26 August 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Patricia Arquette hasn’t lost her passion for women’s rights and wage equality since she famously ended her Oscar acceptance speech last year for “Boyhood” with a call for “wage equality and equal rights for women.” The actress recently executive produced Kamala Lopez’s new documentary, “Equal Means Equal,” which will screen across the country on Friday to coincide with Women’s Equality Day. “I’ve seen a lot more heightened awareness and talk about the issues,” Arquette told TheWrap, explaining her involvement in a film that outlines a host of women’s issues, including equal pay, rape, child prostitution and pregnancy rights. »

Patricia Arquette Condemns ‘Widespread’ Rape Culture Amid Nate Parker Controversy

25 August 2016 7:14 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

As part of her ongoing campaign for gender equality, Patricia Arquette is shining a spotlight on “widespread” rape in American society that, in her opinion, exposes a broken system. “Why are states spending money to prosecute kids spray-painting a wall or a gram of weed, over catching a rapist?” the Oscar-winning actress told TheWrap. “There’s a real deep bias and it goes on throughout our whole judicial system.” When it comes to “The Birth of a Nation” director Nate Parker, who was acquitted of rape charges 17 years ago when he was a student at Penn State but who has. »

‘Equal Means Equal’ Trailer Tries to Crash Through the ‘Brick Wall’ of American Gender Discrimination – Watch

22 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The laws that I thought were going to protect me, didn’t.”

Kamala Lopez’s searing documentary “Equal Means Equal” aims to examine how women are treated in the United States today, zeroing in on all manner of issues related to gender discrimination, from workplace harassment to the wage gap, domestic violence to sexual assault.

The film uses both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases to “uncover how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues and…reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.”

Equal Means Equal” features a number of luminaries talking on the subject, including Patricia Arquette and Gloria Steinem. The film had its debut at the Traverse City Film Festival last month. »

You used to be cool, you used to be cool, you used to be cool.

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. Christian Slater has always been cool. As a kid, I totally looked up to him. I first saw him in Heathers, where he blew me away as a teenage Jack Nicholson. Everyone had a Jack Nicholson imitation back then, but only Christian Slater embodied his rebellious spirit (and, yes, mimicking his nasally, wise ass voice). He was the smarmiest teenager in school cafeteria history. When Pump Up the Volume came out, I was a high school student, and I didn't buy any of what the movie was selling. Even then, I could hear Hollywood execs saying, "This is what the kids, like, right? Cool disc jockeys!" But Christian Slater was charismatic enough to make it work. But then came one of the coolest movies ever made, True Romance, solidifying »

Newswire: Patricia Arquette and Rainn Wilson to rock some bad ‘80s hair in new comedy

15 August 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

A new ’80s comedy is going to put a serious crimp in Patricia Arquette’s style—according to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar winner has just signed on to star in Colette Burson’s Permanent. The comedy is set in the ’80s, and will follow a family in the American South that’s just obsessed with hair. Arquette will presumably play the well-coiffed (or not) matriarch; she’s joined in the cast by Rainn Wilson, who’s already declared his excitement about working with the Boyhood star and Burson while “wearing a toupée and dressing exactly like my dad circa 1982.”

Wilson previously sported a questionable ’80s ’do in 2008’s The Rocker, but Arquette’s rarely had an onscreen bad hair day (not even in A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors). Michael Greene (Batteries Not Included, Return Of The Killer Tomatoes, we think?) and newcomer Kira McLea ...

The Secret Agent review – worryingly one-dimensional

17 July 2016 11:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

So much is lost from Conrad’s strange, complex and deeply ironic novel. This adaptation reduces it to a psychological thriller – and proves the curse of TV

It is a brave screenwriter who takes on Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent (BBC1, Sunday), which film critic Roger Ebert called “perhaps the least filmable novel he ever wrote”. Ebert made that remark in a review – a fairly devastating one accompanied by the dreaded one star – of the 1996 film version, directed by Christopher Hampton and with an all-star cast including Bob Hoskins as the eponymous agent Verloc, Patricia Arquette as his comely wife Winnie, and Christian Bale as her half-witted brother Stevie.

Ebert’s grouse was that the novel (written in 1907) is a “character study”, but “the movie deals more with externals and, since there are few of any interest, it drags and finally sighs and expires”. The solution, if that’s the word, »

Mickey Rourke’s Face

Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City (2005) is playing on Mubi June 18 - July 17, 2016 in the United States. Sin CityWhat happens when a performer’s face changes? This very question animated a bewildering piece by Owen Gleiberman last month in Variety, wherein Gleiberman—a man—pondered whether Renée Zellweger’s slightly aged, maybe plastic surgery-tinkered visage made her an entirely different performer. He sustained this mediation on the basis of a whopping three-minute trailer for Bridget Jones’ sBaby, hoarily declaring his good intentions to combat Hollywood’s sexist machinations at his piece’s onset. Yet, in spite of this pretense, his approach exhibited an astonishing lack of stringency, ultimately scrutinizing Zellweger along the same sexist lines he claimed to bemoan. Like others, I find this storied practice of male critics inspecting women’s faces pretty odious. If male critics have gotten craftier than such forefathers as John Simon (who, »
