Okay people, are you ready to freak out about this?
Abi Morgan, brilliant brilliant writer of The Hour has written this movie called Suffragette, about the early steps of feminist movement, that will feature an abundance of badass female characters fighting against oppression. No seriously, take a look at the official synopsis:

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational. [x]

And no, I’m not done here. Lo and behold: the cast.

Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Meryl Streep (yes you heard me), Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben fucking Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Samuel West.

Oh, and yeah, it will also be directed by a woman, Sarah Gavron, who’s known for Brick Lane.

I’m generally careful with advanced praise but DO YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF FEMALE CAST AND CREW KICKING ASS.

Also those of you who haven’t seen The Hour yet, do. Because this woman knows how to write her female characters (and, coincidentally, her male ones as well. What a surprise.).

I’ll be in my corner waiting for early next year (which is when they said they’d release it, but there’s no actual date set so far).

"Ferguson’s Burning," a song I wrote today about the recent indefensible police actions in Ferguson, MO; namely, the murder of Michael Brown and violence against peaceful protesters in the wake of Brown’s death.

Arrest Darren Wilson. Make cops wear cameras.

Please reblog!

Lyrics:

Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown
18 years old, now he’s dead in the ground
He shot him six times, his hands over his head
He held not a weapon, he was not a threat
Michael Brown died in the Ferguson streets
Officer Wilson got weeks of paid leave
The message was clear, broadcast over the nation:
Kill a young black man, win a vacation

Ferguson’s burning, and the world’s turning away

The folks of Missouri they could not stand by
They took to the streets and let angry flags fly
The all-white police force felt they had to step in
They met them with SWAT gear and chemical weapons
They stirred up the chaos and turned on the masses
Turned out the streetlights, wore night vision glasses
The governor urges we must react calmly
While the killers in power turn into an army

Ferguson’s burning, and the world’s turning away

When the fires burn out and the tear gas disperses
When the work is all done for the doctors and the nurses
The cops may stop shooting and the streets get less wild
But Michael Brown’s mother will never get back her child
And the hatred and fear White America harbors
Will only grow bigger beneath thick body armor
So keep a close eye on our laws and our leaders
No justice for Mike Brown, there’s none for you either

Well, again, that is quite a nice thrill, that moment of not knowing what the hell you’re going to say or what the hell you’re going to do because somehow you deal with it, somehow you move on and that’s what’s thrilling is that it’s live and you have a thousand people’s attention on you so it’s an incredibly powerful [experience]. It’s Grenouille on the scaffold. It’s quite an exciting place to be. I’ve never been freaked out by forgetting a line. It’s always quite exciting. There’s a little thrill about it (laughs) unless you fuck up ‘To be or not to be’ which is stuff you can’t repent … might as well just walk off stage.

Ben Whishaw, about what it’s like to be on stage and forget a line. (Collider, 30/12/2006)

In the same interview he talks about hanging upside down for three hours for the interrogation scene in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer: "That scene was all about surviving the dunking in the water really and there was not much else I could think about." Still, he ”likes work like that. That’s part of the fun of filming.”

marcoereus:

I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
