GLOW – the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling – is a wild and crazy and unique series that would be entertaining as hell even if didn’t have something to say about making a TV wrestling show, feminism, family, racism and a bunch of other isms I can’t think of right now!
The first ten-episode season is now available on Netflix and, trust me on this, it’s freakin’ addictive!
Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) is an out of work actor who wants a role where she’s not serving the cause of a man. She answers an ad in the newspaper and finds herself auditioning to play a wrestler on television.
Netflix has just released a behind the scenes featurette with the cast and creators of GLOW talking about the show.
Gunpowder & Sky’s new film The Little Hours – based on Giovanni Boccaccio’s Decameron – is the story of three medieval nuns – Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) – whose days days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer.
Things change (and not necessarily for the better when Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco).
I’m not sure which is funnier – the fact that so many people seem completely unaware that Get Hard is not only not objectionable (at least not for being racist or homophobic), it’s taking the mickey out of racists and homophobes; or that it’s a very funny movie.
