Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Rosemarie DeWitt, John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe, Tom Everett Scott, Josh Pence. ’Tis the season for Oscar hopefuls, and a current frontrunner for Best Picture, La La Land , will make its bow this weekend. Academy Award-nominee Damien Chazelle began writing the musical shortly after re-locating to the Left Coast a while back. “I started writing this movie about six years ago,” he said during an onstage interview with the New York Film Critics Series recently. “I had just moved to L. A. and I was trying to figure out my way in. I wanted to make movies like a lot of people in that city. La La Land stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as Mia and Sebastian. Both are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. “We saw Whiplash at Sundance in 2014 and immediately tracked down Damien Chazelle to tell him we were blown away by his filmmaking and couldn’t wait to work with him on his next movie,” commented Erik Feig, co-president of Lionsgate Motion Picture... “Bringing Damien’s incredible talent and passion to a genre like an original musical was a unique opportunity, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have given him the tools and experience to make his singular film come to CinemaScope life. Channel received an Oscar-nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for Whiplash , which Sony Classics debuted in October, 2014. The film, Chazelle’s second feature directorial, grossed over $13M domestically. Music from La La Land came via Justin Hurwitz, who Chazelle went to college with and has worked on all of his films. Hurwitz immediately bunkered down with the project after catching wind of it. “We have this kind of shorthand and relationship that is at the foundation of everything I do,” he said. “So by the time I had even this basic idea for this movie he was writing the melodies that became the score and songs. Lionsgate will open La La Land in five locations this weekend, expanding to about 200 runs on December 16 ahead of going nationwide by Christmas Day. The company said it “expects to be fully wide in January,” adding: “The film’s critical success, early awards buzz and general word-of-mouth have been fantastic, so the film is truly the best [marketing] tool we have. Damien has made a film that is uplifting and joyful, about believing in and pursuing your dreams – something that everyone can relate to this holiday season. Director: Katie Holmes. Cast: Katie Holmes, Stefania LaVie Owen, Eve Lindley, Richard Kind, Mark Consuelos, Luke Wilson. Actress Katie Holmes optioned the book which would become the feature All We Had and her first outing as a feature film director. Veteran producer and friend Jane Rosenthal joined the project in its early stages. “She had been talking about wanting to direct and get out of what people had traditionally been bringing her,” said Rosenthal. “She ended up wanting to direct this piece. It’s a wonderful mother-daughter story that I could relate to as well. I also believed in Katie and her talents. The feature centers on Ruthie Carmichael (Stefania LaVie Owen) and her mother Rita (Holmes), who teeter on the edge of poverty when their landlord kicks them out. After some time, the pair head East in search of a better life. Their money runs out, however, and when their car breaks down, they find themselves stranded in a small town called Fat River where their luck finally takes a turn. Rita lands a steady job waitressing at the local diner. Meanwhile, Peter Pam, a transgender waitress, becomes Ruthie’s closest friend, and Arlene, the no-nonsense head waitress, takes Rita under her wing. But, into this quirky utopia comes smooth-talking mortgage broker Vick Ward, who entices Rita with a subprime loan. “I wanted to make this film for my directorial debut because the story is full of humanity with characters I felt were very authentic,” noted Holmes, who.
