I Love Dick: Full Season—DICK, DICK, DICK, DICK, DICK, DICK, DICK, DICK  Season 1, Ep 0

Based on the 1997 roman à clef of the same name, this funny, sexy, beautiful adaptation stars Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn, and Griffin Dunne as the story's tragicomic love triangle broken over an epistolary artwork, all the while struggling to make sense of their desires, shame, and creative impulses. Well, maybe Dick isn't struggling. He's just Dick. Amazon's description: Adapted from the lauded feminist novel, I LOVE DICK is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It tells the story of a struggling married couple, Chris and Sylvere, and their obsession with a charismatic professor named Dick. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I LOVE DICK charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the deification of a reluctant messiah. [more inside]

Movie: Mustang (2015)

The widely praised debut from Turkish-French director Deniz Gamze Ergüven, from her original screenplay, traces the sexual and emotional coming of age of five orphaned sisters as they confront the joys and limitations of growing up in a conservative town in rural Turkey, searching for their own power in a series of dark and comedic events. Trailer for the film, which was France's submission for Best Foreign Language Film at this year's Oscars. "Mustang is at once feisty, poetic, hilarious, and gut-wrenching. It’s like a feminist 400 Blows, or if the punk teens from We Are the Best! were cast in a remake of The Great Escape."
