TIFF 2021 ‘Lo Invisible’ Review: A Stifling Portrait of Postpartum  

Published

TIFF 2021 ‘Lo Invisible’ Review: A Stifling Portrait of Postpartum  

In the mountains of Ecuador, Luisa returns to a beautiful modernist home. It is covered in glass windows and hard-cut surfaces, reflections of movement bouncing off every wall. As she re-enters her house after being away for a month, she is greeted by her husband, maids, and her newborn baby. No one speaks to her about where she has been. When her baby begins to cry, her husband orders a maid to take it away. 

Javier Andrade’s Lo Invisible is a tightly constructed examination of a woman with postpartum depression. After being accused of trying to harm her baby, Luisa (Anahí Hoeneisen) is sent to a psychiatric hospital for a month before she can come home. Following her return, everyone around her acts as if nothing has happened, as if things are back to normal. Luisa attempts to play the part. She attends the parties that are thrown at her house and goes for runs. But when she moves to hold her baby, the reality of her situation cannot be ignored. She cannot comfort her child, appearing to be an effort for her, indicating that things will never be the same. 

Andrade’s script (co-written with Hoeneisen) is purposefully stripped. It focuses solely on Luisa’s experience instead of plot, resulting in an intimate examination of her mental state as it progressively deteriorates. Scenes act more like vignettes; not quite connecting to the prior one. They sequentially investigate different aspects of Luisa’s psyche while further revealing details about her circumstances before she left. The film isn’t focused on the details of what led to her postpartum depression, rather on the aftermath of it. Its loose structure creates a slow but unnerving portrait of Luisa, creating an insightful character study. 

The construction of the film does not leave a relaxing impression. Instead, it accomplishes the opposite.  The suffocation Luisa is feeling is intensified by her surroundings. Luisa is trapped inside her gorgeous home. It rests in the mountains surrounded by nature. Sound design filled with wind and insects does not result in a calming feeling, but an overwhelming awareness of how secluded she is. The house itself is made up of glass windows and many of the walls within the structure are also transparent. When she goes on runs to obtain privacy, her driver is instructed to follow her closely, assuring that she will not do anything harmful. There is nowhere for Luisa to hide, leaving her suffering out in the open for everyone to see. As scenes appear one after the other, this idea becomes more and more evident. 

Despite being physically exposed, Luisa’s problems are ignored or undermined at every turn. When she breaks down in front of her maid during a massage, the maid only tells her to be strong, then walks down the stairs as Luisa is left wailing in agony for the entire house to hear. In an attempt for connection, Luisa clings to her older son as he plays video games, but he pays little attention to her either. She is expected to readjust quickly, and she does act out those parts, but none of it feels real to her. Everything is false and she can’t seem to find the person she used to be. Her attempts to regain herself become increasingly erratic and harmful, but it is never enough. These instances, along with many others, help portray what Luisa is going through. However, the lack of disruption from this cycle can leave the film feeling stagnant. 

Lo Invisible’s structure can be an effort to invest yourself in. Separately, each scene can feel like just another breakdown. Once the pieces come together to a haunting finale, however, the ending result is impactful. Andrade’s restrained direction supports Hoeneisen’s raw and truthful performance, which elevates the sparse script into something much greater. The film’s fluid nature culminates into an intimate portrait, but there may be too much ambiguity due to the lack of plot. Although it might have done well to implement more of a structure, Lo Invisible remains a poignant account of a woman who desperately wants to be seen.

Ciara Shares Message Of Support For Husband Russell Wilson After Surgery: ‘Toughest Man I Know’

Ciara gushed over her ‘sweet king’ Russell Wilson following his hand injury. See the sweet message she penned for her quarterback husband.

Ciara shared a sweet message of support for husband Russell Wilson following his surgery on October 8. The singer, 35, shared a photo with her football quarterback husband, 32, and called him the “toughest man I know” after he suffered a hand injury during a game the day before.

“You’re the toughest Man I know,” the “Level Up” singer captioned the post. “Always dedicated and committed to do whatever it takes. I love you so much my Sweet King. Thank you Dr Shin and team for taking care of my baby.” Russell looked in good spirits from the hospital bed, holding up one arm.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback sustained a finger injury during a game against the Los Angeles Rams on October 7. The NFL player pulled out during the second half of the game after he injured his finger on his throwing hand, which happened after he came into contact with the Rams’ defensive lineman Aaron Donald.

