The Dresser 10

The Dresser
Directed by Richard Eyre
Based on the stage play by Ronald Harwood
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ian McKellen, Emily Watson, Sarah Lancashire, Edward Fox, Vanessa Kirby, Tom Brooke
Starz
Air Date: Monday, May 30th, 2016, 9:00pm

As the Nazis crash bombs down on England, an aging actor looks to enthrall audiences with an epic rendition of King Lear, one more time. The actor is unwell, having just checked himself out of a hospital, and it’s up to his dresser, Norman, to keep him upright and ready despite his wife’s objections and pleas to cancel the show. This is the plot description for The Dresser, based on Ronald Harwood’s play and the 1983 film of the same name, that garnered 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Director, Actor (two), and Screenplay. The movie premieres tonight on Starz, a channel that is gaining a reputation for out of the box thinking. With several successful original series crossing many genres, Starz is building as a rival to pay-cable big boys HBO and Showtime. And in an era where every big movie at the theaters is a special effects comic book blockbuster, it’s refreshing to step back to a time where sets were built by human hands and not computer artists, and the stakes in a performance were truly high.

Spoilers for The Dresser below.

As the experienced mountaineer explains to his clients, “Human beings simply aren’t built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747. Our bodies will be literally dying. Everest is another beast altogether.”

Ernest Hemingway said that “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” The spirit of that quote couldn’t be more true when trekking up a treacherous mountain like Mount Everest. But when you’ve reach the goal to get to the peak of the mountain, there is also a story to tell of the trip back to ground. Baltasar Kormákur‘s Everest will focus on that aspect of the story, which tells of the true-life drama of two team’s having successfully climbed the mountain, only to find out that the journey back down can be even more dangerous. The film will feature an all-star cast, and is considered by many to be one of the most anticipated films of the year.

Check out the trailer below.

The Book Thief movie posterThe Book Thief
Directed by Brian Percival
Written by Markus Zusak and Michael Petroni
Starring Sophie Niélisse, Geoffrey Rush, and Emily Watson
Official Site
Fox 2000 Pictures/Studio Babelsberg
Rated PG-13 | 131 Minutes
Release Date: November 8, 2013

Directed by Brian Percival, best known for his work on Downton Abbey, and based on the bestselling novel by Markus Zusak, The Book Thief centers on a young German girl named Liesel, whose Communist mother places her with foster parents during World War II. Her adoptive parents are a middle-aged couple, Rosa and Hans, and she quickly is told to call them “Mama” and “Papa,” which suggests they are to be her permanent parents.

Emily Watson plays her stern adoptive mother, while Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush immediately wins Liesel, and the audience, over with his kindness, most vividly expressed in his warm, sympathetic eyes. Throughout, Rush’s character evokes humanity, morality, and compassion, and I truly came to love him.
