Orange Is The New Black
The ladies of Litchfield are back on June 9, and the entirety of Orange is the New Black Season 5 will take place over just 3 days — read: SUPER intense! The trailer teases that the new season picks up right as the riot is heating up. A shot is fired, but we don’t know who pulls the trigger, or if anyone gets hurt.
Where are my Olivia Pope fans at? The utterly flawless Kerry Washington brings the heat in season 6 of the acclaimed Shonda Rhimes political drama, Scandal. If you can’t bring yourself to watch this live and wait a week in between episodes, now is chance time to binge them all back-to-back!
I don’t know about you, but I love when I see some melanin in a family movie so that my kids can see someone that looks like them on screen. Disney’s Moana, which features the voice of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is an empowering family film all about one little girl who believes she can truly do anything.
Daugthers Of Dust
In the mood and imagery of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” — women wearing gauzy white gowns, wading through water, perching in a mossy tree — savvy viewers identified a deep influence: Ms. Dash’s 1991 film, Daughters of the Dust. Warmly received and lavishly praised for its beauty and dreamlike narrative, this film tells the tale of Gullah women on the Sea Islands off the Southeastern United States in the early 1900s who are tugged north by the Great Migration. It was the first feature film by an African-American woman to have a wide release.
What do up and coming actresses Kia Stevens, Sydelle Noel and Britney Young have in common? They’re all apart of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, aka GLOW. Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder, an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. Brought to you by the creative team behind OITNG, this crew of badass women are perfect in their imperfections, and will leave you laughing, crying and screaming: Where My Girls At?!
