Picks of the Week: Two Documentaries Tackling Tough Subjects with Grace and Dignity are Coming to HBO

Picks of the Week is Women and Hollywood’s newest resource. We are often asked for recommendations, so each week we’ll spotlight the women-driven and women-made projects—movies, series, VOD releases and more—that we’re most excited about. Sign up for the Women and Hollywood newsletter at womenandhollywood.com to get each week’s pick delivered to your inbox.


Pick of the Week: United Skates

Directed by Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown; Written by Dyana Winkler

A fascinating look into a African-American subculture that’s been largely overlooked by the mainstream, United Skates digs into the history—and uncertain future—of roller skating rinks in the U.S.

Tina Brown and Dyana Winkler’s documentary explores the huge impact rinks have had on hip-hop culture, and what the meeting place means to millions of Black Americans, both historically and presently. The Tribeca Audience Award-winner is a beautiful celebration of the magic that takes place on rinks across the nation, but it also offers an important case study in segregation of the past and present, exploring how many rinks create rules designed to deter people of color from participating and the coded language used to communicate what events they are welcome to attend.

“At a time when our country feels very divided, we want people to see that this is a community celebrating what unites them,” Brown and Winkler told us in an interview. It’s an absolute thrill to watch families, friends, couples, and strangers having the time of their lives on the rink—and performing amazing acts of athleticism and artistry in doing so. With rinks shuttering at an alarming rate, United Skates is a powerful testament to what will be lost when their doors close. (Laura Berger)

United Skates is streaming now on HBO GO and HBO NOW.


Pick of the Week: It’s a Hard Truth Ain’t It

Co-Directed by Madeleine Sackler (Click here to read Women and Hollywood’s interview with Sackler.)

There’s a lot going on in It’s a Hard Truth Ain’t It. The product of a filmmaking workshop held at Indiana’s Pendleton Correctional Facility, the doc was made in collaboration by director Madeleine Sackler and inmates Dennis Brown, Marshaun Buggs, Al’Jonon Coleman, James Collins, Franklin Cox, Brandon Crider, Clifford Elswick, Quentis Hardiman, Joseph Henderson, Charles Lawrence, Herb Robertson, Rushawn Tanksley and Mark Thacker. In its relatively short running time (one hour and 15 minutes), the film explores who gets to tell certain stories, and how they should be told.

As prisoners who ended up in a maximum-security facility due to violence, the doc’s filmmakers/subjects are among the most marginalized people in the U.S. Using the filmmaking tenets Sackler teaches, the directors/film subjects interview one another about their pasts, their crimes, their identities and their dreams. Wisely, Sackler mostly acts as an observer and gives these men the space and opportunity to share their stories on their terms.

Politically and socially, we don’t tend to care about convicts or their perspectives: they did wrong, and deserve to be punished and ignored. But It’s a Hard Truth Ain’t It sees Brown, Buggs, Coleman, Collins, Cox, Crider, Elswick, Hardiman, Henderson, Lawrence, Robertson, Tanksley and Thacker as people, neither good nor bad, and allows them to speak for themselves.

It’s revolutionary—and incredibly vital. (Rachel Montpelier)

It’s a Hard Truth Ain’t It will air on HBO February 25 at 10 p.m. ET. It will subsequently be available on HBO GO and HBO NOW.

This Is Us’ Laura Niemi on Her Return as Jack’s Mom: ‘I Knew Her Journey Was Going to Be Tough’

Laura Niemi is opening up about her big return to This Is Us.

Niemi, who plays Jack Pearson’s (Milo Ventimiglia) mother, Marilyn, says her character’s journey as a working class woman who finds herself in an abusive relationship was difficult to play on an emotional level — but was familiar on a personal level.

“I tapped into some personal experience,” Niemi exclusively tells PEOPLE of how she prepared for the role. “I was in a relationship that was pretty toxic and just wanting to be able to get out and not having a voice. I was just in a dark place — I think a place a lot of woman have been in. I could relate to wearing those shoes when it came to Marilyn’s marriage to Stanley. Also the subject of alcoholism was relatable. I’ve seen what it does and the hostages are taken under that disease. I knew her journey was going to be a tough one.”

As far as Tuesday’s episode goes, Niemi says her “journey of now having two boys” will come into play, and viewers will soon see how the Pearson family dynamic impacts Jack’s life.

“This is a big episode for Jack,” she says. “There’s a lot of reveal on our family history. I think it’s going to be a pretty wonderful episode to be able to see how he became who he is. I think it starts with our parents.”

Can’t wait for everyone to see my boys @michaelangarano & @miloanthonyventimiglia shine in this one. Powerful stuff not to be missed.

In the season 3 premiere last month, viewers were transported back to the ’70s and found out more about Jack and Rebecca’s first date.

“I always said I was born in the wrong era,” Niemi says about her character’s time travel. “My best friend growing up was my grandmother. This is her generation. I spent New Year’s Eve with my grandparents. I just feel like I’ve always had an older soul and that period of time was such an incredible time. It was wonderful to dive into that period of history.”

And working alongside Ventimiglia has been far from dull.

“I’m on a show that everyone watches ,so people are constantly texting me, ‘What was it like?’ It was fun being able to feel the enthusiasm in my personal life as well,” she says. “Milo is my boy. He’s such a lovely and wonderful man. He makes my job so easy. He’s such a lovable guy and sets the bar so high with this character.”

As for what’s to come this season, the cast previously told PEOPLE that things will begin to fall together come midseason — with the obvious curveballs.

“Episode four is a doozy. We’re going to see a side of Kate we haven’t seen so far. Kate hasn’t felt her feelings deeply and a lot of them are bubbling to the surface. As humans, we don’t always know how to handle them or express them. Sometimes anger is sometimes just sadness masked,” said Chrissy Metz, alluding to Kate’s miscarriage last season as well as Toby’s battle with depression.

This Is Us airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on NBC.
