Earlier this month, Stephani and Michael celebrated their one-year anniversary. Their wedding at Lareau Farm Inn in Waitsfield was incredible. Looking back at these photos, I remember what a beautiful fall wedding they had, complete with pumpkins, fall floral designs and an outstanding bridal party champagne spray. Their guests ate American Flatbread pizza and drank beer around the fire pit. Stephani and Michael chose my photography and video combo package, which meant we captured every special moment of their day. Afterwards, I produced and edited two films for them, using footage captured by Shawn Cimonetti. All the photos below were shot by Cat, but Andrea DiMedio did a fantastic job as the second photographer. Check out their wedding photos and films below!

“The Bourne Identity”
Ready to feel old? It has now been 21 years since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) first woke up with two bullets in his back and no memory of who he is or why the CIA is chasing him in “The Bourne Identity.” If you’ve already gone to theaters to see “Air” (which we recommend doing ASAP), it’s worth revisiting this kinetic thriller on Netflix, especially knowing that director Doug Liman is back at work with Damon right here in Boston on their upcoming film “The Instigators.”

“Ponyboys. Dallas. Johnny. Cherry. Sodapops.” The trailer for Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Outsiders,” which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, is little more than a slideshow of all the famous actors who made their first big splash in his 1983 coming-of-age drama. But my goodness, what a cast! Rob Lowe in his first feature film. A young Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Emilio Estevez, and Matt Dillon. Even seeing the teen stars whose careers peaked in the early ’80s, like C. Thomas Howell and Leif Garrett is something special. Coppola is a million miles away from “The Godfather” here, chronicling the down-and-out teens of 1960s Oklahoma made famous in SE Hinton’s novel. There are greasers, drive-in movies, and a murder that changes everything. But most of all, there’s the cast that launched “The Brat Pack” and unveiled the onscreen heartthrobs of the decade.

Speaking of timely anniversaries of movies about rebellious teens, Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” was released nationwide 10 years ago this past month, traumatizing thousands of Disney Channel fans who didn’t heed Selena Gomez’s warning that the film was not for “Wizards of Waverly Place”viewers. Perhaps best remembered for putting former Disney stars Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens into the most scandalous starring vehicle possible, “Spring Breakers” is a hypnotic nightmare of hedonistic excess, chronicling four girls who will do anything to get to spring break in Florida, and to keep the good times going forever and ever. Though it received mixed reviews upon release, the film has developed a cult following, and critics have come around on Korine’s uncompromising vision. A BBC poll of 177 film critics named “Spring Breakers” one of the best films of the 21st century, hopefully ensuring the film will be seen for years to come. As rapper/drug dealer/dirtbag Alien (James Franco) repeatedly says throughout the movie: “Spring break forever.”

Confession: I am totally in the tank when it comes to Steven Yeun, who is almost always the best thing about any project he’s in. Nevertheless, I was a little concerned that the conceit of “Beef,” about two people (Yeun and comedian Ali Wong) whose brief road-rage incident turned each into the other’s worst enemy — wasn’t strong enough to sustain a 10-episode series. Thankfully, creator Lee Sung Jin builds a thrilling narrative that is funny, alarming, and familiar, even when its protagonists veer into extreme territory to enact their revenge.

“Tiny Beautiful Things”
Based on the best-selling essay collection by Cheryl Strayed (“Wild”)” “Tiny Beautiful Things” follows Clare (Kathryn Hahn), a recovering addict who becomes an advice columnist even as her own life is falling apart. (In real life, Strayed anonymously wrote the Dear Sugar advice column, using his own tough life experiences to address readers’ letters with brutal honesty.) In the show, Clare’s marriage is on its last leg, and her daughter is pushing her away. Through the column, we see Clare delve into the memories of her youth (presented as flashbacks in the show) and her own tough relationship with her mother (Merritt Weaver). Hahn is jagged and imperfect in all the right ways, and watching her work through complex issues is a salve for the soul.

