    Love. There are points during “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” which celebrates its World Premiere as the opening film of 64th Berlinale tonight, at which it simply floods off the screen. It sounds too lofty perhaps, but how else can you describe the level of minute care that seems to have gone into ever...

    Watch: New Trailer & Poster For Wes Anderson's Berlin-Bound 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

    There was a lot to talk about after the first trailer for Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" dropped earlier this fall. In fact, we did a fairly obsessive and thorough trailer breakdown, that noted, among other things, that the film is shot in three different aspect ratios and is (mostly) set in ...

    In the Future We Will Have Less of Everything: On HOW I LIVE NOW and Its Predecessors

    Has there ever been a film about the future that advocated in favor of progress, rather than against it? "How I Live Now," in its own quiet way, works beautifully and admirably against this trend, pervasive as its gloom might be, in suggesting that the sanctity of human relationships can create a ba...

    Saoirse Ronan Talks 'How I Live Now', Working With James Gandolfini & More

    Not even 20 years old, Saoirse Ronan has already made a significant cinematic impression. Most of us got our first glimpse of Ronan in Joe Wright’s operatic, Oscar-nominated literary adaptation “Atonement,” and in the years since she has anchored films for directors like Peter Jackson, Peter Weir, A...

    Saoirse Ronan Says She Didn't Get The 'Star Wars' Role She Auditioned For, Calls 'Fantastic Four' Rumors Just That

    We recently got to chat with the lovely and talented Saoirse Ronan about her upcoming young adult adaptation "How I Live Now" (review here), which is kind of like what would have happened if Terrence Malick had directed "Red Dawn" (more from that interview soon). And while we had the young actress o...

    Review: Kevin Macdonald's Intense, Thrilling 'How I Live Now' Starring Saoirse Ronan

    Note the title, “How I Live Now,” and its absence of colons, commas, or other punctuation implying further installments—it’s the first sign of the crucial immediacy to Meg Rosoff’s 2004 YA novel, now brought to the screen by “Last King of Scotland” director Kevin Macdonald. The second is impossible ...

    Rooney Mara Out, Saoirse Ronan In For 'Brooklyn'; John Crowley To Direct

    The last thing we heard about the big screen adaptation of Colm Toibin's "Brooklyn" was well over a year ago. At that time Rooney Mara was going to play the lead in the Nick Hornby-penned flick, with a shoot planned for spring 2013. Clearly, that didn't happen. But the project is still alive with a ...

The auteur has said several times in recent years that he has no plans to change up his famously idiosyncratic style. "My natural handwriting is neat...
