A Gorgeous New Emma Adaptation Strikes Just the Right Balance of Modern and Authentic

In the days before her novels were adapted into swoony TV miniseries, reimagined as zombie-themed novelties and spun off into little gifty-type advice books, Jane Austen felt like a well-kept secret. Before Austenmania took hold, scholars studied her and avid readers adored her—she was hardly obscure. But suddenly, people in book clubs everywhere were reading, and adoring, her. Longtime Austen lovers, even if they rejoiced in her posthumous superstardom, couldn’t help feeling a little miffe...

Frisch getrennt? Mit diesen Büchern überstehst du den Valentinstag

Trennungen sind hart. Du weinst sehr viel, musst ständig an die Person denken, die dir das Herz gebrochen hat und fragst dich, warum gerade du so einen Schmerz verdient hast. Das alles zu überstehen und auch ohne ihn oder sie glücklich zu sein, scheint gerade am Anfang wie eine unlösbare Aufgabe. Doch darum geht es im Grunde nach einem Beziehungsaus: Eine neue Normalität zu schaffen und zu lernen, wer man ohne ihn oder sie eigentlich ist.Dieser Prozess braucht aber seine Zeit.

Why are Oscar voters still afraid of two men having hot, steamy sex?

Boy meets boy. Boy kisses boy. But boy, oh boy, they both had better keep their clothes on and step away from the bed. That seems to be the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ rule when it comes to straight male actors portraying LGBTQ characters onscreen. Breaking them for just a few moments of screen time may have cost Rocketman star Taron Egerton a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his acclaimed interpretation of musical icon Elton John in the 2019 musical biopic.

Why 1917 should win the best picture Oscar

We start our annual series with the frontrunner: Sam Mendes’s cinematic groundbreaker, which immerses us in the horror of war as never beforeEver since All Quiet on the Western Front, the least we’ve come to expect from a war-is-hell actioner is grungy realism. Yet in Sam Mendes’s 1917, the trenches are dry, wide and handsomely constructed. Uniforms look fresh out of Brooks Brothers. Even the rats seem pet-shop friendly. The flatlands of Flanders improbably furnish rapids and a plunging cataract...

Scriptnotes, Bonus: 1917 Q&A, Transcript

The original post for this episode can be found here. John August: Hey, it’s John. So, one perk of the Writers Guild is that almost every week there are screenings of new films, often followed by Q&A sessions with the screenwriters. This past Saturday the film was 1917 and I sat down with the writers after the film to talk about the process. There are spoilers, obviously, and really truly if at all possible I’d urge you to see the movie with as information as possible in advance. That’s how I s...

A New ‘Love Actually’ Parody Musical Skewers the Classic Rom-Com Through Song

For me, Richard Curtis’ 2003 film Love Actually is half “guilty pleasure with twinkles and earned fuzzies” and half “cluttered product-of-its-time with stand-out problematics.”  16 years after its theatrical premiere, Love Actually represents cheesy holiday cheer for some and eye-rolling for those who don’t find romantic comedy their thing. It weaves a loosely threaded web of nine pairs pursuing, maintaining, saving their love—mostly romantic but some platonic—as Christmas creeps arou...

The 10 Best Films of the Decade About Disabilities

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The importance and expansion of representation and diversity continue to reverberate throughout the film industry. So now feels like just as good a time as any to reflect on a personal area near and dear to my own heart; disability in cinema. However, one doesn’t need to specifically hone in on the past two years or so (when representation and diversity were really pressured to improve), for the entire decade has a sampling of terrific fi...

1917 Is a Movie About the Horrors of War, Told With a Devotion to Beauty and Life

A good movie can be built from any number of components: a great story, distinctive visuals, a haunting score. But sometimes a face can take you 90 percent of the way. And although Sam Mendes’ extraordinary World War I drama 1917 is notable for the technical feat of its cinematography—Mendes and director of photography Roger Deakins have constructed it to be perceived as one unbroken shot—the true key to its effectiveness is the face of one of its central actors, George MacKay. MacKay plays...

Final ‘1917’ Trailer: War is Hell (and Filmed in One Unbroken Shot)

1917 is a war movie unlike any you’ve seen before. Sam Mendes‘ World War I saga unfolds as if it’s one very long, unbroken shot.

Now there’s one final 1917 trailer to set you up for what Mendes and company have in store.
