Anyway, thought it was beautifully acted by all: notable the boy who played Luke for me & such a sensitive performance from Rafe Spall. 😊

Agree with this assessment of Black Mirror - that it's comic satire or melancholic sci-fi. Latter works way better
Unreasonably excited about the upcoming Black Mirror Christmas special…

‘One Day’ Movies (PG-13, 1:47) The director Lone Scherfig (“An Education”) chronicles the not-quite courtship of an almost-couple — Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess — who meet as university students on July 15, 1988, and are revisited on that date in subsequent years, as they make their way through careers, relationships and other challenges. The story, based on a novel by David Nicholls, ultimately plunges into maudlin nonsense, but along the way there are some very fine moments, thanks to Ms. Scherfig’s offbeat pacing and the work of a supporting cast that includes Romola Garai, Patricia Clarkson and Rafe Spall.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz play Betrayal takes $17.5m in 14 weeks Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz's revival of Betrayal has taken $17.5 million (£10.7m) in just 14 weeks. The new Broadway production of Harold Pinter's classic play was met with mixed reviews but was hugely popular due to the presence of the married actors. Betrayal opened on October 1, before closing on Sunday (January 5). Top-price tickets went for $275 (£167) and $499 (£304). Also starring Rafe Spall, the play became Broadway's second most successful production in 2013. Nora Ephron's play Lucky Guy, starring Tom Hanks, topped the list with takings of just under $23m (£14m). Directed by Mike Nichols, Betrayal tells the story of a wife who has an affair with her husband's best friend. It also set the record for highest-grossing non-musical in a single week in Broadway history over the Christmas period, earning $1.44m (£0.8m) for the week ending December 29. Pinter's 1978 play was inspired by his affair with BBC television presenter J ...
SAN FRANCISCO: THE FIRST 100 DAYS - DAY 63 It doesn't dawn on me how little I've gotten out of the house these days...until we actually GET OUT. Bear rented a Zipcar again, so we could run errands at the neighborhood Walgreens (read: more DRUGGGZZZ), and we bought dinner in from Wendy's, to make catching a movie easier before he had to go to bed, (which he is in right now). We saw a cute little sci-fi romcom from Ireland called EARTHBOUND, with Rafe Spall and David Morrissey. (Yes, AGAIN with the David Morrissey). A lot of Americans probably thought he popped out of 'nowhere' when he appeared as the Governor on THE WALKING DEAD, but Dave's been a busy guy 'across the pond' for quite a while now. I keep waiting for him to eventually pop up on GAME OF THRONES. It would be something to see him have a mini-reunion of sorts with his BLITZ co-star Aidan Gillen. What's on tap for tomorrow? Making appointments, and maybe just putting out feelers to the job recruiter who called. Not getting my hopes up, but we ...

'Life of Pi' is a 2012 American 3D live-action computer-animated adventure drama film based on Yann Martel's 2001 novel of the same name. Directed by Ang Lee, the film's adapted screenplay was written by David Magee, and it stars Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Rafe Spall, Gérard Depardieu, Tabu, and Adil Hussain. The storyline revolves around an Indian man named Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, living in Canada and telling a novelist about his life story and how he survives a shipwreck in which his family dies at 16, and is stranded in the Pacific Ocean on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. The film had its worldwide premiere as the opening film of the 50th New York Film Festival at both the Walter Reade Theater and Alice Tully Hall in New York City on September 28, 2012. Life of Pi emerged as a critical and commercial success, earning over $609 million worldwide. It was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards which included the Best Picture – Drama and the Best Director and won the Golden Glo ...

I just finished watching the film "I Give It A Year"- a British comedy. Two people marry hastily after only knowing each other for a short period of time, and discover rather immediately that they are ill-fated. Minnie Driver is hilarious. Simon Baker is adorable. Cast also includes Rose Byrne (Damages), Rafe Spall, and Anna Faris. *Disclaimer: Dan Razer's writing is a little colorful in some scenes. If you get offended easily, this one isn't for you.

