Review: ‘The Wedding Guest’ is a quirky but thin thriller

Freida Pinto wants to meet men the "traditional way".
The 'Slumdog Millionaire actress - who was previously in a relationship with Dev Patel - is currently "very single" and though she enjoys going out on dates, she won't be resorting to apps like Tinder in order to find love.

She told Red magazine: "At the end of the day he's a fellow actor and my friend. I've seen the hard work he's put in, and seeing it pay off [by winning the BAFTA] is the most beautiful thing.

Oscars still lagging in female and minority representation
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 2017 Oscar nominations were a banner year for black nominees both in front of and behind the camera, but other nonwhite groups and women were largely left out of the running. As #OscarsSoWhite creator April Reign said, her hashtag was never about just black actors, but all communities marginalized in Hollywood including Asians, Latinos, and women.
"We still have work to do," said Gil Robertson, president of the African American Film Critics Association.
Dev Patel watched numerous episodes of 'Australian MasterChef' before starring in 'Lion'.
The 26-year-old actor played the Indian-born Australian businessman Saroo Brierley in the Garth Davis-directed drama movie and has revealed the unusual method he used to master his on-screen accent.
Dev - who won the Best Supporting Actor gong at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) in London on Sunday night (12.02.17) - said: "To change the way I sound, that took a good eight months.

Dev Patel sunk his teeth into ‘Lion’ and didn’t let go
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dev Patel knows how special a film like "Lion" is. He's been waiting nearly 8 years, since his breakout in "Slumdog Millionaire," for a role as substantive and soulful as Saroo Brierley, an Indian man who was lost as a 5-year-old, adopted and raised by Australian parents, and who, 25 years later, used Google Earth to retrace his steps to his hometown and his birthmother, not knowing the name of either.
Review: Can you go home again? The lovely ‘Lion’ says yes
There are two ways to view "Lion." One is as a heart-warming tale of love beyond boundaries and the incandescent pull of home. The more cynical view is that it's a two-hour advertisement for the wonders of Google Earth.
Let's not be cynical, shall we? Let's just enjoy this poignant and true story of a man who became separated from his family in India at age 5, was adopted by an Australia couple and then tracked down his family 25 years after going missing.
