Newcomer Talitha Bateman Shines in "So B. It" Movie -- a Heartbreaking Story that Will Leave You Smiling
Huffington Post - 9 months
Talitha Bateman. Tuck that name away in your memory palace. The teenage actor gives a brave, eye-opening performance in So B. It, a poignantly sweet yet funny movie, a tale about love, loss, and reconnecting with what matters most in life -- family and being authentic. Bateman, who was 13 at the time of filming, is a dynamo, and her acting in one money shot when she falls apart bawling from the very depths of her soul will break anyone's hardened heart. So B. It, which is based on author Sarah Weeks' book, premieres at the LA Film Festival on June 7. It's directed by illustrious Stephen Gyllenhaal, and has a sterling veteran cast of performers including Alfre Woodard, John Heard and Cloris Leachman, as well as Jessica Collins, Jacinda Barrett and Dash Mihok. It's a great talent mix that was brought together by casting director Richard Hicks (Zero Dark Thirty, Gravity) to work on the type of "wonderful movie script that doesn't get made much anymore," suggests producer J. To ...

Phil Campbell: Why I'm a Writer (and Not in Politics)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Grassroots, the entertaining film about politics -- yes, it's possible -- is coming to New York this Friday. The day before it arrives, I'll be at The Strand here in New York, reading from my book Grassroots before sitting down with director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer Peggy Rajski to talk about how they adapted the book to film. One topic that I am sure will come up will be how they portrayed me. It should be pretty interesting, especially because Gyllenhaal wants people to think I was a lot better at politics than I really was. It's a nice thought. A more realistic answer is that some people are just not cut out for politics. Some of us just don't have the mindset for it. Here's a story about a car accident to illustrate my point. I was lost in steamy Philadelphia looking for Please Touch, a popular children's museum, with my son in the back seat. We were driving through downtown and I didn't have the faintest clue where we were or where the museum was. I didn't ha ...

Stephen Gyllenhaal: The Robot-Monster in the 2012 Election
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Let's face it. This is going to be a rough election. What's at stake? I'd say, pretty much everything. Back in 1776, our fathers talked about "We the people..." Today we have two kinds of people, the type made of flesh and bone that laugh and cry and then -- thanks to the Supreme Court -- the corporation-kind-of-people. It's like we're living in a science fiction novel, with corporations now legally people -- like a very complex robot/monster. And like in most science fiction, they seem to be winning everywhere. Their CEOs make obscene gobs of money, they change every law to fit their needs, their workers get screwed at every turn, losing pensions, homes, jobs, hope. Not to mention super PACs, millions of dollars to whomever sides with them and, what I want to focus on today -- the ATTACK AD. This is one of their super robot/monster weapons, which we are now co-opting. Now as all avid science fiction readers know -- it's either us or them, so I'm posting this ATTACK ...

Stephen Gyllenhaal: Grassroots, Comedy, and the 2012 Election
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
I'm not sure I need to explain why I'm hoping my comedy about grassroots politics might have an interesting life during this 2012 election cycle of super PACs, super media and super political spin sucking the hope and energy out of what we've been calling democracy for a long time. We've always loved the little guy from Mister Smith Goes to Washington to Norma Rae to... And if the little guy is funny, committed and works hard, well, I'm hoping people will like him even more. I can't claim I was prescient while making the movie, Grassroots. I mean who could have predicted Occupy Wall Street or Romney and Obama's embrace of super PACS? Movies take too long from script to finished print. You have to be lucky. I'm hoping we're lucky. Although I I did suspect that the issue of grassroots might just hit a cord, as the tsunami of super PACS, super media and super political spin has been building quite awhile. It's not really much different than the Hollywood studios' love of ...

Q&A: Maggie Gyllenhaal on 'Hysteria'
Forward - almost 5 years
Image courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics Maggie Gyllenhaal is no stranger to playing strong, confident women. The Academy Award-nominated actress has played roles ranging from a journalist and single mom in “Crazy Heart” to a liberal and outspoken academic in “Mona Lisa Smile.” Her latest film, “Hysteria,” which opens May 18, is set in London during the Victorian era, when various female “afflictions” — melancholia, frigidity and nymphomania among them — were bunched together and labeled “hysteria.” The supposed cause: a disorder of the uterus. The preferred treatment: “manual stimulation” of the womb. In the film, Dr. Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) joins the practice of a “hysteria” specialist, Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce). Granville becomes engaged to the very proper Dalrymple daughter, Emily (Felicity Jones). But what good film is without conflict? Granville falls for Emily’s sister, Charlotte (Gyllenhaal), a firebrand progressive fighter for women’s rights. Gyllenha ...
