Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Review: Lean on Pete

by Eric Blume

Andrew Haigh,the director of the new filmLean on Pete,is a major,major talent.He pulled a career-best (and Oscar-nominated) performance from Charlotte Rampling in his last film45 Years,made a splash a few years before that with the lovely two-handerWeekend,and his big HBO showLookingwas for my money one of the best gay anythings ever made.

Haigh has a particular talent with actors,and also for establishing moments of quiet power within a story.What's more he trusts that that power is enough.These talents are firmly on display inLean on Pete,the story of 16 year-old Charley (Charlie Plummer) who finds himself completely alone alongside the eponymous,discarded quarterhorse...

A First Trailer for Haigh's "Lean on Pete"

Chrishere.Andrew Haigh's adaptationLean on Petemade it all through the fall festival season with only a few stills to entice us.But now we have a gorgeous new trailer to feast our eyes upon ahead of the film's March release.You might recall that the film's young star Charlie Plummer won the young actor Marcello Mastroianni prize at the Venice Film Festival - looks like we've got one of 2018's major breakthroughs,as he has the plum role of the kidnapped John Getty in Christmas'sAll the Money in the World.

After the impressive triple punch ofWeekend,45 Years,and HBO's short-livedLooking,we are ready to line up to anything Haigh delivers.But this story of a boy escaping home with the horse he tends to seems like an interesting narrative progression for the writer/director,and his keen emotional insights seem to be perfectly calibrated to study a troubled teen.And he looks to deliver some of his most gorgeous visuals

With this andThe Rider,Chloe Zhao's horse-centric festival darling and Indie Spirit nominee,it looks to be a big spring for horses on the indie scene.Insert your "Andrew Hayyyyy"joke here.What do you think of this first trailer?
