Elementary School Calls Cops on Special Needs Kindergartner for Harmless Gun Gesture

Opinion Red Police Lights Car Cops img nra-ila istock Fairfax, VA – -( There has always been ridiculous. But now there is Tredyffrin-Easttown School District ridiculous. That’s because this Pennsylvania educational board currently tops all-comers in the hotly-contested race for the most counter-productive overreaction to a perceived “threat” from an objectively harmless student. In this case, the victim was Margot, a 6-year-old kindergartner who has Down syndrome. Last November...

‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

Teacher calls cops on 6-year-old with Down syndrome who pointed a finger gun at her

An elementary school teacher in Pennsylvania called police after a kindergarten-aged girl pointed a "finger gun" pretended to shoot her. The child was not arrested. From CNN: Administrators concluded that Margot made a "transient threat" and didn't intend to harm anyone, but they still called Tredyffrin police. The district said calling law enforcement is part of its safety protocol. But [the Margot's mother Maggie] Gaines said that in her daughter's case, the district misinterpreted its own pol...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

‘Birds of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson on Writing Harley Quinn and How ‘Trainspotting’ Influences Her Writing [Interview]

DC has been a good home to screenwriter Christina Hodson. After writing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), DC and Warner Bros. hired Hodson to adapt two other comic book properties, including Batgirl. Based on the glowing reception to Birds of Prey, the studio now has another strong voice behind their comic book movies. They haven’t always this much sense of authorship and crystal clear vision. Birds of Prey is a comic book movie that doesn’t overstay its welc...

Margot Robbie Survived ‘Hot Ones’ And I’m Genuinely Proud

GOOD FOR YOU, GIRL. GOOD FOR YOU We’ve been very patient, and now it’s finally here: The season premiere of Hot Ones just dropped, babeyyyyyyy!! Season 11 opened with Academy Award-nominee and master of like, every regional American accent, Margot Robbie. Unfortunately, though, she’s definitely not a master of hot sauces. Before digging into the first wing of the gauntlet, Margot informs us that she “has the palette of a four-year-old,” and judging by the sheer terror on her face and nerv...

Jurnee Smollett-Bell Made Sure a Black Hairstylist Was on Set For Birds of Prey

Jurnee Smollett-Bell's relationship with her Birds of Prey costar Margot Robbie goes far beyond their work together on screen. The actress recently sat down with BUILD, where she briefly opened up about how producer and actress Robbie helped advocate for her during production when she stressed the importance of hiring a Black hairstylist for her character, Black Canary, who's known for having blond hair. "In preproduction when we were creating a look for the hair, for me it was very importan...

Why ‘Birds of Prey’ Took Creative Liberties With Its Comic Book Characters

With every comic book movie comes legions of comic book fans who grumble that the costume doesn’t look at all like the one on the page. Birds of Prey has received plenty of that criticism — not only are the central members of the all-female Gotham team very different from the comics, the movie revolves around Harley Quinn, a longtime Batman villain who has never been associated with the Birds of Prey on the page. But “the desire was to create characters that worked for the screen,” producer Sue...

Above: Candles and firelight at Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen. When my boyfriend, Matt, and I booked a flight to Stockholm for New Year’s last year—trying to escape what I’ve always considered the dreary and depressing few days after the holidays—we somehow didn’t realize it would be dark, very dark, that far north in the middle of winter. We learned, the first day. We took a train from the airport to the center of the city, and arrived around 2:30 pm, just as the sun was setting and the golden l...

'Marriage Story' director Noah Baumbach says Netflix's head of original movies has found a balance between traditional Hollywood and digital disruption

With more and more streaming services launching from major players like Disney and Apple, Netflix is trying to make inroads with Hollywood and shed its outsider status. The man responsible for that is Scott Stuber, its head of original films. In just over two years, Stuber has found ways to interest the big stars in Netflix projects, and tried to settle the rocky waters between the streaming giant and theater owners.  "Marriage Story" writer-director Noah Baumbach told Business Insider he beli...

Steal This Look: An Antique Dealer’s DIY Kitchen, Painted Checkerboard Floor Included

Earlier this year, Margot wrote about the charming home of antiques dealer Jonathan Burden and costume designer JJ Joseph (see Farmhouse Refresh: A Clean and Simple Family Retreat on Shelter Island). The couple had chosen to buy the old, scrappy farmhouse because nothing had been done to it—“so we didn’t have to redo bad things,” Jonathan told Margot. Instead of renovating it, they revived it, respectfully straightening its bones and polishing its surfaces. The TLC they gave to the house is evid...

‘Sibyl’ Review: A Tense Comedy of Riotously Bad Manners [NYFF 2019]

The title character in Sibyl (Viginie Efira) weaves herself a web of bedlam, not admitting that she has ensnared herself for the majority of the film. Her toxicity spills over into people’s lives. By willfully absorbing other people’s lives and allowing their troubles to fester her long existing issues, she’s in for a mess. Not to mention, said people ensnared in her web had already weaved their own toxic webs, now tangling in hers. French psychotherapist Sibyl is setting off to write her...

Manuel Margot's loses shoe, falls down going for triple

San Diego Padres center fielder Manuel Margot lost his shoe and fell down while going for a triple during Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox. It happened in the bottom of the fifth inning as Margot hit a line shot off the glove of Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers and down into the left field corner. Margot rounded second and was halfway to third when his left shoe suddenly came off, along with his shinguard, sending him stumbling to the ground as the throw came in from left field. M...
