‘The Tale’: Jennifer Fox on Putting Herself in This True Story, Choosing HBO Over Theaters, and What’s Next

‘The Tale’: Jennifer Fox on Putting Herself in This True Story, Choosing HBO Over Theaters, and What’s Next
[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains mild spoilers for “The Tale.”]

Jennifer Fox wants you to see “The Tale.” While most writer-directors are invested in finding an audience for their picture, Fox’s motivations are deeper. The new HBO film isn’t just her first feature as a writer and first scripted film as a director; it’s her own story, crafted (and re-crafted) while she was living it, and meant to help the world understand the complex nature of childhood sexual abuse — abuse she experienced first-hand.

“My goal was to understand how and why it happened and to help other people and the world understand how complex and nuanced these events are,” Fox said in an interview with IndieWire. “That’s the purpose of this film.”

The Tale” focuses on Jennifer (Laura Dern), a documentary filmmaker who’s forced to reassess an adolescent relationship with two coaches, a horse riding instructor named Mrs. G (Elizabeth Debicki) and her friend and track coach,

People Are Confused as Heck About Hannah Baker in 13 Reasons Why Season 2
The following contains major spoilers for the second season of 13 Reasons Why.

Considering that the impetus of 13 Reasons Why's entire plot is the suicide of high school student Hannah Baker, one might expect her to take a backseat for the show's second season, which takes place about one year after her death. But to many fans' surprise, Hannah is just as front and center for the show's sophomore installment . . . both in flashback form and as a corporeal, ghost-like vision who interacts repeatedly with Clay Jensen.

Confused? Join the club.

Jane the Virgin: Why We Won't Get Answers About That Shocking Twist For Quite Some Time

Jane the Virgin: Why We Won't Get Answers About That Shocking Twist For Quite Some Time
After Jane the Virgin delivered the biggest onscreen twist in the series so far in season four's emotional rollercoaster of a finale, The CW decided to throw a curveball of their own: Jane Gloriana Villanueva's romantic misadventures will officially end after season five. What's more is, we're going to have to wait even longer than anticipated to find out what happens after Michael's miraculous reappearance. Womp, womp.

The network's Fall TV lineup is getting shifted around in a few ways to make room for new series like the Charmed reboot and the spinoff of The Originals, Legacies. While the news is certainly a bummer for any loyal Jane the Virgin fan, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Star Gina Rodriguez actually hinted that this was a possibility back in March. As she spoke

How Will Grey's Anatomy Handle That Big Cliffhanger? We Have an Idea

How Will Grey's Anatomy Handle That Big Cliffhanger? We Have an Idea
All things considered, the 14th season finale of Grey's Anatomy is one of the happiest endings we've seen in the show's history. Nobody dies or gets in a horrible accident - that all happens the week before, luckily - and though we say goodbye to two beloved characters, they still get their happy endings: April gets to ride off into the sunset with Matthew, and Arizona sets her sights on an optimistic new chapter in NYC. Yes, most of the finale is tied up neatly in a bow, but there is one semicliffhanger that's been rolling around in our heads: what's going on with Jo and Alex?

As a quick catch-up, Jo receives some pretty exceptional news in the finale: she's been accepted into a very exclusive medical program. Oh, and she'll have to move to Boston to do it. Meredith spends the episode hemming and hawing; she even offers

‘Charmed’ Star Sarah Jeffery Hits Back At Reboot Critics, Touts Its “Positive Effect”
Days after outspoken original Charmed star Holly Marie Combs threw another salvo at the upcoming CW reboot, writing on Twitter, “I will never understand what is fierce, funny, or feminist in creating a show that basically says the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago,” one of the stars of the new series, Sarah Jeffery responded with her own post on Twitter, defending the show. The Charmed reboot, from Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder…

‘Deadpool 2’ Is a Bigger, Better Movie than the Original

Make no mistake, the original Deadpool was a high benchmark in what actually turned out to be a pretty exceptional year for film. No, it wasn’t the best superhero slugfest to come out of 2016 (that would be Captain America: Civil War), nor the funniest comedy, nor was it even the best love story (that would hand down be Moonlight). In fact, looking back on it, phenomenal though it was at the time and continues to be years later, I’m not even sure if I would put the

She hasn’t been up to much lately to be honest since her most recent appearance was on Here and Now.

The Top Five Luke Perry Roles Outside of 90210

Luke Perry was considered an absolute heartthrob on the original 90210 and a bit of a bad boy. He kind of went off the Hollywood grid for a while at times but he’s been back doing what he loves to do for some time. Despite not going right back to being the same caliber of star he used to be Luke has taken it easy and continued to appear in movies and TV shows in an effort to stay relevant. For the most part it’s nostalgia that keeps his name alive right now but he’s also become a fairly well-rounded

5 Must-Stream Movies Coming to Netflix in June 2018

The DepartedMartin Scorsese is unquestionably one of the most seminal filmmakers of the last and current century. He is a singularly talented director whose credits include no less than Taxi Drive, Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino. He reinvented the gangster genre from not only its B-movie roots, but the elevated romanticism of The Godfather. And despite all of this, Oscar recognition evaded him until early in the new millennium, upon directing this adaptation of the Hong Kong detective series Infernal Affairs. And, perhaps controversially, I think it is easily his best film to date: better developed and better