The quarterback underwent surgery for a ruptured tendon on his middle finger on his right hand. The athlete is expected to miss as much as six to eight weeks of games due to the surgery, USA Today reported on Friday. The unfortunate injury comes a few days after he set a new NFL record, too.

During a game on October 3, he became the fastest quarterback to reach 100 wins following the Seahawks’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers. On Instagram on October 4, Ciara celebrated her husband’s victory with a sweet video that featured their son Win, 1, dancing to the Queen song “”We Are the Champions.”

Little Win looked dapper in a navy blue suit while holding sunglasses. “That feeling when you get the WIN, and you learn Daddy made history today by becoming the fastest QB in @NFL history to reach 100 wins!” Ciara captioned the post. “Proud of you @DangeRussWilson. You inspire us all!” The couple, who wed in 2016, also share daughter Sienna, 4, together.

On his own Instagram account on Friday, Russell shared a snapshot from the hospital. “Lion Heart,” he captioned the post, which featured the athlete in a wheelchair and his right hand bandaged.

Hayden Christensen Has Barely Aged Since ‘Star Wars’ In Rare NYC Comic Con Appearance — Photos

Hayden Christensen

Hyping up fans at 2021 Comic Con ahead of the Disney+ ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ series, the 40-year-old actor looked better than ever!

Actor Hayden Christensen made a rare appearance on Friday, Oct. 8 at the Empire State Building in New York City to promote the 2021 Comic Con — and he never looked better! The 40-year-old showed up with RX CEO Hugh Jones to create hype for the event which is taking place all weekend. The Canadian actor, who played Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars — Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars — Revenge of the Sith (2005), is reprising the role for the forthcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi and will likely talk with fans all weekend about the project.

Not much is yet known about how much Anakin will be featured on the show, but Hayden is slotted as a series regular. Also starring in the project is Ewan McGregor in the title role, Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr.Sung Kang, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine, and more.

On March 29, 2021, Disney+ announced that the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series would begin shooting in April 2021. The series already had pushbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also because of several script rewrites that took place, per Inverse. There’s also been a lot of speculation about where the series would shoot, but Ewan set the record straight while speaking with Eddie Izzard in February 2021.

“We start making it in the late spring, and I think we’re going to be shooting it here in LA,” Ewan said. “It’s so funny – every week there’s a new report… there’s another tabloid expose that we’re shooting it in some bizarre town somewhere. Then we’re meant to be making it in Boston, then, ‘No, it wasn’t Boston, it was Boston, England.’ But we’re not. We’re shooting it in LA.”

Although Hayden likes to keep things pretty low key, he was recently spotted out and about with daughter Briar Rose, 6, whom he shares with ex Rachel Bilson, 39. The father-daughter duo looked adorable hitting the Los Angeles Farmers Market together, gathering some potted plants for what seemed to be a gardening mission. Both Hayden and Rachel — who met while filming the 2008 flick Jumper — like to keep Briar out of the public eye.

The couple that color coordinates together, stays together. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis twinned during a recent outing in Los Angeles.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis stepped out to run errands in color coordinated outfits. The former That ’70s Show co-stars both opted for comfortable gray ensembles while in Los Angeles on October 7, completing their looks with black surgical masks.

Ashton, 43, wore an ombré knit sweater and black slacks, while Mila, 38, opted for a two-piece sweater and sweat pants set. The actress was preoccupied with her phone while her husband of six years led the way to their next destination.

The outing comes a day after Ashton was spotted looking dapper on set of Your Place or Mine, his upcoming romantic comedy with Reese Witherspoon. The star was photographed in a navy blue suit on the streets of New York on October 7, while co-star Reese, 45, looked elegant in a black pencil dress and pointed heels.

Ashton and Reese lead the cast of the upcoming Netflix rom-com as two best friends who, on top of being polar opposites, live on opposite sides of the coast. When they swap homes and lives for a week, they “discover what they think they want might not be what they really need,” per Variety. Jesse Williams, Tig Notaro, Zoë Chao, Wesley Kimmel, and Steve Zahn also star in the film.

Ashton and Mila’s outing also comes amidst news that their 1998 series That ’70s Show will receive a spin-off series, That ’90s Show. Original stars Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp will reprise their roles as Red and Kitty Forman and lead the series. Set in 1995 Wisconsin, the spin-off will follow Leia Forman, daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), as she visits her grandparents and forges a friendship with a new generation of Point Place kids.

