10/28/2011  •  Posted By Roberta  •  Comments Off on Yasmina Reza and Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” will get December release in NY and LA

Carnage, the screen adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s Tony Award-winning comedy God Of Carnage, starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly, will be released in New York and Los Angeles December 16.

The film debuted at the Venice Film Festival September 1, and received its U.S. debut as part of the New York Film Festival later that month. It will be screened in limited release in New York and Los Angeles beginning December 16. Additional nationwide dates will follow.

Reza (Art, Life (x) 3) and director Roman Polanski collaborated on the film, which is set in Park Slope, Brooklyn, but was filmed in Paris. God Of Carnage centers on two sets of upper-middle class parents who attempt and fail to resolve a playground dispute between their children. A discussion over coffee and clafoutis turns into an animalistic battle of the sexes.

How refreshing. A trio of British actresses who are well-respected and beautiful, to boot, have formed a club of sorts. Kate Winslet (36), Rachel Weisz (41) and Emma Thompson (52) have joined in solidarity against succumbing to the lure of plastic surgery. Representing women in their 30’s, 40′s and 50′s, the actresses have made a vow to never go under the knife.

What a nice treat. They are all stunning in their own right, and I think this is a very positive message to send to our youth obsessed society. Women (and actresses in particular) have ridiculous expectations placed upon them to remain eternally youthful. However, in the quest for that look, too many women are looking like sideshow freaks. I can’t for the life of me figure out how they think they look better with all the work they have done.

On occasion, I watch The Bold And The Beautiful. I used to think that Hunter Tylo was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. Now, I just feel sorry for her. She has a perpetually frozen look, boobs far too large for her frame, and lips inflated beyond their capacity. Why? I can’t even watch her without cringing. Such a shame.

From Us Magazine:

Kate Winslet: “I will never give in,” she said. “It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty.”
While the women’s resolve not to go under the knife is real, their league might be more of a way to speak out against ageism than an active organization.
“I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face,” Winslet said.
Thompson, 52, agreed. “I’m not fiddling about with myself,” she exclaimed. “We’re in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60.”
Newly-married Weisz, 41, said that people “who look too perfect don’t look sexy or particularly beautiful.”

I hope the ladies can adhere to their promise. We need more women like this spreading the message that it’s perfectly fine to age gracefully. Kate and Rachel still look good and will continue to get work partly for photogenic reasons, but as pointed out by Huffington Post, Emma Thompson’s vow to resist cosmetic surgery shows real bravery, being now at an age where wrinkles can be hard to cover up with makeup, though not impossible for the top plastic surgeons. Will Kate continue her pledge when she begins to get wrinkles and sags in a few places, or will she succumb to a facelift?

Kate Winslet made a surprise guest appearance at the Port Eliot Literary Festival in St. Germans, Cornwall on July 24. She read from “Mr. Gum And His Power Crystals” prompted by her two young children for whom it is a favourate. They were amongst the audience of children and grown ups who all seemed captivated by her animated hour long read through.

One young fan was so taken by it all that he climbed on stage to get a little closer to the performance. He was however only taking Kate up on her word who invited kids to join her on the stage if they felt the urge.

Added 42 new HQs to the gallery:
