Netflix releases the first official trailer and key art for Sian Heder's directorial debut »Tallulah«

NetflixNetflix has just dropped the first trailer and poster for Sian Heder's directorial debut »Tallulah«, starring Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Evan Jonigkeit, Zachary Quinto, John Benjamin Hickey and Uzo Aduba, which will become available worldwide on July 29, 2016!

Tallulah, the Netflix original film, was written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), and tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page – Whip It, Inception), who lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively “rescue” a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother. Tammy Blanchard (Into the Woods, Moneyball), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Girls), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife, Manhattan) and Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, The Wiz Live!), also round out the cast.

On June 22, A24 and DirecTV celebrated the Video-On-Demand release of »Into the Forest« with a premiere event held at the ArcLight Hollywood Cinerama Dome in Los Angeles. Among those in attendance were Ellen Page and her co-stars Evan Rachel Wood and Max Minghella as well as a couple of acting colleagues including Niki Koss, Emile Hirsch, Milauna Jackson, Madelaine Petsch, Gabriel Jarret, Moniqua Plante, Carrie Lazar, Maria Bertrand, Lauren Shaw and Meagan Tandy.

During the press junket on the same day, the main cast talked to various members of the press, but only the guys over at We Got This Covered have released their interview so far. MoviePilot.com, in turn, went live with Page and Wood on Facebook to talk about the movie and answer questions submitted by fans. Make sure to check out both videos below!




Update 06/28/2016

Brooklyn Magazine will dedicate the cover story of its upcoming July/August 2016 issue to "one of Hollywood's most private public figures, the majestic Ellen Page." While the print edition will hit newsstands next week, you can already check out the article on the official website which also features a wonderful new photoshoot by Amanda Friedman.

Ellen Page appears on "Chelsea" to discuss Orlando mass shooting / New »Into the Forest« trailer by DirecTV

Ellen Page has joined the slew of celebrities speaking out about the massacre at Orlando's Pulse gay nightclub, which left 49 dead and 53 wounded last Sunday and is considered the worst mass shooting in modern US history. While on Chelsea Handler's self-titled Netflix talk show "Chelsea", the Canadian actress positioned the tragedy as part of a recurring pattern of violence in the LGBTQ community.

"The reality is that violence towards LGBT people is a common thing. Hate crimes towards LGBT people. Extremely anti-gay, anti-bi, anti-trans rhetoric that is constantly creating a poisonous environment which leads to people hating themselves, people being violent towards one another, to bullying, to abuse, and it really needs to stop." Getting emotional and almost tearing-up, she continued: "People are struggling, and they deserve to live freely and love freely and not be afraid."

Netflix - ChelseaNetflix - Chelsea

Chelsea, in turn, urged change in regards to assault weapons that people have easy access to. "Whether you believe in guns or not, whatever we're doing isn't working, so we all have to have the conversation and continue to have the conversation on how to fix this country, and what we can do," the host said. "They should be banned. People argue back and forth on Twitter anytime you make a comment. People say 'What about the Second Amendment?', but these are assault weapons. You shouldn't have to have an assault weapon to defend yourself. At some point, having the Second Amendment shouldn't supersede your right to go out to a dance club and have a good night. You shouldn't have to be armed."

Not everything in Thursday's episode, however, was about the recent Orlando tragedy. Handler was curious about Page's choices in her career to which she revealed, "it's usually a story that inspires me, something I'm thinking a lot about in my life at the time or something that makes me think about something differently, or a character that feels unique to me." With regard to the second season of her VICELAND show »Gaycation« currently filming, the actress stated she was thankful to share the experience of exploring LGBT communities around the world with her best friend Ian Daniel. "I'm so grateful to people around the world that face so much difficulty and struggle, and are willing to share their stories with us."

Other guests on the couch were actress Florence Henderson and Handler's favorite, third-grade teacher Mrs. Schectman. One of the reasons why Ellen was included in the mix was that her own mother is a teacher as well, who she also talked about at the beginning, saying that she never was taught by her mum in school but she knew that she was "an amazing teacher."


Since it is one of EPO's principles to think outside the box, we also would like to inform you that Ellen's good friend and co-owner of the Wooden Monkey restaurant Lil MacPherson has launched a website at www.lilforchange.com for her campaign to be elected mayor of Halifax. Guess who's endorsement was the first up? Even though the majority of you live outside of Nova Scotia and you probably don't know or even care much about the local government and the upcoming October municipal elections, Page's passionate praise is worth checking out in our opinion! Thanks to Wayne for the heads-up!

And finally we are excited to share DirecTV's trailer for »Into the Forest«, featuring brand new scenes from the movie, with you! Furthermore, please be reminded that Patricia Rozema's post-apocalyptic drama will be released on June 23 next week on DirecTV's Video On Demand service, prior to its theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles on July 22!