Deadline reported on Friday that there are currently no deals to bring back the other original cast members, but it’s expected that a number of them will reprise their roles through guest appearances, including Topher, Laura, and Ashton. The series has been picked up for 10 episodes. The original show had another short-lived spin-off That ’80s Show in 2002, but none of the original stars were attached.

For now, we’ll be manifesting a Kelso and Jackie reunion on the upcoming spin-off — ideally in color coordinated outfits.

Kanye West Was Asked To Be Musical Guest On Kim Kardashian’s ‘SNL’ Debut: Why It Didn’t Happen

Published

Kanye West

Kim and Kanye were in talks of hitting the airwaves together as an ‘SNL’ duo this weekend, and a source tells HL EXCLUSIVELY what happened.

Kim Kardashian will make her Saturday Night Live debut tomorrow, and fans (and haters!) are gearing up to see what the 40-year-old has in store. Kim is is the first reality star to host the long-running program, and plenty of talk around the event has made headlines, including the rumor that her estranged husband, Kanye West, would join her for the show as a musical guest. So what happened?

“Weeks and weeks ago when they were getting Kim to do the show, they threw around the possibility of him to be the musical guest, those discussions didn’t make it very far,” a source EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife. “But writers like Michael Che have been throwing the idea around of him being in something. They don’t expect him to do anything, but they certainly asked.”

The source previously revealed to HL how much Kim was “very nervous” about doing the show and that she “wanted to knock it out of the park.” Although the SKIMS founder won’t have a familiar face in Kanye by her side, she may just be focused on having a successful performance herself without her ex around. “She wants to prove to herself and any haters that it was worth it for her to be asked to do the show,” the source added.

Ever since Kim filed for divorce from the “Off the Grid” rapper back in Feb. 2021, how “separate” the two have remained amid their separation has been up in the air. Kim famously appeared in Kanye’s DONDA album performance in Chicago on Aug. 30 in a wedding dress, which caused many to speculate that the two were reconsidering their divorce. As a source told HL at the time, the couple was “putting on a united front” and were “taking it day by day.” Ahead of the Chicago appearance, the couple were also spotted in Malibu on Aug. 19, having a kids-free lunch together.

Kanye West Spotted Having Coffee With Michael Cohen In NYC Before Kim Kardashian’s ‘SNL’ Debut

Published

Kanye West

Kanye West was spotted out and about in the Big Apple just a day ahead of estranged wife Kim Kardashian’s ‘SNL’ gig.

Kanye West, 44, is in New York City. The Yeezy rapper was spotted having coffee with Donald Trump‘s former lawyer Michael Cohen just a day before Kim Kardashian‘s Saturday Night Live debut — see the photos via Page Six here.

The Disloyal: A Memoir author, 55, has been under house arrest after being convicted for tax evasion and finance fraud. Cohen was disbarred by the New York Supreme Court Feb. 26, 2019, and later reported to Otisville, New York in May 2019. He was released in May 2020, which is when he began serving his house arrest.

The odd pairing were seen sitting at an outdoor table surrounded by trees at Sant Ambroeus. Two red to-go coffee cups could be seen on the table as they appeared to be in conversation. Kanye was casually dressed in a black hoodie and pants, while Cohen sported a long sleeved black t-shirt. After Cohen was also spotted out in May, his lawyer explained that his client had received “special permission from the BOP [Bureau of Prisons} and RRM [Residential Reentry Management] to eat out.”

The Chicago native actively supported Donald Trump throughout his presidency, even wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap on several occasions. In 2020, Kanye said he was “taking the hat off” as he surprisingly announced his own political ambitions, subsequently running against Trump and current President Joe Biden.

Kanye’s ex Kim has been actively rehearsing for SNL‘s Oct. 9 episode in New York City, which she’s set to host. While it was initially rumored that Kanye could appear as musical guest on the same date, it was later confirmed that Halsey, 27, would be taking the reigns for the fifth time.

Although the rapper isn’t scheduled to appear on the episode, it’s been reported that Kanye has been “quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show,” per Page Six. In recent months, Kim has been wearing head-to-toe Balenciaga — a luxury label that Kanye is also closely related with due to his relationship with Demna Gvasalia.

