‘Call Me by Your Name’: Timothée Chalamet is Learning How to Be a Man, Onscreen and Off
When “Call Me by Your Name” screened at the New York Film Festival last month, several threads from Timothée Chalamet’s 21-year-old life wove together. Above the sold-out, 1,100-seat audience at Alice Tully Hall, he watched the second half from the balcony, seated next to the actor who plays his lover, Armie Hammer, and their director, Luca Guadagnino. Onscreen, Chalamet’s character was 17, the same age he was when Guadagnino met him. At that time, Chalamet was a student at Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts — the Upper West Side inspiration for “Fame” — across the street.

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show — former or current — that handles mental illness well?

Joyce Eng (@joyceeng61), TVGuide.com

Bojack Horseman,” especially Season 4, is almost peerless when it comes to a raw, honest portrayal of mental health. His depression and anxiety aren’t deployed as plot devices like we’ve seen plenty of times elsewhere; they’re just part of him and none of it is rubbed in your face. He’s allowed to be, break down, self-destruct, and the show never offers quick fixes or easy answers. “Stupid Piece of Sh*t” is a brutal depiction, even if you don’t suffer from depression or anxiety,

City On A Hill: Kevin Bacon to star in new crime drama

David Crow Nov 14, 2017

Kevin Bacon will lead City On A Hill, a Showtime pilot from Ben Affleck about Boston crime in the 1990s...

In recent years, when one thinks of Boston, you would be forgiven if what springs to mind is crime drama. After all, Dennis Lehane has made a near cottage industry out of tough tales about tough guys in Dorchester or Southie, such as Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. There was also Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and Ben Affleck’s The Town. Well Affleck and Mystic River’s Kevin Bacon want again to mine that lore while also reimagining a true crime saga for Showtime: City On A Hill.

Based on an idea originated by Affleck, who will executive produce, as well as fellow executive producer Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), City On A Hill will return to Beantown’s not so glorious days in the 1990s,

Top 10 Takeaways From Variety’s Inclusion Summit

Top 10 Takeaways From Variety’s Inclusion Summit
Here are the biggest takeaways from Variety‘s Inclusion Summit, held on Wednesday at the Montage Beverly Hills.

1. Skepticism remains a major obstacle for women reporting sexual misconduct: Attorney and civil rights activist Anita Hill proved to be a timely keynote speaker at Variety‘s Inclusion Summit. Hill, who testified before an all-male Senate Judiciary Committee about her sexual harasser, then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, said female accusers face deep skepticism when speaking out. “One of the things that really is troubling to me,” Hill said, is that “it still takes about 30 women to come forward before one woman is believed. … Our word is as valuable as the word of our abusers.”

2. Diverse casting in films boosts box office performance: CAA agent Talitha Watkins presented data by the agency that analyzed the diversity of film casts since 2014 and compared those films’ weekend box office performances to that of non-diverse films. The data show
