Paper Heart: The Review

It’s official, we are in love with Michael Cera! Last night we sat in the cleared out Beyond Retro, munched on free popcorn, sipped wine and left with an increased infatuation over the boy who so innocently manages to turn geeky naivety into something sweet and heartwarming.

The film was Paper Heart and although not out until November 13th, the lovely people at Beyond Retro put on a private screening where a handful of people joined for an evening of romantic awkwardness and sentimental sweetness as Charlyne Yi set about to ask the question ‘what is love?’. Her own disbelief sets her on a quest, travelling America, interviewing a mix of people for her documentary.
Whilst on her travels she meets Michael Cera who quickly becomes her own love interest. Taking the award for geekiest couple, we witness the pair’s growing love for each other as the camera crew follow their every move. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but this film comes highly recommended. Cute characters, sentimental story line, geeky retro fashion and the funniest film I’ve seen in a long time…what more could you want!

A Single Man by Tom Ford

Here’s the trailer for designer Tom Ford’s directorial debut, A Single Man. He not only directs but wrote the screenplay, he’s a talented chap. The film stars Colin Firth and the brilliant Julianne Moore and the trailer looks very sleek and stylised but we wouldn’t expect anything less from Tom. The film will be screened during the London Film Festival on 16th October.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s On Stage

This September you can see a stage adaptation of one of the most fantastic and stylish films ever, Truman Capote’s classic romantic yet slightly sinister tale starring Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
It’ll be hard to fill Audrey’s shoes but Anna Friel (famous for being in Brookside back in the day and being one half of primetime TV’s first lesbian kiss) is going to give it a go and from 9th September 2009 you can pop down to the Theatre Royal Haymarket and see for yourself.

Heath’s Final Film

Here’s the trailer for Heath Ledger’s last film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, directed by ex Monty Pythoner Terry Gilliam and I can’t wait to see it, as not only is beautiful Heath there but after his terrible early death a trio of eye pleasing actors stepped in to complete his part. Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law, well, not so fussed about that slag Jude Law but the others are delicious. The plot is probably quite interesting too.

If Stewie From Family Guy Was Grown Up….and Real

The other night, while watching the film Blow-Up, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, I was struck by the physical resemblance between the lead character, played by David Hemmings, known in the film only as ‘The Photographer’ and Stewie Griffin.

If Stewie was a grown up, I think he could carve out a nice career for himself as a fashion photographer, perhaps he wouldn’t be so interested in the ladies but the pretty clothes would surely catch his eye. It’s the facial resemblance I mean though, he’s the spitting image! And it made me enjoy the film even more, thinking that it was actually Stewie living life in swinging sixties London town.
