The new film, based on Rebecca Skloot's 2010 book of the same name, explores the story of Henrietta Lacks and the immortal cell line that is derived from samples taken from her without her knowledge.

In 1951, Lacks had a biopsy taken from her cervix after giving birth. Doctors took two samples while treating a malignant epidermoid carcinoma, one of cancerous cells and one healthy. The cancerous cells became the base of an immortal cell line known as HeLa, which has been used across the world for medical research.

Lacks died at age 31 the same year, but it wasn't until decades later that her daughter, Deborah »

How an Old ‘Oprah’ Tape Brought Down Trump’s Labor Nominee

16 February 2017 11:51 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It took Politico’s Marianne Levine and Timothy Noah more than two months digging through around 90 “Oprah” episodes on two different coasts to finally strike gold. But when they did, it led to the first Trump administration Cabinet nominee to withdraw from consideration. Andrew Puzder — CEO of Cke Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. — was firmly on track to become Labor Secretary until Levine uncovered a 27-year-old “Oprah” episode about high-profile domestic violence victims, which featured his ex-wife Lisa Fierstein.

Did Oprah Kill Andrew Puzder’s Labor Secretary Nomination?

15 February 2017 4:55 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

At the beginning of this week, fast food executive Andrew Puzder looked firmly on track to become Labor Secretary for the Trump administration. Nominated by Donald Trump on Dec. 8, he had weathered criticism from Democrats on issues ranging from the minimum wage to his hiring of an undocumented domestic worker. But Republicans largely defended him, and it seemed likely he’d be confirmed by the Senate, like all of Trump’s prior cabinet nominees. Then on Wednesday afternoon, Pudzer  — CEO of the Cke Restaurants fast-food chain, owner of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. — withdrew his name from consideration. What happened? »

When I first screened Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life last November — and marveled at Lauren Graham‘s career-best performance — I was certain her long, inexplicable Emmy nomination drought was about to come to an end.

Now, three months later, my confidence is disappearing faster than Emily Gilmore’s patience for bulls–t. The reason? The Lead Actress in a Limited Series/Movie category has emerged as the year’s most insanely competitive race. 

Like, it’s a total clusterfrak.

‘The Collection’ Review: Amazon’s Sumptuous Fashion Drama Over-Accessorizes With Intrigue and Mansplaining

10 February 2017 11:14 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Fashion has the power to transform us. It’s not so much about who you are but who you want to be. Even those who hate fashion make a statement with what they wear, if only to say to the world, ‘I don’t give a damn.’”

Such are the wise words by fashion house owner Paul Sabine (Richard Coyle). If only Amazon‘s “The Collection” actually heeded them.

Set in Paris 1947, the atelier Paul Sabine House is tasked by a wealthy and powerful investor with restoring Paris as the haute couture capital of the world. The wartime German occupation of the city, however, has cast a long shadow, and our Parisians are having a hard time shaking off that oppression, the rationing mindset and past decisions.
