Terry’s Picks: Life Lessons, Dream Team, Zero Weeks

Life Lessons: Be sure to read Manohla Dargis’ brilliant piece in The New York Times about what movies teach us about being a woman. She says: “Movies get into our bodies, making us howl and weep, while their narrative and visual patterns, their ideas and ideologies leave their imprint.” Representation matters.

Dream Team: Thanks to Time’s Up, USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative founder Stacy Smith – whose research has influenced the on-screen and behind-the-scenes inclusion movement for years – has teamed up with stars Brie Larson and Tessa Thompson to gain the attention of Hollywood heavyweights and strive for measurable change.

Zero Weeks: The groundbreaking documentary Zero Weeks is now on iTunes! In one of the richest nations in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can be a trigger into poverty. Zero Weeks explores America’s paid leave crisis, the cost of doing nothing, and what we can do about it.
