StreamFix: Movie classics on Netflix written by women over 40

21 April 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep, who is officially a genius angel sent from a better dimension, is funding a screenwriting lab for women over 40. The initiative aims to create opportunities for that contingent, and it'll be run by New York Women in Film and Television and Iris, a collective of women filmmakers. Because this idea is so brilliant, we'll toast a bunch of 40+-year-old female screenwriters whose works are available on Netflix now. The Kids are All Right (Lisa Cholodenko) Aside from the fact that "The Kids are All Right" feels like a prime James L. Brooks feature, the 2010 family drama gives you a myriad of irresistible moments and performances. Annette Bening is biting and funny as an alcoholic lesbian mother; Julianne Moore is harried and loving as her conflicted wife. Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, and Josh Hutcherson add perfectly pitched dramedy with their sincere roles. You want to hug this movie, but »

Nashville Recap: Happily Never After

4 March 2015 8:04 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Remember how Friends‘ Phoebe Buffay never saw the end of sad movies as a child, because her mother didn’t want to bum her out? Maybe Mama Buffay was onto something.

Think about it: Scrubbed of its final few minutes, this week’s Nashville is a happy affair. There’s singing, there are meaningful gazes, there’s good music and there are digs made at Jeff Fordham’s expense.

Throw in a singing candelabra, and it’s practically a Disney movie.

Chris O’Donnell Receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

3 March 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As they say in Hollywood, timing is everything and, for child star-turned-“NCIS: Los Angeles” lead Chris O’Donnell, this was certainly the case.

“I got my letter from Boston College and it said, ‘You’re wait-listed,’” the Chicago-born actor recalls of senior year in high school when it was the classroom, and not a film set, on which he had set his aspirational sights. “Then I got a call from David Rubin, the casting director (of ‘Men Don’t Leave’), and he said, ‘You’ve got the part.’ And I couldn’t believe it. He says it’s going to film from July to October. And I sat there thinking, ‘Oh my God. I’m going to miss college.’ And I actually said, ‘Let me call you back.’ Because this was a huge decision. I loved acting, but I was so excited to go to college. I think there »

Justified Recap: A Place in Hell

18 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I'm worried that Ava Crowder isn't going to survive through the end of Justified. That seems a likely outcome for almost any of the major characters by this point, but the fear is especially acute in her case, because she's being squeezed from every direction, which has forced her to fall back on what pulp novelists of an earlier era would call "feminine wiles." In this week's case, that means forcibly reigniting her chemistry with Raylan, which has lain dormant since season one. The killer final scene of "Sounding," written by Dave Andron and Leonard Chang and directed by Jon Avnet (Fried Green Tomatoes), ends with Ava, who'd fled at the start of the hour, returning to the home she'll reluctantly share again with Boyd — her fiancé and the man on whom she's been informing — as well as hammering on her escort Raylan's chivalrous affectations and internalized guilt about exploiting her. »
