Weekly Roundup: Being Maleficent & New Comedy ‘Obvious Child’

Maleficent screenwriter Linda Woolverton: “I get to be Maleficent when I’m writing these things.”

NYWIFT’s sister chapter Women In Film Los Angeles honors the 20-year success of its PSA Production Program.

An Amy Poehler memoir? Yes, please!

Gillian Robespierre’s film Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate, “is not an abortion rom-com.”
