Me and Orson Welles
Richard Linklater 2008
Categories: Curated Films
Cast: Zac Efron, Claire Danes, Kelly Reilly

The Year is 1937 and Orson Welles, enfant terrible of the theatre world (before embarking on his film career), is about to stage a Broadway production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Seventeen-year-old Richard Samuels (Zac Efron, newly graduated from High School Musical) dreams of treading the boards on Broadway and inveighs to impress Welles with an impromptu audition for the latter's Mercury Production Company. After landing a bit part in the production, young Samuels soon discovers that Welles, a man with large appetites and an even larger ego, is spending as much of his energies romancing the ladies (unhindered by his martial status) as he does tending to the the demands of his theatre company. Young Samuels also gets into the spirit of the thing by commencing an affair with a young production assistant (Claire Danes). Fortunately, Director Richard Linklater found in Christian McKay an actor who inhabits the Welles persona (nails it, if you will), skirting easy caricature. Holly Gent Palmo and Vincent Palmo, Jr. adapted the screenplay from the novel by Robert Kaplow of the same name.

Screening
Fri, Oct 09, 08:00PM Prytania Theatre


The Young Victoria
Jean-Marc Vallee 2009
Categories: Curated Films
Cast: Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson, Jim Broadbent

With most period dramas, the "drama," alas, frequently gets smothered under heavy layers of "period," but not so in The Young Victoria, a stunning (dramatically as well as visually) period drama covering the rise to power of young Victoria (Emily Blunt), from attempts to block her ascending the throne by her mother, the Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardson), to her legendary marriage to Prince Albert (Rupert Fiend). Attempting to further his ambitions by taking advantage of Victoria's youth and inexperience is the dashing Lord Melborune (Paul Bettany); only Prince Albert's counsels appear to be able to stave the young queens's loyalty to Melbourne's scheming. At the helm is Quebecois director Jean-Marc Vallee, whose film C.R.A.Z.Y. is a gem of a film that should be in everyone's Netflix queue. With Martin Scorsese lending his prestige as a presenter of the film and an award-worthy script from Gosford Park scribe Julian Fellowes.
