“Love @taylorswift13 for fighting 4 women’s safety in the workplace,” she wrote — standing in solidarity with the pop star.

Directed by Marianna Palka.
An ordinary suburban family descends into chaos when the mother suddenly and unexplainably takes on the psyche of a rabid dog.
There are few experiences like sitting through Marianna Palka’s violently off-beat Bitch. What hooks with a fascinating set-up very, very quickly loses itself in some of the most frenzied and uncomfortable editing this side of a half-forgotten Taken sequel, and winds up doing nothing short of totally defecating over every last drop of its potential. It’s easily one of the most grating 90-minute indies in recent memory; a talented lead and a powerful initial by-line, totally squandered.
This isn’t to say that Palka’s ideas are anything but solid; there’s a relatively firm central push towards the meaningful here, covering everything from gendered roles in the family, »

Ten months after the death of his 5-day-old son, Jamie King still doesn’t have the answers he’s so desperately seeking.
This week, U.K. police officially dropped their investigation into the death of the British actor’s son Benjamin, who died from severe brain damage less than a week after being born by emergency Caesarean section on May 5, 2016.
“Following a referral from the coroner in this case, we have reviewed the matter,” reads a statement from the Avon and Somerset Police Department obtained by People. “At this time, there is insufficient evidence to refer this matter to the »

One of the more emotionally taxing features to earn the classification of “midnight movie” — at least in this year’s Sundance program — fearless writer-director-actress Marianna Palka has crafted an bold, dark domestic comedy with Bitch. Based upon a strange case in her native Scotland, it centers on a woman who channels her spirit animal into a radical transformation.
Palka plays housewife Jill, a suicidal introvert raising four children seemingly alone in a generic suburbia. Her husband Bill (Jason Ritter), an empty suit at an unnamed firm, offers little help, spending time with a sexy co-worker Annabelle (Sol Rodriguez), ignoring his work and family obligations. To add insult to injury the kids seem love their absentee dad while torturing Jill with a daily crisis, from getting dressed to bed wetting accidents.
Haunted by a barking dog reminiscent of Summer of Sam, Jill undergoes a Kafka-esque metamorphosis, hiding in the basement, rolling around in her own feces, »
