Sad Affleck went viral once again at last year’s Grammy Awards, as people caught him, more than once, perhaps looking like he didn’t want to be there. It’s certainly funny to a lot of people, including, it seems, Affleck. But this time it actually caused people to worry, like JLo’s friend Jane…

Trailblazer: The First Feminist to Change Our World by Jane Robinson; A Dirty, Filthy Book by Michael Meyer – review | Biography books

While her name is an awful mouthful, Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon remains something of a Zelig figure. Pick up almost any book about Victorian literary circles and she’ll be in it somewhere.

In as much as she sticks in the mind when your attention is really supposed to be elsewhere, she is a pleasing, bustling kind of figure: independent, cheery, rather…

Jane Schoenbrun Made Sundance’s Hottest Horror Movie

In the fall of 2021, filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun found themselves back in their hometown, walking the streets of Ardsley in Westchester County, New York, with a disposable camera in hand.
