The Trailer For Sofia Coppola's 'The Beguiled' Previews A Southern Gothic Horror
Huffington Post - 17 days
Here’s a rare remake worth your excitement: The first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” has arrived.  Coppola gives her own spin on the 1971 drama starring Clint Eastwood, itself an adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s 1966 Southern Gothic novel. Colin Farrell plays a Confederate soldier riding out an injury at an all-girls boarding school in rural Virginia. As he bonds with the sheltered women on the property ― played by the likes of Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, “Pete’s Dragon” star Oona Laurence and “The Nice Guys” breakout Angourie Rice ― things get a little twisted.  “The Beguiled” marks Coppola’s first theatrical release since 2013’s “The Bling Ring.” It opens June 23. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Wild And Sometimes Frightening World Of ‘Punk’d’
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Serena Williams almost started to cry as she drove the Ford SUV through traffic at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour. Her voice shook as she spoke. It was easy to understand why. In front of Williams, an Escalade with two abducted children inside of it ― one of them a baby ― was racing along palm tree-lined Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles at dangerous speeds. Next to Williams was the baby’s mother, who was also the other child’s aunt. “I’m almost crying for your baby,” Williams said to the woman. Overwhelmed by the weight of the situation, the tennis star took one hand off the wheel and held it over her heart. Just minutes before, Williams had been waiting in the Ford SUV for her friend to use the bathroom. She was parked in a strip mall lot, where she had met the woman now seated next to her during the chase. As Serena witnessed in the parking lot, the woman’s teenage nephew had locked himself and her baby in a neighboring Escalade because the supposed aunt wouldn’t bu ...

Kim Burrell: Hiding Behind The Bible Is Cowardice Unworthy Of 'Hidden Figures'
Huffington Post - about 2 months
I recently saw Hidden Figures, about the three African-American women who were crucial in the development of NASA. The movie was smart, entertaining, and touching, without ever veering into manipulative sentimentality. Taraji P. Henson should get a special Oscar for running in high heels, and the soundtrack from (mostly) Pharrell Williams is off-the-hook. One of the strongest themes of the film is that social change often occurs at the personal level. The characters played by Kirsten Dunst and Jim Parsons in particular represent the brand of racism that disguises itself as forbearance — and only through repeated day-to-day exposure working with real black women do they realize they have perhaps been more part of the problem than the solution. I found it an ironic touch that Parsons, an openly gay actor, would be a stand-in for the other hidden figures at NASA — the homosexual men and women who had to actively conceal who they were in order to work there. The three main characters w ...

    More Details Hide Details Derek Elley of Variety described the film as "playful and sporty," saying that this was Dunst's best performance to date: "Believable as both a spoiled ingenue and a lover to two very different men, Dunst endows a potentially lightweight character with considerable depth and sympathy."

    More Details Hide Details The film generated mostly positive reviews, with many critics reserving praise for her performance. In his review, A. O. Scott called her "a terrific comic actress, largely because of her great expressive range, and the nimbleness with which she can shift from anxiety to aggression to genuine hurt." Charles Taylor of Salon noted that "among contemporary teenage actresses, Dunst has become the sunniest imaginable parodist", even though he thought the film had failed to provide her with as good a role as she had either in Dick or in The Virgin Suicides. Jessica Winter from The Village Voice complimented Dunst, stating that her performance was "as sprightly and knowingly daft as her turn in Dick" and commenting that "Dunst provides the only major element of Bring It On that plays as tweaking parody rather than slick, strident, body-slam churlishness." Peter Stack of the San Francisco Chronicle, despite giving the film an unfavorable review, commended Dunst for her willingness "to be as silly and cloyingly agreeable as it takes to get through a slapdash film."
  • 1999
    Age 16

Dunst co-starred in Sofia Coppola's drama film The Virgin Suicides (1999) where she played Lux Lisbon, a troubled teenager. The film was screened as a special presentation at the 43rd San Francisco International Film Festival in 2000.

    Age 14
    Also in 1997, Dunst co-starred in the black comedy film Wag the Dog, opposite Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman.

  • 1996
    Age 13
    From 1996 to 1997, Dunst had a recurring role in the third season of the NBC medical drama ER.
    More Details Hide Details She played Charlie Chiemingo, a child prostitute taken under the guidance of the pediatrician Dr. Doug Ross, played by George Clooney.
  • 1995
    Age 12
    In 1995, Dunst co-starred in the fantasy adventure film Jumanji, loosely based on Chris Van Allsburg's 1981 book of the same name.
    More Details Hide Details The story is about a supernatural and ominous board game which makes animals and other jungle hazards appear upon each roll of the dice.

    In 1995, her mother filed for divorce.
    More Details Hide Details After graduating from Notre Dame in 2000, Dunst continued the acting career that she had begun. As a teenager, she found it difficult to deal with her rising fame, and for a period she blamed her mother for pushing her into acting as a child. However, she later expressed that her mother "always had the best intentions". When asked if she had any regrets about the way she spent her childhood, Dunst said: "Well, it's not a natural way to grow up, but it's the way I grew up and I wouldn't change it. I have my stuff to work out... I don't think anybody can sit around and say, 'My life is more screwed up than yours.' Everybody has their issues." Dunst began her career when she was three years old as a child fashion model in television commercials. She was signed with Ford Models and Elite Model Management.
  • 1994
    Age 11
    Later in 1994, Dunst co-starred in the drama film Little Women opposite Winona Ryder and Claire Danes.
    More Details Hide Details The film received favorable reviews. Critic Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote that the film was the greatest adaptation of the novel and remarked on Dunst's performance, "The perfect contrast to take-charge Jo comes from Kirsten Dunst's scene-stealing Amy, whose vanity and twinkling mischief make so much more sense coming from an 11-year-old vixen than they did from grown-up Joan Bennett in 1933. Ms. Dunst, also scarily effective as the baby bloodsucker of Interview With the Vampire, is a little vamp with a big future."
    The breakthrough role in Dunst's career came in 1994 in the romantic horror film Interview with the Vampire with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, based on Anne Rice's novel, in which she played Claudia, the child vampire who is a surrogate daughter to Cruise and Pitt's characters.
    More Details Hide Details The film received ambivalent reviews, but many film critics complimented Dunst's performance. Roger Ebert commented that Dunst's creation of the child vampire Claudia was one of the "creepier" aspects of the film, and mentioned her ability to convey the impression of great age inside apparent youth. Todd McCarthy in Variety noted that Dunst was "just right" for the family. The film featured a scene in which Dunst shared her first on-screen kiss with Pitt, who was nineteen years older than her. In an interview with Interview magazine, she revealed, while questioned about her kissing scene with Pitt, that kissing him had made her feel uncomfortable: "I thought it was gross, that Brad had cooties. I mean, I was 10." Her performance earned her the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, the Saturn Award for Best Young Actress, and her first Golden Globe Award nomination.
