Official US trailer for Woody Allen's »To Rome with Love« / Detailed plot and character description
This past Tuesday, Yahoo! Movies unveiled the official US trailer for Woody Allen's »To Rome with Love«. I didn't post it on EPO yet, because I was working on a new design and layout for the multimedia section (see below). As it turned out - the waiting paid off. Meanwhile, the Italian film magazine Ciak revealed further details on the plot and characters in its current April 2012 issue, which have been included in the following review.

» To Rome with Love - US Trailer (04/03/2012) «

To Rome with LoveThe film consists of four vignettes that are not connected to each other. Two of these are "Italian", one is "American" and the fourth shows a clash of the two different cultures playing with stereotypes and clichés. This is the part where director Woody Allen steps in front of the camera to play a guy called Jerry. He and his wife Phyllis (Judy Davis) travel to the Eternal City because of the forthcoming wedding of their daughter Hayley (Alison Pill). After arriving there, the stubborn pair not only gets to know brilliant lawyer and future son-in-law Michelangelo (Flavio Parenti), but also his parents (Fabio Armiliato and Rosa Di Brigida). It goes without saying that certain forms of trouble are almost inevitable.

To Rome with LoveOn the Italian side, the first episode recounts the story of Antonio (Alessandro Tiberi) and Milly (Alessandra Mastronardi), a freshly married couple visiting Rome on their honeymoon. However, they are not prepared for what awaits them and find themselves emotionally and physically lost in the sprawling metropolis after a short time. While Milly is overwhelmed by the discovery of the world of cinema and meeting with (real-life) actors Albanian Antonio and Riccardo Scamarcio, Antonio encounters the attractive prostitute Anna (Penelope Cruz). She is unlike any woman he's ever known before and brings him into lots of awkward situations during Milly's absence.

To Rome with LoveThe other Italian vignette tells in the "before, during and after" way what happens when the spotlight is suddenly pointing to a common man. The character in question is Leopold (Roberto Benigni) who gets mistaken for a movie star and becomes famous overnight. From this moment on he is besieged by paparazzi everywhere he goes, pampered like a star and pursued by beautiful women. Will he be able to resist the many temptations and remain faithful and loyal to his wife Sofia (Monica Nappo)? Until this question is answered, his daily life will be filled with strange and funny occurrences including a live TV broadcast of his normal routine of shaving in the morning.

To Rome with LoveThe remaining chapter centers on Jack (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend Sally (Greta Gerwig), a young American couple living in Rome's popular district of Trastevere. Their world is turned upside down by the arrival of Sally's best friend in the shape of Monica (Ellen Page). The bi-curious actress has just split up with her boyfriend, which eventually led to her first sexual encounter with a woman. These factors, combined with Monica's charming appearance and sweetness, have a magical attraction on Jack. As is typical for a Woody Allen film, the obligatory love triangle is not long in coming. But wait, isn't there another actor standing in the background in most of the scenes?

To Rome with LoveAccording to Ciak, all this is told by the adult Jack (Alec Baldwin), who became an architect in California and re-experiences his ancient memories while visiting the Italian capital with his friends. This also explains why Page and Eisenberg are making out in front of him at the end of the trailer and would be characteristic for Woody Allen's odd-ball humor. Put another way, Ellen interacts with both actors, but they are actually the same person.
We will know soon what other surprises the film has to offer and whether these details are true or not. The world premiere in Italy is in just two weeks, with the main cast in attendance.

During the last five days I worked on a new design and layout for the multimedia section. Since the first days of this website, all movie and series clips, movie specials and trailers have been displayed on a single page. While everything might look fine and clearly structured at first glance, I came to the conclusion that the current concept won't work in the long run. The content will increase with each new project causing longer loading times and the visitors will have to scroll down a couple of screens just to view or download a single video. For this reason, the clips in those sections are now sorted alphabetically and divided into sub pages. Each sub page can be easily accessed through either the alphabet matrix on the left, the links on the corresponding movie or series page or the brand new, poster-decorated start page for each category. I hope the new layout will enhance this website and meet your approval!


