Keri Russell Expecting A Baby With Boyfriend And 'Americans' Co-Star Matthew Rhys


Keri Russell Matthew Rhys

Keri Russell is reportedly expecting a baby with her boyfriend, and co-star of ‘The Americans’, Matthew Rhys.

The couple began dating when they met on the set of the FX spy drama in 2013, and a report by Us Weekly on Wednesday suggested that they were expecting their first child together. “Keri is more than four months along. It’s so exciting for them,” a source told the publication.

Russell, 39 years old and a former star of ‘Felicity’ and of movies like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has two children (daughter Willa, 4, and son River, 8) from her seven-year marriage to ex-husband Shane Deary, which ended in 2013.

Does 'The Americans' Season 2 Live Up To The First? The Critics Say: Yes!


Keri Russell Matthew Rhys Noah Emmerich

Returning to a series that has enjoyed a strong first season is always a risk: expectations are doubled, and the job of pleasing fans increasing exponentially the further you go on; the further you desensitise them from what you have to say. The Americans, which is primarily a drama about relationships and marriage while the backdrop of war and espionage provides its steely edge, premiered last night on FX with its second season, and re-enters a TV space filled with stern competition. But if the critical response is anything to go by, it’ll soon become one of the most talked about shows of 2014.

“FX's The Americans does the near-impossible of making viewers cheer for Russian spies in America and at the same time for the American FBI agents who are trying to unmask those Russians living in suburbia. It's an incredibly deft balancing act that's accomplished through strong character development all around,” writes Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Americans Season Review (Spoiler Free)


Matthew Rhys

The premise of FX’s The Americans makes it sound like a show with a lot more tension than it actually holds. It’s centered around two KGB agents, living undercover in 80s suburbia (right next to a FBI agent, no less), trying simultaneously to fit into the white picket fence lifestyle and build a family and go on secret missions, completely unnoticed by their neighbours (and the American government, of course). Sounds like a 24-style high tension action series. But the reality is very different. Rather than focusing on the Russian-ness of the Jennings, the show focuses on the American-ness of everything else – the food, the neighbors, the culture.

It’s definitely a series with too faces and, while enough attention is paid to the weapons, kidnappings and espionage, ample screen time is also devoted to the Jennings’ daily life, their interaction with the neighbours, their children’s school lives. It is as much a portrayal of American life, as it is an exploration of Cold War era attitudes. In addition, the very structure of the first season makes it more watchable than most “high style” shows on TV these days. Like in a humble comedy, most of the plot twists get resolved within the show’s weekly hour, but there’s still enough of an overreaching story arch to keep things interesting over the course of the season. The Americans doesn’t shy away from the occasional cliffhanger, but it does so in a way that won’t keep you up at night. And, while that might not fly too well with the critics, it makes for a surprisingly and refreshingly light debut season. If you wanna play catchup, you can check out the trailer below.

The Edge Of Love Review


Bad
In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed

So begins Dylan Thomas' "In my Craft or Sullen Art," a poem about the elusiveness of the inner muse, which resists being easily understood. Though its words never show up in John Maybury's The Edge of Love, an absurdly stylized and utterly feeble supposition on the events that shaped the incomparable Welsh poet in war-stricken London, it points at the very heart of the film's artful damage.

Titus Review


Weak
Titus Andronicus: One mean bastard.

Okay... I'm kinda lost. Who the hell is Titus Andronicus, you may ask? Well, Titus A. was the first play by Bill Shakespeare, about the usual themes of the mighty Bill: Revenge, hatred, a little bit of incest, honor, mental loopiness, and damn good human mincemeat pie. The hard part of trying to bring Shakespeare to life through either film or stage production is trying to cut through all of the pompous attitude of the director and making an understandable, comprehensible piece of narrative.

Titus Review


Very Good

Sumptuously and elaborately staged, steeped in powerful symbolism and bordering on absolute brilliance, Julie Taymor's sometimes pretentious "Titus" flirts with becoming among the all-time best of Shakespeare movies -- if you can endure the stomach-turning violence.

Adapted from the Bard's "Titus Andronicus," a manifold tragedy that makes "Hamlet" look like "Ozzie and Harriet," the film stars Anthony Hopkins in the title role of a loyal Roman general returning from a victorious campaign against the Goths. It has cost him a dreadful personal price: 21 of his 24 sons were killed in battle.

He brings with him their bodies and five prisoners -- Tamora (Jessica Lange), the queen of the Goths, her sons (Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Raz Degan and Matthew Rhys), and Aaron (Harry Lennix), a Moor with an evil streak as deep as the ocean -- and hands them over to the newly ensconced Emperor (a Hitler-esque Alan Cumming), who also asks for Titus' daughter in marriage as a sign of allegiance.

Very Annie-Mary Review


Weak

Beware the quirky Brit-com -- especially the kind that take place in a quiet little village. They can and will turn on a dime from oddly humorous to tediously sentimental.

"Very Annie-Mary" is such a prime example of this phenomenon that it even makes blatant reference to similar movies on several occasions. What's with the 10-year-old kids acting out rather inappropriate scenes from "The Full Monty" in their front garden?

Those kids are only seen in passing in this film, but the title character isn't any more original. She's a slightly feeble-witted, child-like adult and wannabe singer whose dreams are always quashed by the terribly domineering single parent with whom she still lives. If this sounds familiar, you've probably seen "Little Voice," this genre's high water mark. If it doesn't sound familiar, rent "Little Voice" and save yourself the trouble of sitting through this inferior imitator.
