Cynthia Nixon Drew On The Ferocity Of A Quiet Passion


Cynthia Nixon

Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon isn't the first person you'd think of if you were making a biopic about the death-obsessed 19th century poet Emily Dickinson. And indeed, Nixon admits that it's "definitely, absolutely" the most challenging part she's played.

Cynthia Nixon in A Quiet PassionCynthia Nixon in A Quiet Passion

She says it wasn't easy "depicting someone who at times is so full of love and excitement about the world, but also has such deep emotional and physical pain." Never married, Dickinson died at age 55 after a long struggle with kidney disease. The majority of her poems were published after her death.

A Quiet Passion Trailer


Nineteenth-century American poet Emily Dickinson might be well known now for her classic catalogue of work, but when she was alive she was elusive to most. As much as she was always a bright, intelligent and well-behaved child, as she grew older she disappointed her father Edward by refusing to marry or give herself to the church. Instead, she preferred her own company; shutting herself inside and becoming so reclusive and reluctant of guests that she was noticed by many. She shared few friendships in her lifetime, and even those she had - like that with sister-in-law Susan Gilbert - were wrought with pain and uncertainty. She was the victim of a number of bereavements in her lifetime, experiences that would have a massive effect on her health and her later popular literary work.

Video - Petra Nemcova Is Lady In Red At 15th Annual ACE Awards


Fashion conscious celebrities were in attendance at the 15th Annual ACE Awards in New York recently. British model Agyness Deyn wore a black dress that was see through in some places. Other celebrities to opt for a black dress were Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon and socialite Nicole Richie, who wowed photographers and fans alike with a stunning floor length dress.

Czech model Petra Nemcova stood out by contrast in a bright red dress, as did Law and Order actress Stephanie March

Lymelife Review


Good
Offbeat and funny but thoroughly realistic, this period drama explores issues of family, youth and social pressure through the eyes of a 15-year-old who's just starting to realise that people perhaps are more complicated than he ever imagined.

Scott (Rory Culkin) is a teen in 1980 Long Island, where his parents (Baldwin and Hennessy) are planning to build a new house while his meathead big brother (Keiran Culkin) is just back from basic training. He has a crush on his neighbour Adriana (Roberts), whose mother (Nixon) is failing to cope with the fact that her husband (Hutton) has Lyme disease. Both families are struggling with social mobility, marital stress and the tensions of the time they live in.

Not to mention some very bad decisions they make.

Sex And The City 2 Review


Good
Once again, Michael Patrick King packs four movies into two and a half hours, and yet there's not quite enough substance for one film. There plenty of snappy one-liners and silly situations, but it will severely test the patience of any non-fan.

Two years later, Carrie and Big (Parker and Noth) are settled into a rather dry married life, Samantha (Cattrall) is carrying on like a single girl, and Miranda and Charlotte (Nixon and Davis) are grappling with work and family, respectively. Their men are patient to a fault, even when attending the uber-gay wedding of Stanford and Anthony (Garson and Cantone). Then Samantha gets a freebie luxury holiday in Abu Dhabi and the girlfriends are off for madcap adventures involving camels, sand dunes, morality police and old boyfriends.

Sex And The City 2 Trailer


Despite the everyday trials and tribulations of growing old, motherhood and balancing fulltime careers; Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are still friends and absolutely fabulous. Well not that fabulous, Miranda and Charlotte find coping with motherhood a bit of an uphill struggle. Carrie's relationship with Mr Big is going well but they aren't quite as close to having a family as Carrie wants, and Samantha? Well, she's just Samantha. The girls decide it's time for a holiday together, Abu Dhabi will be the location, it's just the break the girls need.

Lymelife Review


Excellent
In Lymelife, Cynthia Nixon, as real estate agent Melissa Bragg in a New York suburb in 1979, looks skinny and a shade skanky, like an aging out-of-town version of a T. Rex groupie. And yet here she is in the real estate office trying to sell parcels in a housing development to people with from other countries. "It's the American Dream, Mr. Patel. On Long Island." Her boss, Mickey Bartlett (Alec Baldwin, he of the reptilian gaze and surface-to-air anger), is planning to become a millionaire in one year developing new homes in a place he calls Bartletown (what else?). And since they are next-door neighbors, the two are not so secretly engaged in schtupping one another. Mickey's wife Brenda (Jill Hennessy) is trying to tune him out but the song is getting monotonous. Melissa's husband Charlie (Timothy Hutton), spends his time in cheap gray bargain suits, sweating profusely and lurking in the basement, imaging that deer are trying to psychically commune with him. Charlie is slowly slipping away (possibly) to the effects of Lyme disease. Or he may just be another strung out sixties reject (he says the Lyme disease feels like "perpetual acid trip").

Lyme disease in the Long Island burb is the horror malady of the moment, as constructing new homes smack dab in the middle of the woods may be beautiful but it is also nightmarish. Radio announcers point out that Lyme disease causes psychiatric disturbances and severe mental disorders. Mothers weep at the thought of their kids contracting it and duct-tape the kiddies' clothing together to keep out the ticks. But if Lyme disease is the rampant contagion that all fear, it must have seeped into the residents' skulls and infected their brains. Because the only sensible parental character in Lymelife is Charlie, and he is obviously nuts.