By the way, actor Josh Pais has shared some information about the upcoming movie project he is doing with Ellen the other day. I assume that the working title is either »Touchy Feely« or »Laggies«.

Kate Winslet launches her new book »The Golden Hat« featuring Ellen and other celebrities to benefit autism charity
Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet had a simple request for the 100 A-list celebrities and cultural luminaries who received her well-worn trilby and were asked to contribute to her coffee table book project promoting autism awareness: "Take a picture with the hat and imagine a wall between you and those you love, imagine being trapped inside yourself, never being able to express your desires, needs and feelings. How would you communicate to the world who you are in a single sentence? What words would you choose? Share something that is important to you."

The resulting collection of intimate self-portraits and unique quotes gives a glimpse into their private thoughts and represents who they are at that moment. Also included in the book are stories, personal email correspondence and poetry by Winslet herself, Icelandic filmmaker Margrét Dagmar Ericsdóttir and her non-verbal autistic son Keli. It is titled »The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism« and is now available in bookstores and online stores everywhere.

Among the people supporting Winslet's cause are: Christina Aguilera, Zac Efron, Julianne Moore, Maria Sharapova, Kobe Bryant, James Franco, Rosie O’Donnell, Ben Stiller, Michael Caine, Ricky Gervais, Michael Phelps, Meryl Streep, Kim Cattrall, Tom Hanks, John C. Reilly, Justin Timberlake, George Clooney, Elton John, Tim Robbins, Naomi Watts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jude Law, Kristin Scott Thomas, Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Page. All the proceeds from the sale will benefit the non-profit Golden Hat Foundation dedicated to eliminating communication barriers for people with autism and creating an environment that holds these individuals as intellectually capable.

Official press release

KATE WINSLET'S BOOK, THE GOLDEN HAT, TO BE PUBLISHED BY SIMON & SCHUSTER

NEW YORK, NY, March 24, 2011 – It was announced today that Simon & Schuster will publish THE GOLDEN HAT, a book by Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet that will feature a collection of stunning self-portraits from celebrities and cultural luminaries, all wearing a "magical" hat to support autism awareness and outreach. Jonathan Karp, Executive Vice President and Publisher and Kerri Kolen, Senior Editor of S&S, negotiated the deal for World rights with Creative Artists Agency. Publication is planned for November 2011.

Winslet has amassed a collection of photos from an amazing array of her friends and renowned personalities who have donned this special hat, taken a self portrait, and passed the hat along from one person to another. Among the participants whose photos are featured in the book are Anna Wintour; Ben Stiller; Brigitte Lacombe; Christina Aguilera; David Souffan; Demi Moore; Don Cheadle; Elijah Wood; Ellen Page; Javier Bardem; Joseph Gordon-Levitt; Jude Law; Julianne Moore; Kevin Bacon; Kyra Sedgwick; Laura Dern; Live Schreiber; Maggie Gyllenhaal; Maria Sharapova; Marion Cottillard; Meryl Streep; Michael Kors; Naomi Watts; Pedro Almodovar; Peter Sarsgaard; Ricky Gervais and many, many more.

Winslet found inspiration for this project in her friends Margret Dagmar Ericsdottir and Ericsdottir"s son Keli, who lives with a severe form of non-verbal autism. Winslet met Ericsdottir when she narrated a documentary film, A Mother's Courage: Talking Back To Autism, about the family"s mission to find a way to connect with Keli. Eventually specialists "unlocked" Keli by teaching him ways to communicate. Despite hardship, Keli now composes beautiful and deeply moving poetry. One of the poems, among the many included in the book, is called "The Golden Hat," which describes a magical hat that enables an autistic boy to communicate. After completing the narration for the film, Kate asked Margret: "Would it help if I started a foundation to raise awareness of the plight of people with autism who are unable to communicate?" With that idea, and with inspiration from Keli's poem, The Golden Hat, the Golden Hat Foundation was born. In addition to raising awareness, the Foundation will raise money to build innovative and specialized campuses which will offer opportunities for education, job training, social supports, recreation, and assisted living. The Foundation's website is www.goldenhatfoundation.org

THE GOLDEN HAT brings together the story of Winslet's friendship with Ericsdottir and family as well as Keli"s original poetry and writings with photographs of these celebrities and cultural icons who each share a personal statement about what their first words would be if they too were unable to communicate but suddenly “unlocked” after years of silence.

