Well, that's some really nice casting and I don't remember when was the last time we've seen Emma Thompson and Russell Tovey on BBC. They will join Rory Kinnear in YEARS AND YEARS a unique and ambitious six-part limited series charting one family surviving the future, their co production with HBO and French Canal +. As Britain is rocked by unstable political, economic and technological advances, we follow the Lyons family as their complex lives converge on one crucial night in 2019. Then, over the next 15 years, the twists and turns of everyday life are explored as we find out if this ordinary family could ever change the world.
YEARS AND YEARS

IS NEW JANE AUSTEN'S 'EMMA'?
Anya Taylor Joy will return to costume drama
Our second piece of news for today goes a bit more back in time: The Miniaturist star Anya Taylor Joy will lead new EMMA movie based on Jane Austen novel. Autumn de Wilde will direct the period set movie which follows  Emma Woodhouse, a congenial young lady who delights in meddling in other people's affairs by match making. She is perpetually trying to unite men and women who are utterly wrong for each other. She often tries to find a suitor for her best friend but fails because the suitors usually fall for herself. Despite her interest in romance, Emma is clueless about her own feelings and is not considering her own happiness in love!

  1. Both dystopian and utopian societies are bad. So far, they've only been imaginary, but slowly and gradually the dystopian society, characterized by dysfunctioning takes over.(Utopian is too perfect to exist; people are not perfect beings).

    Anyway, the saga of the Lions family makes us curious.
    (By the way, judging by the photo, the bleu-vert color of the dress perfectly suits Emma Thompson's complexion).
