According to 'Hotwives of Orlando' Creators, 'We Want to Feel Like We're Still in That Old Porn Theater' Hulu is ready to fill the void left by the Season 1 finale of Lifetime's "Bachelor" satire "UnREAL" with "Real Housewives" parody "The Hotwives of Las Vegas."

Sex and the Revolutionary Female Perspective in Marielle Heller's 'Diary of a Teenage Girl'

13 hours ago

Read More: Watch: First Trailer for Sundance Breakout 'The Diary of a Teenage Girl' Gets Honest About Female Sexuality Teenage girls are just as horny and confused about sex as teenage boys, but you wouldn’t know it from watching American movies. The coming-of-age canon is chock-full of teenage boys floundering in their newfound sexuality. You can find them striving to conquer their virginities, getting too drunk at house parties, test-driving their new cars or doing something in school hallways that’s vaguely recognizable as flirting. Where are the girls? They are, of course, the objects of the boys’ affection. Growing up, I watched a lot of movies. Like other young girls, I learned to view my sexuality through the male gaze. I learned that I was to be pursued; if I wasn’t, I was simply not desirable. I learned that I was supposed to be a sylph-like creature: light, »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

16 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

16 hours ago

"I thought after ‘Starlet,' I was going to get at least some money to make a much bigger film.”  That didn’t happen; in fact, just the opposite. But Sean Baker's fifth feature, “Tangerine,” is his most successful film yet. On this week’s episode of Indiewire Influencers, Baker shows us how he made "Tangerine” his biggest success, a journey that includes running from angry bus drivers, shooting on smartphones and a producer who doubled as wardrobe and continuity.  He also tells us why he’s turned down offers for an encore — and how he plans to keep making movies his own way (even though he admits TV might be a smarter move.)

How 'Follow That Bird,' The First 'Sesame Street' Film, Became a Beloved Classic After Nose-Diving at the Box Office

17 hours ago

Read More: The Man Inside the Bird: Caroll Spinney and Filmmakers Look Back on 45 Years of 'Sesame Street' 1985 was a good year to be a kid at the multiplex. The year’s biggest performer was "Back to the Future" — which earned over $210 million at the box office and is still a universally beloved franchise-starter, a tough trick that’s even harder to pull off these days — a time-traveling adventure film that came complete with a PG-rating, all the better to telegraph exactly who its audience was (basically, everyone). "Back to the Future" wasn’t a "kids movie" in the traditional sense, but it shaped millions of young moviegoers when it debuted in the summer of ’85, sealing its place as a perennial favorite for lots of children of the eighties.  Elsewhere, "The Goonies," "The Breakfast Club," "Teen Wolf" and re-issues of both "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and the animated "101 Dalmatians" all. »
