Tribeca Film Review: ‘The Place of No Words’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘The Place of No Words’
You can almost envision a conventional rendering of Mark Webber’s enchanting “The Place of No Words,” the writer-director’s fifth and most ambitiously scoped feature. In that scenario, the magical journey through which a three-year-old grapples with his father’s terminal illness — something he is too young to make sense of in real-world terms — would be adorned with vivid colors and on-the-nose emotions aimed at tear ducts. Conceived through a personal lens, “The Place of No Words” thankfully takes the completely opposite approach. While occasionally wearisome in its fragmented structure (and limited in its commercial appeal), Webber’s film navigates the vast notion of grief gently and with seriousness.

With its modest intentions, “The Place of No Words” loosely brings to mind David Lowery’s similarly experimental “A Ghost Story,” in a good way — which is to say, those who are patient with its deliberate shapelessness will be eventually

‘The Long Song’ Writer Sarah Williams Pens British Family Drama ‘Flesh & Blood’ For ITV
The Long Song writer Sarah Williams has penned family drama Flesh and Blood for British commercial broadcaster ITV.

Williams, who also wrote 2007 Anne Hathaway feature Becoming Jane, penned the story of three adult siblings – Helen, Jake and Natalie – who are thrown into disarray when their recently widowed mother Vivien declares she’s in love with a new man.

The series is produced by Silverprint Pictures, the ITV-backed producer responsible for series including Dark Heart and Vera (pictured).

Flesh and Blood starts when their mother, nearing her 70th birthday, is swept off her feet by retired doctor Mark. Years of secrets, lies, rivalries and betrayals then come to the surface and threaten to blow apart everything they’ve held dear. With their large family home overlooking the Kent coast, their inheritance and the happy memories of their childhood all suddenly threatened by the arrival of Mark, the siblings attempt to find out more about him.

A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 11 Review: Secrets and Lies

A hiatus does the body good. 

The series returned and A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 11 wasted no time jumping back into all of the mystery and intrigue that has people hooked.

That is where the series is at its strongest, and while Maggie's cancer battle was still featured prominently, and Eddie and Delilah still had a couple of moments, the midseason premiere was one of the more well-balanced of the series. All of the characters were featured, including the children.

Here's the thing, it's going to be frustrating if the series goes out of the way to portray Jon as troubled to prop up Delilah. Gary is probably the only person in the universe who thought Jon was a saint. Jon being an imperfect person isn't the issue; the way it could be used to absolve Delilah is where it gets irksome.

Criminal Minds Season 14 Episode 11 Review: Night Lights

  • TVfanatic
The good news was that Matthew Gray Gubler returned from whatever personal project on which he was working.

That meant that Reid was back from his teaching sabbatical to help out on Criminal Minds Season 14 Episode 11.

What does this mean in real terms? Well, Reid being there makes any episode better.

Why? I'd have to say believability. When Reid proclaims something, it just feels right. He's the master of minutia.

It also comes down to a viewer's comfort zone. I'm more likely to accept a conclusion from Reid, Rossi, Jj, and Prentiss because, well, they've put in the time. They're the veteran profilers.

Lewis, Alvez, and Simmons seem perfectly capable, but we haven't been getting to know them for a decade. To me, Lewis feels like a professor, with Alvez and Simmons seeming more like cops. And likely they'll never get the chance to reach veteran-profiler status.
