Diane Keaton Identified With Her Character's Fear


Diane Keaton

In the film Hampstead, Diane Keaton plays a woman struggling with debts left by her late husband as she befriends Donald (Brendan Gleeson), a homeless man living in a shack nearby. "It's a really good story," Keaton says, "about that certain point in your life when you feel that nothing will ever change for you, that you're stuck forever, that you're older and you don't really have any use in this world. But then you address those issues you didn't want to address and stop being afraid."

She feels that these themes helped her sympathise with her character. "I do identify with Emily in a sense of being a coward," Keaton says. "She's kind of a coward in the beginning. She doesn't tell the truth. It's easy for me to identify with her problems because they're the problems that I feel I also have. She's a modified version of me!"

Finding Dory Review

Very Good

It's been 13 years since the release of the Disney/Pixar hit Finding Nemo, and filmmaker Andrew Stanton has opted to make a spin-off instead of a direct sequel, shifting the perspective to recount the life story of the forgetful blue tang. Because it centres on a personal quest, it's a very different style of movie, which makes some of the action feel rather contrived. But the characters are still vivid and likeable, and it's packed with meaningful themes.

 

The film opens with young Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) being taught by her parents (Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy) how to cope with her short-term memory problem. But she still gets lost. Then years later, after her adventure teaming up with Marlin (Albert Brooks) to help find his son Nemo (Hayden Rolence), she has a brief spark of memory and decides to find her family. Accompanied by Marlin and Nemo, Dory crosses the ocean to a California marine sanctuary, where they get separated. Dory gets help from cranky seven-tentacled Octopus Hank (Ed O'Neill), the perky whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson) and a befuddled beluga whale (Ty Burrell). Meanwhile, Marlin and Nemo meet a pair of laddish sea lions (Idris Elba and Dominic West).

Finding Dory Trailer


Since Nemo and his father were reunited, the residents living in the coral off the great barrier reef have been the best of friends but Dory keeps on finding herself questioning her past. Now, everyone's favourite forgetful fish is about to set out on a mission to find her own parents. 

As Nemo and Marlin are both all too aware of Dory's lack of oceanly experience, they feel that accompanying her on her mission is the only way to make sure she's safe. The two little clown fish and the blue tang soon find themselves in water that they're unfamiliar with. 

Dory's search takes her to new locations outside of the ocean too, whilst at the Monterey Marine Life Institute the forgetful fish meets up with some friends - new and old.

Love The Coopers (aka Christmas With The Coopers) Review

Very Good

This may look like it's going to be a zany Christmas romp, but it's really a warm exploration of family connections, essentially an American take on Love Actually's multi-strand comedy-drama. At least it has an unusually strong cast and moments of hilarity scattered throughout the story. And while it's never very deep, the themes are strongly resonant.

The Cooper family is gathering for what Charlotte (Diane Keaton) hopes will be one last perfect Christmas together. She knows that her 40-year marriage to Sam (John Goodman) is on the brink, but is ignoring that to plan a massive dinner. Their son Hank (Ed Helms) is stinging from divorce and unemployment, while daughter Eleanor (Olivia Wilde) has picked up a hunky soldier (Jake Lacy) in the airport and asks him to pose as her boyfriend so her family will stop asking about her love life. Meanwhile, Charlotte's father Bucky (Alan Arkin) is trying to cheer up his favourite waitress (Amanda Seyfried), and Charlotte's sister Emma (Marisa Tomei) is delayed when a cop (Anthony Mackie) arrests her for shoplifting.

Narrated with wry joviality by Steve Martin, the interwoven stories are fairly simplistic, but each touches a raw nerve. And the above-average cast brings out the underlying themes without overplaying their scenes. Keaton and Goodman add subtle shades to the slightly undemanding central roles, while Arkin finds a couple of new textures to his usual twinkly grandad persona. Helms and Wilde strike the right balance in their intriguingly unlikeable roles, while Tomei gets the most complex character as a woman who feels like she's merely watched her life drift along. By contrast, the outsiders played by Seyfried, Lacy and Mackie are much less defined, but each actor brings just enough magnetic energy. The most wasted performer is June Squibb, as a ditzy old aunt who's little more than the requisite gross-out relative.

Finding Dory - Teaser Trailer


Dory, everyones favourite forgetful fish from Finding Nemo is back and it looks like she might have finally remembered something! In the long-awaited follow-up to the 2003 animated classic, Dory takes center stage as she sets off on an adventure of a lifetime, with some familiar friends in tow.

Set six months after Finding Nemo, amnesiac blue tang Dory is suffering from a case of sleep swimming that leads her to a life-changing revelation. For the first time in her life, Dory begins to recall her childhood memories and even her long-lost parents.

