That’s one reason I feel intellectually inspired living in New York—I see problems everywhere. Behind the Story: Meeting Madonna was gratifying, fun, and special!

ZACH STAFFORD In This Issue: Writer, “The Killing of Stephen White,” page 68 Provenance: Hendersonville, Tenn.

Let’s Talk About Jack When an actor takes on a gay role, there’s inevitably speculation about his sexual orientation off-screen. Our March cover boy, Jack Falahee (who plays a gay character on How to Get Away With Murder), addressed the rumor mill: “I don’t think answering who I’m sleeping with accomplishes anything other than quenching the thirst of curiosity. And moreover, it seems reductive.” Of course, our reliable Facebook commentors took a stance. “I do hate how we have to ask actors who play gay if they are gay. We do not ask straight actors if they are straight,” wrote Alexander Rohoman. While there is an element of validity to Rohoman’s argument, we must question the social and political impacts of coming out. “There is an ethical component to being openly and…

this charming sadist

“I KIND OF MISS HIM,” says Joel Kinnaman, referring to Stephen Holder, the streetwise, hoodie-wearing detective (and reformed addict) he played in AMC’s absorbing crime serial, The Killing, based on the hit Danish show Forbrydelsen. “He could be both very mature and deeply immature, very angry and vulnerable.” Of course, the fact that Holder could embody such contradictions simultaneously was due, in no small part, to the depth that Kinnaman brought to the role. A rare example of an American adaptation holding its own against the European original, The Killing was compelling in large part because of the chemistry between Holder and his pensive colleague, Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos). Their dynamic—playful, prickly, and emotionally complex—was the most striking difference between the two shows. “The Danish version of the role I played…

the gay agenda

1. The Master of the House BEHIND THE SCENES AT ONE OF FASHION’S MOST REVERED MAISONS Raf Simons had a lot riding on his first couture show for Christian Dior, presented in the summer of 2012. But while the final outcome was a visual feast of shapely suiting and ethereal gowns, the new documentary Dior and I focuses instead on the demanding months that led up to its unveiling. Director Frédéric Tcheng dives below the design world’s dazzling facade to spotlight the team of artisans who labored tirelessly to create each of Simons’s pieces by hand, right down to the tiniest embroidered flower. There’s a surprising amount of quotidian drama at play, too—office politics, gossiping colleagues—that would be familiar to anyone who’s ever been on a payroll. Ultimately, the film serves as…

the backpack graduates

The debate over what bag a gentleman should carry has gotten very complicated. We have more to lug around (smartphones, laptops, tablets, spin shoes) and more options to lug it all around in (messengers, totes, briefcases, knapsacks). Your best bet? Going back to your roots. Like, elementary school back. Remember how practical your backpack was then? It could hold everything you needed and balance the weight nicely on your shoulders. Re-embracing it as an adult means upgrading to something sleek, simple, and sturdy. Strap on one of the luxe black and navy offerings in leather and suede from brands like Dior Homme and Diesel, and you’ll look like a man who knows how to get things done on the go. Plus you’ll have your hands free for all those high…
