US director gets political at Marrakech film fest

MARRAKECH: US director James Gray, chairman of this year’s Marrakech film festival, on Monday lambasted his country’s President Donald Trump as an “imbecile.” “It’s embarrassing, I feel very awkward and I feel I have to apologize every two minutes, because... I’m trying to represent the better part of my country not that one that is represented by an imbecile.” US actor Robert De Niro, an outspoken critic of Trump, received a tribute award at the festival on Saturday. He used the occasion to launch a fresh tirade against the president and his “America First” mantra. “Sadly, in my country we...

Izabel Goulart gives us a lesson in Lebanese power dressing

DUBAI: Brazilian model Izabel Goulart was spotted wearing a suave Zuhair Murad suit in London on Monday — and we must say that if this luscious tux is anything to go by, the Lebanese label should be as celebrated for its two-piece ensembles as its coveted ballgowns. Goulart, who is best known as having been a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2005 to 2016, took to Instagram late Monday to show off her power suit, which she wore to a Chopard-hosted event in the British capital. “Off to celebrate the holiday season with @chopard in (an) @zuhairmuradofficial tuxedo,” she wrote on...

Review: Film puts a modern spin on 'Mary, Queen of Scots'

" Mary, Queen of Scots " is an ambitious re-imagining of the Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I saga with modern flourishes and bold performances from Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. But the film, for all its prestige and edginess, its lofty goals and contemporary messages, is not a particularly engrossing experience. It's a shame too, because most of the elements are there. The gorgeous costumes and meticulous settings are breathtaking, and they couldn't have chosen two leads better suited to playing these women, with Ronan as Mary and Robbie as Elizabeth. They just don't come together very well, straddling an...

Good greycious!

It was a late night telephonic interview. That was the only time he could be free. Not really free; that was the time he hits the gym. But Dinesh Mohan was glad to talk, to share the story of his unbelievably true journey. His name might not ring a bell, but his photos would, definitely. The drop-dead gorgeous model is quite familiar for his carved physique, sharp gaze, dashing smile and silver locks and beard. The handsome hunk enjoys a huge fan following, thanks to his irresistible charm and never-say-never attitude that have made him the king of silver foxes!...

Not only the Lonely this season

Holiday season is right around the corner and it brings along with it not only Christmas carols, pretty decorations and plum cakes but a need to be with someone. Or so movies pledge, since time immemorial. It is just not a good time to be single! In a poll of 2,037 people, Mind (a mental health charity) found that one in 10 millennials say they have no one to spend Christmas with, compared to one in 20 older people. Living in a time of quick fixes and easy solutions, we get chatty with city folk to find out how they...

Review: Julia Roberts is unforgettable in 'Ben is Back'

In one of Julia Roberts' many heartbreaking scenes in "Ben is Back" — and they're pretty much all heartbreaking — she lays down the law to her 19-year-old son, a recovering drug addict who's shown up unexpectedly for Christmas. "You have one day," Holly tells Ben with all the authority she can muster. She'll be on him like a hawk, she says. She'll even sleep on his floor. "For 24 hours, you're mine, all mine," she concludes. "Got it?" And there's the heartbreaking part — what Holly has to know deep down, and what Ben surely does despite his obedient...
