Elisabeth Moss Defends Scientology To Instagram Fan


Elisabeth Moss

Elisabeth Moss has spoken out via her Instagram account to defend her belief in Scientology, after a fan asked her a question comparing the belief system to that of the regime in her new show, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’.

The 35 year old actress is the main star of the recent Hulu series ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, adapted from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel. However, she was asked a question by a fan over whether ‘Gilead’, a futuristic dystopian version of America that has been taken over by a religious sect and treats all women as maids, bore any resemblance in its workings to Moss’s adherence to the Church of Scientology.

“Love this adaptation so much,” the Instagram user, called ‘moelybanks’, wrote on Wednesday (August 16th). “Question though, does it make you think twice about Scientology? Both Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong or evil… it's just very interesting.”

Queen Of Earth Trailer

After years of looking after her father’s affairs and recently having broken up with her partner, Catherine finds herself unable to occupy her mind and turns to her best friend, Valerie, for support.

Valerie suggests the pair embark on a trip to Valerie’s family’s lake house to find some refuge from their day to day lives. Catherine feels this would be a good solution to her current state of mind; a place to paint with her friend away from the world.

Truth Trailer


Mary Mapes is the producer of CBS' '60 Minutes' and, in the run up to the 2004 presidential election, she's looking for a story for her and her team - including anchor Dan Rather - to chase. The team discovers evidence that President George W. Bush failed to complete the required amount of military service during his time in the Texas Air National Guard during the 70s. It's a story that could truly bring down the right wing government if only they can get hold of some solid documents to support the story. That's when Bill Burkett comes in; he's the former Lieutenant Colonel of the Texas Air National Guard and he claims to be in possession of some papers criticising Bush's lack of attendance for his military service, written by his commander at the time Lieutenant Colonel Jerry B. Killian. Unfortunately, in their haste to air the controversial information, the '60 Minutes' team fail to have the documents authenticated - and when several experts out the papers as forgeries, it seems the tables quickly turn on these newscasters in the most devastating way.

Listen Up Philip Trailer


Philip Lewis Friedman is a very successful writer, though not the most likeable of people. He has no shame in bragging and expressing his genius, but his persistent self-involvement starts to put quite a strain on his relationship with girlfriend Ashley. Not only that, but while the people around him are suffocating in his endless egoism, he's also finding the humdrum world of life at home particularly difficult to stomach - even without his romance issues. Soon, though, he is offered some solace when he meets his all-time favourite author Ike Zimmerman who invites him to stay with him at his country retreat and reassess his life, love and career. Will he learn to realise and appreciate the truly important things in his life? And will they even be around anymore once he has?

'Listen Up Philip' is a comedy drama which made its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It has been directed and written by Alex Ross Perry ('The Color Wheel', 'Impolex'), and has already landed several awards at a handful of other film festivals such as Locarno International and Philadelphia Film Festival. It is set to be released in cinemas in the UK on June 5th 2015.
