"Cubbies" is a slow but satisfying bridging episode of Girls that thrusts the characters' story arcs into an emotionally mature direction.
The latest episode of HBO's Girls is an odd one. Every storyline save for Marnie's is a big ol' mess.
A solid fourth season premiere of Girls gives us a taste of character growth and leaves quite a few questions unanswered.
If you absolutely have to see one dysfunctional family drama this year, you could do worse than This Is Where I Leave You.
While We’re Young Special Presentations Noah Baumbach’s bitter little filmmaking pill has never been wildly popular, but he’s been surprisingly consistent enough to earn and maintain a healthy cult of support. That small audience of angry people with a sweet tooth for bitter comedy should be quite pleased by the writer/director’s latest effort, particularly after […]
We chat with Daniel Radcliffe about his new film The F Word, co-star Zoe Kazan, not wearing capes, and love as an excuse for sociopathy.
The F Word is a rich, thoughtful, and purposefully problematic romance that hasn’t really been attempted or nailed this well since When Harry Met Sally.
TIFF didn't announce an opening night film alongside today's announcements of Galas and Special Presentations for their 2014 festival this September, but they announced plenty to get people excited for the event.
It’s probably hard to make a film about someone simply walking from one end of a desert to another, but there’s got to be a better way to handle it than how John Curran does in Tracks.
Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to see an advance screening of Tracks in Toronto on June 4th, Vancouver on June 5th, Victoria on June 16th, or Winnipeg, Calgary, and Edmonton on June 18th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Mongrel Media!
The finale was a beautiful end to the best season of Girls so far. Along with Dunham, Judd Apatow has helped create the second chapter in his experimental analysis of generational distress. Whether you like it or not, this is the Freaks and Geeks of the twenty-something generation. This is Lindsay Weir and Neal Schweiber wearing skinny jeans instead of puffy vests. This is Kim Kelly and Daniel Desario trying coke instead of smoking pot.
This season Girls has become more focused than ever on using subtly themed episodes to test its characters like lab rats. The biggest thematic thread (or piece of cheese, depending on which metaphor you go with here) has been the notion of settling. This episode, the show asked some tough questions: Are you actually content, or are you unknowingly giving up a piece of yourself? Are you deluded if you’re happy with something seemingly imperfect?
This episode of Girls was an emotional rollercoaster, bringing back S3E1's theme of questioning bonds between partners. Earlier this season Hannah told Adam “I really know you—no matter what your crazy ex-girlfriend says, I really know you.” While Natalia certainly doesn't understand Adam, it seems like Hannah might not either.
Hidey-ho readers! Your friendly neighbourhood Girls recapper is here with some sweet, sweet catch-up.
Marnie desperately wishes that the girls had the same bonds they did when they were in college. In an attempt to reconnect, she organizes an epic, adult weekend, packed with everyone's favourite thing: Rigid planning! To no one's surprise, the weekend goes horribly wrong when the girls start resenting being boxed into Marnie's idea of how their vacation and their relationships should work.
