Q & A: Indie Hit 'Enough Said' Is Oscar Race Dark Horse

Nicole Holofcener is one of those respected specialty players who has never crossed over to the mainstream. Now may be her time.

Jim Mickle Talks Smart Horror Remake 'We Are What We Are'

Just three years after Jorge Michel Grau's 2010 Mexican film "We Are What We Are" played at the Cannes Festival market (see clip and original Mexican trailer below), Jim Mickle's American remake, which debuted well at Sundance, played in the festival proper in the Director's Fortnight, which sometimes welcomes smart well-made horror films such as this one. EOne opens the elegantly shot, well-acted film--which deals with a small town religious family maintaining their long tradition of ritual cannibalism-- September 27.

OSCAR WATCH: Oscar Isaac Talks Acting and Guitar Picking for the Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

"Inside Llewyn Davis" is as pure as the driven snow, much like the title character played by gifted actor/musician Oscar Isaac in a breakout role that should earn awards attention. (He played supporting parts in "Sucker Punch" and "Drive," as Carey Mulligan's husband.) The movie is about an artist, for better or worse, who can't be anything but himself. The biggest challenge for the Coen brothers was finding an actor/musician who could carry the movie and sing its roster of challenging folks songs, holding the screen and not sending viewers toward the exits. Isaac was their guy.

'Out in the Dark': The Love that Dare Not Speak Its Name Dares to Challenge Borders

Michael Mayer came to the topic of "Out in the Dark," his debut feature which had its world premiere earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, through a combination of chance and unexpected passion. The Israeli-born filmmaker was eating dinner in Los Angeles with a friend from Tel Aviv who mentioned his work with gay Palestinians living in Israel and told Mayer about their legal, political and emotional uncertainties. "It kind of blew me away," he told me in a phone interview last week. "It was the first time since film school when I was like, 'oh shit, I want to tell that story.'"

Jessica Chastain & Ned Benson Talk the Long Road to TIFF Hit 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby'

One of the unforeseen but delightful surprises at this year's Toronto International Film Festival was "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby." I must confess that, stumbling bleary-eyed into its first 9 am press screening, I did feel slightly concerned about the 190-minute running time of writer-director Ned Benson's debut.
