American Woman Trailer Sends Sienna Miller Searching for Her Missing Daughter

Roadside Attractions has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming thriller American Woman. We're about to hit the summer movie season. In some ways, we already have, with Avengers: Endgame currently tearing it up at the box office and with Detective Pikachu set to arrive this upcoming weekend. Indeed, the time for big studio blockbusters is upon us. But that doesn't mean a few smaller movies aren't going to be coming our way during that time as well. Sure, they may run the risk of slipping through the cracks and getting lost in the shuffle, though, maybe they shouldn't. Such might be the case with this particular movie, which stars Sienna Miller in a very dramatic turn.

This first trailer is giving off some serious Gone Girl vibes. Though, we're focused on a single mom who loses her daughter via mysterious circumstances, as opposed to Ben Affleck losing his wife.

‘American Woman’ Trailer: Sienna Miller Goes on a Decade-Long Journey in Crime Drama

‘American Woman’ Trailer: Sienna Miller Goes on a Decade-Long Journey in Crime Drama
One part whodunnit, one part character drama, Jake Scott’s “American Woman” follows its eponymous leading lady over the course of a decade, one marked by heartbreak and a terrible crime. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, where Miller’s performance earned her some of the best reviews of her career yet.

The film picks up as Miller’s Deb Callahan approaches her mid-thirties in a poor Rust Belt town, mixed up in a life that’s already been marred by some terrible choices. Deb is barely holding things together, from her thankless job as a supermarket cashier to her ill-advised romance with a local married man, and her teenage daughter Bridget (Sky Ferreira) seems doomed to repeat her mom’s mistakes. As the two Callahan women try to carve out a better life for Bridget’s own baby, tragedy strikes when Bridget goes missing.

‘Field of Dreams’ Turns 30: Why the Baseball Classic Still Holds a Special Place in America’s Hearts (and Heartland)

‘Field of Dreams’ Turns 30: Why the Baseball Classic Still Holds a Special Place in America’s Hearts (and Heartland)
Humphrey Bogart never said, “Play it again, Sam” in the 1942 Oscar-winning classic “Casablanca.” In fact, no one says it in the movie.

And the mysterious voice in the adored 1989 fantasy film “Field of Dreams” does not tell Kevin Costner: “If you build it, they will come.”

Released 30 years ago on April 21, 1989, “Field of Dreams” stars Kevin Costner and Amy Madigan as Ray and Annie Kinsella, a couple raising corn on a bucolic Iowa farm with a young daughter, played by Gaby Hoffman, who went on to star in “Transparent.”

At dusk one evening, Ray hears a voice saying “If you build it, he will come.”

But according to the film’s writer/director Phil Alden Robinson, there is a whole group of people who insist it’s “they.”

“It’s called the Mandela effect — people who swear they’ve seen something that really didn’t happen,” noted Robinson.

Or in this case,

Ashanti works hard for her slim figure, but the singer is all about occasionally straying from her usual diet to enjoy her favorite foods.

The actress, who currently stars in the musical film Stuck, tells People that “to have balance, you have to eat clean and you have to work out,” but also, “you have to allow yourself at least two cheat days so that it doesn’t become too strict.”

Ashanti usually follows a pescatarian diet, something she decided to try at the encouragement of her sister, Kenashia Douglas.

Film Review: ‘Stuck’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Stuck’
A stalled New York City subway carriage serves as a toe-tapping musical Petri dish for six socioeconomically diverse souls in the unique stage-to-screen musical adaptation “Stuck.” Sharing a stylistic template with its 2016 left-coast cousin “La La Land” (which it predated Off-Broadway by a good four years), the film’s 2017 copyright suggests a missed opportunity for momentum that could be made up by the positive word-of-mouth (generated by the film’s fest-circuit delay) for a modest achievement that benefits from a lot of heart and not being like anything else out there.

“I bring a measure of grace to the world,” says Shakespeare-spouting homeless philosopher Lloyd, a dishevelled yet dignified Greek chorus who sets the stage in song: “It’s a common notion that the universe will shove together people who uniquely offer what the other needs.”

With that, the train on which he seems to live grinds to a halt.

First Trailer for 'Stuck' Musical About People Stuck on a NYC Subway

"We're just trying to get to where we're going..." Eammon Films has debuted an official trailer for an indie musical film titled Stuck, which originally premiered at a few smaller film festivals back in 2017. Based on a play by Riley Thomas, the film is about six strangers who get stuck on a New York City subway together and change each others lives in unexpected ways. This is definitely a theater concept, but adapted for the big screen and brought to life with a few vibrant and uplifting performances. This looks charming and inspiring, in all the ways Broadway can be. Starring Giancarlo Esposito (seriously singing his heart out), plus Amy Madigan, Ashtanti, Omar Chaparro, Arden Cho, & Gerard Canonico.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Cast, Story and Everything to Know

Joseph Baxter May 20, 2019

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels continues the supernatural legacy of the original Showtime series, shifting its setting to 1930s Los Angeles.

Penny Dreadful may have been a beloved, star-studded peak television offering that closed up shop after just three seasons, but the classic-literature-crossover Showtime supernatural series will continue its legacy with a sequel series. The premium cable channel dropped major details back in November about a follow-up series, titled Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.

While the sequel series makes a dramatic shift away from the settings and characters of 2014-2016’s Penny Dreadful, it will have the support of its key personnel, namely creator John Logan, who returns to serve as writer and executive producer, joined in the latter capacity by Michael Aguilar, who's worked on recent Showtime offerings Kidding and I’m Dying Up Here.

Film Review: ‘A Crooked Somebody’

Film Review: ‘A Crooked Somebody’
So many VOD-centric dramas call to mind the direct-to-video Blockbuster fodder of yesteryear that it’s actually refreshing to come across one that’s more reminiscent of a cleverly plotted TV-movie from primetime of the 1970s. It’s quite easy to imagine “A Crooked Somebody” airing as an “ABC Movie of the Week” during the Polyester Era with, say, Monte Markham and Robert Culp doing yeoman service in the lead roles and a good 20 minutes or so shaven from the narrative to allow for commercial breaks. On the other hand, it’s even easier to simply enjoy it as a satisfyingly crafted entertainment that doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, but does take a few surprising detours from well-trodden genre paths.

Rich Sommer (of TV’s “Mad Men”) hits all the right notes on a scale ranging from smooth operator to desperate prevaricator as Michael Vaughn, a minor league