With a faint recollection of something about "the jewel of Monterey, California”, Dory sets out to finally find her family, accompanied by her friend Nemo and his father Marlin. Travelling to the Monterey Marine Life Institute, Dory soon finds some new companions, Bailey, a white beluga whale, Destiny, a whale shark and Hank the octopus, who become her guides as she sets out to discover her past.

This week has been a rough time to live on Earth in general, but the raw wound is still the horrific attack that took place in Paris. Even the stars walking the Golden Globes red carpet had to acknowledge the tragedy and show support.

Many of them did so by wearing the Je Suis Charlie slogan on their arrival at the show. Amal Clooney said that she was wearing Dior, "customized in solidarity with the French people who've gone through a terrible week," according to Elle magazine. A "Je suis Charlie" badge was displayed on her purse, while her husband, George Clooney, also wore a similar button, according to ABC News.

Diane Keaton Toasts Woody Allen At Golden Globes, While The Farrows Sharpen Their Pitchforks


Woody Allen Diane Keaton Mia Farrow Ronan Farrow Emma Stone

With all the news headlines that came out of that fateful Golden Globes night last Sunday, Woody Allen’s tribute and Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award could have gone largely unnoticed. The filmmaker wasn’t at the award show to pick it up in person, so instead Allen’s longtime collaborator Diane Keaton accepted it on his behalf, toasting her friendship with Allen. In her brief speech, Keaton said their 45-year friendship fills her heart with "pride, affection and even love."

Diane Keaton
The Annie Hall star heaped praise on the director, who kickstarted her career.

In the end though, it wasn’t the tribute or Keaton’s speech that drew the most media attention. On Monday, news websites were flooded with headlines about Allen’s family –ex-wife Mia Farrow and Allen’s son, journalist Ronan Farrow.

The Big Wedding Review


Good

An all-star cast very nearly goes down with the ship as filmmaker Justin Zackham (The Bucket List) indulges in relentlessly farcical silliness. Thankfully the actors play it relatively straight, injecting moments of dark emotion and sharp wit in between the corny wackiness. But the script is more interested in humiliating its characters than finding any genuine humour.

The eponymous nuptials are between Alejandro and Missy (Barnes and Seyfried), who haplessly watch their families implode as the big day approaches. Alejandro's adoptive dad Don (De Niro) and his long-time girlfriend Bebe (Sarandon) are planning the event, but Alejandro's deeply religious birth-mother (Rae) is coming from Colombia, so he asks his dad to pretend to still be married to his ex-wife Ellie (Keaton). Meanwhile, Alejandro's sister Lyla (Heigl) is having her own marriage crisis, while his brother Jared (Grace) can't keep his libido under control.

As the preparations continue, the plot gets increasingly tangled. But it also becomes strangely ingrown, as if these people have never met anyone outside their small circle of family and friends. Past secrets are revealed and dark peccadillos come to light, leading to a series of manic confrontations. Through it all, the film remains blandly amusing, although its rather extreme moments never quite escalate to Meet the Parents hilarity. Thankfully they avoid the strained goofiness of Death at a Funeral

Continue reading: The Big Wedding Review

The Big Wedding Trailer


Don and Ellie have been divorced for a long time but when their adopted son Alejandro and his fiancé Missy decide to get married, it looks to be time for a family reunion. If things weren't awkward enough with Ellie seeing that her best friend Bebe from years ago is now married to her ex-husband, Alejandro's biological mother has also decided to fly over from Columbia for the occasion. However, she happens to be an extremely devout catholic with the belief that divorce is a sin so the family's only resolution to appease her and make her feel that giving away her son was the right decision is for Don and Ellie to pretend that they are still married on the big day, to Bebe's resentment. As expected, things are not as straight forward as they planned and the days leading up to the nuptials couldn't possibly be more tense and disastrous for this unusual family.

This ridiculous though rather touching comedy has been based on the French movie 'Mon Frère Se Marie' written by Jean-Stéphane Bron and Karine Sudan and is the wonderful story of how broken families can mend or, at least, unite for their mutual relatives when it is a matter of importance. It has been directed and written by Justin Zackham ('Going Greek', 'The Bucket List') and is set to be released on May 31st 2013 in the UK.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, Megan Ketch, Greg Paul, Christa Campbell, David Rasche, Christine Ebersole, Kyle Bornheimer,

Morning Glory Review


Very Good
A snappy script helps make this rather goofy comedy much more enjoyable than it should be. And it also helps that the film is extremely well-cast, and that it has some pointed things to say.

Becky (McAdams) is an ambitious young TV producer who has always dreamed of working for NBC's Today show. After being sacked from her job at a local New Jersey station, she finds work at low-rated network programme Daybreak. Sparky anchor Colleen (Keaton) gives Becky a run for her money in the energy stakes, and when Becky lands jaded veteran reporter Mike (Ford) as cohost, things start to get messy. Soon her boss (Goldblum) tells her that the show will be cancelled if ratings don't improve drastically. So Becky takes drastic action.

