via press release

The much anticipated feature film adaptation of Lauren Kate’s worldwide bestselling young adult novel, “Fallen” comes to the big screen with a cast of exciting young stars and directed by award-winning Australian director Scott Hicks.

Starring Addison Timlin (“Stand Up Guys”), Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse”, “The Railway Man”) and Harrison Gilbertson (“Need For Speed”) alongside Joely Richardson (“The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”), Lola Kirke (“Gone Girl”), Sianoa Smit-McPhee (“Hung”), Daisy Head (“Endeavour”), Hermione Corfield (“Maleficent”) and Malachi Kirby (“My Brother the Devil”), “Fallen” is seen through the eyes of Lucinda “Luce” Price, a strong-willed seventeen-year-old living a seemingly ordinary life until she is accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Sent off to the imposing Sword & Cross reform school, Luce finds herself being courted by two young men to whom she feels oddly connected. Isolated and haunted by strange visions, Luce begins to unravel the secrets of her past and discovers the two men are fallen angels, competing for her love for centuries. Luce must choose where her feelings lie, pitting Heaven against Hell in an epic battle over true love.

“I’m delighted to have directed Fallen. I was drawn in by the intriguing premise of Lauren Kate’s story, the powerful array of memorable characters, and the timeless romance between Luce and Daniel. I enjoyed working with a very fine cast, including the exceptionally promising talents of Addison, Jeremy and Harrison, and the remarkable Joely Richardson,” says director Hicks.

Indeed, Lauren Kate was first inspired to write the Fallen novels by the romance in the story of fallen angels giving up their place in heaven for the untested love of human women that appears in Genesis. “As a romantic, I wanted to write a story from point of view of a girl who made that love worthwhile,” she says. “The idea of a love that has cosmic consequences and that addresses deep betrayals and big motivations has always reached me deeply and I’m happy that they reached others through my books. Luce has an obsession with making impossible love possible. She falls in love with Daniel but that love dies, and she’s desperate to break the curse because she believes the love is worth it. Her openness and deep faith in the power of love is her defining characteristic. Luce is lost when we meet her and every day is an obstacle but Daniel is a ray of light even though he acts badly. She makes her world about him. It’s a deep faith in love that’s very admirable.”

It was the battle between the two young rivals for Luce’s affections that also intrigued the director. He says: “Cam and Daniel have that strange mix of being almost brothers in that they’re bound into this story and yet there’s also an intense rivalry between them. They don’t represent good and bad, they’re both fallen angels, so therefore they’re both bad boys and it’s a struggle between them about higher issues in a mythological world. Luce is a pivotal character in that and they both want to assert control over her destiny.”

“Luce and Daniel's story created a global community of fans. I think of this movie as a love letter to them,” concludes author Kate on the film adaptation.

“Fallen” opens November 9 in cinemas nationwide from Pioneer Films.

    I actually read this. So-so lang yung book so hindi ko naman sya priority. Still, not bad so I might watch it kung bored.

    Which part? I've read both Fallen and Torment. Still looking for Passion but I already have copy of part 4, Rapture.

    It isn't an excellent book plot-wise but for teens and those people with twilight hangovers, this is the books and the movie for them.

    ANGELS IN THE MIDST OF A LOVE TRIANGLE IN “FALLEN”
    via press release

    w2iq1v.jpg

    The upcoming supernatural love triangle “Fallen” sees two fallen angels competing for a young woman’s love for centuries. Based on the bestselling book of the same title by Lauren Kate, “Fallen” stars an exciting trio of up and coming talented actors - Addison Timlin (“Stand Up Guys”), Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse”) and Harrison Gilbertson (“Need For Speed”).

    “Fallen” is seen through the eyes of Lucinda ‘Luce’ Price (Timlin), a strong-willed seventeen-year-old living a seemingly ordinary life until she is accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Sent off to the imposing Sword & Cross reform school, Luce finds herself being courted by two young men, Daniel (Irvine) and Cam (Gilbertson) to whom she feels oddly connected. Isolated and haunted by strange visions, Luce begins to unravel the secrets of her past and discovers the two men are fallen angels, competing for her love for centuries. Luce must choose where her feelings lie, pitting Heaven against Hell in an epic battle over true love.

    “I was intrigued by the story,” explains acclaimed Australian director Scott Hicks. “It’s essentially a gothic teen romance that has been going on for a thousand years. I really liked the characters and felt that there was a real possibility of doing something very interesting and which was not just centred around visual effects but was about characters the audience could really care about. And the characters would be complex enough to sustain a series of films. So it was a chance for me to make a film in a genre I hadn’t done before.

    “I also liked the idea of the closed world of the reform school Sword & Cross where no one has cell phones or computers or the accoutrements of modern life,” he goes on. “It meant that the relationships have to be founded on the people themselves and how they interact. I was intrigued by the strange group of youngsters Luce encounters there and how she responds to them - Luce is at a very low point of her life and she has no idea what’s going on and doesn’t understand why the people and situations there feel familiar. We know a great deal more than she does. I found the unravelling of that mystery fascinating.”

    “Unbeknownst to Luce, she and Daniel have been in love for all eternity,” continues Hicks. “It takes a while for her to discover who this strange young man who seems so familiar but who she’s never met before is, and it’s also a journey of discovery for herself too. At same time, the third person in the triangle, Cam, is very eager to engage with her and she finds it very difficult to sort out the puzzle of what’s going on between these people. It’s a very mysterious and romantic story, not one of flowers and hearts, but one of passion and the danger of love and romance and I wanted to focus on that”.

