Sisterwritereaters: My Essay is In This Great New Book

Apr 28, 2017 42

I am thrilled to be included in this magnificent book, a collection of essays by women about food, with recipes. My essay is “My Life in Six Cookies.” When we think about the biggest milestones and roadblocks in our lives, we also remember the food we cooked and/or ate while getting through them. Because we’re human. And pretty much always hungry. This book will be the literary equivalent of a heart-to heart over a warm slice of coffee cake. A bunch of kick-ass women writers,… Read the full post here » The post Sisterwritereaters: My Essay is In This Great New Book appeared first on Movie Mom. Via:: The Movie Mom ...

The Circle

Apr 27, 2017 29

Show of hands: how many of you listed nine concerts you’ve attended and one you didn’t on Facebook this week? Those lists were as inescapable in April of 2017 as they will be forgotten in May of 2017, except by the clever little bots who now, thanks to new legislation can not only collect all of the information you make available online — they can sell it. So, every bill you… Read the full post here » The post The Circle appeared first on Movie Mom. Via:: The Movie Mom ...

Tribute: Jonathan Demme

Apr 27, 2017 31

We mourn the loss of director Jonathan Demme, who died yesterday of cancer. A filmmaker of exceptional warmth, humanity, and range, his loss has been felt sharply, and it has been touching to see how many journalists and critics began their appreciations by talking about his kindness and courtesy as well as his award-winning films, including “Silence of the Lambs,” “Philadelphia,” “Rachel Getting Married,” “Something Wild,” “Handle With Care,” and “Married to the Mob,” along with documentaries… Read the full post here » The post Tribute: Jonathan Demme appeared first on Movie Mom.

How to Be a Latin Lover

Apr 27, 2017 41

I like everyone connected with this movie so much that I am especially sorry to give it a bad review. Mexican star Eugenio Derbez is a wonderfully engaging performer with enormous warmth and charm, as we saw in “Miracles From Heaven,” where he played the doctor. The supporting cast includes Salma Hayek, Kristen Bell, Rob Riggle, Raquel Welch, Michael Cera, Michaela Watkins, and Rob Lowe, and the director is the very funny Ken Marino (“Burning Love”). And it introduces a terrific young actor,… Read the full post here » The post How to Be a Latin Lover appeared first on Movie Mom. Via:: The Movie Mom ...

Exclusive Clip: Lee Meriwether in “Breaking Legs”

Apr 25, 2017 39

We are delighted to present this exclusive clip from “Breaking Legs,” a teen dance competition movie (starring real teens, not actors in their 20’s pretending to be teens). It’s available now on VOD and DVD. When new-to-town freshman Bloom meets her classmate Harmony, it’s loathing at first sight.

Premiering Tonight: Great News

Apr 25, 2017 46

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock are the producers of “Great News,” from their “30 Rock” colleague Tracey Wigfield. It’s the story of a television news producer and her mother, who becomes an intern on her show. And it’s adorable. Here Wigfield and her real mother talk to Briga Heelan and Andrea Martin, who play versions of their real-life relationship on the show. The whole cast is terrific, including John Michael Higgins, Horatio Sanz and (yes) Nicole Ritchie. It premieres April 25,… Read the full post here » The post Premiering Tonight: Great News appeared first on Movie Mom. Via:: The Movie Mom ...
