A Brazilian social-realist drama from Independent Spirit Someone to Watch award-winning director Alexandre Moratto. Christian Malheiros, Tales Ordakji, and Caio Martinez Pacheco star in Socrates.

After his mother's sudden death, Socrates, a 15-year-old living on the margins of São Paulo's coast, must survive on his own. As he faces isolation because of his sexuality, his search for a decent, worthy life reaches a breaking point. Produced by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes), Socrates is the debut feature film from 29-year-old Brazilian-American filmmaker Alexandre Moratto. It is the first feature produced by the Querô Institute in Brazil where it was co-written, produced, and acted by at-risk teenagers from local low-income communities, with the support of UNICEF.

They had created themselves together, and they always saw themselves, their youth, their love, their lost youth and lost love, their failures and memories, as a sort of living fiction

With the release of Flashback, I’ve shared a part of my story with you... a story that is far too common. I wanted to take a moment to offer a list of resources for those who are victims or know victims of rape, and sexual violence.

Please familiarize yourself with what these amazing organizations and programs have to offer. Education leads to conversation which helps alleviate the fear of seeking help. If you wish to donate, that information is available via their websites.

Please know that there is help out there, you are not alone. I love you,

"Pink Champagne explores my tumultuous relationship with alcohol, from within the lighter context of fun and partying, to the darker moments where it's consumed in excess and/or isolation in a misled attempt to mask pain," Steve Grand says of his new video. "I think on some level, everyone can relate to what it's like to have a relationship with something that can go from frivolous and fun, to abusive and toxic. For some of us, identifying that line between 'fun' and 'toxic,' isn't always so black and white, and that's where we find ourselves getting into trouble." Get it.

The UK's answer to the Jackson Five, Five Star (siblings Stedman, Lorraine, Denise, Doris and Delroy Pearson, managed by father Buster Pearson) scored four Top 20 albums and 15 Top 40 singles between 1985 and 1988.

In 1990, Stedman (one of two cute brothers in the group) pleaded guilty to a charge of public indecency, after he was arrested for cottaging in a public toilet in London. Rupert Murdoch's rightwing hate rag The Sun reported the story as the "Sex Disgrace of 5 Star Stedman". The damage done, both to him and the group, by this homophobic police entrapment, and the moral panic whipped up by the conservative media, is incalculable.

Back to the thrilling and infectious The Slightest Touch, which reached number four in the UK singles chart, and was lifted from their second album, Silk & Steel. Enjoy.

Rock Hudson, Robert Stack and Dorothy Malone tackle another hard boiled melodrama directed by Douglas Sirk in The Tarnished Angels (1957), based on the novel Pylon by William Faulkner.

This follow-up to their 1956 hit Written On The Wind teams up the successful trio along with veteran character actors Jack Carson and Robert Middleton in a fast paced, exciting screenplay about the lives of stunt pilots during the Great Depression. Hudson gives one of the best performances of his career as a disillusioned, alcoholic reporter who is inspired by the risk taking of the aerial daredevils and Dorothy Malone brings a sad–eyed pathos to the role of the wife who threw her life and her dignity away for the man she loves. It’s Sirk at his best and Hudson, Stack, Carson and Malone at the top of their game.  Steve Hayes

Bette Davis and Mary Astor square off for the love of George Brent in Edmund Goulding’s classic The Great Lie (1941).

This is the tale of two women who despite their mutual hatred of each other, agree to strike up a bargain and create a “great lie” in order to save the life and reputation of someone they love. Davis and Astor bonded and re-wrote the script daily , with the result that Astor won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. It’s great fun, like watching a prize fight with two actresses at the top of their game and with able support from loyal Hattie McDaniel and icy Lucille Watson. You won’t want to miss it!  Steve Hayes
