Now when you tackle a story about a girl who is continually floating, it automatically sounds like a technical nightmare, but in this production it is an utter dream. For the princess, played by Rosalie Craig, they have used the talents of four acrobats and a few wires to create a weightless effect in the most elegant fashion.
From AlunaGeorge, Sights and Disclosure to synth-pop duo Pale, London is producing some of the hottest and most exciting new music talent right now, and joining the party is Devon-born Londoner Rosie Lowe, who is set to release her debut EP.
The London Film Festival opens Wednesday 9 October with the Gala screening of 'Captain Phillips', Paul Greengrass's Hollywood big budget true story of Somali piracy. A live satellite link will simultaneously screen the European Premier to 30 UK towns and cities. That's big budget coverage.
One of the major scoops for the first was the opportunity to host a world premiere of Producing Juliet. This is a new web series written and directed by the award winning Tina Cesa Ward, who also co-produced it...
Maria Aberg has done it again. The way she could make an incredibly tasteful use of balloons and confetti in King John last year, she has now succeeded in creating an enchanted forest of Arden with boots, blankets and beams.
They played out of their skin at Reading, bringing not only massive production of flames, fireworks and a simply beautiful stage set, but they delivered an overwhelmingly powerful performance musically.

A few things will happen while watching Gravity. Your palms will become sweaty, then they may seek comfort at the sides of your face. You'll feel isolated, alone.

Sergei Loznitsa's parable of man's moral place and the search for human good in the catastrophe of war was well received at Cannes 2012 and contrasts with Andrey Zvyagintsev's 2011 tale of the corrupting power of money and class resentment in Putin's modern day Moscow.
Don Jon is a Tony Manero for the dot.com generation, and while his moves tend to be more X-rated than Travolta's 70s and 80s alter ego, I can imagine JGL is going to cause a little night fever around the UK on whatever evening you see it.
