We were so excited by the presence of Dame Angela Lansbury at the Backstage at the Geffen event we attended this weekend that we failed to actually speak to her. But we had SO much to ask her, including questions about her early days co-starring with Ingrid Bergman and Hedy Lamarr, whether she was working on solving any mysteries these days, and of course, her thoughts on The Manchurian Candidate proving to be a prophetic film. #angelalansbury #geffenplayhouse #watersendprod
Our friends at the #AcademyMuseum sent us this wonderful photo of #BruceDern from the brilliant #AlexanderPayne film NEBRASKA. We’ve been spending a lot of time with Bruce lately in the editing room! @tomdolby #TheArtistsWife #watersendprod #Oscars #TheAcademy #filmediting #premierepro #indiefilm #independentfilm
We’re loving the new #watersendprod mini Wall of Fame in our waiting room, celebrating #cmbyn. Third and fourth pics from #Sundance, before the film premiered and then after. Note Armie and Abdi’s matching casts! (@luca.guadagnino - we need to take more selfies with you!) #cmbyn #cmbynfilm #sonyclassics #sundance2017 #CallMeByYourName #ArmieHammer #TimotheeChalamet

So cool that @watersendprod’s Head of Production, Susanne Filkins, got cover profiled in the Bakersfield Californian, ’From Bakersfield to Tinseltown: Local Girl Makes Good.’ The story hits upon many things, including her rise to Hollywood, where the one and only Bruce Dern calls her a ‘wunderkind.’ It doesn’t get much better than that.
Writer-director Nia DaCosta took home the Nora Ephron award from the @Tribeca Film Festival for her incredible film debut from @watersendprod, #LittleWoods. Each year, the award is presented to a female writer or director who embodies the spirit of the legendary filmmaker. This was well-earned. Congrats!
Today is the day. If you’re in Southern California, NY, Phoenix, Miami or Detroit, please go see this incredible film that I’m crazy proud to be a co-executive producer of. I love this movie, and love being part of the team at Water’s End Productions. If you see it, tell me what you think!
THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW opens tomorrow in New York, Southern California, Phoenix, Detroit, and Miami. We are so proud of Peter Livolsi's film, and can't wait for you to see it. It's hilarious and heartwarming, and the performances from Alex Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman Maude Apatow and Michaela Watkins are incredible. Go see it!
One more of Susanne on the LITTLE WOODS Tribeca Film Festival red carpet because she is owning it.
Check out Water's End's Susanne Filkins on the red carpet with LITTLE WOODS star Tessa Thompson at the Tribeca Film Festival. We're so proud of this film and can’t wait for you to see it!
You've seen Tessa Thompson in THOR, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, CREED, and Janelle Monae's visionary new videos. You've seen Lily James as CINDERELLA and in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. But you've never seen them as raw and powerful as they are in LITTLE WOODS, which will premiere this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival. Huge congrats to Nia DaCosta and the whole team on creating this feminist Western — Water’s End is thrilled to be a part of this movie!
Check out the fabulous new poster for THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW. We are thrilled to be a part of this film, and can't wait for you to see it when it's released in theaters on April 27. Punk music. Buckminster Fuller. Ellen Burstyn. How can you resist? The trailer was just released too. Head over to Entertainment Weekly to see it. #TheHouseOfTomorrow #The Rash #watersendprod
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is now out in wide release. We love this Providence, RI theater marquee. Go see this film on a big screen!
Wow, it was exactly one year ago that CALL ME BY YOUR NAME premiered at Sundance. I feel so grateful to be an associate producer of Luca Guadagnino’s gorgeous film, and most of all grateful to work at Water’s End Productions, a company that is all about telling bold, vital human stories. The movie is in wide release now, so go see it!

