Carlee Baker is no stranger to making movies. She was part of a demonic brood in “Wicked Lake,” after all, but with a role in “The Woman,” she and her castmates got to experience bona-fide, boffo Hollywood buzz. The film generated a bit of controversy and a lot of talk and hopefully that will translate in box office for the film later this year. Read More»

That doesn’t leave much time for talking to each other. Resolve to pick just one day each month to be a TV-free day. Do something together as a family that day. Read More»