Surrender Dorothy (2006) Review


Good
A Diane Keaton star vehicle produced as a made-for-cable original, Surrender Dorothy is a pleasure for fans of the always interesting Keaton even if its roots as a chick-of-a-certain-age-lit novel sometimes show through.

As a group of 30-ish friends gather Big Chill style for a month in the Hamptons, they can't know tragedy awaits. The core of the group is the enchanting Sara (Alex Davalos), the lifelong muse of her best friend, gay writer Adam (Tom Everett Scott), who shows up with his boyfriend Shawn (Chris Pine). Also in the group: Sara's school chums, Maddy (Lauren German) and her husband Peter (Josh Hopkins), along with their new baby.

Hanging Up Review


OK
There's just something really screwy about a family like the Ephrons.

A pair of sisters (Nora and Delia) collectively control the purse strings of many a woman and hold they keys to the heart of the modern romantic through two movies: Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. Nora Ephron (along with Meg Ryan), redefined delis and male-female interaction with 1989's When Harry Met Sally.... Both are the daughters of a screenwriting duo, children of The Industry, and have become higher-level powerbrokers than their parents ever were with a string of well publicized hits and soon forgotten misses that formed a winning streak that lasted up until now.

The Godfather: Part II Review


Extraordinary
The inimitable Godfather story continues in The Godfather Part II.

Unlike many critics, I don't feel the sequel has the weight of the original -- many feel it to be better than the first film -- but it certainly is a necessary and extremely good follow-up, adding a wealth of information about "the family" that only serves to enhance the experience of the original movie. The problem, of course, is how could you measure up to The Godfather? The truly memorable scenes from the series -- the spilling cart of oranges, the horse's head, Michael's vengeance in the Italian restaurant, "an offer he couldn't refuse" -- are all found in the original, not here (or at best, they are simply repeated in the sequel). Godfather 2's most memorable moments -- the Senator's private meeting with Michael ("My offer is this: Nothing."), the denouement of Fredo -- pale in comparison. Well, not exactly pale, but you can't say that Godfather 2 is as good as Numero Uno.

The First Wives Club Review


Very Good
The biggest crowd-pleaser of the year is upon us -- the powerhouse trio of Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton foisting their womanness on us with a vengeance. Sure to revive the debate over whether films like this are "man hating," The First Wives Club is, in reality, a harmless big screen sitcom that actually manages to appeal to a large audience.

Rambling through its first 30 minutes with no real direction, The First Wives Club eventually turns into a story about three old friends who want to exact vengeance on their wayward ex-husbands. Elise (Hawn) is an aging movie star, obsessed, as most aging movie stars are, about her looks. Brenda (Midler) is a bitter ex-housewife who loves her son and bemoans her lack of funds to support him -- and hasn't changed her hair since 1969. Annie (Keaton) is basically a middle-aged version of Annie Hall, only now she has a lesbian daughter and an intrusive mother, and Woody Allen is nowhere to be seen.

Diane Keaton Defends Her Topless Post-Mastectomy Sex Scene


Diane Keaton Craig T Nelson

'The Godfather' actress Diane Keaton is due to make a brave and shocking appearance in 'The Family Stone', by filming a sex scene with a fake mastectomy. In the film, Keaton portrays Sybil Stone, a survivor of breast cancer. She agreed to film one of the scenes topless, showing off a fake surgical breast removal - reportedly in order to support real-life cancer fighters.

This confrontation came after Keaton revealed her hatred for the ways in which these scenes have been approached in the past.

Something's Gotta Give Review


OK

While blessed with entertaining performances and uncommon earnestness (for a Hollywood movie) about the tribulations of middle-aged romance, there's something a little too artificial about "Something's Gotta Give."

Taking place largely in a Hamptons beach house (that is quite obviously a soundstage) where a divorcee playwright (Diane Keaton) has been duped into acting as nurse to an aging playboy (Jack Nicholson) after he's had a heart attack while fooling around with her flighty daughter (Amanda Peet), the film's snappy sense of humor is all too often undercut by affected romantic chemistry and by the overuse of facile cinematic conventions, like musical montages of characters laughing, talking and drinking wine while the camera circles them in the candlelight.

As written and directed by Nancy Meyers ("What Women Want," "The Parent Trap" remake), the unlikely love story that forms between Nicholson (who prefers "the complete, uncomplicated satisfaction of the younger woman") and Keaton (who has been adjusting to independence and getting over old-fashioned notions of spinsterhood) is a source of sophisticated laughs -- with the occasional low-brow guffaw thrown in for good measure (say, Nicholson's posterior peeking out of a hospital gown).
