  • Below are comments, posted on IMDb, from a viewer who saw The Situation starring Damian Lewis at the Palm Springs International Film Festival

    “Great story about the chaos and constant change of events in Iraq and the damage caused from miscommunication…even though the movie is a fictional film it is based on the realities of living and working in this war torn part of our world. The casting was excellent and the story unfolded perfectly. This movie required the viewer to pay attention and keep track of the players and each of their agendas. It was fast paced and kept the audience involved. It was not a “Hollywood” film full of gratuitous violence, but instead a deeper story about the people involved… It is a provocative film that evokes an emotional reaction from the viewers… One of the goals of the film is to provide a starting point for discussing the war and the events in Iraq. It is not a political statement, but instead a method to get people actively involved again.”

  • Damian Lewis will not appear on Wogan Now and Then as previously reported!

    » Damian sent word via his associate Melissa that he is no longer scheduled for the programme (and therefore will not be taping an episode next Wednesday as had been expected.)

    » In the same message Damian confirmed that he will appear in Confessions of a Diary Secretary airing on ITV on January 25th in February or March.

  • This Sydney Morning Herald review for the Australian broadcast of Much Ado About Nothing starring Sarah Parish and Damian Lewis (January 14th on ABC at 8:30 PM) says “…Parish, all bouncy hair and forked tongue, is a delight… Lewis is equally impressive as the smarmy ladies’ man who turns all gooey when fooled into thinking Beatrice loves him rather than loathes him. The pair have a sizzling chemistry and milk the comedy – and there’s plenty of it – for all it’s worth…”
  • In this review of Keane a viewer says “…The film is directed by Lodge Kerrigan and is masterfully done…Damian Lewis, who plays Keane, really makes the movie…he has a way of captivating the audience by playing the character as a tormented and disturbed man, yet sympathetic at times, as well…Keane is unlike any film I have ever seen and I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to see a powerful psychological thriller…”