    It was the battle between the two young rivals for Luce’s affections that also intrigued the director. He says: “Cam and Daniel have that strange mix of being almost brothers in that they’re bound into this story and yet there’s also an intense rivalry between them. They don’t represent good and bad, they’re both fallen angels, so therefore they’re both bad boys and it’s a struggle between them about higher issues in a mythological world. Luce is a pivotal character in that and they both want to assert control over her destiny.”

    “Fallen” is now showing in cinemas nationwide from Pioneer Films.

    [JUSTIFY]What if angels walked among us? What if their destinies are tied with yours? The battle between heaven and hell takes on a new face in Fallen, Mayhem Pictures’ newest release based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Kate. One of the more popular books on angel lore that boomed at the turn of the decade, the film promises a mix of supernatural action and adventure with the all too real prospect of fighting for forbidden love.

    Lucinda “Luce” Price (Addison Timlin) has never quite fit in anywhere. Reeling from a recent tragedy, she comes to Sword and Cross Academy, a boarding school for troubled teens. While struggling to fight her inner demons, she makes an unlikely friend in Penn (Lola Kirke), an overenthusiastic student assistant who becomes her companion in getting to know the eclectic mix of students at Sword and Cross. There is the aloof poster boy Daniel (Jeremy Irvine), determined to keep out of Luce’s way. In contrast, the dangerously charming Cam (Harrison Gilbertson) takes a liking to her, revealing more and more of the school’s secrets as they grow closer. Throw in the playful Arriane (Daisy Head), the happy-go-lucky Roland (Malachi Kirby), the vision of perfection that is Gabbe (Hermione Corfield) and the hostile rebel Molly (Sianoa Smit-McPhee) – a crowd that definitely is more than what they appear on the surface. With the guidance of the school librarian Miss Sophia (Joely Richardson), Luce soon discovers the truth about these students and her own destiny as she finds herself in a pivotal position in a war that has been waged since the beginning of time.

    [JUSTIFY]For a film based largely on fantasy, one of the movie’s shortcomings is its mediocre visual effects. It would have been a more engaging film perhaps with a bigger budget, but as it is the special effects appear shoddy and cartoonish at times. The lighting was understandably dark, as it tried to remain faithful to the feel of the book, which described the setting as foggy and having a bit of heaviness to it. It worked well in the some scenes but not in others as we were left squinting at times trying to make out everything that was happening on screen.

    The film was largely faithful to the lore in the books, and story wise they tried to make this a movie that can stand alone while leaving room for a possible sequel. Unfortunately, they tried to fit in a lot of the plot that was spread out in the books into this one film, so a lot of times we are left with a lot of information but very little sense. The last twenty minutes felt particularly rushed as they tried to fit everything in, and the climax leaves the viewers wanting. It was a movie that would have benefitted with another half hour of action, which will make it a manageable two-hour film at least.[/JUSTIFY]

    [CENTER-HIDDEN]30873641706_c90e6f1a5e.jpg[/CENTER-HIDDEN]

    [JUSTIFY]The film’s saving grace is the cast, which is something they can definitely build on if they decide to do a sequel. Physically, they fit the descriptions in the book to a T, and they more than held their own in terms of their performances. The relatively young and less experienced actors and actresses were able to bring their characters to life, and they had natural chemistry with each other that made the story settle in a bit more especially to those unfamiliar with the dynamics in the book. In particular, Addison Timlin and Harrison Gilbertson were effective as Luce and Cam, and it seemed only fitting that they were the ones who flew in with Lauren Kate to promote this movie. Timlin was able to portray the troubled and haunted Luce, always grasping at the things around her and running from shadows of her past while Gilbertson was effortlessly charming as the bad boy Cam, who might just be worth all the trouble he brings with him.

    All in all, Fallen is far from being a perfect film, but it definitely has its strengths, which can be built upon for future runs. A talented and good looking cast, a workable plot and a rich lore to base upon should they try to veer away from the books, this is a franchise with a lot of potential. Who knows, if they gain enough ground with this one we might find ourselves in for a long ride.
    [/JUSTIFY]

    4/10 - lousy director and effect.





    didnt they learn from twilight, slow motion and close up shots are a turnnoff. and, that cockfight in the air with only shoving and no punchings.

    yun lang .... ano iyon, bitin. one short movie. good thing i saw this movie in a cheap moviehouse. sa greenbelt 290p ito.

    although this movie made me appreciate dobly surround with that flying insect.

    finally, finished the novel. the novel was bad. it was dragging.

    back to the movie, it is another bad book movie adaptation. or, this is a good case of read the book first before watching the movie because i had a hard time read probably because i tend to refer to the movie while reading the book. it was shocking on how the director compressed a long novel in very short movie. the novel plot sequence was twisted. they immediately made it clear this is a movie about angels while in the book it started about troubled relationship of young adults.

    the shadows are locust in the book and not a moth although the movie effect of the moth was great especially how they used it with the use of dolby.

    they killed the book climax.

    in the novel, it was Luci was the stalker while in the movie, Daniel was the one chasing her.

    where was the epic battle which ended up in a fog of angel dust? and, where was meatloaf.
