SARANAC LAKE, NY—The Adirondack Abortion Access Committee Voters for Change is proud to present a second screening of the award-winning feature film “Happening” at BluSeed Studios, located at 24 Cedar Street in Saranac Lake, on November 19 at 7 p.m. -Best-selling French film that debuted in the United States last spring and won the Golden Lion for Best Picture at the prestigious Venice Film Festival last year. It is based on a true story and is set in the early 1960s, when abortion and contraception were illegal in France and anyone who had an abortion (or helped someone else to have an abortion) risked prison.

The screenplay is based on the book Event by Annie Ernaux who has just received the Nobel Prize for Literature 2022 for all of her work. Anne’s story is very relevant now that the Supreme Court has overturned its own groundbreaking Roe v. Wade – a decision made nearly 50 years ago that guaranteed a constitutional right to abortion. A round table will immediately follow the screening. The panel will consist of Dr. Eve Burns, Dr. James Pate, Katie Ramus of Planned Parenthood of the North Country, NY, and Ms. Shir Filler, local educator. Dr. Dorothy Federman will serve as moderator.

In French with English subtitles, “Happening”, which is unrated and contains adult content, is intended for mature audiences only. Masks will be optional. The requested donations of $10 will be used to help provide access to abortion in restrictive states.

The Harry Potter book with the worst film adaptation according to fans https://litary.net/the-harry-potter-book-with-the-worst-film-adaptation-according-to-fans/ Mon, 16 May 2022 20:41:00 +0000 https://litary.net/the-harry-potter-book-with-the-worst-film-adaptation-according-to-fans/

In a “Harry Potter” Reddit thread, u/BoneyRL ranked “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” as the worst film adaptation, citing its “disappointing” storytelling. Other users concurred with this assessment, condemning the film for its truncated narrative. Like u/Genealogy-1 wrote: “I agree, the best are the ones where they really stick to the book, the costumes (especially the uniforms) and the sets. [That’s] why I like the first two. I really felt like I was in the world.”

For many fans, his omission of critical plot points from the book weakened the film’s internal logic. An user pointed to the film’s failure to portray the essential backstory of Voldemort’s mother, which laid the groundwork for Tom Riddle’s villain’s slow regression to his current soulless incarnation. Other Redditors have condemned the main set’s portrayals, particularly in regards to their budding romantic relationships. Like u/Myble said, “Not to mention the very awkward and forced romantic interactions between Harry and Ginny, making their whole relationship super weird without the context of the book.”

For some users, the adaptation of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” extinguished the magic of the whole series. U/erin_bex revealed, “I’ve seen every movie in theaters…and stop watching after this one. The books were iconic and they destroyed the source material.”

Ultimately, while the “Harry Potter” franchise arguably remains a historic feat in literature and film, its adaptations will likely inspire heated debate for generations to come.

Film Talk: Looking Back – A swashbuckling ploy in The Man in the Iron Mask https://litary.net/film-talk-looking-back-a-swashbuckling-ploy-in-the-man-in-the-iron-mask/ Sat, 16 Apr 2022 09:35:00 +0000 https://litary.net/film-talk-looking-back-a-swashbuckling-ploy-in-the-man-in-the-iron-mask/
All for one and one for all – John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu and Jeremy Irons in The Man in the Iron Mask

All for one, and – indeed – one for all…

Directed, produced and written by Randall Wallace, 1998’s The Man in the Iron Mask starred a young Leonardo DiCaprio in a dual role as lead character and villain, alongside Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu and Gabriel Byrne. as Musketeers themselves – growing old, retiring and questioning their faith.

Based, of course, on characters from Dumas’ Romances d’Artagnan series (which began with the highly acclaimed The Three Musketeers), the plot of The Man in the Iron Mask is loosely adapted from elements of the series, The Viscount of Bragelonne.

Although it bears similarities in storytelling to Douglas Fairbanks’ flamboyant 1929 film The Iron Mask and the 1939 version directed by James Whale, 1998’s The Man in the Iron Mask is unparalleled by those predecessors. and presents the characters of Dumas in all their fascinating splendour. ..

Dominating France with a selfish heart and an iron fist, cruel young King Louis XIV (DiCaprio) squanders the treasury on war and women, condemning his people to a life of poverty.

As the loyal leader of the king’s guard, Captain d’Artagnan (Byrne), protects his sovereign from any plotting against him, though he secretly wishes the king to prove himself a better man.

When Louis’ wandering gaze is drawn to the beautiful Christine (Judith Godrèche), the king has his fiancé sent to the military front, where – as Louis had of course hoped – he is killed.

