‘The Morning Show’: How the #MeToo Movement Led to Big Changes on Apple’s Flagship Drama

‘The Morning Show’: How the #MeToo Movement Led to Big Changes on Apple’s Flagship Drama
Since it was first announced in November 2017, many rumors have popped up about “The Morning Show.” The Jennifer Aniston- and Reese Witherspoon-starring drama would be a family-friendly look at morning talk shows. It would steer away from topical, controversial content. It would only be available to people with Apple devices.

None of this is true, and as we approach its November 1 release date, the curtain over the biggest Apple TV+ series in the inaugural lineup is slowly being drawn back. During a press conference Sunday afternoon — fittingly held at a Hollywood hotel that hasn’t even opened yet — Aniston and Witherspoon joined co-star Steve Carell and producers Kerry Ehrin, Michael Ellenberg, and director Mimi Leder to discuss the series’ veiled development.

Speaking to the show’s mature and timely content — which is very much a part of the hourlong drama — the group addressed how the #MeToo movement affected their story.

Callie Khouri, Megan Hilty, Jessie Mueller Celebrate ‘Patsy & Loretta’ at Nashville Bow

  • Variety
Women supporting women was the main topic of conversation Wednesday night at the Tennessee premiere of Lifetime’s new film, “Patsy & Loretta,” held south of Nashville at the Franklin Theater. Starring Megan Hilty (“Smash”) as Patsy Cline and Jessie Mueller (Tony-nominated for “Waitress” and a winner for “Beautiful”) as Loretta Lynn — pictured above, with their wax counterparts — the film shines a spotlight on the friendship that formed between them before Cline’s untimely death in a plane crash in 1963.

Director Callie Khouri, the Oscar-winning writer of “Thelma and Louise” and creator of the ABC/Cmt series “Nashville,” has a history of creating powerful narratives around strong women. “I think the story of women’s friendships has never been told in enough depth,” the filmmaker told Variety at the premiere. “For women to be helping each other back when everybody thought that there was only one slot, to see somebody

Critic's Notebook: How 'Hustlers' Broke the Girl Gang Movie Curse

Critic's Notebook: How 'Hustlers' Broke the Girl Gang Movie Curse
I knew Hustlers was going to be different not when 50-year-old J.Lo effortlessly whirled along a stripper pole in an Oscar-worthy showstopper as powerful as any tearful song or righteous monologue — but when her protégée Dorothy (Constance Wu) actually asked for her character's help at all.

In one of the early scenes in the based-on-a-true-story crime drama, fledgling erotic dancer Dorothy spies seasoned Ramona (Jennifer Lopez) working the strip club stage and gawps at her spellbinding charisma. Your stomach drops, imagining an All About Eve trajectory. When little Dorothy approaches Ramona on the rooftop of the club during ...

Claudette Colbert movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘It Happened One Night,’ ‘Cleopatra,’ ‘Midnight’

Claudette Colbert movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘It Happened One Night,’ ‘Cleopatra,’ ‘Midnight’
With her big eyes, apple-shaped face and heart-shaped mouth, Claudette Colbert was one of the most distinguished and distinctive actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Era. Her combination of European flair and down-to-earth naturalness, as well as natural beauty and stage-trained voice, contributed to her ability to portray a wide range of memorable characters.

Born in France on September 13, 1903, as Emilie Claudette Chauchoin, her family moved to the United States when she was three years old, taking a residence in a fifth-floor walk-up in Manhattan (Colbert later claimed years of climbing those stairs contributed to her famed legs). As a youth, she was interested in art and aspired to be a fashion designer. However, fate intervened and she was encouraged to try acting, making her Broadway debut in 1923 and taking the stage name “Claudette Colbert.”

Venice Film Review: ‘Saturday Fiction’

Venice Film Review: ‘Saturday Fiction’
From 1937 to 1941, Shanghai was dubbed a “solitary island” in that, alone in China after the Japanese invasion, there were areas within it that were under international control, namely the French and British Concessions. They were, undoubtedly, teeming with spies and collaborators and double agents, but it strains credibility that they could have been anything like as fraught and riven as the French-administered enclave in the 1941 of Sixth Generation Chinese director Lou Ye’s grandiloquently incoherent misfire “Saturday Fiction.” Starring/wasting the luminous Gong Li, the black and white film strays further away from the observational art-house calm of Lou’s 2014 “Blind Massage,” and plows deeper into the tangled thickets of dubious motivation and incomprehensible behavior that marred his last film, police procedural “The Shadow Play.”