@thatmichellemorgan’s hilarious, sophisticated debut IT HAPPENED IN LA is getting the red carpet treatment over at @itunesmovies! Not that we’re a bit surprised. Morgan’s film is a cunning relationship expose in the tradition of ANNIE HALL and HIGH FIDELITY. Don’t miss the chance to catch the film on iTunes and VOD. . . . #MichelleMorgan #WatersEndProd #ItHappenedinLAFilm
With 2017’s enormous (and long overdue) output of female-directed films, from LADY BIRD to WOMEN WHO KILL to WONDER WOMAN, we’re left wondering if 2018 will be anywhere near as good...this list from @Mubi is making us feel pretty optimistic! . . . #FemaleDirectors #Watersendprod http://ow.ly/PbGt30h3LuZ
If you’re looking for a cute overdose today (and are tired of looking at photos of kittens online) look no further than the adorable PSA that @CallMeByYourNameFilm stars @tchalamet and @armiehammer made for the amazing @AlamoDrafthouse theaters in Austin, Dallas, and Richardson Heights. These two have chemistry for days. . . . #WatersEndProd #CallMeByYourNameFilm #AlamoDrafthouse http://ow.ly/28hu30h3BAK
Wow, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is #1 at our favorite Los Angeles bookstore, Book Soup! This holiday season, you can fall in love with Elio and Oliver on screen...and on the page, which is how we first discovered these beautiful characters. (and don’t forget the audio book, narrated by Armie Hammer) Is the book better than the movie? In this case, we think it’s a tie! #watersendprod
Auteur @anthonyonah’s contemporary Wall Street thriller THE PRICE is out today on iTunes movies, Amazon, and other streaming platforms. From @amlameenbaby’s stunning lead performance to how Onah’s script grapples with questions of race, ambition, and personal debt, THE PRICE shows a new side of the American Dream. We can’t wait to see where this talented director’s career will go next! . . . #ThePriceFilm #WatersEndProd #AnthonyOnah
The weekend’s Hollywood Royalty part 2, after the incredible Water’s End Productions screening of Call Me By Your Name, hovering over Laurence Olivier’s ⭐️ . Go see it when it opens Friday!
If you, like so many star-crossed Angelenos out there, are still wondering if love is real, @michellemorgan_’s debut feature, IT HAPPENED IN L.A., will dazzle and delight you. We’re proud to have been involved with this hilarious film that manages to be both romantic and cynical in the best way possible. If you want to give yourself a treat, you can catch IT HAPPENED IN L.A. in theaters and on @itunesmovies starting today! . . . #ItHappenedinLA #watersendprod #MichelleMorgan #theorchardfilms
IT HAPPENED IN L.A. is now available on iTunes and On Demand. I love this movie so much, and am beyond proud to be an executive producer of it, alongside my Water's End Productions family. On the left here is Michelle Morgan, the film's brilliant writer-director-star-underachiever, who captures modern Los Angeles in all its thorny glory and who wrote a script I want to quote every day. After seeing the movie at Sundance, one of my best friends called Michelle his spirit animal. Watch the movie to see if she’s yours too. On the right is one of the film's stars, Nora Zehetner. My kids are obsessed with her, and you will be too. Just don't ask her to be your best grown-up friend, 'cause two children will come after you. IT HAPPENED IN L.A.. See it now!
