Why ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Deserves Best Picture

by

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the NY Times ScreenTalk series with the cast of Call Me By Your Name, a film that has been making the festival rounds since Sundance ‘17 and is now, finally, about to make its wide release. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is one of, if not the, most beautiful film I have ever seen. If I could afford it, I would buy everyone I know tickets to see this movie just to ensure that no one I care about misses it. It’s THAT good, and I’ve already seen it twice.

Emma Kenney Chats Season 8 of ‘Shameless’

by

Truly one of the most nuanced and honest actresses of her age, 18-year-old Emma Kenney is a force to be reckoned with. Over the past 8 years on Showtime’s Shameless, we’ve seen Kenney tackle issues such as abandonment, neglect, and teen pregnancy with a sense of grace and poise you would expect from a veteran actor—not someone just 13 at the time. After a night of binge-watching The Real Housewives, Kenney caught up with us to chat about growing up on screen, being a teen in Hollywood, and the future of her character Debbie.

Nick Fink Talks ‘Sweet Vicious,’ ‘The Great & The Small,’ and More

by

Nick Fink is a name that should be on your radar. In his early 20s, Fink has already landed the role of Tyler Finn on MTV’s new show Sweet Vicious—the story of two badass girls who fight back against rape culture on their college campus. We caught up with Fink as season one wrapped to discuss his start in LA and what’s up next for him.

Wild Women of Planet Wongo Lands With A Bang

by

First written for a University of Michigan workshop, Ben Budick, Steve Mackes, and Dave Ogrin’s Wild Women of Planet Wongo lands in New York City with a bang. After re-working the originally standard performance, the show has transformed into an immersive experience where the audience members get to roam around Planet Wongo (that’s right, there is no stage and no seats) and interact directly with the actors one on one for a theatre experience like no other.

A United Kingdom Missed Its Throne

by

When the trailer for Amma Asante’s “A United Kingdom” popped up on YouTube as a pre-roll ad, I was captivated by it. Instead of eagerly awaiting the moment I could skip after thirty seconds, I was hooked and immediately added it to the extensive list of ‘movies I need to see’ in my the notes on my phone. So, when an email from Fox Searchlight popped into my inbox inviting me to the New York premiere, I was, quite obviously, psyched.

Why The Gilmore Girls Reboot Should Be #1 On Your Netflix Queue

by

I vividly remember the moment that Gilmore Girls ended. It was spring of 2007 and Samantha’s living room was cluttered with a scattering of used tissues, empty take-out containers, and pairs of mothers and daughters with red-rimmed eyes. For those 42 minutes, the room, tucked away in a small Connecticut town much like our beloved Stars Hollow, remained completely silent. Well, silent apart from the rapid-fire dialogue and infamous ‘La La’s bellowing from the TV in front of us one final time.

‘Fantastic Beasts’ is a Fantastic Trip Back to the Wizarding World

by

This past weekend, cinemas once again opened their doors and invited us into the magical world of wizardry–a place I’ve called home since I was 7 years old and just learning to read. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is an exciting reintroduction to a world we all know so well. A prequel of sorts to the original Potter franchise, Beasts takes place across the pond in New York in 1926, an age where wizards are feared and banished underground–an interesting parallel to the Prohibition era in which it takes place.

Kelli Berglund Talks ‘Lab Rats,’ Acting, and What’s Next

by

“My family knew nothing about this. No one in my family had ever been in the ‘industry,’” explains 20-year-old Kelli Berglund, who shot to fame following the premiere of her widely popular Disney XD show, Lab Rats, four years ago. Fast forward to today and she is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s actors to watch. “I was 9 years old and doing a dance performance and there was a talent agent in the audience. She came up to my mom and I afterwards and was gushing, saying, ‘She’s amazing! It would be so cool to get her with an agency!’”

Read To Travel: An Interview With Tara Higgins

by

“I have this insanely vivid memory where I’m sitting in my fifth grade classroom, looking at the bulletin board with the world map on it, and thinking, ‘One day I will travel the world. I think I’ve been unconsciously obsessed with it ever since,” admits Tara Higgins, the 22-year-old mastermind behind Read To Travel, a budding blog that documents Higgins’ life as an expat traveling across New Zealand—but we’ll get to that later.
