How to use film in a sentence?

  1. Isabella Rossellini:

    Mama wrote a letter to my father saying' I want to work with you' and she ended the letter saying' in Italian I can only say ti amo( I love you)' and of course the press used that to say women are sexual predators, in 1949 they made a first film together,' Stromboli', and they fell in love and my mother became pregnant with my brother Roberto before she could obtain a divorce.

  2. Steve Pond:

    If Academy members are passing around articles that are critical of Chris Kyle, which I know some of them are, it has the potential to make some of them a little less likely to vote for the film, but it also could make those who feel the criticisms are unfair to support it even more strongly.

  3. Robert Crane:

    I think what Hollywood did, it’s that it offered up beautiful women coming by the set of ‘Hogan’s’ or meeting him at parties, that’s what Hollywood offered. An endless array of gorgeous women that my dad couldn’t say no to. You can meet beautiful women anywhere, but in the film and TV business, it’s at the forefront.

  4. Leslee Udwin:

    My whole purpose was to give a gift of gratitude to India, to actually praise India, to single India out as a country that was exemplary in its response to this rape, as a country where one could actually see change beginning, the supreme irony is that they are now accusing me of having wanted to point fingers at India, defame India, and it is they who have committed international suicide by banning this film.

  5. Rory Bruer:

    The movie plays well and the uniqueness of the characters is going to drive a conversation that I do believe will help the film in the coming weeks, chappie.
