Over the last couple of weeks I found quite some new material on last year’s “The Leisure Seeker”, so time for a proper update. While the film didn’t make a lasting impression with theatergoers due to its limited release, it has some kind of second-life since its DVD release. Videos and screencaptures from the making of and an interview with Helen and Donald Sutherland have been added, alongside additional production stills and on-set pictures. Also – I have no idea how this has passed by without any notice – Helen promoted the film’s release on The Today Show in January 2018. A full video and screencaptures from this appearance have been added as well. If you haven’t seen the film yet, it’s highly recommended.

“The Leisure Seeker” has been released on Blu-Ray earlier this month in Germany and various European countries. I’d recommend it to everyone who enjoys seeing two acting greats – or a film that takes its time to tell a story. While it was running a bit long with 2 hours and its pace is off-putting at times, this is a charming, sometimes funny and otherwise deeply moving story. While it might be missing the brilliant magic of “The Straight Story” or the wit of “Little Miss Sunshine”, “The Leisure Seeker” has its heart at the right place, and a truly outstanding acting duo in Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren, whose Golden Globe nomination for the role was fully deserved. Over 1.500 screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery. Please be aware they might contain spoilers.

Helen has had a busy week since Sunday’s Academy Awards. Not only did she pick up L’Oreal’s Women of Worth award in Toronto, Canada – she also continued the promotional tour for “The Leisure Seeker”, which was released in US theaters on Friday. All clips have been added to the video archive while screencaptures can be found in the photo gallery. Enjoy watching!

A whole bunch of new clips have been added to the video archive, all promoting the February 2 release of “Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built” and the early March release of “The Leisure Seeker”. Among the new additions are press junket interviews from the United States and the United Kingdom, a first featurette on “Winchester” and two official clips featuring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke. To promote the film’s release, Helen will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday.

On January 10 and January 12, Helen Mirren has been a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as well as on The Today Show and The View, the latter two with Donald Sutherland. The Ellen interview is funny as always, especially with Helen reminiscing on age, while the interview by Whoopi Goldberg on The View is quite emotional. Be sure to check them out.
