#BLACKWOMANMAGIC - STORM, REESE, OPRAH, MINDY, & AVA In A WRINKLE In TIME & On TIME MAG!!!



HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!!!

Actresses STORM REID, REESE WITHERSPOON, OPRAH WINFREY, and MINDY KALING star in the forthcoming AVA DUVERNAY-directed DISNEY film, A WRINKLE IN TIME, and; they cover the 2018. The YEAR AHEAD Issue of TIME Magazine.


Here are some interview interludes:

STORM REID on understanding her character:

“... it's about knowing that you’re going to go through dark spaces in your life. You’re not going to be perfect, but the most important thing is not trying to please anybody. It’s loving yourself inside out.”

“Before I got this role, I wanted there to be more little girls that look like me on TV and in lead roles.” 

OPRAH WINFREY on the potential impact of  this film on young girls:

"When you don’t see yourself, there is a subconscious psychological manifestation. It’s diminishing.” But to see yourself as the savior of a world threatened by unquantifiable evil? “That will have impact far beyond anything any marketer, any researcher, any of us even know.”

MINDY KALING on working with Ana Duvernay:

“The essential quality of Ava is not, to my mind, tied to her woman-ness. It’s tied to her Ava-ness.”

REESE WITHERSPOON on Ava demanding inclusiveness for the film:

“I’ve never seen somebody demand inclusiveness like that.I t’s just a different perspective, and you don’t get that unless we start to have powerful filmmakers of different colors, different genders. You’re just gonna have the same 20 dudes making the same 20 movies over and over and over again."

AVA DUVERNAY on casting the four leads:

“I felt like we were making the new Wizard of Oz for another generation.”

“I wasn’t just casting for actresses. I was casting for leaders—icons. Reese is the hottest producer in town. Oprah’s the most prolific, venerable legend of television and an artist and entrepreneur. And Mindy’s one of the few women running a show with her name, about her.bWhen I think about the three of them together as a unit of celestial beings, it feels right.”
