The film's portrayal of the acclaimed horror author is based on a work fiction but draws heavily from her troubled life.
You may not know much about author Shirley Jackson, but you're almost certainly familiar with some of her work
Her novel The Haunting of Hill House is one of the best and most influential ghost stories of all time and has seen numerous adaptations, including the 2018 hit Netflix series of the same name. Her short story "The Lottery" has been taught to generations of high school students as a quintessential parable on the dangers of conformity and tradition. But if you can believe Elisabeth Moss' (The Handmaid's Tale, The Invisible Man) portrayal of the author in the new trailer for Shirley, her writing was far from the most frightening aspect of her life.
The Riverdale star announced her plans to march in an LGBTQ+ for Black Lives Matter protest.
In the midst of the world bursting into flames, you might've missed the news that Cole Sprouse has split from his Riverdale co-star, Lili Reinhart, after three years of dating.
Rumors of the pair's breakup have surfaced time and time again, so we're not sure what's making this time any more significant. But, nevertheless, rest assured that the possible exes are keeping busy: Sprouse, for one, was arrested while protesting in support of Black Lives Matter in Santa Monica over the weekend. Reinhart took to her Instagram story to announce that she was planning on participating in an LGBTQ+ For Black Lives Matter protest in West Hollywood. She also very casually mentioned the fact that she's bisexual.

The global reach of the Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd's death uplift the fight for racial equality in all nations.
Protests over the unlawful death of George Floyd haven't disrupted just American cities, as demonstrations all over the world have taken place this week.
In London's Hyde Park, Star Wars actor John Boyega gave an impassioned speech to the protesters. "I need you to understand how painful this sh*t is. I need you to understand how painful it is to be reminded every day that your race means nothing and that isn't the case anymore, that was never the case anymore." He continued, "We are a physical representation of our support for George Floyd. We are a physical representation of our support for Sandra Bland. We are a physical representation of our support for Trayvon Martin. We are a physical representation of our support for Stephen Lawrence," he said, referencing the infamous 1993 murder of a Black UK teen. Lawrence was just 18-years-old when he was stabbed to death by a two white men who were known to spout racist, anti-Black, rhetoric.
