‘The Leisure Seeker’ Film Review: Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland Highlight Touching Road Movie

‘The Leisure Seeker’ Film Review: Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland Highlight Touching Road Movie
An American road movie made by an Italian director with Canadian and British stars, “The Leisure Seeker” is a gentle but pointed lament for things that are lost and things that are fading, be they personal memories or a national sense of community. The film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, takes director Paolo Virzi down the east coast of the U.S., as stars Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren drive a battered 1975 Winnebago (which she’s dubbed “the Leisure Seeker”) from their home in Massachusetts to Ernest Hemingway’s house in the Florida Keys. It is in parts a light,

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction
Philip Seymour Hoffman's partner of over 14 years remembers when she first noticed that something was "brewing" with the actor.

Mimi O’Donnell opens up in a moving essay for Vogue's January issue about first meeting Hoffman at a theater in New York City in 1999 and the beautiful love story that ensued, which included the two parenting three children, Cooper, 14, Tallulah, 11 and Willa, 9. "When I look back at how close we all were, I wonder whether Phil somehow knew that he was going to die young," she reflects. "He never said those words, but he lived his life as if time was precious."

After being sober for well over a decade, O'Donnell says Hoffman was faced with a lot of trials all at once, which led to him returning to drugs and ultimately dying from a heroin overdose in early February 2014 at the age of 46.

"His longtime therapist died of cancer, which was devastating

The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!

  • PEOPLE.com
The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!
Among the many surprises in the Golden Globes movie nominations, announced Monday, were bids for a movie best known for no longer starring Kevin Spacey and the lack of love shown to Wonder Woman.

All the Money in the World, the Ridley Scott-directed film about the John Paul Getty III kidnapping, received a nod for best supporting actor Christopher Plummer, whose performance as rich old J. Paul Getty was shot and edited into the movie in only the past month — seemingly the blink of an eye — after Spacey, amid escalating allegations about inappropriate sexual behavior, was completely edited out.

Turning 40: 3 Great Movies Released in 1978

We live in an age of revivals, reboots, and remakes. Hollywood seems to have lost the taste for original stories, preferring to reach back to the successful movies of the past, hoping to be able to play it safe and pocket a hefty profit in the process. Sometimes, it works – the remake of Stephen King’s “It” has proven this – and other times, it doesn’t – just think of the dismal reviews (and pretty lousy revenues) of this year’s “The Mummy”, which might have been a profitable movie per se, with its $400 million-plus debut against a $375 million budget, buy a disappointing debut for Universal’s “Dark Universe”.

Next year, many of the most famous and well-known movie franchises of our times will celebrate their thirtieth anniversaries. Some of these will be marked by remakes hitting the screens, either in the cinemas or through other mediums, such as video games,

Helen Mirren to Be Honored at Aarp’s Movies for Grownups Awards

Mirren in “The Hundred-Foot Journey”: Francois Duhamel/DreamWorks

Helen Mirren embraces being an adult — which is no easy feat in an industry that marginalizes women over 40. She’s called out Hollywood’s ageism as “fucking outrageous” and spoken about how she’s much more confident and willing to tell people to “fuck off” now than when she was younger. So it makes perfect sense that Mirren will receive her next accolade at the 17th annual Movies for Grownups Awards.

According to the Associated Press, the Oscar winner will take home the Movies for Grownups’ Career Achievement Award on February 5. Established by the Aarp in 2002, the Movies for Grownups Awards honor films and performers with “a grown-up state of mind.”

Mirren stated that she is “greatly honored” to receive the Career Achievement Award and described film as “the ultimate mirror up to nature.”

Lead Actor Oscar Race Is Battle of Marquee Names

Lead Actor Oscar Race Is Battle of Marquee Names
The lead actor race showcases a wide variety of performances, from vets playing real people (Gary Oldman blustering as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour” and Jake Gyllenhaal as Boston Marathon survivor Jeff Bauman in “Stronger”) to newcomers including Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) and Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”) portraying fictional characters. There are also previous winners such as Denzel Washington in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” and and Daniel Day-Lewis and Tom Hanks in two films that have yet to screen, “Phantom Thread” and “The Post.” But the prestige behind their projects are enough to put the lead actors in a frontrunner position. Hugh Jackman has both “The Greatest Showman” and “Logan,” but appears to be centering on the latter for awards, and could land another nom. And James Franco channeling Tommy Wiseau in “The Disaster Artist” could just be crazy enough to pull off an upset. Then there’s Matt Damon, an Oscar winner

The first season revolves around the story of the real life kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (played by Harris Dickinson) and stars Donald Sutherland as oil baron J. Paul Getty alongside Hilary Swank, Brendan Fraser, and Michael Esper; take a look below…

“The first installment takes place in 1973, when the young Getty is kidnapped in Rome and his mafia captors are banking on a multi-million dollar ransom. After all, what rich family wouldn’t pay for the return of a loved one? ‘Trust’ charts the young man’s nightmare ordeal at the hands of kidnappers who cannot understand why nobody seems to want their captive back. The Italian police think it’s a prank and decline to investigate. Paul’s father is lost in a heroin daze in London and refuses to answer the phone.

‘Trust’ Trailer: Danny Boyle’s ‘All the Money in the World’ Rival Stars Donald Sutherland in Kevin Spacey’s Former Role

If Christopher Plummer need any tips on playing John Paul Getty after replacing Kevin Spacey on “All the Money in the World,” perhaps he should call up Donald Sutherland. Sutherland will play the oil tycoon on Danny Boyle’s new series for FX, “Trust,” which released a promising first teaser trailer today. With Ridley Scott’s take on the same event suddenly mired in controversy, it will be fascinating to see how Boyle’s measures up. (And perhaps another reason why Scott is so determined to finish his film quickly).

Trust” maps the Getty family legacy, beginning with the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III. If ordered for more seasons, the series would explore other chapters in the oil family’s history.

‘Trust’ Teaser: Look Out Ridley Scott, Donald Sutherland Is Chillingly Impressive

Part of the reason why Ridley Scott and Sony have been in such a big rush to get “All The Money In The World” out next month — even if it means replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer for last minute, expensive reshoots — has been to beat FX‘s “Trust.” The series from Danny Boyle tackles the exact same story as Scott’s movie, and if the first teaser is anything to go by, Sony has good reason to sweat.

Agnès Varda Has Mixed Feelings About Her Honorary Oscar, But Loves Creating Art on the Margins
The morning after receiving her honorary Oscar at the Governors’ Ball, visions of dancing with Angelina Jolie still danced in Agnès Varda’s head. “Can you believe they were surrounding me, protecting me?” she said, holding court on the brick Beverly Hills patio at the French Consul’s residence in Beverly Hills, wreathed by French journalists. Among those who came to see her receive the award were National Centre for Cinema and the Moving Image president Frédérique Bredin, Unifrance president Serge Toubiana, and Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Frémaux.

“I’m totally honored, I’m totally pleased, I’m touched to tears that they did such a long trip to be with me,” said Varda, grasping an actual pair of rose-colored glasses. She sat poolside at a circular table, beside a teapot, echoing Faye Dunaway’s famous morning-after Oscar photograph 40 years prior. However, instead of a satin robe and stilettos,
