Weekend Whats

What to Erase: Last night I attended a star-studded fundraiser for a great organization called Bring Change to Mind, dedicated to ending the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. The organization was founded by Glenn Close (who spent a season of Damages opposite a character named after me), and my friends Nellie Dragonic and Zach Williams (who presented Billy Crystal with an award named for his dad, Robin) are on the board. One of the evening’s highlights was getting to hear Idina Menzel cover Creep. Here she is performing it at another event.

+ What to Read: How seeing problems in the brain makes stigma disappear. “Dramatic advances in brain imaging, genetics and other technologies are helping us objectively identify mental illness.”

+ What to Watch: Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman in Noah Bombach’s latest film (made for Netflix): The Meyerowitz Stories.
