A Family Affair: Brougher Does Some Marital Maneuvering in Piercing and Personal Drama

Chronicling the implosion of a Catskills couple in micro details, Hilary Brougher returns to unhappiness, malaise and restlessness with her fourth feature film. Featuring a robust Talia Balsam, this family affair (Brougher enlists actual household members), offers sharp dialogue, and a strong sense of place which makes South Mountain a mature and memorable essay on marital endpoints and endgame.

Minutes into the feature, Edgar’s (Scott Cohen) secret lover skypes him to live-stream the birth of their new child. It’s an explosive opening to a small but thunderous drama, as our protagonist Lila (Balsam) reacts to this news in shocking fashion.…

Film Review: ‘South Mountain’

Film Review: ‘South Mountain’
South Mountain” joins the company of “Gloria Bell” and “Diane” as yet another 2019 drama intimately attuned to the literal and emotional plight of a middle-aged woman. In the case of Hilary Brougher’s incisive feature, the female in question is Lila (Talia Balsam), whose quiet life in upstate New York is destabilized by a continuing series of abandonments. A snapshot of major and minor upheavals, and the rocky means by which people move forward from them, it’s a showcase for Balsam’s superb lead turn, and — following its premiere at SXSW earlier this year, and spotlight selection screening at BAMcinemaFEst — an accomplished if minor indie facing a tough marketplace.

At an afternoon cookout with breast-cancer-stricken friend Gigi (Andrus Nichols) and her kids Charlotte (Violet Rea) and Jake (Guthrie Mass), Lila appears subtly troubled when screenwriter husband Edgar (Scott Cohen) chooses to take a work call in private. Her fears are well-founded,

The Fix: Season One Ratings

ABC hasn't debuted a lot of new dramas during the 2018-19 television season. A Million Little Things did well enough to earn a second season renewal, but while Whiskey Cavalier is still pretty new, it hasn't taken the Nielsen ratings by storm. Now the Alphabet Network has introduced The Fix TV show, from Oj Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark, along with Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain -- the longtime writing duo who got their TV start on Joss Whedon's Angel. Does it have the right mix to bring in viewers and score an invite to return? Will The Fix be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. **Status update below.

Marcia Clark Co-Created ‘The Fix’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

  • Deadline
ABC has cancelled legal drama The Fix after a short first season. The drama series, from ex-O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark, Liz Craft, Sarah Fain, Mandeville TV and ABC Studios, was co-written by the former L.A. County deputy District Attorney.

The show centered on Maya Travis (Robin Tunney), an L.A. D.A. who suffers a devastating defeat when prosecuting an A-list actor for double murder — sound familiar?

With her stellar high-profile career derailed, Travis leaves the City of Angels for a quieter life in Washington. Eight years later, when this same celebrity is under suspicion for killing another girlfriend, Maya heads back to Los Angeles and the District Attorney’s office for another swing at achieving the justice she felt was denied before.

SXSW 2019: Global Highlights and Familiar Faces

South MountainIn my last dispatch from Austin I pinpointed the Visions section as a shortcut to South by Southwest’s generally more adventurous programming, if only to facilitate sifting through a number of arcane plot summaries. High-profile acts are bound to the festival thanks to tradition, release date timing, and in some cases city loyalty (think Richard Linklater’s Boyhood and Terrence Malick’s Song to Song; both were shot in Austin and both ultimately premiered at SXSW). It would seem that some worthy but inconspicuous titles could easily fall between the cracks, though pioneers like Barry Jenkins prove otherwise. This year’s Global section I found particularly fertile, with titles ranging from X&Y, artist Anna Oddell’s experimental film inquisition of public personas and gender roles, to Marlén Viñayo’s Cachada: The Opportunity, a documentary about a group of working-class Salvadoran women that stage a performative re-enactment of their traumatic life stories.

The Fix Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

With the help of real-life attorney and author, Marcia Clark, The Fix Season 1 Episode 1 takes on the case of the century and adds just enough fictional twists to keep us guessing.

For those of us who lived through the Oj Simpson case, the similarities are strikingly obvious. Instead of a famed football player, we have a movie star and swap out the dead wife and boyfriend for a dead wife and girlfriend.

We keep the by the book female Ada and charismatic defense attorney but there's no mention of a low-speed chase on the 405...yet.

All jokes and comparisons aside, The Fix is a compelling murder mystery and legal show with a stellar cast.

Robin Tunney (The Mentalist) plays Maya Travis, the Ada who is swamped by guilt after movie star and possible double murderer, Sevvy Johnson walks free.

Yes, The Fix Is Inspired by Marcia Clark's Own Experiences, but It's Definitely Fiction

Yes, The Fix Is Inspired by Marcia Clark's Own Experiences, but It's Definitely Fiction
You may only know Marcia Clark as the lead prosecutor for the 1994 O. J. Simpson murder trial (a role played by Sarah Paulson in The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story), but in the past 25 years, Clark has proven herself to be much more than just a talented lawyer. Since resigning from the District Attorney's office after the Simpson trial and leaving trial practice behind, Clark has written two crime fiction series - the Rachel Knight and the Samantha Brinkman novels - as well as the nonfiction book Without a Doubt with Teresa Carpenter about the Simpson case. She has also made several TV appearances, including her role as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and host for Marcia Clark Investigates the First 48 on A&E.

Now Clark is combining all of her talents for ABC's new legal drama, The Fix, which she cocreated and cowrites alongside writer-producers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain.

The Fix Cast Previews ABC's O.J.-Like Drama, Promises Killer Reveal (Video)

ABC’s The Fix takes a big ol’ cue from the trial of century, which is no surprise since former Los Angeles Dda Marcia Clark serves as a co-writer and executive producer. But at what point does art cease imitating fiction?

Premiering Monday at 10/9c, The Fix stars Robin Tunney (The Mentalist) as Maya Travis, an L.A. district attorney who suffers a devastating defeat after unsuccessfully prosecuting A-list movie star Severen “Sevvy” Johnson (Lost‘s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) for the double murder of his wife and her (female) friend.

‘South Mountain’ Review: Talia Balsam Is Astounding in Elegant Hippy Midlife Crisis Story — SXSW

‘South Mountain’ Review: Talia Balsam Is Astounding in Elegant Hippy Midlife Crisis Story — SXSW
After the melodramatic setup of its first act, “South Mountain” almost takes a violent turn. Faced with the devastating decision by her husband Edgar (Scott Cohen) to leave her after decades of marriage, Lila (Talia Balsam) acts on an angry impulse and nearly causes irreparable harm. But director Hilary Brougher’s wise, understated screenplay undercuts the tension with a practical response, as if to prove that the movie needs no special gimmick to infuse its complex scenario with purpose. The characters are deep enough to do the heavy lifting.

Brougher’s first feature since 2006’s “Stephanie Daley” is a tender, intimate, and blatantly personal work that wears its lo-fi narrative with pride. Grounded in mature dialogue and the quiet moments in between, the movie centers on a tumultuous summer in which middle-aged Catskills resident and community college teacher Lila finds her utopian hippy lifestyle thrown into upheaval when her husband
