“I wanted to do it and not make it seem about myself. And I wanted to align particularly with something LGBT-youth-oriented,” Page said of her coming out speech at Time to THRIVE. “For me, it was a great opportunity to be honest, to share certain elements of the pain that I went through. Hopefully, that can connect with someone else. The reality is, there are very few young people out as actors, so I was hoping to speak to a lot of the issues so it wouldn’t just seem like, ‘Hey, look, I’m gay.’”
Sundance have announced their film lineup for 2016 and Tallulah is included in the U.S. dramatic competition! Ellen Page will hopefully be there for the world premiere as well. The Sundance Film Festival will run from January 21-31, 2016.
Tallulah / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Sian Heder) — A rootless young woman takes a toddler from a wealthy, negligent mother and passes the baby off as her own in an effort to protect her. This decision connects and transforms the lives of three very different women. Cast: Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Evan Jonigkeit, Uzo Aduba. World Premiere
Ellen Page is featured in the winter issue of DuJour Magazine for 2015’s Defining Moments in Film
“Every time I read this script, I’m emotionally moved,” Page says of Freeheld, which is based on a real-life lesbian couple facing heartbreaking discrimination. “When I met Stacie Andree and she took me around the town and into the house that was her and Laurel Hester’s home, or to the convenience store where Laurel liked to get her coffee, I felt—even though Stacie had had this wonderful life—the emotional weight of her loss. That’s what hit me the most.”

A brand new video for Vice‘s new channel, Viceland has been released! The advertisement includes some good amount of footage from Ellen’s documentary Gaycation. Check it out below!
Most of the big media news these days is about the unbundling of cable television into pieces you can pay to access with just an internet connection. But Vice Media, which started as a government-subsidized paper-and-ink magazine and has since become a surging player in the digital media space, is making a move into traditional linear television. The New York Times is reporting that it plans to launch its channel, Viceland, in February of 2016, part of a partnership with its investor, A&E.
Vice has already been dabbling in traditional television, producing a longform news program in partnership with HBO. The slate of shows for the new channel, whose development has been overseen by Spike Jonze, includes new titles like Gaycation with Ellen Page and Portraits with Marc Maron, as well as titles it already hosts on YouTube like Weediquette and Fuck That’s Delicious.
