秋风送爽,也送来了又一波精彩的电影。本月你将能看到布拉德·皮特主演的太空科幻探险片、电影版《唐顿庄园》、蕾妮·齐薇格主演的传奇女性传记片和改编自普利策获奖小说的电影。

The Goldfinch《金翅雀》



Brooklyn director John Crowley and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy screenwriter Peter Straughan have both previously brought huge silver-screen book adaptations into being; but now they’ve taken on an even bigger literary challenge: condensing a nearly-800-page novel into a two-and-a-half-hour coming-of-age drama.

《布鲁克林》的导演约翰·克劳利和《锅匠,裁缝,士兵,间谍》的编剧彼得·斯特劳恩都曾将巨著搬上荧幕,如今他们接受了一个更大的文学挑战:将近800页的一本小说压缩成两个半小时的成长题材电影。

The Goldfinch is adapted from Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer prize-winning bestseller. Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) stars as a man who survives a bombing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and takes a valuable Dutch painting from the wreckage. Nicole Kidman, Jeffrey Wright and Luke Wilson co-star as the people who see him descend into a world of hedonism and forgery.

《金翅雀》改编自唐娜·塔特获得普利策奖的畅销书。安塞尔·埃尔格特(《极盗车神》主演)饰演一名在纽约大都会艺术博物馆一次爆炸事故中幸存下来的男性,他从废墟中拿走了一幅珍贵的荷兰油画。妮可·基德曼、杰弗里·怀特和卢克·威尔逊饰演目睹他在享乐和伪造的世界中日渐堕落的人。

hedonism['hidənɪzəm]: n. 享乐主义,寻欢作乐,纵欲

Downton Abbey《唐顿庄园》



Stand back Sex and The City! Step aside Entourage! The latest TV series to have a cinematic spin-off is Downton Abbey.

《欲望都市》和《明星伙伴》都靠边站!最近又新出了一部电视剧衍生电影,这就是《唐顿庄园》。

Just in case 52 episodes with the Crawley family and their faithful servants left you wanting more, the series’ creator, Julian Fellowes, has written a two-hour follow-up, and most of the original cast have been lured back to their very big house in the country. Among them are Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, and Jim Carter (as Carson the butler), whose wife, Imelda Staunton, joins the roster as the magnificently named Lady Maud Bagshaw.

如果你还没看够克劳利一家和他们家忠仆的52集故事,该剧的制作人朱利安·费罗斯又为两小时的电影续集写了剧本,原剧组人员也基本都回归续集,包括休·博内威利、伊丽莎白·麦戈文、玛吉·史密斯、米歇尔·道克瑞和吉米·卡特(饰演大管家卡森),卡特的妻子艾美达·斯丹顿加盟本片,饰演大名鼎鼎的毛德·巴格肖夫人。

The story, set in 1927, revolves around a visit by King George V (Simon Jones) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James).

这个故事发生在1927年,讲述了英国国王乔治五世(西蒙·琼斯饰演)和玛丽女王(杰拉丁尼·詹姆斯饰演)的一次来访。

Ad Astra《星际探索》



Blasting off from the Venice Film Festival, Ad Astra is a science-fiction adventure written and directed by James Gray, the critics’ favourite who made The Lost City of Z.

在威尼斯电影节上亮相的《星际探索》是詹姆斯·格雷担任编剧和导演的科幻冒险片。曾导演过《迷失Z城》的詹姆斯·格雷是影评人的宠儿。

Like The Lost City, it is a Heart of Darkness-inspired drama about an explorer travelling to dangerous uncharted territory. Brad Pitt plays an astronaut who is bound for Neptune, where his father (Tommy Lee Jones) may be involved in a humanity-threatening experiment.

和《迷失Z城》一样,《星际探索》的灵感也源自《黑暗之心》,讲述一名探险者前往危险未知领域的旅途。布拉德·皮特饰演一名前往海王星的宇航员,他的父亲(汤米·李·琼斯饰演)可能在海王星参与一个威胁人类的试验。

Judy 《朱迪》



It’s 1968, and Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) needs to raise enough money to stop her ex-husband Sidney Luft (Rufus Sewell) gaining full custody of their children. She signs up to a series of nightclub appearances in London, but her addictions to alcohol, pills and unsuitable younger men ensure that audiences never know whether the show will go on.

1968年,朱迪·嘉兰(蕾妮·齐薇格饰演)需要筹集足够的钱来阻止前夫西德尼·鲁夫特(卢夫斯·塞维尔饰演)获得孩子们的完全监护权。她和伦敦的好几个夜总会签了约,但她嗜酒、嗑药、和年轻男人纠缠不清,观众们永远不知道表演是否会进行。

But Judy also feels like Zellweger’s own shot at a comeback. Not only does she have the kind of substantial lead role that wins Oscars, but she does all the singing herself – no small task considering that Garland was one of the 20th Century’s most celebrated vocalists.

但是《朱迪》也是齐薇格东山再起的一次机会。她不仅饰演了获得多项奥斯卡奖的这位传奇女性,而且还自己演唱了片中的所有歌曲——考虑到朱迪·嘉兰是20世纪最著名的歌唱家之一,这还真不是件容易的事儿。

vocalist['vəʊk(ə)lɪst]: n. 歌手;声乐家
