Howard's End


Favorite actress series | Emma Thompson: [On acting and appearance] “Acting simply cannot be about how you look. It would be very difficult to make a film where you have to be beautiful in every shot. You have to put so much effort into it; you have to hold your head at particular angles, put the light in a certain way and I don`t like acting like that. I like to act unconscious of how I look.” - Emma Thompson 

anonymous asked:

Does Steve ever yell at YOU about not taking risks?

friday has politely provided an audio transcript, since i felt it would be the most effective way to answer this question.

S: Bucky, I can’t believe you went after that giant squid alone like that! You could’ve died!

B: Wouldn’t be the first time–

S: How could you be so reckless?!

B; –probably wouldn’t be the last. I’m just following your fine example, Stevie. 

S: I’m being serious, Buck! I can’t believe you did that!

B: And I couldn’t believe you were dumb enough to go after that MegaSharkaphant on your own in central park last week, but you did!

S: You and the chainsaw-hands robot! Two weeks ago!

B: That was last month, Mr. I-Can-Handle-This-Alien-Bugdog-Swarm-On-My-Own, and I had backup!

S: Then the time with the sorcerer and the statue of President Washington!


Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen, Tracy Ullman to Star in 'Howards End' Miniseries
‘Manchester by the Sea’ filmmaker Kenneth Lonergan is writing the script

Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen, and Tracy Ullman are taking up residence in Howards End.

The trio have been cast in the BBC’s four-part limited series based on the classic E.M. Forster novel. Starz is also joining as co-producer, per an announcement Wednesday.

Manchester by the Sea filmmaker Kenneth Lonergan is writing the miniseries, which will explore the changing landscape of social and class divisions in turn-of-the-century England through the prism of three families: the intellectual and idealistic Schlegels, the wealthy Wilcoxes from the world of business, and the working-class Basts.

Atwell (Agent Carter) will play Margaret Schlegel, Macfadyen (Ripper Street) will portray Henry Wilcox, and Ullman (The Tracey Ullman Show) will play Aunt Juley Mund.

Hettie Macdonald (White Girl) is directing.

Published in 1910, Howards End was previously adapted to the big screen in 1992, with a cast including Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, Helena Bonham Carter, and Emma Thompson (who won the Oscar for best actress).

The Howards End limited series will film in and around London. The hourlong episodes will air on BBC One in the U.K. and Starz in the U.S.

Away she hurried, not beautiful, not supremely brilliant, but filled with something that took the place of both qualities–something best described as a profound vivacity, a continual and sincere response to all that she encountered in her path through life.
—  E. M. Forster, from Howard’s End
