posted by Nell Minow

Chaz Ebert has announced that everything posted on rogerebert.com this week will be written by a woman.  I’m delighted to kick it off with my tribute to Barbara Stanwyck, inspired by the Pre-Code film series I am co-hosting with Margaret Talbott at Washington DC’s Hill Center (Hurray!  We’ll be doing it again in 2014) and by a new book, the first volume of a new two-volume biography of Stanwyck, A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940, by Victoria Wilson.  Chaz promises that the week will include

memories of women in film and television this year from Alyssa Rosenberg…Susan Wloszczyna, Christy Lemire and Sheila O’Malley will discuss 1980s cult film “Ms. 45.” Anne Elizabeth Moore will discuss lesbians and male directors in connection with “Blue is the Warmest Color.” Joyce Kulhawik will review “Nuclear Nation,” Sheila O’Malley will review “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” Marsha McCreadie will review “Punk Singer,” and there will be eight more reviews from our talented women critics.

You can follow all the new posts here.  Looking forward to reading it all!

Jon Favreau follows his big-budget special effects movies ("Iron Man," "Cowboys and Aliens") with a return to his small, indie roots ("Swingers") as director/writer/star of the scrumptious-looking "Chef."  (WARNING: Some strong language) [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP6SE65F-h4[/yout
