»Into the Forest« hits theatres in Canada / »Tallulah« makes its international premiere at Sundance London

On the occasion of the theatrical release of »Into the Forest« in Canada on June 3, Ellen Page met up with director Patricia Rozema for some press work in Toronto during the first week of the month. She sat down for interviews with ET Canada, etalk, The National, Space's InnerSpace, Breakfast Television Toronto, Daily Hive, Daily VICE as well as The Watchlist, and made appearances on CBC Radio's "Q" with Shadrach Kabango and the Roz & Mocha Show on KiSS 92.5.

The duo was also present for a Q&A following a special advance screening of the movie held at Cineplex Odeon Varsity Theatre on Wednesday evening. Furthermore, the Canadian Press released an in-depth print article giving insights into how Ellen came across Jean Hegland's novel while being in her native city of Halifax, the bond she developed with her co-star Evan Rachel Wood, and the intense preparation the two leading actresses went through. The latter included, among other things, a strict diet to depict their characters' growing hunger as resources diminish and crisis looms, the limited use of the TV and computer in order to get a feeling of isolation and being deprived of the luxuries of life, as well as learning vital dance moves and basic survival skills like how to skin a boar. Despite her undoubtedly busy schedule, Ellen even found time to record a short video message on LGBT Pride Month for Pride Toronto.


You can read, listen to and watch all the mentioned information in the press archive, audio section and our YouTube playlist!


We are also excited to announce that Rozema's post-apocalyptic drama will be screening at the Filmfest Munich in Germany on June 25 and 27, and will receive its DVD premiere in Sweden on June 27 thanks to Njutafilms! Since the last update, we got our hands on 12 new HQ stills, whereby only a few have been added to the gallery so far. The rest is supposed to be used for the upcoming US release and therefore will be held back until June 23. So stay tuned and make sure to check back on the given day for more beautiful shots of Ellen and her co-stars!

Sundance Film Festival: London

At around the same time as the events occurring in Canada, »Tallulah« made its international premiere at the Sundance London Film Festival on June 2 with director Sian Heder and producer Heather Rae in attendance. Judging by the reviews and reports (see also our summary below), the drama went down very well with the festival crowd as well as with the British critics.

Let us hope this trend continues when Netflix releases Heder's directorial debut on July 29 and that the lovely, down-to-earth, talented and eloquent filmmaker gets the attention, recognition and success she deserves! You can actually take part in this effort by following this link and adding »Tallulah« to your watchlist now (#80093198)! And finally we are very pleased to be the first website to share with you 7 brand new movie stills, courtesy of Netflix!

»Tallulah« - Sundance London Film Festival - Press Reviews
"The three lead performances are uniformly excellent, but Blanchard delivers the standout. The plucky charm of Page’s previous roles translates well into Lu’s impecunious nomad, shunning the care of others until she is ill-equipped to care for someone herself. Similarly, a dream sequence that both Lu and Margo experience feels like a strange atonal choice on Heder’s part, out of step with the rest of her film. But Tallulah is a confident, heartfelt debut that explores the roles and choices of real women, even if those choices are unlikely ones. [...] Similarly, a dream sequence that both Lu and Margo experience feels like a strange atonal choice on Heder’s part, out of step with the rest of her film. But Tallulah is a confident, heartfelt debut that explores the roles and choices of real women, even if those choices are unlikely ones." (7 out of 10) — Josh Franks, BadCantina

"Tallulah is a light-hearted, though also quite deep comedy-drama that involves from the off. There are three truly superb performances – Ellen Page secures her best role since her wonderful turn in Juno, a character who one looks upon both shamefully and with empathy. It’s a superb performance and she’s a joy to watch in every scene, as is the reliable Alison Janney, a character who actually shares a lot with Page’s – just managing to keep everything together at a time when she stands to lose everything. Then there’s Tammy Blanchard’s Carolyn, a character also struggling with her own demons and again a performance worthy of mention from her introduction as the slightly-slutty, confident, provided for ‘real housewife’ of Beverly Hills, to the tormented should we see during the film’s closing scenes. A highlight in the all three actresses’ already gleaming resumes. [...] Tallulah is wonderfully written, directed and acted - in fact debutant feature helmer Sian Heder's writing is exemplary thoughout, her direction solid, and as a debut feature as a whole, this really rather impresses." (4 out of 5) — Paul Heath, The Hollywood News

