13 Reasons Why: You've Definitely Seen Tyler's Mom on Netflix Before

If you're obsessed with 13 Reasons Why and already binge-watched the new season, you may have noticed all the new faces to the series. We've gotten to meet several parental figures, including Tyler's mother. If she looks familiar to you, don't worry, you're not crazy - you've definitely seen her in another popular Netflix series.

Maria Dizzia, the actress who portrays Mrs. Down, also plays Polly Harper on Orange Is the New Black. You may remember her as Piper's former best friend . . . the one who ends up stealing her husband while she's away in prison.

Dizzia's TV career began with small roles on Law & Order, Fringe, and the short-lived Amy Smart crime series, Smith. One of her most notable roles was as the cult-den mother Katie in the 2011 thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene, which earned her a nomination for a Gotham Independent Film Award.

'The Meyerowitz Stories' Review: All-Star Family Dramedy Is Flat-Out Brilliant

'The Meyerowitz Stories' Review: All-Star Family Dramedy Is Flat-Out Brilliant
Noah Baumbach makes family movies that feel lived in – the kind that banter, bristle and sometimes bleed. The real kind. To the company of The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding and While We're Young, you can add The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), a literate New York comedy of bad family manners in which Baumbach rarely sends out a line of dialogue without a sting in its tail.

The film plays like a series of New Yorker short stories bound by blood ties. The Meyerowitz clan lives

Film Review: Maggie's Plan

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ The Weltanschauung of New York's upper-middle intelligentsia is almost custom built for a good run- a-round comedy of manners. Rebecca Miller's latest film, Maggie's Plan, is one more addition to a considerable canon of light, loving satire that laughs at the pretensions and follies of the over-educated as they luxuriate in so-called 'high-class problems'. It's a delightful movie that makes conscious nods to Shakespeare's comic contrivances and is similar in spirit to Noah Baumbach's While We're Young.

Fangs for the memory by Anne-Katrin Titze

Christopher Walken: "When people talk about art, I get nervous." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Jason Bateman's impish The Family Fang, screenplay by Rabbit Hole playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, adapted from Kevin Wilson's novel, stars Nicole Kidman, Christopher Walken, Maryann Plunkett with Jason Butler Harner, Kathryn Hahn, Marin Ireland and Michael Chernus (memorable in Noah Baumbach's While We're Young and James Strouse's People Places Things).

When I ran into Vincent Lindon at Félix in SoHo and told him I had just talked with Christopher Walken at the Tribeca Film Festival, he asked "has he stayed in touch with Robert De Niro?" since they made Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter.

De Palma Documentary Trailer Dives Into The Director's Filmography

You may recognize Noah Baumbach as the director of movies like The Squid and The Whale and Frances Ha, and much like the protagonists of his recent movie While We're Young, he's taken a trip into the world of documentary filmmaking for his next project.

Noah Baumbach Now Filming Next Movie 'The Meyerowitz Stories' Starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman & Emma Thompson

It looks like Noah Baumbach is back to his secretive ways. The director shot "Frances Ha" and "Mistress America" off the grid, at least as far as Hollywood goes, eschewing formal announcements in the Hollywood trades. And though "While We're Young" followed a more traditional path into production, it looks like Baumbach is back to working on the down-low, as much one can in New York City.

The Film Stage reveals that Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, and Emma Thompson are in the movie that tells the story of an estranged New York family coming together in preparation of artist and patriarch Harold’s career retrospective.

A24 Joins the Oscar Crowd

Chris here to celebrate our favorite indie distributor. A24 has been steadily been building their reputation since launching about 3 years ago, and yesterday they finally landed their first Oscar nominations. They've previously housed longshot candidates like Spring Breakers and A Most Violent Year, but this year saw three of their films break through: Room, Ex Machina, and Amy.

A24 started 2015 proving that they could compete with the larger indie outfits by delivering at the box office. Ex Machina was a surprise hit and became their highest grosser, with Amy and Noah Baumbach's While We're Young also breaking out. Room could pass all of them with the help of its four major nominations and The Witch looks primed to be late-winter mini-hit, as well.

The nominations feel richly earned, given that they've fostered worthy candidates like Under the Skin, The Spectacular Now, and A Most Violent Year that eluded the awards race.

'Mad Max: Fury Road': National Board of Review Best Film Award winner. National Board of Review 2015 Awards: First indication of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' awards season potential Going over the December 2015 movie awards not previously discussed on this site, we begin with the National Board of Review Awards, announced on Dec. 1.

The 50 best films of 2015 in the UK: No 7 – Mistress America

Continuing our countdown of the best movies released in the UK this year, we remember Noah Baumbach’s zippy screwball comedy about female friendship

• Tell us your favourite film of the year … and comment on ours

• See the full UK top 50 so far

One of the many recurring themes in Noah Baumbach’s work is the often dangerous discrepancy between how people want to be perceived and the reality of who they really are. In The Squid and the Whale, Jeff Daniels saw himself as a revered academic but he was a petty braggart. In Margot at the Wedding, Nicole Kidman saw herself as a writer to be admired but she was a sociopath to be pitied. In While We’re Young, Baumbach’s other film of 2015, Ben Stiller saw himself as a documentarian with morals but he was an impetuous manchild with a Peter Pan complex.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Named Best Film by National Board of Review

  • Moviefone
The National Board of Review is known for its eclectic decisions comes awards season, handing unconventional choices its top honors year after year. But this year's selection of best film may truly be the organization's boldest pick yet.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" landed Nbr's best film distinction for 2015, beating out more high-profile (and more conventional) candidates like "Spotlight," "Carol," "Room," "Joy," "The Revenant," and "The Martian." All those flicks have been in the Oscar conversation for months, but not many expected "Fury Road" to get much awards season love, despite critical and audience adoration.

And that may not change, either. Last year, the Nbr awarded its best film prize to "A Most Violent Year," which was completely shut out of the Academy Awards nominations. It's also hailed a bunch of Oscar also-rans in the past, including Best Picture nominees (and losers) "Her" (2013), "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012), "Hugo" (2011), "The Social Network" (2010), and

'Mistress America' (2015) Movie Review

Noah Baumbach's latest, Mistress America, never stops to let you catch up to its momentum, and it's all the better for it. You either get into its offbeat, fast-mouthed rhythm -- initially or eventually -- or you don't. If you do follow along and enjoy its rapid-speed groove, it's a raucous good time. It's not flawless, as its story beats are moderately traditional to a fault and some of its characters lose themselves, occasionally coming across more like dialogue machines than fleshed-out characters. Yet, the film remains finely polished and a constant delight, easily among the most refined and accomplished works the director's produced thus far. Lonely college freshman Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a writer desperately searching for inspiration. Her short stories lack flavor, spirit or spark and, because of this, she can't gain acceptance into the exclusive Mobius Literary Club on campus. Her lack of social suave also
