2017’s Best Documentaries By and About Women

Step

A workers’ rights activist, a movie star-turned-inventor, and a retiring prima ballerina are just a few of the characters at the center of our favorite documentaries by and about women this year. These films — and the women they chronicle — inspired and educated us. They also offered something that’s often ignored in history books: a female perspective. In short, they should be essential viewing.

Chavela” — Directed by Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi

Chavela” directors Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi said it best: Chavela Vargas was a “badass butch.” There was a lot that could have prevented the singer from finding success. She began performing as a homeless runaway. She was also a lesbian and refused to closet herself in a time when homosexuality was considered an illness at best, a crime at worst. Vargas lived her entire life the way she wanted, no matter what — and thank god for that.

The Camera Moves #8

“Strange that the mind will forget so much of what only this moment is passed, and yet hold clear and bright the memory of what happened years ago, of men and women long since dead…Can I believe my friends all gone when their voices are still a glory in my ears? No. And I will stand to say no again, for they remain a living truth within my mind.”—Huw Morgan, How Green Was My Valley Memory is a singular fascination for Terence Davies. His films are structured not around a traditional narrative, but the seemingly inane trivialities that stick out in a person’s recollection of their lives. They are punctuated not by rousing speeches or any obvious character development, but by things like a lesson on different kinds of erosion, an uneasy moment of sexual guilt in church and a quote from a film.

Billie Lourd Stuns at the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Premiere, Plus More Glam Looks: Pics!

Now that's how you slay a red carpet!

Billie Lourd stepped out at the world premiere for Star Wars: The Last Jedi looking regal and glamorous in a floor length, sparkling silver Tom Ford gown. She kept accessories minimal, and rocked a high, braided hairstyle, slightly reminiscent of a look her mom, the late Carrie Fisher, wore as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

The premiere was presumably bittersweet for Lourd, given it's the first Star Wars premiere without Fisher, who died last December after undergoing cardiac arrest.

But Lourd wasn't the only star serving looks and doing Leia proud on the red carpet. 

Daisy Ridley took the idea of celestial glam and heightened it in a stunning sequined gown by Monse, adorned with silver stars, and paired with sky high metallic heels.

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season
Mother-daughter relationships have always been the stuff of great drama. And the Oscars are no exception. Three decades ago the “Moonstruck” acting duo Olympia Dukakis and Cher both won gold for playing a strong-willed New York Italian mother and her feisty daughter. Six years later, as a mute Scottish teacher and her de facto interpreter in New Zealand, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin repeated that twofer triumph with Jane Campion’s “The Piano.”

Onscreen mother-daughter conflict has resulted in other dual Academy Award nominations: selfless Barbara Stanwyck tricked Anne Shirley into marrying rich in tearjerker “Stella Dallas” (1937); Meryl Streep’s big mouth inspired a rebellious Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” (2013); Piper Laurie was literally crucified by Sissy Spacek in “Carrie” (1976). At the start of this decade, Mo’Nique won an Oscar portraying the sexually abusive parent of fellow “Precious” nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Back in 1984, both Shirley MacLaine and

‘Ahs’ Director Barbara Brown on Billie Lourd’s Toughest Episode of ‘Cult’ (Exclusive)
Warning: This article contains spoilers for the eighth episode of American Horror Story: Cult.

Cult, the seventh installment of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology series, American Horror Story, continues to be one of the most creepy and chilling seasons yet as the story of an Ohio town falling under the guise and delusions of a psychopath after the fallout of the 2016 presidential election continues to unfold in unexpected ways. And episode eight (“Winter of Our Discontent”), directed by Barbara Brown, is no exception, when Kai’s (Evan Peters) female followers -- most notably, Beverly (Adina Porter) and Ivy (Alison Pill) -- become disillusioned by his leadership after they're forced to cook and serve his growing group of male supporters in a very Handmaid’s Tale-like setup. Later, Kai proposes that Samuels (Colton Haynes) impregnate Winter (Billie Lourd) with the messiah, resulting in a bizarre threesome and an attempted rape by Samuels as he tries to prove his