Betrayal: Ghastly and dull. Tired and beaten up story of marital infidelity, (not surprising as it's a rehash of 1978 Harold Pinter play) saved only from entertainment flatline by the delicious Daniel Craig, and the standup performance of Rafe Spall ... Feeling a little betrayed myself!!

Monday 23 Dec. Yesterday, we'd got to the hotel so early, there were no rooms ready to check in to. We'd expected this, left our bags with the Bell Captain (the guys that organise the porters and looking after stored luggage.no idea why they are called this) and headed out to wander around before lunch with The Cousins. I couldn't believe how warm it was yesterday. Christmas carollers were singing "We're Having A Heatwave". People were in t shirts. I half expected to see sunbathers. Shame, as I wanted a light, romantic dusting of snow gently falling. The nearest I got to experiencing delicate white flakes swirling in the air was standing beside a guy with bad dandruff as we waited to cross the street. We headed to Time Square just to see the lights etc. It was heaving. We weren't after cheap theatre tickets...thank God. The line (yep, I already speak the lingo) was of Biblical proportions for the discount ticket office. (Dawn Hart: we passed the theatre where Rafe Spall is appearing. I left a note at the ...

Saw BETRAYAL tonight on Broadway with Daniel Craig, Rachel Weiz, and Rafe Spall. I scored last minute tix on Stubhub and only had to pay $30 for each instead of the $104 they charge at the box office!
Got to see Daniel Craig, his wife Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall perform 'Betrayal' today. Fantastic show!
Stephen Merchant os bloody hilarious in I give it a year...and rafe spall and Simon Baker are HOT!!
Saw Betrayal last night on Broadway. Big disappointment. Review in New Yorker Magazine nailed it. 90 uninspiring minutes for a ridiculous ticket price except when Rafe Spall was on stage. Huge talent. Craig and Weisz totally miscast and 100% dull. Never thought Mike Nichols could direct a show that was so "mailed in."
NYC:Theater: Betrayal. The Squeeze and I went to see this brilliant Pinter play. As with great plays, it spurred heated discussion. There's love, passion, guilt, lies, secrets, power plays and more going on. But, it's all very stiff upper lip British well-done by Daniel (James Bond) Craig, Rachael Weisz and Rafe Spall (who walks away with the show). But these characters are hard to like. We had a drink at MOMA afterward, and there was a holiday party made up of a large group of very well-dressed 20-somethings. We figured ivy educated associates of a big law firm or young investment bankers--think American Psycho. I'm sure some of them are very likeable...after they step out of their Zegna or Prada armor. But I digress. The play moves backward in time, effectively using projections to note the years, like mine did (to the consternation of some) but in the other direction. Apparently, great minds think alike but in different directions--think Newton v Einstein v Bohr. But here, Einstein's time reversal ...
I saw Craig and Weisz in "Betrayal" last night at the Barrymore. Daniel Craig has wonderful stage presence. I'd rather see Rachel in film. Rafe Spall was also good.
Just back from hours of walking! Time for a little rest before watching Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and distant relative Rafe Spall on Broadway!! Very excited :)
I can't believe I forgot to rave about Pinter's "Betrayal" I saw on Broadway last weekend. The rawest version I've seen yet, which had something to do with Daniel Craig and wife Rachel Weisz sharing the stage, together with an excellent Rafe Spall. Mike Nichols directed. It was pretty much a sure-fire terrific 90 minutes of theater.
Today's your last chance to bid to meet & see Daniel Craig, Rafe Spall, Ian McKellen and Joanna Christie on Broadway
660 MOVIE FOR 2013: "LIFE OF PI" (2012) *ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITES! Now playing "Life of Pi" - Directed by Ang Lee starring Suraj Sharma, Irfan Khan, Tabu, Rafe Spall and Gerard Depardieu. 4 Academy Award® winner including Best Director: Ang Lee** & Best Cinematography and Nominated for 7 including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Score and Best Picture. "I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go. But what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye. I was never able to thank my father for all I learned from him. To tell him, without his lessons I would never have survived. I know Richard Parker's a tiger but I wish I had said, "It's over. We survived. Thank you for saving my life. I love you, Richard Parker. You'll always be with me. May God be with you." - Pi Patel AFI - Movie of the Year: "Life of Pi" is an immersion into the world of imagination - one so powerful, so deeply transformational, that it stands as a cinematic monument to the power of storytelling ...
It may be the hottest ticket in town, but Betrayal was a bit disappointing. Best part of the show, hands down, was Rafe Spall. Two shows with two knights tomorrow!
Rafe spall is so pretty in such a strange way...
Being kind is the most important thing I've ever been taught. That's what my parents always told me - more important than ambition or success is being kind to people. The cornerstone of my life. What I aspire to is to be kind. Rafe Spall
British movie night with I Give It A Year and The World's End. Rafe Spall was terribly awkward, but funny, in I Give it A Year; and Simon Baker was an Aussie hunk. Now, forward with Simon Pegg -- watch out, the end is nigh!
My nerdy review of The Worlds End The last film in the cornetto trilogy The Worlds End brings a look at an invasion unlike any I’ve ever seen. The writing styles of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are very apparent in the film. From the dialogue to the action sequences that are of nothing more than starting a car. The easter eggs which I will get into later are also a delight to behold. I truly enjoy anything that these guys are involved in. The movie starts off strong and does not disappoint. I found that there are no moments where the movie drags or is struggling to entertain. I wrote this little review out of boredom and sadness, but more on that later. NOW the easter eggs... Simon, Nick, and Edgar had a Television shown in 1998 Called Spaced. It was Nick Frosts first acting job, and a sleeper hit in the UK as well as the US later on. In The Worlds End the first sequence was used to explain the entire movie just like Shaun of the dead, and it also contained music use in Spaced. The next is the cast obvio ...
What do you get when Mike Nichols directs Daniel Craig, Rafe Spall and Rachel Weisz in Harold Pinter's Betrayal at the Barrymore on Molly Matera tells all...
I GIVE IT A YEAR - comedy anna faris/rafe spall I give it a year charts the first year of nat and josh's mismatched marriage - from the outset this won't be a traditional romantic comedy
My mother has an extra ticket to see "Betrayal" (with yummy Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall) on Tues Nov. 19th in NYC (Barrymore Theater). Email, message or just find a way to let me know if you are interested in joining her. Ticket is free, my mother as your theater partner is the bonus.
So, Daniel Craig live on stage and me in row F. Play was Betrayal. His real life wife, Rachel Weisz, plays his wife. New guy, Rafe Spall, was remarkable. Watch for him. Acting was impressive by all. But back to Craig. So much more attractive/sexy live. Broad shoulders. Such piercing blue eyes.

