Period Drama Forward – GEOSTORM *** Oct 20th

I’m think of starting a new section on this site called PERIOD DRAMA FORWARD.  Since we don’t have period drama news everyday, once in a while a current day or future day film comes along. I have no idea if it will be any good, but usually I find the cast interesting. I shall hope to have one of these segments weekly.  Starting off this segment with :  GEOSTORM

GERARD BUTLER VS NATURE
In the movie department you can also check out the gorgeous new poster for Gerard Butler‘s GEOSTORM which will storm its way into cinemas next month also starring Abbie Cornish, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia.

When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth’s very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geo engineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program’s malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.

Copying Beethoven 2006

Personal Favorite of mine

 

It is set in 1824 as Beethoven (Ed Harris) is finishing his Ninth Symphony. He is plagued by deafness, loneliness and personal trauma. A fictional character, a new copyist, Anna Holtz (Diane Kruger) is engaged to help the composer finish preparing the score for the first performance. Anna is a young conservatory student and aspiring composer. Her understanding of his work is such that she corrects mistakes he has made, while her personality opens a door into his private world. Beethoven is initially skeptical, but slowly comes to trust Anna’s assistance and eventually grows fond of her. By the time the piece is performed, her presence is a necessity and she helps him conduct the premiere from a spot hidden amongst the orchestra.

After the premiere, they collaborate and become closer. His eccentricities become more and more troublesome, but Anna continues to provide companionship. She eventually transcribes his compositions as he simply talks her through them.
