Freeheld Is Important For Moore And Page


Ellen Page Julianne Moore

In 2002 Laurel was diagnosed with terminal cancer and had to fight for a change in the law so that her pension benefits would go to her civil partner Stacie Andree. This was a landmark case in marriage equality law in America.

Julianne Moore and Ellen Page play Laurel and Stacie in the film, and understood the importance of recreating real people on-screen. "You have a responsibility to that person, to become as close to them as possible," Moore says.

Fox has released the X-Men: Days of Future Past behind-the-scenes featurette as it prepares its promotional material ahead of the movie's release on May 23. Mainly featuring Bryan Singer explaining his reasons for getting back into the director's chair for the latest entry in the long-running superhero series, the new clip also features some pretty neat looking footage from the blockbuster.

Ian McKellenIan McKellen in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Singer's first two movies starring Hugh Jackman paved the way for the younger cast (McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence etc) to take a hold of the franchise, though the filmmaker is delighted to be forging both teams together for Days of Future Past.

Ellen Page's "Spirit Suffered" Before Coming Out As A Lesbian


Ellen Page

Ellen Page, who famously portrayed the pregnant teenager Juno in the movie of the same name, has come out as a lesbian, admitting her “spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered,” due to hiding her sexuality, according to The Telegraph.

Ellen PageEllen Page has helped hundreds of non-famous people be themselves with her statement

She made her statement on Friday at a Las Vegas conference for gay teens, and in doing so, provides another important step for the acceptance of gay culture within mainstream society. "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," the 26-year-old actress said in a speech at the Time to Thrive conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign.

First Official Trailer For 'X Men: Days Of Future Past' Hints At Herculean Heroism In What Could Be The Next Great Comic Book Movie [Trailer]


Patrick Stewart Hugh Jackman Ian McKellen James McAvoy Michael Fassbender Ellen Page Jennifer Lawrence Anna Paquin Halle Berry Nicholas Hoult

X-Men: Days of Future Past won't be out until May next year, but after you see the first trailer for it you'll wish that you could jump forward and dive right into it now. In it, we get our first real glimpse at our mutant heroes and villains, from past and future, who must bend the space time continuum to make the future a better day for mutants throughout the Marvel Universe.

The past (McAvoy) and present (Stewart) Xaviers meet face to face in the trailer

Based on the much lauded and incredibly popular (if you happen to be into comic books at least) 'Days of Future Past' storyline from the Uncanny X-Men, the move will unite the characters from the first X-Men movies with those from 2011's X-Men: First Class, with the present day X-Men having to go back in time to prevent the ongoing war against mutants, who are being hunted down by the robotic Sentinels. Are you still with us? Good, because it gets even more complicated.

'Beyond Two Souls' Doesn't Go Beyond The Controller, Do We Want Movie-Style Video Games?


Ellen Page Willem Dafoe

Unfortunately, despite the hype, Beyond Two Souls hasn’t managed to successfully bridge the proverbial gap between video game and film. Many titles have attempting such a plug, with some getting closer than others - even Two Souls – but it’s the chasm remains. Hang on, though, do we really need to bridge that gap?

Ellen PageEllen Page in Two Souls

Beyond Two Soul’s hype stemmed from a number of facets. Not only does it feature two prominent actors in Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, but it was also entered into the Tribeca Film Festival. This lead to a marketing campaign centered on the convergence of the two mediums. But it’s not as though Two Souls is the first game to do this.

The East Review


Very Good

Despite a bunch of cold characters and a deeply contrived plot, this film is so infused with hot topicality that we are held in its grip all the way through. The issue is corporate irresponsibility and grass-roots activism, both of which feel ripped straight from the headlines to give the movie an edgy, almost documentary urgency. On the other hand, it's nearly impossible to get involved in the story's inter-personal dramas.

Director Batmanglij is reteaming with Sound of My Voice actress-cowriter Marling, who this time plays Jane, a corporate-security spy assigned by her shark-like boss (Clarkson) to infiltrate the eco-terrorism group The East. The goal is to prevent them from attacking any of her clients. It takes Jane awhile to worm her way into the anarchists' inner sanctum, where she immediately finds an affinity with leader Benji (Skarsgard), medically trained Doc (Kebbell) and flamboyant Luca (Fernandez). It takes longer to warm to the prickly Izzy (Page), but eventually Jane finds herself part of the core team, invited to participate in a series of jams in which The East gives company bosses a taste of their own toxic medicine.

