I’ve updated the gallery with Blu-ray quality screen captures of Rooney’s performance in The Secret Scripture, where she plays Roseanne ‘Rose’ Clear/McNulty, a young Irish woman who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital after being labelled a nymphomaniac and later accused of killing her baby. Although beautifully shot, I think this film will be quickly forgotten amongst her other work, but Rooney turns in yet another memorable performance (and her accent is very good). Enjoy!
Courtesy of the films Australian distributor, I’ve uploaded some beautiful new stills of Rooney as the title character in Mary Magdalene. Be sure to take a look.
Ahead of its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday (Jan 19), the first official trailer and poster for Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot have been released – giving us just a small glimpse at Rooney’s character, Annu. I’ve also added captures from the trailer and the film’s official poster to the gallery.
Christmas is here, which means there’s really no better time to revisit Rooney’s incredible performance in Carol. Not only this is my favorite role of Rooney’s – it’s also a movie I can revisit again and again, there’s just so much I take away from each viewing. If you love it half as much as I do, then you’ll really enjoy this update as well. I’ve updated the gallery with Blu-ray screen captures of the film itself, the bonus features and also a whole bunch of hi-resolution posters, stills and behind the scenes photos. Enjoy!
The first trailer for Mary Magdalene has been released, and it’s a pretty good one. If you haven’t seen it already, you can view it here. Below are two beautiful stills that have been added to the gallery, and the official synopsis for the film courtesy of Film4.
Set in the Holy Land in the first century C.E., a young woman leaves her small fishing village and traditional family behind to join a radical new social movement. At its head is a charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, who promises that the world is changing. Mary is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the day. As the notoriety of the group spread and more are drawn to follow Jesus’ inspirational message, Mary’s spiritual journey places her at the heart of a story that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.
