  • post Stolen thunder: Keira Knightley's Colette champions overlooked female writers - 18 December
  • Films such as Colette and The Wife are eager to tell the stories of female authors whose husbands took credit for their work ? and it?s a battle that still isn?t wonThere is a Punch cartoon that depicts a business meeting in which the lone woman at the table is sharing an idea. Her boss responds: ?That?s an excellent suggestion, Mrs Triggs. Perhaps one of the men here would like to make it.?Watching Colette, this joke kept popping into my head. Starring Keira Knightley, the film tells the story of French author Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette in the years following her marriage to ?Willy,? a literary celebrity 15 years her senior. When Willy?s Claudine novels take Paris by storm, he indulges in toasts and parties, gathering up young women to dance the can-can on restaurant tables. The only issue is that the books are, in fact, written by Colette. Continue reading...

  • post 'Awards chat makes me sick': Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz on new film, The Favourite - 18 December
  • The three stars talk rivalry, royalty, referendums and the depiction of women running the country in their new period drama. Will the script?s filthy language affect their Oscar chances?
    Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone play love rivals in The Favourite, a period romance set in the court of Queen Anne. That?s underselling it: this ain?t your usual corset soap. The script is swearier, the stakes higher. Whoever wins the heart of the bedraggled monarch (Olivia Colman) earns not just a place in her four-poster, but safety, unlimited cake, a palace or two, plus free rein running the country at a time of peasant dissent and war with the French.Off screen, Weisz and Stone are also rivals: both so brilliant in the film ? the former as Lady Sarah, a sexy strategist in the Malcolm Tucker mould; the latter as Abigail, a bracingly aspirational maid with an immaculate accent ? they?re up for the same awards. But that, they nod as one, is the limit of it. Continue reading...
  • post The 50 best films of 2018 in the UK: No 4 ? Loveless - 18 December
  • Andrei Zvyagintsev?s stark drama about a couple?s toxic relationship ? and its catastrophic fallout ? was a passionate dissenting cry from within RussiaSee the rest of the UK countdownMore on the best culture of 2018Andrei Zvyagintsev?s Loveless is a film with a brutally informative adjective for a title. It?s something which applies to the toxic, failed relationship which is at the heart of the drama, but also to everything around the unhappy man and woman, to the very air that they breathe. Modern, aspirational Russia seems in this film to be grasping, unforgiving, a spiritual wasteland of materialism and selfie narcissism, like a distant planet which has lost the means to support life. It is a stark, mysterious, painful film in the high European tradition of Bergman, Antonioni and Haneke.
