    Jessica Chastain & Vanessa Redgrave To Star In 'The Secret Scripture'

    While we haven't seen much of Jessica Chastain on the big screen in 2013, she's been no less busy. She's already got the two picture "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby His & Hers" in the bag, Liv Ullman's "Miss Julie" has wrapped and she's currently in the midst of Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar...

    Oprah and Forest Whitaker in 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'

    Lee Daniels' The Butler is some serious, probably effective Oscar bait. It is also -- these things so often go together -- audience-pandering History Lite. Forest Whitaker, as a butler who serves at the White House through eight Presidents, from Eisenhower to Reagan, gives a dazzling performance; he...

    Review: 'Unfinished Song' Starring Gemma Arterton, Terence Stamp & Vanessa Redgrave

    There is a certain strain of mid-budgeted British comedy -- films like "Calendar Girls," "Made In Dagenham," "Greenfingers," "The Full Monty" etc. -- that generally tends to find an audience on both sides of the ocean, makes a modest profit, and then lands on specialty cable where it lives on in rer...

    When Hollywood Met Broadway: Screen Stars Hit the Stage as Stage-to-Screen Musicals (and Vice-Versa) Move Through the Pipeline

    Let's face it, movie musicals are usually bad.

    Picked up very early on by The Weinstein Company and selected as the closing entry for the Toronto International Film Festival, hopes seemed to be high for "Song For Marion." A Brit dramedy about old people and singing with cantankerous Terence Stamp in the lead? It could have been a conte...

    TIFF Review: 'Song For Marion' Hits A Predictable, But Sour Note
