Movie Review: Bully

BY Lisa in Movies |

Outrage, devastation, an overwhelming sense of injustice—these are just a few of the feelings you’re likely to experience while watching Bully, the new documentary from filmmaker Lee Hirsch (read our interview with the director here). And you might want to bring a tissue or two. The poignant movie highlights one of the single-most terrible aspects of adolescence—bullying—and the lives and families of five kids who are heartbreakingly ... Read More
I recently moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, and while I now have an abundance of sunshine and tacos, I miss my ol’ stomping grounds something fierce, particularly all of the indie businesses and locally made goods. So when Brooklyn Based’s Brooklyn Sampler: Winter Wonderbox Edition arrived last week—featuring a handful of awesomeness from local purveyors—it was like getting a little magical box o’ BK, just the hit I needed to ...

There’s a new label for women floating around on the Internet: bagel girls. A Konglish (Korean + English) combination of baby-faced and glamorous, the phrase started popping up about a year ago on websites dedicated to K-pop and South Korean celebrities. South Korean stars, especially actresses and singers, are praised as bagel girls for the contrast between what fans have called their youthful “baby faces” and “glamorous” ... Read More
OK, I know we just posted about U.K. foursome Veronica Falls last month, but I’m crushing so hard on them, I just have to share this new vid for “Bad Feeling” (directed by Philippa Bloomfield), the first single off of their LONG-awaited debut LP. Veronica Falls hits your earholes on September 20, and of course it’s coming out on Slumberland Records, one of the best indie labels out there. Their moody, garage-y pop is just what you ... Read More
Roseanne Barr is an unapologetic feminist and a damn funny one at that. Back in the late ’80s and ’90s, she took feminism mainstream, paving the way for women in television with Roseanne, the show she created, starred in, and fought tooth and nail for during its decade-long run (read her recent account of the ordeal in NY Mag). Now she’s a macadamia nut farmer in Hawaii, chilling with chickens, goats, and her partner Johnny Argent. She's also ... Read More
For those of you who remember the day Frances Bean Cobain was born (like me), be prepared to feel a leeetle old. Lil’ FB is now lookin’ like a grown-ass woman, and in this photo shoot she did with former Dior Homme/YSL designer Hedi Slimane, she pretty much owns the camera. I know Kurt and Courtney are her parents and all, but it still freaks me out a little how much she looks like both of them. A whisper of the past in the face of the future. And hot ... Read More
Do you like art? Do you like ladies? Do you like art made by ladies? If you’re in Philly, you should definitely check out the show “Also, Books” which opens this weekend at Space 1026. And even if you don’t live in the area, you should peep the work of the show’s four inspiring women cause they are all crazy talented: Aidan Koch (that's her piece above) is an illustrator from the Pacific Northwest whose comics—full of ...

I’ve got big love for this sisters-brother trio from London. I especially dig the downtempo ska vibe of this first single from their upcoming new album, Smoking in Heaven. Kinda makes me wanna skank, real slow like. Plus these ladies have a wicked fierce look: serious eyeliner, pompadours, and vintage galore. They even recorded their record entirely the old-fashioned way, using ribbon microphones and analogue tape. That’s dedication.   You need to ... Read More
  The phrase “Let’s not get caught” has never held so much weight as it does in the final scene of Thelma & Louise. No matter how many times I’ve seen it (a lot), I still get chills. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are just SO DANG good, and talk about a feminist classic. The film turns 20 (!!) this year which means New Yorkers and Los Angelenos have a chance to not only see it on the big screen at special showings, but also to hear ... Read More
  There’s something about summer that just makes me want to shop, and right now I’m way into this adorable collection from Brooklyn-based designer Meghan Sebold’s label Afia. The pieces are totally cute and colorful—prints and pleats galore!—but it gets even better. The fabric is sustainedly sourced in West Africa and the line’s handsewn at a women’s co-op in Ghana, providing fair wages to rural villagers. May-jah ... Read More
