The Fosters Season 4 Episode 2 Review: Safe

If the season premiere played out like a suspense film, The Fosters Season 4 Episode 2 played out like a horror flick, with eerie music, a shower scene, sex, a ghost, and more than enough jump scares. 

Alas, Nick's terrorizing reign has come to an end. Well, for now. 

Watch The Fosters Season 4 Episode 2 Online

Nick didn't initially come across as in interesting character. He was an arrogant, rich kid with "Daddy issues" and a bad boy edge to appeal to both the twins. There was nothing original or engaging about his presence. Until this arc. 

On one hand, his arc felt rushed. We were suddenly faced with a young man who was clearly mentally-ill and troubled, and it was a stark contrast from who we were introduced to in the not so distant  past. 

On the other hand, Louis Hunter (Nick) does such an exceptional job at playing this creepy stalker turned suicidal abuse victim,

Despite The Falling Snow review

facebook

google+

Rebecca Ferguson stars in Despite The Falling Snow, and she's the best thing about the movie...

The main draw of Despite The Falling Snow is a dual performance by Rebecca Ferguson, who shot this in between her Emmy-nominated work on The White Queen and her memorable breakthrough role in last year's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Adapted by writer-director Sharim Sharif from her own novel, this romantic thriller casts Ferguson as two women separated by time but connected by blood and a sequence of events that occurred in Moscow at the height of the Cold War.

In 1992, an American artist called Lauren (Ferguson) is curious as to why her weary uncle Sacha (Charles Dance) is so cagey about their family's history and the circumstances of his defection from Russia thirty years prior. In particular, she's beguiled by her aunt Katya (also Ferguson), of whom she is the spitting image.

Sanjay Dutt ordered to finish jail sentence over 1993 Mumbai bombings

Bollywood actor was convicted of possessing illegal firearms as part of case over serial attacks that killed 257 people

India's supreme court has ordered the Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, the most high-profile of the 100 men and women who were convicted for the 1993 Mumbai serial bombings, to return to jail for a further three-and-a-half years.

The bombings on 12 March 1993 were engineered by a silver smuggler and gangster, Mushtaq "Tiger" Memon, widely seen as revenge for the destruction of the Mughal-era Babri Masjid, a hallowed Islamic site, by Hindu fanatics three months earlier. But the real mastermind behind the attacks was said to be the Muslim underworld kingpin Dawood Ibrahim.

Dutt had been out on parole since 2007, when he appealed against the original sentence by a lower court of six years imprisonment – not for the bomb conspiracy but for the lesser charge of possessing illegal weapons (an Ak-56 rifle and a 9mm pistol

Need Some Bad-Ass Boys On Your TV? The CW Has You Covered

l-r, Kris Polaha, Wilson Bethel, Jared Padalecki, Ed Westwick, Joseph Morgan & Shane West)

If there’s one thing you can count on with the CW Network it’s that every show – from Vampire Diaries to Nikita and Supernatural - has its share of hot guys. Even when some of their primetime schedule seems primarily geared towards young women – shows like Gossip Girl, Ringer and Hart Of Dixie come to mind - the network is very well aware that more than a few guys are watching, too, and they’re not tuning in to see the latest couture gown that Leighton Meester’s bitchy Blair Waldorf is wearing.

At the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour last month in Pasadena, CA, AfterElton.com sat in on a special panel put together to celebrate the hunks on the network. Called The Bad-Ass Boys of the CW, the panel featured Jared Padalecki (Supernatural

The 8 best quotes from The CW's Bad Ass Boys TCA panel

Last week, the networks brought their stars to Pasadena to talk with TV journalists at the biannual Television Critics Association press tour. Because The CW loves us, the network lined up five of its handsomest men to talk about the challenges of playing sexy badasses on TV.

Spoiler alert: They're all hysterical. And hot. Very, very hot.

Here are our eight favorite quotes from the most enjoyable half-hour of Jan. 12, during which the word "badass" was uttered 91 times.

Ed Westwick answers his first question in his native British accent.Polaha: Hold on a second. You're British? Padalecki: Are you from Jersey? Westwick: Australia. There's actually no difference.

Interview with Sheetal Sheth

Actress Sheetal Sheth is no stranger to controversy. She made her debut in the film Abcd , playing a promiscuous young woman struggling with the ties of family and tradition. It garnered a lot of attention from press and audiences , both positive and negative. The Indian American beauty held her own against Albert Brooks in Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World, she fell in love with actress Lisa Ray in Shamim Sarif's beloved films The World Unseen and I Can't Think Straight. She also bested me during a pillow fight on my Logo show Brunch with Bridget. (I totally let her win!)

Sheth is dealing with controversy once again with her latest film, Three Veils. The films follows three Middle Eastern women and who deal with abuse, rape and struggles with their sexuality. The script was originally boycotted but was saved thanks to the efforts of the film's director and producer.

Review of "Desigirls!"

Initially, queer New York University grad student Ishita Srivastava set out to complete a thesis project in her second year of her master's in cinema studies. After about three months of planning and five months of shooting, however, Srivastava produced much more than a thesis project, and instead what emerged was Desigirls!, a captivating exploration of queer South Asian women's identities and struggles.

