Movie Review – This Beautiful Fantastic (2017)

This Beautiful Fantastic, 2017.

Directed by Simon Aboud.

Starring Jessica Brown Findlay, Jeremy Irvine, Andrew Scott, and Tom Wilkinson.

Synopsis:

Bella Brown (Jessica Brown Findlay) harbours dreams of becoming a children’s author, but first she needs to get her living arrangements sorted after being threatened by the landlord due to the state of her back garden. Things aren’t made any easier thanks to the presence of her misanthropic neighbour (Tom Wilkinson), who’s never happier than when complaining.

The most English of dramas, quintessential you might say, This Beautiful Fantastic drifts along on the charm of its leads, blowing in the wind, making little impact beyond the chinking of bone china.

Simon Aboud’s film feels like the third episode in a six-part Sunday night ITV drama, with characters dropping in-and-out of the plot in charming fashion, before exiting with little desire to see them again, or find out what their story is.

Trailer Watch: Lily James Wants to Write About “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

Juliet Ashton’s (Lily James, “Cinderella”) career is off to a frustrating start in the trailer for “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” As a journalist, she’s not getting the stories she wants. As an author, she’s not getting the audience she wants. In fact, her first book only sold 28 copies worldwide. But a letter from Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”) might mark an end to her career woes.

“Finally, I’ll have something serious to write,” Juliet exclaims when Dawsey informs her of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club that was formed in resistance to the Nazis during World War II. But getting permission to write the story of the club is easier said than done.

While the surviving members are warm towards Juliet, they don’t want her writing about them or their founder,

Whoa - This Awful Black Mirror Character Has a Very Disturbing Connection to Season 1

  • BuzzSugar
The following contains spoilers for seasons one and four of Black Mirror. It's hard not to finish the "Crocodile" episode of Black Mirror's fourth season without a bad taste in your mouth. The focal character, Mia (Andrea Riseborough), gradually transforms from something of a sympathetic character to a despicable monster, murdering several people and a baby to preserve her own lifestyle. And while you might have a distaste for Mia after seeing her personal plight this season, you'll be even more disturbed after reading a fan theory that connects her to one of the saddest episodes from way back in season one. Redditor vegancake purports that Mia may actually be responsible for the f*cked-up world where "15 Million Merits" characters Bingham (Daniel Kaluuya) and Abi (Jessica Brown Findlay) live. Could Mia's sustainable community design actually be the bike-fueled, "merit"-based society where Bing and Abi fall victim to the

‘Black Mirror’ Easter Eggs: How All the Episodes Connect in Charlie Brooker’s Dark Universe

‘Black Mirror’ Easter Eggs: How All the Episodes Connect in Charlie Brooker’s Dark Universe
While the beauty of “Black Mirror” is its standalone anthology storytelling – well, that and its creepy-dark tales of tech innovations gone wrong – once the show got a season under its belt, it started to have a little fun within the world that Charlie Brooker had created. Episodes could feature references to past episodes, either as news stories on the telly or using technology that had been introduced previously.

It’s an ingenious way to give back to devoted viewers at the same time inspiring repeat viewings to catch all the references or experience the original episodes in a new way. As IndieWire’s Steve Greene noted, the season finale of Season 4, “Black Museum,” feels like a fitting end to the entire series, partly because of its narrative structure, but also because of its many nods to past episodes within the confines of the museum.

Have You Ever Noticed This 1 Song Plays in Every Season of Black Mirror?

"You can blame me, try to shame me, and still I'll care for you . . ." If you're a Black Mirror fan, there's a chance the above lyrics have been burned into your memory, whether you realize it or not. In each season of Charlie Brooker's dystopian anthology series, Irma Thomas's "Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand)" plays in one of the episodes. Most recently, the haunting, romantic ballad is a major part of the season four episode "Crocodile." It's also appeared in season one's "Fifteen Million Merits," season two's "White Christmas," and season three's "Men Against Fire." So, what's the deal with that song? According to Brooker, it all started with a creative choice in season one, when Jessica Brown Findlay's Abi belts out the song during a reality competition show, "Hot Shot." It's her one chance to escape a life of endless physical drudgery, and

Original Crow Director Wants the Remake Shut Down

Original Crow Director Wants the Remake Shut Down
After years of delays, the long-awaited reboot of The Crow is finally moving forward, with production starting in early 2018. Jason Momoa is set to star as Eric Draven, under the direction of Corin Hardy, but filmmaker Alex Proyas, who directed the original 1994 adaptation of The Crow, doesn't think this should happen. The filmmaker recently took to social media to deliver an impassioned plea about why he thinks this Crow reboot should be shut down, since he thinks The Crow is still Brandon Lee's movie.

"I was privileged to know Brandon Lee, he was a young, immensely gifted actor with a great sense of humour and a bright future ahead of him. I was also privileged to have been able to call him a friend. Our working relationship as actor/director went beyond mere collaboration. We crafted a movie together which has touched many people.

Every ‘Black Mirror’ Episode Ranked, From Worst to Best

Every ‘Black Mirror’ Episode Ranked, From Worst to Best
Comparing installments of an anthology like “Black Mirror” is an inherently tricky prospect. Most of the entries have a certain “We’re all doomed” streak that runs through them, but whether hopeful or defeatist, there’s something distinctly different animating each of these episodes.

Arranging them in quality doesn’t necessarily make for the ideal viewing order either. Want to bit of uplift with your futurism? Bent on basking in the futility of trying to avoid a planet without dangerous automated attacks against nature? The rhythms of this series rise and fall more on their themes than the wallop each of these stories delivers.

But if you’re a die-hard fan or just wading into Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones’ murky sci-fi waters, a new season is on the horizon, so we’re adding our rankings to the mix.

Liv Tyler Joins Second Season of “Harlots”

Tyler in “The Leftovers”: Paul Schiraldi

Liv Tyler is swapping the all-white attire of the Guilty Remnant for the vivid corsets and powdered wigs of Greek Street. According to Deadline, the “Leftovers” actress has joined the next season of “Harlots” as a series regular. Tyler will reportedly portray the aristocrat Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam.

“Long-held secrets keep [Tyler’s character] in the thrall of Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville), and she is an increasingly desperate victim of Lydia’s blackmail,” the source summarizes. “Trapped in a loveless marriage, Lady Fitz will find an unexpected friend and ally in courtesan Charlotte Wells (Jessica Brown Findlay).”

Created, written, directed, and exec produced by an all-women team, “Harlots” follows the rivalry between two madams in 18th century London, Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) and Lydia Quigley, as well as the lives of the women they employ. The May finale of the Hulu/ITV drama’s first season saw Margaret’s daughter Charlotte, the most revered harlot in the city, defect to Lydia’s brothel.

Coky Giedroyc (“The Sound of Music Live”) and China Moo-Young (“Call the Midwife”) helmed three installments each of “Harlots’” inaugural eight-episode season, and Jill Robertson (“Last Tango in Halifax”) directed two. Per Deadline, Giedroyc will serve as lead director on Season 2, which is expected to debut sometime in 2018.

Tyler starred as Meg Abbott, a grieving daughter turned cult leader, on the HBO dystopian series “The Leftovers.” The show ended after three seasons in June. You can catch Tyler next in “Wildling,” a fantasy drama currently in post-production. She’s also filming “Gunpowder,” a BBC miniseries about Guy Fawkes and his followers.

Liv Tyler Joins Second Season of “Harlots” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
