Miss You Already Review

Excellent

This may be a drama about breast cancer, but it's astutely written and played with a jagged sense of humour that makes it thoroughly entertaining. Anchored by energetic, emotionally resonant performances from Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette, the film is also a sharp depiction of lifelong friends who travel through some enormous events together. And by keeping everything so funny and honest, it's even more moving than expected.

Jess and Milly (Barrymore and Collette) have grown up together in London, outsiders who always had each others' backs. Their respective spouses Jago and Kit (Paddy Considine and Dominic Cooper) have become part of their extended family, as are Milly's two sparky kids (Honor Kneafsey and Ryan Lennon Baker) and Milly's diva mum (Jacqueline Bisset). Jess has never been able to get pregnant, so she and Jago are undergoing fertility treatment. And just as Jess finds out that she's pregnant, Milly is diagnosed with cancer. Both are understandably nervous about sharing their news. Then things get even more strained when Milly's relationship with Kit falters, and she starts flirting shamelessly with a local barman (Tyson Ritter).

Morwenna Banks' screenplay may have a fairly standard structure, but its details are fresh and unusually balanced, cleverly deepening the characters and never letting the movie fall into sentimental sappiness. Indeed, as the emotions get more intense, the interaction gets edgier and the jokes dirtier. Both Barrymore and Collette shine in their roles. With the showier, more wrenching character, Collette brings a raucous feistiness that's utterly infectious, even when Milly does something she knows is wrong. She is certainly not a cancer "victim"! And Barrymore digs much deeper than usual as Jess, deploying her impeccable comic timing to draw out the character's inner yearnings. Opposite them, both Considine and Cooper are excellent in roles that are more textured than the usual long-suffering husbands.

Miss You Already Trailer


Milly has rather a modest life as a community gardener, living on a boat in London with her long term boyfriend Jago with whom she is trying for a baby. And while her relationship with Jago is at its peak, Milly's real soulmate is in her best friend Jess; a rather more outspoken woman with a booming career, husband and two children, and who has been by Milly's side since they were very small children. They have always been there for each other despite how different they are, but their friendship is about to be tested for the first time when Jess is suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer. Now with mortality threatening to break the duo apart, they must find a way to keep on smiling even when things get even harder with Jess' treatment, and the stress that comes with having a potentially terminal illness.

Welcome To New York Review


Excellent

Both this film and its central character are so unapologetic that it's difficult to get either out of your head long after the final credits roll. A fictionalised version of a notorious real story, this is an unflinching account of how the rich and powerful live seemingly above the law. Until they crash with a thud so loud it's heard around the world. And as an exploration of how money and privilege corrupt the soul, this film is essential viewing, no matter how uncomfortable it is to watch.

At the centre is Devereaux (Gerard Depardieu), the corpulent head of the World Bank, whose life is a whirlwind of prostitutes, drugs and wild sex parties, even as he still has hopes of one day becoming president of France. Then in a five-star suite in a Manhattan hotel, he unthinkingly assaults a maid (Pamela Afesi). And he has no idea why he's being arrested in a media frenzy. He calls his wealthy wife Simone (Jacqueline Bisset) for bail him out, and she reluctantly drops her charity work to fly to New York and rent a house for them for the duration of his trial, standing by his side for the cameras, along with his daughter Sophie (Marie Moute). But Devereaux is so sure his political connections will get him off that he remains utterly unrepentant.

Depardieu is astonishing in the role, giving a fearless performance as a man who is so self-absorbed that he can't even begin to think that his actions might hurt someone. Consequences don't matter to him, because he's always done whatever he wants. And Depardieu is utterly transparent in every scene, most memorably when he is strip-searched by the cops and, even more disturbingly, when he mauls a young journalist (Shanyn Leigh) interviewing him about the trial. Opposite him, Bisset is radiant and fierce as a woman worn down by her infant-like husband, but standing by him against her better judgment. Their bristly conversations in the final act play out in long takes that are seriously gripping.

