Caught a great film - with the worst title - this morning. I think Pierce Brosnan is so under appreciated for his diversity of roles. And I don’t think I’d ever seen Trine Dyrholm before, but she played this role with so much humanity. Lovely film. Hate that it has such a corny name. What I found even more interesting is that the soundtrack had several songs from one of my favorite movies, Moonstruck. Love Is All You Need almost has the same level of humor, angst and romance as Moonstruck, but it’s a tad bit more serious. If get a chance, check out the trailer, and the film.

Loved this insight from Kerry Washington on how being pregnant changed how she had to portray Olivia Pope. 
fierceforblackwomen:

We know you’re caught up in the #ScandalFinale! But we just had to share how much we love how honest Kerry Washington is about how her pregnancy affected her role as the dynamic Olivia Pope: “I work very physically as an actor. The biggest challenge for me has been how to be this person [Olivia Pope] with the personal transformation that’s going on with me physically & how to stay true to the character. That hasn’t been easy.” More via The Hollywood Reporter. #Scandal #Gladiators #Scandalistas #FierceWomen

Today I sent an invite to Spelman College students to attend an interest meeting for 2014-2015 membership in the college’s Pretty Brown Girl organization. I’m still beaming at their first completely student-produced International Pretty Brown Girl Day campus event back in March. Missed it? Here’s a photo/video/Twitter recap: I was so proud of student leaders! They are committed to empowering and celebrating all women of color.
