Warren Beatty writes, directs and stars in the new movie Rules Don't Apply.
Marla Mabrey could be the next talk of the town, having already made a name for herself by being named the local beauty queen in the small town she grew up in, much bigger things await the brunette beauty. Hollywood is on her doorstep and with a little luck she's about to become one of the biggest actresses the town knows.
The year is 1958 and Marla is accompanied to the city by her mother having grown up in a strict Baptist environment, some people might judge Marla as being a little frigid, especially as the city is just on the brink of a feminist uprising. She doesn't drink, smoke or believe in premarital sex but the city might just loosen Marla up and introduce her to a few vices she never thought she'd take up.

Has 'Love, Rosie' really transformed the ever-worm romantic comedy genre?
While some filmmakers are happy to rely on the same old formula, others are forever seeking a new approach to a tired genre. And with its nagging predictability, there isn't a trickier genre to refresh than the romantic comedy, because everyone knows that there's only one way these movies can possibly end.
With the British rom-com 'Love, Rosie', director Christian Ditter and Juliette Towhidi, adapting Cecilia Ahern's novel, have a distinctly unusual premise even if the conclusion is rather foregone. This is the story of two lifelong friends who are clearly attracted to each other but neglect to reveal their feelings, sending their lives in very different directions.
Continue reading: 'Love, Rosie' Tries Another Rom-Com Twist
Deliberately unstructured, this likeable romantic comedy holds the audience's interest with its strikingly engaging cast and a slick visual style, but the plot is both contrived and underdeveloped. As the filmmakers try out some wacky slapstick, pointed political moments or a bit of darkly emotional drama, the movie's tone veers so wildly that we don't quite know where to look. And by never managing to crack the surface, the script leaves the actors with little to do but look good.
The story centres on two childhood friends: Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) grew up on the same street in England, developing romantic longings that they kept hidden. After a drunken teenage kiss, they rebound into the arms of other people: Rosie hooks up with the school hunk Greg (Christian Cooke), while Alex takes wannabe supermodel Bethany (Suki Waterhouse) to the big dance. Then Rosie and Alex's plan to go to university together in Boston is derailed by an unexpected pregnancy. Over the next 12 years they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic, trying to get on with their romantic lives. Alex finds a serious girlfriend (Tamsin Egerton) while Rosie re-connects with Greg and gets support from a pal (Jaime Winstone). But they never stop pining for each other.
Shot and edited in a bouncy rom-com style, it's immediately obvious where this is heading, so screenwriter Juliette Towhidi has to work overtime to throw the audience off the scent, which leaves the movie spinning in circles while we wait for the inevitable to happen. Fortunately, the characters are vivid enough to keep us entertained, as people move in and out of each others' lives providing the laughs and tears for Rosie and Alex, as well as the audience. Even if the characters are predictable and simplistic, Collins and Claflin manage to find moments of real depth along the way. Although it's difficult not to think that one proper conversation between these lifelong best pals would have saved them decades of frustration.

Mimi and her newest band The Mad Noise Factory feature on the movie's colourful soundtrack with 'Get Me Back'.
Mimi & The Mad Noise Factory are a Germany-based indie-pop band whose upbeat tune 'Get Me Back' from their new album has caught the attention of the soundtrack arrangers for forthcoming British comedy 'Love, Rosie' - and with good reason.
Mimi's new band The Mad Noise Factory unveiled their first collective album earlier this year
With a dynamic beat, quirky vocals and an infectiously catchy dance rhythm, 'Get Me Back' marks a perfect soundtrack song to a tale of long lost young love, lustful recklessness and romantic exuberance. Produced by English producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur), the track follows their previous single 'Heartbreaker', and features on their newest full-length offering 'Nothing But Everything', released in March 2014 through Warner Music Group Germany.
Love can be confusing, complicating and utterly gut-wrenching as Rosie painfully discovers on her journey to adulthood. She and Alex have been best friends since childhood, with any hint of a romance being only fleeting, and quickly replaced by someone else. At school they decide to go to university together in America, but while Alex lands his dream scholarship at Harvard, Rosie finds herself left behind with an unplanned pregnancy - with the father taking off pretty quickly. Alex and Rosie are determined to stay in contact, but when she makes the mistake of telling her colleague about him, she starts to wonder if she has lost him forever as they begin planning a wedding. As it slowly dawns on Rosie that she and Alex were made for each other, it becomes unclear how their next meeting will end - especially after 12 years.

In the next 12 years, they find their worlds transforming in more ways than they could've possibly imagined, but the matchless bond between them can only strengthen with time. And while their romantic lives stray away from each other, could they find themselves rekindling hidden feelings for one another in their futures?

We're sure that Lily Collins is on her way to being as big as Jennifer Lawrence, but who is 25 year old actress?
Lily Collins isn’t just the daughter of Phil Collins. The stunning 25 year old actress and model began acting when she was just two years old, starring in the BBC series Growing Pains. Now sure, it may have been easier for her to break into the business because of her famous dad, but Lily has never been averse to hard work. When she was still just a teenager Collins began writing her own column NY Confidential for British mag Elle Girl, also contributing to Seventeen, Teen Vogue and the Los Angeles Times supplement magazines.
Stunning Lily, pictured here leaving her London hotel last summer
In 2007 Chanel picked her to wear one of their gowns to the Bal des Debutantes in Paris and in 2008 Spanish Glamour magazine chose Lily as their “International Model of the Year”, as well as featuring her on the cover. In 2009 she starred in The Blind Side, the film for which Sandra Bullock won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Collins played the daughter of Bullock’s character, Collins Tuohy. She has since gone on to star in Priest, alongside Paul Bettany, as well as playing Samantha in Stuck in Love, which she starred in with Bettany’s wife, Jennifer Connelly and Greg Kinnear.

[Spoilers] Fisticuffs, dancing, romance and secrets as we delve into the throng of season 4.
The second episode of Downton Abbey's fourth season managed to pull in 9.6 million viewers according to Inquisitr - beating the premiere episode last week. Ratings are expected to be equally impressive for the American premiere of season 4, set to air in January.
Matthew's Death Devastated Downton.
As rating rose, so did the widowed Lady Mary's spirits as the doom and gloom of episode one's grieving was lightened with some dancing. Although Mary (Michelle Dockery) did not join in with said dancing despite the invitation from Cousin Rose (Lily James), there was a palpable optimism in the air as the Lady moved out of her slump and back into the land of the living.
