Dawn (2014, short drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"Dawn is really about what we do to young girls unwittingly, and how we send them out into the world completely unprotected, in a way that has, at times, really tragic consequences. Being polite at the risk of your own internal voice of danger being silenced is a pretty dangerous thing."

After 20 years of acting — and finally realizing she hates it — Rose McGowan has become Hollywood’s feminist whistleblower. To the industry, she says, “Fuck your rules.”

The night of June 17, Rose McGowan tweeted a screenshot of casting notes she had been sent for an audition. They read: “Please make sure you read the attached script before coming in so you understand the context of the scenes. Wardrobe Note: Black (or dark) form fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push up bras encouraged). And form fitting leggings or jeans.” With the screenshot, McGowan tweeted: “casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die.”

After tweeting it, she simply went to bed, not thinking much of it. When she awoke, the tweet had gone viral and was starting to be picked up by the media — it was, after all, about a high-profile project, Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie The Do Over. “I was like, oh dear — if you think that’s bad,” she remembered thinking. “I was mostly flummoxed by everybody thinking that was so horrible; it’s just par for the course. It was more a stupidity offense — bad manners offend me. And then I was thinking, How many people’s hands did that pass through before that was just sent out to every woman coming in?

Rose McGowan ascended to fame in the late 90s following bombshell roles in edgy horror films like The Doom Generation and Scream and in grindhouse releases like Planet Terror. While she’s perhaps best known for her relationship with Marilyn Manson–which resulted in nearly naked red carpet appearances and other media drama–the actress’s career has spanned over 20 years and earned her parts in dynamic projects. But after an accident made her realize she was tired and disturbed by her status as a sex symbol, McGowan took a hiatus from Hollywood. Now back on set as a director, she’s calling out the sexism she endured as a young woman in Hollywood and is finally taking her creativity into her own hands.

Rose McGowan, if you have noticed, has been everywhere the last few weeks. From taking to Twitter to promote her humanist/feminist/awesome agenda to promoting her short film Dawn (which you can check out in its entirely on YouTube), the iconic ’90s girl seems to be more present than ever.
For her entire career, Rose McGowan has served heaps of unapologetic attitude, from her red-carpet choices (that epic nude dress!) to her choice of strong, textured roles. As she shifts into the director’s chair, we reflect on the parts that made Rose so…Rose, and had us all proclaiming, “Eat. My. Fuck.”

Actress and director Rose McGowan has a clear message for Hollywood after she says her tweet exposing what she sees as the film industry’s sexism got her dropped from her talent agency.

“I don’t care, bring it,” McGowan, 41, told ABC News of the possibility she could be blacklisted. “You want to to play, let’s play.”

“It made me laugh and it made me sad,” McGowan said of the casting note. “I was like, really, still?”

McGowan announced in a tweet this week, that she was dropped by her agency, Innovative Artists.

The actress told ABC News she learned of it through an email.

“I just wrote back, ‘You’re hilarious,’” McGowan said. “That was my response. ‘You’re hilarious.’”
“Come on, Hollywood, get a better script,” she added. “This one’s predictable.”

From Rose:

“Dear viewer,
Dawn is a cautionary tale. We hurt girls with casual negligence. We change the course of lives with a stereotypical view shared thoughtlessly. We shape the minds of the innocent. Let’s think different and be better.
My inspirations were varied – I wanted the color palette of The Parent Trap (1961) the loneliness of an Edward Hopper painting, the driving tension of Night of the Hunter mixed with Hemingway’s unsparing style of editing. These greats are my teachers.

I layered a lot into Dawn and feel it’s best watched twice. Please enjoy for free and pass it on. THOUGHT+ART = FREEDOM
