Jon Hamm, Catherine Keener and others can't move past 'Nostalgia's' treacly musings
LATimes - 4 days
Stuff has meaning — that’s the not-quite-animating idea behind “Nostalgia,” a day-old news flash of a drama, delivered in weepy headlines posing as dialogue. An ensemble led by Jon Hamm, Ellen Burstyn and Catherine Keener finds unguarded moments of life, if not insight, as people grappling with...

Haunted By ‘Get Out’ -- But Not Because It’s A Horror Film
Huffington Post - 11 months
After watching the movie “Get Out” (only once unlike several friends who’ve already seen it 3 times), my eyes have been wide open. I am highly attuned and alert...and also confused. Have I, like the characters in the film, ever said incredibly offensive things to people of color in an effort to demonstrate just how “cool” and “liberated” I am? I certainly hope not, but the feeling I have now is that you can never be entirely too sure. The current box office hit has been labeled a “suspense” and “horror” film and is very reminiscent of The Stepford Wives in its depiction of mysterious characters who remind us of people we’ve actually known. Get Out highlights a nationwide problem: how White people regard and treat African Americans. Sometimes Caucasians go overboard in their attempts at flattery, just as the parents (played by Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) of Rose (Alison Williams) do while welcoming her dark-skinned black boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to the family ho...

'Get Out' Is The Type Of Movie The Oscars Should Pay Attention To

Jordan Peele’s horror film is expected to net another $26 million this go-round, remarkable for a genre known for steep second-weekend revenue declines. One week alone cannot presage a seismic shift, but the coupled victories for “Moonlight” and “Get Out” send a ...

HBO'S 'Show Me A Hero' Deserves An Emmy For Illuminating What Can Be Done About Racism In Donald Trump's America
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The Emmy awards will take place on September 18 as Hillary Clinton nears her crescendo, hammering Trump for the racism at the heart of his campaign. From the start, Trump has used the fear of Hispanic immigration and diversity to divide whites and people of color. So it's unfortunate that David Simon's Show Me a Hero, one of the best limited series shows in television history, which brilliantly focused on the type of racism at the heart of Trump's campaign, failed to even get a nomination for an Emmy Award. This widely praised docudrama, drawing on the experiences of real people, goes deep into the heart of an American city, Yonkers, describing the racial tensions that divided that New York suburb over housing segregation. The six-part series reveals black and white residents struggling to overcome their mutual suspicions and prejudices and then succeeding to take steps to reduce the consequences of years of racial discrimination by landlords, lenders, and city officials. It'...

Imogen Poots Is 'Very, Very Happy' In Her Career, So It's Time You Know Her Name
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
For Imogen Poots, 2015 marked a new beginning. Across the better part of a decade, she'd scored noteworthy roles in movies like "28 Weeks Later," "Solitary Man" and "Jane Eyre" without ever quite transcending emerging-actress limbo. But as the 2010s inch forward, Poots has always been on the cusp of breaking through -- with the vampire horror-comedy "Fight Night," the rowdy bromance "That Awkward Moment" and the noisy Aaron Paul racing vehicle "Need for Speed."  But it's the movies that have struggled to secure much shelf life where Poots has found her true calling. She played Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener's daughter in 2011's "A Late Quartet" before starring as Linda Keith, one of Jimi Hendrix's lovers, in the under-appreciated 2013 biopic "Jimi: All Is By My Side" and as an earnest call-girl-turned-Broadway-hopeful in Peter Bogdanovich's 2015 screwball comedy "She's Funny That Way." This year alone, she's appeared in the Sundance drama "Frank & Lola," Terrence...

Olivia Wilde Received Some Of Her Best Hollywood Wisdom From Tilda Swinton
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Olivia Wilde has worked with Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and Jon Favreau -- names that would appeal to anyone in Hollywood with an ounce of sense. You'll notice they have one thing in common beyond great films: penises. Where are the women in Wilde's moviemaking life? Few and far between, as it turns out. Her new film, "Meadowland," in which she and Luke Wilson play a couple reeling from the loss of their child, is one of the few times a woman has steered a project with which Wilde is involved. That includes one season on "The O.C." and five on "House." She's optimistic about the attention being paid to equality in Hollywood, however, partly thanks to her collaboration with Reed Morano, who shot and directed "Meadowland." Morano also shot five episodes of Wilde's forthcoming '70s-set rock 'n' roll series "Vinyl," which premieres on HBO in January and is written by "Sopranos" and "Wolf of Wall Street" scribe Terence Winter. The Huffington Post sat down with Wilde for a deep dive o...

Women Dating After 50: Are We In A No-Man's Land?
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
I received this email on my site from a reader asking for advice about women dating in their 50s: I am approaching 50, and just over one year separated from my husband. As I look forward and begin to think about the possibility of future relationships, I can see that dating over 50 might be difficult. What I notice is that I don't seem to hear many happy stories about people (like me) who were married 20 to 25 years, got divorced, and then found happiness/marriage, etc again. It seems to me that a 50ish woman is somewhere in no-man's land for a future relationship. I may be generalizing but do you see the same thing? As I also approach 50, I agree with her no-man's land comment in many ways. Fifty isn't really young, but it's not old either. I have had some issues while shopping for clothes in recent years, because all the clothing out there either seems too young or too old for me. I feel like some young people treat me older, which seems odd. I meet people in their 50s, who...
