Steven Spielberg's new favorite actor closes out 2016 with an even bigger honor than the Oscar he won earlier this years for Bridge of Spies. Variety reports that Mark Rylance has made Queen Elizabeth's New Year's Honors List, and is to be knighted for his significant contributions to the British theatre.

It seems fitting for the actor who played Spielberg's BFG to recieve this honor from the very Queen he teams with in the film to save the children of England from the threat of the nasty giants, and we congratulate him on the honor. We only hope that when the ceremony comes he leave the Frobscottle at home this time.

From everyone here at The Bearded Trio we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.  I hope 2017 is the best year yet for all of you.  Don't be yourself, be a better person than the year before.  As Steven Spielberg puts it:

"All of us every single year, we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives."

Don't be put off by negative people around you and their lost hope.  Be positive and think of the good things in life and hopefully it will reflect on to those who have lost a little bit of that sparkle.  Again quoting Steven Spielberg:

“I've always been very hopeful which I guess isn't strange coming from me. I don't want to call myself an optimist. I want to say that I've always been full of hope. I've never lost that. I have a lot of hope for this country and for the entire world."

Don't stop dreaming and believing in those dreams.  Don't be swayed by others who have lost their dreams, hopefully they will come back to them.  Spielberg tells us:

"You have many years ahead of you to create the dreams that we can't even imagine dreaming. You have done more for the collective unconscious of this planet than you will ever know."

If times get tough then don't look back, keep going.  Eventually you will come out the other side.  George Lucas tells us:

"You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plough right ahead."

"The secret is not to give up hope. It's very hard not to because if you're really doing something worthwhile I think you will be pushed to the brink of hopelessness before you come through the other side."

And at the end of the year if you feel you are a better person or a changed person then share your knowledge that brought you to this point.  Let others learn from your findings and discoveries.  Yoda tells Luke as he dies. He wants Luke to turn into a teacher and keep the culture of the Jedi alive and well. (Episode VI: Return of the Jedi)

"Always pass on what you have learned."

We hope you all enjoy 2017 and it's full of magic.  If all else fails don't forget that there is always a John Williams soundtrack to listen to.  That never fails to put a smile on our faces.

It's been a week to forget for the Fisher family.  With the untimely passing of Carrie Fisher two days ago and today we learn that her mother, Debbie Reynolds also passed away, our thoughts go to their family during these testing times.

Star Wars fans also feel the loss with Carrie Fisher being their princess for over 40 years.  It seems that fans will get to see her as Leia in Star Wars Episode VIII.  Director Rian Jonhnson wrapped up shooting in July and all scenes with Fisher were completed.  Her role is set to be bigger than the few scenes we watched in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Mark Hamill has left this moving tribute to Carrie Fisher who passed away yesterday age 60:

"It's never easy to lose such a vital, irreplaceable member of the family, but this is downright heartbreaking. Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, damn it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away. Determined & tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her & want her to succeed & be happy. She played such a crucial role in my professional & personal life, & both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie. I love you, mh"

Steven Spielberg has responded in a statement to the loss of Carrie Fisher earlier today.  Steven has a cameo on The Blues Brothers which starred Carrie Fisher as well as working (uncredited) on Star Wars:

"I have always stood in awe of Carrie," Spielberg said in a statement. "Her observations always made me laugh and gasp at the same time. She didn't need The Force. She was a force of nature, of loyalty and of friendship. I will miss her very much."

Breaking news.  A spokesman for Carrie Fisher's family has said the actress has died days after suffering a major cardiac arrest on a flight from London to LA.

In a statement released on behalf of Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, spokesman Simon Halls said: "It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8.55 this morning."

"She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers."

Fisher had been on tour promoting her latest book, The Princess Diarist.  A medic who was travelling on the plane administered CPR.  Paramedics then spent a further 15 minutes administering more CPR to Fisher before getting a pulse, The actress was on a ventilator in the UCLA medical centre.

Really sad news and our thoughts are with her family and friends during these difficult times.  We'll update as we get more news.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-38446753

I just want to add that she was an incredibly lovely person.  I met her last year at a comic con and she was so approachable, caring with a naughty streak.  She was my first crush having grown up in the 70's and 80's as a huge Star Wars fan.  Her beauty shown through and will continue to.  Sleep well Princess, may the Force be with you.

LION
Starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, David Wenham and Sunny Pawar
Based on the book "A Long Way Home" by Saroo Brierly
Screenplay by Luke Davies
Directed by Garth Davis

Reviewed by Paul & Patrick Gibbs



 Out of Four


It's almost a shame to write a review for this movie, because it's such an amazing story and so unforgettable that the ideal way to view it is to go in knowing as little as possible. But it's the kind of movie that we love to champion and encourage people not to miss.  So, if that is enough to talk you into giving the movie a chance, stop reading right now and just go see the film today.

