Terry’s Picks: Natalie Portman, Women Rule the Box Office & Bonnie Raitt

Good judgment: Natalie Portman insisted on hiring a woman director for the upcoming Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic.

Not bad: This NPR piece points out that we’re only halfway through 2015, and already six of the top 10 box-office hits center on women characters.

Something to talk about: Bonnie Raitt is the only woman selected for a book on 100 of the world’s greatest guitar players.
