She's Funny That Way - Clips


Highly respected theatre director Arnold Albertson could not have made more of a mistake when he spends the night with a young and attractive escort named Izzy; now determined to become an actress, she turns up at auditions for his next big Broadway show the following day. To make matters even more awkward, his wife Delta is already cast in the upcoming play and Izzy's remarkable skill leaves him no choice but to take her on to avoid suspicion from the rest of the impressed cast. Unfortunately, it isn't long before Delta's co-star and ex-boyfriend Seth (who happens to still be in love with Delta) finds out about Arnold's brazen infidelity, and with this hanging over him, Arnold has no idea if show will go on if the truth comes out. Izzy is also causing a stir in other people's love lives; her therapist Jane has fallen head over heels for Arnold's playwright Joshua, but he only has eyes for Izzy. Who knew one girl could be so much trouble?

With preparation well underway for his latest Broadway show, director Arnold Albertson (Owen Wilson) heads to New York to begin casting. While there, he has a one-night-stand with a young starlet named Izzy (Imogen Poots). He is then shocked to discover her attending his audition the next day, where she performs alongside his wife Delta (Kathryn Hahn) and performs so well that he has to give her the part. As if that wasn't enough, Abertson's leading man (Rhys Ifans) knows about the affair, and also is in love with Delta. And if THAT wasn't enough, Izzy's therapist Jane (Jennifer Aniston), has fallen in love with the show's playwright Josh (Will Forte), who in turn has fallen in love with Izzy. All that remains, is to find out if the play with succeed with so many forces acing against it.

Who Is John McEnroe And Tatum O’Neal’s Son Kevin McEnroe?


John McEnroe Tatum O'neal

Kevin McEnroe, the son of tennis legend John McEnroe and actress Tatum O’Neal, has found himself the subject of headline news today, after he was arrested on Tuesday. The New York Post reported that the 28 year old was taken into custody after being caught buying various drugs including cocaine and prescription pills from a dealer in New York’s East Village. But despite being the son of one of the most famous tennis players of all time and the youngest ever Academy Award recipient, Kevin had managed to keep a pretty low profile until his arrest. So what do we actually know about Kevin McEnroe?

When John McEnroe married Tatum O’Neal in 1986, the former World Number 1 tennis player was taking a year long break from his decorated career. McEnroe had already been a three time Wimbledon champion as well as a four time US Open winner. O’Neal, on the other hand, had been the youngest person ever to win an Academy Award when she was named best supporting actress at aged 10 for her role in Paper Moon. However O’Neal’s adult career had been marred by drug problems and she’d made few movie appearances in years leading up to her marriage. Still the actress appeared to be settling down and shortly after her marriage to McEnroe the couple’s first child, Kevin was born.

Is 9 Too Young For An Oscar? Quvenzhane Wallis Divides Opinion


Quvenzhane Wallis Tatum O'neal Benh Zeitlin

Quvenzhane Wallis is amongst the youngest actors and actresses ever to have been nominated for an Oscar and has just over a week to wait, to determine whether or not she will become the youngest ever actress to win an Oscar, in the Best Actress category, for her performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild. Currently, the youngest person ever to win an Oscar is Tatum O’Neal, who won a Best Supporting Actress award for 1974’s Paper Moon.

Is it right, though, that arguably the highest accolade an actress can win, could be awarded to a novice, with such little experience in the movie industry, when others have been honing their craft for so many years and navigating the pitfalls of the industry? Is it right that a 9 year-old could be considered the best actress in the movie industry right now? The movie’s director Benh Zeitlin spoke to Associated Press and explained why he felt that Quvenzhane is very much deserving of the award, explaining that she has a natural acting instinct, rare in one so young. One day, on set, when Wallis appeared to be struggling with the role, he took her to one side and asked what the problem was. “I can't snap it today. Normally I can snap it,” came her answer. “The fact that she had an internal sense of when she's in character, when she's getting the emotions right and feeling it, is really special even in experienced actors,” remarked Zeitlin, “but especially someone of her age to have that sort of self-awareness."