Britney Spears & Fiancé Sam Asghari Indulge In Lavish Desserts While Flying On A Private Jet

Amid her promising legal battle, Britney Spears shared a sweet new video with fiancé Sam Asghari aboard a jet.

Britney Spears is living her best life amid her promising conservatorship battle. The pop star, 39, shared a video with fiancé Sam Asghari from a private jet on Instagram on October 8. The couple indulged in some miniature desserts as the singer ruminated on God “being in the little things.”

The “Stronger” singer held up her “baby dessert” and explained that it was sweeter than cornbread. “God is in the little things,” she said, describing her little dessert as the “tiniest piece of food I have ever seen in my life.” Her fiancé, 27, asked to taste the confection before they moved on to some chocolates.

Britney said they were “criminals” for indulging in the goods so early in the morning. “I can’t believe we are doing this in the morning,” she endearingly said. “We are criminals!” The pop star captioned the post with a cryptic message: “Ain’t it funny what the truth can do ????? Pssss although I’ve learned from the best about those beautiful white lies.”

The video comes after Britney scored a major victory during a court hearing on September 29. A judge suspended her estranged father Jamie from her conservatorship, appointing certified public accountant John Zabel in his place. It came after the star pleaded for her father to be removed as conservator — a role he has held since it was first implemented in 2008 — during previous summer court hearings.

A court date has been set for November 12 to possibly explore the termination of the conservatorship for good. Following the victory, a source  told HollywoodLife that the pop star has been writing new music amid her legal battles, reiterating that Britney is not retired just yet. The star has been on a work hiatus since the end of her Vegas residency in 2017.

“Despite what is being put out there, Britney is not retired. It is actually quite the opposite,” the source told HL. “She has been writing music over the past couple of years because it would be impossible for her not to. Music is her passion and it is in her blood.” The source added that “top producers in the industry” have been reaching out: “Everyone is dying to work with her.”

Kim Kardashian May Have Mom & Sisters In ‘SNL’ Audience & Is Up For Spoofing Herself & Family

Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian

‘No joke is off the table’ when it comes to Kim Kardashian making her ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting debut on Oct.9, a source tells HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY.

We are just one day away from Kim Kardashian, 40, making her debut on Saturday Night Live. The SKIMS founder makes history as the first-ever reality star to host the series — and HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY learned that no jokes are off the table!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is used to the limelight, so one would think that hosting SNL would be a piece of cake — however, a source reveals that that may not be the case. “Kim is very nervous about doing SNL because she wants to really knock it out of the park. She wants to prove to herself and any haters that it was worth it for her to be asked to do the show,” a source reveals to HL.

Of course, Kim and her family have been the butt of jokes on SNL for years, and now, the reality star will get a chance to get in on the action herself, and perhaps share the moment with her beloved family. “One thing she has done and to put the cast at ease is that she has told them that any idea is a good idea, and they can absolutely present her anything and she is willing to make fun of herself and she has mentioned that nothing is off-limits. She wants the best idea to win, and she wants to really make it a fun show. If they want to make fun of her family and have some family members on the show, she is all for it.”

The KKW Beauty founder will be the first Kardashian-Jenner to host the comedy sketch show, which has been a dream of Kim’s, and all hands are on deck for the occasion. “All hands are on deck when it comes to Kim’s family to be a part of the show, [and] ideas have been thrown [around]. [Another] idea [that has] been [discussed] is a digital short and a Keeping Up spoof,” our source states. “Most of the show has been written. But like SNL always does, they always go down to the wire and continue to make changes and add new skits up until and after rehearsals. But her sisters and her mother have Kim’s back and are ready to help in any skit this weekend and Kim is all for it.”

However the show comes together, we know it’ll be a riot — especially after the hilarious promos that were released on Oct. 7. In one of the promos, Cecily Strong asks Kim if she’s “nervous” about doing sketch comedy for the first time. “Why? I don’t have to write sketches, do I?” Kim asks, to which Cecily responds, “No.” Then, Kim wonders, “[Do I have to] memorize lines?” and Halsey assures her, “No, they’re on cue cards.” The most important question of all, though, is: “Everyone won’t look as good as me, will they?” Cecily insists, “No, absolutely not!” and Kim is now certain that the job will be “so easy.”

The highly-anticipated episode will air on Oct. 9., and Halsey will be the musical guest. In addition to Kim, other celeb hosts for season 47 include Owen Wilson, Rami Malek, and Jason Sudeikis, which NBC revealed on Sept. 22.