Welcome To New York Trailer


Devereaux is well known by the people closest to him as an uninhibited playboy, using his wealth and his high status as a rich French politician to gain him access to a whole world of sexual adventures. Despite the fact that he has a loving wife, nothing stops him in his pursuit of pleasure, but such undisciplined behaviour is always likely to be dangerous. After one spontaneous encounter with a New York hotel maid, he finds himself suddenly accused by authorities of being a rapist. While everyone knows of his womanizing ways, no-one would've suspected such an occurence and Devereaux is left cowering and desperate, and feeling guilty that his lifestyle has led to such injustice. Will a man who has so many big ideas on rescuing the economy manage to hold his high for long enough to protest his innocence? Or has he managed to end his promising career?

Dominique Strauss-Kahn has announced his intention to sue the makers of Welcome To New York, the recently-released French language movie inspired by the former IMF boss' epic downfall. The controversial drama has become the talk of this year's Cannes Film Festival with provocative promotional stunts and now a potentially high profile legal case.

Jacqueline Bisset: 'My Goddaughter Angelina Jolie Has A Hard Life'


Jacqueline Bisset Angelina Jolie

Veteran actress Jacqueline Bisset has lavished praise on her goddaughter Angelina Jolie for overcoming so many difficulties in her life, including a double mastectomy last year (13).

Jolie had both her breasts removed in 2013 after discovering she was at high risk of developing cancer and is facing more surgery in the future to reduce her chances of falling ill.

Her godmother Bisset, who was close friends with Jolie's late mother Marcheline Bertrand, admits the Hollywood star has overcome many troubles and she is impressed with her "strength".

Golden Globes Glory: Last weekend's Golden Globe awards set hearts racing ahead of March's Oscars with plenty of deserving winners next to a few jaw-dropping snubs. 12 Years A Slave predictably came out on top with the big gong but a few unpredictabilities set award odds and Oscars speculation askew. Newbie comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine saw off rivals to claim two awards whilst Blue Jasmine's Cate Blanchett took the leading lady award alongside Dallas Buyers Club's  for the men.

Gravity's Alfonso Cuarón stole Best Director from Steve McQueen whilst Breaking Bad and Behind The Candelabra snatched the big TV awards. The surprise wins also made for some truly memorable speeches too, with Elisabeth Moss exclamation of "Oh s**t!" and Jacqueline Bisset's sweary ramble marking two particular highlights. Read about all the winners here.

Lena Dunham Wants Jamie Dornan On Girls


Lena Dunham Jamie Dornan Zac Efron Lupita Nyong'o Jacqueline Bisset Paul Dano Victoria Beckham Zosia Mamet Richard E. Grant

Lena Dunham wants Jamie Dornan to star on 'Girls'.

The actress-and-director would have loved the Irish '50 Shades of Grey' hunk to share some steamy sex scenes with the cast of her hit TV show, but fears his high profile casting as S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey has made him off-limits to get up close and personal with any of the characters.

Speaking at the 'Girls' season three UK premiere at London's Cineworld Haymarket last night (15.01.14), she said: ''Allison [Williams] wants Zac Efron. [We] requested Jamie Dornan, but the thing is, [we] requested him post-'50 Shades of Grey' casting. He's amazing, but I just feel it's too late.''

Jacqueline Bisset Wins Golden Globe With Sweary And Rambling Acceptance Speech [Video]


Jacqueline Bisset

Jacqueline Bisset may not be one of the hugest Hollywood names to have accepted a Golden Globe at last night's ceremony but the British actress has provided much to talk about with her rather unorthodox acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Show, Miniseries or TV Movie for her performance in the BBC drama, Dancing on the Edge.

Jacqueline Bisset's Golden Globes Acceptance Speech Has Brought Shock & Laughter.

Against rivals Janet McTeer ('White Queen'), Hayden Panettiere ('Nashville'), Monica Potter ('Parenthood') and Sofia Vergara ('Modern Family'), Bisset had probably assumed she'd be overshadowed and indeed as her name was read out by Mila Kunis the 69 year-old actress' surprise was evident in her facial expression.