"Tallulah is written and filmed very much from a female perspective, with a woman director/screenwriter and three fine actresses at the centre of it. Ellen Page is as reliable and engaging as ever, Allison Janney demonstrates yet again that she’s one of the most criminally underrated actresses around and Tammy Blanchard shines in a role that could be over-cooked far too easily: as she delves deeper into the character, she shifts our attitudes from contempt to compassion." (3.5 out of 5.0) — Freda Cooper, MovieMarker

"Page and Janney are both on great form, and it’s a pleasure to see the two of them spar and bond across the film, Tallulah’s free spirit clashing with the older woman’s firmly set habits, taking comfort and security within her life’s rigid rules. Blanchard is a bit more one-note, all wispy voice and woozy smiles before giving way to hysteria, but there’s a nice appearance from Uzo Aduba as a child services worker on the case. If nothing else, it’s pretty delightful to see a film led so much by its women, a set of rounded, complex female characters pushing the men firmly into the wings. Heder’s direction offers a few whimsical indie touches in the film’s occasional floaty dream sequences, but for the most part Tallulah’s feet are firmly on the ground, tackling an outlandish scenario head-on." — Dominic Preston, Candid Magazine

"Carolyn initially appears an intolerable, self-absorbed wreck but Blanchard skilfully reveals her as a more wounded, sympathetic women than first appeared. The interactions between these complex women, as their lives intertwine, are a spectacle to behold and Heder’s calm, flowing direction allows each character space to breathe. Despite the contrivances of the narrative, this is a graceful, emotive, funny exploration of maternal love that is as strong a showcase as any for why we need to address the gender inequality surrounding film directors. [...] A graceful, emotive, funny exploration of maternal love that is as strong a showcase as any for why we need to address the gender inequality surrounding film directors." (4 out of 5) — Luke Channell, HeyUGuys

"Complex character writing weaves in restrained use of flashback and continually reveals new shades of grey in the triptych of women who are all superbly cast. Getting Page and Janney together again pays off hugely – the two have great chemistry in a surrogate mother/daughter relationship that remains distinct from that of Juno. [...] What could have been a run-of-the-mill TV movie achieves gravitas through developed character motivations and performances given room to breathe. Even when indulging in lighter comedic dialogue, Tallulah circles profound truths." (4 out of 5) — Rachel Brook, One Room With A View

"A welcome return to form for Ellen Page, Tallulah is a well-meaning examination of what it takes to be a mother and who should have the right to be a parent. There is a fair amount of hand-wringing too, but the performances make this very watchable." — Cassam Looch, Flickreel Review

"Janney and Page work wonderfully together on screen and both bring grounded and deeply personal performances in their roles. Janney in particular has an interesting plot thread which sees her trying to come to terms with her divorce and newly single life. [...] Unfortunately, despite the brilliant cast, the plot often becomes a lillte too absurd. A big part of this is to do with Page’s character. It feels throughout as though we are supposed to be sympathetic for her kidnapping, but Heder’s script feels like it’s missing just one tiny element to tip us to Tallulah’s side. Without this, at best you feel sorry that she’s gotten to the point of kidnapping, at worst she comes off as a conniving, selfish young girl who has no regard for anyone else as long as she manages to stay out of trouble. [...] Tallulah is an interesting if occasionally absurd story that is helped massively by it’s impressively strong cast. With just a little more time on screen Ellen Page could have catapulted the film to perfection, instead it sits neatly above average and still demands viewing." — Johnny Ellis, Red Carpet News TV

"Page and Janney are both fantastic in their respective roles, and it’s not hard at all to imagine Page being in the awards conversation come the end of the year. It’s another Oscar-worthy performance from Ellen Page, who really helps add the shades of grey to the moral dilemma in which Tallulah finds herself. [...] The film itself, however, has its flaws. There are some great light-hearted moments littered throughout, but these are at least equalled by the number of jokes that don’t land. And while it’s very much grounded in dramatic territory, it still would have been stronger if these moments had been more finely-tuned. [...] Yet it’s a strong film regardless, and one totally worthy of the global platform Netflix is able to give it." (3 out of 5) — Kenji Lloyd, Final Reel

