Special Review: Ritesh Batra’s Our Souls At Night

15 hours ago | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

A Netflix Original production, Ritesh Batra’s third film is an adaptation of Kent Haruf’s final novel, Our Souls At Night, set in the fictional prairie town of Holt, Colorado.

One evening, Addie Moore (Jane Fonda) pays a visit to her neighbour Louis Waters (Robert Redford), in order to make him a proposition of sorts. Addie wonders if Louis would be interested in coming over to her house and sleeping with her. What Addie is proposing is not sex – long widowed, she’s looking for companionship, the comfort of someone to talk to and sleep next to, and she wonders if Louis might feel the same way.

The two try out this experiment of sorts, much to the amusement and consternation of those around them. The awkwardness of the arrangement is palpable, but as Addie and Louis talk and learn more about each other, an obvious warmth grows between them. »

‘Chappaquiddick’ Moves Out of the Crowded Awards Season — Exclusive

20 October 2017 6:58 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, riding high after the early hit “47 Meters Down,” bought “Chappaquiddick” and “Hostiles” out of Toronto, it looked like they might provide direct competitors for a Best Actor Oscar slot. Now Scott Cooper’s $50-million western “Hostiles,” which earned upbeat reviews and press out of Telluride and Tiff, is heading for a December release and an Oscar campaign for Christian Bale.

Chappaquiddick,” however, will have to wait.

John Curran’s “Chappaquiddick” (a $4 million pickup, with a $16 million P&A) will wisely hold off for a 2018 release on April 6. Jason Clarke would have not only been competing with Bale for a Best Actor slot, but also with himself in Dee Rees’s southern drama “Mudbound” (November 17, Netflix).

A ‘Disaster Artist’ Headshot of James Franco as Tommy Wiseau Can Be All Yours

20 October 2017 3:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Disaster Artist is one of the best films I’ve seen all year, and James Franco is genuinely great as The Room director Tommy Wiseau. It’s a performance that could have easily lapsed into parody and instead Franco gives Wiseau real pathos and heart in addition to being painfully hilarious. However, it’s harder to sell a multi-dimensional performance in ads, so A24 is resting on Franco going Wiseau to sell some tickets. Their latest bit of marketing allows fans to print out a headshot of James Franco as Tommy Wiseau for free right now. I’m … »

20 October 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Call Me by Your Name,” “The Disaster Artist,” and “Hostiles” will serve as the Centerpiece Galas at AFI Fest (November 9–16), the season’s last major film festival. In addition, documentarian Errol Morris will be the subject of a November 11 Tribute following a screening of “Wormwood,” his six-part, semi-scripted Netflix series (out December 15) that stars Peter Sarsgaard as a son investigating his father’s death.

Morris, 69, previously won the Best Documentary Feature Oscar in 2004 for “The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”: October Oscar predictions

20 October 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hot on the heels of the precursor season launching yesterday, I have a brand new set of Academy Award predictions to share with you all. There are some definite changes to be seen, with the most noteworthy being that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is really making a play towards the top of a lot of categories. Martin McDonagh’s film is quietly starting to seem like potentially the frontrunner in Best Picture. That’s just the buzz around town right now, buoyed by how amazing the movie actually is. How that’s handled is just one item on the docket today. Questions will soon be answered, and that’s pretty damn exciting folks. Another thing you’ll likely notice is that I’ve moved The Post and Phantom Thread from predictions for now. They’re just outside of the nominated fields, at least until they either screen, confirm a 2017 release date, »

Gotham Awards Analysis: ‘Get Out’ Is a Serious Awards Season Contender, ‘Wonder Wheel’ Is Shut Out, and More

19 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Gotham Awards aren’t exactly Oscar prognosticators, but a nomination builds early momentum for the long haul ahead; being left out at this stage is not good. Jordan Peele’s box-office hit “Get Out,” which led the field with four nominations (read full nominations list here), affirmed its status as a serious player. So did three hot fall festival contenders that received three nominations each: Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” (A24) and Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name” (Sony Pictures Classics), both upcoming, and Sean Baker’s “The Florida Project” (A24), which is now in limited release.

Gotham Awards Once Again Remind of the Oscar Season Possibilities

19 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s rather wonderful that the New York-based Independent Filmmaker Project is always the one to get the awards season ball rolling with its nominations for the annual Gotham Awards. The organization’s process, recognizing a narrow field of categories decided by separate, tight-knit juries, is unusual, and certainly nowhere near the film Academy’s methodology. So the result is often a breath of fresh air before the inevitable avalanche of traditional fall Oscar fare begins dominating the conversation.

Movies like “Good Time” and “I, Tonya” aren’t likely to bask in the glory of best picture status, for example, but here they’re right at home. Nominations leader “Get Out” can grab more headlines before diving headlong into a season where it’s still an Oscar question mark (and perhaps the most exciting one in a year that promises to be filled with them). These and other critically acclaimed indie dramas like “Call Me by Your Name” and “The Florida Project »