Mad how ur watching a film on sky starring rafe spall then a think a knw that name bit of google n its timothys son ha mad a used to play him at pool aswell when he was a lad
Friend Estha and I saw Pinter's "Betrayal" with Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall this afternoon on Broadway. Not a wasted breath in their mannered " on form" conversations. The players were brilliant.
Yesterday, my son, his wife, my wife and I where at the Barrymore Theatre, NYC for the showing of Betrayal. This amazing show started the husband and wife actors, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and also starting Rafe Spall, which was really the start. It was 90 minutes, with no intermissions, of amazing set changes from the couples living room to the flat of the bedroom being betrayed to vacationing in Venice to being in a restaurant to being at a party. We all just loved this amazing play, but it did not stop here. We then went to the Frick Collection. We are lucky to have our daughter-in-law as the Assistant to the Director of the Frick. And the Frick is filled with Rembrandts, Turners, and also Vermeer's. But on this day it also had another Vermeer, The Girl with a Pearl Earring. It is a rare and beautiful painting and we saw it. After spending an hour and a half at the museum we then went down to the Village. We went to The Highland. This unique restaurant with a scot flare was wonderful fro ...
Ok, so Betrayal was elegant, spare, funny and painful... And had plenty of "Pinter pauses." I'll be hoping for Tony nods for the cast- Rafe Spall is a bright new talent. And much, much better looking than his dad, Tim (Peter Pettigrew). :-)
Just a few more minutes til we see "Betrayal' on B'way starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall! The concierge at the hotel said that ticket brokers are selling seats for $700 each-- tempting, but Daniel and Rachel are the reason for the trip:-)
DID YOU KNOW: Tobey Maguire was originally cast as the Writer in LIFE OF PI. Though he filmed his scenes, he was later replaced by Rafe Spall The director thought Maguire was too famous for such a small role, and would have been distracting.
Saw the fantastic play, Betrayal, tonight and met two of its stars Daniel Craig and Rafe Spall as well as its famed director, Mike Nichols. Extremely talented artists but also really genuine and real people.
Betrayal was top notch. Fantastic performances from Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall. I had never seen another production of this play before, and I found it funny, tragic, and earnestly genuine. Set design was mind-bogglingly good as well. Had a great opportunity to listen to the director Mike Nichols and Spall speak afterward, as well as a little farewell from Craig. Great experience overall.
Date with Rachael Weis, Daniel Craig and Rafe Spall ...massively excited.

