“Nancy”

Christina Choe — recipient of an HBOAccess® Directing Fellowship and a MacDowell Colony artist residency — is a writer and director whose short films have screened at Telluride Film Festival and SXSW. Her prior credits include shorts “The Queen,” “Flow,” and “I Am John Wayne.”

“Nancy” will premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on January 20.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Cc: Craving connection with others, Nancy creates elaborate online identities and hoaxes to get close to people. After her mother dies, she begins to think she could be the long lost daughter of a couple whose child went missing 30 years ago. “Nancy” is psychodrama about love, intimacy, and trust — and what happens when lies become truth.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Cc: My obsession with the blurry line between truth and lies — and documentary and fiction — is a constant theme in my work and my life.

The 10 film performances that deserve more awards attention this year

The many guilds and academies are forgetting a number of impactful turns, including from Sally Hawkins and Michael Fassbender

The Golden Globes have come and gone, the Bafta and Guild nominee lists are out, and the Oscar race appears to be taking clear shape in advance of the nomination announcement on 23 January. Happily, it remains a more lively and contested one than usual in the acting races: in no category has a single name hogged the critics’ and precursor awards in the manner of a Helen Mirren for The Queen or a Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood.

Why Queen Elizabeth 'Is Entirely Disinterested in Jewelry' — Despite Access to the Crown Jewels!

Why Queen Elizabeth 'Is Entirely Disinterested in Jewelry' — Despite Access to the Crown Jewels!
One of the most glamorous perks of being the monarch is access to all the priceless jewels, but it turns out Queen Elizabeth isn’t the biggest fan of all that sparkles!

In a revealing new documentary, Queen Elizabeth speaks rather matter-of-factly about the royal jewels — and there’s no denying her sense of detachment. While she takes the Crown Jewels’ cultural and symbolic role very seriously, she’s just not interested in jewelry on its own, an expert says.

The Queen is entirely disinterested in jewelry as a person,” says Alastair Bruce, who spoke with the Queen for The Coronation documentary,

The Madness of King George

It’s great when a fancy costume picture really has something to say — Alan Bennett’s crazy tale of a king’s episode of mental illness becomes a highly entertaining comedy of errors, but with serious personal and political ramifications. Nigel Hawthorne is exceptionally good as the sovereign whose brain has de-railed; Helen Mirren, Ian Holm, Rupert Everett and Amanda Donohoe variously try to help him — or steal his crown.

New Featurette For ‘The Crown’ Season Two: ‘Evolution Of The Crown’

Netflix has debuted a new featurette for their upcoming second season of The Crown, the multi-million-dollar series focusing on the British monarchy.

The Crown, a Netflix original series, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play, The Audience, the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).

Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan after a devastating scandal, the second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.

Two Harry Potter Stars Were Honored by the Queen This Week
Harry Potter fans will definitely recognize two familiar faces who met the Queen this week. Actresses Julie Walters, who played Molly Weasley, and Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy) both visited Buckingham Palace on Tuesday to take part in their investiture ceremony. Julie Walters was made a dame (leading us all to question why it took until 2017 for such a national treasure to get the honor) while McCrory was awarded an OBE for her services to drama.

Sliff 2017 Review – The Hippopotamus

From across the pond comes a pitch black comedy set amongst the veddy, veddy upper classes. Proving that Larry David doesn’t have a monopoly in the Us as an ill-tempered cranky curmudgeon, celebrated actor/ writer Stephen Fry gives us a most unlikely screen hero, middle-aged failed poet, reviled theatre critic, and “boozehound” Ted Wallace. He’s played with swaggering bravado by Roger Allam, an actor known for his deep baritone, who has amassed a long list of supporting roles (The Queen, The Book Thief) and now proves that he’s more than ready for a leading role.

Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy for The Crown seasons 3 and 4

It looks like Netflix’s The Crown will get quite a shake-up in its future seasons. Come Season 3, Claire Foy will no longer portray Queen Elizabeth II, but will be replaced in the role by Broadchurch’s Olivia Colman.

The change is to better portray the key characters as they age, something series creator Peter Morgan had always planned. Each season does cover nearly a decade in the life of the Queen, with Season 1 covering 1947 – 1955 and Season 2 covering 1957 – 1963. Based on this, Matt Smith will also be replaced eventually in the role of Prince Phillip.

Colman has also starred in The Lobster, Hot Fuzz and AMC’s miniseries The Night Manager, based on the John le Carre novel. She won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her role and was also nominated for an Emmy. She will be seen next in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express.

Helen Mirren to Receive the Chaplin Award

Mirren in “The Hundred-Foot Journey

Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, Olivier, and Tony Award-winner Helen Mirren is set to add yet another trophy to her well-used mantle. The “Eye in the Sky” star will receive The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award, a press release has announced. The gala, set to be held April 30, 2018 at the Lincoln Center, will feature movie and interview clips with Mirren, whose career spans over 50 years.

According to the release, the event “will be attended by a host of notable presenters,” so it seems likely that some of Mirren’s co-stars and directors will be reflecting on her incredible body of work and her famous sense of humor.

Mirren’s career kicked off in 1967, when she began acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Her many credits in film, TV, and the stage include “The Queen,” “Prime Suspect,” and “The Audience.”

“It is an honor and a pleasure for us to present Helen Mirren with our 45th Chaplin Award,” said Ann Tenenbaum, the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Board Chairman. “From housemaid to Queen and everything in between, Ms. Mirren has delivered masterful performances of complex characters, upending stereotype after stereotype along the way.”

Previous Chaplin Award honorees include Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, and Meryl Streep.

Earlier this year Mirren gave the commencement address at Tulane University. The “Woman in Gold” actress has been outspoken about gender inequality in Hollywood, but as she revealed at the event, she initially shied away from identifying as a feminist. “ believed in the obvious: that women were as capable and as energetic and as inspiring as men, but to join a movement called feminism just seemed too didactic, too political for me,” she explained. But she eventually had a change of heart. “I have come to understand that feminism is not an abstract idea but it’s a necessity if we — and really by ‘we,’ I mean you guys — are to move us forward and not backward into ignorance and fearful jealousy,” she told the attendees. “So now, I am a declared feminist and I would encourage you to be the same.”

Mirren will next be seen in “The Leisure Seeker,” a road trip comedy that follows a couple’s journey in their Rv. The film hits theaters January 19, 2018.

Helen Mirren to Receive the Chaplin Award was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The society's board chairman Ann Tenenbaum said: “It is an honour and a pleasure for us to present Helen Mirren with our 45th Chaplin Award. From housemaid to Queen and everything in between, Ms. Mirren has delivered masterful performances of complex characters, upending stereotype after stereotype along the way.”
