Terry’s Picks: Suffragette, Effie Brown, Jeremy Renner

Go see Suffragette, if you
haven’t already. It is well made with really good performances by Carey
Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter and is a part of women’s history that I
didn’t know. But what was most eye-opening was the crawl at the end of the film
showing in which years that women got the vote in various countries. Not until
the 40s and 50s in France, Italy and Switzerland; 2015 for Saudi Arabia.

Be About It: Producer Effie Brown, who went
head-to-head with Matt Damon over diversity on Project Greenlight, told
Saturday’s Produced By: New York conference this about
diversity: “Stop talking about it, and be about it.”

Man up: Jeremy Renner’s
response to American Hustle co-star Jennifer Lawrence’s call for equal pay?
“That’s not my job” to help. We need our male allies to stand up to the system,
too. “Don’t know contracts and money,” he says? Learn.