After a decades-long career playing iconic characters, Jennifer Coolidge is finally getting her overdue and well-served time in the spotlight. Her role as Tanya McQuoid in The White Lotus earned her an Emmy and, most recently, a Golden Globe Award. She has spent years being a supporting character for comic relief, but Tanya has given her the opportunity to show her range. A whole new audience is being introduced to Coolidge’s unique brand of comedy, and her long-time fans get to see her in a new light. Despite Tanya’s fate, we can expect to see much more from Coolidge in the near future. Her latest movie, Shotgun Weddingpremieres on Amazon Prime on January 27. We have MikeWhite, Ariana Grande, and Twitter to thank for her resurgence, but let’s not forget some of the performances that confirm the brilliance of Jennifer Coolidge. You know her, you love her, she is the moment!
COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Sherri Ann in Best in Show (2000)
Christopher Guests’ satirical mockumentary about a cutthroat competitive dog show is one of the most overlooked movies in the comedy genre. Like in a lot of Guests’ projects, a bulk of the film was improvised by the cast. Coolidge portrays Sherri Ann, a trophy wife to a nearly senile man who hopes her poodle can win the trophy with the help of famed trainer Christy Cummings (Jane Lynch). The scenes with Coolidge are guaranteed belly laughs. She boasts about her amazing relationship with her aging husband, stating, “We both have so much in common. We both love soup.” Throughout the intensity of the Mayflower Dog Show, Sheri and Christy grow closer. Even though (spoiler alert) they didn’t win, they won each other. In the end, the two embark on a new journey together, starting ‘American Bitch,’ a magazine that is “focused on the issues of the lesbian pure-bred dog owner.” Best in Show went viral this past Halloween after Ariana Grande and Liz Gillies uncannily recreated multiple scenes from the film.
Fiona in A Cinderella Story (2004)
An example of perfect casting is Jennifer Coolidge as the evil stepmother Fiona Montgomery in the early 2000s spin on the fairytale, A Cinderella Story. Her bleach-blonde hair and plastic-looking features perfectly encapsulated the essence of the character. Fiona would strut around the house tormenting Sam (Hilary Duff) and demanding things like Norwegian salmon. One of her best scenes is Fiona greeting Sam fresh out of her pink backyard tanning bed. She tells Sam, “you’re not very pretty, and you’re not very bright,” all while still wearing goggles. Despite her character being the movie’s antagonist, Coolidge is by far the funniest part of the film, especially when she can’t move her face after botched botox.
Sophie in 2 Broke Girls
Coolidge’s most consistent role was Sophie on the CBS sitcom 2 Broken Girls. She was introduced in the first season, and her character was such a hit that she became a regular for the five remaining years of the show. It must be the Coolidge effect that every role she plays seems tailor-made for her, even this of an eccentric Polish woman. Sophie had a satisfying arch on the show that took her from kooky upstairs neighbor to wife, mother, and an instrumental figure in Max’s (Kat Dennings) and Caroline’s (Beth Behrs) lives.
Stifler’s Mom in American Pie (1999)
The film that was considered Jennifer Coolidge’s big break was American Pie. Before she got the part of Stifler’s mom, Coolidge had only done bit parts and small guest spots until the naughty teen comedy launched her into the mainstream. Stifler’s mom was the object of affection for all the horny college boys but was wooed by the dorkiest of them all, Finch. Her sensual sultriness was always paired with a skinny cigarette and smooth jazz. Due to the film’s incredible success, Coolidge was able to reprise her role in three sequels; American Pie 2, American Wedding and American Reunion. While the origins have never been perfectly traced back, it is rumored that Coolidge’s portrayal of Stifler’s mom popularized the term MILF.
Whitney Taylor Brown in For Your Consideration (2006)
For Your Consideration is a lot like if Best in Show was about Hollywood awards season rather than a dog competition. This other Christopher Guest mockumentary-style project circles around actors and crew working on a film that’s generating Oscar buzz. Coolidge plays Whitney Taylor Brown, the heiress to a diaper company and amateur film producer. When asked what a producer does, she replies, “lots of getting out the wallet and paying for sometimes ridiculous things…like snacks.” She had icy blonde hair, porcelain skin, a bold red lip, always wore an eye-catching hat or hairpiece, and drank red wine from a straw. There’s not much behind Whitney’s eyes, a role that Coolidge never failed to nail.
Paulette in Legally Blonde (2001)
The charm and everlasting appeal of Legally Blonde would not exist without Paulette Bonafonté. She was the perfect character to bounce off Reese Witherspoon‘s Elle Woods, and it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Coolidge playing her. Paulette was the mad genius behind the unforgettable bend-and-snap that is forever intertwined with the film’s legacy. She was not only Elle’s manicurist and fierce confidant, but she also had empowering character development in her own right. Elle’s tenacity encouraged Paulette to stand up to her deadbeat ex and take back her dog. Coolidge’s performance was as heartwarming as it was entertaining, and she brought the same energy back to the sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde.
Karen in The Watcher
Part of Coolidge’s recent popularity is due to her role in the 2022 Netflix original series, The Watchers. She portrayed real estate agent Karen Calhoun who knowingly sells a house with a sinister history to a new family. It’s another role that seems like it was written for Coolidge since she effortlessly embodies the waspy, pearl-clutching woman of suburbia who does a little scheming on the side. Karen has many memorable moments in the show, including asking for an “extra holiday pour” of wine at the country club and her iconic deliveries of various profanities.
Bobbie in Party Down
Having a short, two-episode-arch on a Starz sitcom is usually not a memorable gig unless you are Jennifer Coolidge. She joined the Adam Scott-led cast of Party Down as temporary caterer Bobbie St. Brown. Like many of the staff, Bobbie is a wannabe actor who takes any job they can get in LA. She joins Party Down Catering in place of her roommate Constance who she hits with her car, but “a small car,” she insists. In the Season 1 finale, the crew is working at a high-profile celebrity wedding, so they need to be on their best behavior, but Bobbie is tripping on mushrooms. It’s no surprise we didn’t see her character return after she put the olive appetizer in the shape of a swastika and weighed the guests on how to tell if her lover is gay. In a perfect universe, Bobbie would make a comeback in the upcoming Party Down revival.
Amber in A Mighty Wind (2003)
We owe Christopher Guest a lot for continuing to use Jennifer Coolidge in his ensembles as he did in A Mighty Wind. This satire revolves around the makings of a reunion concert of three folk bands from the 60s. Coolidge plays Amber Cole, part of the Zipken Group that is helping put on the show despite hating folk music. She abandons her usual blonde locks and dons a brunette perm, a foreign accent, and a permanent wide-toothed grin. She’s not in as many scenes as her previous collaborations with Guest, but she always grabs your attention and has some of the most quotable lines.
Ask in The White Lotus
If Jennifer Coolidge didn’t make her name with any of the previously listed roles, she most certainly did with Tanya McQuoid in The White Lotus. She’s the only character that appears in Seasons 1 and 2 and is the thread that ties the stories together. Tanya is an incredibly lonely and insecure woman who just happens to be extremely wealthy by birthright. Amongst all the privileged and ignorant guests, Tanya attracts the most sympathy because of her perpetual fretfulness. You can’t help but feel bad for her; she’s just lost her mother, she’s desperate for love but has to be surrounded by a bunch of happy-go-lucky hotel guests. She exits Season 1 having found love with Greg (Jon Griers), but as many viewers know, she never gets her happily ever after. Coolidge’s chaotic queen status just rose with her performance in Season 2. She delivered comedy gold every time she was on screen and flexed her dramatic acting chops in the final episode. Tanya’s fate may seem unjust, but it’s hard to imagine a more in-character moment than that yacht scene. Even though she now swims with the fishes, we should all manifest a Tanya origin story for Season 3.
The amount of Star Wars movies and TV shows to contend with can be a little overwhelming. The franchise spans from 1977 to the present day, and each new product seems to jump back and forth across the galaxy’s timeline. To lend a hand, here are all the official Star Wars movies and TV shows in order, in chronological timeline order as opposed to in release order. Minimal spoilers only!
Similarly to the way we use BCE and CE to structure our history’s timeline (‘Before Current Era’ and ‘Current Era’), the Star Wars timeline is often centered around the Battle of Yavin, the key battle in 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. This provides the year notations BBY and ABY (‘Before the Battle of Yavin’ and ‘After the Battle of Yavin’), helping place each film and TV show in the Star Wars timeline.
The Star Wars movies and TV shows in timeline order
Tales of the Jedi (2022) | TV series — 50-18 BBY
This TV miniseries explores a number of Jedi stories long before the crux of the franchise.

