West Wing alum Martin Sheen has joined the cast of Grace and Frankie, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda’s new Netflix series. The half-hour single-camera comedy stars Tomlin — President Bartlet’s former executive assistant— and Fonda as rivals who are shocked to find out that their husbands have fallen in love and intend to marry. Sheen will […]
Speaking to Hollywood Life, the soon-to-be 21 years old (his birthday is September 16) actor detailed how he got into the spirit of his ghostly character. “He’s this electric guitarist, and I’ve always wanted an excuse to really start jamming out on the electric guitar,” the actor said. “As soon as I got the script, […]
This documentary, which won an Oscar, tells the story of a Chinese billionaire who opened a factory in a former General Motors plant and hired 2,000 people. It was billed as ‘early days of hope and optimism give way to setbacks as high-tech China clashes with working-class America’.

Boris Johnson needs all the help he can get from the Royal Family this time. Downing Street has made the Union the priority. The reason that the Brexit negotiations are stuck firmly on fish is that the Scots (to whom the industry is worth about £600m a year) must see the benefits of leaving the […]
The trouble with Cargo is that it gets too bogged down by a self-imposed responsibility to break its audience in. There’s a sense that Kadav is pulling her punches so as to not alienate viewers, whereas she should’ve just thrown them in the deep end and relied on them to swim up to the surface. […]
As fun as the film is, it can’t help but come across as a wasted opportunity in this regard. Singh’s screenplay sets the stage for subversion, but concludes rather clumsily.
