Black Mountain Poets Review

OK

It's fairly obvious that the cast and crew began making this film with only the thinnest outline of a plot and characters, because the story feels like it was made up as they went along. The actors do a great job bringing out the absurd humour in their roles, but without a narrative to hold it together, the movie feels aimless.

It's set in rural Wales, where sisters Lisa and Claire (Sightseers' Alice Lowe and Doll & Em's Dolly Wells) steal a car belonging to a pair of poets and assume their identities so they can hide out at a beat poetry retreat. Lisa is desperate to find a man, and she locks onto the sexy Richard (Downton Abbey's Tom Cullen), a nice but very dim guy whose high-maintenance girlfriend Louise (Rosa Robson) arrives a bit later. The organisers Gareth and Stacey (Richard Elis and Laura Patch) take this small gang on a three-day hiking trip, during which their task is to write a poem for a competition. But everyone is more interested in making sure they're the centre of attention.

There are some great gags along the way, and some wonderfully awkward interaction as these people engage in a farcical amount of flirting and jealousy. Most of it rings false (why would the shark-like Louise fall for the dopey Richard?), but at least it gives the audience something to pay attention to as these goofy people roam around the countryside. Although since it's so freeform, it has no sense of momentum. Lowe and Wells are particularly good at creating characters like this on the fly, hinting at their deeper hopes and yearnings. And Cullen is genuinely adorable. But it's difficult to care what happens to any of these people. And the laughs are a bit too sparse to keep the viewers chuckling.

Desert Dancer Trailer


Afshin Ghaffarian was severely punished at school in Iran for expressing himself through dance in the classroom. When his mother warns him that dance is forbidden by law and that he should keep his talent secret, he discovers an unauthorised dance group at the Saba Arts Center. In his later years, he informs his friends of his desire to begin his own dance group and though they are sceptical at first given the severity of the country's laws, they eventually agree to join him and help him set up an underground secret space to practise. Eventually, tired of the confined space they have built themselves, they take to the apparently isolated desert in order to practise for a stage performance, but it isn't long before the military police get wind of the group and they are forced to cover their tracks.

British Actor Tom Cullen Joins The 'Downton Abbey' Series 4 Cast


Tom Cullen Nigel Harman

Tom Cullen is among the actors stepping into the Downton Abbey world, with the producers of the UK period drama announcing that it’s all change, ahead of its fourth series – with more a handful of new faces mixing with the regulars on the award-winning show.

Those who’ve been watching Charlie Brooker’s warped modern-day drama trilogy Black Mirror on Channel 4 recently will recognize Cullen, who starred in the third and final episode of the first season, and he’ll be joined on Downton by former Eastenders actor Nigel Harman. Harman played Denis Rickman in the BBC One soap and, according to The Huffington Post, he’ll be transferring to the ITV drama as a visiting valet called Green. Cullen, meanwhile, has been cast as Lord Gillingham, an old family friend who, it’s being rumoured, could become a potential new love interest for Lady Mary (played, of course, by Michelle Dockery.)

Weekend Review


Extraordinary
It's clear to see why this gentle gay romantic drama has been compared to Before Sunrise and Once, as it follows two men over the course of two days. But it's also an extremely well-made film packed with its own sharp observations.

After hanging out with his lively group of friends, Russell (Cullen) sneaks off to a gay nightclub looking for companionship. He meets Glen (New), and it isn't until the next morning that they begin to get to know each other. Their one-night stand then stretches out over a weekend of alcohol, drugs and parties as they both struggle to cope with how quickly they have developed intense feelings toward each other. Which is a problem since Glen is moving away on Sunday.

One Friday night, Russell is at a house party with his straight friends. Having enough, he decides to head to a gay bar on his own to pull. No one in particular catches his eyes, until he sees Glen.
