What To Watch This Weekend! Unforgettable, Girlboss and One Immortal Life on HBO!!By The DivaGals | April 21, 2017 | Entertainment
Unforgettable. Ah, the plight of a baby mama scorned. Julia, played by Rosario Dawson, has moved to a new town to be with her new fiancé. And his ex-wife/baby mama Tessa (Katherine Heigl) isn’t having any of it. This is pretty formulaic stuff, but there are a few surprise twists that made us jump in our seats. Rosario cries and whimpers well, and Katherine is utterly creepy (the role she was born to play?). We say grab your gals and have a glass of Pinot before you go for this upgraded version of your fave Lifetime-esque flick. Opens today.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Oprah Winfrey stars in this adaptation of Rebecca Skloot’s critically acclaimed, bestselling nonfiction book of the same name. Told through the eyes of Henrietta’s daughter, Deborah Lacks, the film chronicles her search, along with journalist Skloot, to learn about the mother she never knew and understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Henrietta’s’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever. Airing Saturday, April 22 at 8 p.m. on HBO.
Girlboss. Love Nasty Gal? Ever wonder how it came to be? Netflix’s newest series is inspired by the story of Sophia Amoruso who founded the lifestyle e-commerce site, starting with her days of selling vintage clothes on eBay, and by age 27, building her multi-million dollar fashion empire. #LifeGoals. Girlboss premieres April 21 on Netflix.
