At Eternity’s Gate is a Julian Schnabel directed biography that takes us inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art.
If you hadn’t already guessed based on the above picture, the artist in question is of course, Vincent van Gogh who’s played by Willem Dafoe. Also starring Mads Mikkelsen, Oscar Isaac and Rupert Friend, At Eternity’s Gate features scenes based on Van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, as well as purely invented moments.
Other key cast includes Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner, Niels Arestrup…
This trailer reminds me so much of how painful the lives of many great artists often are. ‘Maybe God made me a painter for people who aren’t born yet.’ Such heartbreaking words because of all that it could possibly mean.
Definitely looking forward to this one and I’m quite sure that Dafoe and Mikkelsen will do a wonderful job in their roles.
I’m guessing that my non-Americanness is the reason I hadn’t properly heard of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until the RBG trailer was released. The shame!
Now that I’ve seen directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s documentary, it’s clear that Bader Ginsburg really is as impressive as the preview suggested. What West and Cohen deliver is a well structured film that tells the story of who she is and the truly vital role she’s played as a defender of women.
Learning about Bader Ginsburg’s earlier life – all the way through to her current position as Justice of the US Supreme Court, RBG shares details of the many Iconic cases Bader Ginsburg fought in court; all in the name of her mission to make life better for women. We hear from the lady herself as well as her friends colleagues and family.
As I continued to watch, this great story became even more impressive to me as I learned about Bader Ginsburg’s character and all that it took to get to where she is. If you didn’t already know, On The Basis Of Sex (2018), a brand new feature length biography of Bader Ginsburg, with Felicity Jones in the leading role is due for for release in a few months. Post RBG viewing, I’m now even more excited to experience it.
I can’t help but pause in appreciation when I think about Bader Ginsburg’s work, especially in the 1970s and how it really did change everything. Watch it because of all the reasons mentioned.
Starring Hugh Jackman, J.K. Simmons, Sara Paxton and Vera Farmiga, The Front runner is a new Jason Reitman directed biography / drama about American Senator Gary Hart and his 1988 presidential campaign. A campaign that was soon embroiled in scandal…
I knew absolutely nothing about Gary Hart before this trailer. I’m a very little bit intrigued by him but, it’s really the chance to see Jackman do a great job that will have me tuning in.
Kaitlyn Dever, Molly Ephraim, Courtney Ford and Ari Graynor also star.
A Private War is the true story of Marie Colvin, the fearless rebellious spirit who was driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe, to give voice to the voiceless.
Directed by Matthew Heineman; Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci and Tom Hollander star…
I’ve always been intrigued by people drawn to such dangerous jobs. Especially since it’s so far removed from what I’d rather be doing. I’m guessing a mixture of purpose and adrenaline are contributing factors to the choice.
Alexandra Moen, Corey Johnson, Raad Rawi, Jérémie Laheurte and Jesuthasan Antonythasan also star.
Outlaw King is a new David Mackenzie directed historical drama about Robert the Bruce, the great 14th Century Scottish figure whose bravery and cunning defeated and repelled the much larger and better equipped occupying English army.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chris Pine, Florence Pugh and Billy Howle are among the key cast…
I’m interested because of Pine and Taylor-Johnson. I’m intrigued by Robert the Bruce’s story as well as being partial to a Scottish accent.
Tony Curran, Alastair Mackenzie, Duncan Lacroix and Stephen Dillane also star.