Yet said fiancé happened to be the son of a very dangerous man – Athos (Malkovich), a former musketeer and now a grieving father bent on revenge.

Athos soon joins a plot perpetrated by his former brother-in-arms Aramis (Irons) who, disillusioned with Louis’ reign, hatches a plan to remove him from the throne. With their faithful friend Porthos (Depardieu) by their side, the ex-musketeers are determined to pursue their just cause, and Aramis believes that a mysterious prisoner known only as the Man in the Iron Mask (also DiCaprio) will be the key.

But in their path stands their old friend d’Artagnan, who will stop at nothing to defend his king, even if it means a deadly conflict with his former brothers…

Although some critics at the time disliked DiCaprio’s performance in his dual role, his portrayal of his polarized characters held up well.

Unsurprisingly, Irons (right at home and in his wheelhouse) and Malkovich (just a fantastic actor capable of anything) are sublime everywhere. Byrne’s turn as the solemn, fair and dedicated d’Artagnan is perfectly balanced with Depardieu’s voracious and indulgent Porthos, and they shine as two of the most beloved characters in classic literature.

With a compelling plot, great dialogue, plenty of action, outlandish costumes, romance, deception and duplicity, The Man in the Iron Mask is a cinephile’s delight and a wonderful adaptation of literature. which – notably – no prior knowledge of the source material is required to enjoy.

Settle in for a quiet evening and let Leo and the boys take you into a world of swashbuckling adventure. On guard!

Movie Review: The Lost Girl https://litary.net/movie-review-the-lost-girl/ Fri, 17 Dec 2021 11:49:17 +0000 https://litary.net/movie-review-the-lost-girl/

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut is a fascinating and nuanced look at motherhood

Content of the article

The lost girl is the last case of a movie with MLTS – Syndrome of the Deceptive Trailer. Between the deep bass music, the weird whispers, and the creepy, mysterious air of Olivia Colman, you’d be forgiven for expecting some sort of Girl on the train , which is-even-true-here thriller. You might still expect it deep in the film’s two hours, waiting for the inevitable twist. Well – spoiler alert – the twist is there is no twist.

Content of the article

This is not a review of the film, just the trailer. The lost girl , based on a 2006 novel by Elena Ferrante, and a writing / directing debut for actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, is a fascinating examination of motherhood and the alleged selflessness of those who engage in it.

Colman plays Leda, an Italian literature professor taking a solo vacation on a small Greek island. Caring Lyle (Ed Harris) helps her settle in, and the next morning she is reading on the beach when she realizes she is far from alone here. Extended family descend to shore like a flock of bickering birds – loud children, louder young men and harassed women, including young mother Nina (Dakota Johnson), who panics when she loses track of his daughter. Leda helps reunite mother and child, but impulsively keeps the child’s doll.

Content of the article

The doll’s presence, so similar to the one she owned, sends Leda into blackouts. And this is where a fortuitous casting comes in. Jessie Buckley looks a bit like Colman and, with her accent just so, is quite believable as a young Leda, trying to balance college life with a working husband and two daughters looking to be around seven and five. year.

During many flashbacks, we see Leda having fun with her children but also being annoyed by them, overwhelmed by their needs, and, in a scene that many young parents will sympathize with (if only secretly), delighted when the work briefly takes him away from them. . She’s not a bad mother, just a stressed mother.

Gyllenhaal fairly perfectly balances the here and now with the then and the there, showing how past experience can influence our current decisions in ways that may seem irrational even to ourselves. And, conversely, how an event in the present can suddenly send us back to a memory of a previous trauma or joy.

Content of the article

This all leads to a revelation of something that happened to Leda when she was a young mother herself. So yeah, there is some sort of twist, but probably not the one you’d expect. Along the way, she becomes more and more anxious and angry with the disturbances of her fellow vacationers, who are truly thugs, their rambunctious behavior always threatening to turn into real violence.

But it is the institution of motherhood that is at the forefront of this drama. (A strange word, institution; applied to prisons, asylums, and parenthood.) Leda was once thrilled to spend time away from her young daughters, she says, because she’s selfish. But she longed to be back with them for the same reason. “I am not a natural mother,” she concludes.

Maybe, but viewers will be forgiven for finding themselves just as unnatural in their feelings. Perhaps the biggest plot twist is the one it creates in your own head.

The Lost Daughter opens December 17 in theaters and December 31 on Netflix.

3.5 out of 5 stars
