Marvel’s Jessica Jones

Marvel's Jessica Jones

Trailer description by

In this trailer, we meet Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), a superhero-turned-private detective struggling with the damage inflicted on her by Kilgrave, a supervillain capable of deadly mind control. Now, Kilgrave has returned and is targeting Jessica and everyone around her. We don’t know much more (or see more than a screenshot’s worth of Carrie-Anne Moss), but we absolutely can’t wait to find out when we most likely watch every episode in what sitting. Krysten Ritter seems on top of her game as the tortured lead, and the intense energy here is off the charts. November 20th can’t come soon enough.

Early screenings show that Jessica shares a particularly special relationship with another female character that hints at a past relationship, and we do know that Carrie-Anne Moss will be playing Jeryn Hogarth, a “high-powered lawyer” who’s cheating on her female partner with another woman. So we meet gay characters. Now we just need to assurance the show will live up to our high hopes, and this new trailer looks like just the proof we needed.



This movie sounds very interesting.
First there was not much to find about it but now there is enough info to make a informative post! 🙂

Plot summary

Set in 1950s New York, two women from very different backgrounds find themselves in the throes of love. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) threatens her competence as a mother when Carol’s involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) comes to light. As Carol leaves the comfort of home to travel with Therese, an internal journey of self-discovery coincides with her new sense of space.

This movie lets us see how the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

I think it is a must see for all women!!!
Here a teaser

It is the first film in history to be shot in the Houses of Parliament, done with the permission of MPs!!


A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational. (thanks to IMDB)

Suffragette is a 2015 British historical period drama film directed by Sarah Gavron and written by Abi Morgan. The film centres on early members of the British women’s suffrage movement of the late 19th and early 20th century. The film stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Anne-Marie Duff
The official trailer:

Let me know what you think about this movie.

Hillary pushed by daughter Chelsea to support same-sex marriage

Chelsea Clinton has said she “absolutely” pushed her mum Hillary into supporting same-sex marriage hence the title: Hillary pushed by daughter Chelsea to support same-sex marriage
Chelsea Clinton

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Chelsea Clinton claimed to have helped shift Hillary’s perspective on marriage equality.

Explaining her own commitment to issue she said: “When I got married in 2010 to my best friend it just crystallised so fundamentally to me that everyone should be allowed to marry their best friend… So I joined the equal marriage fight in New York and we got equal marriage in New York in 2011.”

She added: “I am just so proud that our country is the country that I want my daughter to grow up in so she can marry whoever she want to marry.”

Hillary is now fully commited LGBT rights, promising to continue the fight for further rights, and she said earlier this year that she was “proud to celebrate a historic victory for marriage equality.”

But she has been criticised for her historic stance on LGBT rights, most recently for the revelation that she tried to block gay-friendly children’s passports in 2011.

The Presidential hopeful has made light of her previous position though, mocking herself for not supporting LGBT rights sooner in a Sunday Night Live sketch earlier this month.

Mrs Clinton appeared on Ellen’s show last month where she bust out some serious dance moves to hit US song “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).

Glaad is coming to the UK!

Glaad is coming to the UK!


LGBT media organisation GLAAD has announced the launch of a UK operation as part of its growing global work.

GLAAD, the not-for-profit organisation aimed at promoting LGBT diversity in media, is launching a UK-based operation to support LGBT voices around the world.

The group regularly releases reports holding US broadcasters to account and monitoring diversity, as well as speaking out for LGBT rights and bolstering LGBT news coverage.

GLAAD this month launches its global operation, with activists holding an international board meeting at the House of Lords in London this week.

Sarah Kate Ellis, CEO and President of GLAAD, said: “For 30 years, GLAAD has worked to reshape the way Americans think about LGBT people, building understanding through visibility and increasing acceptance across the nation.

“Now, as LGBT people around the world continue to face great injustice, GLAAD is expanding its global footprint to support the tremendous work of LGBT activists across the globe. Together, we will accelerate acceptance for LGBT people everywhere.”

The organisation has committed $1 million to their global expansion, and will have initially have one member of staff dedicated solely to global work.

International work so far has included support for activists fighting to secure a Yes vote in Ireland’s same-sex marriage referendum, and support for LGBT activists across Nigeria, China and Russia.

As part of their increasing international work GLAAD will extend its Spirit Day campaign, to include events in London and resource kits in additional languages, as well as an international board meeting to discuss how to accelerate acceptance of LGBT communities in the UK and abroad.

Anthony Watson, member of GLAAD’s Board of Directors, said of the global expansion:  “This is a timely and vital step forward to bring GLAAD’s critical work to the international community in a meaningful and powerful way. As a British Citizen, I am deeply proud GLAAD choose the United Kingdom to base our international operations. From London GLAAD will be able to help promote positive portrayals of LGBT people in the media – not only across the UK, but across Europe and further afield.”
