Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017)

Though they don't look much alike, Annette Bening plays a fifty-something Gloria Grahame by speaking in a higher register, the breathier, sexier voice that made her a star in The Grifters. (That's a role that Grahame could easily have played at some point.) Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is based on the true final chapter of Grahame's story; she was amazing in films like It's a Wonderful Life, In a Lonely Place, The Bad and the Beautiful, and The Big Heat, sensual and dangerous and wise, but then the good roles simply dried up. In the late 1970s, she went to Liverpool to perform on stage and met and fell in love with the much younger Peter Turner; Turner wrote a book about their time together, which is the basis for this film. Jamie Bell plays Peter, and, miraculously, the two create a tender chemistry onscreen. The movie isn't too concerned with age differences or hitting biographical highlights. Rather, it tries to get at the heart of how these two connected. It's lovely, and unexpectedly romantic. It's also touching how Peter's family, especially his mum (Julie Walters), befriend and care about Gloria as a person. It was directed by Paul McGuigan, who mostly specializes in crime films and TV shows; this is his gentlest work. read more...

Becoming Jane (2007)

Apparently having run out of Jane Austen novels to film, the writers Kevin Hood and Sarah Williams and director Julian Jarrold have instead opted for this biographical fiction, based on the idea that Ms. Austen (Anne Hathaway) must have experienced some kind of passionate, tragic romance early in her life upon which to build her work. It's a wonderful idea, and it works beautifully. read more...

Elegy (2008)

The Spanish-born Isabel Coixet has done something that must have seemed impossible. First, she made a very good disease-of-the-week cancer movie with My Life Without Me (2003). Then she made a second very good disease-of-the-week cancer movie with her new Elegy. And third, she successfully adapted it from a Philip Roth novel. Roth is widely considered one of America's greatest living novelists -- if not the greatest -- and his novels are exceedingly difficult to adapt to the screen. I haven't read Roth's 2001 novel The Dying Animal, but Coixet and her screenwriter Nicholas Meyer (who also adapted 2003's The Human Stain) seem to have stuck to the essence, rather than the letter, of the novel. It flows like a movie. read more...

Great Expectations (1998)

Alfonso Cuaron updates Dickens to the 1990s with lots of gorgeous color and vivid eroticism. Ethan Hawke stars as "Finn" (not "Pip"), who is an artist this time out. Miss Havisham is now Ms. Dinsmoor (Anne Bancroft), who invites young Finn over to amuse her and dance with the beautiful young Estella. Robert De Niro is the escaped convict who surprises the youngster in the opening scenes (he leaps out of a Florida stream, rather than appearing in a graveyard). Finn's guardian Joe (Chris Cooper) is now a fisherman, rather than a blacksmith. And on and on. read more...
