The Only Living Boy In New York [2017] Trailer


Thomas is feeling disillusioned by the bright city lights of New York following his college graduation. He's looking for something special, and he hopes he can find it in his friend Mimi Pastori. The only problem is, she only loves him as a friend and he wants more than that. That becomes the least of his worries, however, when he sees his father kissing a mysterious woman who, needless to say, isn't his mother. He follows the woman, who is named Johanna, and finds himself embroiled in a strange love triangle. Johanna seduces him and he becomes enchanted by her, though his feelings for her are obviously tainted by her involvement with his father. To make matters more complicated, Mimi is now seemingly jealous of Thomas' new love interest, and she has her own reservations about it. Thankfully, Thomas does at least have someone to talk to about it, but is his new neighbour W.F. Gerald really the best person to give him advice?

A Quiet Passion Review

Very Good

British writer-director Terence Davies (The Deep Blue Sea) is an expert at digging beneath the surfaces of his stories and characters. So it's especially intriguing to see him take on a biopic about the enigmatic American poet Emily Dickinson. Like her writing, the film has a moody, dry exterior that conceals a fiendishly sharp wit. It's also an unusually smart film, combining emotional resonance with brainy conversation, even as it moves at a glacial pace.

It's set in 19th century Massachusetts, where Emily (young Emma Bell, then Cynthia Nixon) grows up in a fiercely religious household. But then, everyone in this community is devout to the point of distraction, and no one knows what to do about Emily's unusually outspoken thoughts. The way she speaks about her faith horrifies her parents (Keith Carradine and Joanna Bacon), even though they raised Emily and her siblings Vinnie and Austin (Jennifer Ehle and Duncan Duff) to think for themselves. As Emily begins publishing her poems anonymously, she also challenges the role of women in this society, where they're expected to be little more than decoration. So it's no wonder that the plain-speaking new arrival Vryling (Catherine Bailey) catches her attention.

The film covers the final decades in Emily's life, punctuating scenes with her evocative, often disturbing poetry. Davies keeps the period details crisp and unfussy, using period photographs to great effect, such as in the striking sequence that traces the American Civil War. That said, the Dickinson family's life seems like little more than a sequence of nasty diseases and personal conflicts, which isn't easy to stick with. Thankfully, Nixon brings an alertness to Emily that catches the imagination, and her connection with Ehle's Vinnie is lively and engaging. These two women are inquisitive and sharp, in stark contrast to the gloomy people around them.

A Quiet Passion Trailer


Nineteenth-century American poet Emily Dickinson might be well known now for her classic catalogue of work, but when she was alive she was elusive to most. As much as she was always a bright, intelligent and well-behaved child, as she grew older she disappointed her father Edward by refusing to marry or give herself to the church. Instead, she preferred her own company; shutting herself inside and becoming so reclusive and reluctant of guests that she was noticed by many. She shared few friendships in her lifetime, and even those she had - like that with sister-in-law Susan Gilbert - were wrought with pain and uncertainty. She was the victim of a number of bereavements in her lifetime, experiences that would have a massive effect on her health and her later popular literary work.

James White Trailer


James White is in his twenties and struggling to cope with the stresses that life keeps throwing at him. His mother Gail is seriously ill, and while he's happy to be there for her, he is desperate for some time away from New York to re-evaluate his life. Unfortunately, his vacation just turns into a whirlwind of self-destruction; indulging in more drugs, drink and generally less than honorable behaviour than ever before. He insists that his return will bring some real changes in his life, he might even get a job, but it's clear to his family and the people who he meets along the way that he's got a long way to go before he can take adulthood by the horns and learn some responsibility. He needs the love of his mother right now, but he's too terrified at the thought that she might leave him any day.

Sarah Jessica Parker Kim Cattrall Cynthia Nixon Kristin Davis

Could Carrie Bradshaw soon be back on the big screen? Well maybe, as Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest Instagram post has fuelled rumours that a third 'Sex and the City' movie has begun shooting. But before we get too excited there’s some detective work to be done, as realistically Parker’s post is more likely to be about her SJP shoe collection rather than stepping into Carrie’s Manolos for a third time.

Sarah Jessica ParkerSarah Jessica Parker starred as Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO series and on the big screen.

Rumours regarding Sex And The City 3 started when the actress posted a picture of herself leaving Bloomingdales on New York’s Fifth Avenue carrying a ‘medium brown bag’ with the caption, ‘Well. I guess the cat's out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then.’

Appearing on the chat show 'Watch What Happens Live!' last Thursday (30 April), Cynthia Nixon was asked by host Andy Cohen to suggest which 'Sex and the City' characters a variety of famous faces would be.

But who does Cynthia think would make a good Miranda, the feisty lawyer she played in the popular HBO series? She reckons Hillary Clinton, Lena Dunham and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would all be a good fit. And then there's Gandhi, who would be - who else - Mr Big, according to Cynthia.