Fan favorite Ewan McGregor reprized his role as the younger Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Disney+ miniseries. Embbodying the character made famous by Sir Alec Guinness in the original trilogy, we follow a disillusioned Kenobi keeping his Jedi identity a secret whilst he keeps a watchful eye on the young Luke Skywalker. He then receives an urgent cry for help from the father of a young Princess Leia, one he cannot refuse — even if it means facing old enemies.
Andor (2022-present) | TV series — 5 BBY
Cassian Andor is a downcast Ferrix resident before he becomes a fugitive of the law, and then the oppressive Empire itself. He then becomes entangled in the spark of Rebellion igniting across the galaxy, whilst Senator Mon Mothma struggles with entanglements of his own.

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) | Movie — 0 BBY / 0 ABY
Episode IV is, strangely, where it all began back in 1977. The young and naïve Luke Skywalker becomes embroiled in the arduous fight against the Empire, meeting Jedi Master Ben Kenobi, feisty Princess Leia, and mercenary duo Han Solo and Chewbacca.

The Mandalorian (2019-present) | TV series — 9 ABY
The warriors of the planet Mandalore are masked up, heavily armored, and strictly religious.

Mando spends the rest of the space-Western series running to protect his ‘bounty’ from former Empire leaders and other bounty hunters.
The Book of Boba Fett (2021-2022) | TV series — 9 ABY
Bounty hunter Boba Fett — a genetic replica of his ‘father’ Jango, from whom all the Republic’s clones derived — wants the throne of the crime lord Jabba the Hutt. Decked out in his iconic Mandalorian armor, he teams up with Master Assassin Fennec Shand, giving us more of the fearsome bounty hunter that fans came to love in the original trilogy.
Stars Wars Resistance (2018-2022) | TV series — 34 ABY
Set just before and in the midst of the Episode VII-IX trilogy of movies, Resistance adds to the animated repertoire of the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015) | Movie — 34 ABY
Over three decades after the Battle of Yavin in A New Hope, the third film trilogy of the franchise begins. The protagonist is Rey, a young orphan girl who scavenges on the desert planet of Jakku for food and money.

Star Wars Forces of Destiny (2017-2018) | TV series — 22 BBY-35 ABY
similarly to Tales of the Jedi, Forces of Destiny is another animated TV series that spans across many years of the Star Wars universe, this time both before and after the Battle of Yavin. The franchise’s female characters are given a well-needed spotlight in this show, with stories starring Rey, Leia, Maz Kanata, Hera Syndulla, Padmé Amidala, and Rose Tico to name a few.
And that’s it so far! This list only includes the canonical Star Wars content, but you can also catch the droids, Ewoksand original Clone Wars miniseries as part of the non-canon Star Wars Legends continuity.
