A comedy about emergency contraception? It’s about ‘the world around us,’ says director Natalie Morales

Published

on

Mature-rated teen comedies often feature raunchy quests like getting alcohol for a party or losing your virginity. But Cuban American actor and director Natalie Morales wanted to make a movie that looks and feels more like the complicated reality she sees off screen. And her feature comedy “Plan B,” which premieres Friday on Hulu, delivers exactly that — two teenage girls of color having to overcome funny, sad and genuinely absurd moments on a road trip to get the morning-after pill.

“There are a lot of messages in this movie, but mostly it wasn’t made with the intent to hit you over the head with anything,” Morales said, “other than perhaps seeing yourself represented or seeing your daughters represented or seeing someone that’s like you — and feeling understood.”

Sunny (played by Kuhoo Verma) and Lupe (played by Victoria Moroles) are best friends who help each other cope with teenage anxieties, such as fitting in, high school, love and sex.

They also share a bond as the daughters of immigrant parents —Sunny is Indian American and Lupe is Mexican American — which gives a fresh touch of diversity to a movie genre that has been largely dominated by white teenage boys. 

The friends set off on a romp through South Dakota to get emergency contraception after a condom malfunctions during Sunny’s first sexual encounter and a pharmacist refuses to give her the morning-after pill.

Parents and teenagers in South Dakota could relate to Sunny’s predicament. The Food and Drug Administration made the morning-after pill available without prescription to women ages 15 and older in 2013. But some states, like South Dakota, have conscience clauses that allow pharmacists to legally refuse prescriptions based on religious or moral beliefs

While politics has complicated access to basic reproductive health care, data from 2017 to 2019 show that white women use the morning-after pill more than twice as much as Latinas and Black women. The survey also found that the percentage of white women using contraception (69.2 percent) is higher than that of Black women (61.4 percent) and Latinas (60.5 percent).

Morales said the movie focuses on showing viewers how sex education on and off screen can be both awkward and inadequate. 

“I’ve learned that through the process of promoting this movie and talking about it that a lot of people are under the impression that the Plan B pill is an abortion pill, when it’s not,” she said. “And a lot of people don’t know that you can’t get pregnant immediately after having unprotected sex. That’s not how it biologically works.”

The movie has some awkward but funny moments, such as when Sunny turns her pink stuffed elephant away from her bed during an intimate moment in the company of her anatomy textbook. During a sex education class, an out-of-touch instructor shows an abstinence video that compares a woman’s active sex life with a used, broken-down car.

Morales said taking the story of teenage girls to the big screen and showing how their lives can be funny, sad and scary will help viewers appreciate the complexity of reality. At the same time, it can also help them understand that their stories can be much bigger than the things that marginalize them or make them different.

“It’s essential and it’s also not difficult to make TV and movies look like the world around us,” Morales said. “I hope that stories about us are a bigger swath than just the trauma.”

Morales, who identifies as Latinx, Latina, Cuban, Cuban American and queer, says the labels that define her can mean a lot of things — and nothing — because, like everyone else, she is also just human.

Anthony’s cousin with gang ties proves pivotal to a homicide case on CBS’s Blue Bloods season 12 episode eight. Directed by Jennifer Opresnick from a script by Kevin Riley, episode eight is set to air on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT.

Tom Selleck leads the cast as Frank Reagan, with Donnie Wahlberg back as Danny Reagan and Bridget Moynahan returning as Erin Reagan. Will Estes plays Jamie Reagan, Len Cariou is Henry Reagan, Sami Gayle is Nicky Reagan-Boyle, Marisa Ramirez is Det. Maria Baez, and Vanessa Ray plays Officer Eddie Janko.

Recurring season 12 cast members include Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, Robert Clohessy, Steven Schirripa, Andrew Terraciano, and Ian Quinlan.

“Reality Check” Plot: Danny partners with Anthony to solve a double homicide when Anthony’s shady cousin, Joey (Anthony DeSando), proves to have gang ties to the crime. Also, the boundary between Eddie and Jamie’s work and personal relationship is strained when Eddie and her new partner, Badillo (Ian Quinlan), ask Jamie to reassign them to different partners, and Erin questions the sacrifices she’s made for her career when she allows her law school friend to dig into her personal life to prepare for a potential run for district attorney.

Series Description, Courtesy of CBS:

Blue Bloods is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Commissioner, and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny, a seasoned detective, family man and Iraq War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez. Erin, the middle daughter, is a New York Assistant D.A. who serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father.

Jamie is the youngest Reagan, a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and follow in the family footsteps as a cop. He’s found a friend and ally in his wife, Eddie, who keeps him on his toes, and has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force.

Who is in the new Netflix Christmas movie?

Published

on

Single All the Way, Netflix’s upcoming Christmas romcom, brings some holiday fun with the best friends to lovers trope that many romance enthusiasts love.

The film follows Peter, a man who’s been unlucky in love for a long time. All he wants is to meet the man of his dreams and to get his family off his back about finding someone to settle down with.

Tired of being single and forced to mingle, Peter convinces his best friend, Nick, to come home with him for Christmas. In his supposedly fool-proof plan, the two will take a page out of many a romcom and fake date.

This way Peter’s family won’t ask him questions about his disaster of a love life, and he won’t be alone at this year’s family gathering. It’s a win-win for him considering he and Nick always have a good time together. But what Peter’s not prepared for is his family’s happiness over the two being together for the holidays.

They’d always assumed he and Nick would become a couple one day. The best friends have the kind of bond that would do well in a life long partnership, and Peter’s family has been quietly rooting for them.

It’s a lot to take in but, as Peter does, he begins to wonder if he and Nick really could be a good fit for each other not only as friends but as boyfriends. That is, of course, if Nick is even interested in him.

Here’s who’s in the cast of Single All the Way!
