<i>Sons of Anarchy</i>'s Robin Weigert 'Kills It' in the Indie Film <i>Concussion</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Murder and mayhem may be all in a days work for Robin Weigert on Sons of Anarchy, where she plays Ally Lowen, the brotherhood's smart and savvy lawyer. Yet in Concussion a new must see indie film written and directed by Stacie Passon, she is absolutely stunning, delivering a killer performance that's gritty, raw, and sexy -- and so damn beautiful that you may just fall a little bit in love with her. Weigert takes you deep into the deliciously complicated, and yes as the movie goes on, increasingly sex-filled world of Abby, a 40-something stay at home lesbian mom who is having a midlife crisis, leading up to her becoming a high end lesbian escort. As you may suspect, it all starts with a "concussion", although frankly it could have been any event, that sparked Abby's realization that something is missing from her life and her marriage. While she loves her wife and her kids, Abby is hungry -- hungry for sex and freedom. Once her desires are awakened there is no going back, so she hi ...

Kate Walsh Returning To TV
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The cast of DirecTV's "Full Circle" is full of TV veterans. Kate Walsh, David Boreanaz, Minka Kelly and Julian McMahon are just a few of the small screen favorites who will star in the new 10-episode drama. This is Walsh's first TV project since "Private Practice" ended in early 2013 and "Bones" fans shouldn't worry: Boreanaz will return for the Fox procedural's Season 9. The series from Neil LaBute aims to examine "the human condition and relationships through a series of conversations between 11 people," whose lives are intertwined, unbeknownst to them. Each episode takes place in a restaurant and is a conversation between two characters. One of the character's storylines then will carry over into the next episode through a conversation with a new character. The "Full Circle" cast also includes "Harry Potter's" Tom Felton, Keke Palmer, Devon Gerhart, Billy Campbell, Noah Silver, Ally Sheedy, Cheyenne Jackson, and Robin Weigert.

Frameline37: Gay film fest ready to laugh
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 4 years
Frameline37: Gay film fest ready to laugh In an era of rapid social change, the 37th edition of Frameline's San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival might turn out to be one of the most memorable of all. From an opening-night film, "Concussion," a dramedy that has brilliant comedic moments, to a closing-night film, "G.B.F.," a high school comedy, Frameline37 (June 20-30) comes with a laugh track. Consider that the Frameline Award for career achievement goes to writer-director Jamie Babbit, known for comedies such as 1999's "But I'm a Cheerleader," which screens this year as part of the tribute. The Supreme Court's decision on Proposition 8 - the law banning same-sex marriage in California that was passed by voters in 2008 - is expected to be handed down during the festival. Leather Bar, a reimagining of the 40 minutes of footage cut from Cruising, William Friedkin's 1980 lightning rod with Al Pacino undercover in New York's leather world, co-directed by ...

Robert Weiss: Sex and the Cultural Zeitgeist
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Once upon a time, there was no such thing as the Internet. Endless varieties and amounts of hardcore pornography were not available at the touch of a button. America had not yet been desensitized by digital smut, and sex was a taboo subject. Nowhere was this more evident than in movies and on television. For instance, the Motion Picture Production Code (commonly referred to as the Hays Code), adopted in 1934 and not abandoned until 1968, spelled out what was acceptable and what was unacceptable in U.S. motion pictures -- and a whole lot of stuff that seems pretty benign by today's standards was deemed "unacceptable." Among the many topics banned by the Hays Code were: • Licentious or suggestive nudity -- in fact or in silhouette -- along with any lecherous or licentious notice thereof by characters in the picture • Any inference of sexual perversion (including homosexuality) • Miscegenation (mixed-race sexual relationships) • Discussion of sexual hygiene and/or vene ...

Between now and Feb. 25, 2013, executive arts and entertainment editor Michael Hogan and entertainment editor Christopher Rosen will chat about awards season and which films will make the most noise at the 85th annual Academy Awards.

Tom Teicholz: Jon Baitz's Journey to Other Desert Cities
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Cast members Robin Weigert and Robert Foxworth in rehearsal for "Other Desert Cities." Photo by Craig Schwartz In Hollywood, the logline for this story would be: A playwright who has outwitted his demons to find balance in his life, has, after a devastating TV experience, returned to the stage with a play whose plot twist is as transformative to its actors and to the audience's assumptions about the characters, as writing it was for the playwright. The play is a success Off Broadway, and then a bigger success on Broadway. As validation and final vindication, he brings it to Los Angeles. The thing is, this is not fiction, it is true. The playwright: Jon Robin Baitz. The play: Other Desert Cities, which opens at the Mark Taper Forum on Nov. 28. The TV show on whose ruins the play was built: Brothers &amp; Sisters. But the story, like the play itself, is so much better, and deeper, in its details. Like Baitz's early work, The Substance of Fire, in which a hist ...
