An Education

One Day Movie

Lone Scherfig proved to be a directorial talent with An Education, and, according to Variety, she’ll be tested even harder this time around as her film One Day goes up against Kevin James falling down with the help of talking animals (The Zookeeper), and Katherine Heigl falling in love without the help of talking animals (One For the Money) when it sees its release on July 8th. The movie, starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, tells the story of two friends who spend the night of their college graduation together. The focus returns to that day year after year – sometimes seeing the friends together, sometimes seeing them apart. Of course, the true competition comes from being sandwiched in between Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, but it’s inspired counter-programming for an audience that might not want to see giant robots, zoo creatures voiced by actors or teenage wizards.

This Week in Blu-ray

A week after this column exploded with over 2,000 words on some 15+ releases, we get some downtime. It’s difficult to say whether it’s the slim pickings on the release schedule or the fact that there were several titles that weren’t received for review. Either way, this should be brief.

Oscar Predictions: Best Picture

This year has been a strange one for acting performances. In a big way, the only category to fully reflect the new diversity that the Academy seems to be going for is the Best Actress category in which we see a Southern mom, a famous author’s wife, a young girl finding her purpose, a young girl finding her purpose through intense hardship, and a former spy who wants to take cooking lessons.

It’s Academy Awards time again, and even though we all know the awards are basically an irrelevant exercise in mutual masturbation it’s still fun to watch. This year sees a wide variety of films gain entry into Oscar history via nominations for Best Screenplay, Original and Adapted. Some deserve the honor, while others are based on the novel “Push” by Sapphire.

Perhaps this year’s most buzzed about Sundance movie, director Lone Scherfig’s period drama accomplished more than few things during its Sundance ’09 run. First and foremost, it was one of the most well-executed period films of the festival, bringing to life 1960s Britain in a very authentic way. It also introduced us to a brilliant new talent named Carey Mulligan.

Sundance

We don’t know what’s going to be playing at Sundance. No one does. No one except the half-dozen dolphin-werewolf hybrid creatures that choose the line up every year and keep it secret until some time next week. Luckily, several of the were-dolphins are susceptible to bribery, and we’ve got buzz on our side.
