One of my most-anticipated movies of 2019 is Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, her adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel and the follow-up to Gerwig’s terrific Lady Bird. Vanity Fair now has a first look at the movie, and why it looks like a period piece, Gerwig cautions that getting to the reality of the situation means acknowledging how the setting is “modern” for its characters: Gerwig shot on location in the book’s Massachusetts setting, where Alcott and her three sisters grew up. The director researched locations that the family could have inhabited, and …

Regardless of how you feel about the polarizing series finale and 'Uber A' reveal of Pretty Little Liars, there is no denying the show was a massive success for ABC Family (now Freeform).

There has perhaps never been a more spectacular piece of prestige camp than HBO's 2017 breakout sensation Big Little Lies, which nailed a pinpoint middle ground between delicious soapy drama and inspired character drama. Boasting an addictive pulpy mystery pulled from Liane Moriarty's novel, beachside real estate porn that would make Nancy Meyers blush, and the best ensemble of leading ladies on TV -- led by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz -- Big Little Lies countered addictive murder mystery and the savage theatrics of the upper class with searing insight into abuse, trauma, and …

At the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Emily Beecham won for best actress for her work Little Joe, a film that references Frankenstein and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Beecham is the first to admit that her scientist character stems from the rarified vision of Austrian auteur Jessica Hausner (Lourdes, Lovely Rita).

Given that the jury is permitted to only give one award per film--and Hausner is …
A background player in the Star Wars prequel films and a full-blown character on the Clone Wars television series, the striking and noble Shaak Ti was a fascinating addition to the universe’s canon. A member of the Togruta race, Shaak-Ti became a high-ranking member of the Jedi Council during the final years of the crumbling Galactic Republic and was elevated to General, personally overseeing the training of clone troops.

A devoted believer in the Jedi way, she was regarded as wise and patient. Below are ten facts about the powerful Force-user.
Big Little Lies is a powerful HBO series that has dazzled fans in just 7 episodes. We couldn't help but fall in love with Reese Witherspoon's Madeline and her "bulldog" approach. We instantly adored Shailene Woodley as Jane and rooted for her character's redemption since the beginning. Our hearts broke for Nicole Kidman's Celeste who, unfortunately, all too many women could relate to. We even grew to love Laura Dern's misunderstood role as Renata Klein, eye-patch and all!
