This time coming from Washington Square News, a short but great review of Danielle’s latest flick:
From director Austin Chick (“XX/XY”) comes “Girls Against Boys,” a film starring Danielle Panabaker as Shae, a girl whose life is changed forever upon meeting Lu (Nicole LaLiberte). Looking for some fun, Lu takes Shae around to some warehouse parties, where they go home with a few guys. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the guys, Simon (Michael Stahl-David), forces himself on Shae under the pretense of taking her home safely. When the police prove unhelpful, Shae and Lu take justice into their own hands, and their friendship becomes something dangerous and disturbing.
Although the film may sound like nothing more than a simple story of revenge, “Girls” is much more than that. The film makes a conscious effort to deal with the objectification of women, a theme subtly featured in every man’s interaction with Shae and Lu.
The two lead actresses are the film’s greatest strength. Panabaker is particularly impressive as a naive college girl, while LaLiberte is incredibly convincing as a dangerous and obsessive woman. Rather than overplaying the role of a murderer, LaLiberte makes Lu appear devoid of human feeling. Lu’s blank stares combined with her ability to kill a person without a thought make her actions all the more haunting.
“Girls” also experiments with many different angles and shots. The dance scenes in the clubs are among the most interesting in the film. The action and noise are turned down and all the audience can hear is Shae’s breathing, which, when combined with the intense focus on her face, makes it seem as though the audience is witnessing a transformation.
The scene of Shae’s attack is also artfully constructed. Rather than focusing on the violence of the crime, the camera remains focused on the keys dangling from her door while she and Simon are out of focus on the side of the screen. The audience can still hear her struggles, and the sound of pain proves more effective than actually showing the act.
“Girls Against Boys” is an interesting take on the idea of women seeking revenge, and it even questions the very idea of justice. The film asks the question of who is truly to blame for the murders — is it Shae, or is it the objectification in our society? Viewers interested in dark humor, the errors of society and seeing women take things into their own hands will enjoy what Chick’s newest film has to offer.

Yes! You read it right, not only will we get to see Danielle Panabaker weekly on TV thanks to her “Necessary Roughness” appearances (How great was her comeback?! Btw), but she’s also returning for more “Bones” sooner than we expected! Coming from TVLine:
The Bones episode that you and Michael were talking about on Spoiler Alert!, the one dealing with Sweets’ childhood, does it have a title yet? Also related to Sweets: Is Danielle Panabaker returning anytime soon? –Ed
I’ve got a two-for-one special for you, Ed: The aforementioned semi-Sweets episode, “The Fact in the Fiction,” is tentatively scheduled to air Feb. 25. But you’ll want to also tune in Feb. 11, when Panabaker reprises her role as FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling. (That episode, “The Shot in the Dark,” is the one in which a gunned-down Brennan “reunites” with her mother.)
So mark your calendars, fans. FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling is back on TV on February 11!
USA Network has released the descriptions for two of the upcoming “Necessary Roughness” episodes. Danielle will be featured in both of them!
Season 2, Episode 12: FROZEN FISH STICKS (TV-14-D-L)
January 23, 2013 9/10C
Dr. Dani wants to get back to work with her patients, but getting there might require her to become a patient herself. TK returns to the Hawks ready to work, only to find that another wide-out has taken his place. Juliette Pittman (Danielle Panabaker), Nico, and the Hawks’ front office clash in the wake of Pittman’s death.
Season 2, Episode 13: HITS AND MYTHS (TV-PG-D-L-S)
January 30, 2013 9/10C
Dr. Dani treats two famous rockers. TK struggles to navigate team politics in a bid to get his old job back. The team tries to adjust to Juliette’s bizarre brand of leadership. Dani’s subconscious is telling her something about her love life, but what?
Danielle Panabaker returns to “Necessary Roughness” (more about her first appearance on the show) this Wednesday, January 23 in Season 2, Episode 12: “Frozen Fish Sticks”. She will reprise her role as Juliette Pittman, daughter of the now deceased Marshall Pittman, and therefore new owner of the New York Hawks. She will be featured in 4 of the upcoming episodes. Examiner.com has something more to say about her character:
As season 2 continues, we’ll also see TK building another relationship, but Brooks wouldn’t say how close he gets to that person. The person in question is Danielle Panabaker’s Juliette Pittman. Both have had struggles with addiction, but he’s taking his recovery much more seriously than she is. The actor teased, “They start hanging out a little bit, and one things leads to another, and then there’s an opportunity for TK to cross the line.” He wouldn’t say if it does, but this relationship will give “a little insight into how much he’s changed.”
Read on and watch a new clip featuring a not-so-sober Juliette:
Dread Central brings another exclusive interview. This time with ‘Girls Against Boys’ Co-Producer, Daniel Sollinger. He has some interesting things to say about both the film and Danielle Panabaker. I’ve also updated the gallery with two new stills from the movie, read on to discover both of them!
Dread Central: What attracted you to this project?
Daniel Sollinger: The script had gotten very good coverage at my agency, and my agent was excited that they were considering me. But when I read the script, I didn’t quite get it. I knew it was different, and that the dialogue was unique, but I wasn’t sure how the violence was going to play and how the relationship between the two girls would work. Then, once I started talking to Austin (read our previous interview with Austin Chick here), and got a sense of where he was going, I knew it was going to be a fun ride, and I jumped on board.
Dread Central: How was it working with Austin Chick in assisting him realize his vision?
Daniel Sollinger: Mediocre directors are easy to produce for because there are no surprises. For example, you know they are going to do a master shot, a medium shot, and then a close-up. A good director is much more challenging because they do things differently and are not satisfied by mediocrity. Austin is like that. He really pushes everyone, not just to do the best job they have ever done, but to think differently. He is the most focused director I have ever worked with and does not suffer fools lightly. We got along well because I realized early on I needed to bring my ‘A’ game. I tried to listen hard to what his vision was and only piped up if I felt I had something to contribute. To help understand his vision, I usually rode with him to set to preview the day and then would have dinner with him after shooting to do a post mortem. To me, the only way to be an effective producer is to crawl inside the director’s head. It was an awesome experience.
Dread Central: What was your experience in working with Panabaker, whom Chick described as “an absolute pleasure to work with.”
Daniel Sollinger: I agree. First of all, she is gorgeous and sweet. Secondly, there is something about her face in close-up. Her expressions are understated, which leaves a lot of room for the audience to project what they are feeling onto her. That is not an easy trick. She is also highly, highly intelligent. She would often point out technical problems before the experienced technicians were aware of them. She always seemed at least one step ahead of the rest of us. I also like actors who come to work early, know their lines – it’s surprising how many don’t – and who work as hard as the rest of the crew. I think she got, like, four hours of sleep the last three days of shooting. She never complained once. I wish she was in every movie of mine.
