Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...

Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..

The Brady Bunch Movie

The Brady Bunch films never really seemed to do much business in the UK, and that’s a real pity. No foreknowledge of the series is required, and the first movie takes the Brady film and transplants them into 1990s America, with no »

This spring, Hulu‘s stunning adaptation of Margaret Atwood‘s “The Handmaid’s Tale” has become one of the major television talking points among critics and audiences, and the good news for both is that another one of the author’s works is coming to the small screen, and it also looks like it’ll pack a wallop.

Penned by Sarah Polley (“Away From Her,” “Take This Waltz“) and directed by Mary Harron (“American Psycho“), Netflix‘s “Alias Grace” is inspired by the true story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a young, poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who — along with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan) — finds herself accused and convicted of the infamous 1843 murders of her employer, wealthy farmer Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross), and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin).

Toronto: The Cinematic City

13 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The most populous city in Canada has appeared on-screen in many different ways over the years.Enemy (2013)

There are many ways in which cities are portrayed in cinema. Sometimes cities are anonymous and nameless, and sometimes cities become characters in the films they are portrayed in. Cities can be merely incidental settings, or the specific locations within a city can be incredibly important both narratively and visually. The people within a city tend to represent the place itself: how they act, how they dress, where they work, how they speak, and what they eat. All of these things can be related to the place they live. Cities are home to an infinite multitude of experiences — people from different places, with different families, different wants and desires and identities.

There are cities that are frequently remembered as being iconic within the world of cinema. Paris, Rome, New York, Venice, Chicago, and London have all received loving portraits in »

Sarah Polley To Direct ‘The Best Kind Of People’

12 April 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sarah Polley has hit an enviable creative groove. After the director caught everyone’s attention with 2006’s “Away From Her,” she pivoted to the messy but emotionally affecting “Take This Waltz,” and then delivered the terrific, genre-pushing documentary “Stories We Tell.” She’s currently at work on delivering her TV series adaptation of Margaret Atwood‘s “Alias Grace” for Netflix, and now has a new feature cooking which sounds right in her wheelhouse.

Sarah Silverman to Host Political Comedy Talk Show for Hulu

28 March 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Sarah Silverman in “The Good Wife”: Jeffrey Neira/ CBS

Sarah Silverman is branching out into political commentary. The stand-up comedian and actress will host a weekly half-hour talk show — in the vein of “Full Frontal” or “Last Week Tonight”— from Funny Or Die, tentatively called “I Love You, America.” Deadline reports that there was quite a bidding war over the series, featuring “production offers from both ad-supported and pay services.” Hulu eventually nabbed the project, giving it a 10-episode straight-to-series order.

In addition to headlining the show, Silverman will exec produce with Amy Zvi and Funny Or Die’s Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

“From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman often has been a lightning rod for heated online debate,” the source summarizes. “While she has been open about her political convictions and, like many of her colleagues, has spoken out against President Donald Trump and his policies, the new program is designed to be balanced, with her looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously.”

No word on when exactly we can expect “I Love You, America,” but given the current political climate, we’re betting Funny Or Die and Hulu will want to debut it sooner rather than later. (Let’s all pause for a moment and imagine the comedy gold Silverman could’ve mined from the Trumpcare shitshow.)

For now, however, you can catch Silverman in a bunch of other projects. Her next stand-up special — also produced by Zvi — will be released on Netflix May 30. She will also portray World Tennis magazine founder Gladys Heldman in Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes.” The comedy based on the historical tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) hits theaters September 22.

Silverman’s last comedy special, HBO’s “Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles,” earned her an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. She received a 2016 SAG nomination for her dramatic turn in “I Smile Back,” a portrait of a woman struggling with mental health issues, addiction, and motherhood.

Silverman’s other credits include “The Sarah Silverman Program,” Sarah Polley’s “Take This Waltz,” “Masters of Sex,” “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping,” and “Bob’s Burgers.”

Sarah Silverman to Host Political Comedy Talk Show for Hulu was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