Thelma Adams, contributing editor at Yahoo! Movies, however, is of the opinion that the nomination is no good for a nine year old girl. “To have her nominated, it's not good for her… this red carpet thing is a grind.” It remains to be seen whether this year’s Best Actress announcement will be a record-breaking one (equally, it could go to 85 year old Emmanuelle Riva, tipping the scales the other way) but even to heap the pressure of an Oscars nomination on a 9 year old girl is a big ask.

Saving Grace B Jones Trailer


After being confined to a mental asylum for 17 years, Grace B Jones gets released following years of abuse and torment at the hands of mental health nurses. She goes to live with her brother Landy Bretthorse, his wife Bea and two young girls in Boonville, Missouri despite Bea's concerns about her instability particularly around the children.  Although Grace seems a nice, friendly person and treats the girls kindly, she has regularly bouts of hysteria which first come about after a boat accident during the calamitous 1951 flood. Is there enough of Grace left to save? Or will the household conclude that sometimes a broken woman is beyond repair?

'Saving Grace B Jones' is based on a true story surrounding first time feature film director Connie Stevens' childhood in the fifties when she was sent away from her home in Brooklyn to Missouri to live with family friends after witnessing a brutal murder. She was to find, that summer, that that terrible crime was not the thing that would have the biggest effect on her the rest of her life. This shocking drama has been co-written by Jeffry Elison in his screenwriting debut and first premiered in 2009 at the Philadelphia Film Festival/Cinefest. It is now available to see in theaters everywhere now.

Director: Connie Stevens

The Runaways Review


Very Good
A fascinating exploration of the effects of fame on young people, this true story is sharply directed and acted. It's also great to see a film about girl power that's this realistic and resonant. And packed with such great songs.

At only 15, Cherie Currie (Fanning) is overwhelmed when Joan Jett (Stewart) asks her to front her band The Runaways. With the encouragement of music promoter Kim Fowley (Shannon), Cherie becomes an iconic presence on stage and off, propelling the group into previously uncharted territory as female rockers. And while Joan and the other bandmates (Maeve, Taylor-Compton and Shawkat) take the lifestyle in their stride, Cherie is continually drawn back to her big sister (Keough) and absent parents (O'Neal and Cullen).

Rescue Me: Season Three Review


Weak
In the first couple of seasons, Denis Leary's FDNY fire opera Rescue Me flung itself through windows and played out in traffic. It busted jaws, opened old wounds just for spite and made grand sport of the whole ungodly train wreck of it all. It was almost as though co-creators Leary and Peter Tolan (The Larry Sanders Show) felt they were going to get canceled any second and so chucked all caution to the wind. In between sitting around the firehouse and indulging in some of the more profane dialogue ever to grace the TV screen (even on basic cable), the characters were subjected to just about any disaster Leary and Tolan could come up with, anything to push these emotionally stunted mugs to the wall and see what devastation they would mete out in response.

But somehow, the pissy little export from the land of the five boroughs -- and rarely has a show so viscerally captured the city's day-to-day, boiling-over, rat-in-a-cage anger -- survived. And this is after sending the wife of the Chief (Jack McGee) into a debilitating Alzheimer's nightmare and not only devastating Tommy Gavin's (Leary) family with the long-term and low-intensity emotional warfare of a never-ending divorce but then, near the end of the second season, having a drunk driver kill Tommy's little boy. That tragedy was then capped off by a nothing-to-lose Uncle Teddy (Lenny Clarke) gunning down the driver in full view of the cops, since a life behind bars seemed preferable to anything else he had going.

Basquiat Review


Weak
Basquiat -- or "Sasquiatch," as I am becoming increasingly fond of calling this film -- may teach you a thing or two. Now you may not want to know any of the stuff you learn during its two long hours of running time, but like it or not, you will learn something.

That something is a base level of information about Jean Michel Basquiat, a Haitian artisté in the early '80s who became Andy Warhol's favorite son. (What is it with Warhol movies this year?) Basquiat rose from living in a cardboard box and decorating the streets of New York with cryptic graffiti to a high-profile yet short-lived career in the highest of art circles. All before his not-too-untimely death at the age of 27 from a (take a guess) heroin overdose.
