We asked our resident Tommy Quickly experts at his fan page on Facebook and they reckon Kiran’s character Peggy might have been one of Tommy’s girlfriends. We’ll have to wait and see if this turns out to be the truth!

The Tall Tale of Urchin is a fine example of Andrew Gower’s voice acting work.

Fear the Lord: Trailer Coming Soon?

Writer / director Leoni Tenius (Blessed are They that Fear the Lord) replied to a question to her Instagram post where she shared a “Behind the Scenes” shot from the Fear the Lord set last year.

IMG_20180921_194430

So let’s hope the trailer will be out very soon!

Leoni Tenius is also involved in a new IndieGoGo project called Neext! You can follow Neext! on Facebook and Twitter, and there’s still time to support the crowdfunding as well. Her mini bio includes an excited bit of news for Fear the Lord:

Leoni Tenius is a director from Berlin. Following up to 5 years in the German film industry as an actress she went on to study at the Met Film School London where she graduated with First Honours in Practical Filmmaking. Leoni has won the Zoom Award for the Best International Film for her first short film Kriegskind (Child of War), as well as the Imagining the Imaginarium Competition chaired by Andy Serkis and since then has directed and edited several live action and motion capture short films with Serkis’ The Imaginarium Studios. Her last short [Blessed are They that Fear the Lord] starring BAFTA winner Sophie Kennedy Clark is currently in development for a feature.

We’re really hoping that Fear the Lord can get the funding to be turned into a full feature length film, and that Andrew can reprise his role as James O’Harry.

Rosewater: Theatrical Release UK

rosewater_guardian

On Friday, 8 May 2015, Rosewater had its theatrical release in the UK, which means we’re getting a few more reviews from British TV critics.

7 May 2015

  • Peter Bradshaw for The Guardian

Stewart has made a very credible feature-film debut, as writer/director of this shrewd and heartfelt movie about the ordeal of Tehran-born BBC journalist Maziar Bahari, who was detained without trial, tortured and interrogated as an alleged US spy for 118 days. The case was prominently taken up on The Daily Show. Stewart has created a humane black tragicomedy […]

(Source: The Guardian)

10 May 2015

  • Mark Kermode for The Guardian

Explaining that “the original impetus for the film came from my own feelings of guilt and atonement over what happened to him in Iran”, Stewart offers a powerfully vindicating account of Bahari’s Kafkaesque ordeal. […] Directorially, it’s nuts-and-bolts fare, the imagined apparition of Bahari’s father (Haluk Bilginer) being one of its few stylistic flourishes. But the story is engrossing and enraging, and Stewart takes care to remind us that the real victims of oppressive regimes are those who live with them on a daily basis.

(Source: The Guardian)

13 May 2015Rupert Hawksley for The Telegraph

Based on Bahari’s bestselling memoir, this is a dignified and vital first film from American satirist Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and a vociferous campaigner for the journalist’s release. […]

For all the earnestness, however, this is not po-faced cinema. It is cinema that matters. Some of the encounters between Bahari (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his ignorant torturer, known only as Rosewater (Kim Bodnia), are deliberately comic, which allows Stewart to show us that humanity flickers within even the darkest souls. […] This remarkable film is a tribute to the bravery of foreign correspondents and a love letter to democracy.

(Source: The Telegraph)

Review: Jon Stewart’s Rosewater: Laughing Through the Torture

ROSEWATER, Gael Garcia Bernal, 2014. ©Open Road Films/Courtesy Everett Collection

We got a few more reviews of Rosewater after its theatrical release on 7 November 2014:

13 November 2014

  • Richard Corliss for Time Magazine

[…] Jon Stewart’s movie […] admits a saving sense of humor and proportion to the ordeals of its real-life protagonist. […]

More important, the first time adaptor-director has created a fine film with few surprises but a genuine grasp of the director’s craft. Shot in Jordan by ace indie cinematographer Bobby Bukowski (The Messenger, The Iceman), the movie has a sharp grasp of time and place […]

You may quibble with the international caste of Stewart’s casting: the Mexican García Bernal as Bahari […] That question matters less, given the strong and expertly judged performances all around — especially García Bernal’s nuanced juggling act of anger and anguish, hope and despair.

