Stars: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Sam Waterston, Cailee Spaetny, Kathy Bates, Stephen Root, Chris Mulkey Writer: Daniel Stiepleman Director: Mimi Leder Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: December 25, 2018 ON THE BASIS OF SEX tackles two historical subjects: a precedent-setting legal case and the early career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Similar in some respects to last year’s MARSHALL, which concerned an early case of the late Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall, ON THE BASIS OF SEX doesn’t try to tackle Ginsburg’s whole life, or even how she got onto the Supreme Court. Instead it revolves around a single […]Read On »

Although THE INVISIBLE WOMAN is the title of the new feature film directed by Ralph Fiennes and scripted by Abi Morgan from Claire Tomalin’s book, that’s now how we see its female protagonist Nelly Ternan, played by Felicity Jones. “I am the visible woman,” declares Jones with a laugh. The film has Jones playing Ternan from the age of eighteen, when she meets Charles Dickens, played by director Fiennes, through her thirties. The bulk of the movie is about how the eventually intimate relationship unfolds between young Nelly and the much older, famous and married author in 1800sEngland. Jones, originally […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander, Michelle Fairley, Joanna Scanlan, Tom Burke, Perdita Weeks, Amanda Hale Writer: Abi Morgan, based on the book by Claire Tomalin Director: Ralph Fiennes Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: December 25, 2013 Victorian-era writer Charles Dickens was such a champion of fairness and kindness in his work that it’s easy to suppose he routinely exhibited these traits in his real life. The truth, according to many biographers, was much more complicated. In THE INVISIBLE WOMAN, based on Claire Tomalin’s nonfiction book of the same name about Dickens and […]Read On »

Movie Review: HYSTERIA

HYSTERIA movis poster | ©2012 Sony Pictures Classics

Rating: R Stars: Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jonathan Pryce, Felicity Jones, Rupert Everett Writers: Stephen Dyer & Jonah Lisa Dyer, story by Howard Gensler Director: Tanya Wexler Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: May 18, 2012 Surprisingly enough, the vibrator was invented during the Victorian era. Though HYSTERIA’s account of how this came to pass can be taken with a grain – or perhaps an entire shaker – of salt, the film’s overall look at the juxtaposition of extreme sexual prudishness (to say nothing of sexism and classism) and the upper-class medical theories of the day are hilarious and appalling […]Read On »