Amid ongoing speculations of divorce, a source tells HollywoodLife exclusively that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s relationship has seen better days.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s relationship has been rocky amid ongoing divorce rumors. The couple, who wed in 2006, has weathered many storms, including public admissions of infidelity. While Dean, 54, recently called the split speculations “weird,” a source has revealed exclusively to HollywoodLife that Tori, 48, and her husband “aren’t getting along” amid divorce rumors.

“Right now, Tori and Dean aren’t getting along,” a source close to the couple told HL. “They really haven’t for a long time. He’s wanted to leave Tori and the home, but he doesn’t want to leave the kids. That’s been really, really hard on him.” Tori is currently away from Los Angeles filming her upcoming project Bleeding Greed, and the source added that this brief separation has been “good” for the couple.

“Because she’s away filming, this break is something they needed,” the source continued. “Her doing this film is long overdue and this may give Tori the strength to do her own thing too. They’ve been having problems for a very long time and he has thought about moving out and has stayed with friends, but he wants to be with the children.”

“He doesn’t want to give that up,” the source concluded. “This break is a good thing for them.” The couple share five children together: Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Finn, 9, Hattie, 9, and Beau, 4. The rumors of a separation have largely been fueled by the fact that the two have been spotted without their wedding rings. Tori also previously revealed in June that she and her husband don’t sleep in the same bedroom.

She explained that the children began sleeping with her while Dean was away for six months filming at a different country. “Right now, my kids and dogs sleep in my bed,” Tori said. “Since he left — this is not good, you guys — but since he left [and] he was gone for six months filming in another country, they all stayed with me, so I currently still have four in the bedroom with me who have yet to go back to their rooms.”

With chatter of a rough patch abuzz, Dean addressed the rumors while on the “Feminine Warrior” podcast on September 15. “I don’t reply, you know, anymore. It’s just like, ‘OK, if that’s what you want to think, then think it,” he said. “It’s just weird that people need to know. ‘What’s going on with Tori and Dean? She’s not wearing her ring.’ Why do you need to know that? How is that going to affect your day?”

Jon Gosselin Reveals How It Felt To Visit The OG ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ House After 12 Years

Jon Gosselin Reveals How It Felt To Visit The OG ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ House After 12 Years

Jon Gosselin returned to the Pennsylvania home that made him a household name and he revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HL how it made him feel!

Jon Gosselin, 44, was wrapping up a day of work when he decided to pull over at the Pennsylvania home TLC viewers fell in love with when they first met him on Jon & Kate Plus 8 in 2007. The nostalgic moment brought back all the feels for the reality alum, which he opened up about. “I pass it on the highway 100 times with Amazon,” Jon told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY on Oct. 7, referencing his full-time job. “I travel that highway a lot. I was actually down one road that connects so I said, ‘I’m just going to stop. Why not?’ Who cares? I’m just a normal person now. I was working with my partner, the International DJ Casper and we were in the studio together working on some music and I was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to swing by my old stomping grounds and crib.”

The DJ and Amazon employee once lived in the home with his now ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, 46. The former couple split after 10 years of marriage in 2010. Their once famous show documented their lives as they raised twins Mady and Cara Gosselin, 20, and their adorable sextuplet siblings, Joel, Aiden, Collin, Hannah, Alexis and Leah, 17. Jon currently has custody of Collin and Hannah while their siblings live with their mother (Mady and Cara are now at college in New York City).

He even decided to knock and see if the new owners were willing to come to the door to say hello! “I actually rang their doorbell and nobody was home,” Jon revealed. “I don’t remember who bought the house or if it’s the second owner after me and no one was home and the neighbors were looking at me like, ‘My God!’ and then I just took a selfie and said, ‘Why not?!’ and it was funny.”

Although the house was empty, Jon took note of the new look. “They added an awning to the front of the house,” Jon said. “They changed the shutters. They put up a thing on the end of the fence and they have a dog. The tree in the front yard got really big! But it’s been 15 years since I lived there. It was interesting. That’s where it all started completely — Season 1.”

While Jon hopes to return for a future visit, it’s up to his kids if they want to go back and see it for themselves. “They can just drive there!” Jon added. “My kids are adults, pretty much. They’ll be 18. They can go whenever they want.”