The virtue of this movie is its commitment to political ambiguity and emotional truth. […] Though not really a comedy, Rosewater is a demonstration of the creed behind The Daily Show: belief in the crucial need for impious wit against entrenched power. The freedom of the press is also the freedom to depress, and to inspire.

(Source: Time.com)

  • Peter Travers for Rolling Stones Magazine

That the movie is as tense and chilling as it is owes much to Stewart’s keen eye for the way humor surfaces even in the dark places. […] Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays Bahari. He’s exceptional in his scenes with the first-rate Kim Bodnia. Kudos to Stewart for making Rosewater more than an earnest plea for journalistic freedom. He makes it personal.

(Source: Rolling Stone Magazine)

  • Manohla Dargis for The New York Times

Among its virtues, “Rosewater,” the directorial debut of Jon Stewart, is an argument for filmmakers to start their trade after they’ve looked beyond the limits of their own horizons. […] Mr. Stewart’s interest in the material is obviously personal, but his movie transcends mere self-interest.

(Source: The New York Times)


ETA:

24 November 2014

  • David Denby for The New Yorker

It also comes across as a satirist’s impassioned bid to promote global sanity. In “Rosewater,” Stewart suggests that a government that will not tolerate humor is capable of the worst tyrannies.

(Source: The New Yorker)

Rosewater: Early Reviews & Trailer

rosewater_a

Here’s a first set of press reviews to Andrew’s new movie Rosewater, in which he plays “Jimmy the Avid Editor” in one scene.

Rosewater stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Maziar Bahari, Kim Bodnia, Haluk Bilginer, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Golshifteh Farahani, Dimitri Leonidas, Claire Foy, Nasser Faris and Amir El-Masry.

It’s never the wrong time to protest tyranny, unjust imprisonment, torture and totalitarian tactics. The Daily Show host Jon Stewart‘s debut as a feature-film director is motivated above all to do just that and does it in a capable, straightforward manner.

(Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

The punishing ordeal of Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari — imprisoned for 118 days on charges of espionage — is brought to the screen with impressive tact and intelligence by writer-director Jon Stewart in “Rosewater,” an alternately somber and darkly funny drama […]

Good luck to Meredith Chambers, Eleanor Moran, Richard Fell and Pat Connor!

The award ceremony will take place on Sunday, 27 May 2012 at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Frankenstein’s Wedding: The Dance

At the end of the live performance of Frankenstein’s Wedding, the cast performed a choreographed dance which also saw Andrew singing the first few lines of Make You Feel My Love. The most spectacular part of the dance however, was the audience joining in with the dance. They had been taught the dance previously and seeing 12,000 people performing it in unison is something to behold.

As an aside, the look on Andrew’s face when he looks out over the crowd at the end is absolutely wonderful!

Frankenstein’s Wedding – Andrew sings ‘Wires’

As part of Frankenstein’s Wedding, Andrew sang Athlete’s Wires (and made every girl there wish she was up there in that plastic box with him!). Thanks to YouTube user symanleedsuk you can watch it again here:

He also sang Snow Patrol’s Make It Go On Forever which is an incredibly beautiful song, he really does it justice. Again thanks to symanleedsuk you can watch it here:

If you like Andrew’s vocals on the Frankenstein’s Wedding songs, you can also hear him in his own band Emerson – pop over to the Emerson page on this site to hear some of their tracks.

A Monster of a Show

frankensteinswedding

The Daily Mail reported about Frankenstein’s Wedding prior to the show’s happening on Saturday, 19 March 2011.

The article mentions Andrew:

Newcomer Andrew Gower, who plays Dr Frankenstein, is darting around the abbey’s passageway, eager to establish the shortest route from his character’s laboratory to the church. “I have a scene in the laboratory followed immediately by one in the church, and the distance between the two is pretty much the entire length of the abbey,” he says.
