Description

Ballet 422 is a 2015 documentary by cinematographer and documentarian Jody Lee Lipes, and offers viewers a rare look behind the curtain of the professional world of ballet. The film follows Justin Peck, the 25-year-old choreographer of the New York City Ballet as he strives to create the ballet company's 422nd original piece while also balancing other professional commitments in the ballet world. This film offers an intimate look at Peck's creative process, and has been well received by critics. Not only does the movie provide startling insight into the process that brings an idea from its inception into realization as a ballet show, but it also highlights the commonplace workaday atmosphere that pervades life behind-the-scenes in an industry which is usually enshrouded in glamour. This piece is a must-see for anyone who is thinking of becoming a professional in the ballet world, or for any passionate ballet enthusiast who wants to learn more about what goes on behind the curtain.

2012
Drama
In the year of 1939, the King and Queen of United Kingdom, George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon are visiting New York to seek the help from America in a forthcoming War with Germany. The success of their voyage is totally dependent on negotiation with the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt who has invited the Royals to his residence - Hyde Park on Hudson. Meanwhile, FDR himself is experiencing hard times with domestic policy and low ratings of trust. The situation is even getting worse when Margaret Suckley, a Roosevelt's mistress and distant cousin joins him alongside with his wife and children to ensure the pleasant stay of royal couple during the weekend. This crucial parley is going to turn out to be the fateful pivot point both of the world history and FDR and Margaret relationships. Few people know ins and outs of this historical meeting and Roger Michell's movie, Hyde Park on Hudson, unfolds the truth about it. It showcases lots of funny moments (just imagine facial expression of Royals, when Margaret announces hot dogs as main dish of the lunch), misapprehensions at the edge of fouls and lots of other objectionable situations FDR and Margaret masterly get out from. The right chemistry between the perfectly selected actors and actress make this movie definitely delicious and easy to watch. Franklin D. Roosevelt is portrayed by Bill Murray. Laura Linney plays Margaret Suckley while Olivia Williams plays Eleanor Roosevelt, FRD's wife. The Royal couple is played by Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth and Samuel West as King George VI.
