Sarah Jessica Parker turns 50: 6 best roles from Sex and the City star

25 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.

Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »

Experiment This: Almereyda Revisits Classic Social Psych Progenitor

American filmmaker Michael Almereyda brings to the screen a pseudo-biopic on one of the more famous social psychologists, Stanley Milgram, whose name should, at the very least, rumble through the memory bank of anyone who has ever taken a Psychology course. But Experimenter, much like academia, is concerned mostly with Milgram’s famed early 1960s obedience experiments, which yielded disturbing results about easily conditioned human beings that society at large was not quite ready to accept, leading to Milgram being treated as something of a pariah within his own academic community. Filmed with a desaturated palette and utilizing props and set backdrops to inflect rather than convey period, Almereyda’s created a cold, clinical portrait of a man whose own familial background informed his timely social experiment, one that’s been referenced and recreated as a tenet of understanding unnerving truths as concerns human behavior. »