In the cast of a pharmaceutical giant, this is quite literally the case: they infect the executive (Ormond) with the dangerous drug she's selling to the developing world. And the gang also stages assaults on oil companies in ways that are eerily easy for us to identify with, because the activists are making an important point. Indeed, we never really doubt where the filmmakers' sympathies lie: even if their actions are illegal and rather nasty, these "terrorists" are the good guys. At least this moral complexity gives the film a brainy kick.

Ellen Page Isn't Chuffed About 'The Last Of Us' Likeness


Ellen Page Ashley Johnson

Canadian actress Ellen Page, known for her roles in Juno and Inception, took part in a recent Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' session whereby fans can ask their heroes questions.

Fan 'MozeoSLT' decided to question the actress regarding her first upcoming video game appearance in Beyond: Two Souls, as well as the significant likeness between her and survival horror action The Last of Us game character, 'Ellie':

"This has almost certainly been made clear to you several times, but are you aware how much you look like Ellie from "The Last of Us," a video game which came out about a week ago. She even sounds like you. So much so that almost everyone assumed it was you playing the role. Which leads me to my questions:How did you like playing the role of a video game character when doing "Beyond: Two Souls?" Do you prefer live action? Have you seen any footage of "The Last of Us" and would you have taken the role as Ellie if approached?"

Ellen Page's 'Touchy Feely' Gets To Grips With Indie-Drama Genre [Trailer]


Ellen Page Rosemarie DeWitt Lynn Shelton Josh Pais Kate Bayley Alycia Delmore

The trailer for Touchy Feeling, the new indie-flick written and directed by Humpday's Lynn Shelton, has rolled out online. It stars Rosemarie DeWitt as Abby, a well-respected massage therapist who lives life to the fullest, while her quiet brother Paul struggles with his angst-ridden teenage daughter, played by Ellen Page.

Things get a little complicated when Abby's boyfriend offers her a home at his place and things go from bad to worse when she finds herself unable to face a new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact. Oh, and Abby's niece develops a crush on her boyfriend and attempts to seduce him. OH NO SHE DIDN'T.

Meanwhile, brother Paul's life begins to turn around when a patient claims his healing hands cured his toothache. Suddenly, his waiting room is packed, though can his newfound 'magic touch' help his sister Abby regain the fun in her life?

Touchy Feely Trailer


Abby is a particularly well-rated massage therapist who enjoys living life to the fullest while her quiet and correct brother Paul is the opposite with his failing dental practise and an awkward teenage daughter to look after. Abby needs a new place to live and when her boyfriend offers her a home at his place, things start to get complicated for her. On a regular day at work, she finds herself unable to face her new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact which not only puts her career in the gutter, but also drastically affects her relationship with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, her niece Jenny develops a crush on him and attempts to seduce him despite his love for Abby. Paul's life has also taken a dramatic change after a patient claimed that Paul's healing hands cured his toothache, leading to a much fuller waiting room at his surgery. But will his new found magic touch help Abby regain her life back? 

'Touchy Feely' is the hearting-tugging drama about the unpredictability of our futures and the importance of family support. Directed and written by Lynn Shelton ('My Effortless Brilliance', Humpday', 'Your Sister's Sister'), it's a movie that will see a few laughs, a few sighs and definitely a few tears.

Beyond: Two Souls - Willem Dafoe Unveiled As Ellen Page's Videogame Co-Star


Willem Dafoe Ellen Page

Willem Dafoe has been unveiled as the co-star to Ellen Page’s character in the new videogame Beyond: Two Souls. A trailer for David Cage’s new console adventure reveals that Dafoe plays the role of Nathan Dawkins, who meets the younger version of Ellen Page’s character and shows an interest in the demons that she has in her life. In the trailer, on YouTube, Dafoe says to a rather cute young Page that his job is to “study… strange events … and then try to explain them.” He studies a disturbing picture that the young child has drawn, causing her to comment on the ‘monsters’ that haunt her.

Another video shows a behind-the scenes clip of Dafoe wearing the performance capture suit, explaining how his character not only acts as a father figure to Ellen Page, but how he also manipulates the ‘gifted’ child for his own purposes. Page can also be seen in the clip, with her character demonstrating against the pressures being placed upon her “I just want to go out… and be like other girls my age,” she pines.

Ellen Page Stalker Who Threatened To Kill Her Ordered To Stay Away


Ellen Page Alexander Skarsgard

Star of Juno and Hard Candy, Ellen Page has been being harassed by a crazed stalker, but has won out after a judge finally ordered the man stay away from Page and not contact her in any way for the following three years. 