Opening tonight is Harold Pinter's play "Betrayal" which tells the story of Emma (Rachel Weisz), married to Robert (Daniel Craig), who has long had an affair with Robert's best friend Jerry (Rafe Spall). This uniquely-structured play runs backwards through time.

I perused the playbill for the latest production of Betrayal staring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall high above the tower of seats that the Barrymore Theater calls the rear mezzanine. I was looking for something. The last time I saw a Harold Pinter play I was left more confused than anyth...
So do you think you know which actor didn’t play Shakespeare? If you guessed Ian McKellan, you are right! Despite being one of the most famous modern Shakespearean actors, he never played the man himself. Here are the films and shows where the other actors did play the Bard: Colin Firth- Blackadder: Back and Forth (1999) Rupert Graves- A Waste of Shame: William Shakespeare and his Sonnets (2005) Rafe Spall- Anonymous (2011) Tim Curry- Life of Shakespeare (1978)
Let’s start the day off right with a little Shakespeare trivia! Which of these actors have not played William Shakespeare in a movie or TV show? Colin Firth Rupert Graves Rafe Spall Ian McKellan Tim Curry Come back at 4 PM to find out the answer!
xD tru dat. But it does have Rafe spall xD
gonna watch Rafe Spall for 20 mins, hopefully these losers will be gone soon. this is the WH title match? 1st up? jesus.
The following is a transcription of a recent text exchange between Samuel W. Flint and myself: SAM: "I shall now watch your favorite movie: the great damon lindelof's Prometheus." ME: "DON'T." SAM: "Too late." ME: "I'm sorry." SAM: "I'll report on my results tomorrow." ME: "Dude, seriously. Spend two hours looking at cat gifs. They're better written." SAM: "However: Rafe Spall! You'll remember him as one of the Andys from Hot Fuzz. He's in it. Like him." ME: "Whatever. You've been warned." SAM: "But... charleze theron... HOT!" Approximately 24 hours later... SAM: "You were right, btw. Ever so right. Why did Ridley Scott bother making that?" ME: "I'm so sorry you had to see that."
Loved the play BETRAYAL. Rafe Spall and Rachel Weisz were first rate, and Pinter's unsentimental dialogue actually added to the pathos of a broken marriage and a hollow affair...Daniel Craig was strictly okay and despite his top billing as Bond, he does not electrify the stage. A person stood me up tonight and so I go to bed with a deeper understanding of the play's title.
The celeb fun continues - Tori and I just ran into Rafe Spall (who steals the show in Betrayal ) on W 47th Street. We shook his hand and gushed over him. Only slightly embarassing...
Just saw Betrayal at at Barrymore Theatre, with Rachel Weiz, Daniel Craig, and Rafe Spall. Good show!
Can we talk about how gorgeous Rafe Spall is in Hot Fuzz? Cuz I watched it again last night and every time he was on screen I was like ***
Just watched earthbound, story is so crazy that it's brilliant, good job rafe spall :p
It’s all rehearsal and no play for Betrayal stars Rachel Weisz, Daniel Craig and Rafe Spall this summer, but ...
I Give It A Year is a GREAT film. I heart Rafe Spall bigtime.
Simon Baker and Rafe Spall are both gorgeous, gorgeous men.