The Babysitters Review


Bad
In a particularly uncomfortable scene is an otherwise forgettable Christmas holiday comedy, Deck the Halls, two middle-aged neighbors and rivals, Danny De Vito and Matthew Broderick, whoop it up like horn-dogs when, during a holiday pageant, a group of scantily clad girls saunter out onstage and bump and grind to the music. De Vito whistles and makes leering comments to Broderick, zeroing in on one particularly fetching cavorting nymphet. Only too late does De Vito realize that the sexy teen is, in fact, his own daughter. De Vito and Broderick refuse to lock eyes and the matter is dropped. In the soon to be released War Inc., implied incest is also on display when Hilary Duff slinks over to John Cusack and throws herself on the table in front of him, awaiting ravishment. Cusack reacts by throwing up, his subconscious telling him that Duff is his long-lost daughter.

Don't get me wrong. Pedophilia can be a scintillating subject of film fun from satires (Lolita), searing Southern melodramas (take your pick from Tennessee Williams), masterpieces (M), or to the unclassifiable (Happiness). The problem comes when filmmakers light the flame and have no idea where to carry it or how to extinguish it. Such is the case with David Ross's confused The Babysitters.

One Last Thing... Review


OK
One Last Thing... was another one of those experimental films -- experimental from a business standpoint, not from an artistic one -- in which the film would be released in theaters and on DVD on the same day.

I have no idea what theaters played the film -- certainly none in my town -- but you shouldn't have much trouble finding the DVD, a medium to which this movie thoroughly belongs.

Little Manhattan Review


Excellent
In a year that has seen both Simpson sisters on screen, Scarlett Johansson in a Michael Bay movie, and Scotty from Boogie Nights playing Truman Capote, it's fitting that the forerunner for the feel-good movie of the year is Little Manhattan, a romantic comedy focusing on two grammar school students. What's surprising is that more people haven't heard of it. It's that good.

Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) is a 10-year-old kid whose life is, as he puts it, "very fulfilling," despite his parents' pending divorce. His summer days consist of basketball, video games, and hanging out with his friends. His decision to take karate is looked upon as just one more part of a life well-lived. That is until longtime schoolmate Rosemary Telesco (newcomer Charlie Ray) becomes his sparring partner.

The Manhattan Project Review


Excellent
What kid doesn't want to build a nuclear bomb? This fantastic journey follows a teen (Christopher Collet, long since retired from acting) as he discovers a plutonium skunkworks in his suburban backyard, proceeds to steal some of it, and build his own nuclear weapon to enter into the science fair. It's a wild ride and tons of fun, with comedy, genuine tension, and lots of geeky science fun. Highly underrated... watch especially for Cynthia Nixon as Collet's love interest -- about 15 years before she'd hit it big on Sex and the City, with a far, far worse haircut.

Tanner '88 Review


Very Good
Originally made as a series for broadcast on HBO during the 1988 presidential primary season, Robert Altman's Tanner '88 charts the unsuccessful presidential bid of a fictional Michigan congressman named Jack Tanner (played by Altman stalwart Michael Murphy), beginning with the New Hampshire primary and continuing through the Democratic National Convention. The series was written by Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau on an episode-by-episode basis in order to stay abreast of actual developments in the '88 campaign; it ran for 11 episodes then and is currently slated for a mini-update of four new episodes. And just in time for the upcoming elections, the Criterion Collection has made the entire series available on DVD.

Politics have changed in the past 16 years - they had to have, right? - but the first thing that strikes you upon revisiting Tanner '88 today is how familiar this whole circus seems. Squint your eyes, change the names - throw in, say, a Dick Cheney and remove a Bob Dole or two - and the experience of watching Tanner '88 seems eerily close to watching current campaign coverage on CNN. In a clever, recently filmed introduction to the first episode (one of these new intros appears before each of the 11), Tanner remarks in a modern "interview" that the business of campaigning changed after that year. After '88, he says, "the curtain on [candidates'] private lives got pulled back... In '88 Johnny Carson might have done a couple of slightly risque jokes about Hart. But ten years later Jay Leno is doing six blowjob jokes a night on Clinton." Except that the candidate is make-believe, everything about this sentiment sounds authentic. Political campaigns did indeed move closer to show business; the only question is when?

I Am The Cheese Review

From the beloved novel comes this low-budget, much-maligned affair, a film that has become in many circles the antithesis of the book they loved.

Igby Goes Down Review


Excellent

Snarky, 17-year-old, silver-spoon-raised Igby Slocumb has been booted out of every prestigious (and not-so-prestigious) prep school on the East Coast -- and one military academy too. A bored, intelligent, resourceful and willful screw-up, he's almost proud of this record, even though he'd be the first to admit it's a cry for attention.

With a blue-blooded, pill-popping, self-absorbed mother (the hilariously dry Susan Sarandon) dying of breast cancer at home; a materialistically hollow, young Republican brother (a perfectly cast Ryan Phillippe) shining at Columbia University; and an asylum-committed, schizophrenic father (Bill Pullman) who haunts all his childhood memories, Igby (Kieran Culkin) seems to be the only Slocumb sagacious enough to emerge a better person from his sad yet comically dysfunctional family.

So despite the title of this tart black comedy -- "Igby Goes Down" -- its young hero is determined to stay on his feet. He's grown a sardonic, wry sense of humor (if not a tough skin) and become an expert at running away from home. Now, having escaped the limousine taking him to yet another upscale boarding school, he's on the loose in Manhattan, having resolved to get by on his own (or at least with the help of his mother's American Express card), even if he's not entirely sure what that entails.