For the rest of you: Lion tells the true story of a Saroo, a five-year old Indian boy in 1986, who livesin poverty, but relative happiness, with a  loving family. His mother works in construction, barely making enough for the family to survive, so Saroo and his older brother Guddu take to begging for food and money at the railway station, and Guddu is even able to find sporadic work sweeping the floors of train carriages. One evening, when Guddu goes to ride the train to the city in search of work, Saroo comes along. Saroo is so tired that he collapses onto a seat on the platform. Feeling guilty for taking the younger boy out so late at night, Guddu tells his little brother to wait and promises to be back shortly.

But when Guddu does not return, Saroo becomes impatient and boards an empty carriage, hoping to find his brother. When he can't find Guddu, Saroo falls asleep. He awakes the next morning to find the train travelling across unfamiliar country, and he is trapped inside for hours. When the train finally stops, the young boy is in a strange place thousands of miles from his hometown, and unable to communicate as almost no one around him speaks Hindi.

From here, Saroo is forced to survive the best he can on the streets, narrowly avoiding some truly horrifying experiences.

Eventually, he is adopted and sent to live with a couple in Hobart, Australia (Nicole Kidman and
David Wenham) who eventually adopt a second Indian boy. Saroo is loved in his new home, and when the story picks up 20 years later, Saroo (now played by Dev Patel) is happy young man. He is a student, looking at a career in hotel management, and he has a beautiful girlfriend named Lucy (Rooney Mara.). He has a life that any would envy, and no reason to change it. But when a memory of his brother is triggered at a party, he realizes that the story of his life in India isn't over yet.

Lion will be dismissed by some as a Hollywood feel good movie, and that is entirely their loss. It is an emotional tour de force that not only tugs at the heart strings but forces the viewer to look back on their own life, and to look inward and think about the experiences and people that have made them who they are. Saroo's journey, both physical and emotional, are more gripping than any fictional epic adventure story, and the prize that may or not await him at the end is far greater than any ancient artifact or treasure. This is a story about what it means to be human, to love and to be loved, brotherhood, and duty to family. It is a story of good and evil, of heartbreak and joy, and of profound truth and insight.

Director Garth Davis, in his feature debut, establishes himself as a filmmaker to watch for, deftly handling the performances (including the young children, Sunny Pawar and Abhisek Bharate, who deserve much more attention than they are getting for this film.).  His visual style is nothing groundbreaking but it's skilled and smooth, with a great sense of pacing. He runs the very real danger of losing our interest with the romantic subplot between Patel and Mara (both of whom are quite good, but given the rest of the story it deserves minimal attention), but he manages to provide some charming moments even in the film's most conventional plot thread., and he keeps it short. While Lucy is based on a real person, the desire to insert a romance teeters on being a Hollywood touch, but it's not fair to dismiss it. In order for the full power of the story to be maintained, the audience needs to see that Saroo has every reason to be content where he is in life and not look back, and Mara, talented and engaging actress that she is, provides that very effectively.

Nicole Kidman gives a superb supporting turn as Saroo's adopted mother, hardly a glamorous character but arguably the best role she's been given in years, and the scenes between Kidman and Patel are beautiful and surprisingly subtle. Patel manages to truly step out of the shadow of Slumdog Millionaire for the first time in his career, and the biggest triumph of the film is how much we grow to love these characters. In particular, Saroo's relationships with long lost older brother Guddu, and his troubled adopted brother Mantosh (Divian Ladwa) are riveting and deeply touching. This movie made us cry just talking about it afterwards, to say nothing of the actual viewing, but it never falsely manipulates your emotions. It's both the sincerity at the heart of the story and the strange mix between a life story we can't even imagine going through and the moments that are universal to childhood and growing up that make this one so completely satisfying.

Lion may not be toward the top of your list for the holiday movie season, but it should be. It will stick in your head, and your heart, forever.

FENCES
Starring Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Mykelti Williamson, Jovan Adepo
Screenplay by August Wilson based upon his play
Directed by Denzel Washington

Reviewed by Paul & Patrick Gibbs





Out of Four 


Adapting a stage play for the big screen is a greater challenge than it may seem. Film is inherently a more visual medium than the stage, and at times what takes several minutes of dialogue to say in a play may be better expressed on film through a single image. However, one of the greatest strengths of a great work from either medium is the performances of top quality actors, and Denzel Washington's interpretation of August Wilson's 1985 Pulitzer Prize winner Fences has that part down. Washington has chosen to do very little to "open up" the play for the screen, instead showcasing Wilson's text and a superb cast (himself included) to deliver powerful drama that sometimes feels more like a filmed stage production than a cinematic experience, but is compelling and powerful sometimes because of this approach rather than in spite of it.

