‘The Sinner’: The 13 Craziest and Depraved Differences Between the Book and USA’s Disturbing Series

21 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the finale of USA Network’s “The Sinner” in addition to the book on which it was based.]

USA Network’s “The Sinner” became one of the surprise hits of the summer for its fascinating look at how hidden and unresolved traumas can manifest in disturbing or downright horrifying ways. The psychologically twisted story delved deeply into the past of a woman who seemed relatively normal and happy, but whose abuse at the hands of multiple people eventually led to her murdering a man without apparent provocation.

German crime author Petra Hammesfahr penned the 1999 novel on which “The Sinner” is based, and for the most part the central mysteries remained the same in both versions. The television adaptation naturally also had the expected number of cosmetic changes: Cora Bender is now Cora Tannetti, a song played on a cassette tape now plays on a phone, and the setting has moved from Germany to a small city in New York.

Battle of the Sexes movie review: totally ace

22 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… An essential history lesson with a smart smack of relevance for today (because feminism always has to be relitigated). It’s also warm, funny, and hugely entertaining. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan at all

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

That saying about those not remembering the past being condemned to repeat it? Of course it’s true… but sometimes it’s not an accident that the past gets forgotten. Sometimes the squashing of history — and the continuation of history into the present — is deliberate. Feminists know this: Women are constantly having to reinvent feminism, refight the same battles, because they don’t stay won. A brief moment of small triumph very quickly gets drowned out by major cultural pushback; women may savor victory only long enough »

Jessica Biel on ‘The Sinner’s’ Surprise Success and Season 2 Plans

20 September 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network’s “The Sinner,” the small-screen adaptation of Petra Hammesfahr’s novel, has become the surprise hit of the summer. The drama has dominated ratings since its debut, taking the No. 1 slot in Live+7 numbers.

Even executive producer and series star Jessica Biel has been taken aback by just how strong a reception the show has seen. “Generally it never occurred to me that we’d have such great ratings,” Biel admits to Variety.

Biel thinks the show’s combination of high-caliber creative team and unique subject matter is what has led to the success. “It felt like something we’d never seen before,” Biel says. “The characters were an absolute dream for a creative and challenging experiment, and with a woman at the front of it all – and kind of an unlikable woman – it seemed like a good challenge and it seemed like something new.”

'Battle of the Sexes' Review: Imagine Hillary and Trump Swinging Rackets

20 September 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What does a movie about a 1973 tennis exhibition match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs have to say to millennials when everyone knows the war between so-called women's libbers and male chauvinist pigs ended last century? Ha! Starring a top-form Emma Stone as King and a perceptively flamboyant Steve Carell as Riggs, Battle of the Sexes is not an overtly political movie; it's a blast about two tennis champions going over the top to make a point. But in speaking to the marginalized, the movie comments bluntly on the here and now. »

20 September 2017 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Battle of the Sexes, 2017.

Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton

Starring Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Alan Cumming, Elisabeth Shue, Austin Stowell, Natalie Morales, Jessica Mcnamee, Fred Armisen, Lewis Pullman, Martha MacIsaac, Mickey Sumner, Bridey Elliott, Eric Christian Olsen, Wallace Langham, and Matt Malloy

Synopsis:

The true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs.

Long before Mayweather vs McGregor was a sporting showdown for the ages; a one-on-one matchup that actually occupied societal landscape-altering overtones for both the close-minded present-day perspectives and future generations. Billie Jean King taking on openly proud male chauvinistic pig Bobby Riggs in a 1973 tennis match wasn’t just a dog and pony show built on ego and superiority alone, it represented the gender equality war (everything from raw talent to short-changing women when it comes to payday »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Battle Of The Sexes In St. Louis

19 September 2017 8:11 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the Battle Of The Sexes and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that »

“Battle of the Sexes” is a crowd pleasing re-do of the 2016 election

19 September 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Sometimes, a movie just hits at the right time. Battle of the Sexes, initially just a baity biopic of Billie Jean King and the moment where he path crossed with Bobby Riggs, is now about so much more. Obviously, it’s a comedic sports tale as well, but it’s also in many ways a re litigation of the 2016 Presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Apolitical audiences will enjoy things besides that, but if that’s still on your mind, you’ll be incredibly moved by this one. This week, Battle of the Sexes hits theaters and serves up (no pun intended) a real good time at the movies. The film is a look at a pivotal moment in the fight for equality between the genders. In 1973, ex-champ and hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was looking to get back in the spotlight, so he challenged women’s World »

17 September 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Love and equality reigned supreme at Regency Village Theatre Saturday night, where stars, athletes, and tennis fanatics alike united for the Los Angeles premiere of “Battle of the Sexes.”

“[I hope we] come to a place where it doesn’t matter what gender you are, it doesn’t matter what race you are, it doesn’t matter what your sexuality is — everyone is absolutely equal. That’s humanity and that’s just the truth,” said Emma Stone, who stars as tennis legend and equal rights activist Billie Jean King in the sports biopic.

Stone recalled the difficulty of portraying a real-life figure in “Battle of the Sexes” — her first time doing so in a feature film.
