“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” Interview: Director Angela Robinson 

Angela Robinson (“D.E.B.S.,” “The L Word,” “True Blood”) wrote and created a beautiful movie that celebrates the intrinsic nature of Wonder Woman. I sat down with Robinson at TIFF for this one-on-one interview about the making of “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.”

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940's. While Marston's feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her 'sexual perversity', he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston's muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research -- while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

“Victoria & Abdul” Movie Review 

“Victoria & Abdul” is getting major Oscar buzz for Dame Judi Dench’s performance. She returns to the role of Queen Victoria she previously played in 1997’s “Mrs. Brown.” So how is the rest of this Stephen Frears-directed production? Take a look at my movie review of “Victoria & Abdul.”

“Victoria and Abdul” Interview: Eddie Izzard 

Eddie Izzard is barely recognizable in his role as Bertie, Prince of Wales aka King Edward VII in Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul.” The actor put on twelve stones (168 pounds) for the role, yet you can feel every bit of empathy and hatred coming out of his pores. A fine performance coupled with a really genuine human being! Check out my interview with Eddie Izzard for “Victoria and Abdul.”

“Victoria and Abdul” Interview: Ali Fazal  

Meet Mr. Abdul himself, Ali Fazal. The actor is much like his screen persona, they’re both bright-eyed, full of wonderment and joie de vivre! Fazal is both giddy and humble to share on-screen moments with the great Judi Dench. Check out my interview with the actor for “Victoria and Abdul.”

I adore Stephen Frears! From “My Beautiful Laundrette” to “Victoria and Abdul,” Frears truly is a great storyteller and a prolific director. I sat down with the director at TIFF for this one-on-one interview on the making of “Victoria and Abdul.”
