July 30 2018 Drama Movies Newsletter
As regular visitors to Bellaonline already know, we have recently gone through a site update. The new format makes the content easier to navigate on tablets and smartphones and includes more graphics. There have been, however, some issues with the changeover. I've been working with the site administrator to fix any broken links and odd characters that have inserted themselves into the text.
You may want to check out the forum also as there are new posts I've written.
Anthony LaPaglia is the star and executive producer of this week's featured film "Balibo". The movie is set in 1975 when Indonesia invaded and occupied East Timor. Six Australian journalists were murdered while covering the invasion and their killers have never been brought to justice. Following the release of "Balibo" in 2009, the Australian government was motivated to reopen the case. The federal police concluded, however, that there was not enough evidence for an indictment and the case was closed in 2014.
LaPaglia, meanwhile, has joined the cast of "Violet" from writer-director Justine Bateman. She will be making her feature film debut, having already directed two short films. "Violet" stars Olivia Munn as a film executive who discovers that the little voice in her head has been telling her lies. The voice is played by Justin Theroux so I would assume Bateman is going to be exploring gender politics, especially how they play out in Hollywood.
Here's the latest article from the Drama Movies site at BellaOnline.com.
Balibo Film Review
"Balibo" is a tense, intelligent political thriller based on real-life events. The film is also a timely reminder that journalists put their lives on the line in service of the truth. Anthony LaPaglia and Oscar Isaac deliver nuanced, passionate performances.
