“Those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women at the center, are niche experiences, they are not! Audiences wants to see them, and in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people!” - Cate Blanchett
And some the greatest films are based around female characters!
HBO has been providing the world with a lot of amazing television lately. And no, I am not referring to Game of Thrones. Girls is one of my other absolute favourite shows and I have also heard great things about True Detective, and then of course, there’s Looking. Looking is by far my absolute favourite new shows of the 2013-2014 season, and is the first show in a while to accurately portray gay men. Looking centers around Jonathon Groff’s character Patrick and his group of friends and their adventures into relationships andwork in the city of San Francisco. It is so refreshing and amazing to see a show not only with the central characters being openly gay men, but also to see gay men being portrayed so realistically. Looking is incredibly smart, funny, awkward, uplifting, inspiring, well written and just overall amazing. HBO has already renewed it for a second season, and I hope it has many more seasons ahead of it. I highly, highly recommend this show.
