Ellen Page Kidnaps a Baby in Trailer For Tallulah'

23 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Netflix has released the trailer and poster for the critically-acclaimed film Tallulah, which will debut on July 29 in all territories where Netflix is available.

Tallulah, the Netflix original film, was written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), and tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page - Whip It, Inception), who lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively "rescue" a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney - Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she's the child's grandmother.

Tammy Blanchard (Into the Woods, Moneyball), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Girls), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife, Manhattan) and Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, The Wiz Live! »

Ellen Page Kidnaps a Baby in First Trailer For ‘Tallulah’

29 June 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Recurring Orange Is The New Black writer Sian Heder is making her feature-length directorial debut after two short films with the Netflix-distributed Tallulah. Following a premiere at Sundance, the first trailer shows the struggle of the titular Tallulah (Ellen Page), a down-on-her-luck young woman who stumbles upon a nannying gig that sends her on unforgettable (or maybe very forgettable) journey. Oh, and she sorta kidnaps the baby and pretends it’s her own in order to get money from her missing boyfriend’s mother — but don’t worry, it’s inspirational when you put sad music over it.

We said in our review: “The light tone works well enough on its own, but suffers against the contrasting police investigation, a constant reminder that our lead’s new-found motherhood (also fodder for much comedy) has come at an awful price. Though this dichotomy is of clear intention by all involved, these »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Comedy Series

29 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits

• Last Year’s Winner: “Veep”

• Was It an Upset? Kind of. Most experts believed “Modern Family’s” five-year win streak would end, but disagreed over whether “Veep,” “Transparent” or “Louie” would defeat it. • Still Eligible? Yes • Hot Streak: Though “Modern Family” lost its winning streak last year, it could still become the most awarded program ever in this category with just one more win. It’s currently tied with “Frasier” at five trophies.

• Fun Fact: The last time the highest-rated show nominated won was in 2012 (“Modern Family”). The last time the lowest-rated show won was most likely in 2004, when “Arrested Development” took home the prize over “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Will and Grace.” (though lack of ratings for certain HBO programs makes it hard to tell for sure).

Get ready to see a few new faces in the top comedy category this year. Two of the seven nominees from 2015 aren’t eligible anymore, »

The 11 Most Honest Portrayals of Abortion on TV

28 June 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, which overruled a Texas abortion law that would shut down all but a handful of clinics across the state, was the most significant decision on abortion the court has made in the last 20 years. While abortion is a constant hot topic in terms of governmental policy, it is rarely addressed on our televisions, outside of CNN or Fox News. And when it is addressed, TV shows have a tendency to shy away from honestly portraying how real women deal with unwanted pregnancies.

Lena Dunham ‘Can’t Watch’ Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Video, Says It Makes Her Feel ‘Sad and Unsafe and Worried’

27 June 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The High Sparrow may have dug the new Kanye video, but Lena Dunham isn’t feeling it. The star/creator of “Girls” wrote in a Facebook post about “Famous” that “I can’t watch it, don’t want to watch it, if it feels informed and inspired by the aspects of our culture that make women feel unsafe even in their own beds, in their own bodies.”

What DC/Warner Bros has Gotten Right Before Marvel Has

27 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Over the past three months DC/WB has seen a plethora of critics put every decision under a microscope and dissect everything wrong with the Dceu.  From the tone of Man of Steel, the appointment of Zach Snyder as the lead of Dceu, the casting of Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot as Batman and Wonder Woman, the interpretation of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and the decision and style of Doomsday.  I am probably missing some more critiques that are out there but you all understand my point that there is plenty that Warner Bros., Zach Snyder, and DC have to fix before Justice League.  With all of those issues there is one that DC and Warner Bros. got right and did so before Marvel and that would be the incorporation of strong female leads in the Dceu.

Emmy Ballots Due: Which old fav would you sacrifice for a newbie?

