Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale #1

I’ll get to the point first: The Handmaid’s Tale, as adapted by Hulu, is an excellent production and one well worth any TV lover’s time. Elisabeth Moss, an actress who spent nearly a decade understanding how female characters manage a life of oppression under male domination, uses her time on Mad Men to translate a fictional written diary into an uncompromising television reality.

With that out of the way, there’s a lot to unpack regarding the several episodes we took in before the show’s wide release on Wednesday, May 26. Hulu works in the best spirit of this current golden age of television. It presents an audience that’s hungry for thought-provoking content with a story that resonates with our current, unprecedented unique political climate.

Movie Review: ‘The Good Guy’

The Good Guy

The Good Guy
Directed by: Julio DePietro
Starring: Alexis Bledel, Scott Porter, Bryan Greenberg, Anna Chlumsky, Aaron Yoo, Andrew McCarthy
Roadside Attractions
Release Date: February 19, 2010 (Limited)

If you know me or if you read the site, you probably wouldn’t think of me as someone who was into the lovey-dovey romance movies. Truth is, while I really get sickened by the ridiculously cheesy and unrealistic “rom-coms” that are mass produced to steal the incomes of a multitude of tissue-wielding women, I can admit that I enjoy a well-done romance movie from time to time. I’ve never been much of a relationship kind of person, but have still been considered something of a romantic at times, and so long as the movie is entertaining and doesn’t get out of hand, I’m down for a viewing!

Enter The Good Guy: a new film from Roadside Attractions and director Julio DePietro about a young, seemingly-perfect couple living the big city life. The movie debuted last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and follows Beth (Alexis Bledel), a sweet and beautiful young woman with a good job and a great group of friends in New York City. Beth has been seeing Tommy (Scott Porter), a Wall Street hot shot, for a few months now, and all seems to be going very well with the couple who are preparing to head to Italy on a business/vacation trip. At first the pair appear to be living the modern day fairy tale life, but when Beth meets Daniel (Bryan Greenberg) — who just happens to be the new member of Tommy’s team at work — she begins wondering if she’s where she wants to be. Tommy has all those good looks females desire and a big money job, while Daniel shows her a new, much more sensitive side to the male species. This of course creates that age-old dilemma for women: do you go for all the looks and financial security, or do you want someone who “gets you”?

Continue on reading for more and to check out the just-released trailer for The Good Guy.
