  • post Sophie Okonedo: ?My body is my barometer ? my instincts are physical? - 23 April
  • The celebrated actor on her new play with Damian Lewis, why performing is an adventure, and leaving London for the countrySophie Okonedo was born in 1968 in London and studied at Rada. She has worked extensively across theatre, film and TV and was nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for the 2004 film Hotel Rwanda. On Broadway, she won a Tony award in 2014 for A Raisin in the Sun and two years later was nominated for her performance in Arthur Miller?s The Crucible. Her TV credits include The Slap, Undercover and The Hollow Crown. She is currently performing alongside Damian Lewis in Edward Albee?s 2002 play The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?; she plays Stevie, a woman who discovers her husband is having an affair with an animal.What was your first reaction on reading The Goat?
    I thought I was due a break from theatre, because I?ve been doing a lot, but I was just really gripped by the play. I found it quite shocking. But everything I do is based on instinct, so when people say: ?Why did you do that??, I don?t really know? my gut just told me to. Continue reading...
  • post The Lovers review ? Debra Winger impresses in nuanced tale of infidelity - 22 April
  • The Oscar-nominated actor stars with Tracy Letts in a well-observed film about a cheating couple who fall in love with each other again after years of marriageFor an extended period throughout the 80s and early 90s, Debra Winger was one of the most successful female actors in the industry, scoring three Oscar nominations and appearing in films, such as An Officer and a Gentleman, Terms of Endearment, and Shadowlands. But in 1995, after co-starring with Billy Crystal in Forget Paris, she took a hiatus. While she claimed it was a decision based on a simple desire for time off, many saw it as an indication of how Hollywood treats women over the age of 40, her choice of roles clearly drying up. Related: Don't call it a comeback: the actors set to return to the A-list in 2017 Continue reading...
  • post No link to the Bard ? but this Lady Macbeth is just as deadly - 22 April
  • Rising British star Florence Pugh wins global acclaim as ?kick-ass? bride in new film dramaWhen cinema audiences meet Florence Pugh?s striking Lady Macbeth later this week they won?t get what they expect. For a start, this is not that Lady Macbeth.Pugh, 21, has not been cast as the Shakespearean villain who urges her husband to further her ambitions by killing a Scottish king. Instead, the acclaimed rising star from Oxfordshire plays the lead in a British retelling of a lurid Russian story from 1865 about a discontented, and ultimately violent, young bride.

  • post How one woman harnessed people power to ?save? old New York - 22 April
  • New film tells story of Jane Jacobs?s battles against the wealthiest developers in the cityShe was a beaky, bespectacled architecture writer, hardly a figure likely to ignite protests that changed the shape of one of the world?s great cities. Yet such is the legend of Jane Jacobs and her bitter struggles to preserve the heart of New York from modernisation that a film charting her astonishing victories over some of the most powerful developers in the US is set to inspire a new generation of urban activists around the world.Citizen Jane: Battle for the City tells the story of Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, who made herself the bane of New York?s powerful city planners from the 1950s to 1970s. Her nemesis was Robert Moses, the city?s powerful master builder and advocate of urban renewal, or wholesale neighbourhood clearance ? what author James Baldwin termed ?negro removal?.

  • post Raw director Julia Ducournau on how to make a horror film as creepy as possible - 21 April
  • The brains behind the French cannibal film that overwhelmed Toronto audiences shares her tricks for creating menacing, hair-raising body horrorJulia Ducournau?s debut feature film, Raw, made headlines at Toronto last year when a couple of horrified audience members fainted in the cinema and an ambulance had to be called. All publicity is good publicity, but the director wasn?t thrilled.?For me, it?s really something that I could have done without,? Ducournau said in January in Paris, to tells a room full of press. Her film ? which opened this week in Australia ? had just screened; none of us fainted. ?I saw it snowball on the internet for a week afterwards, and there?s pretty much nothing you can do about that. At one point people were talking about a movie that is not mine ... My movie?s not a shocker, it?s not a blood fest; it?s more than that.? Continue reading...
  • post John Boyega: from Peckham, to the Death Star, to the Old Vic - 21 April
  • British actor who found global fame in the rebooted Star Wars franchise to take lead role on London stageLike many overnight sensations, John Boyega worked on his craft for a very long time indeed before he became famous. The British actor was five years old when he first realised his love for performing, while playing a leopard in an infant school production. Continue reading...
  • post Their Finest review ? sharp wartime romance - 23 April
  • Gemma Arterton shines in a big-hearted and witty drama about the making of a second world war propaganda filmLondon, 1940. Catrin (Gemma Arterton) is scurrying home through the blitzed streets at dusk. Without warning, she is sideswiped by a bomb blast. Blinking grit from her eyes, she stumbles into a pile of broken bodies. Her initial horror tips into laughter when she realises that they are shop mannequins. Then she notices that one of them is bleeding ? a salesgirl lies amid the wreckage of the window display. While the dust and death is still clearing from the air, Catrin vomits from shock, silhouetted in a yawning archway.The scene elegantly combines twin themes in this bracing second world war romance from Lone Scherfig. It captures the savage uncertainty of life during wartime; and, in a nod to the film?s movie industry backdrop, it deftly peels back layers of reality and artifice. Continue reading...
  • post The Transfiguration review ? drab horror - 23 April
  • An unhappy marriage of indie arthouse movie and slasher flick, lacking the conviction of either genreA friendless, orphaned teenager who lives alone with his ex-army older brother, Milo (Eric Ruffin) likes long walks, vintage horror movies and eating human flesh. He finds a companion in new neighbour Sophie (Chloe Levine), a loner with psoriasis and a tangle of curly hair. The two bond over their dead parents, flaneuring the outskirts of Brooklyn and cosying up in Milo?s apartment to watch graphic YouTube clips of animals being slaughtered. It?s all very cute. These scenes alternate with Milo?s secret kills; moments of gory violence signposted by buzzing, electronic sound design.With its handheld tracking shots, soft lighting and long stretches of silence, the film mostly positions itself as an indie drama, though it takes great pains to namedrop its bloodsucker references (Martin, Nosferatu, Let the Right One In and even Twilight all receive shout-outs). The effect is thin; less creative genre-smashing than a drab lack of commitment to either its mumblecore or horror sensibilities. Continue reading...
  • post Viggo Mortensen calls Argentina president 'neoliberal braggart' - 21 April

  • post Michael Moore: 'Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate. Trump knew that' - 21 April
  • The Oscar-winning documentary film-maker discussed the president and the continuing relevance of Bowling for Columbine at the Tribeca film festivalIt was 15 years ago when the release of Michael Moore?s landmark documentary Bowling for Columbine became a national sensation that attracted both critical acclaim and an avalanche of controversy. The film, which focused on the 1999 Columbine high school shooting and the then emerging threat of gun violence in America, won the Oscar for best documentary and functioned as a prescient warning of the American political and social upheaval that would soon hold the country in its grasp. In fact, according to Moore: ?We could release this film again this Friday and it sadly would probably be every bit as relevant.?
