Sundance Film Festival 2016 Spotlight: Indie Darling Jen Tullock


The film festival circuit is where we so often chanced upon the gems of the indie genre and Jen Tullock is one such beguiling talent. She stars in “Partners”, an official short film selection at Sundance and delves into the lives of a lesbian couple stuck in a rut when it comes to their sex lives. Will they be able to overcome their desires to salvage their relationship? Jen has already been praised as a spirited performer with an impeccable timing and she is on her way to wow audiences at Sundance. Together with her co-star Hannah Pearl Utt, Jen’s also pulling double duty as the writer of “Partners” so we can’t wait to be entertained by her distinctive touch that has lively humour in mind.

Keeping up with the amazing group of women on both film as well as TV is pure bliss what with them being eye-catching day on day. This week is certainly becoming one where women are the force of enchantment and it’s great to see Jen playing her part in making us swoon. She is a whiz at embodying her multiple alter egos onscreen most often in the name of making us laugh so she has most of us in the palm of her lovely hands. Even in the darkest of times, women comediennes such as the vivacious Jen should be applauded for lifting the gloom that we may have in our lives. Her mesmerising blue eyes does potently augment her charisma and she could yet be joining the list of breakout indie actresses in this most riveting year.

SIFF Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Screen Siren Catherine Carlen

 alt=  alt=

Catherine Carlen has showcased her brand of allure for years and her luminosity is a thing of beauty to behold. In “The Automatic Hate”, catch Catherine as Sarah, the free-spirited mother of ditzy Alexis Green (Adelaide Clemens) who make up a dysfunctional family of sorts in this tale of societal shift and taboos. It sure is a female-drive cast with Deborah Ann Woll recently of “Daredevil” fame joining these two ladies in being a most radiant trio. Kudos to Catherine for having her scene stealing moment of the film, baring it all as she tends to her gardening chores. Helen Mirren is not the only one with an innate sex appeal which we should by now acknowledge is age-free and Catherine sure has all the goods. You already know blue-eyed blondes have a special place on this very blog. Playing an exhibitionist is never easy by any means and I applaud her creative endeavor in doing so. With a career spanning more than 35 years, Catherine is proficient in the art-form of beguilement onscreen.

Besides dazzling up the indie genre, she’s also had a wonderful run on television having appeared on hit shows such as “How to Get Away with Murder”, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Mindy Project” which also stars the amazing Beth Grant. In fact Catherine is starring alongside Beth in 2 other features, the indie fav “The Bridge Partner” as well as “Becca and Molly” which is screening at Cannes. Juggling her acting as well as being an accomplished acting coach to Hollywood stars is indicative of her passion for the film industry. This second coming of the über-talented Catherine is adore-worthy and she’s steadily rediscovering the magic touch she’s always had as a veritable storyteller.
