Hot Summer Preview: Hot Mamas, Rock Bands & Sordid Lives
Summer is creeping up on us, so as Logo’s big fat looms, I’d take my turn today on forecasting what’s gonna be steamy this summer. My quickie list is entirely subjective, but such is life, right?
And when I say steamy, I really just mean what I’m gonna be salivating over, what I’m eager to see, hear and get giddy with. Get the goods on Julianne Moore, moody bands, party bands, pool parties and cute Spanish actors (like Unax Ugalde — seen above) and more after the jump!
Julianne Moore can do no wrong in my book. And while her new film, , isn’t exactly popcorn-selling summer-movie fare, it’s what I’m excited about. It’s a f*cked up story of a mother (Moore), her gay son, their lovers, a freaky (to put it mildly) Oedipal relationship, murder and crazy-rich Americans jet-setting and humping around Europe in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. The movie is made by Tom Kalin (remember the gay indie Swoon?) and it’s a twisted, gorgeous mess with another fearless turn by Moore. And it opens next week! No long waits!
Savage Grace also boasts a turn by Spanish actor hottie Unax Ugalde as the gay bad-boy lover of Moore’s son, Tony. He’s tan, scruffy and strides around in leather pants. Yay!
And Colin wrote about yesterday, but I too am so inanely excited abut the film version of With Meryl Streep it’s just silly. The movie looks so unabashedly cheesy/corny I plan on loving it. It reads like a big unironic “High School Musical” for adults. What’s not to like?
Finally, Anne Hathaway isn’t really old enough to be considered a Hot Mama, but I do wanna see (out on June 20th). Watching her in that hot white trenchcoat is already doing it for me. And am hot for Steve Carell, so… Ka-ching!
A few nods to bands that I’m gonna love this summer.
Fleet Foxes – These five guys from Seattle are making moody and superbly melodic rock that’s dreamy, smart and perfect for a late afternoon nap in the grass. Kind of like Band of Horses meets Bonny Prince Billy in a misty meadow. And they have songs with names like “Mykonos” or “Blue Ridge Mountains” (where I’m from!) so how can you not like them! Their self-titled release is out on SubPop on June 3rd.
– Their leadoff single “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You” is a rollicking, stomping, splashy dance-fest, perfect for summer spasticness. They’re spending most of the summer bopping around Europe on a tour, with just one Stateside stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 1. Plus, they’re from Jacksonville, FL. Props! Their debut, Partie Traumatic, drops on July 22nd here in the U.S.
Summery Concerts – Living in NYC you can kind of get spoiled with the concert options. You can hear showsin (like Kid Sister & Vampire Weekend – major!), in leafy Prospect Park in Park Slope ( Outdoors! July 9th!) and in Williamsburg at the vast, empty . will rock the joint on June 26th. Yes, Devo (with special guest, Tom Tom Club!) It’s 1982 all over again!
I work for a TV network, but I rarely have enough time to watch stuff. But this summer, I’m pretty excited about the show coming to Logo. (Sorry if that sounds like shameless company-boosting speak.)
Mainly, because the show looks like a scorching summertime punchbowl full of crazy complete with Tammy Wynette-obsessed drag queens, Olivia Newton-John, Rue McClanahan and the deliciously daffy Beth Grant (who you’ll totally know from Six Feet Under, Little Miss Sunshine and Donnie Darko—“I’m starting to doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!”). It begins airing on Logo in July. Bless!!!
Watch the deliciously trashy trailer for Sordid Lives below! Happy Summer!
Unax Ugalde, son of a worker at the Altos Hornos and a housewife, was born in 1978 in Vitoria-Gasteiz. While a student, he had the ambition of becoming a marine scientist and started taking interpretation classes. In order to pay for his studies, he worked in a supermarket where he dressed up as a chocolate ball. He got his very first job in a TV series named Entre dos fuegos for ETB basque television.
In 1999, he left the Basque Autonomous Community to start an acting career in Madrid. Thanks to series like A las once en casa (where he played Coyote, boyfriend of a girl named Lucia), El grupo or Periodistas he achieved certain notoriety in Spain. The Unión de Actores nominated him for the Best Actor Award for El grupo (2000)- in which a Unax played a drug addict who wanted to resume family ties- and Best Supporting Actor for Periodistas (2001), where he was also nominated for Fotogramas de Plata Awards. He completed his work on TV with an appearance in Compañeros, in which he played a robber who dies in a school while trying to flee police.
