A great actor is one who is not only applauded for bringing the on-screen character to life but also for bringing the script alive.

When the actor himself turns director, one is sure to witness a spectacle, as a masterpiece is born. &PrivéHD, the premium destination of nuanced cinema has brought a riveting property, The Actor’s Cut, where one discovers the increasing appetite to pursue the director’s side of an actor from June 1, 2019, every Saturday at 7 PM.

&PrivéHD’s ‘The Actor’s Cut’ property comes with a package of movies from incredible artists like Denzel Washington, Barbara Streisand, Meg Ryan, Jason Bateman, and Ben Stiller. Two times Oscar Winner Denzel Washington has delivered a brilliant performance as an actor and director in the movie, Fences. Viola Davis has won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Actress in a Supporting role for this movie with various other accolades at major events. Set in the 1950’s the story focuses on a working-class African-American father who tries to make ends meet as he dreams of being a baseball player. Failing to do so, it creates tension within the family and squashes his son’s dream of being a footballer.
Another movie about love in its unique form between two colleagues who enter a non-intimate relationship with each other is A Mirror Has Two Faces by Barbara Streisand. The movie talks about the relationship between two professors from Columbia who are frustrated with their lives for various reasons. Jeff Bridges who plays the role of Gregory Larkin and Barbara Streisand plays a woman who he finds unattractive. After all the tension amongst them, the story turns as Rose chooses to bloom through a healthy living and a major makeover which transforms her into a swan as a last attempt to save her marriage while her husband is on a work trip. The movie has won Golden Globe Award along with a nomination at the Oscars. Ithaca, another movie on the roster of Actor’s Cut is directed by Meg Ryan. The movie is a coming-of-age story about the exuberance of adolescence, the abruptness of change, the sweetness of life, the sting of death, and the sheer goodness that lives in each one of us. Meg Ryan has successfully pulled off both the roles as an actor and director with ease.
The next in line in the Actor’s Cut cluster is Tropic Thunder, an intense film which explores the other side of the actors as they are stuck at the line of fire between a cartel group, Flaming Dragons, and the rebels with mere prop guns to gain inspiration for a role in the movie! The movie stars Primetime Emmy Award Winner, Actor and Director Ben Stiller, Three Times Golden Globe Award Winner Robert Downey Jr and Two Times Golden Globe Award Winner Tom Cruise.
The movie Family Fang is all about, a family unit so dysfunctional that it forms a circle of exploitation and aggression within itself. An intellectually stimulating comedy drama is directed by Jason Bateman and features himself alongside Oscar Award Winner Nicole Kidman. The movie revolves around adult siblings Baxter and Annie who are scarred from an unconventional upbringing, return to their family home after an unlikely accident. When their parents; performance artists famous for elaborate public hoaxes - suddenly go missing under troubling circumstances, unsure whether it's foul play or just another elaborate ruse, nothing can prepare them for what they discover about their parents and, more importantly, themselves.
