Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde. It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters, »

Lovers of "Marnie," Alfred Hitchcock's 1964 psychosexual pas de deux with Tippi Hedren that placed weirdly high on a recent BBC critics' poll of the best movies ever, are in for a treat at this year's Vienna fest. The quintessential Hitchcock blonde gets her very own tribute, titled Choreography of Desire, including screenings of that film, "The Birds" and her recently re-released film maudit "Roar," co-starring her daughter Melanie Griffith.

Portrait of Jenny: Heigl’s Performance Buoys Social Issue Context
There are several aspects to admire in Mary Agnes Donoghue’s sophomore directorial effort, Jenny’s Wedding, her first foray into directing since the 1991 Melanie Griffith film, Paradise. It’s most improbable facets are actually its assets, namely a warm central performance from Katherine Heigl as a lesbian who comes out to her wanly conservative nuclear family by announcing her marriage. A film such as this one could’ve had the opportunity to make an indelible mark on the American indie landscape had it been released seven to ten years prior, when the United States was coming out from underneath the shadows of the Bush Regime and the Lgbt community was in dire need of positive cinematic depictions meant to inspire hope in the eventuality of equality from the likes of trending, A-list actors at their peak.

Read More: Will You Donate to See Katherine Heigl Marry a Woman in New Indie From 'Beaches' Writer? Mary Agnes Donoghue's credits are star-studded: They include "Beaches," starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey; "White Oleander," starring Michelle Pfieffer and Renee Zellweger; "Deceived," starring Goldie Hawn; and "Veronica Guerrin" starring Cate Blanchett. Donoghue also wrote and directed "Paradise," starring then-married couple Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. But that was 25 years ago. Now she's back in the director's chair with "Jenny's Wedding," a comedic drama about gay marriage, which she also wrote and produced. The feature tells the story of Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl), who proposes to her girlfriend (Alexis Bledel) and then has to explain to her conservative parents why she is marrying her "roommate." In addition to the leading ladies, Katherine Heigl and Alexis Bledel, the film »

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are reportedly just about to mark the official end of their 18-year-marriage. According to TMZ, the exes have both signed the necessary legal documents to finalize their divorce. (E! News can confirm that Griffith's attorney Laura Wasser dropped something off at the L.A. County Courthouse Friday; as of Tuesday, however, the court had yet to process the "judgment received," so we cannot confirm its specific contents.) Reps for Griffith, 57, and Banderas, 54, did not immediately respond to E! News' request for comment. Now, though, it's reportedly just a matter of a judge signing off on the documents to finalize the former couple's »
Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have taken the last step to end their marriage, by signing documents making their divorce official. Court records show both signed the necessary legal docs to become officially single after 18 years of marriage. Melanie was asking for full custody of their daughter, Stella, and also wanted spousal support. The custody issue resolved itself when Stella turned 18 last September. A judge still needs to sign the docs to make everything official »

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have signed their divorce papers a little over a year after the superstars announced last June that they were separating after 19 years of marriage. TMZ obtained court records of the documents on Tuesday, July 21, showing that both parties have signed the papers to proceed with their divorce. A judge still needs to sign in order to finalize the split, but the site speculated that it would happen within a few days. This marked Griffith's fourth marriage and divorce, and Banderas' second.

"Something Wild," Jonathan Demme’s screwball thriller from 1986, makes good on its title and then some. Jeff Daniels plays a mild-mannered IRS agent caught in the orbit of a flaky small time thief played by Melanie Griffith. The film proceeds as a funny, quirky rom-com á la Howard Hawks’ Bringing Up Baby until the arrival of Griffith’s sociopathic ex-husband, played by Ray Liotta, when things take an abrupt turn toward the dark side. The movie’s eclectic soundtrack, a Demme trademark, reinforces the film’s roller coaster mood swings. »

"Trainwreck," the new Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow movie, examines the plight of one snarly woman as she exits her familiar world of sexual freedom and hangovers for a detour into serious romance. Though several eye-popping cameos and supporting performances buttress the film, Schumer's performance is the acting triumph of "Trainwreck." Without her shaky conscience and burgeoning sense of fulfillment, the movie's conventional story might feel staid. Thankfully, it's anything but. Schumer's performance marks a welcome addition to cinema's long line of strident, hilarious female protagonists. We're celebrating that lineage with a list: the 20 best female-driven comedies ever. Some are old and some are new, but all are marked by a degree of cosmopolitan fun and nerviness -- and the occasional slap from Cher. 20. "How to Marry a Millionaire" We remember Lauren Bacall as a glamor girl with a damning grimace, but let's start revising that narrative to include her chops as a comic force. »

Solid performances and decent intentions are all on the guest list for “Jenny’s Wedding,” a sweetly played yet overly on-the-nose dramedy about a lesbian who finally comes out to her sheltered Cleveland family after deciding to marry her longtime partner. Katherine Heigl brings both ferocity and vulnerability to the role of a favored child discovering the courage to be herself in front of her parents and siblings, but while the fine cast teases out glimmers of nuance here and there, Mary Agnes Donoghue’s film plays like a series of hand-holding growth exercises for closed-minded conservatives, and relies too heavily on its tying-the-knot finale for both dramatic momentum and emotional closure. A name-y cast and fortuitously topical timing will ensure some audience exposure for this July 31 IFC release.
Keeping your characters in the dark for too long while tipping off the audience too early can be a risky strategy, »

My original plan was to publish a list of my ten most anticipated films screening at the Fantasia Film Festival but considering the incredible line-up this year, I find it near impossible to narrow it down to only ten. So instead I’ve decided to select one movie a day, or better yet, the movie that you should choose if you only had time for one.
Day 1. Tangerine
Christmas Eve in Tinseltown!
If you’re not familiar with director Sean Baker start taking notes. The man is a genius and one of the best indie American filmmakers working today. In Starlet, Baker spun an unlikely friendship between a young porn actress and an old lady in the San Fernando Valley. In Prince of Broadway, he chronicled the struggles of a hustler balancing fatherhood while working in New York’s wholesale district. Baker’s work avoids labels by refusing to adhere »

No wonder John Mellencamp couldn't let Meg Ryan go! Making her first official public appearance since the 41st Annual Chaplin Award Gala in April 2014, the French Kiss actress looked trés chic at Paris Fashion Week Monday. Ryan attended the Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2015-16 show and was seated in the front row beside model/actress Farida Khelfa. Ryan wore a form-fitting dress and understated makeup. The actress, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2009's Serious Moonlight, next stars in the movie Ithaca, which she also directed. Based on the 1943 novel The Human Comedy by William Saroyan, the film stars her son, Jack Quaid, plus Tom Hanks, Melanie Griffith, Christine Nelson »