In 2005, he premiered Queens, in which he went into the skin of a man about to marry his boyfriend (Daniel Hendler) in the Spanish first gay wedding and could not support his castrating mother, who will deliberately lose her dog in order to make impossible a normal life for the couple. In his next film, Alatriste, he played the son of a fellow of Viggo Mortensen who died in Flanders. While recording he received the news that Daniel Brühl was to play Salvador Puig Antich in Salvador, to the detriment of his own candidacy.
He combined the filming of his last two works with the promotion of Shooting Star which led him, among other places, to the Berlin Film Festival and in 2005 to the Festival of Seville.
In 2006, before premiering Alatriste, he filmed with Julianne Moore, Savage Grace, playing one of Tony Bakeland’s lovers. In 2007, he played a young Florentino Ariza in the film adaptation of the book Love in the Time of Cholera. Then he starred in La buena nueva, in which he plays a priest who spends the Spanish Civil War in the navarrese town of Alsasua and who will witness with horror the atrocities being committed in the name of religion. In this movie, Ugalde stars with Guillermo Toledo and fellow Basque actress Barbara Goenaga, among others and is directed by Helena Taberna.
In 2008, Ugalde played the role of Roberto „El Vaquerito“ Rodríguez in Che Part 1: The Argentine, the first part of the two-parts biopic about Ernesto „Che“ Guevara film, Che. The film is an American superproduction inspired about Ernesto „Che“ Guevara’s life during Cuban Revolution and directed by Steven Soderbergh. In 2010, Ugalde filmed three movies: Cefalópodo directed by Rubén Imaz, a Mexican film about overcoming of break-up in a couple; Bon Appétit opera prima was directed by David Pinillos, the film was shot in Zurich (Switzerland) and filmed in English, in addition the film won Goya Award for Best New Director; and finally No controles directed by Borja Cobeaga, Pagafantas`s director.
In 2011, Ugalde premiered two films. The first film is There Be Dragons, the film was directed by Roland Joffé and it is based on Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer’s life, catholic priest and founder of Opus Dei. The film has been the best second of Spanish cinema on its first week-end, the record goes to Torrente 4; the second film is Tequila: Historia de una pasión by Sergio Sánchez Suárez, Ugalde’s second raid in Mexican cinema. A part, Ugalde has shot scenes for a play called Olaguílbe 1808 by Patxi Basabe, in this play there are scenes filmed because they want interaction between watchers and the play. In addition, Ugalde stars in Baztan by Iñaki Elizalbe, Spanish film that’s shooting in Basque. Baztan had its premiere in 60th San Sebastián International Film Festival, the film garnered positive reviews and critical acclaim. Finally, in december Ugalde premiered TV film El asesinato de Carrero Blanco in ETB and 2012 in TVE.
In 2012, Ugalde starred in Dracula, a horror film directed by Dario Argento, shooting in 3D and in English, Ugalde plays Jonathan Harker, one of the main protagonists. Dracula was shown in 65th Cannes Film Festival and the film was greeted with largely mixed reviews from professional film critics. Next year, Ugalde shot two films. The first is Bypass, Ugalde’s second raid in Basque language; the other film is Somos gente honrada. In addition, Ugalde is joined in the cast of 3rd season of Spanish series Gran Reserva.
Handlung von My Big Fat Gay Wedding
Fünf hysterische Mütter, fünf schwule Söhne und fünf Hochzeiten! Spaniens Superdiven als Nuria (Verónica Forqué), Helena (Mercedes Sampietro), Magda (Carmen Maura), Ofelia (Bettiana Blum) und Reyes (Marisa Paredes) und die Elite der Jungschauspieler als deren Söhne Narciso (Paco Leon), Hugo (Gustavo Salmerón), Miguel (Unax Ugaldo), Oscar (Daniel Hendler), Rafa (Raul Garcia) und Jonas (Hugo Silva) auf Freiersfüßen – verrückter geht’s kaum. Ein herzerfrischender, urkomischer, aber auch berührender Film der vorurteilsfrei mit schwulen Klischees umgeht. Alle versuchen, das Wochenende der anstehenden Feier mit Liebe, Sex, Lügen und Bigotterie zu überleben. Der ultimative Film über schwule Hochzeiten! Und über Mütter schwuler Söhne!
