Cracks review written by Joseph Burgo. If you enjoy smart, well-acted and beautifully filmed British movies where psychological nuance drives the story rather than plot, then be sure to see Cracks (2009), starring Eva Green. This exquisite film was directed by Jordan Scott, and produced by her father Ridley Scott and uncle Tony Scott. Based on a novel by Sheila Kohler, Cracks revolves around a charismatic teacher Miss G (Eva
After directing the likes of Hallam Foe and Young Adam, director David Mackenzie returns with an ambitious film about a global apocalypse, seen mostly through the eyes of a budding couple, played by Ewan McGregor (here reteaming with Mackenzie) and Eva Green. On an ordinary day reports start to flood in from all over the world of people losing their sense of smell. The government can’t seem to locate the

When your father is someone as prolific as filmmaker Ridley Scott, your directorial debut is bound to come up just a little bit short. But in Jordan Scott’s case, a little bit short is still very, very good. The younger Scott forges her way into feature film territory with “Cracks,” a period drama/thriller about a tight-knit group of girls at an English boarding school. At St. Mathilda’s, the diving team
Essentially, Perfect Sense is a romantic love story set against an apocalyptic backdrop. It tells of how a chef, Michael (Ewan McGregor ), and a scientist, Susan (Eva Green ), fall in love as an epidemic begins to rob people of their sensory perceptions. Kim Fupz Aakeson’s cunningly written screenplay imagines a world in which the inhabitants slowly lose their senses, one by one. The apocalypse is refreshingly personal and,

Tim Burton fans in Los Angeles can rejoice now that his LACMA exhibit is open. The Wrap took the chance to chat with the director at the exhibition’s opening. Of his Dark Shadows adaptation (currently in production), Burton says, “we’re sort of getting right in there.” He confirms the project has a “weird tone,” and will be somewhat soap-opera-esque (like the 1960s TV show that precedes it), but adds: “I’m
Thanks to George for the link. In a slightly alternate world not too far in the future a young girl called Rebecca (Ruby O.Fee) is embraced by Thomas (Tristan Christopher) her neighbor, in an undisclosed coastal town where she is staying with her grandfather. They bond and become close, but Rebecca leaves, only to return 12 years later (Eva Green) to find Thomas (Matt Smith) and reignite their complicated childhood
Filming begins this week on Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ Dark Shadows, which brings the cult classic television series to the big screen under the direction of Tim Burton. The film’s all-star ensemble cast includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz, and newcomer Gulliver McGrath. In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young
What must the pressure be like for a first-time filmmaker with an uncle and a father that are both world-class filmmakers? For Jordan Scott, daughter of Ridley and niece to Tony, it must be pretty damn awesome, especially when your debut feature film is as surprisingly well crafted as CRACKS. Jordan Scott directed and co-wrote CRACKS with Ben Court and Caroline Ip, based on the novel by Sheila Kohler. What
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s eighth collaboration, Dark Shadows, will be released on May 11, 2012. It seems an ideal project for one of cinema’s most idiosyncratic partnerships. Depp will play another pallid protagonist in the form of Barnabas Collins, a vampire, opposite other Burton regular Helena Bonham Carter, as well as Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer, while Danny Elfman will return for scoring duties.