Queer South Asian-American women have very different experiences than those of the archetypal "queer American woman," and Srivastava's documentary effectively captures the nuances of identity formation, sexual orientation, and family situations among queer South Asian women.

The documentary, which has been screening everywhere from New Delhi, India to NYC, begins with DJ Ashu, co-founder of Sholay Productions and the "Desilicious" party, who recognized the need for a regular queer Desi event in New York six years ago. Along with the help of co-founder DJ Shafiq, Ashu

Cheryl Cole Suffers for Fashion

Cheryl Cole suffers for fashion. The "Fight for This Love" singer, who is often voted one of the world's most stylish stars, says she always wears heels when she goes out as they make an outfit look glamorous even though she has to cope with the consequences.

Speaking at a recent night out at the Cannes Film Festival, where she wore a pair of white lace Christian Louboutins, she said, "My feet are killing me, but it's a long way until the end of the night." She then explained, "I've been invited to the Cinefondation gala dinner at the Carlton Hotel. I sit down, but I can't think straight as my feet hurt so much."

However, she admitted, "I love Louboutins, but some are so high, it is impossible to wear them for a long time. I can't take them off, though, as I may not be able to get them back on again!

AfterEllen.com’s Top 50 Lesbian and Bisexual Characters

In our first annual Top 50 Lesbian and Bi Characters poll, we asked you to vote for your favorite characters from film, television, and internet shows.

You cast your votes, and now we have the results. Before we reveal the winners, let's take a look at some of the trends that emerged.

Almost all of the characters were from films and television shows that made their debut after the year 2000. A few of the exceptions include Kerry Weaver from ER, and the ass-kicking ladies from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

While most of the characters were from Us productions, a fair amount came from international shows, including our top two characters (from the UK show Skins).

Also notable was the fact that some of your favorite characters, the leads from Xena: Warrior Princess (which ran from 1995-2001) and Idgie Threadgood from the film Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), were never officially presented as lesbian or bisexual.

Mark Kermode: It's only a movie | extract

The great iconoclastic film-maker Werner Herzog is used to shooting films – but being shot at? In this extract from his cinematic memoir Mark Kermode tells the remarkable story of how, in the middle of interviewing the German director on a hilltop in Los Angeles, he gets shot. And refuses to go to hospital. And there's the day he meets Angelina... and other stories from a life obsessed with films…

We were somewhere near Lookout Mountain, on the outskirts of La, when Werner Herzog's trousers exploded. It was a small explosion, admittedly, as if a firecracker had gone off in his pocket. But it was an explosion none the less and in an area where unexpected bangs are to be treated with suspicion, if not outright alarm. Herzog had been shot – that much was clear – and was even now bleeding quietly into his boxer shorts as a tiny plume of

Allison Iraheta's Just Like You: The Album Snippet Preview!

Dye your hair with Kool-Aid and start joking about cutting, because 30-second snippets of Allison Iraheta's major label debut Just Like You have hit the web. Everybody knows I was less-than-thrilled with the super-poppy, heavily-processed vocals of Iraheta's Max Martin-produced single "Friday I'll Be Over U." But will the rest of her album make me happy? Let's go through these too-short snippets and see.

» "Friday I'll Be Over U"

This.

» "Robot Love"

In this pulsating electro-pop ditty (which samples Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part II"), Iraheta is pissed that her boyfriend is in love with a robot. Whether said robot is an actual lady cyborg or just an iPhone is to be determined. Also Tbd? Whether this song will have a discernible melody. We're on track two and I'm already thinking "filler?" Ruh-roh.

» "Just Like You"

Good news: I'm finally hearing Allison's voice without a bunch of studio trickery around it.

Visibility Matters: Entertaining the Future

Visibility Matters is a monthly-ish column by AfterEllen.com Founder Sarah Warn about larger trends affecting lesbian/bi women in entertainment and the media.

Visibility Matters: Entertaining the Future

Lesbian/bi visibility in entertainment today is a mass of contradictions. It's both better and worse than it was when I started writing about it more than seven years ago.

There are more lesbian talk show hosts than ever before on network TV, but still very few fictional lesbian characters on broadcast or cable TV.

We now have well-developed, prominent lesbian characters and superheroes in comics — from Willow to Batwoman — but even the most minor lesbian characters are missing from, or "straightened out" in, most studio theatrical releases. Sometimes an entire lesbian subculture is de-gayed, as demonstrated in Whip It.

Female musicians are coming out left and right as gay or bisexual, as we saw when Brandi Carlile finally confirmed last week that she's a lesbian,

"The love scenes are sensuous but reflective of the love between these two women" - Shamim Sarif

Shamim Sarif is perhaps one of the most honest Desi filmmakers. Taking from her own experiences and situations she has encountered, the writer-director went on to make one of the most coveted films based on her own written novels "I Can't Think Straight" and "The World Unseen". Interestingly both films feature a similar theme set in different times. While I Can't Think Straight talks about a lesbian couple in today's world who deals with society and a cultural divide while The World Unseen deals with a comparable situation however set in 1950 South Africa. However whether its I Can't Think Straight or The World Unseen, individually the scripts talk about women who need to break boundaries as they deal with a taboo subject in homophobic societies. The festival circuit has taken quite a liking to both films which independently won much acclaim and awards and is now gearing up for release in India.
