My technique: follow interesting people since they tend to know, or work with, interesting people. Here's Melissa Barrera, who I only know because she acted in Scream with Jenna Ortega, singing on stage and being rather good at it.

(The event is related to a Frida musical and a friend's album release and Hispanic Heritage Month, see her caption)

I'd ask why this guy is slapping a plastic pigeon but that wouldn't be fair to the vision impaired people. I didn't include that in the image description and there is no way I know how to describe that.

Reminds me that I'm still on the lookout for the film Carmen that came out this year in North American countries. Melissa Barrera is the lead in that film and does a lot of singing in it I believe.


I'm giving the miniseries Keep Breathing on Netflix a chance, since it has Melissa Barrera in it as lead and I quite liked her yesterday on the cinema screen in Bed Rest.

I really liked Keep Breathing. Melissa Barrera is really good as basically the only character this series follows. She is Liv, a woman who survives a plane crash in the middle of nowhere, then has to keep surviving.

I like that each episode is a bit different. I also like that Liv is not portrayed as some sort of survival expert or that the risks and problems are played down. Liv is just a resourceful, determined woman but like any city person she doesn't know what she's doing out there.

What makes the series different from just that idea of survival, is that they keep tying it back to life before the accident and to her youth.

Just back from watching Bed Rest in the cinema. Maybe I shouldn't have seen this at midnight, it's seriously scary. Melissa Barrera is really good as the lead, a pregnant woman who has to stay in bed and finds it a mental challenge. Melissa also produces the film.

A comparison with Rosemary's Baby is unavoidable with such a synopsis, but I like the psychology of the woman better in this one. She's highly capable, strong, independent, and reasons for her state of mind go further than being pregnant. It's just the character of the man I didn't like.

That first scene, where she quickly sorted out the renovation her husband was stressing about, immediately set the tone. His non-acknowledgment of that, too.

Next week, it's Melissa again, but together with Jenna Ortega, as Sam and Tara respectively in Scream VI.
