Kelly Reichardt is a good example of an indie filmmaker who seems to be edging towards wider recognition (at least where film critics are concerned.) Her films such as Wendy & Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff, and Old Joy often receive critical acclaim and are frequently part of the film festival circuit. Reichardt grew up in Miami, Florida, about as different a landscape as you can get from the lush flora and fauna of Oregon, where many of her films are set. She developed an interest in photography...
Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch is back on the silver screen, in a new movie released in the US this Friday, February 17th. Best known for her role as Luna Lovegood, Evanna plays the title role in My Name Is Emily, a beautiful story of love, loss, and redemption, directed by Simon Fitzmaurice. In an interview with BUST, the Irish actress talks about drawing confidence from the role of Emily, moving away from Luna, and the ‘bad bitches’ she hopes to play in 2017. My Name Is...
  A United Kingdom
Directed by Amma Asante
Out February 174 out of 5 boobs A United Kingdom is, at its heart, a gorgeous love story about a two people from radically different worlds. But like director Amma Asante’s previous film, Belle, it’s packed with political subtext that’s all too relevant to today’s world. Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) is a law student in London when he meets Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) at a dance; they’re instantly smitten, but there’s much more working against them than just the everyday racism...
On Wednesday morning, writer and director Richard Curtis cast a bizarre, Christmas-tree shaped beacon of light into our dark, crumbling world: Love Actually is coming back for a sequel. According to Curtis, the film's follow-up comes not as a feature-length movie, but as a short film for this year's Red Nose Day telethon, which raises money for the charity Comic Relief. Beginning in 1988, Red Nose Day achieves mainstream success annually in the U.K.; more recently, NBC has broadcast the telethon to U.S. viewers. The Love...
Kelly Fremon Craig has accomplished something that few first-time directors do. Her film, The Edge Of Seventeen, has been nominated for 11 major awards so far, including the Critics Choice Award for Best Comedy, the Golden Globe for Best Actress — Motion Picture Comedy Or Musical, and the New York Film Critics Circle for Best First Film, which Craig won. But the accolades were a long time coming for Craig, who started her career as a screenwriter — she wrote the screenplay for the Alexis Bledel...

    Cat lovers, rejoice! KEDi, a new documentary by filmmaker Ceyda Torun explores the lives of the myriad of cats who live on the streets of Istanbul. “In this sumptuously-shot documentary tribute to the street cats of Istanbul, the people of the city warmly reflect on these collective pets who are neither stray nor domestic, and the role that they play in the life of the dynamic megalopolis,” the program for the film reads. “A movie of enormous, playful charm, with keen insights into this rapidly changing...
When Courtney Hunt won the 2008 Sundance Grand Jury prize for her debut feature film, Frozen River, she had no idea it was coming. “I didn’t pay close attention to reviews. My job is, ‘Is it reaching the audience or are they not getting it? If they’re not getting it, what did I do that didn’t get across?’ It’s all about my connection with the audience,” Hunt said. After completing law school, Hunt enrolled in Columbia film school and graduated in 1994. She then spent 10...

I would consider myself a very withdrawn person. I have a lifetime of suppressing emotion in order to get through situations. I will tell you how I feel, but only after the largest wave of emotion has already passed. In other words, I am more likely to tell you how I felt than how I feel.When I was in the theater, watching Hidden Figures, I felt so vulnerable. Even though the room was dark, I still had this urge to hide my emotions. I was...
"Grey Gardens is oozing with romance, ghosts, and other things." According to Forbes Magazine, 3 West End Road — perhaps the most storied home in East Hampton — just hit the market for $19.995m. Adjacent to Georgia Beach, the mansion property famously belonged to "Big" and "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale, the aunt and first cousin, respectively, of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, by Albert and David Maysles, produced an image of 3 West End Road as at once dilapidated and opulent, and of the Bouvier...
When Scarlett Johansson was announced as the lead for the live-action version of the popular Japanese manga The Ghost In The Shell last year, we were not happy — and we weren’t alone. Margaret Cho started #whitewashedOUT hashtag to discuss the problems with casting white actors to play Asian characters (a discussion that continued with Tilda Swinton’s casting Doctor Strange); Asian actresses including Constance Wu and Ming-Na Wen spoke out in interviews and on panels; and fans of the original manga and anti-racism advocates criticized...
