Luke Treadaway Upsets The Odds To Win Best Actor Olivier Award [Photos]

Luke Treadaway, the British actor often dubbed a 'rising star' in the industry, won best actor at a glitzy Olivier Awards ceremony in London on Sunday (April 28, 2013). The National Theatre's adaptation of Mark Haddon's 2003 murder mystery The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time won seven awards in total, with Treadaway fending off stiff competition from Mark Rylance, James McAvoy and Rupert Everett to win best actor for his role as maths genius and Aspergers sufferer Christopher Boone, who sets out to solve the mystery of who killed his neighbour's dog.

"This is for everyone who worked on the show. I can't believe it.This is absolutely amazing," said Treadaway after accepting the award from Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall. His co-star Nicola Walker was named best supporting actress for her role as Christopher's guilt ridden mother, saying, "My agent told me to breathe if I won, and my husband told me not to swear...Every single day of rehearsals and every single performance was a prize, so this is completely overwhelming."

Beyond The Gates Review


Good
The enormity of what is depicted in Beyond the Gates is hard to even comprehend, but unlike many works of art about atrocity, the film makes a good faith effort to bring it across with a minimum of false drama. In the spring of 1994 in Rwanda, there are murmurings of trouble, but at the Ecole Technique Officielle, a European-run secondary school in Kigali where a number of UN peacekeepers are temporarily based, all seems peaceful. The kids go through their routines and lessons while the white staff remains mostly ignorant of the storm brewing outside, the school's oasis providing a mostly untrue sense of safety to those residing within. The warning signs are there of course, for audiences with the benefit of historical hindsight; the meaningful glares from a Hutu worker at the school, a Hutu politician who comes by to scope out the school and to ask leading questions about exactly how many UN soldiers are quartered there. Then the massacres begin.

Like in 2004's Hotel Rwanda, the bulk of Beyond the Gates is about the establishment of a safe zone within the homicidal abyss that the country so precipitously fell into. As Hutu militia roam the countryside -- drunk, mad with power, and waving bloody machetes like creatures from a nightmare -- and massacring any Tutsis they come across, the school becomes a haven for refugees, with the guns of the few blue-helmeted UN soldiers the only thing keeping the killers at bay. It is also about the lengths to which a number of good people will go to in order to save the lives of the innocent. John Hurt plays the school's resident priest, Father Christopher, with his customary blend of scratch-throated gravitas and self-deprecating wit. Hugh Dancy (somewhat flat here) co-stars as Joe Connor, a sort of Oxfam poster boy, the handsome and well-meaning European spending his gap year teaching in a third world school; like a more moral version of James McAvoy's doctor in The Last King of Scotland. Both are stunned into near-incomprehension by the butchery going on outside the gates, but act in extremely different ways. This is not a film that allows an audience the easy out of providing them a character who does the right thing and is rewarded for it.

Four Weddings And A Funeral Review


Excellent
In the spring of 1994, Four Weddings and a Funeral was an international hit, earning an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and turning Hugh Grant into a star. It was the My Big Fat Greek Wedding of its day. There's just one tiny difference. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a far superior movie in just about every way, a funny and stirring look at stumbling toward love and the effect of friendship.

And, there's not a bottle of Windex anywhere to be found.
