Hugo Blick–creator of political thriller THE HONORABLE WOMAN–discusses the dream-casting that is Maggie Gyllenhaal and the emotionally charged, real-life conflict he chose as the series backdrop.
In her eclectic film career, THE HONORABLE WOMAN’s Maggie Gyllenhaal has portrayed a great spread of interesting and complicated women. But which Maggie character are you? The personality test results are in, and 53% of fans found their mind-match in Jane Craddock from Crazy Heart.

THE HONORABLE WOMAN’s leading lady Maggie Gyllenhaal has truly done it all. From her indie turn in Donnie Darko to her Oscar-nominated performance for Crazy Heart to her big screen starring role in The Dark Knight, she’s proven to be one of the most versatile actresses out there. Want a primer on your soon-to-be-favorite baroness?…
Do you love a good thriller? Deadly secrets, espionage, spies—THE HONORABLE WOMAN has it all. Watch SundanceTV’s “brilliant” (Hollywood Reporter) new series starring Maggie Gyllenhaal Thursdays 10/9c. Not enough? Investigate the following:
You’ve got to give the Fifty Shades of Grey books credit. The erotic trilogy by E.L. James has single-handedly made BDSM mainstream (now everyone knows what a safe word is), been a boon to the sex toy industry (hello, love beads!), and improved the sex lives of many a long-married couple (a chapter a day will keep the couple’s therapist away!). But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture or at the very least, one better depiction.
As anticipation builds for the US premiere of THE HONORABLE WOMAN, July 31, 10/9C on SundanceTV, The Wall Street Journal and others grill Maggie Gyllenhaal on her star turn as shadowy Israeli heiress Nessa Stein. Meanwhile, Hollywood Reporter’s TV critic hails the series as “the show we’ll all be talking about very soon.”

Summer may not officially end until later in September, but come on: Labor Day has passed, and summer is over. It’s time to put away summer spectacles and let cool breezes and chillier moods wash over you. You can get away with less ebullient movies in the fall than you can in the summer; this goes for Sundance Channel, too — just check out this month’s lineup. It’s hard to get too bummed out by a well-told story or a stylishly made film (then again: DANCER IN THE DARK), but these are 10 seriously messed-up stories. In ascending order of potential to disturb you…
What exactly is it about Maggie Gyllenhaal?
She is not a classic beauty, and yet she is beautiful; she does not convey raw sexuality, and yet she is sexy. And how. Watch SECRETARY tonight at 8P on Sundance Channel if you don’t believe us (and especially if you do).
You’ve got to give the Fifty Shades of Grey books credit. The erotic trilogy by E.L. James has single-handedly made BDSM mainstream (now everyone knows what a safe word is), been a boon to the sex-toy industry (hello, love beads!) and improved the sex lives of many a long-married couple (a chapter a day will keep the couple’s therapist away!). But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture — or at the very least, one better depiction. The 2002 indie film SECRETARY, a Sundance favorite, blows Fifty out of the water, if you ask us. Here’s why.
Beware the ides of June, for there will be films featuring sparkly vampires as lovelorn twenty-somethings (and not, you know, teens), art world sluts of a different kind and Steve Coogan. We’ve got a slew of indie comedies on tap this week, along with some Tilda Swinton freaking out as only Tilda Swinton can (it must be the cheekbones).

It’s an interesting enough starting point: What do two people with only vague ambitions and low funds (low enough to have a cardboard window in their dilapidated trailer but not low enough, oddly, to fly all around the US and Canada) do when they discover they’re having a baby in a town where they no longer know anyone? Road trip! Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) go from Phoenix to Madison to Montreal to Miami to visit one wacky friend after another, from comically slutty Allison Janney to comically new age-y Maggie Gyllenhaal.