Karp said, "When we met with Kate Winslet, she told us how she became so impassioned about this issue, and we were quickly convinced that this book will both raise awareness and tell a remarkable story.”

Kolen, who will edit the book, said, “The most moving aspects of this book are Keli"s extraordinary poetry and Kate and Margret"s personal journey. It is a privilege to work with all
three of these exceptional talents. THE GOLDEN HAT will be a beautiful book with a vital message, to benefit a most worthy cause.”

Kate Winslet is one of the world"s best-known and best-loved actresses who has built a career on a series of film performances which defy type-casting – each one a new and different character, from high drama to comedy to passionate romance to quirky individualism. She made her film debut at the age of 17 in Peter Jackson"s "Heavenly Creatures" and immediately made her mark. She won her first Oscar nomination in Ang Lee"s „Sense and Sensibility" but it was her performance as Rose in "Titanic" that first brought her to the attention of millions worldwide and delivered her second Oscar nomination. She won further nominations for her roles in "Iris", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and „Little Children" and won Best Actress for her performance as a former Nazi in „The Reader" in 2009. She is the youngest actress ever to have received 6 Oscar nominations. Other memorable and award-winning performances include "Revolutionary Road" in which she was re-teamed with Leonardo DiCaprio, directed by Sam Mendes, "Finding Neverland" and "Romance and Cigarettes". In 2010, Kate filmed the lead role in a five hour HBO television drama, "Mildred Pierce". The series will be seen in 2011. She joins the ensemble cast of Steven Soderbergh"s action thriller "Contagion" which will open in 2011 and stars in Roman Polanski"s forthcoming comedy "God of Carnage". Kate has two children, Mia and Joe, and divides her time between New York and the UK.

First movie/production stills from Woody Allen's »To Rome With Love« / Possible new project: »Laggies«
Medusa Film LogoMedusa Film has shared the first official stills and production photos from Woody Allen's »Nero Fiddled«. That's the good news. The bad news is that Ellen is not pictured in any of them. As things stand, the Rome-set comedy is scheduled to premiere on April 20 in Italy, with a limited US release to follow on June 22, 2012.

After reading actor Josh Pais' recent tweet, it doesn't take a genius to come to the conclusion that Ellen will likely star in the upcoming dramedy »Laggies« directed by Lynn Shelton (»Humpday«). The project was first mentioned by Variety in August 2011 and tells the story of a 28-year-old woman who is unable to cope with the pressures brought on by her boyfriend’s recent marriage proposal. In turn, she escapes into the comfort of adolescence by befriending a group of high schoolers. No official word on that yet, but as always I will keep you updated with the latest information as it comes in!



Update - 03/19/2012

Sony Pictures Classics has announced that the film will now be called »To Rome With Love«. Here’s the full press release:

Sony Pictures Classics LogoNEW YORK (March 19, 2012) — On the heels of releasing the award-winning and commercial hit, Midnight in Paris, Sony Pictures Classics announced that on June 22 it will release Woody Allen’s latest film, the newly titled TO ROME WITH LOVE.

TO ROME WITH LOVE was a name selected as an homage to the eternal city of Romewhere the film was shot on location last summer. This will be used for its worldwide release. The film’s former title, Nero Fiddled, while an appropriate and humorous phrase in the U.S., is not a familiar expression overseas and many international territories preferred a more globally understood name.

Written and directed by Woody Allen, TO ROME WITH LOVE is a story about a number of people in Italy — some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors — and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into. The film stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. TO ROME WITH LOVE is a Gravier Productions film produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum, and financed by the Italian production and distribution company, Medusa Film.

Update - 03/22/2012

Five new images have gone online today, which give us a first look at Ellen holding hands with Jesse Eisenberg.
