Saoirse Ronan Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought the first of the final three episodes finishing out 2017 for Saturday Night Live, and we got to see the wonderful Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird, Brooklyn) make her hosting debut. The New York native brought her signature Irish brogue to Studio 8H, and she couldn’t have been more comfortable among the seasoned comedians of SNL.

But how was the episode? Thankfully, this was a solid episode of Saturday Night Live with the right mix of satire, oddity and even a couple of sketches that felt like they went against the grain of the more popular SNL sketch formulas. We run through the best and worst sketches of the Saoirise Ronan hosted Saturday Night Live below Read More »

Greta Gerwig Lady Bird Letters

Greta Gerwig is on fire right now (not literally, thank heavens). The writer-actress-director’s new film Lady Bird has garnered some of the best reviews of the year, and might be a serious contender come awards season. Gerwig’s coming-of-age drama is set in the early ’00s, and as such, she wanted to fill the film with those sweet jams that you heard incessantly on the radio back in the day. To land the music license rights to certain songs, Gerwig emailed several artists, and the letters are just delightful. Read the Greta Gerwig Lady Bird letters below.

Love hurts. Whether it’s platonic, romantic, or familial, the relationships that we build are rarely as clean or as kind as we usually see on screen. Part of what makes Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird so remarkable is her refusal to shy away from that ugliness and how, as a result, the film becomes all the more beautiful.

Lady Bird follows Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates her last year of high school. Her dissatisfaction with her life in the suburbs (she wants to go to college on the East Coast) is compounded by financial anxieties — her family may not be able to afford tuition to the colleges she really wants to attend, and she pretends they’re in a different income bracket in order to impress her new friends — as well as her romantic hopes and disappointments, and her fractious relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf).

On Chesil Beach Review

A novel is a novel, and a movie is a movie. A novel can be turned into a movie, but to do so successfully, it must surrender certain properties of the page to better suit the screen. This seems obvious, but it bears repeating because this common sense seemed to escape Ian McEwan when adapting his own novella On Chesil Beach for the cinema. By keeping a literary structure intact, the film is dead on arrival. Read More »

Greta Gerwig is passing down her mumblecore crown to Saoirse Ronan in her semi-autobiographical film, Lady Bird.

The indie darlings team up in the coming-of-age film replete with quirky shenanigans and whimsical musings on life, with Ronan starring in the Gerwig-surrogate role as a stubborn aspiring bohemian who clashes with her equally strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf).

Brooklyn Deleted Scenes

Even though Brooklyn was nominated for big categories like Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 88th Academy Awards, the film ended up going home empty-handed.
