    Interview: Emma Stone Talks Comedy, 'The Croods' And Cameron Crowe; Scores Off The Charts On Likability

    FUTURES: 'Gloria' Star Paulina García Talks About Midlife Crises and the Sexuality That's Missing From Movies

    There was no bigger discovery at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival than Paulina García, star of Chilean director Sebastián Lelio's competition entry "Gloria."

    Berlin Interview: Richard Linklater Talks Making ‘Before Midnight’ & The 14-Minute-Long Shot

    With “Before Midnight” being readily clasped to the bosoms of audiences and critics alike at the Berlin International Film Festival, and having missed the talent when on their promotional rounds at Sundance last month (where the film was similarly well-received, our review is here), we jumped at the...