As TMZ reported: "According to the LAPD, the threats also coincided with a creepy telephone call received by the non-profit that organizes the LA Film Festival, where Ellen's... movie To Rome with Love premiered on June 14th. The LAPD claims the caller promised to go to the festival and 'kill Page.'"

The fan also used Twitter to contact and harass her, sending tweets such as: "I'm going to murder Ellen Page. She's dead." And "Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in then ext year . Be it in a club, in a restaurant, or when you're signing autographs." The tweets have been removed since, reports Inquisitr.

To Rome With Love Review


Very Good
After Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen remains in a cheery European mode for another breezy comedy tinged with magical realism. This one's actually four separate stories that are very loosely interwoven as people struggle with the unpredictability of romance and fame. And like Midnight in Paris, it shows off Rome in the most beautiful light imaginable.

Baldwin plays an architect who returns to his student stomping grounds and meets Jack (Eisenberg), who seems to be living his old life, even as he falls for a friend (Page) of his girlfriend (Gerwig). Meanwhile, there's Leopoldo (Benigni), a dull businessman who suddenly becomes a celebrity for no reason he can see, is pursued everywhere by the paparazzi and starts to enjoy the high life. Across town, Jerry and Phyllis (Allen and Davis) arrive to meet the fiance (Parenti) of their daughter (Pill). Then Jerry pushes a future in-law (Armiliato) into becoming the latest opera sensation. Finally, a young couple arrives from the country to start a new life in the city, but the husband (Tiberi) ends up having a farcical day out with a sexy prostitute (Cruz) while the wife (Mastronardi) meets her favourite actor (Albanese).

Woody Allen takes us on a romp around yet another beautiful European city with his latest film To Rome With Love. Set in one of the most beautiful and romantic cites in the world (unsurprisingly) Rome, the film is broken down into four parts and the tale follows the escapades and relationships of holiday makers and local residents alike, each story individually unravels and gives us a glimpse into their -generally complicated & quirky- lives.

Super Review


Very Good
Writer-director Gunn gleefully subverts genre expectations with this superhero movie that goes way against the grain. And what makes it worth seeing is the fact that every scene is grounded in reality.

Frank (Wilson) only has two moments in his life when he felt happy: first was his wedding to Sarah (Tyler) and second was when he helped a cop foil a crime.

So when Sarah leaves him for the charismatic criminal Jacques (Bacon), Frank turns to crimefighting, with a little inspiration from Libby (Page), who works in a comic book shop. Frank's super alter-ego is the Crimson Bolt, smacking criminals with a pipe-wrench. And when Libby figures it out, she becomes his sidekick Boltie, helping him launch an all-out offensive to free Sarah from Jacques' control.

Inception Review


Essential
Nolan pulls us into another fiendishly entertaining scenario, engaging our brains while taking us on a thrilling ride. And while the mind-bending story might not be as cerebral as it seems, it completely envelops us.

Cobb (DiCaprio) invades people's dreams for a living, stealing ideas with the help of his sidekick Arthur (Gordon-Levitt). But a new client (Watanabe) wants him to try inception instead: implanting an idea in the mind of media heir Fischer (Murphy). So Cobb hires a new architect (Page) and two other skilled experts (Hardy and Rao) to create an elaborately layered dreamworld for the reverse heist. The problem is that Cobb's wife (Cotillard) is lurking in this alternate reality and could bring the whole plan crashing down around them.

We have an excellent featurette about Chris Nolan's (The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, Momento) latest movie Inception. In the video both Chris Nolan, the director, and Leonardo Dicaprio (Shutter Island, The Departed, Gangs of New York), plays Dom Cobb the lead role, are interviewed about making the film, it's many locations in different countries around the world, the challenges of transferring the dreams of a human mind to the cinema screen and how it was working with each other.

Whip It Review


Excellent
Hugely openhearted and packed with terrific moments that are both spiky and resonant, this undemanding coming-of-age comedy is sharply put together with a bright cast and genuinely infectious energy.

In Bodeen, Texas, Bliss (Page) is the rebellious teen daughter of a proud society mom (Harden) and a laid-back, beer-loving dad (Stern). Then with her best pal (Shawkat) she discovers the roller derby in Austin, where her surprisingly strong audition catches the notice of the coach (Wilson) as well as the stars (including accident-prone Barrymore, wacky Wiig, sassy Eve and tough-girl Bell). Renamed Babe Ruthless, she joins the Hurl Scouts team, discovering that some things are more important than beating their archrivals for the championship, the Holy Rollers (led by Lewis).

