Actually everyone shines in Brooklyn. Brooklyn was the first film I screened for TIFF. I sat in the theatre beside my friend Teri Hart and we just smiled at each other the whole way through. This film is sweet and warm and difficult and it’s kind. Full Story

One of the things I’m pretty sure is a universal experience of children of immigrants is you hear all of the stories of how it was, back home. How different it is here. And the same way Canadians have a running tally of all famous people who are Canadian and will tell you at the drop of a hat, any time there’s someone vaguely of your parents’ country of origin in the news or entertainment, you get a text or a call or a ‘have you read…?’ So I’m going to have to endure my mother’s smug ‘I TOLD you about Colm Toíbín’ because Saoirse Ronan is starring in Brooklyn based on his book and I might want to watch it over and over and over. Full Story

Those who don’t enjoy Wes Anderson’s films knock it for their preciousness and pretention. Sometimes, yes. But I will defend The Royal Tenenbaums every day. And how can you hate Bottle Rocket? Also, Moonrise Kingdom was one of my favourite movies of 2012. Maybe my favourite movie of 2012. Full Story

And why wouldn’t they? She’s talented and has carved out a niche playing tough but vulnerable kids, and she has proven action capabilities (see also: Hanna). A superhero role seems like the next natural step, right? But Marvel is going beyond just putting a name on a top ten list—they’re prototyping Full Story

Back in March 2011 I reported exclusively that Jennifer Lawrence was the first choice to play Katniss in The Hunger Games. At one point however, they were also interested in Saoirse Ronan, particularly after her performance in Hanna (click here for a refresher) but that she would have to really, REALLY dazzle producers to take the job away. Full Story

Written by Sarah Do you know how long it took me to master pronouncing “Saoirse”? I keep wanting to say “Cerise”. Seer-shuh. I have to keep repeating it to myself whenever I see her name. Seer-shuh. Saoirse Ronan is rapidly becoming one of my favorite young actresses. Full Story

Saoirse Ronan enters the Black Hole of Taste

Written by Sarah I think you all understand my disdain for the Twilight Saga as “literature”, and that I hold the movies to be only slightly better at best. I have zero respect for Stephenie Meyer as a writer. One of the few times I’ve ever been in synch with Oprah was when she had Meyer on her show and proceeded to treat Meyer like a housewife who won the lottery (which, basically, she did). Full Story

17-off at the Met: Dakota & Saoirse

I suppose, if there’s anyone who could get away with the Valentino flower tulle explosion worn by Dakota Fanning at the Met Gala it was probably Dakota Fanning. She’s 17. Prom is still within the parametres of her actual experience. But f-ck is this thing ever ugly. And you have to wonder – did they really design this for 18 and under? I don’t think so. Full Story

Saoirse Ronan was in New York yesterday promoting Hanna. As I noted yesterday in the Cate Blanchett post, Hanna opens on Friday and you’re totally seeing it, right? The star of course of Hanna is Saoirse. And Saoirse’s performance is so impressive, she had Lionsgate on pause on Jennifer Lawrence for Katniss in The Hunger Games – click here Full Story

Young vs. old Hunger Games

Written by Sarah I’ve been saying for the past year that sixteen-year-old Saorise Ronan should be Katniss, and after seeing her in True Grit, I also thought that fourteen-year-old Hailee Steinfeld would also make a good Katniss. Full Story

Exclusive I was the first to report yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence has emerged as the frontrunner for the role of Katniss in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games. Several hours later, just before the end of the business day, Variety posted the same, confirming my initial story that Lawrence has indeed “generated the most interest” even though they listed Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin as possible contenders too. Full Story

Now this is a trailer: Hanna edition

I know. It’s one of my common refrains. That there is an art to cutting movie trailers and most of the time, Hollywood doesn’t give a sh-t. Which is why when a really, really great one comes along, it’s something to fist pump about. The film is Hanna, due in theatres in April, starring the always sublime Cate Blanchett and a surprisingly enigmatic Eric Bana. Full Story
