Final Synopsis for Season of the Witch

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Lionsgate’s supernatural thriller Season of the Witch stars Nicolas Cage as medieval knight Behmen, who undertakes a mission pitting him against a devious witch and making him the last hope for the world against an ancient and dark force. His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, Behmen and his trusted companion, Felson (Ron Perlman), are apprehended and ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl believed to be the witch responsible for the Plague to a remote abbey where her powers can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is no ordinary human and that their mission will pit them against an evil that even in these dark times they never could have imagined.

Full-Length Trailer for Season of the Witch

Posted by Anna with 4 Comments

Following up on the teaser trailer that appeared online last month, Lionsgate has released a full-length trailer for Season of the Witch, which hits theatres on March 19, 2010.

In Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.

A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.

When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.

New role: Homeland

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Claire Foy has been confirmed for a new role: She will play Erin in multi-award winning writer/director Peter Kosminsky’s upcoming Channel 4 drama ‘Homeland‘. Filming for the 4 hour drama serial will take place February – May 2010. Karolyne Erfurt will play the part of her friend.

Synopsis:

Homeland is a fictional four part drama that tells the story of Erin, an 18-year-old Londoner who, while spending a summer in Israel, finds herself face to face with the brutal realities of the conflict in the Middle East.

The drama will intercut between two timeframes and stories: that of Erin in the present-day, and that of her grandfather who, in the 1940s was part of the peace-keeping force in Palestine and witnessed first hand the violent events during the last years of the British Mandate.

The story begins when Erin’s best friend, Eliza, the daughter of wealthy Israeli-Jewish parents, is called back to Israel for her National Service and invites Erin along to spend the summer with her and her family. En route, Erin starts to read a diary that she has found that was written by her grandfather in the forties. Moved by his account and the realisation that he wasn’t much older than her when he wrote the diary, Erin retraces his steps in modern day Israel, seeing for herself the hard facts of life for both Jewish and Palestinian communities. But as Len’s story unfolds, Erin finds herself on a journey which takes her deep into the Occupied Territories, the unresolved disputes of the Mandate period – and right to the heart of the current conflict in that troubled land.

Review of Rehearsed Tennessee Williams Reading

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Dotty, an avid theatre goer in London and author of her own blog Oh, for the breath to utter what is like thee!, attended the previously announced Rehearsed Reading of Tennessee Williams’ The Fugitive Kind in which Claire Foy took part on September 15. Here’s what she had to say (excerpt):

This was a gorgeous lump of a play and produced here with levity and sensuousness at a level way beyond a rehearsed reading status.

Claire Foy is like a luminous liquid flowing around the stage and the rapport between Messers Harman and O’Neill was a joy to behold.

The scenes between Claire and Rory seemed much more sexually charged because the actors rarely stood very near each other and had their playtexts on lecterns in front of them. It was all in the delivery and it had me dribbling.

Blissful evening