The Tracey Fragments Review


Weak
Jason Reitman's Juno did amazing business, turned Ellen Page into an overnight phenomenon and gave people (including this reviewer) an excuse to refer to their significant others as "the cheese to my macaroni." From such a place comes Bruce McDonald's The Tracey Fragments. Arty to the nth degree, splintered and, yes, fragmented, this micro-indie gives carte blanche to Page again as Tracey Berkowitz, a cerebrally-addled teen who roams the streets and city buses of Ontario in the hopes of finding her missing younger brother Sonny (Thomas Turgoose), who has been hypnotized into believing he is a dog. Keane, it is not.

Though fitfully discombobulated, the song remains the same. Tracey's parents are two hyper-depressed louts who scream, bicker, and wonder why their daughter can't be just a normal happy teenager. Tracey's boyfriend is Billy Zero, a botched attempt at fertilizing Morrisey's eggs with Gary Numan's seed. Tracey has flourishes of fantasia that paint Billy and her as the leaders of an almost-listenable punk band called Teenage Pussy that gets Album of the Year from Mojo magazine. She has a female psychiatrist that faintly resembles the Screaming Man from Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, and her entire school thinks it's a real riot that she has small boobs. Where am I?

Smart People Review


OK
In acting, chameleon-like versatility can be overrated. In Smart People, the principle actors are assigned roles right in their natural strike zones, and it's a pleasure to watch them swing away with ease. Dennis Quaid capitalizes on his natural late-career crankiness to play Lawrence Wetherhold, a widowed English professor with a perpetual sour look. His daughter Vanessa is a mouthy overachiever, which is the established domain of Ellen Page, whether her gift is configured through superhuman quippiness (Juno), insane manipulation (Hard Candy), or the ability to walk through walls (X-Men: The Last Stand).

Entering into the Wetherhold house, ostensibly to chauffer the belligerent prof after a seizure suspends his driver's license, is Lawrence's laid-back, semi-transient adopted brother Chuck. Chuck is played by Thomas Haden Church in a clear and mostly successful post-Sideways bid to establish future laid-back semi-transients as "the Thomas Haden Church part." Church and Page are especially fun to watch and, especially, listen to: Church's sort of deadpan surfer growl and Page's nasal precociousness in a vocal duel. That they recall their previous roles only hastens our desire to spend time with them.

Juno Review


Excellent
Ellen Page plays a quirky teenager in Jason Reitman's Juno but she does so in a way I've rarely witnessed before. She's not rebelling from medication like Natalie Portman in Garden State, nor is she just a normal, shy girl who is externally quirky like Tina Majorino in Napoleon Dynamite. Her peculiarities aren't her definition like Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club, and she's not flippantly cute and brazenly poetic like Zooey Deschanel in Paul Gordon Green's All the Real Girls. Page's Juno MacGuff certainly has hints of all these characters, but what we witness of her comes from somewhere far off-screen. Remarkably, the world we're watching doesn't revolve around her.

When this Argento-loving firecracker gets knocked up by Paulie Bleeker (the invaluable Michael Cera), her rhythms don't change much; a big cookie consumed simultaneously with a lamb kebob seems like something she'd eat even if her hormones weren't all akimbo. After chatting up an ex-pill popper/current pro-lifer, her attempts to procure an abortion are thwarted by the thought of her baby's tapping fingernails and the sterilized miasma of the clinic's waiting room. Hastily, she opts for an old-fashioned, at-birth adoption with no frills. Her parents, played lovingly by J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney, are concerned but surprisingly level-headed, even if they wished she had just gotten a DUI instead of getting knocked up.

X-Men: The Last Stand Review


OK

We've witnessed, this summer, how fresh blood can rejuvenate a franchise entering its third installment. Weeks ago, Paramount handed the Mission: Impossible keys to J.J. Abrams (Alias) and clicked their heels when the inventive television director breathed new life into a financially healthy but creatively stagnant series.

Fox attempts a similar trick with its valuable X-Men venture, though in honesty the studio had little choice. After conceiving two blockbuster films that delighted both critics and fans, director Bryan Singer walked away from the X universe for the chance to direct the next Man of Steel movie (his Superman Returns arrives in theaters next month). Fox wouldn't let Singer's exit kill its golden-egg-laying goose, so the studio plopped oft-maligned hired gun filmmaker Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) behind the camera and prayed that he wouldn't botch The Last Stand, reportedly the final installment.

Mouth To Mouth Review


OK
Mouth to Mouth has enough going for it that you want to like it. But, try as you might, writer-director-dance choreographer Alison Murray's youth cautionary tale will likely leave you frustrated, and exhausted by the effort. Murray's movie rides on a thin dramatic premise: Sherry (Ellen Page), a teenager alienated from her mother (there's something new) runs away and joins a radical youth cooperative (read: cult) made up of society's backwash, i.e. junkies, runaways, and former prostitutes.

The group's fist-in-the-air acronym is SPARK (Street People Armed with Radical Knowledge), and the creed they rally around is "intellectual self-defense" -- a catchphrase that should ring a bell with anyone familiar with the 1992 Noam Chomsky documentary Manufacturing Consent. Apart from weaning addicts off drugs, SPARK's shaven-headed principal members, none of whom apparently owns a shirt, operate with no bigger political purpose in mind. Largely, the group exists as a generic narrative device -- an aimless, visionless organization of Murray's concoction solely to run Sherry through her paces.

Hard Candy Review


Excellent
After chatting and flirting online, Hayley and Jeff decide to make the jump to real life. They meet up at a coffee shop and trade charged banter, each one doing a little dance to intimate that they are interested without making it too overt or aggressive. It's a courtship ritual between two together people who spark immediately, so they quickly shift locations to Jeff's swanky house in the hills above Los Angeles.So begins Hard Candy; it's not some feature-length ad for Match.com, nor the cozy start to a cyberspace romantic comedy, but rather it's something far, far more icky. See, Jeff is 32; Hayley is 14. Think that's unsettling? Just wait.Haley, as played by a truly talented Ellen Page, looks so young that her androgyny isn't an aesthetic choice, but the result of a body not yet having developed into adulthood. There is literally no escaping how young this girl is, yet she speaks with such unsentimental intelligence and charm that she goes far past precociousness and into genuine maturity. Patrick Wilson's Jeff is confusing in his own way - he's such a nice guy, so easygoing and normal and generally appealing. He makes all the right protests, says all the right things, has all the right humility. As written, their flirtation is a suitably awkward and genuinely likable opening to a sweet, burgeoning relationship. Except the girl is in middle school. So it is all kinds of wrong.The pedophilia angle is immensely disquieting, to be sure, but then it gets worse. Because Hayley is not some innocent fly being lured into the spider's den; she's actually a very calculating young woman with some brutal, well thought-out notions of punishment. Things get harder to take as layers of guilt and abhorrent behaviors pile atop one another for both of them. She's clearly a very twisted and disturbed young woman with some deeply wrong revenge fantasies, but... he's a pedophile. There's no safe place to lay your loyalties on this one.Hard Candy heavily relies on the strength of its two actors, since the entire film comprises these two slowly and relentlessly stripping one another bare. And it's a boon that both stars are quite stellar. Page is fantastic, managing to be both vulnerable and vicious - often simultaneously. And Wilson never defaults to merely playing the victim; he always has more secrets and shame festering under his surface. Director David Slade, largely a veteran of assorted music videos, echoes the claustrophobia of the script with his affinity for extreme tight shots and artfully invasive camera work throughout. All the close-up work forces a reluctant intimacy with the characters, neither of whom are people you want to be particularly near to, which further blankets the film with tension.This is not to say that Hard Candy doesn't have its share of weak spots - the screenplay, by Brian Nelson, is oddly reliant on the unnecessary device/contrivance of Jeff's ex-girlfriend, and the schemes and plans Hayley has in place are, once you step back, so over the top they are nearly laughable. This girl's thirst for vengeance is a deeply rooted flair for the dramatic. And the conclusion, when it finally comes after the numerous twists and turns, left me somewhat unsatisfied.But in reality, the largest liability for the film is its profoundly disturbing nature. This is, after all, a protracted revenge fantasy layered on top of pedophilia. It's relentless and nerve-wracking and squirm-inducing. It's the movie where someone says, "Was it good?" and they are met with a long silence before a hesitant "Yeeaahhhh..." Because you don't like this movie; like a Todd Solondz film, it isn't built to be liked. It's there to be experienced, tolerated, and appreciated for the wretched, well-executed, difficult, artful, and appalling creation that it is.She wants candy.
