lisey's story cast clive owen

The Apple TV+ miniseries adaptation of Stephen King‘s Lisey’s Story has added a new cast member. Clive Owen will appear alongside Julianne Moore, whom he appeared alongside in Children of Men. Owen’s role is likely to be a bit limited since his character is dead by the time the story starts (that’s not a spoiler, I promise). King’s novel follows a novelist’s widow who discovers secrets about her dead husband.

can you ever forgive me julianne moore

Melissa McCarthy gave one of the best performances of her career in Marielle Heller’s Can You Ever Forgive Me?, but in an alternate timeline, things were much different. At one point, Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said) was set to direct, and Julianne Moore was going to star. But six days before shooting was to begin, the project fell apart. Moore and Holofcener both left the project, each citing “creative differences.” Now, Moore has revealed she didn’t deliberately walk away – she was fired by Holofcener.

After the Wedding review

After the Wedding is a remake of Bird Box director Susanne Bier’s 2006 movie of the same name, and while I haven’t seen that version, this one is a muddled melodrama that never comes together in satisfying fashion.

Michelle Williams plays Isabel, an American ex-pat living in India and working at an orphanage. One day, she receives a surprise phone call to come to New York City, because high-powered businesswoman Theresa (Julianne Moore) wants to provide funding for her orphanage. Soon after Isabel arrives, Theresa invites her to her daughter Grace (Abby Quinn)’s wedding, which becomes the setting for a revelation about the relationship between the key players. Read More »

Gloria Bell Trailer

Hollywood has always had a problem with giving women leading roles once they start hitting their 40s and 50s. Obsessed with the fresh-faced, young women pouring into Los Angeles everyday, it’s one of the more shameful sides of show business. But thankfully that’s started to change a bit with great roles for women of all ages, and A24 has just released the first trailer that gives Julianne Moore one of those fantastic roles.

Gloria Bell (Julianne Moore) is a divorced woman just trying to meet the right man all over again, hitting up night clubs, dancing like no one is watching, and living her best life. That’s when she meets Arnold (John Turturro), and it looks like everything is coming up Gloria. At least at first. See what happens in the Gloria Bell trailer below. Read More »

The world is hard. Movies are largely rising to the challenge of portraying that reality, which is wonderful – but the soul can only withstand so many depressing films. Sometimes, we need something that’s just nice. Not necessarily the saccharine sweetness of a Nancy Meyers movie, which is a delight, just something that revels in small victories for a good person. Director Sebastián Lelio understands that sometimes the sight of Julianne Moore dancing and smiling is enough to set the heart a flutter. Gloria Bell, his American remake of his own Chilean film, provides us the opportunity to celebrate the little things.

Oh, to be a fly on the window of the Woman in the Window casting department. Because Joe Wright‘s upcoming drama is looking to have the most stacked cast on this side of Ocean’s 8.

Based on the A.J. Finn bestseller of the same name, Woman in the Window already stars Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman. And with Anthony Mackie now on board, Woman in the Window may break the trend of subpar Gone Girl-inspired thrillers.
