperation, and — even though she never appears onscreen — that’s still perhaps the greatest strength of her otherwise patchy first effort. Sure, the screenplay hinges on an entitled brat who constantly dares the

“Under The Silver Lake” Is A Fever Dream Of Creativity From David Robert Mitchell

Filmmaker David Robert Mitchell blew me away a few years ago with his sophomore feature It Follows. That made anticipation high for his follow up, which turned out to be the noir crime dramedy Under the Silver Lake. Making its debut last year at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie was met with a mixed reception, which led to a release delay by A24. Now, almost twelve months later, the film finally hits theaters this week. Under the Silver Lake may have puzzled audiences and pundits in the south of France back in 2018, but here in 2019 I’m a big fan. It’s unique and unlike anything else out in the cinematic world. Under the Silver Lake is a mystery set within a slightly off center version of Los Angeles. A plot synopsis is hard to do, and sort of besides the point here. The joy is in the discovery.

Glasgow Film Festival 2019 Review – Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake, 2018.

Directed by David Robert Mitchell.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, Topher Grace, Grace Van Patten and Jimmi Simpson.

Synopsis:

Sam, a layabout, shaggy no-user, finds himself chained to the charm of a mysterious stranger after she goes missing. Through various puzzles and bizarre locations in Los Angeles, he stumbles on a much bigger conspiracy.

Often, the best films are the ones you didn’t expect. David Robert Mitchell already secured critics’ approval with his first feature, The Myth of the American Sleepover. But what came next knocked their socks off (but definitely kept their pants on). It Follows was an instant success, blending the percolating, pitiless moving dread of Carpenter with a tale of sexual deviance wired to the supernatural, thematically prescient but paralysing on a primal level.

It has been said that fame can cause one to become disillusioned with one’s craft, caught up

‘Under the Silver Lake’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, Topher Grace, Deborah Geffner, Riki Lindhome, Jeannine Cota, Chris Gann, Callie Hernandez, Jessica Makinson, Jimmi Simpson, Grace Van Patten | Written and Directed by David Robert Mitchell

Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

David Robert Mitchell follows up his breakout 2014 subverted horror hit It Follows with the conceptually as well as contextually (courtesy of distribution issues and numerous edits) enigmatic mystery thriller Under the Silver Lake. An incredibly bold, superficially intoxicating and elegant thriller that just about keeps its flamboyant head above water while successfully conveying an indulgent, albeit infatuating narrative.

Under the Silver Lake is the definition of mysticism.

Saints & Sinners No Match For Glenn Close In ‘Mother Of The Maid’: Off-Broadway Review

Saints & Sinners No Match For Glenn Close In ‘Mother Of The Maid’: Off-Broadway Review
So maybe Joan of Arc plays second fiddle to few saints in history, but on stage even she’s no match for Glenn Close. As the title character in Mother of the Maid, Jane Anderson’s eccentric and startlingly play opening tonight Off Broadway at the Public Theater, Close takes on history and wins.

Mother of the Maid reunites the actress, as good here as you’ve seen her, with Anderson (the two most recently collaborated on feature film The Wife) and Damages director Matthew Penn. The three play off one another to great effect – Close’s regal demeanor an ironic counterpoint to Penn’s stark staging and Anderson’s near-comic workaday dialogue.

How workaday? “What do I need fuggin’ nuns for?” asks, at one point, Joan of Arc – Joanie to her family. Played (and played very well) by Grace Van Patten (The Meyerowitz Stories), this young saint in the making has the swagger,
