Expectations are very high for filmmaker Dee Rees. The Tennessee-born writer-director’s 2011 debut “Pariah” and 2015 HBO drama “Bessie” were both critically acclaimed, award-winning films, and her newest feature, “Mudbound,” is one of the the most anticipated movies at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Set in the post-World War II rural Mississippi, the film tells the story of two families pitted against the social hierarchy of 1940’s American south. When Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) and Jamie (Garrett Hedlund) return from war to life on a farm, their unique friendship challenges the already strained relationship between the two families. “Mudbound” is based on author Hillary Jordan’s 2009 novel of the same name, and features an ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Carey Mulligan, Rob Morgan, and Mary J. Blige.

Based on the true story of Susette Kelo, “Little Pink Houses” tells the story of a nurse who emerges as a reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests. Two-time Oscar nominee Catherine Keener (“Enough Said”) plays the title role. Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Criminal Minds”) co-stars.
Telling Kelo’s story has been a long time coming for Moorehead Balaker — and for the Athena Film Festival. The “Little Pink House” script was a finalist on the 2015 Athena List, a selection of screenplays with female leads or protagonists that have yet to be made into films.
“Bringing Susette’s story to the screen has been a passion of mine for years and I’m very honored by the Athena Film Festival’s invitation to open the festival,” said Moorehead Balaker in a statement. “Susette is a model of courage and defiance, and Catherine Keener’s outstanding performance perfectly embodies Susette’s spirit and drive. I’m grateful to the Athena Film Festival for showcasing her story and for giving ‘Little Pink House’ the opportunity to come full circle from Athena List Finalist to opening night film.”
Women and Hollywood’s Founder and Publisher, Melissa Silverstein, co-founded the Athena Film Festival and serves as its artistic director. She commented, “‘Little Pink House’ highlights an incredible message of woman’s courage against all odds and standing up for what is right. This is the first film from the Athena List program to be made and the fact that it will open the festival is an enormous thrill for all of us,” she emphasized.
“Little Pink House’s” official synopsis reads, “Susette’s battle goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and the controversial 5–4 decision in ‘Kelo vs. City of New London’ gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse.”
The Athena Film Festival is four-day event honoring “courageous and audacious women in real life and the fictional world,” and includes features, documentaries, and shorts. The festival will run from February 9–12 at Barnard College in New York City.

Courtney Moorehead Balaker’s “Little Pink House” to Open Athena Film Festival was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

It’s been some five years since the last entry into the Underworld franchise – Underworld: Awakening, the third sequel to the 2003 original – no doubt because that film almost, Almost killed the series…. However as the saying goes, time heals and in the case of these movies that seems to be true. Not only has it been long enough for audiences to forget the risible fourth film, but the break in production also seems to have revitalised the filmmakers too – and this time round we have a film that truly lives up to the “vampires vs. werewolves” premise proffered so many years ago.
Whilst the politics and power-struggle machinations of Underworld: Blood Wars make this story feel overly complex, hence »

Thinking back to June/July, Criminal Minds boss Erica Messer says the challenge facing her back then with regards to Season 12 indeed was mighty quaint, compared to the flurry of cast changes she would end up having to accommodate.
“That’s exactly right. We’re shooting the serialized arc [for the back half of the season] right now, and I was like, ‘Remember when this was the big thing we were doing this year?’ That was all we were sort of worried about.”
At that point in the summer, all Messer had on her plate was writing in Luke Alvez, the agent who would wind up filling »
