Anna Billerwould like you to stop calling old movies "feminist"because that has specific meaning.It does not just mean 'has great female characters' which many old movies do

AV ClubIan McKellen: Playing the Part,is a new documentary out later this year.Apparently it made a festival appearance last year and is planning a unique release of some kind.
Vulturean interview with the legendary Bernadette Peters.She sounds like a tough woman to interview but somehow her constant reticence about the question and obvious withholding sounds charming rather than nightmarish
PrideSasha Lane (American Honey) comes out as gay
Show-ScoreI wrote this piece (experimenting with the human interest profile format) about two women who travelled together inspired by the Broadway musicalCome From Away.Hope you like.

TowleroadMark Hamill "Of course Luke Skywalker might be gay".Oh my.Despite being a big 'mo I have to say that I am entirely unamused by this retroactive teasing that's becoming popular from storytellers -- like JK Rowling's thing with Dumbledore.If storytellers are going to have a gay character just have a gay character.Stop being so coy and don't try and take credit for having gay characters when you don't actually have them.

This would be the second remake of theRodger and Hammerstein's Cinderellawritten for Julie Andrews in 1957 (the first remake a Lesley Ann Warren version in 1965).And,still,I'd swear on the altar of all things magical that this is the finest adaptation of the Cinderella story.Myriad reasons,but principally because this Cinderella hasmore on its mind than just the girl at the centre…
