Exclusive Interview – The Keeper actors David Kross and Freya Mavor talk humour, horror and kickabouts on set

George Nash sits down with David Kross and Freya Mavor, stars of the upcoming biographical drama The Keeper, ahead of the film’s forthcoming UK release…

Unless you’re a die-hard Manchester City fan, the name Bert Trautmann probably doesn’t mean a great deal. A former German soldier and British Pow, Trautmann went on to make over 500 appearances between the sticks for the Sky Blues throughout the 1950s and ’60s — etching his name firmly into football folklore after famously playing the final 15 minutes of the 1956 Fa Cup final with a broken neck. The Keeper, a British-German co-production directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller, tells his story. But it’s one about more than just a talented goalkeeper: this is a true tale of love and loss, of animosity and acceptance, with a heart as sweet as half-time oranges.

Official Trailer for Ritesh Batra's Charming 'Photograph' Set in Mumbai

"Life is so unpredictable, my child." Amazon Studios has debuted the official trailer for the charming indie drama Photograph, the latest movie from one of my favorite directors - Ritesh Batra. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and it also showed at the Berlin Film Festival. Batra takes us back to India to tell a story of two strangers in Mumbai, Rafi and Miloni, who meet one day when Rafi decides to take her photo near the Gateway of India. At first he convinces her to pose as his fiancee to satisfy his grandmother's wishes, but the two develop a different relationship. I wrote a very nice review of this film at Sundance which is quoted in this trailer. It's a very light, but undeniably uplifting, soul-stirring film, showing how important connections can be. The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanya Malhotra, and ...

Sundance 2019: Ritesh Batra's Lovely, Heartwarming Film 'Photograph'

Not everything is about falling in love, and being physical. Sometimes just spending time with someone can mean more than anything, and remind us we're not always alone. I adore Indian filmmaker Ritesh Batra's films about the random connections that mean the most to us. His sweet, touching storytelling lets emotions build through the moments and interactions - not just dialogue or story beats. Photograph is Batra's latest film after making two English-language features which were his follow-up films to his breakout hit The Lunchbox (which I fell in love with at Telluride 2013). Batra goes back to his roots for this film, telling a story about a friendship between two quiet people in Mumbai, India. Batra's Photograph is a film that will warm your heart. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Rafi, a humble street photographer snapping tourist photos at the Gateway of India in Mumbai, living in a tiny shack with friends.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Photograph’

  • Variety
Sundance Film Review: ‘Photograph’
Six years after the international crossover success of “The Lunchbox,” along comes “Photograph” to prove, whatever Thomas Wolfe may think, that you can go home again. Writer-director Ritesh Batra’s first Indian film since his debut feature has the same quiet streak of wistful sentimentality that made “The Lunchbox” so globally beloved — and, for that matter, the same softly-softly humanity found in his two subsequent English-language efforts, “The Sense of an Ending” and “Our Souls at Night.” Whether roaming the streets of Mumbai or the plains of Colorado, Batra’s filmmaking has remained markedly consistent in tone and texture: You’d be hard pressed to find anyone making nicer films in world cinema right now.

That’s an easy quality to underrate, as is the modest but careful craftsmanship and muted but honest performance style that makes “Photograph” — a film itself about the rewards of patiently building on first impressions — a winsome diversion.

First Trailer For BBC's Adaptation of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders with John Malkovich

BBC has released the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders. The three-part limited series stars John Malkovich in the role of Hercule Poirot and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) as Inspector Crome.

The series looks really good. Malkovich adds his own interesting flavor to the character Hercule Poirot, and I like it.

The story is set in the 1930's, which is "a time when the nation is dangerously divided, with suspicion and hatred on the rise. In the midst of this tension, Poirot faces a serial killer known only as ‘A.B.C.’ First the killer strikes in Andover, then Bexhill. As the murder count rises, the only clue is the copy of the ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot’s investigations are thwarted at every turn by an enemy determined to outsmart him.

2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #66. Ritesh Batra – Photograph

Post The Lunchbox fame (his well traveled Film Fest favorite which was also shown at Sundance in 2014), Ritesh Batra hit a creative cluster mark with Our Souls at Night (starring Robert Redford), The Sense of an Ending (read review) and the soon to be released Photograph.
