I’ve heard about the movie ‘Effie Gray,’ so I’m glad to finally see a trailer for it! Dakota Fanning stars as Euphemia “Effie” Gray, who’s married to art critic John Ruskin (portrayed by Greg Wise). Apparently John is unwilling to consummate their marriage, so Effie looks for sexual satisfaction elsewhere. A love triangle in the pre-Raphaelite era!

Typically I get annoyed with romantic comedies: they have promise, but the execution is just, well, silly. It looks like Emma Thompson’s and Pierce Brosnan’s new movie, ‘The Love Punch,’ may actually avoid the pitfalls and be funny, however! Here’s the first trailer, and it’s pretty entertaining. RELATED: Emma Thompson makes quite the sacrifices for her art.

Here are some of the red carpet looks at the Critics’ Choice Awards, which were held last night. There was no one popular look that ruled the red carpet, as you can see from the pictures (click on the thumbnails to enlarge them). Some celebs, like Amy Adams, Christina Applegate, and Jessica Chastain, popped with bright colors. ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ star Emma Thompson covered up her bright red gown with a flowery jacket. LOVE Amy’s hot pink gown! Other celebs, like Sandra Bullock, Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, and Meryl Streep, went with deeper, jewel-tone colors.
There was no shortage of prints, either, from Julia Roberts to Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Melissa McCarthy. Nia Long, Kristen Bell, and Aisha Taylor were chic in black, while Lupita Nyong’o was equally chic in white. One thing that is noticeably different from awards’ shows in years past was the lack of bling. Oprah’s wearing a gorgeous bracelet, but for the most part, no one’s flashing millions of dollars worth of bling. Some of these dresses include some sparkle, but most are pretty subdued. Do you like less flash or do you miss it? Regardless, one thing you can count on with red carpet fashion is that it all recycles!

I’m a HUGE fan of Emma Thompson. She’s an amazing actress and seems so down to earth! My heart broke for her when she and Kenneth Branagh split. Emma’s definitely rebounded, however. She stars in a new movie, ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ with Tom Hanks. E! has a picture of Emma and Tom from the movie. Emma’s hair is permed. The hairstyle required quite the sacrifice, to hear Emma talk about it.
“It was a nightmare. People would bleat in the streets as I went by. I didn’t have sex for six months!”
Hopefully Emma’s current husband, Greg Wise, wasn’t THAT turned off by the hairdo- LOL. ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ is about the making of the classic musical, ‘Mary Poppins.’ I bet it’s a fun movie. Emma and Tom pick good projects, so I’m definitely going to have to check this out.

I never thought I would enjoy a movie about the making of ‘Mary Poppins’, but after seeing this trailer I can’t wait to see this movie! In Saving Mr. Banks, Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as Poppins author P.L. Travers. Hanks has a heck of a time trying to convince Thompson to let him adapt her story to the big screen, while Thompson seems to just want to convey what her story really means to her.
This one definitely looks like it will be a holiday hit! The movie will hit theatres on December 20 and I have a feeling I know what the feel good hit of the holidays will be! Check out the trailer below;
