The Tribeca Film Festival is now going into its 17th year, and while it still doesn’t command the respect of a Sundance or Cannes or Toronto, it’s certainly been able to find its identity in recent years. This April, the Noomi Rapace-starring “Stockholm” will have its world-premiere at the festival. A definite date has not been set – the festival runs from April 18-29. A new production still featuring Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace has been added to the photo gallery. Many thanks to Marinka for the heads-up.

Stockholm, directed and written by Robert Budreau. Produced by Nicholas Tabarrok, Robert Budreau, Jonathan Bronfman. (Canada, Sweden, USA) – World Premiere. In 1973, an unhinged American outlaw walked into a bank in Sweden demanding millions in cash in exchange for his hostages. The events that followed would capture the attention of the world and ultimately give a name to a new psychological phenomenon: Stockholm syndrome. With Ethan Hawke, Noomi Rapace, Mark Strong, Christopher Heyerdahl, Bea Santos, Thorbjorn Harr.

“Bright” has been released worldwide on December 22 on Netflix, and yes, it was just as disappointing as the critics have written. I didn’t find the acting any bad, it’s what you expect to get from a cop/orcs/elves movie (and you have Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramirez and Noomi Rapace). It was rather a surprisingly, shockingly thin story line. “Bright” feels like a tv pilot with overtime for something that Will Smith should have done 20 years ago. Both Smith and Edgerton are given so little to work with, Noomi was given even less with her dialogue consisting of only a bit of Elvish :-) Her character could have been credited among the stunt people just as well. And yet, I feel like “Bright” could deserve a second watch, there has to be more to Netflix’ biggest foray into motion pictures. There has to be. Screencaptures from the film have been added to the photo gallery, alongside additional pictures from the promotional tours in London, Mumbai and Tokyo – including a fantastic new photoshoot from the time during her Tokyo visit. Many thanks to Marika for all the heads-up. Enjoy the new additions.

Article and pictures courtesy Vogue and Astrid Andersen: When an interview ends with you strapped into Noomi Rapace’s new top-of-the-line Audi as she bounces behind the wheel to top-volume Cardi B, then accelerates up Ladbroke Grove faster than anything out of North Korea, well, it’s been an awesome assignment. And when Vogue was invited to lunch with the Swedish-born actress (the original Lisbeth Salander!) and the Danish-born designer Astrid Andersen, that’s exactly how things ended up. But before we hit the road—Andersen and Rapace up front, singing and whooping as we went full throttle, me in the back, trying not to toss my salad—there was much to discuss. Royal College of Art–trained Andersen founded her menswear label in 2010, and last year started showing womenswear, too. She and Rapace didn’t meet all that long ago, but have since become firm friends. So for Spring 2018, Rapace volunteered to model Andersen’s collection (the women’s, with a sprinkling of men’s) in a shoot masterminded at the actress’s London house. That seemed like a perfect reason to meet, eat, and listen in on these two besties discussing friendship, clothes, first boyfriends, and plenty more besides. What follows is an edited record of a conversation in which, just like that hair-raising drive afterward, Vogue was very much in the back seat.

If you do something that you’re forced into, or you’re eye candy for someone, or you dress for someone else and you don’t feel comfortable, well, you don’t feel empowered and you don’t feel free. If you can’t dance in it, you can’t move in it, you can’t feel your energy and your charisma flowing, that is wrong. But if you wear something that you can move in and that makes you grow, you can come into any room and be like: Boom, here I am! You know, I never thought I would be comfortable in some places. I come from a farm and I come from no money. I didn’t even speak English seven and a half years ago. So I have to go on my intuition all the time. And I think that Astrid is very much the same; you have to go on your gut feeling.

Darius Films has released a first production still and on-set picture from the upcoming thriller “Stockholm”, starring Ethan Hawke, Noomi Rapace and Mark Strong. Both pictures can be found in the photo gallery. Written and directed by Robert Budreau, the film follows the drama chronicled in the New Yorker article “The Bank Drama” by Daniel Lan about the hostages who bonded with their captors and turned against the authorities, giving rise to the psychological phenomenon known as “Stockholm Syndrome.” “Stockholm will offer moviegoers a raw glimpse into intense events that transpired over four decades ago coining a psychological condition that still intrigues the world today,” said Jonathan Kier, Sierra/Affinity’s President of International Sales & Distribution. “With Robert’s creative direction coupled with Ethan and Noomi’s tremendous talents, we are certain audiences around the globe will be captivated by this thrilling true story.”
