‘Genius’ Producer Accuses Dustin Hoffman of Sexually Harassing Her in 1991 (Exclusive)

‘Genius’ Producer Accuses Dustin Hoffman of Sexually Harassing Her in 1991 (Exclusive)
Wendy Riss Gatsiounis was a struggling playwright working a temp job in New York City in 1991 when she got what she hoped would be her big break. Her play “A Darker Purpose” had been given a staged reading at the Public Theater, and she had scheduled a meeting with Dustin Hoffman and “Tootsie” screenwriter Murray Schisgal to discuss adapting it into a feature film for Hoffman to star in. “It was a huge thing,” she told Variety.

But, Riss Gatsiounis said, the two meetings that took place at the Rockefeller Center office of Hoffman’s Punch Productions led to confusion and self-doubt after Hoffman allegedly propositioned her and attempted to persuade her to leave the office and accompany him to a store in a nearby hotel. Riss Gatsiounis was in her 20s; Hoffman was 53.

A spokesperson for Hoffman declined to comment. Schisgal told Variety in a statement: “Dustin Hoffman and I took many meetings with writers and playwrights

"Somebody is up to something..." Fox Searchlight has revealed the first official trailer for Wes Anderson's latest film, a stop-motion adventure titled Isle of Dogs. Set in Japan, the story follows a boy's odyssey in search of his dog.

How 8 Emmys Categories Are Celebrating Women Behind the Scenes on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Stranger Things’ and More
When it comes to the Emmys, gender representation has always been a bit of a struggle behind the scenes. In non-acting categories, especially when it comes to technical awards, there’s a lack of female representation that’s persisted throughout the industry. But this year, there are bright spots to be found.

This is not a complete representation of all of the year’s nominees — there were many other female nominees whose work was noteworthy — but here is a selection of the strides women made in 2017, often in categories largely dominated by men.

The 20 Best Movie Endings of the 21st Century

  • Indiewire
A movie is only as good as its ending. At the very least, that’s certainly how it can feel right after you finish watching one. Of course, each film demands a different kind of finale, and it would be futile to try and generically describe what makes for a “good” one — you know one when you see it. Some stories are best served by ending with a jarring twist that makes you reconsider everything you’ve seen before it. Others require the perfect note of ambiguity, or that immortal line of dialogue to help seal the deal. Every great film ends on its own terms, but all of them do so in a way that ultimately makes the whole experience impossible to forget. Here are the 20 best movie endings of the 21st Century.

Note: Needless to say, there’s a five-alarm spoiler alert in effect for the rest of this article.