27 June 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Emmy nomination balloting ends today for the 68th annual Emmy Awards. Cross your fingers that we actually get a few shakeups this year. Yes, cross your fingers even if you love all 10 of the shows that are normally swimming in nominations. Why? Well, the Emmys really should reflect how competitive television is and not suggest that there have only been 10ish good shows on the air for the past half decade plus.

Comment Party! On that note please do tell us in the comments which 3 of your old favorites that you still love you'd be willing to sacrifice for 3 who have not been recognized. Make your Sophie's Choice in the comments and let us all pray that Emmy voters do the same. Nobody deserves 5+ nominations for the same thing when that means someone else can't even get One for something arguably just as good! The catch is that you can't »

The Ladies Are Now in Charge on Game of Thrones and People Are Living for It

27 June 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Warning: Spoilers for the season six finale of Game of Thrones ahead. Duh. Read on at your own peril if you haven't yet watched the episode. Okay ladies, now let's get in formation! It's no surprise that Beyoncé lyrics are the perfect soundtrack to the Game of Thrones finale, because Queen B would fit in perfectly with that TV show right now. Why? Because who runs Westeros? Girls! Last night's episode, "The Winds of Winter," not only gave us many satisfying moments (R+L finally equals J, the King in the North, etc.), but we were left with the women running s--t. Cersei sipped wine and smiled while she blew up a big portion of King's Landing. Daenerys is heading »

Which Major Houses Are Allied at the End of Game of Thrones Season 6?

27 June 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Who run the world (and Game of Thrones)? Girls . . . and Jon Snow! Even the new King in the North wouldn't have been given his title without the aid of badass child genius Lyanna Mormont. The season six finale was chock-full of ladies doin' it for themselves and by the end, new alliances are formed (or shifted) and thrones are ascended. Here's how the main houses are allied by the end of season six: House Stark At the newly reclaimed Winterfell, Jon addresses a room full of Knights of the Vale, Northmen, and Free Folk, and struggles to gain their collective fidelity. He is ultimately saved, however, by tiny Lady Mormont, who delivers her own version of the "Shame!" chant by calling out all of the houses that are reluctant to rally behind House Stark. She reminds each of the house leaders why they ought to pledge loyalty to Jon Snow. »

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4: Lori Petty Talks Lolly’s Fate

26 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses plot points from the entire fourth season of “Orange Is the New Black.” Do not read until you’ve watched.]

Lori Petty’s Lolly Whitehill is such a central part of “Orange Is the New Black” season 4, that it’s easy to forget she hasn’t been there all along.

After a brief guest turn in the second season premiere (when Piper was on the plane to Chicago), Lolly returned last season to spook Alex (Laura Prepon), who thought she was sent to kill her. As it turned out Lolly was simply following the voices in her head — a paranoid schizophrenic, Lolly is convinced all government agencies are united in a conspiracy to kill her.

This season, Lolly saves Alex’s life by knocking out the prison guard who turned out to be an undercover assassin, helps Alex bury the body, and later bonds with Healy (Michael J. Harney), who convinces her that it was all in her head. Sadly, it wasn’t, and when the truth is revealed Healy is forced to escort Lolly to psychiatric »

Emmy Fyc: Amy Landecker in "Transparent"

24 June 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Eric here, with a plea for Emmy consideration for a dark horse candidate for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy:  Amy Landecker for Amazon’s Transparent.

Transparent is generous to all of its actors because it gives them dramatically complicated landscapes to play in with dialogue that doesn't always fill in those gaps for emotional transitions and arcs. It's the kind of hard work actors love to do.  This is, of course, how we all make realizations in “real life” so the actors in Transparent are key to the delicate naturalism of the show, and the creative team behind them have the grace and intelligence to capture the work without exploiting their vulnerability.

Amy Landecker, who plays the eldest sibling Sarah, does wonders with an extraordinarily difficult character.  In season one, Sarah leaves her husband Len for another woman (Tammy) in a sex-obsessed haze and a rebellion against her controlled, »
