Monsterland/Roberta Colindrez Oct 2

Plainfield, Illinois

Starring Taylor Schilling as Kate Feldman and Roberta Colindrez as Shawn Greene, “Plainfield, Illinois” has a wonderful sense of tonal rhythm and the best love story in Monsterland season 1 on Hulu. Directed by Logan Kibens (Snowfall) and the aforementioned Pesce, the narrative centers on a female couple who clash after 15 years together. Whereas Shawn keeps a corporate job and appears to be emotionally-balanced, Kate struggles with suicidal thoughts and eventually makes a fateful decision that essentially fractures the mind of her partner. “Plainfield, Illinois” examines the horrors of domestic routines, and keeps the audience off-guard by introducing a gore element while staying true to the existing relationship drama. “Plainfield, Illinois” is a mash-up of sub-genres that takes the narrative to a supremely dark place, only to settle on a message of hope. Streamers will recognize Schillling from various roles – and she delivers a spectacular performance, but it’s Colindrez who steals the show in Monsterland season 1’s best episode as the deeply complex character Shawn.

19th amendment

On November 5, 1919, Maine voted to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment. By August of 1920, 36 states (including Maine) ratified the amendment, ensuring that the right to vote could not be denied across the country based on sex.
