    Vera Farmiga & Andy Garcia To Get Romantic In Adam Rodgers' 'Admissions'

    After a starring role in an adaptation of "A View From The Bridge" fell apart last year, Vera Farmiga's latest run of films have been dominated by supporting turns ("Source Code," "Goats" and "Safe House"), although she did get her directorial debut "...

    Vera Farmiga To Play Fleetwood Mac Singer/Songwriter Christine McVie In Dennis Wilson Biopic 'The Drummer'

    Even though she nabbed the biggest exposure and acclaim of her career to date thanks to her Oscar nominated turn in "Up In The Air," Vera Farmiga has continued to march to the beat of her own drum. She's eschewed big glossy tentpoles, using her post-Oscar heat to make her directorial d...

    And So It Begins, 'The Descendants' & 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Lead Gotham Award Nominees

    Well folks, the first batch of nominees this awards season have been revealed, with the Gotham Independent Film Award nominations landing this morning, giving an early peek at what will likely be some strong contenders down the line. Bear in mind, the Gotham Awards have little bearing on the eventual Oscar nods with only last year's Best Feature winner "Winter's Bone" factoring into the proceedings at the Kodak Theater. However, it does represent a good chunk of what you might see at the Independent Spirit Awards later in the year and if anything, these nominations confirm that Fox Searchlight is going to have another banner year on the statu...

    Shirley Maclaine, Alan Arkin & Vera Farmiga Are 'The Locals' In Italian/Jewish Romeo & Juliet Riff

    For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo. It's not surprising that William Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed lovers has provided the inspiration for dozens of films over the years, but there seems to be something in the water at the moment in particular: Disney had a surprise hit at the start of the year with their (very loose) animated take, "Gnomeo & Juliet," while Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth are gearing up for a more faithful version, while Keira Knightley and Lily Collins are supposedly competing for the lead in "Rosaline," which will focus on the titular girl, who Romeo is in love with before he gets a...

    Higher Ground—movie review

    How stimulating, and utterly refreshing, it is to see a movie with a distinctly female voice that deals with faith, and how one woman grapples with it, through good times and bad, throughout the course of her life. That Vera Farmiga gives an honest, empathetic performance should come as no surprise;...

    Review: 'Higher Ground' Revels In Its Callow, Low Blows To Catholicism

    Everyone's got something to say about religion. Each book that serves as the foundation for a theology forges our behavior in some shape or form, and while structuring your life on what each book preaches can lead to catharsis, kindness, and healing, it can also be the birth of intolerance and destruction. That's not to say people aren't ultimately to blame; though certain things are good or bad no matter how you spin them, we do tend to interpret things how we see fit. This odd mixed bag of morals often leads to serious backlash, manifested in outright intense debates or scathing art pieces. "Up In The Air" actress Vera Farmiga sets her targ...
