Gyllenhaal stars in the HBO series 'The Deuce' as Candy, a sex worker who becomes a porn actress and then a porn director in 1970s New York City. She says the series is about the "imbalance of power between men and women — in terms of sex, in terms of art, in terms of business." <br/><br/>Film Critic Justin Chang reviews 'The Sisters Brothers,' starring John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix. <br/><br/>In her book 'Pure,' Linda Kay Klein reflects on the "deep, long-lasting shame" caused by churches that claim women and girls are responsible for the sexual desires of men. Klein left the evangelical church in her 20s and is the founder of Break Free Together, an organization that tries to help people escape the sexual shame from their upbringing.
