    San Francisco International Film Festival 55: 'Abramovic,' 'Neighboring Sounds,' and Kenneth Branagh

    Kind of a light Festival day: viewed a DVD that I loved, saw a new movie onscreen that was a first feature and reminded me why we go to film festivals, went to a cocktail party that didn’t feel like one, and attended Kenneth Branagh’s tribute for the Founder’s Directing Award.

    'My Week With Marilyn' Star Kenneth Branagh On How to Play a Legend

    On paper, casting Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier is akin to casting Kate Hudson as Goldie Hawn: It seems too obvious. As it turns out, the coup was no stunt. In "My Week With Marilyn," Branagh turned in one of his most acclaimed performances to date as his icon. It's more than an uncanny imp...

    From directing "Thor," to starring, adapting and helming various Shakespeare works to playing troubled cop Kurt Wallander, Kenneth Branagh has pretty much done it all, but surely even he must have been slightly intimidated stepping into the shoes of the legendary Laurence Olivier in the upcoming "My...
