Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story (2011 TV Movie)
Pier Paolo Pasolini’S Trilogy Of Life (Criterion) Pier Paolo Pasolini was Italy’s last Neo-Realist, a product of post-ww II Europe who was fervently Catholic, openly gay, defiantly Marxist, and one of the most original voices of the 20th century’s second half.

Taraji P. Henson attended the Emmy Awards over the weekend with her good luck charm at her side, her grandma. The actress was nominated for her work on Lifetime’s “Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story,” and also performed as part of the “Emmytone” singing group throughout the show.
Henson, who was nominated for an Oscar for her work in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” returns to TV this fall in the CBS drama,
The event was a night of snubs and surprises: The Office alum Steve Carell lost out on his final chance to claim an Emmy for his role as Michael Scott, Mad Men won Outstanding Drama Series for a fourth consecutive year yet failed to garner any acting accolades, and Downton Abbey brought on a British invasion after managing to secure four awards.
A highlight of the show came from the mind of Parks And Recreation star Amy Poehler, who along with her fellow Lead Actress in a Comedy nominees, unexpectedly stormed the stage. At the announcement of their category, the comedy stars joined hands in a show of female solidarity and mock-pageantry, and literally crowned winner Melissa McCarthy with a tiara. “Wow, it
