Starring Ethan Hawke and Eve Hewson, visionary inventor Nikola Tesla is the subject of Tesla, director Michael Almereyda’s new drama/biography. Particularly Tesla’s interactions with Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan’s daughter Anne, and Tesla’s breakthroughs in transmitting electrical power and light.
Additional key cast includes Kyle MacLachlan, Hanna Gross and Josh Hamilton.
Ethan Hawke, this cool trailer edit and the greatness of Tesla himself are the reason I’m interested. It also helps that Almereyda’s film looks like no biography I’ve ever seen.
Lois Smith, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Jim Gaffigan, Lucy Walters, James Urbaniak, Ian Lithgow, Donnie Keshawarz and Janelle Feigley also star.
Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio and Dane DeHaan are the stars of The Kid.
Directed by D’Onofrio, The Kid is a biography / western about a young boy forced to go on the run whilst trying to save his sister from his villainous uncle. On his journey he finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of Sheriff Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid…
I’m not overly familiar with the Sheriff Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid story but I am aware of that Billy is an outlaw and I’m interested mainly because of Hawke and Pratt. My fingers crossed for a pleasant surprise.
Leila George, Adam Baldwin, Jenny Gabrielle and Tait Fletcher also star.
First Reformed is a drama / thriller about a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor (Ethan Hawke) at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks the Reverend to counsel her husband, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future.
Directed by Paul Schrader, Hawke and Seyfried are joined by Cedric the Entertainer, Michael Gaston, Van Hansis, Ronald Peet…
I’m in for the unique story and a great performance by Hawke. You can just see it in his eyes, can’t you?
Maudie tells the true story of a fragile arthritic Nova Scotia housekeeper who becomes an artist and beloved community figure. Directed by Aisling Walsh and starring Ethan Hawke Sally Hawkins and Kari Matchett, Maudie is a story of one woman’s independence and an unlikely love story…
I’d like to see Maudie because of Ethan Hawke. I also want to see Hawkins do well, especially since she’s in my favourite Woody Allen movie, Blue Jasmine (2013).
Ethan Hawke, Cara Delevigne, John Goodman, Rihanna and Dane DeHaan are the stars of director Luc Besson’s latest sci-fi adventure, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Valerian is a time travelling agent played by Dane Dehaan…
