Dawson and Amanda are living the life of the typical movie love story - they spend their time enjoying long summer days and nights together, until events conspire to break them apart. Dawson is arrested and goes to jail, leaving Amanda to live out her life without him. After being called to the funeral of an old friend, the couple meet each other for the first time in twenty one years. The couple begin to ponder the idea of letting go and moving on from your first true love, as they are dragged together into a relationship which also pits them against the same forces that drove them apart in the first place. The romantic drama spans decades, showing that some loves can truly last a lifetime.

Alan Rickman didn't worry about people spotting him filming nude scenes in public for 'Gambit'.

The veteran actor stripped off for scenes in London landmark building The Gherkin - which has floor-to-ceiling windows - but never asked for the set to be closed to prevent passers-by from catching a glimpse of him naked.

Director Michael Hoffman said: ''I did think it would be very hard to have an open set in an all-glass [building by architect Norman Foster]. But he didn't ask for us to close it off - he was very brave.''

Michael Hoffman: Colin Firth Was A Laugh On Gambit Set

Michael Hoffman thinks Colin Firth was unintentionally funny in 'Gambit'.

The director confessed the 52-year-old actor provided a lot of laughs at his own expense in the new Coen Brothers' scripted comedy, especially during a scene involving a real-live lion which had the cast and crew in stitches.

Speaking at the world premiere of 'Gambit' in London's Leicester Square on Wednesday night (07.11.12), Michael told BANG Showbiz: ''Colin is more unintentionally funny. Cameron you're always laughing along with. Sometimes with Colin you get to laugh at him.

Colin Firth was anxious about dropping his trousers in 'Gambit'.

The 52-year-old actor strolls through the Savoy Hotel wearing nothing but a shirt in the new Coen Brothers' scripted comedy, and he was embarrassed about his un-gentlemanly attire and exposing his legs on camera.

Speaking at the world premiere of 'Gambit' in London's Leicester Square last night (07.11.12), Colin told BANG Showbiz: ''I did have a bit of leg anxiety at the time. It's one thing to basically drop everything, but just the trousers ... It's just not a look that's recommended for a gentleman - brogues, socks up to the knees, underpants!''

Gambit Premier: Cameron Diaz And Colin Firth Talk Nudity And New Skills.


Cameron Diaz Colin Firth Alan Rickman Michael Hoffman Coen Brothers

Eccentric British/American comedy 'Gambit' premiered in London last night at the Empire in Leicester square. It stars Cameron Diaz, Colin Firth and Alan Rickman, and was directed by Michael Hoffman, with a script written by the Coen Brothers. With a line-up like that you can't really go wrong!

The remake of the 1966 film of the same name follows an art curator (Firth) who is sick of his boss (Rickman) and decides to take sweet revenge, in a variety of hilarious ways, aided by cowgirl PJ Puznowski (Diaz). Despite being written by Americans and directed by another American, it's a very British comedy.  

On the red carpet Firth, Diaz and Hoffman spoke to ITN and the Daily Mail, and spoke about the trials and tribulations of working on the film. Cameron and Firth spoke to ITN about the nudity in the film, that has already been widely talked about. Cameron said "nothing's gratuitous, it's all for a purpose." Which was followed by a self-defacing quip from Firth who said: "My legs are there for gratuitous comedy, and they've been shamelessly exploited." Firth only really loses his trousers in the film, but Alan Rickman's character Lord Lionel Shabandar spends some of it in his birthday suit. The making of the film wasn't all levels of nudity, Cameron also got to try her hand at real life cow-girling, in an interview with the Daily Mail she said "I got to do a little lassoing, a little roping on the cattle." Adding, "It was a lot of fun."

The Last Station Review


OK
A double love story based on real events from the life of Leo Tolstoy, this period film combines comedy and emotion in a way that's always entertaining, even if it sometimes feels camp and contrived.

Valentin (McAvoy) is a young Tolstoyan in 1910 assigned by the movement's leader Chertkov (Giamatti) to keep an eye on Leo Tolstoy (Plummer) and his sceptical wife Sofya (Mirren). But what Valentin finds is a lively, loving marriage that's strong enough to include opposing views. This isn't good enough for Chertkov, who moves to get Leo to change his will to leave everything to the movement. Which of course enrages Sofya. Meanwhile, Valentin is experiencing his first flush of love with a Tolstoyan commune resident (Condon).