It takes some time to work out what on earth is going on, largely because of Lou’s most confusing and counterproductive decision, which is

‘The Truth’ Film Review: Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche Grapple With Honesty and Each Other

‘The Truth’ Film Review: Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche Grapple With Honesty and Each Other
In the latest film from Hirokazu Kore-eda (director of the 2018 Palme d’Or winner “Shoplifters”), Catherine Deneuve plays a legendary French film star who has just published a memoir titled, like this movie, “The Truth.” It’s a promise that her book comes nowhere near fulfilling; as for Kore-eda’s first film made outside his native Japan, it’s a fascinating exploration of the fallibility of memory and of how the truths we tell ourselves so frequently outweigh an empirical certainty.

Deneuve’s Fabienne falls into the great screen tradition of actresses capable of great emotion on stage or screen but less so off. (Think Bette Davis’ Margo Channing in “All About Eve” or Gena Rowlands’ Myrtle Gordon in “Opening Night.”) She also shares some DNA with Ingrid Bergman’s musician in “Autumn Sonata” or Shirley MacLaine’s movie star in “Postcards From the Edge” — have we acknowledged how much

Gary Oldman to Play Citizen Kane Scribe for David Fincher

David Crow Jul 11, 2019

Gary Oldman will play Herman Mankiewicz for David Fincher in Mank. It will cover the making of Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz.

David Fincher and Gary Oldman finally working together feels like it’s destined to be movie history, but the fact that it’s occurring for a Herman Mankiewicz biopic is doubly on-the-nose. The film, which will reveal how a newspaper man became the screenwriter of what many consider to be the finest film ever produced, 1941’s Citizen Kane, is set-up for Fincher at Netflix, indicative of an ever growing relationship between the streaming service and Oscar nominated auteur. It also promises to be a personal film for the director as his own father, Jack Fincher, wrote the screenplay.

The film, which is currently titled Mank, is one Fincher has wanted to make since 1997—so after Se7en and The Game but before Fight Club

Lucifer Season 4 Episode 4 Review: All About Eve

Lucifer's first girlfriend re-enters his life, and Linda and Amenadiel prepare for the changes their angel baby will have on their lives.

This Lucifer review contains spoilers.

Lucifer Season 4 Episode 4

“Maybe you read about it in a little book called The Bible.”

No matter how much any of us want Chloe and Lucifer to end up together, it’s virtually impossible to dislike the childlike exuberance of the Bible’s first woman as she re-enters Lucifer’s life after a few thousand year absence. And while Chloe struggles to rebuild her personal and professional lives after the falling out with her partner, “All About Eve” provides a delightfully introspective glimpse into the circumstances behind Eve’s departure from Heaven and her desire to party on Earth with her ex.

Inbar Lavi (Imposters) takes on the iconic biblical temptress and plays Eve with a lovely sense of naivete completely out of place in contemporary Los Angeles.

‘Network’ Director Ivo Van Hove On Old Movies, New Dances, David Bowie And What ‘All About Eve’ & ‘West Side Story’ Say Today – Tony Watch Q&A

Network, All About Eve, West Side Story – a really good day’s Netflix queue as well as the latest entries on the resume of Belgian-born theater director Ivo van Hove. Tony-nominated for his direction of Broadway’s Network, the artistic director of the Toneelgroep Amsterdam has built a reputation for experimental revisions of Hollywood and Broadway classics that next season will grow to include a Broadway staging of West Side Story that has already made headlines for what it will not include: the seminal Jerome Robbins choreography.

And this weekend sees the final London performance of All About Eve, van Hove’s multi-media take on Hollywood’s greatest Broadway story, with Gillian Anderson in the role made famous by Bette Davis. The play at the Noel Coward Theatre
