My Lovely Wife is a dark, twisted psychological thriller

It’s hard to say much about My Lovely Wife, by Samantha Downing, without spoiling the twists. The story is told by the husband (we never learn his name). He and his wife (Millicent) do bad things to spice up their marriage, but they also appear normal to the people who know them. They've been married for 15 years, have two children and respectable jobs (he’s a tennis pro at a country club, she’s a real estate agent). They have friends and go to parties and dinners. Even though they know that the...

From Wholesale to Scale: How A Former Interior Designer is Keeping Up With Unexpected Demand

It’s not uncommon to come back from a vacation with fond memories and treasured purchases from your destination. What’s somewhat less common is turning a favorite vacation keepsake into a thriving business, but that’s exactly what Milicent Armstrong, founder of Artemis Design Co, did after a trip to Turkey in 2007. “I saw Kilim shoes and bags the first time I travelled to Istanbul,” says Milicent, referring to accessories crafted from repurposed Kilim carpets, a centuries-old traditional design...

Here's Why John Krasinski Pushed To Cast A Deaf Actress in A Quiet Place

This Friday saw the release of the film A Quiet Place, where a post-apocalypse family of four must live in silence to avoid being killed by blind, sound-tracking monsters. John Krasinski, who directed, co-wrote, and starred in the film alongside wife Emily Blunt, made a very important casting choice for the character Regan.It’s all too common that we see characters with disabilities played by able-bodied actors (and of course, far too many white people have acted in roles for people of color). ...

‘A Quiet Place’ Producers on the Last-Minute Creature Design and Casting Without a Plan B [Interview]

John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place had its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival on March 9th (read my review here), during which a theater filled with rowdy film fans sat in riveted silence, absorbing this terrifying, largely dialogue-free horror film that is unlike any other. A Quiet Place producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (The Purge, Ouija, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jack Ryan) spoke with me about that memorable screening, what it was like working with real-life married couple Krasinski an...

A Different Sort of Time Travel: Producer Christine Vachon on 'Wonderstruck'

The year's most unique children's movie comes from a most unlikely auteur, Todd Haynes, a filmmaker known for films that have all but exclusively appealed to an older demographic. Wonderstruck weaves together two stories set in New York City, 50 years apart. One, presented silently and in black and white, takes place in the movie palace heydey of 1927 and follows a deaf girl named Rose (Millicent Simmonds); the other, set in 1977 and presented in full color, follows a deaf boy ...

Pam Foley celebrates the creation of a new union for visual, applied and socially engaged artistsI concur with Martin Jennings (Letters, 17 April) that Millicent Fawcett is the right feminist for a new statue and with Amelia Rowcroft (Letters, 19 April), when she makes the valid point about “big name artists” employing other artists to do the unacknowledged and often woefully underpaid donkey work.

Millicent Fawcett was a heroine deserving of a statue | Letters

 Rachel Holmes (Opinion, 15 April) does Millicent Fawcett less than justice. Of course Millicent was the daughter of her time and place (born in 1847 to a local businessman in a small coastal town in Suffolk). I spent several years writing a book largely about her (In the Steps of Exceptional Women: The Story of the Fawcett Society) and certainly did not always agree with her, particularly over her attitude to the first world war (she declined to join the brave women who went to the Hague in 191...

Following some of the best snowfall months in recent memory throughout January and February, March ushered in some classic spring skiing conditions. While it’s easy to associate spring skiing with slushy slopes, sunshine, and goggle tans, don’t forget: March is historically the snowiest month of the year in Utah and...

Somewhere in an attic: the Emily Dickinson publishing dilemma

She’s been called “the myth of Amherst,” “the woman in white,” and a “recluse,” but the truth about Emily Dickinson and her writings is still being revealed, 130 years after her death. It’s an intriguing story of love, betrayal, and unlikely collaborations, and one that provokes several questions about the role that special collections and archives play in revealing important literary, historical, and biographical information to the public. This story begins, rather oddly, at the end. Emily Dick...

Through this program we have been able to support projects that we would have never reached through our online application; people who live in rural areas and do not have access to the Intern...
