Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career.
Roman J. Israel Esq. will be in theaters on November 3rd.
The Beguiled is Sophia Coppola’s take on the novel by Thomas Cullinan – a tale of how a wounded Union soldier is taken in by the women of a Southern girls’ school and taboos are broken while dangerous rivalries develop.
The Beguiled stars Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell. It will be in theaters on June 30th.
Niels Arden Oplev received near unanimous raves for his original take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so it makes sense that his first film in English would be a complicated tale of vengeance. Dead Man Down, written by Fringe’s J.H. Wyman focuses on Viktor, right-hand man of crime boss Alphonse and Beatrice, the scarred victim of a drunk driver who lives with her nearly deaf mother. Viktor and Beatrice’s is the central relationship and a most unorthodox courtship.
It may not be as joyously weird as the Paul Verhoeven take on Philip K. Dick’s immortal short story (We Can Remember It For You Wholesale), but it makes up for that with a protagonist who seems genuinely vulnerable (C’mon! You never really thought Arnold was in real peril, did you?) and more pure intensity.
If you’re a screenwriter with a title for your next movie – Seven Psychopaths – and nothing else, what do you do? Let your best friend place a personal ad asking any psychopaths to come by and share their stories?
If you’re Marty, Martin McDonagh’s frustrated screenwriter, that’s got to be an option.
