‘The Tale’: Jennifer Fox on Putting Herself in This True Story, Choosing HBO Over Theaters, and What’s Next
[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains mild spoilers for “The Tale.”]

Jennifer Fox wants you to see “The Tale.” While most writer-directors are invested in finding an audience for their picture, Fox’s motivations are deeper. The new HBO film isn’t just her first feature as a writer and first scripted film as a director; it’s her own story, crafted (and re-crafted) while she was living it, and meant to help the world understand the complex nature of childhood sexual abuse — abuse she experienced first-hand.

“My goal was to understand how and why it happened and to help other people and the world understand how complex and nuanced these events are,” Fox said in an interview with IndieWire. “That’s the purpose of this film.”

The Tale” focuses on Jennifer (Laura Dern), a documentary filmmaker who’s forced to reassess an adolescent relationship with two coaches, a horse riding instructor named Mrs. G (Elizabeth Debicki) and her friend and track coach,

How Will Grey's Anatomy Handle That Big Cliffhanger? We Have an Idea
All things considered, the 14th season finale of Grey's Anatomy is one of the happiest endings we've seen in the show's history.

Yes, most of the finale is tied up neatly in a bow, but there is one semicliffhanger that's been rolling around in our heads: what's going on with Jo and Alex?

As a quick catch-up, Jo receives some pretty exceptional news in the finale: she's been accepted into a very exclusive medical program. Oh, and she'll have to move to Boston to do it. Meredith spends the episode hemming and hawing; she even offers
