CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.
Slideshow: 7-Image Gallery For ‘Knight and Day’ Starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz
CHICAGO – This 7-image slideshow contains all of the official press images for the highly anticipated “Knight and Day,” starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Jordi Molla, and Paul Dano. The film was written by Patrick O’Neill and directed by James Mangold. It will be released on June 23rd, 2010.
Synopsis: “In the action-comedy KNIGHT AND DAY, Tom Cruise is a covert agent and Cameron Diaz is a woman caught between him and those he claims set him up. As their globetrotting adventure erupts into a maze of double-crosses, close escapes, false identities, and head-spinning romantic snafus, they come to realize that all they can count on is each other.
Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises present a Pink Machine / Todd Garner/ Tree/Line Film production, a film by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma), starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight And Day. The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Jordi Molla and Paul Dano. The film is written by Patrick O’Neill. Knight and Day is produced by Cathy Konrad, Steve Pink and Todd Garner; and executive produced by Joe Roth, Arnon Milchan and E. Bennett Walsh.
Mangold reunites with his behind-the-scenes team from Walk the Line and 3:10 To Yuma — director of photography Phedon Papamichael, ASC, editor Michael McCusker, A.C.E., costume designer Arianne Phillips, and production designer Andrew Menzies (the latter collaborating with Mangold only on 3:10 to Yuma) - who bring to life Knight and Day’s sleek action, humor and edgy suspense in an array of spectacular locations. The music is by John Powell, whose many contemporary thrillers include The Bourne trilogy, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Italian Job.”
