‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Review: Sofia Coppola, Nicole Kidman Deliver a Southern Gothic Hoot

39 minutes ago

There’s a moment about an hour into Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” when you just know that things are about to get lurid. Until then, her version of the book that also produced a 1971 potboiler starring Clint Eastwood has been relatively restrained – more slow burn than hysterical, all mood and menace instead of melodrama. But then Colin Farrell, playing a wounded Union soldier who’s been taken in by a girl’s seminary in Virginia during the waning years of the Civil War, beds one of the girls and incurs the wrath of a couple of others … and gets pushed. »

If there was a contest for picking on children, Tyra Banks would probably take first prize. Or, at least, that’s the suggestion of a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims that her daughter was physically manipulated and verbally abused by “AGT” host Banks. In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, the woman — identified as Jane Doe in the suit — claims that she and her husband auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” in New York in January, performing a song about motherhood, which “held a certain long-term emotional importance” to her minor daughter, identified in. »

‘Can You Forgive Her?’ Theater Review: Amber Tamblyn Copes With Extreme Student Debt

7 hours ago

The most fascinating character in Gina Gionfriddo’s new play, “Can You Forgive Her?,” doesn’t show up until about two-thirds of the way through. One could debate over whether Gionfriddo has written a great role in David, who’s paying to keep one woman while living with another woman he never sleeps with (except for appearances), or if the magnificent actor Frank Wood just makes him look great. Judging from the Off Broadway production that opened Tuesday at the Vineyard Theatre, it’s no doubt an inspired combination of the two. Wood  brings an off-center gravitas to a shaggy-dog story desperately in. »

Manchester Terror Attack Exposes Concert Venues’ ‘Achilles Heel’

8 hours ago

Despite major advancements in counter-terrorism since 9/11, Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester, England, which killed at least 22 people and injured dozens, serves as a stark reminder of just how difficult it is to defend large venues, experts say. Unlike the 2015 Bataclan attack in Paris, where 90 people lost their lives during the Eagles Of Death Metal show, the Manchester bombing occurred just outside the front doors of the Manchester Arena as concertgoers were leaving the venue in droves. “Areas outside the perimeter remain a concern,” Brian Levin, terrorism expert and director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism told TheWrap. »

Showrunners Share the Worst Advice They’ve Gotten and Best Advice They Give

9 hours ago

Joe Pokaski, the co-creator of “Underground,” has no trouble remembering the worst advice he got about his Underground Railroad drama. “We sat in front of somebody, who was the brother of somebody else. He actually said, which will be the title of a book someday, ‘I haven’t read your script, but I know how to fix it,'” Pokaski said. That kind of unhelpful advice was not on display Monday as a panel of top drama showrunners gathered for TheWrap’s Emmy-season screening series. Pokaski and his “Underground” co-showrunner Misha Green, sat alongside Eric Newman of Netflix’s  “Narcos, »

The Netflix Original show “13 Reasons Why” has drawn a lot of conversation for its nuanced treatment of suicide, high school relationships, and the way people treat each other as they’re growing up.

‘Rodin’ Cannes Review: It’s Got Art and Sex, But Where’s the Passion?

9 hours ago

Some films come to Cannes as no-brainers, clearly deserving of their berth sight unseen. (Good or bad, this year’s work from Michael Haneke, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Todd Haynes and Ruben Ostlund probably fit in that category.) And some films come to Cannes and face a skeptical audience that wants to see proof that they belong on the Croisette. It’s safe to say that Jacques Doillon’s “Rodin” arrived at Cannes on Tuesday in the latter category. And at best, the honorable, old-fashioned biopic might skate by for being a throwback at a 70th anniversary festival that’s making a »

Frontline’s ‘Bannon’s War’ Explores His Fascination With Destruction

10 hours ago

On this season of “Saturday Night Life,” White House strategist Steve Bannon has appeared as the Grim Reaper. There’s a lot of comic license there, but one of the people interviewed for Frontline’s new film, “Bannon’s War,” says his interest in destruction is real. Frontline notes that before Bannon worked in the White House, he made a film about a supposedly imminent apocalyptic war called “Generation Zero.” “There’s an almost fetishistic desire to see everything blow up,” The Washington Post’s Ann Hornaday tells Frontline in the clip, above.