Overwrought gay grooms fleeing matriarchal madness
The overstuffed Spanish ensemble comedy “Queens,” about five meddlesome mothers attending a group wedding of gay men, should have been renamed “Divas,” as everyone in this energetic but messy comedy is over-emotive and self-important.
The film’s first reel introduces all of the characters and explains their relationships with one another. Although it takes a few scenes to sort everyone out, the characters are all as vivid as they are vapid. Nuria (Verónica Forqué) is the breathy, oversexed mother of aptly named Narciso (Paco León), who is marrying Hugo (Gustavo Salmerón). Hugo’s mother, Helena (Marcedes Sampietro), is a judge who does not love the fact that her son is gay. In fact, she plans a vacation during the ceremony so as not to have to witness the “spectacle” of 20 gay couples getting married.
Elsewhere, Reyes (Marisa Paredes), a wealthy actress, is distraught over the fact that her son Rafa (Raúl Jiménez) is marrying Jonás (Hugo Silva), the son of her gardener, Jacinto (Luís Homar). Óscar (Daniel Hendler) is marrying Miguel (Unax Ugalde), the son of Magda (Carmen Maura), an hotelier who caters to the pink peso. Óscar’s mother Ofelia (Betiana Blum) arrives in Madrid from Argentina, with her dog, which is not allowed in the hotel.
While the multiple storylines and characters are interconnected, “Queens” actually makes things slightly more difficult by employing a fractured narrative structure that shifts back and forth in time to tell and retell certain storylines from multiple perspectives. Director and co-writer Manuel Gómez Pereira seems to have worked hard to make a story about five women and six men as complicated as possible. What he has not done is made the comedy particularly funny.
One problem is that the film relies on generic mother-in-law stereotypes, the worst of which is Ofelia, the well-meaning mom who causes all kinds of problems for her son, and especially for his lover. Once Ofelia is warned about Miguel’s expensive carpet, it is only moments before her dog pees on it. When Ofelia in turn lays a guilt trip on the boys, she causes a rift to develop between them. Miguel gets so infuriated he allows for the disappearance of Ofelia’s dog, and the antagonism does not subside as the groups seek out the lost and very much loved pet.
The film’s other storylines are not much better. When Hugo’s father questions him about his homosexuality, the gay groom gets inappropriately passionate with Nuria, his future mother-in-law. Likewise, Rafa and Jonás may be comfortable in their relationship, but the effect it has on their parents—who in turn become lovers—threatens to destroy everyone’s happiness.
The filmmakers neglect the opportunity to celebrate the love between mothers and their gay sons, or to examine what marriage and family mean to these people, perhaps because the story has most of the characters meeting each other for the first time. The situations that arise between Hugo and Nuria and Miguel and Ofelia are contrived, unbelievable; it’s hard to invest any emotion in what happens to the couples. The relationship that develops between Jacinto and Reyes, who supposedly have known each other for ages, even if as lady of the manse and gardener seems superficial at best. It is a great moment when Reyes makes a grand, slow motion entrance to the song “Fever,” but such pleasures in “Queens” are fleeting.
The ladies are equally selfish and clueless when it comes to themselves and their sons. Their outrageous behavior is more stupid than shocking, and none of it is funny. When one son reveals a similarity he shares with his mother, the irony fails to amuse; any redemption the characters earn by the film’s end seems forced and foolish. Apparently, the theme of “Queens” is for everyone to get over themselves and embrace the ones they love—whoever they are and however they are related—but is not delivered in particularly palatable fashion.
The film is populated by some magnificent Spanish actresses—Carmen Maura, Marisa Paredes, and Verónica Forqué in particular—but they all seem to be slumming here. The boys are all adorable, but they are given little to do—except in the case of Unax Ugalde, who is saddled with the lamest storyline. It is a shame to see such talent and beauty wasted, but that is the one thing “Queens” does well.
