Then her back went out.
“I didn’t know it at the time, but I’d never had a feeling like that,” Adlon said in an interview with IndieWire. “I slipped my disc! And I actually shot another 12 hours that day.”
Why? In part, because Adlon didn’t realize the extent of her injury at the time, but it’s also because she wasn’t just acting in the scene. She also directed the episode, as well as every other entry
This week’s question: Who is the best mother on TV? (Must have appeared on a show in the past year.)

Obviously, the person who is going to be the best mom on TV is going to be the mom who reminds me the most of My mom because my mother is the best mother in the universe. And that TV mom is Christine Baskets from FX’s “Baskets.” Not that my mom is a man in drag (as far as I know), but she is incredibly devoted to me and obsessed with my well-being, as well as extremely tolerant of my whims, for the most part. Christine is all that, but she’s a great TV mom because she’s Such A Mom and the role

The pro-woman message wasn’t overt, but it was nevertheless important in the wake of the sexual harassment revelations from last year involving Adlon’s mentor, writing partner and good friend Louis C.K. His name wasn’t mentioned during the panel at all, and instead the mood was one of loving support and celebration for what the cast and
Ahead of the show’s Fyc panel moderated by Variety’s Debra Birnbaum, which included Adlon and cast members Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward, and Celia Imrie, Adlon shared why she thinks “Better Things” continues to connect with audiences.
Adlon told Variety at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood that she is “grateful” viewers find her writing so relatable. “There’s something for everybody in my show because

Directed by Richard Loncraine.
Starring Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie, Joanna Lumley, Phoebe Nicholls, David Heyman, Josie Lawrence, Sian Thomas, and John Sessions.
On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
At its core, Finding Your Feet is a well-intentioned elderly romantic comedy dabbling in themes such as social class, marital woes, death, dancing (pulled off rather stiffly I might add), and staying true to one’s self. Although the film focuses on the character of Sandra (Imelda Staunton), there are many others also attempting to find their footing, so to speak, dealing with problems ranging from illnesses to the defeating hopelessness of bearing witness to a significant other who is suffering greatly from dementia.
“Dolores Umbridge is just part of a wonderful franchise, and I’m just one of the many characters who can hopefully frighten a couple of children on the street,” Staunton said in an interview with IndieWire. “It was wonderful to be part of that, but I wouldn’t have got that part without ‘Vera Drake,’ which absolutely upped my profile. ‘Vera Drake’ was the one that did it for me.

When snooty, stick-up-her-butt Sandra discovers that her husband is cheating on her just as they were about to retire — something Sandra has been planning for the past 35 years — she escapes from her English countryside manor to London, to the cosy, cramped public-housing flat of the freespirited sister, Bif, she hasn’t seen in decades. Sandra seems pretty awful at first, just plain horrible and rude even as she busts her way into Bif’s life uninvited, and precisely as we’re about to grumble,
Both added a much-needed boost to the anemic specialty market. Only three holdovers after their third week grossed over $50,000, including the final dates for Oscar-winner “The Shape of Water.” This marks the lowest numbers in years, and exposes the feast-or-famine nature of the current specialized box office.
The widest new opener, Roadside Attraction’s British senior romance “Finding Your Feet,” drew a mixed response in multiple initial cities.
