Done over at Showtime, it will be based on a novel by Thomas Mallon. FELLOW TRAVELERS will be an eight part love story and political thriller, chronicling the volatile romance of two very different men who meet in the shadow of McCarthy-era Washington. Bomer will play handsome, charismatic Hawkins Fuller, who maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the scenes career in politics. Hawkins avoids emotional entanglements, until he meets Tim Laughlin, a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants,” initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, Hawk and Tim cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.
JANE AUSTEN'S PERSUASION
GETS NETFLIX STREAM DATE
Netflix has finally announced that July 15th will be the launch date for their new movie adaptation of Jane Austen's PERSUASION and they've celebrated that with a couple of new photos from the costume drama starring Dakota Johnson as Anne Elliot, Cosmo Jarvis as Captain Wentworth and Henry Golding as Mr Elliot, with Richard E. Grant also in the cast.Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth - the dashing one she let get away - crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances! PERSUASION was the last novel that Austen managed to finish before she kicked the bucket. If you remember, Sanditon, airing currently in its second season on PBS Masterpiece with not much success, is based on an Austen book which she did not managed to finish.
NIGHT SKY SERIES TRAILER
PORTAL TO ANOTHER WORLD
The series starts May 20th on Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video has published first trailer for their new eight part series NIGHT SKY which starts May 20th and, spanning space and time, follows Irene and Franklin (J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek), a couple who, years ago, discovered a chamber that leads inexplicably to a strange, deserted planet. They’ve carefully guarded their secret ever since, but when an enigmatic young man (Chai Hansen) enters their lives, the Yorks’ quiet existence quickly is upended — and the chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could have imagined.
Matt Bomer is a treat :-))ReplyDelete
Of the most delicious kind indeed.Delete
I do love me some Jane Austen. While this doesn't look like the best rendition, I'm all in. :)ReplyDelete
It is very woke.Delete
Reason enough not to watch it!Delete
I will, sadly, probably give it a go, because I find Golding terribly hot.Delete
Don't you sometimes wish you could find a portal into a different world? I'm about over this one.ReplyDelete