I'm very proud to be an executive producer, alongside my Water's End Productions family, on THE PRICE, which opens today in ten cities and will be available on VOD Nov. 28. It's a beautiful, thrilling story about the price of the American Dream. Here's where you can see it this weekend. Spread the word! Atlanta - AMC North Dekalb Mall 16 Chicago - AMC Cicero 14 Columbus, OH - AMC Lennox 24 Denver - AMC Fort Collins 10 Houston - AMC Brazos 14 Los Angeles - AMC Orange 30 Durham, NC - AMC Durham 15 San Francisco - AMC Deer Valley Stadium Dallas - AMC Mesquite 10 Washington DC - AMC Apple Blossom 12
Anthony Onah’s film THE PRICE is a complex morality tale about money, ambition, and the new Wall Street. The folks at the Indie Memphis Film Festival love it, too: they just awarded Onah the Craig Brewer Emerging Filmmaker Award for Best Feature Debut! THE PRICE hits theaters today. . . . #ThePriceFilm #WatersEndProd #IndieMemphisFilmFestival
One of André Aciman’s greatest concerns about Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is that the film would turn out “too beautiful.” We’d say it looks just beautiful enough in @elledecor’s story about the Italian villa where the film was shot. Bellissima! Keep an eye out for the full feature when it hits stands in December. And need we remind you to head to theaters on November 24 to see this glorious set in action? . . #watersendprod #CallMeByYourNameFilm #ElleDecor
We feel crazy pride about finally sharing IT HAPPENED IN L.A. with the world, and, well, those are our feelings. Writer/director Michelle Morgan’s film is a stylish, witty, and biting satire of life and love in Los Angeles. It’s been called the female answer to SWINGERS, but we think of Michelle more as the west coast Whit Stillman. The movie is playing at Brooklyn’s Videology this week, at Los Angeles’ Arena Cinelounge the week of November 10, and will be available digitally on November 14. Watch. Laugh. Discover a brilliant new comedic voice. And obviously, share your feelings with us. Because if that’s how you feel, those are your feelings! #quotablelines #watersendprod #ItHappenedInLA #MustSee . . . . . #michellemorgan #dreehemingway #jormataccone #indiefilm #theorchard #writerdirector #filmmaker #yourfeelings #losangeles #lalife #latimes #swingers #whitstillman #supportindiefilm #VOD
If you enjoy classical music and shirtless banter, you’re going to love @moviefone and @huffpostarts’s exclusive @cmbynfilm clip. We can’t wait for the film to hit theaters next month so you can see @tchalamet tickle the ivories and flirt with @armiehammer on the big screen! . . . #CallMeByYourNameFilm #watersendprod
We fell in love with IT HAPPENED IN L.A. from the moment we first laughed our way through its brilliant script. If you’re looking for a hilarious look at modern life and love in Los Angeles, @michellemorgan_’s Sundance hit just got acquired by @OrchFilms and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Working on Morgan’s directorial debut with such talents as @dreelouisehemingway , @jormataccone and @kentuckeraudley was a pure delight, and we’re stoked for the film to hit screens in November. . . . #ItHappenedinLA #MichelleMorgan #watersendprod
Wishing a very happy birthday to Lucy Griffiths, who is soon to charm audiences as Liz Sloane in THE PRICE, Anthony Onah’s brilliant story of ambition and deceit. We’re so proud to be a part of Anthony’s film, and we’ve been fans of Griffiths since her TRUE BLOOD days. . . . #watersendprod #LucyGriffiths #ThePrice
Beautiful sight of fans after #callmebyyourname asking director @luca.guadagnino to sign their copies of the novel. Was also an amazing treat to sit at dinner with author @acimanandre and hear the genesis of the story. “It started with a stranger arriving in a car, at a house in Italy...” #watersendprod #NYFF #indiefilm
Wishing a fabulous birthday to the outspoken, unstoppable (and so much more than badass) @tessamaethompson! It’s been a thrill to be associated with her on Nia DaCosta’s debut film, LITTLE WOODS, coming out next year, and having recently met her, she’s nothing less than awesome. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this incredible talent. . . . #watersendprod #LittleWoods #TessaThompson
With the amazing and lovely Tessa Thompson, who gives a staggering performance in LITTLE WOODS. Writer/Director Nia Dacosta’s debut film received a much deserved standing ovation at tonight’s premiere! Love that our company, Water’s End Productions supports female filmmakers and am so excited for everyone to see this powerful story of two sisters struggling to survive in small-town America. #lovemyjob #watersendprod #tribecafilmfestival
We spent so much time discussing how best to approach the legend that is Dame Angela that we totally missed our opportunity. BUT I kind of made things right with this photo. And for the record, my opening line was gonna be: “Dame Angela, when you costarred with Hedy Lamarr in Samson and Delilah in 1949, were you aware that she had already invented your future iPhone?”
Scotty Bowers and I in matching denim at the premiere of Matt Tyrnauer's brilliant doc, SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD. If you follow me here, you know how obsessed I am with Hollywood history so getting to be involved in this project (with my @watersendprod family) is a true honor. #watersendprod #scottyandthesecrethistoryofhollywood (photo by @aubryla1)
