Anna, how would you genuinely respond to a new acquaintance who asks in conversation, "So where do all the young, hawt, hip, femme, single lesbians hang out?" Mind you, the question is asked in person (not online or via text where the anonymity warrants a blow-off or obnoxious response)? "Hooters," I want to respond (which may be true). The question irritates me. I find it rude, shallow, obnoxious and superficial, and I would find it so if it came from a man and he was asking me regarding heterosexual women.

There's no other way to put it: My first experience at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah was simply fantastic.

Below find random quotes gathered from the stars at the fest, either from direct...

In Wright's take on Leo Tolstoy's 19th century novel “Anna Karenina,” Knightley struggles to convey believably the title character's tragic decisions and grandly emotional behavior. As she trades one Alexei for another, her throw-caution-to-the-wind lust for...

Dear Anna, I'm a single straight lady in my late 20s. I have a lady friend who also identifies as straight whom I hang out with once a week or so.

There's a reason "Spies of Warsaw" isn't airing as part of PBS' "Masterpiece Theatre. " I expected the two-parter ( 8 p.m. April 3 and 10, BBC America; 2 stars out of 4 ) to be a tense thriller, what with the 10th Doctor Who, David Tennant, playing Col. Jean-Francois Mercier, a French aristocrat who's actually a covert operative spying on both the Nazis and the Russians in pre-World War II Poland. Spies are hot right now. But in this four-hour miniseries adapted by Dick Clement and Ian la Frenais from the Alan Furst novel,...
