Tidbits

 
The year begins very strong in Natland. While we wait for a trailer of Malick’s latest film and the Golden Globes ceremony next Sunday, here we have an abundant ration of tidbits…

-Last Monday, Natalie was honored with an award at the Palm Springs Festival. Tom Hanks was in charge of it, and he delivered to Natalie an awesome introduction speech. Here is a small sample of his kind words to her (thanks to Fanatical610 for the find):

While Hanks introduced Natalie, she was backstage, and a photographer caught a really nice moment …

Planetarium releases in France

 
Planetarium opens in France today. Unfortunately, Rebecca Zlotowski’s latest film, starring Natalie and Lily Rose Depp, hasn´t had a critical reception as good as Jackie, but this movie supposes the opportunity to see our favorite actress in a mysterious and interesting role. To celebrate the release, here we have an interview (in French) of the director in Allocine, and a few instagram photos shared by some people of the crew (including the director herself).

Tidbits

 
We’re due for a bunch of news out of New York so let me get in a few smaller news items first…

– Natalie, being a fan of Italian author, Elena Ferrante, has agreed to read the audiobook of her new picture book, The Beach At Night. It’s a children’s book, but a very dark one, as you will be able to hear with a preview excerpt of Natalie’s reading here.

– Let’s move on to another rave for Jackie, this time from Awards Daily.

Portman fulfills every expectation, then goes beyond, as she nails every precise emotion imaginable in this unimaginable tragedy. She never loses her grasp on Jackie’s renowned poise, refinement and her perfectly inflected voice. And she never shies away from the horrors she is called upon to witness. I cannot praise her enough. She was astonishing. Revealing depths that one could never guess that she possessed, her performance is one for the ages, certain to land her another Oscar nomination.

– Finally, a French friend of the site saw Planetarium and she shared three points:

* It was a lot better than she had expected.
* Natalie’s French was very solid.
* Natalie has rarely looked more beautiful on film.

Planetarium tidbits

The film directed by Rebecca Zlotowski be released in France on November 16. Until then, here we have an interview with Natalie and Lily-Rose Depp, held at the TIFF by Variety:

And here, a couple of nice moments, immortalized in instagram, during its exhibition at both festivals:

Planetarium Tiff Review

 
Here’s another TIFF review! Critics have been a bit hard on this French-Belgium production, and after viewing the film, I can unfortunately see why.
————–



Rebecca Zlotowski is known for pushing boundaries, especially with 2013’s Grand Central. At 36, she has a future ahead of her. With the premise of Planetarium being leaked earlier this year, that film seemed like her future. Two sisters who are mediums being channeled by an early film maker? Sign us up! However, it isn’t once you watch the film that reality sets in. If anything, the first half an hour or so is actually spectacular and even magical. It is, instead, after this segment of the film that you find out how it really is. Planetarium has imaginative concepts, but you would have to lunge yourself to reach where the potential sits from where the film takes you. Planetarium had such promise, but it gets lost amidst its own ambitions.

Planetarium Red Carpet

 
DAZZA update – I am editing Belero’s post to make it a bit more objectively accurate. I think he’s probably right but let’s wait for the real confirmation 🙂

Natalie joined Lily-Rose Depp on the red carpet at Cannes for the Planetarium premiere in Venice, where she looks absolutely radiant.

Will we soon have an announcement to congratulate Natalie & family? 🙂
