Instead, the band reintroduced itself by way of a one-off show at Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium in Dec. The minute-long video was directed by Kristian Mercado and produced by Joanna Shaw and Audrey Ellis Fox who collaborated with the band to bring its vision to life. I respect that he has so many talents — being able to be the rock star, but also a writer, an illustrator, toy designer. He has so much creativity that cross pollinates. And then Kris and I were able to do our own spin on things. Usually with music videos you sort of talk to the band through a label. But this was direct. We were able to pull imagery from what felt like a decade of their music history. The video logged over a million views on YouTube and has spawned a slew of reaction videos, from fans sharing their opinions to deciphering those many Easter eggs in the film. Perry has been dating actor Orlando Bloom for over three years — they became Instagram official on May 20,

I n trying to painstakingly recreate the spirit of a specific genre from a specific moment in time, film-makers often fall into pastiche, focusing so hard on the nuts and bolts that they forget to include any heart. A loving homage can then feel like an exercise in technique, all style and no soul. One day, on the hunt for the latest Thelonious Monk record, saxophonist Bobby Nnamdi Asomugha enters the store and is immediately smitten. He secures a job there and the two flirt over their favourite records, innocently at first but it soon turns into something more. Ashe, a former musician, soundtracks his film with jazz, blues, pop and soul of the time filling almost every scene, and his precise eye leads to a number of hair-raising moments matching song to emotion with great skill. In pre-publicity , former NFL player turned actor-producer Asomugha expressed his desire to see a period film that had black characters experience adversity through circumstance rather than because of their race given how many films, often understandably, show the hardships faced by people of colour during this particular time. Thompson, who has been slightly squandered of late on some bigger, duller movies such as Men in Black: International and Lady and the Tramp, is on fine form here, managing to replicate the charm and style of a 50s matinee lead without her performance ever feeling like an overstudied bit. She radiates on screen, effortlessly switching from funny to vulnerable to feisty when required, the work of an actor in complete command of herself and her surroundings. Asomugha, relatively new to acting with just a few credits to his name, is equally magnetic.
The Photograph, both thoughtful and entertaining, with a pleasurably laid-back vibe, belongs to a class of movie that barely exists anymore on the big screen. The Photograph is really two entwined love stories, one set in the present, the other in the late s. Lakeith Stanfield plays Michael, a reporter for a New York-based magazine. Intrigued by the photograph, Michael sets out to learn more about Christina, and in the process meets her daughter, Mae Issa Rae , a sophisticated museum curator.
