TINSEL & TINE

Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) is about discovering what I find pleasing in Film & Food -  My post/commentary are from the perspective of someone who truly reveres good storytelling, and possesses a voracious appetite.

Although I also write about my dining experiences and food events, the blog is primarily film-centric. My writing style weaves together personal anecdotes and observations in conjunction with film reviews, reporting from film festivals and preview film screenings. Not to mention, whenever possible, highlighting the simpatico of food in film!

Tinsel & Tine encourages blog contributors. Please send
your film festival experiences - from big and small film festivals - pictures, short reviews, long reviews, food & film tie-ins, report on the celebrities, the atmosphere etc... Feel free to share your festival coverage during or after the festival.  (Blogging credit only compensation).

Q & A with actress Amy Ryan on her new film directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman - "Jack Goes Boating"


Here's an except of actress Amy Ryan discussing the off-beat character she plays in "Jack Goes Boating" to read full post visit Philadelphia Film Society blog (filmadelphia.org)

Q: How was it playing opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman, while he’s also directing?

AR: To be directed by your leading man.. um… Well, we had the extraordinary experience of rehearsing this movie for two weeks before we shot anything on film… I think it’s just a shift in energy for me, it’s not a director yelling cut, he just says cut.  And then he can whisper something to me after the scene, where other times on set you’ll hear cut and wait for the director to take that dreaded walk towards you as you’re thinking “what’s he gonna say?” Wondering if you messed it up or were on target. So it was truly more intimate.

Q: What do you look for when you’re sent a script?

AR: That I’m not repeating myself. After Gone Baby Gone all the scripts I was offered where drug addicted mothers and it’s like oooh there’s an idea (sarcasm).  So I try to keep making right angle turns. From Gone Baby Gone, I went to The Office. I don’t think I’ll be able to avoid that all the time, because I believe there are only about 8 stories in the world, dressed up in different costumes.  But for me, it’s an instinct, if I start imagining a character, the way they walk and talk… I close the script and later I may be walking down the street and I can’t get them out of my head; it almost like when you meet someone and fall in love or have a crush and literally you can’t stop thinking about them…  But if I’m bored half way through then I know I’m going to be bored on set and that’s never good.