"Heder shows no signs of nerves with her first feature, boldly creating a trio of women who are, initially, prickly at best, slowly fleshing them out to reveal each as altogether more complex and exploring notions of motherhood beyond traditional expectations. [...] Signs of Heder's TV work occasionally poke through, such as the desire to add a romance subplot involving Margo's doorman (Felix Solis) when the film would benefit from a leaner approach. An initial foray into magic realism also feels at odds with the rest of the action, although Heder ultimately stays true to the idea in a way many will find rewarding." — Amber Wilkinson, Eye For Film

"In Tallulah, Sian Heder elicits superb performances from her lead actresses: Allison Janney, Ellen Page and a stunning Tammy Blanchard. Page and Janney have a natural rapport, a mother-daughter chemistry that's funny and touching; even though we know it is built on a lie. Page maintains an appealing quality that allows us to forgive Tallulah’s impulsive and destructive tendencies. Janney lends a heart-rending quality to Margo, a woman reeling from the confusion of losing both her husband and her son. [...] With surprising dashes of magical realism, calm direction and fluid film-making, Sian Heder has crafted a poignant film that's both sad and uplifting - a rueful look at the risks and gains found in our relationships with others and how these can change us. Beautifully acted and sensitively written, Heder's film is a bittersweet pleasure." — R.H. Zelen, /Garbage-file

Ellen Page nabs lead role in David Freyne's post-apocalyptic horror »The Third Wave«

ScreenDaily reports that Ellen Page has landed the lead role opposite rising Irish actor Sam Keeley in the psychological horror film »The Third Wave«, written and directed by David Freyne.

The Third Wave - Cast and Crew

The story takes place in a post-Zombie epidemic era. Europe is in the aftermath of a devastating virus that has gripped the continent for six years, transforming humans into zombie-like monsters. A cure has been found but society is divided into those who were once infected, and committed terrible violent acts, and those who never contracted the virus. In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement, fueled by the deep divisions, threatens to plunge the region into chaos again. "The Third Wave brings an entire new perspective to the zombie genre, which I love," said Page. "David Freyne truly shifts his lens on society's role in the apocalyptic world. I'm so grateful for this opportunity to share his thoughtful approach to horror with audiences."

Rachael O'Kane and Rory Dungan at Dublin-based Tilted Pictures produce alongside Page while France's BAC Films Distribution and the UK's Bounder & Cad's Mark Huffam and Aidan Elliot are co-producing. Financiers include Irish Film Board (IFB), Northern Ireland Screen as well as Bac Films, which will also handle international sales with CAA and WME taking care of North America. "Ellen Page is simply one of the best actors of her generation and we cannot wait to collaborate with her in bringing this truly original and exciting genre film to life," commented Tilted Pictures' Rory Dungan. "We are thrilled to be working on David's first film," Bac Films' general manager Mathieu Robinet added. "The script is such a fresh and compelling take on the genre. We know that the production team will craft an exceptional elevated horror movie in the vein of "Let The Right One In" or "It Follows" that will resonate with a broad audience."

This ambitious project marks the Irish director's feature debut, following a series of successful genre short films including a proof-of-concept prequel called "The First Wave", which set the scenario for »The Third Wave«. Filming will commence on location in Ireland later on this year.

»»» Ellen Page Online – Happy 10th Anniversary – April 30, 2006 - April 30, 2016 «««

On April 30, 2006 - around the time when »Hard Candy« and »X-Men: The Last Stand« came out and Ellen's international career eventually took off - this website initially launched in a German version only under ellen-page.net with an English edition following under further domains just a few months later. The overall concept was to support one of Canada's most promising young female acting talents in every way possible and allow the fans from all around the world to connect with the actress' work. Today we can still proudly say that we are here to provide you the latest updates and information on Ellen Page. Over the last 10 years this project has gone through many good times and a few rough ones (it's not always possible to pursue a hobby in the face of changing living conditions and varying workloads for example), but in the end I strongly believe the positives have by far outweighed the negatives. Apart from that, such a long running time is a great achievement alone; especially if you consider that it is still largely maintained by the same people.

