    Emma Thompson's 'Effie' With Orlando Bloom & Saoirse Ronan Stuck In Legal Row

    Last fall, a rather interesting project was coming together based around a script from actress/screenwriter Emma Thompson. Titled "Effie," the film lined up a solid cast with Saorise Ronan, Orlando Bloom, Imelda Staunton, Greg Wise and Thompson herself in the strange-but-true story that centers on the wedding night between Victorian artist, architect, poet and political thinker John Ruskin and his wife, Effie Gray. Ruskin was long infatuated with Gray and married her when she was 17. However, when it came time to consummate their marriage, something so reviled Ruskin that Gray remained a virgin until after they divorced and she remarried his ...

    On DVD: "It's Kind of a Funny Story" is Just "The Devil Wears Hospital Scrubs"

    Maybe it's because I also watched "Titicut Follies" for the first time this week, but I could not buy into the happy-go-lucky patient pageantry of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's "It's Kind of a Funny Story." The adaptation of Ned Vizzini's semi-autobiographical novel, which disappointed at the box office and now arrives on video, where it will likely find a more passively appreciable audience, is kind of insulting to the reality of mental illness and general psychological suffering.

    Colin Firth Loses: Those Wacky London Evening Standard Awards

    No one pays attention to the London Evening Standard Film Awards – well, barely anyone. The awards from the British newspaper were not a blip on the Oscar radar. Then, yesterday, Andrew Garfield was named best actor for his roles in Never Let Me Go and The Social Network, beating the formerly unbea...
