Usnavi & Co. Are Free! Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights No Longer at The Weinstein Company

One of the biggest things I was worried about after the well-deserved fall of Harvey Weinstein was what would happen to In the Heights.

“Good Guys” Do Exist: Here Are a Few Examples to Keep An Eye On in the Fight Against Sexism

As Ava DuVernay reminded us when she spoke at the Hammer Museum Gala earlier this week, "good guys" do exist. As rife as Hollywood is with terrible, horrifying examples of manhood, there are also those who genuinely and wholeheartedly embrace their role in doing better and furthering the cause of gender equality.

Why must everything I love turn to garbage? I was an intern at Miramax when I was in college, and from about age 15 to 25 I was a bit of a movie snob. Miramax films (both gritty fare like Pulp Fiction, and imports like Il Postino) hit my sweet spot.
