The new musical film, THE PROM, coming to YES CInema December 4th!

With an all-star cast: Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Keegan Michael-Key, Kerry Washington, Mary Kay Place

 

The Broadway production of “The Prom” was said to be a pure delight and a real crowd-pleaser. The plot revolved around a group of flamboyant, self-obsessed Broadway actors, badly in need of good publicity after a huge flop, who converge on a small, conservative town in Indiana (ahem) to help a high school girl who is being denied the opportunity to take her girlfriend to the prom. It was not only relevant, but also full of old-fashioned high-energy song and dance and lots of laughs with heart.

Producer-director Ryan Murphy scooped up rights for a film version, attaching major names to star like Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman for starters, and quickly getting Netflix (where he has a major producing deal) on board to back it

The film not only matches the stage show for pure entertainment, it tops it. This is a return to musicals the way Hollywood used to regularly turn them out in its Golden Era, and with a name cast at the very height of their games it will put a smile on a lot of faces this season, just as it is needed most. If you ask me it also is a real awards contender, not just at the Golden Globes where it could dominate its Comedy/Musical category, but also at the Oscars where voters just might have had enough of dark stories or molasses-paced indies, and want to see something instead that might light up their spirits in these dreary times.  – from an article by Pete Hammond, Deadline


TOM HANKS STARS in NEWS OF THE WORLD - CHRISTMAS DAY AT YES CINEMA!

 

This Christmas, Universal Pictures and YES Cinema is proud to present Tom Hanks starring in “News of the World,” a moving story written and directed by Paul Greengrass, reuniting for the first time with his star from their 2013 Best Picture nominee Captain Phillips.

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.

In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will.

Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.

News of the World is directed by Greengrass (the Bourne films, United 93) from his screenplay with Luke Davies (Lion), based on the National Book Award finalist and best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles. Also starring Ray McKinnon, Mare Winningham, Elizabeth Marvel.
