One of the first stops on the office tour Maeve Reilly is recording for her YouTube channel is her gallery wall of press moments: dressing the singer and actor Janelle Monáe for the 2017 Oscars, in an embellished Elie Saab Haute Couture gown, in Vogue; the first time Reilly made the Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful Stylists list, also in 2017; a Coveteur tour of her closet from 2020. “This was the best gift my ex-boyfriend ever gave me,” she tells everyone in the room before deciding not to shout him out in the video. Reilly is the 34-year-old stylist best known for helping create model Hailey Bieber’s often-imitated street style and the sexy-glamorous looks worn by actor Megan Fox. Today, as she leads the tour of her airy Beverly Grove, Los Angeles office, she’s dressed in an oversized sand-colored blazer over a matching corset top, baggy jeans and Nikes. Her shoulder-length blond hair is stick straight, her lips in their signature glossy pout.

Ahmed Farah, Somali-Dutch film producer and director of the film Ayaanle, is seen at a rooftop of a building in Eastleigh district of Nairobi, Kenya November 9, 2021. "I only have two lines," the character - whose name, Ayaanle, is also the film's title - complains bitterly. To recoup the bribe, he impersonates a member of Somalia's al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency to scam $500 from a gullible Western journalist. But there were upsides too: the Eastleigh community rallied around the film, donating refreshments, or homes to use as sets. Most of the crew and actors had experienced the kind of police harassment shown in the film, Abdirahman said, and many were nervous about publicly acting like terrorists - especially when police were around.

Preet Patel and Anusha Gandhi were living in a one-bedroom rental in Jersey City, N.J., when the pandemic arrived to scramble their priorities. Los Angeles topped the couple’s wish list. Los Angeles “felt like it was a similar vibe to New York, but in a warmer place,” Ms. Gandhi said. Dr. Patel wanted to be closer to the Westside of Los Angeles, as he was hoping to develop a clinical practice in the area. The couple found the apartments they toured in Los Angeles to be larger than those in New York and New Jersey, but the buildings were smaller and had fewer amenities.

GARY“Licorice Pizza,” a shaggy, fitfully brilliant romp from Paul Thomas Anderson, takes place in a 1973 dream of bared midriffs and swinging hair, failures and pretenders. There’s DNA from both old and New Hollywood in “Licorice Pizza,” a coming-of-age romance in which no one grows up. The film’s improbable teenage hero is Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman, son of Philip Seymour Hoffman), another classic striver. A child performer who’s hit maximum adolescent awkwardness, Gary is 15 and aging out of his professional niche. An amusingly portentous cherry bomb explodes in a toilet and before long Gary is ogling Alana (Alana Haim, the rock musician), an assistant for a creep who’s taking the kids’ pictures.

But missing even in more inclusive portrayals is a South Asian girl who is purely confident and clear about what she wants, viewers said. While the character’s Indian background isn’t the center of her college experience, she says South Asian women can pick up on the story behind her motivations. But with a generation of first-generation South Asian Americans becoming adults, characters like Bela might represent a turning point in how communities treat sexuality. Movies and shows in which South Asian characters are normal and desirable are slowly beginning to emerge, but it’s an area in which Hollywood has historically had a problem. Kaling’s last project, “Never Have I Ever,” marked a change — an open door for South Asian American main characters, Singh said.

Pavlina Zipkova, head of the Czech Film Commission said the skills shortage in the country's film production industry was acute, though there are no specific estimates. "There is pressure on national film commissions and film institutions as well as on local studios and film production companies," Zipkova told Reuters. Netflix, Amazon and Apple declined to comment on production staff shortages in the region and the possible consequences. The region now ranks as the biggest international film production hub in Europe after Britain, with its landscape of rolling countryside and castles ideal for historical and fantasy shows. "If people keep their eyes open and want to work in the film industry, now is a pretty good time," he said.

I just thought, “Can I do this?” Even when I’m not in a monastery, I still very much live that lifestyle.

(CNN) Sandra Bullock has shared the big screen with Keanu Reeves twice -- but she's down for a third and even has an idea. Speaking to Esquire magazine for a profile on her "Speed" co-star, Bullock said she'd "love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we both die." "We play two funny old people. While waiting 18 years for this to happen doesn't sound appealing, the spirit of the idea is solid. Though they were never romantically involved, she said, Reeves was and remains and uniquely thoughtful person.

The House met in April 1946 to vote on the contempt citation, and whether to send it to the Justice Department. “This committee is an established committee of this House,” said one of them, Clyde Doyle of California. Of the 430 House members present, 292 voted for contempt; 82 declined to vote and just 56 voted against. Bryan, Barsky and the bulk of the refugee group’s board went to jail, some for a year. Having proven its power, HUAC next went after Hollywood, sending dozens of recalcitrant screenwriters to jail.

Tennis champion Peng Shuai took to social media earlier this month to accuse a former top-ranking official in the Chinese Communist Party of sexually assaulting her. Within 30 minutes the post was scrubbed from the internet in China. She disappeared and no one has heard directly from her since. For decades, Western athletes, celebrities and corporations have diligently kept silent in the face of Chinese human-rights violations. International hotel chains, airlines, apparel brands, sports leagues and Hollywood studios have steered away from “sensitive topics” such as Tibet’s independence, the Uyghur genocide, Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement and Taiwan’s sovereignty.
