History is the story of men: an unending chronological spiral of Kings, Emperors, Chieftans and Pharoahs all hellbent on spilling their rivals’ blood. This focus is understandable enough, but Phillipa Gregory, in her series of novels The Cousin’s War, shines light on the women behind the famous men: the various queens, dowagers and princesses who have their own vicious battles to fight.
The White Princess is the sequel to the BBC/Starz 2013 co-production The White Queen. Set during the War of the Roses, that miniseries followed Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beauford and Anne Neville, three noblewomen with their eye on the English Crown. That series concluded with the Battle of Bosworth Field, in which Henry Tudor defeated King Richard III and claimed the throne of England by right of conquest.
This picks up immediately afterwards, with the victorious Tudor family consolidating their claim
He's pretty certain he's earned the next notch on his belt, and that means a ride out of Berlin Station and back to the States.
A job in Washington, DC as the Deputy Director of the CIA.
In fact, he has an inside man who has been telling him if he can just pull off this latest operation, the job is his.
But if you've been watching, and I'm not gonna lie, we've been late to the game, you know his people are all over the place. Frost hasn't been doing his best.
A personal plug for Berlin Station: I just binge watched the first five episodes in one sitting. It's clever, it's flying under the radar and you have to think to watch it. The cast is absolute amazing and it's a lesson in subtleties.

The trailer will hopefully convince you on its own, possibly because of the cast, and possibly because of the quirky story, but if you aren’t immediately on board, don’t overlook the husband and wife writing/directing duo behind the camera.
Jocelyn Moorhouse directs from a script penned by her and her husband, P.J. Hogan, and you’re probably a fan of a fair amount of their work. The Dressmaker looks to be just the sort of film to capitalize on their talents.
Moorhouse doesn’t have a huge list of credits, but she did direct How to Make an American Quilt, which is a woefully undervalued film, especially if you look at specifically for the direction.
Hogan is much better known, writing and/or directing Muriel’s Wedding,
A new trailer for the film has surfaced today and gives us a good look at the Jocelyn Moorehouse-directed flick, as it follows Winslet’s titular dressmaker as she heads back home to Australia after fleeing from there several years earlier due to being accused of murder. With a cast that also includes Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Judy Davisand Caroline Goodall, things are certainly looking good for The Dressmaker.
From the footage shown here, Moorehouse’s film appears to be an energetic romp