»Into the Forest« hits theatres in Canada / »Tallulah« makes its international premiere at Sundance London

On the occasion of the theatrical release of »Into the Forest« in Canada on June 3, Ellen Page met up with director Patricia Rozema for some press work in Toronto during the first week of the month. She sat down for interviews with ET Canada, etalk, The National, Space's InnerSpace, Breakfast Television Toronto, Daily Hive, Daily VICE as well as The Watchlist, and made appearances on CBC Radio's "Q" with Shadrach Kabango and the Roz & Mocha Show on KiSS 92.5.

The duo was also present for a Q&A following a special advance screening of the movie held at Cineplex Odeon Varsity Theatre on Wednesday evening. Furthermore, the Canadian Press released an in-depth print article giving insights into how Ellen came across Jean Hegland's novel while being in her native city of Halifax, the bond she developed with her co-star Evan Rachel Wood, and the intense preparation the two leading actresses went through. The latter included, among other things, a strict diet to depict their characters' growing hunger as resources diminish and crisis looms, the limited use of the TV and computer in order to get a feeling of isolation and being deprived of the luxuries of life, as well as learning vital dance moves and basic survival skills like how to skin a boar. Despite her undoubtedly busy schedule, Ellen even found time to record a short video message on LGBT Pride Month for Pride Toronto.


You can read, listen to and watch all the mentioned information in the press archive, audio section and our YouTube playlist!


We are also excited to announce that Rozema's post-apocalyptic drama will be screening at the Filmfest Munich in Germany on June 25 and 27, and will receive its DVD premiere in Sweden on June 27 thanks to Njutafilms! Since the last update, we got our hands on 12 new HQ stills, whereby only a few have been added to the gallery so far. The rest is supposed to be used for the upcoming US release and therefore will be held back until June 23. So stay tuned and make sure to check back on the given day for more beautiful shots of Ellen and her co-stars!

Sundance Film Festival: London

At around the same time as the events occurring in Canada, »Tallulah« made its international premiere at the Sundance London Film Festival on June 2 with director Sian Heder and producer Heather Rae in attendance. Judging by the reviews and reports (see also our summary below), the drama went down very well with the festival crowd as well as with the British critics.

Let us hope this trend continues when Netflix releases Heder's directorial debut on July 29 and that the lovely, down-to-earth, talented and eloquent filmmaker gets the attention, recognition and success she deserves! You can actually take part in this effort by following this link and adding »Tallulah« to your watchlist now (#80093198)! And finally we are very pleased to be the first website to share with you 7 brand new movie stills, courtesy of Netflix!

»Tallulah« - Sundance London Film Festival - Press Reviews
"The three lead performances are uniformly excellent, but Blanchard delivers the standout. The plucky charm of Page’s previous roles translates well into Lu’s impecunious nomad, shunning the care of others until she is ill-equipped to care for someone herself. Similarly, a dream sequence that both Lu and Margo experience feels like a strange atonal choice on Heder’s part, out of step with the rest of her film. But Tallulah is a confident, heartfelt debut that explores the roles and choices of real women, even if those choices are unlikely ones. [...] Similarly, a dream sequence that both Lu and Margo experience feels like a strange atonal choice on Heder’s part, out of step with the rest of her film. But Tallulah is a confident, heartfelt debut that explores the roles and choices of real women, even if those choices are unlikely ones." (7 out of 10) — Josh Franks, BadCantina

"Tallulah is a light-hearted, though also quite deep comedy-drama that involves from the off. There are three truly superb performances – Ellen Page secures her best role since her wonderful turn in Juno, a character who one looks upon both shamefully and with empathy. It’s a superb performance and she’s a joy to watch in every scene, as is the reliable Alison Janney, a character who actually shares a lot with Page’s – just managing to keep everything together at a time when she stands to lose everything. Then there’s Tammy Blanchard’s Carolyn, a character also struggling with her own demons and again a performance worthy of mention from her introduction as the slightly-slutty, confident, provided for ‘real housewife’ of Beverly Hills, to the tormented should we see during the film’s closing scenes. A highlight in the all three actresses’ already gleaming resumes. [...] Tallulah is wonderfully written, directed and acted - in fact debutant feature helmer Sian Heder's writing is exemplary thoughout, her direction solid, and as a debut feature as a whole, this really rather impresses." (4 out of 5) — Paul Heath, The Hollywood News

"Tallulah is written and filmed very much from a female perspective, with a woman director/screenwriter and three fine actresses at the centre of it. Ellen Page is as reliable and engaging as ever, Allison Janney demonstrates yet again that she’s one of the most criminally underrated actresses around and Tammy Blanchard shines in a role that could be over-cooked far too easily: as she delves deeper into the character, she shifts our attitudes from contempt to compassion." (3.5 out of 5.0) — Freda Cooper, MovieMarker

