Best Beauty Looks from the SAG Awards 2016: Makeup & Hair for Your Next Night Out

30 January 2016 7:28 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If the celeb beauty looks from the 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards inspired an impromptu trip to Sephora, we won't judge. Barely-there makeup seemed to be the trend of the night, with stars like Amanda Peet and Kiernan Shipka proving that looking like you're wearing less is sometimes more. Celebs paired beautiful gowns with nude shadows, sheer lip shades and a peachy-pink flush. That isn't to say the drama wasn't alive and well—we're talking about an awards show red carpet here, people. Quantico star Priyanka Chopra made a bold statement with her fuschia lips, while Eva Longoria's smoky eye added to the overall sultry look. There were a lot of magical moments, »

Movie Review – Sleeping with Other People (2015)

23 January 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sleeping with Other People, 2015.

Written and Directed by Leslye Headland.

Starring Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Jason Mantzoukas, Adam Scott, Adam Brody, Natasha Lyonne, Katherine Waterston, Andrea Savage, Marc Blucas and Amanda Peet

Synopsis:

A good-natured womaniser and a serial cheater form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in.

Another week, another rom-com, at least that’s how it always seems to be throughout the many weeks of a cinematic year. But whilst the Nicholas Spark train keeps chugging along, it’s about time we had a romantic comedy that wasn’t all fairytale and schmaltz. Sleeping with Other People, produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman), is such a film to shake up the genre with its look at relationships and love in 2015/6, and if the age-old question of whether men all women can just be friends is still as ripe »

Watch: New Trailer For HBO's 'Togetherness' Season 2 Looks To The Future

8 January 2016 2:04 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You can keep Westeros, roll with Saul, and return to the wintry plains of the midwest — for me, my most anticipated show of the year takes place in the suburbs of Los Angeles and focuses on middle class people just trying to keep their shit together. "Togetherness" is back next month, and HBO has unveiled a new trailer that has me hooked already. Read More: 'Togetherness' Breaks Out The Big Guns In First Trailer For Season 2 The next batch of episodes will follow Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey) as they try to rekindle the spark in their relationship, which has puttered out from the stresses of marriage and children (and Michelle's attraction to John Ortiz's David). Meanwhile, both Brett’s friend, Alex (Steve Zissis), and Michelle’s sister, Tina (Amanda Peet), move in with them, causing the potential for friction to increase. "Togetherness" returns on February 21st. »

Watch: 'Togetherness' Season 2 Trailer Gives Us That Excited Feeling All Over Again

8 January 2016 12:37 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 10 Best New TV Shows of 2015 After a season of emotional exploration, "Togetherness" Season 1 ended with an unexpected cliffhanger. The foursome brought together by fate and circumstance in the very first episode was under a threat like never before, and we've been forced to wait nearly a year to find out what happens next. Technically, we're still waiting, but the new trailer for Season 2 makes that wait all the easier. In the above 90-second spot, Mark Duplass, Amanda Peet, Melanie Lynskey and Steve Zissis return to bring joy, heartbreak and insight to us all. Clocking in at just eight episodes and premiering in early 2015, "Togetherness" was one of those shows that was easy to overlook in favor of the big budget series that debuted over the summer or the hard-hitting dramas that premiered at the end of the year, but it only takes a few seconds for fans »
