Documentaries, if documented right, give you the deepest insights into the documented person or a situation. Having said that, Netflix has one more heart-wrenching story of exposing the truths of polygamy. Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey is the docuseries that uncovers the reality of Warren Jeffs and the FLDS sect.

Streaming on Netflix now, the docuseries explores the Texas-based polygamous Mormon sect. It was led by Jeffs, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The show uses unseen archive footage from within the group to portray how it worked.

Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey and the horrors of Warren Jeffs

“Warren Jeffs was our president. He was the Prophet. And how could you place a human over God?” says a woman. In this four-part docuseries, director Rachel Dretzin exposes the cult and Jeffs in a surprising way. The portrayal is largely from the perspective of those women, who successfully escaped and bravely document the cult’s abuses.

Utah attorney Roger Hoole says that it was hard to prove. The law enforcement and politicians were not interested in disrupting families. He says most people in Utah, the mainstream Mormons, people like him, see polygamy as an embarrassment. But that’s not the problem apparently. It is the secondary crimes that happen within these societies that cause real problems.

“That’s when all sorts of mischief can take place and that’s what happened with the FLDS,” added Hoole.

What is the FLDS?

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) is an offshoot of mainstream Mormonism. It began when the church outlawed polygamy.

“The more the wives, the more children you have, the higher in heaven you’ll be,” is the fundamental thinking of FLDS.

Wallace Jeffs describes in the show that the members of the FLDS are taught that to get to the “highest degree of the celestial kingdom,” a man has to have at least 3 wives when on Earth. If you reach the highest degree, they believe that you can create worlds, galaxies, and the universe, basically become a God.


Now, who is Warren Jeffs?

Warren Jeffs was one of the many members of FLDS. The members were in consensus activities, but things got much worse when Jeff took over and established himself as the leader. He took over when Rulon died in 2002, even though the FLDS teachings claimed that he would never die.

“He manipulated their beliefs and turned it into money and power and sex. And they ended up following him right off the cliff,” said Utah attorney Roger Hoole in Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey.

Jeff married 78 times and 24 out of them were with children. Women in the cult were literally children. They were abused, raped, and married to/by older men. In 2006, he faced charges with two counts of accomplice to rape, arrested in L.A.

Jeff is serving a life sentence after a 2011 conviction.

The maker of the show, when she went for research, looked at them and heard their stories. She only had one thought in her mind, “These women could have been my daughter, my mother, or me.”

Obviously exposing a story like this would take so much courage and Rachel Dretzin has done an incredibly brave job.

“I wasn’t scared of death, I was scared of disobeying the profit… I would have rather died than disobey,” this statement by Erna Black really exposes the horrifying level of control Jeffs has had over there.

So, there goes another must-watch documentary from Netflix: Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey. Will you stream this one?

Exclusive: Sadie Sink Herself Takes Us Through The Journey of Max Mayfield on Stranger Things –




Versatile Sadie Sink Gives Tough Competition to ‘Stranger Things’ Co-star Millie Bobby Brown in Hair Styling

#Sadie #Sink #Takes #Journey #Max #Mayfield #Stranger

We all have our stories to tell. Along the journey, we make bonds unbreakable and subplots that are just amazeballs. But in the end, it’s just us with a pen and an empty paper to write our own plot. Well, that’s not limited to real life only. Fictional characters have anecdotes more enticing than anyone else. And Stranger Things folks have it done just right. Along with the entire plot, each one of them has a unique story to tell. One such is that of Max Mayfield. And how beautiful it would feel to listen to it from non-other than Sadie Sink, the actress herself.

Max Mayfield is a strong character who won our hearts just as she entered the Hawkins high school back in season 2. The little girl who didn’t fear showing her middle finger to Billy, the annoying brother. And a teenager who risked her life to save the township of Hawkins. Max Mayfield is everything but boring. And undoubtedly, all the credits go to Sadie Sink, the actress who embodied the character so well that we couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the role.

Recently, after the premiere of volume 2 of Stranger Things season 4, Sadie took it to herself to tell us about the journey of this amazing character throughout the series.

Sadie Sink thinks her character is a stunning blend of sarcasm and smartness

Well, there’s no denial of Sadie Sink’s remark about Max Mayfield. But that’s not all. In the video, the actress takes us on the beautiful journey of Maxine in the series. From a girl who kept pretty much everything to herself in the second season to the one who became her friend’s favorite and almost sacrificed herself to save the world. Max is truly a smart and honest girl the heroes of Hawkins needed in Netflix’s Stranger Things.

She says, “her journey with grieving Billy and the guilt she feels along with it. I feel like you are constantly peeling back layer after layer.” She thinks that the side of Max where she keeps pretty much everything to herself and then gradually opens up about it is interesting. She also feels that it has been really cool for Max as the audience gets to see different sides of her each season. One thing that remained the same about Max, according to her, is “she stays fiercely loyal, no matter what happens in Hawkins.”

Do you agree with Sadie Sink? What are your thoughts about her character, Max Mayfield? Let us know in the comment section below.

The ghost has come to live! With the changing dynamics of season 3 of Umbrella Academy, things have gone a little wilder. As we meet several new characters including Ben Hargreeves, the beloved ghost from the previous season. Creators have added some spice to his character by bringing him back to life as a Sparrow member in the alternative world. Fans’ jaws dropped to see the wicked version of this sweet boy and a sudden change in his behavior. Maybe life doesn’t suit him or he is haunted by his afterlife. Well, it’s up to Ben what emotions he is feeling in the fresh life of a fresh season. However, we still have the actor Justin H Min to find answers to all our questions. Let’s dig into what experience Justin has shared with the fan during the Netflix Geeked Week event.

Justin H Min got a vocal coach to bring Sparrow Ben in season 3

Justin H Min is an embodiment of the snobbish and dark character in Umbrella Academy season 3. For which he had to transform himself into an opposite personality. A recent video posted by Geeked Week on Twitter read:

“did you know Justin H. Min even changed his vocal register to transform into Sparrow Ben in THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY Season 3?”

The post stated that to build the character of new despiteful Ben he had to take some intense training. Justin revealed before shooting the whole Sparrow sequence he prepared things with trainers.

“So physically I felt different already, and then vocally, I got a vocal coach to sort of work on my register, my cadence,” remarked Justin.

Because in his previous role his dialogues were faded and incomplete as he was a spirit. However, he was no more a shady ghost and he had to make the audience feel his presence. He needed to have that authority and expressiveness in his voice. Which he was aware of and worked on to outshine as a reborn character.

However, it was more hilarious than powerful, and that is all that we live for! Check out what we are talking about right here.

Charlie Heaton channels his inner Winona Ryder as he reveals Joyce’s Saturday night plans

In the video, that features Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Natalia Dyer, they had to intact a quirk that one of their co-star’s characters has or does or they made absolutely terrible yet hilarious puns. Although Keery and Dyer did their best, it was Charlie Heaton’s impression of Joyce Byers that stole the show entirely.

Heaton had to answer the question that what does Joyce do on a Saturday night. Now, the answer to that question was already with him. Which was, “Netflix and Will“. But it was his pure genius and acting skills that elevated the fun in it. The Stranger Things actor accurately copied the exact manner in which Winona Ryder’s Joyce calls out Will’s name when searching for him. And you could almost feel that it was actually Ryder who is screaming, “Will, Will, Will“. Watch it for yourself.

Of course, Joe Keery and Natalia Dyer’s attempts were great as well. And you can check them out as well.
