Obama Reveals 3 Pieces of Advice He’s Shared with Daughters Malia and Sasha

22 September 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it comes to achieving leadership goals, Sasha and Malia Obama have a pretty good role model — their dad.

During a Q&A with Bill and Melinda Gates on Wednesday for their charity foundation, former President Barack Obama revealed the three big pieces of leadership advice he’s given his teenage daughters over the years.

1. “Being responsible is an enormous privilege”

“When they were small, their responsibilities were small, like, ‘Say when you want to go potty’,” Obama joked of Malia, now 19, and Sasha, 16. “As you get older, your responsibilities grow.”

Obama says he and his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Outside In’

8 September 2017 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Though hewing to the small-scale seriocomedy of her prior big-screen work, Lynn Shelton’s first feature since 2014’s “Laggies” (despite a lot of TV work in between) expands on the modest appeal of those earlier films to deliver a personal best to date. “Outside In” stars co-writer Jay Duplass as an ex-con returning after 20 years’ lockup to his hometown, where the only person he’s really eager to see is his old high school English teacher, played by a luminous Edie Falco.

Their awkward, inappropriate quasi-romance is the crux here, but Shelton and Duplass have etched a number of other character relationships to ultimately poignant effect as well. Critical support and potential awards buzz for the leads could boost “Outside” into above-average theatrical performance for its latter-day Amerindie ilk.

A stupid escapade in which he wound up taking the fall for two pals — one of them younger brother Ted (Ben Schwartz) — sent Chris Connelly (Duplass) into the »

Detroit movie review: racism 101 for white people

31 August 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Tense, gripping, enraging, but only about things that black Americans already know. This is a primer about racism for white people, and we must pay attention. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Detroit is a movie about racism in America for white people. It mostly does not center black characters except as victims. Its villain — a murderously racist white cop — is also its protagonist. A movie about racism in America for white people isn’t the most terrible idea ever: Detroit wants to show us white people how the systematic weight of endless injustice weighs on black people, psychologically as well as physically, because of entrenched racism, not only of the actively vicious kind but also of the “I’m not getting involved, I’m just minding my own business” kind. »

Chloe Grace Moretz on Growing Up, Hillary Clinton and Hollywood Sexism

8 August 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One year ago, the Democratic National Convention was buzzing with celebrities like Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham, and Elizabeth Banks. But none of them had closer proximity to the candidate than Chloë Grace Moretz, who took the stage 45 minutes before Hillary Clinton.

“It was one of the happiest moments of my life, that’s for sure,” recalls Moretz, 20, on a recent afternoon, sitting with her two-month-old pug, Ruby. The actress had such a plum spot at the DNC because organizers were hoping she’d reach first-time millennial voters.

Moretz has something in common with her multitasking generation: She knows what it’s like to burn out as a teenager. After appearing in dozens of movies since she was a pint-size kid, Moretz realized at 18 that she needed a yearlong break. She left her home in Los Angeles for a solitary vacation in Tulum, Mexico, embarked on a few road trips, dated and spent time with her friends — a »

Tai Freligh interviews Jasmin Savoy Brown

Actress Jasmin Savoy Brown is perhaps best known for her role on HBO’s The Leftovers and will be next seen in season 3.  Later in the year she will be seen as a lead in TNT’s new drama Will.  Jasmin’s additional credits include: Freeform’s Stitchers, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and NBC’s Grimm. She recently appeared in the film Lane 1974, which premiered at SXSW on March 11th, 2017. She also played a supporting role in the Sundance hit film Laggies.  I chatted with her about The Leftovers, Will and other projects.

Having heard the buzz about The Leftovers, but not having HBO or watching an episode yet, how would you describe it to the uninitiated?

It’s deeply disturbing and addicting. It focuses on our current world as we know it. The only difference is two »

The Best Indie Film Directors are Working on One Hulu Show, and Most Just Happen to be Women

25 May 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Each year, when “Casual” executive producers Zander Lehmann and Helen Estabrook brainstorm who should direct the new season, it starts with two very simple requirements:

“We sit down and make our list of who we most want to work with, and which good indie movies we’ve seen lately,” said Lehmann, who created the Hulu comedy.

“We’ve always really wanted to match the indie filmmaking aesthetic and perspective with a television show, so a lot of it comes from us sitting down and thinking about, ‘Who are the directors working in this space that we’re really excited about?’” Estabrook said.

18 May 2017 5:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following is a virtual IV drip of spoilers for the Season 13 finale of Grey’s Anatomy.

Going into Thursday’s explosive Grey’s Anatomy, it certainly looked as if the Season 13 finale was going to be unlucky for Stephanie. But Megan’s resurrection also promised to blow up Meredith’s fledgling romance with Nathan, and all those recent Jackson/Maggie scenes suggested that April might be about to get burned, too. Who, if any of them, made it out unscathed? Who made it out at all? Read on…

Slamdance Festival: Proud to Be Park City Disrupters

19 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 23rd annual Slamdance Film Festival kicks off Jan. 20 and runs through Jan. 26 in Park City, with a new crop of rising filmmakers ready to present fresh and energizing work. Created in 1995 by Dan Mirvish, Jon Fitzgerald, Shane Kuhn, and Peter Baxter, Slamdance continues to be a hotbed for new cinematic talent living on the edges of the independent and studio landscape.

“We love disruption of the creative variety,” Baxter says. “We don’t have one particular direction and there’s no hierarchy here. We’re looking for films that defy description, that showcase brave filmmaking, with artists looking ahead to new forms of media and art.”

Throughout the years the festival has grown considerably. There’s a screenplay competition, Slamdance Studios, and Slamdance on the Road, which acts as a mobile theatrical showcase for Slamdance titles. And to hear it from Baxter, it’s an evolutionary process of selecting exciting and challenging worldwide cinema. »
