Good Boys

Good Boys

Metacritic score: 59 As Good Boys’ marketing cheekily teased, 12-year-olds won’t actually be able to see this film about three 12-year-old boys, on account of its R rating (for, basically, raunch and language). It’s a movie geared more toward parents, or at least for those of us who haven’t quite forgotten what it was like…
Luce

Luce

Metacritic score: 73 A decade ago, Amy and Peter Edgar (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth) adopted a young boy from Eritrea named Luce (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.). Now he’s a star athlete and model student in his high school, on the verge of graduation and a bright future. But strange things suddenly start happening at the…

So You Have A UTI. Here’s What To Do Next

After you’ve recovered, make a plan to prevent future UTIs. Ryan suggests taking a probiotic to restore your vaginal microbiome, because while your antibiotics kill off UTI bacteria, they also kill off the good bacteria that helps prevent yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.

A Week In New York City On $18 Per Hour

2:45 p.m. — I'm running a little late because the trains were running local (love when that happens), and I meet my boyfriend's sister outside the restaurant. I apologize for being late, but luckily, she doesn't seem very bothered by it. I'm relieved because some of my morning anxiety carried over into the train ride,…
The Dead Don’t Die

The Dead Don’t Die

Metacritic score: 55 Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die is a gently scathing tragicomedy, set in small-town America. It’s quietly castigating, for the audience: A zombie apocalypse happens because fracking tips the Earth off its axis, and people are all too preoccupied with their own concerns to care. Starring Bill Murray, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Driver,…
High Life

High Life

Metacritic score: 76 High Life is a wild, visionary film from director Claire Denis about a group of convicts on death row who are sent into deep space for the sake of science. It’s not for the faint of heart — it’s about sex and reproduction and death and life — and it’s anything but…
Yes, It’s OK To Not Go To Prom

Yes, It’s OK To Not Go To Prom

I skipped prom for a few different reasons: I’d been to two homecoming dances before, and while I’d had an okay time, it didn’t feel the need to repeat it with a much-pricier ticket (another reason I skipped). My friends were all going with dates, and I was dateless; the few boys I would have…

I Make $150,000 — & I Work From Home

"Of course there is variability and nuance in that statement, but what I mean is that I previously spent so much time focusing on what was next that I forgot to enjoy the present. Personally, that meant that after we bought our first home, I was back on Trulia trying to find the next bigger…
