In August of 2006, a group of African American lesbian women went out for a night on the town in NYC's Greenwich Village area, a well-known historical landmark and haven for the LGBTQ community... or so these women thought. Proud spirits quickly vanished after an instance of homophobic street harassment was initiated by an older man. The threats quickly escalated, resulting in the attempted strangling of two women and then the stabbing of the perpetrator. Although ... Read More
We interviewed Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm, the writer/director of Obvious Child, a film about much more than abortion stigma. This new modern-day, feminist flick not only reconstitutes the traditional rom-com, but its underrated content has also sparked the kind of movement and dialogue we've all been waiting for.  If you haven't seen the film, there ARE spoilers in this interview, so beware. Otherwise, ENJOY!  I have to ... Read More
Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), thirty-something struggling actor, father, and husband, never really made the jump into adulthood.  He spends his days auditioning for role after role, even though he hasn’t gotten a part since his role in the oft-mentioned ‘dandruff commercial’ of times past.  When Aidan’s father (Mandy Patinkin) reports that his cancer has metastasized and he’s running out of time, Aidan finds himself confronted ...

Violette, the latest film by Martin Provost, stars the brilliant Emmanuelle Devos as revolutionary feminist author Violette Leduc, and Sandrine Kiberlain as the infamous writer and social theorist, Simone de Beauvoir. Presented by Adopt Films, the drama delves into the complexities and at times, emotional turmoil, of Leduc. The film captures her fascination and intense attachment for de Beauvoir, and the conviction de Beauvoir feels to share her unrivaled honesty ... Read More
I only know two people who had the gall to admit to me that they didn't like Bridesmaids, and they're both dead to me. Just kidding. It was awkward though, when I told them that I got Rebel Wilson's character's “Mexican drinking worm” tattoo, NOT for free, as an everlasting tribute to the film's band of wisecracking ladies and they were totally unimpressed. Whatever, losers. While they probably won't be too excited about the news that the ... Read More
In the summer of 2006, seven young women violently defended themselves from an anti-gay bigot in New York City's Greenwich Village. Or so they claim. The male perpetrator, or victim depending on which version of the story you read, says he was unreasonably attacked by a gang of angry lesbians. Four of the seven were eventually convicted, with two facing pending sentencing appeals.  Inspired by the headlines, the new documentary Out in the Night tells the ... Read More
The two circles featuring the cult classic movie The Room, and James Franco’s baby brother Dave overlap and create a venn diagram with a middle space entitled “Things I Love.” This is why I was so excited to hear that the actor my friends and I affectionately refer to as “baby Franco” will be playing Greg Sestero in the (stay with me now) movie version of Sestero’s book about his experience filming the movie The Room, titled The ...

This documentary is the perfect way to fully educate Americans on one of the landmark political shifts of the 20th century. The Case Against 8 follows the two gay couples chosen to make the case to overturn Proposition 8, California’s ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage. The two women, Kris Perry and Sandra Stier, and the two men, Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, endure experiences that would tear many marriages limb from limb as their quest to wed ... Read More
This fun new film opens today, June 6th! Written and directed by indie darling Michael Tully, Ping Pong Summer will charm your socks off and make you yearn for summer camp, popsicles, old school rhymes, and the feel-good style of 1985. The colors are crazy, the clothes are boss, and emotions (and hormones) run high. The narrative centers around Rad Miracle (played by Marcello Conte), a 13-year-old kid whose life is built around his obsessions. Namely, ... Read More
Opens today in theaters! The elevator pitch for Obvious Child is startlingly simple: Donna Stern (Jenny Slate), a 20-something comedian nursing a broken heart, has a drunken one-night stand with a stranger, gets knocked up, and has an abortion. The end. But the experience of watching the film is much more than the sum of its parts. Carrying the distinction of being one of the first ever pro-choice comedies, Obvious Child—which was a Sundance favorite—is also ... Read More
