Toronto Film Review: ‘Endings, Beginnings’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Endings, Beginnings’
There’s nothing tidy about Daphne’s love life — and if there were, she probably wouldn’t make a very compelling character. Daphne, who is played by Shailene Woodley in what is simultaneously her most realistic and least accessible performance yet, recently broke up with her boyfriend, moving back into her sister’s pool house. That split had something to do with a drunken one-night stand. And now, though she’s sworn herself to six months of sobriety and celibacy, Daphne can’t deny her attraction to two totally different guys, Jack (Jamie Dornan) and Frank (Sebastian Stan), who just so happen to be best friends.

This movie — whose title, “Endings, Beginnings,” is cutesily withheld until just before the credits roll — is like the mumblecore version of “The Philadelphia Story,” wherein Katharine Hepburn sleeps with both suitors, discovers she’s pregnant by one of them and winds up “Bringing Up Baby

Debra Winger movies: 10 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Terms of Endearment,’ ‘Urban Cowboy’
Happy birthday to the great Oscar-nominated Debra Winger who turns 64 on May 16, 2019. One of the most enigmatic actresses of her generation, Winger burst onto the film scene in 1980 with “Urban Cowboy” and in the course of the next three years, she was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards as well as two Oscar nominations (for “Officer” and “Terms”). To many female moviegoers in particular, Winger embodied the kind of tough, self-sufficient woman that they aspired to become, yet there was always room within Winger’s characters for love with the right person.

Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette Aren't the First Stars to Tie at the Critics' Choice Awards
While watching the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday night, audiences were likely prepared to see a number of things typical of award season: cheesy jokes from the host, triumphant acceptance speeches, and red carpet gowns so stunning, it was hard not to audibly gasp. But one very unique occurrence happened when it came time to award the trophy for best actress in a movie made for television or limited series - it was a tie!

Presenters and Schitt's Creek costars Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara opened the envelope to reveal the winners and took a moment to look appropriately shocked before O'Hara excitedly yelled out, "It's a tie!" No, this wasn't another awkward Moonlight/La La Land situation - Amy Adams won for her role in Sharp Objects, while Patricia Arquette also won for Escape at Dannemora.

Venice 2018: First Man, Peterloo, The Favourite, Roma, The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs and Suspiria by Damon Wise

First Man: 'Death is at every corner' Photo: Universal Pictures

Venice has known feast and famine over the years, but the slim pickings of 2008, when only The Wrestler, The Hurt Locker and Rachel Getting Married saved the event from total oblivion, seem a long time ago now. Nevertheless, newcomers at the world’s oldest film festival should be warned that it’s not every year you get a new Coen brothers movie, or a Lanthimos, or a Cuarón, or all three in just two days.

The excitement began with the announcement of the festival’s opening film, First Man by Damien Chazelle, who opened here two years ago with his instant Oscar contender La La Land. Funnily, enough though a one-two like this is pretty hard to pull off, Chazelle was not quite received as a returning hero; the film has had positive reviews and tweets, but critics privately grumbled among themselves,

Oscar Experts have Timothee Chalamet and Sam Elliott nearly neck and neck in supporting actor race

Oscar Experts have Timothee Chalamet and Sam Elliott nearly neck and neck in supporting actor race
It won’t be long until “A Star Is Born,” a remake of the evergreen showbiz tale, takes it bow at the Venice film festival that kicked off this week. Meanwhile,“Beautiful Boy,” based on a memoir about a young man’s struggle with meth addiction seen through the eyes of his father, is to be unveiled at the Toronto International Film Festival next week.

Seven Gold Derby Experts favor the latter film’s Timothee Chalamet for the Best Supporting Actor award. Last year’s Oscar It boy for his love-struck lead performance in “Call Me by Your Name” lost to Gary Oldman’s unforgettable immersion into Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” But being a substance abuser, whether it’s Nicolas Cage in “Leaving Las Vegas,” Anne Hathaway in “Rachel Getting Married “or Denzel Washington in “Flight,” is one of the surefire ways to prove to academy voters how committed you are to a role.

ShortList 2018: Why ‘Night Shift’ Director Spent a Lot of Time in La Bathrooms (Video)
Marshall Tyler became an “expert” on Los Angeles bathrooms when searching for the perfect place to set his story about a dream deferred.

“I must have gone to at least 15 or 20 around L.A.,” said Tyler, whose short “Night Shift” is a finalist in TheWrap’s 2018 ShortList Film Festival. “I’d go to the bathroom at an event or restaurant and all I could think about was if the space could work for the film.”

In “Night Shift,” the space serves as another character interacting with Oliver “Olly” Jefferies (played by Tunde Adebimpe of “Rachel Getting Married”), an aspiring actor stuck working as a nightclub bathroom attendant.

Russell Simmons 'Vehemently' Denies Rape and Sexual Misconduct Allegations in New Statement

The 60-year-old music mogul defended himself on Wednesday against a new New York Times piece, which includes allegations that he raped three women.

This full statement followed:

"I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual.

I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women; and I have enormous respect for the women's movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power.

‘House of Cards,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘Today Show’ and More: A Complete Guide To TV Rocked By Sexual Harassment Scandals

  • Indiewire
Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals have had an immediate effect on the industry — and on TV viewers as well. As networks and studios are confronted with allegations of misconduct and assault by their stars, producers, and even executives, heightened publicity has also prevented them from sweeping such news under the rug.

Instead, from morning to primetime, broadcast, cable and streaming services have been faced with making big moves on some of their biggest properties. In the $1 billion morning show competition, both NBC’s “Today” and CBS’ “This Morning” fired key anchors. Netflix’s and Amazon’s signature, award-winning dramas are expected to return without their lead stars. Paramount Network planned to launch by leveraging the Weinstein brand — but that strategy is dead. And FX must now rebuild its comedy brand without the producer who inspired much of it.

Here’s a continually updated roundup of TV productions that have been