One of the highlights was definitely Ellen's interview with the San Francisco Chronicle on December 13, 2007, where she publicly mentioned this site for the first time (thanks to the kind journalist Walter Addiego who wrote the article it was even possible to obtain a print copy of it). The Oscar nomination for Best Actress in 2008, Ellen's overwhelming Facebook posting on December 7, 2010 and our forum member Chelsea Clocksin appearing as an extra in Drew Barrymore’s »Whip It« left an everlasting memory as well.

I, the creator and webmaster of EPO, will also never forget how I traveled 700 kilometers by train across the country to see »The Tracey Fragments« at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2007. Furthermore it was always a pleasure to receive recognition and support from companies like 20th Century Fox, 20th Century Fox Searchlight, Lionsgate, Warner Bros. Germany, Mammoth Advertising, Team Coco Digital, Rhino Records, capelight pictures and Koch Media as well as filmmakers and producers like Barry Mendel (»Peacock«), Maryam Henein (»Vanishing of the Bees«), Jonathon Kay (»Naya: Legend Of The Golden Dolphin«) or Tommy O'Haver (»An American Crime«) that provided press material, giveaways and useful information at first hand.

A fan site can also only be as good as the people behind it. For this reason, I would like to expressly thank all contributors and companions who came together to make this possible and made EPO what it is today. My sincere and heartfelt gratitude goes out to Wayne MacNaughton and Trisha North for their tireless work as proofreaders as well as advisors and being always on the spot; to Mireille Lanser, the good soul of this project and the girl behind EllenPageCanadian on Instagram and Tumblr, who just joined the team in August 2015, is already indispensable and I consider one of the best friends I've ever had. Also to Jim Hodgkinson, the first proofreader and long-term staff member, and to the group of active and former forum moderators including Milo de Villiers, Daniel Freer, Lori Moore, Michael Meyhoefer and Jaimie Etkin. On a day like this, I also would like to remember those that are no longer with us like our forum moderator and good friend Allan Trick (✝1952-2012), who unexpectedly and suddenly passed away on December 10, 2012. He's gone but not forgotten and will always be a part of EPO and will be in our hearts forever!

At the moment there are several things in the making, but due to spare leisure time it wasn't possible to finalize them so far. Here's a quick overview on what we are currently working on:
  • a completely new design and layout of the website, including a responsive version in order to make it ready for mobile devices and different kinds of screen resolutions.
  • a portal page where you can see the latest news and updates at a glance. This will also involve a two-parted news system with a section dedicated to quick updates and a blog for longer and more extensive postings such as festival reports and press releases.
  • a fresh design for the image gallery including a mobile theme.
  • a redesign of the audio section to present you the latest podcasts in more modern fashion.
  • a media gallery containing the latest video clips which will allow you to dynamically browse and watch the footage you are looking. For this reason we also stopped updating the existing video section since we don't want to put further efforts in something that will be replaced in the foreseeable future anyway.
However, we are not celebrating empty-handed today. In the past hours we have added no less than 800 new images to the gallery including over 100 outtakes from various photoshoots over the last few years, which you have surely never seen before!

EPO - 10th Anniversary - April 30, 2016

We hope you enjoy this update and that you continue to stay with us on this wonderful journey! As mentioned many times before, we are really happy about any kind of feedback and contribution we get from the fans of Ellen, our visitors and followers. So don't be shy and drop us a line in the comment section below. Feel free to get in touch with us via email, the contact form, Twitter or Facebook and share your thoughts, suggestions and ideas with us. Since such a website cannot be upheld with hard work, dedication and devotion only, donations are greatly welcomed in order to cover the monthly costs and occasional extra expenses. Needless to say that the submission of your own photos and video footage related to Ellen is always much appreciated as well. Generally speaking, there are many, many ways to support and get involved with Ellen Page Online – your best source dedicated to Ellen Page! In this sense, Happy 10th anniversary and we look forward to the next 10 years!