Washington stars as Troy Maxson, a gabarge collector in 1950s Pittsburgh, who is embittered by his inability to parlay his early glory in Negro league baseball to a lucrative major league career, due to his being too old by the time the major leagues began accepting black players.  Troy has a larger than life personality and spins tales of encounters with Death and the devil, and occasionally offers glimpses into his troubled childhood and early life. Troy lives with his loving and loyal wife Rose (Viola Davis) and their son Cory (Jovan Adepo), whose success as a high school football player inspires resentment rather than pride from Troy.  Troy and Rose have a loving marriage, but his stubbornness and anger do seem to wear on her.

The early part of the film in particular unfolds as a stage production with little cinematic flourish, though Washington and cinematographer Charlotte Bruss Christensen know how to use the camera, adding a degree of visual interest with beautiful lighting , and they make the bold choice of reserving close ups for when it most dramatically effective, which adds power to those moments but increases the feeling that we're watching a play. But it's a very good play, populated by vivid characters brought to life by an excellent cast. Washington's Troy is a complex figure, at once magnetic in personality and infuriating in his biterness and lack of overt affection for his son, and a second act surprise makes him an even less sympathetic figure. Yet Washington's performance and Wilson's writing never let the character drift from a sense of realism and genuine humanity, and that makes him compelling even when we can't stand him.

Washington is somewhat theatrical, getting the most out of Troy's speeches and storytelling (more Much Ado About Nothing), yet he pulls back enough to dodge the risk of becoming over the top. And Davis has a presence that at least matches that of her co-star, though it's a somewhat more quiet role. Still, Rose's strength and love for her family provides the film with much of its power, and our hearts break along with hers when Troy's choices cause us pain. No one can beat Ms. Davis when it comes to conveying raw, honest emotion, and it's an exquisite performance that deserves to bring her an overdue Oscar. Meanwhile, Jovan Adepo as Cory brings some of the film's most powerful moments, and he is definitely a young actor to watch for in the future.
than once we were reminded of his delightful turn in Kenneth Branagh's

The movie becomes more cinematic in its final act as time begins to pass (but remains so much a play in spirit that the act breaks are obvious even if you've never seen it on stage), and the rather abrupt change in style is a bit jarring. By the last scene, it's very much a play again, but there's no getting around the fact that this material is meant for the stage. Even the metaphor of the fence Troy is building around the house is decidedly a bit of theatre symobolism, brought out overtly in dialogue. Whether the film is too stagey is something that is being widely discussed, but few seem to be accusing Washington of losing the tone and spirit of the play, and the fact that he does have such a strong handle on the play itself makes it work. It's no Frost/Nixon, but it's a more successful transition to film than Doubt, which tried to over compensate for it's talky script with sudden fits of over the top camera work.

While it may fall short of being a great film, August Wilson's Fences is a great work of art, and Denzel Washington gives what should be looked at as a stellar production of that play if nothing else.
Because at its heart, whether it really belongs on the screen or just he stage,  Fences is a powerful work that is compelling, disturbing and very moving, and it's more than deserving of your time.

Carrie Fisher has had a major heart attack and went into cardiac arrest minutes before the end of the London to LA flight that she was on.

Her brother Todd said she was in intensive care in Los Angeles:

"If everyone could just pray for her that would be good," he told Entertainment Tonight. "The doctors are doing their thing and we don't want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently."

Fisher had been on tour promoting her latest book, The Princess Diarist.  A medic who was travelling on the plane administered CPR.  Paramedics then spent a further 15 minutes administering more CPR to Fisher before getting a pulse, TMZ reported. The actress was on a ventilator in the UCLA medical centre.

From everyone here at The Bearded Trio, Our thoughts are with you Princess.  Keep fighting.

Here's a timeline of the unfortunate event that was posted on Reddit earlier today:

13:03 PST: YouTuber Anna Akana and her boyfriend comedian Brad Gage tweeted that Fisher stopped breathing for approximately 10 minutes on their flight from London to Los Angeles. They were seated in front of Fisher in first class.
13:13 PST: TMZ is reporting Fisher had a 'massive heart attack' 15 minutes prior to landing. A medical professional on the flight administered CPR until the plane reached the gate at LAX where paramedics took over care.
14:30 PST: LA Times is reporting that Fisher is in 'critical condition' at a hospital following 'full cardiac arrest.'
14:45 PST: TMZ is reporting Fisher is currently at UCLA Medical Center on a ventilator. Paramedics worked on her for 15 minutes after landing before they were able to get a pulse.
15:48 PST: AP is reporting that Fisher is 'out of emergency'
and in stable condition. See Below
16:29 PST: ABC is reporting that Fisher is in an intensive care unit.
17:55 PST: Variety is reporting that Fisher is in intensive care and NOT stable.
It should be noted these reports are from her family and not her doctors.
