Natasha Lyonne's New Movie Is More Like The End Of Training Day Than Rosemary's Baby, As The Female Characters Aren't Victims.
The Orange Is the New Black actress stars opposite Chloe Sevigny in Antibirth, a film about a party animal whose life changes after she discovers she's pregnant, with a baby growing abnormally fast. It's been compared to classic horror flick Rosemary's Baby, which documents a woman giving birth to a devil child, but Natasha insists there's more female empowerment in her movie.
"Something we’ve been talking about a lot is this idea of Rosemary’s Baby, and Mia Farrow being so vulnerable in that movie, such a victim, and this is the opposite," Natasha grinned to Bustle. "I really think of it like Denzel Washington at the end of Training Day."
Another aspect both women found appealing is that there are no leading men in the feature. Chloe in particular has made a stand against taking on scripts that are male-driven, with Natasha pointing out that the idea of a Hollywood "boys' club" has now shifted to include females.

Since the loss of her mother, Doris hasn't really had much companionship. She has her best friend and work colleagues but love has always been something that's alluded her. She once had an offer of marriage but knowing that this would separate her from her mother, she declined.
After meeting the new director of art at her place of work, Doris automatically feels a connection with him. Sure, John might be a few years her junior and into very different things to herself, but Doris has a niggling feeling she can't leave alone. Doris might be a little bookish and bespectacled but she decides to explore new methods to attract her man.
Along the way Doris befriends some of John's friends, who at first might seem entirely different to Doris but in actuality have a lot of similarities. Doris must find a way to balance her new and old friends and also win her man. Hello, My Name is Doris actually started out as an eight minute short called Doris and the Intern, written and directed by Laura Terruso. Director Michael Showalter instantly saw the potential in the initial footage and started work on a large scale version of the film.

Morgan Freeman, Jack Black And Natasha Lyonne Are Urging The U.s. Public To Support President Barack Obama's Proposed Nuclear Deal With Iran.
The actors have teamed up with anti-nuclear organisation Global Zero to pledge their support for Obama's long-awaited deal with Iran, which aims to prevent the Middle Eastern country from developing nuclear weapons.
It needs to be passed through Congress in September (15) and the stars have appeared in a video asking the U.S. public to put pressure on politicians to vote in favour of the deal.
Freeman says, "The agreement currently on the table is the best way to insure (sic) that Iran doesn't build a f**king bomb... and the alternative to (diplomacy) is war... and s**t, we've got a deal on the table that keeps us all safe."

After her sister Shannon returns to Fresno, California following her stint in rehab for sex addiction (which in turn came after she was fired as a schoolteacher), Martha takes it upon herself to help her get a fresh start. She invites her to stay with her and gets her a job as a hotel maid in Fresno Suites where Martha also works. It isn't long before Shannon relapses big time, and her failure to maintain responsibility results in her accidentally killing a hotel guest, who also happens to be an Olympic hammer-thrower. She manages to persuade Martha to help hide the body, but before they can get very far they are discovered by a couple named Ruby and Gerald - and they want $25,000 in three days to stay quiet about the incident. The only option they have is to commit more crime, and so they rob a sex shop in order to flog the stock and make up the money. They're hardly professionals and they'll be lucky to escape this mess scot free, but maybe Shannon can finally learn to think about others before herself.

Orange Is The New Black Star Natasha Lyonne Is Considering Buying A Retreat In Iceland Because She's Disgusted By American Summer Time.
The actress has just returned from a trip to Bjork's homeland and admits she was so taken by the people and the low temperatures that she started looking into buying property.
She says, "They (Icelandic people) love wool, fish, they get very excited when it's not dark anymore... I think there's a lot of depression that kicks in... We really started to think about getting a summer home there... (and met with) real estate brokers.
"The houses are great looking and the people are very interesting... The heat is disgusting, just in general in the rest of the world. I don't like heat, I don't like shorts, I don't like the filth and the muck that comes with it ... I don't like having my limbs exposed. It makes me very tense.

Orange Is The New Black Star Natasha Lyonne Fears She Has Missed Her Chance To Appear Nude On Screen And Wishes She Had The Chance To At Least Go Topless When Her Boobs Were "Perkier".
The 36 year old admits she's usually bra-less and shirtless when she's at home and would still like to show off her body in the right role.
She tells Playboy, "I always felt like saving my t*ts for the right thing to come along, and it never happened.
"I would be more inclined to do a nude scene if it wasn't about sex, but I wish it had done it when they were perkier, because now it's going to be significantly less exciting.

With clips from more than 200 teen movies made in the decade after 1995's Clueless, this lively kaleidoscopic documentary entertainingly traces how America has depicted the teen experience on screen. The film's structure feels a little deliberate, and it of course is looking at a portrayal of puberty, not the real thing. But it's inventively edited by first-time feature director Charlie Lyne, with a snappy pace and some seriously interesting observations along the way.
These 10 years are significant because they marked an expansion in the style of coming-of-age movies, encompassing genres from comedy to sci-fi to horror to explore the clashes between high school factions of jocks, nerds, burnouts, artists and mean girls. Taken together, these films paint a vivid, perhaps exaggerated portrait of adolescence, including key rites of passage, the mob mentality, and the various things that feel threatening to the "herd" (like smart kids or loners). High school is the time when teens experiment with alcohol, partying, rebellion and sex, while facing up to peer pressure and their own mortality for the first time. And ultimately, everyone must navigate this emotionally overwrought period on his or her own.
The film breaks down this experience into five chapters: fitting in (as either a maverick or conformist), acting out (challenging the rules), losing yourself (developing your own identity), toeing the line (being forced to obey the rules) and moving on (growing into an adult). This kind of makes the movie feel like an academic thesis, especially with the somewhat overwritten narration (voiced by teen star Fairuza Balk). But the movie is packed with telling connections between this vast variety of movies, all of which reflect reality without ever depicting it too honestly. Thankfully, Lyne's editing is knowing and often very funny, putting scenes together to say something completely unexpected.