"Page and Janney are both on great form, and it’s a pleasure to see the two of them spar and bond across the film, Tallulah’s free spirit clashing with the older woman’s firmly set habits, taking comfort and security within her life’s rigid rules. Blanchard is a bit more one-note, all wispy voice and woozy smiles before giving way to hysteria, but there’s a nice appearance from Uzo Aduba as a child services worker on the case. If nothing else, it’s pretty delightful to see a film led so much by its women, a set of rounded, complex female characters pushing the men firmly into the wings. Heder’s direction offers a few whimsical indie touches in the film’s occasional floaty dream sequences, but for the most part Tallulah’s feet are firmly on the ground, tackling an outlandish scenario head-on." — Dominic Preston, Candid Magazine

"Carolyn initially appears an intolerable, self-absorbed wreck but Blanchard skilfully reveals her as a more wounded, sympathetic women than first appeared. The interactions between these complex women, as their lives intertwine, are a spectacle to behold and Heder’s calm, flowing direction allows each character space to breathe. Despite the contrivances of the narrative, this is a graceful, emotive, funny exploration of maternal love that is as strong a showcase as any for why we need to address the gender inequality surrounding film directors. [...] A graceful, emotive, funny exploration of maternal love that is as strong a showcase as any for why we need to address the gender inequality surrounding film directors." (4 out of 5) — Luke Channell, HeyUGuys

"Complex character writing weaves in restrained use of flashback and continually reveals new shades of grey in the triptych of women who are all superbly cast. Getting Page and Janney together again pays off hugely – the two have great chemistry in a surrogate mother/daughter relationship that remains distinct from that of Juno. [...] What could have been a run-of-the-mill TV movie achieves gravitas through developed character motivations and performances given room to breathe. Even when indulging in lighter comedic dialogue, Tallulah circles profound truths." (4 out of 5) — Rachel Brook, One Room With A View

"A welcome return to form for Ellen Page, Tallulah is a well-meaning examination of what it takes to be a mother and who should have the right to be a parent. There is a fair amount of hand-wringing too, but the performances make this very watchable." — Cassam Looch, Flickreel Review

"Janney and Page work wonderfully together on screen and both bring grounded and deeply personal performances in their roles. Janney in particular has an interesting plot thread which sees her trying to come to terms with her divorce and newly single life. [...] Unfortunately, despite the brilliant cast, the plot often becomes a lillte too absurd. A big part of this is to do with Page’s character. It feels throughout as though we are supposed to be sympathetic for her kidnapping, but Heder’s script feels like it’s missing just one tiny element to tip us to Tallulah’s side. Without this, at best you feel sorry that she’s gotten to the point of kidnapping, at worst she comes off as a conniving, selfish young girl who has no regard for anyone else as long as she manages to stay out of trouble. [...] Tallulah is an interesting if occasionally absurd story that is helped massively by it’s impressively strong cast. With just a little more time on screen Ellen Page could have catapulted the film to perfection, instead it sits neatly above average and still demands viewing." — Johnny Ellis, Red Carpet News TV

"Page and Janney are both fantastic in their respective roles, and it’s not hard at all to imagine Page being in the awards conversation come the end of the year. It’s another Oscar-worthy performance from Ellen Page, who really helps add the shades of grey to the moral dilemma in which Tallulah finds herself. [...] The film itself, however, has its flaws. There are some great light-hearted moments littered throughout, but these are at least equalled by the number of jokes that don’t land. And while it’s very much grounded in dramatic territory, it still would have been stronger if these moments had been more finely-tuned. [...] Yet it’s a strong film regardless, and one totally worthy of the global platform Netflix is able to give it." (3 out of 5) — Kenji Lloyd, Final Reel

"Heder shows no signs of nerves with her first feature, boldly creating a trio of women who are, initially, prickly at best, slowly fleshing them out to reveal each as altogether more complex and exploring notions of motherhood beyond traditional expectations. [...] Signs of Heder's TV work occasionally poke through, such as the desire to add a romance subplot involving Margo's doorman (Felix Solis) when the film would benefit from a leaner approach. An initial foray into magic realism also feels at odds with the rest of the action, although Heder ultimately stays true to the idea in a way many will find rewarding." — Amber Wilkinson, Eye For Film

"In Tallulah, Sian Heder elicits superb performances from her lead actresses: Allison Janney, Ellen Page and a stunning Tammy Blanchard. Page and Janney have a natural rapport, a mother-daughter chemistry that's funny and touching; even though we know it is built on a lie. Page maintains an appealing quality that allows us to forgive Tallulah’s impulsive and destructive tendencies. Janney lends a heart-rending quality to Margo, a woman reeling from the confusion of losing both her husband and her son. [...] With surprising dashes of magical realism, calm direction and fluid film-making, Sian Heder has crafted a poignant film that's both sad and uplifting - a rueful look at the risks and gains found in our relationships with others and how these can change us. Beautifully acted and sensitively written, Heder's film is a bittersweet pleasure." — R.H. Zelen, /Garbage-file
