“Untogether” Trailer

“Untogether” Trailer

Here is the first trailer for upcoming Untogether, it looks fantastic and we can’t wait!

Article from W Magazine

There’s perhaps no rom-com storyline more beloved by Hollywood than that of a friends-with-benefits relationship that comes crashing down when one or both participants develop feelings for the other. It was done in 1989, with When Harry Met Sally, and twice in 2011, with Friends With Benefits and No Strings Attached; and now, Jamie Dornan and Jemima Kirke are stepping into the doomed setup in Untogether.
The first trailer for the indie film was released on Friday—about a month before its simultaneous theatrical and VOD February 8 release—and depicts, in under two minutes, the initial one-night stand, the subsequent no-strings-attached arrangement, and the eventual confession of actual feelings that are to be expected from the genre. In this particular case, Kirke’s character Andrea appears to be the first to catch feelings, much to the chagrin of Dornan’s Nick, who was wary from the beginning: “You’re not going to get obsessed with me, are you?” he asks after suggesting they continue their fling.

According to the official synopsis, Andrea is “a writing prodigy fully consumed with destructive vices, navigating Los Angeles without a driver’s license or credit card,” while Nick is a doctor and author, famous due to his “heroics in the Middle East.” Rounding out the cast are Kirke’s younger sister Lola, who plays her sister Tara in the film, as well as Ben Mendelsohn, Billy Crystal, Jennifer Grey, and Alice Eve. Tara, a massage therapist, is dating Mendelsohn’s Martin, a washed-up rock star, but soon becomes enchanted by Crystal’s character, a “charismatic rabbi” who invites her to “reconnect with her roots” at his synagogue.

Ahead of Untogether‘s Tribeca Film Festival debut last April, the Kirkes spoke to W about working together onscreen. Jemima described how writer-director Emma Forrest came up with the idea to cast the real-life sisters in her feature film debut after hearing Jemima talk about Lola. “That’s when her eyes lit up. She was like, ‘I’m not going to tell you now, because I’m going to think about this, but I think I have a really good idea,'” she said. Lola added, “I was really excited by the prospect of it, because I think it’s rare that you see people play sisters who actually are sisters.”

“Untogether” has a release date!

Can’t wait to get to see this movie and now we have a date, February 8, 2019 it should begin to be available!

Byron Allen’s Freestyle Digital Media has picked up the North American distribution rights to Untogether, the Emma Forrest directorial debut film starring Jamie Dornan (50 Shades Of Grey), Jemima Kirke (HBO’s Girls), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One), Lola Kirke (Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle), and Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally). Premiering earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, the dramatic comedy will have a day-and-date release on February 8.

Written by Forrest, the story follows Nick (Dornan) and Andrea (Jemima Kirke) whose one nightstand evolves into something more. He’s a doctor and author whose heroics in the Middle East gained him international fame. She is a writing prodigy fully consumed with destructive vices, navigating Los Angeles without a driver’s license or credit card and sharing a home with her sister Tara (Lola Kirke), who is dealing with relationship issues of her own. Tara slowly slips away from her boyfriend Martin (Mendelsohn), who gave up his Australian fame as a rock ‘n’ roll god to be with her. Her way of acting out is to lose herself in religion and seek solace in a charismatic Rabbi (Crystal).

Interview with Alex Cameron, mentions working with Jem

Interview with Alex Cameron, mentions working with Jem

A new interview with Jemima’s boyfriend Alex Cameron, by Variance Magazine, were he mentions working with her and perhaps future collaborations, perhaps one more music video!

Alex Cameron is one of the acts not to be missed when Treasure Island Music Festival returns after a year’s hiatus to a new Bay Area location, on Oct. 12 and 13. Cameron is one of many Australian names on this non-cookie cutter festival bill, late in the season, that also boasts Lord Huron, A$AP Rocky and Jungle. Other established Aussies include Courtney Barnett, Tame Impala, Pond and Hiatus Kaiyote.

Cameron’s star, however, is fast ascending. His music has been singled out by Henry Rollins, shouted out by Russell Crowe and he was invited to Las Vegas by Brandon Flowers to work on The Killers’ last album.

Forced Witness, his stellar second album, picks up from where Jumping The Shark, his 2013 debut, left off—it’s a continued exploration of the male misfit, in his many unsavory guises. In earlier incarnations, hair slicked back, Cameron wore face make-up to age him and suits like a faded lounge singer, calling to mind Nick Cave. In Forced Witness there’s less artifice; he takes a more heartland stance, in blue jeans and white singlet.

Cameron puts under the microscope the ways these men interact with women; on the internet, in song and the quotidienne. Though he never condones their behavior, he paints intimate portraits of these outre men, warts and all. Like biblical parables, sometimes he offers hope and maybe redemption.

Each song offers a separate vignette and it’s only upon repeated listens that you hear the full extent of the toxic masculinity lurking beneath. “Runnin’ Outta Luck,” “Candy May” and “Studmuffin96” are incredibly catchy, couched in the sheen of ‘80s synth-powered melodies with a good measure of St. Elmo’s Fire-era saxophone solos from “business partner” Roy Molloy.

Sydney-born but now residing in Queens, New York, Cameron took a moment to speak to us from his current home about these misfits, his experience writing with Flowers and acting opposite girlfriend Jemima Kirke (Girls) in his music videos.

Jemima interviewed by Playboy

Jemima interviewed by Playboy

A new interesting interview by Playboy magazine was published on September 21st, in which Jemima talks about the risk of being typecast and the new series Maniac.

They also released one more photo from Maniac so that one can be found in the gallery and you can read full interview in the press archive!

If you happened to stroll by Jemima Kirke’s Brooklyn stoop sale in April, one of the items in particular might have caught your eye. Among the piles of vintage clothing and the other knickknacks one typically finds at these de-sheddings, was a stack of unopened copies of Girls DVDs, the show she starred on for six seasons. “People were actually buying them, and nobody realized I was the one selling them,” Kirke tells Playboy. Now, maybe she was just doing some spring-cleaning—because stars, they’re just like us—or maybe it was something more.

Throughout her half-decade run as Jessa Johansson—the deeply flawed but oddly likable millennial on HBO’s Emmy-winning coming-of-age series—the London-born, New York-based actress tried her best to extract herself from her polarizing on-screen persona. “I have had moments like Jessa, for sure,” she told Huffington Post in 2012. “I keep saying this—I just can’t stress this enough—this is an impression for me, in many ways. I know acting is not impersonating, but I’m good with impressions.”

That Kirke tried to make that distinction early on should come as no surprise. If Girls was a window into the no-strings-attached hookup culture of twentysomething New York City, then Jessa was its poster child. But when Kirke agreed to be in her friend Lena Dunham’s pilot in 2011, she was a married 24-year-old who had just given birth to her first daughter. Her days as a rebellious, hard-partying New York scenester—she first went to rehab when she was 19—were firmly behind her.
