7. FILM: Tanner Hall
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’s Rooney Mara stars in this dreamy coming-of-age drama about troubled girls in a posh New England boarding school. Amy Ferguson is a standout as Lucasta, a tomboy who’s struggling with her lack of attraction to the opposite sex. Directed by Tatiana von Furstenberg and Francesca Gregorini, the enchanting film, which opens September 9 in limited release, also stars Shawn Pyfrom and Amy Sedaris.
6. TV: America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars
For cycle 17 of ANTM, which premieres September 14 on the CW, host Tyra Banks has assembled a cast of fan favorites for the model competition’s first all-stars cycle, which welcomes back cycle 11 beauty Isis King (pictured), the show’s first and only trans contestant. Also returning is cycle 15’s ex-Hooters waitress Kayla Ferell, the show’s highest-placing lesbian, as well as homophobic Christian Shannon Stewart from cycle 1.
5. TV: 90210
Though Trevor Donovan (pictured) will no longer be a series regular — not that he had all that much screen time last season — he’ll still return to play Teddy, 90210’s resident gay dude, for a handful of episodes when the fourth season begins September 13 on the CW. Ex-TeenNick star Ryan Rottman will also appear as Shane, a gay 20-something who’s confident in his own identity and committed to fighting for marriage equality.
