Terry’s Picks: Women Speak Out, Jessica Jones, Carol

Speak out: The New York Times published a comprehensive look at women directors and executives, taking aim at the vicious cycle of sexism that pervades the industry.

Super woman: This weekend’s big binge watch was Marvel’s new Netflix series, Jessica Jones. Many are calling it one of the best superhero shows ever, and it has a lot of say about female power and consent.

Passion project: Screenwriter Phyllis Nagy fought for 20 years to get Patricia Highsmith’s The Price of Salt adapted for the silver screen. The result is the spectacular Carol – NYWIFT members were treated to a special advance screening last week.
