In new historical drama Ashes In The Snow, Bel Powley is Lina, a 16 year-old aspiring artist when in 1941, herself and her family are deported to Siberia amidst Stalin’s brutal dismantling of the Baltic region.
Also starring Peter Franzén, Sophie Cookson and directed by Marius A. Markevicius, Lina’s love of art and her un-relenting hope will prove more important than she imagined…
Whilst hoping that Powley’s accent doesn’t prove too distracting, I think this could be a good one. Especially since it’s based The New York Times bestselling novel, Between Shades Of Gray by author Ruta Sepetys.
Additional key cast includes James Cosmo, Martin Wallström, Timothy Innes, Jonah Hauer-King and Sam Hazeldine.
White Boy Rick is based on the true story of Richard Wershe Jr., a teenager who became an undercover informant for the FBI in the 80s and was arrested for drug-trafficking and sentenced to life in prison.
Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brian Tyree Henry, Richie Merritt and Bel Powley star, while Yann Demange directs…
I feel as though there’s so much of this story that I’ve seen before – but hopefully there’s enough difference to keep it interesting. I’d probably be less enthused if it wasn’t for McConaughey. He looks to be in great form based on this trailer.
Additional cast includes Eddie Marsan, Richie Merritt, Bruce Dern and RJ Cyler.
In Wildling, a blossoming teenager uncovers the dark secret behind her traumatic childhood.
Liv Tyler, Bel Powley and Brad Dourif style while Fritz Böhm directs…
Congratulations to the casting director for finding a great match to play a younger version of Powley’s character. Those eyes!
I’m curious to see how good this turns out to be. I’d also like to know if Powley’s character killed her father… With that said, it’s now officially time to stop myself from thinking about the story too much. Otherwise I may just figure the whole thing out.
‘So this is what uptight and highly strung looks like – up close.’
‘Why am I not warming to her?’ Ah yes, it’s because she’s annoying.’
‘I feel bad because I understand now why she irritates me. It’s not quite her fault, poor lass.’
‘This romantic element, I don’t care for it. It feels forced’
Just a selection of some of the thoughts that went through my head as I watched Carrie Pilby, a comedy / drama about a person of high intelligence who struggles to make sense of the world as it relates to morality, relationships, sex and leaving her apartment.
It’s definitely telling that some days after watching Carrie Pilby, I remember how annoying the main character was but recall not a single moment that was particularly amusing. I suppose it doesn’t help that when I think of a comedy where a person of high intelligence is struggling to make sense of the world, the first character that pops into my head is the well imagined and very funny Sheldon Cooper of CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Tough act to follow indeed.
Carrie Pilby is a comedy / drama about a person of high intelligence who’s struggling to make sense of the world as it relates to morality, relationships, sex and leaving her apartment. Directed by Susan Johnson, based on the novel by Caren Lissner and starring Bel Powley (Pilby), Vanessa Bayer, Gabriel Byrne to name just a few, I’m expecting good things…
Of course I couldn’t watch this trailer without Sheldon Cooper of CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory coming to mind. Whereas the sitcom primarily focuses on the lives of boy geniuses, I’m looking forward to the story and life of a girl genius. Also, I want to assume that Carrie Pilby’s accent is supposed to be a mixture of English and American, instead of one or the other. Otherwise…
Should one kill ones ungrateful stepfather or should one not? That is the question that must be answered by a young law student as he grieves for his dying mother. Starring Tye Sheridan, Stephen Moyer and Emory Cohen, new thriller Detour is directed by Christopher Smith…
The interesting concept about being ‘split in two’ is my reason to tune in. The other is the execution of this trailer. I sure hope the end result is good.
Equals is the new sci-fi/ drama movie from Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart…
Directed by Drake Doremas, I know that love makes fools of us all but what kind of madness must have taken place for love to become outlawed? This is why I have to watch, also because of Ridley Scott’s involvement.
