Written by and starring some of the leading lights on the UK comedy scene, Love Matters is a season of six stand-alone comedies.
Starting from Thursday 28th March, each week two perfectly paired half-hour films will paint a picture of real romance in the 21st century.
From one night stands to unrequited love, internet dating to long-term relationships, and arranged marriages to dates with fate, the trails and tribulations of love are all laid bare in a rather comical fashion by some of the most exciting and talented writers and actors in the business. Keep your eyes peeled because you’re guaranteed to see a few familiar faces from shows like Hunderby, The It Crowd, Peep Show and many more.
The season kicks off with a double bill featuring 30 And Counting, the tale of 30-something George, who is convinced he’s sent his girlfriend to bat for the other team. He ends up being introduced to internet dating by his best buds and hilarity ensues.
Officially Special follows straight after that, and sees world record adjudicator Jo Pepper trying to figure out how to make her mark on the world, while her boyfriend tries to convince her to settle down…
In the weeks to come we’ll meet Isy Suttie’s Miss Wright, a singing teacher with a passion for a fella who doesn’t even know she exists, and Sarah Solemani’s Aphrodite Fry. A love goddess our Aphrodite is not, and after one guy in particular lets her down she forges a plan to ensure it will never, ever happen again.
Speaking of awkward moments, A Nice Arrangement is full of ‘em, as Satpal tries to navigate the murky waters of an arranged marriage, without telling the love of his life that his mother wants him to marry someone else.
And finally…Kitten, a Blackpool schoolgirl who believes everything she’s told by a fortune teller. When she meets the rather handsome Jake, she’s convinced he’s the man the cards say she’s been waiting for, but will he be into Kitten Chic? You’ll just have to wait and find out.
THE SAPPHIRES- In theaters March 22nd! Visit: thesapphires-movie.com
Inspired by a true story, THE SAPPHIRES follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group The Sapphires entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Tapsell), Gail (Mailman), Julie (Mauboy) and Kay (Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (O’Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. As their manager, Dave books the sisters their first true gig giving them their first taste of stardom, and travels them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops.
From Joel Hopkins, writer/director of the perfect Last Chance Harvey — Love Punch follows a divorced couple scheme to recover the retirement money that was stolen from them. Starring Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan
For the roles of Bones, Frankie, and Face.
Written and directed by Ryan Gosling, HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER weaves elements of fantasy noir, horror and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while Bones, her 18-yr-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.
According to Vulture, the story is based on the 1947 French novel of the same name by Boris Vian. The film centers on a young couple’s romantic relationship. The man ( The Beat That My Heart Skipped‘s Romain Duris) is a spirited, wealthy inventor and his beloved ( Amélie’s Audrey Tautou) is a beautiful young woman who develops a disease that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers. The film marks a reunion of sorts between Duris and Tautou who co-starred as lovers in the 2002 film The Spanish Apartment.
Though the trailer is presented in un-subtitled French (the only English comes with the use of The Lumineer’s “Ho Hey”), the inspired visuals are more than enough to give you an idea of the film. Images of office drones working on a moving assembly line of typewriters, a character reversing time by turning a record backwards and the young couple exiting a wedding seemingly submerged in water and driving away via a transparent limo make for classic Gondry set pieces.
The trailer lists the release date as April 24 in France. A stateside release is expected to follow soon after.

Completely shunning the typical mode of movie marketing where every secret and scene is revealed in the trailer, Shane Carruth has managed to make his follow-up to Primer seem even more mysterious the more he shows of it. Granted, the first teasers looked a bit too faux-poetic to take seriously, but the first full trailer is a wonder to behold.
Even though it shares maddeningly little (you can read a synopsis here), the imagery is stunning, and the selected scenes hint that there’s at least a palm worth of plot to this thing. This may seem like hyperbole, and it might simply be the trailer’s brainwashing talking, but if we praise Malick and Anderson for their abilities to craft this kind of emotional visuals, shouldn’t Carruth’s name be haunting the same halls? Sure, he hasn’t made many films, but if his name weren’t on this (and you knew nothing of it), wouldn’t you have guessed it was Malick’s signature?
Keep that in mind and check it out for yourself.
Upstream Color hits Sundance and the Berlinale before getting a limited release April 5th.
…Providing a welter of ominous images… the trailer is another exercise in atmosphere.
Shane Carruth’s last film was the fantastic, intensely complicated Primer, and Upstream Color looks like a similarly grounded fusion of sci-fi and drama…
…Upstream Color opens in New York on the 5th April

…Nolan has found his next film in the form of Interstellar, written by none other than his brother, Jonathan Nolan.
Very little is known about the script at this point, but THR did have some plot details, which we’ve included below.
“The project involves time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. The script is based on scientific theories developed by a Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech.”
