7 Women (1966)
Meet the Ladies of Bad Girls Club Season 17
Are you biting your nails yet? No prediction for this year's Best Actress shortlist can come without some degree of "I could be getting this very wrong!" nerves. We've been Oscar watching for a long time and it's genuinely never looked this open this late in the game (with the possible exception of 2003 but for nearly the opposite reason). If Best Actress is not a five-way lock up by now (and it often is) it's usually at least settled but for a minor battle between two women for the "just happy to be nominated" fifth spot. This year is different. Seven women remain strong and precursor supported and virtually any combination of five names seems possible as long as you include both Emma Stone (with the reliable boost of leading a Best Picture frontrunner) and Natalie Portman (with the reliable boost of Oscar's deep-deep love for mimicry

Deal marks a significant move, given the notorious difficulty of market penetration in China for foreign TV productions. It also strengthens Globo’s close relationship with CCTV, which previously acquired further Globo programming such as classic telenovela “Isaura-Slave Girl” and mini-series “Seven Women.”
“Side by Side” is expected to debut in August, dubbed in Chinese, reaching China, Hong Kong and Macao.
“Re-investing in a Globo’s drama, CCTV recognizes the high quality of our production and its ability to reach different cultures around the world,” said Raphael Correa Netto, Globo executive director of International Business.
“This new licensing in China proves that Globo continues to grow on Asia.

Of the five releases (three standalone releases and two box sets), two of these are new additions to the collection. Sidney Lumet's 1957 acclaimed courtroom drama 12 Angry Men and Krzysztof Kieslowski's amazing Three Colors Trilogy. This is being released as a three-disc box set comprised of all three films (Blue, White and Red) which not only serve to symbolize the French flag, but they also represent the tenets of the French revolution (liberty, equality and fraternity).
The other three releases provide some much requested upgrades to some of Criterion's most beloved DVD releases. First, there is Jean Renoir's The Rules of the Game, a French gem from 1939 that is equal parts critique and comedy. Next up

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Blue, White and Red receive the Criterion treatment this November.
Legendary Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy, a boldly cinematic trio of stories about love and loss, was a defining event of the art house boom of the 1990s. The films — Blue (1993), White (1993) and Red (1994) — were named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality and fraternity.

Set in Paris, Warsaw and Geneva, Blue, White, and Red (Kieślowski’s final film) range from tragedy to drama to comedy. They follow a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions.
Marked by intoxicatingly lush cinematography and memorable performances by such actors as Juliette Binoche (Chocolat), Julie Delpy (Guilty Hearts), Irène Jacob (Beyond the Clouds) and
