From Bushwick to Hollywood: what the Girls movie needs to get right

22 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lena Dunham is keen to bring Hannah and her hipster pals to the big screen, but she needs to be wary. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker ...

If there was one lesson to be learned from watching 2010’s vapid Sex and the City sequel, it’s that we as a society have failed and need to burn everything to the ground and start again. If we could scrape another key learning, it’s to be incredibly wary about adapting any other much-loved HBO shows into inflated big-screen blockbusters.

Before we get this summer’s multiplex take on the “bros before hoes except when the hoes are bangin’” comedy Entourage, Lena Dunham has expressed an ambition to turn her Brooklyn-based show Girls into a movie in the nearish future.

How Lena Dunham is Launching an Empire for Comedic Women

21 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lena Dunham needs to change her outfit. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the star and executive producer of “Girls” slips out of a hip pantsuit from her Variety cover shoot, and dons a comfortable jacket. The denim coat is as colorful as Dunham herself, the back festooned with ’90s pop-culture icons (a Furby) and other whimsical objects, like a pair of women’s underwear with an anarchist punk saying, “No Masters,” in pink lettering. “I think it’s my best fashion garment,” she says, confiding that she purchased it from one of her Instagram followers. “You may notice it’s covered in aggressive female symbols. My boyfriend tried to steal it, and I was like, ‘Back off!’ ”

Dunham, 28, isn’t just the face of “Girls,” she’s also an out-and-proud feminist — a trait passed down from her mother, photographer Laurie Simmons — and a practitioner of “Lean In,” the Sheryl Sandberg »

19 April 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Yes, yes, Game of Thrones is all about climbing to power and ruling the land. You play or you die. Power resides only where men believe it resides. Yadda yadda.

But here’s a salient question: After watching what happens to khaleesi/mhysa/queen Daenerys in this week’s episode, for the love of the old gods and the new, who would want such an insane responsibility?

We’ve seen corrupt leaders during our time in the seven kingdoms. Their blatant grabs at power, coupled with their indefensible deeds, have meant that we haven’t felt that bad when they »

Sarah Jessica Parker has a lot to celebrate.
