Elizabeth Olsen Joins Ed Harris For Road Trip Drama Kodachrome

During her downtime from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Elizabeth Olsen tends to fill her slate with a host of intriguing projects. Coming off the barnstorming Age of Ultron, it was musical drama I Saw the Light that offered the actress some respite from superhero fare last year and, in continuing that trend, Olsen has lined up the likes of Ingrid Goes West, Wind River and now Kodachrome, a road trip drama hailing from director Mark Raso (Copenhagen).

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that the actress has joined Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the feature, one the centers on “a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them.”

Review: What We Become, The Noir-ish Horror Of A Family Being Torn Apart

An extremely well-made horror film from Denmark, What We Become (original title: Sorgenfri) examines the churning emotional dynamics of a nuclear family when they are placed under extreme -- some might even call it apocalyptic -- stress. Mother Pernille (Mille Dinesen) and father Dino (Troels Lyby) live with their two children in Sorgenfri, a leafy suburban neighborhood just north of Copenhagen. While their youngest, a young girl, is sweet and obedient, Gustav (Benjamin Engell), their older child, is in the 'teenage rebellion' period of his life; nothing violent, just disagreeable. But even he is cheered up when he sees a pretty girl about his age move in with her family nearby. Besides these minor issues, what could go wrong? It's summer and the living is...

The Bridge: an unforgettable Scandinavian drama

As UK remake The Tunnel returns, we celebrate Swedish/Danish crime drama The Bridge...

9pm, Saturday night, BBC Four. For the few of us who still, on occasion, watch television when it’s actually broadcast, that timeslot means only one thing: high-quality drama from outside the anglophone world. Okay, so some of the series are less impressive than others, and one or two are in English (remember Australia’s The Code?) but these are exceptions to the rule. What began as a fad, accompanied by much reductive talk of ‘Scandi noir’ and a mildly disturbing national obsession with Sarah Lund’s knitwear, has culminated in a golden age for telly addicts. Our initial resistance to subtitles has faded, and a whole world of often beautifully acted, compellingly plotted drama has opened up. We haven’t strayed very far outside Europe yet, but it’s a start.

He is one of the most obnoxious male leads in films in a long while, a naturally abrasive, selfish and narcissistic spoiled child, who at 30, can’t reign himself in. When he meets Effy (Frederikke Dahl Hansen) someone he actually cares […]

In his feature directorial debut, Canadian writer-director Mark Raso takes viewers on a personal journey for Will (Gethin Anthony), a young man who must face himself while seeking clues about his father.

Dallas Iff 2014 Preview: Traveling Across the Globe

The 2014 Dallas International Film Festival (Diff) is changing it up a bit this year with the film venues and number of screenings. Although there are fewer screenings per day, it will be easier to make it to consecutive movies centralized at the Angelika rather than catching a shuttle to the Magnolia, which is not a Diff venue this year.

The film festival opens on Thursday, April 3 at the Dallas City Performance Hall, with Words and Pictures starring Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen. This narrative feature portrays the challenges faced by educators in their attempts to inspire students in art and education in a day and age full of obsessions with social media, grades and status among peers.

I am looking forward to several of the international titles that are premiering in Dallas, including my personal 2014 Slamdance Film Festival favorite and Audience Award winner Copenhagen (screening times), written and directed by Mark Raso.
