Published

Socialite, author, and reality TV star Paris Hilton has had a long history of romances and relationships. From Nick Carter to Stavros Niarchos III to shipping heir Paris Latsis (Yes, they had the same weird name!), she hasn’t had any trouble getting the attention of men. Though she could always snag a guy, it never seemed to stick.

However, when Paris Hilton met and fell for actor, model, and artist Chris Zylka in 2016, it seemed like she may have finally found the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, Chris is now the ex-fiancé of Paris. So, where did it all go wrong?

The Enola Holmes is all set to debut on Netflix on September 23, 2020, and will showcase a spin-off tale on the well known Sherlock Holmes spy franchise. This iteration features the teenage sister of Sherlock, who has already gained popularity for being a spy. The film is helmed by the Fleabag director Harry Bradbeer who recently sat down for a Zoom interview with PTI and explained how the film has a strong feminist character and storyline.

Enola Holmes director opens up 

The director of the film told PTI that while he was halfway through filming the movie, he realised that he is making a film for ‘Little Fleabags’. He drew a parallel between the two characters of Fleabag and Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola Holmes stating that the younger feminist audience will feel represented in the film, similar to Fleabag. Check out excerpts from his interview below – 

About halfway through the making of Enola Holmes, I thought, ”I”m making this film for little Fleabags”. Many women that came to me after watching Fleabag, said, ”I feel acknowledged, I feel confirmed in who I am”. It brings tears to my eyes, There are girls out there who are going to feel self-accepting through this film because she’s someone who just wants to live her own life. She’s not a particularly selfish person or reckless but well thought. I think it’s very much in that world (feminist stories). I’m very proud of it.

The director also expressed that making Enola Holmes allowed him to have a look at feminism in the early days. The director enjoyed the opportunity to portray and look at the early feminist movement and how it took over the world. Bradbeer believes that the film has brought another dimension of his interest in feminist art.

Lulu Wang on Ron Howard Helming Lang Lang Biopic: “I’m F–king Exhausted”

Published

on

By

On Tuesday the Hollywood Reporter reported that Ron Howard is set to direct a biopic of Chinese classical pianist Lang Lang, based on the musician’s memoir, Journey of a Thousand Miles. Not too long after the project was announced, however, The Farewell’s writer-director, Lulu Wang, weighed in on the news on Twitter, calling into question whether Howard is the right person to tell a story like this. 

“As a classically-trained pianist born in China, I believe it’s impossible to tell Lang Lang’s story without an intimate understanding of Chinese culture + the impact of the Cultural Revolution on artists & intellectuals + the effects of Western imperialism,” she wrote. “Just saying.”

Howard, who is white, is the Oscar-winning director behind films like A Beautiful Mind and Frost/Nixon. Per THR, the biopic will trace Lang Lang’s upbringing in Shenyang, a city in northern China, and the sacrifices his family made so he could become a world-famous musician. Lang Lang is set to executive produce the upcoming biopic alongside Howard and producer Brian Grazer.

Wang added on Twitter that she is not personally interested in directing the film—but still feels that Howard and Grazer are not the right fit for the project. “I just don’t think these are the artists to grapple w/ the cultural specificities of Northeast China where Lang Lang (and my family) are from. Or w/ the cultural aspect of the physical violence in his upbringing.” Wang was born in Beijing and filmed The Farewell, a heartbreaking true story about her grandmother’s cancer diagnosis, in Changchun, the northeast city in China where her grandmother lives. 

Wang also dropped a reference to the 2020 live-action adaptation of Mulan—which, despite having a mostly Chinese cast, had no Chinese artists working behind the scenes in key positions like directing, writing, and cinematography. The Disney film, which earned lackluster reviews, was criticized by some for this lack of inclusion, among other serious production issues—like filming in the province where the Chinese government has forced an estimated 1 million to 2 million Uighur Muslims, a local, oppressed minority, into concentration camps. 

“Have we learned NOTHING from Mulan?” Wang said. “I haven’t said anything because yes representation and many people I love are involved, but I just have to. Just HAVE to. Because 2020 man… and I’m fucking exhausted.”
