'How I Met Your Mother' star Josh Radnor revisits his college years -- and his college campus -- in new film 'Liberal Arts'
When actor Josh Radnor visited his alma mater in spring 2010, he was struck with a realization that hits many 30-somethings returning to their colleges – that the current students walking paths and studying in the same halls he had about 15 years prior looked so young.
“It was just this startling moment when I realized that I was nearly twice as old as the students there,” Radnor said of visiting Kenyon College to screen his directorial debut, happythankyoumoreplease. “It was really strange because my memories of college are so vivid. I felt like I was just there yesterday, and suddenly I was looking at these students saying, ‘We weren’t this young when we were here in school.’”
The How I Met Your Mother star then took that sentiment and turned it into an audience favorite film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Liberal Arts, Radnor’s second directorial endeavor, premiered at the Utah festival in January and began rolling out in theaters this weekend. (You can watch the trailer here.)
Liberal Arts, which Radnor also wrote and stars in, was shot at Kenyon College and in its surrounding village of Gambier, Ohio. Making the film gave Radnor the opportunity to both revisit his alma mater for the summer 2011 shoot (where the film crew stayed in student housing and ate in the dining hall, and current students filled several roles in the production and as extras) and also to delve into themes of nostalgia and change and what happens next after four years of a liberal arts education.

Kristen Stewart’s not the only would-be fairy tale heroine out there with a steely gaze and chutzpah to spare.
Stewart swept aside her pouty Twilight image with a hefty sword as a rebel in Snow White and the Huntsman, but there may be room for other actresses to leap into the franchise, even if Stewart does return for a Huntsman sequel.
Still, sweeping aside a Hollywood Reporter story claiming Stewart was being dropped from any sequels, Universal Co-Chairman Donna Langley said in a statement on Wednesday, “We are extremely proud of Snow White and the Huntsman and we’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise. Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false.”
Even with Stewart in the mix, a sequel could include other asskicking female roles in a Snow White-centric Huntsman follow-up or another potential spinoff revolving around costar Chris Hemsworth as the mega-blonde, strapping Huntsman. Maybe he’ll take on Sleeping Beauty next? Regardless, there are a number of young actresses just waiting to pick up the sword/bow-and-arrow/other archaic weapon of choice.
Here are a few we think could take a mighty swing: READ FULL STORY
Perhaps it should have been called Peace, Love & Clothing Optional? Jane Fonda’s latest offering Peace, Love & Misunderstanding finds the Oscar-winning ’60s icon going back to her roots as Grace, a matriarch who never quite moved past her hippie dippy heyday. Grace’s high-strung daughter (Catherine Keener) returns home with her kids (Elizabeth Olsen, Nat Wolff) in tow, setting the stage for a buzz-killing culture clash.
In this exclusive behind-the scenes featurette, Fonda and her on-screen family talk about the project alongside director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) and co-stars Chace Crawford and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Oh yeah, and then there’s that naked dude…. Check it out below. READ FULL STORY
Bridesmaids and Alice in Wonderland star Matt Lucas has signed on to costar in the dark erotic thriller Therese.
Set in 17th century France, director Charlie Stratton’s adaptation of the Emile Zola novel and play Thérèse Raquin follows the title character (Elizabeth Olsen), who is stuck in a loveless marriage with her sickly first cousin (Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton). The union was arranged under the watchful eye of her oppressive aunt, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange). When Therese enters an affair with her husband’s friend Laurent (Drive‘s Oscar Isaac), it plunges everyone’s lives into a tragic downward spiral, and the illicit couple conspire to kill Therese’s husband.
Lucas will play Olivier, a policeman who, along with his inspector father, regularly calls upon the Raquin family. The film begins production in mid-May.
Lucas’ first major dramatic role, the gonzo ensemble drama Small Apartments, premiered last month at SXSW. He’s also set to play the drag queen Divine in Michael Winterbottom’s The King of Soho, about famed London strip-club entrepreneur Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan).
Two-time Oscar winner and American Horror Story’s Jessica Lange will return to the big screen alongside Elizabeth Olsen in Charlie Stratton’s remake of Emile Zola’s erotic thriller, Therese Raquin. Lange replaces Glenn Close as Madam Raquin, the overbearing aunt to Olsen’s Therese, who is having an affair with her bland husband’s (Tom Felton) best friend (Oscar Isaacs). No release date is set.

Elizabeth Olsen is on screen for almost the entire 88 minutes of Silent House, the new horror movie that plays out in real time without any obvious cuts or editing. As Lisa Schwarzbaum noted in her review, Olsen is the perfect actress for the part: She has one of those placid, blank-canvas faces that registers every note of fear, and she’s a member of an elite club of actresses who somehow still manage to look gorgeous while crying hysterically. (Current Club President: Natalie Portman.) READ FULL STORY
Elizabeth Olsen had a breakout 2011, with a critically acclaimed role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, and she’s got a jam-packed schedule of upcoming films: A May-December romance with Ted Mosby, a movie where Harry Potter plays Allen Ginsberg, and an inevitable costarring role with Dakota Fanning.
But first up in theaters is Silent House, an intriguing horror remake about a young girl visiting her family’s lake house, which comes under attack from unseen forces. The twist: Like the original Uruguayan film, Silent House is told entirely in real-time, which means the film replicates the one-take aesthetic of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope. You can get a little flavor for the film from EW’s exclusive clip, which finds Olsen awkwardly welcoming a neighborhood girl. “You don’t remember me, do you?” says the neighborhood girl, sounding a little bit like a renegade demon-twin from The Shining. “We used to play together.” Watch the clip: READ FULL STORY
