Built in the wooded canyon area of Malibu's Serra Retreat, this home combines the appeal of a contemporary loft with the rustic exterior look of a Hamptons barn, using floor-to-ceiling sliding glass pocket doors in many rooms to create an indoor-outdoor environment. Designed by Los Angeles architect Michael Kovac, the house was built around a silk floss tree that shades the patio by the pool. The interior design was by Vanessa Alexander, who owns the home with her husband, Steve Alexander, a film producer.

Writer-director David Trueba strips his characters bare, figuratively and literally, in the language-driven two-hander "Madrid, 1987," which uses a May-December pairing to explore a moment of intense transition for Spain.

Singer and actress Julie Andrews has listed the Brentwood house she owned with her late husband, director and screenwriter Blake Edwards , for $2.649 million. Less than a month after coming on the market, the tidy white home with gray shutters is already in escrow. The traditional-style house features a family room and living room with French doors opening to a fanciful garden that appears to be "practically perfect in every way" to borrow a phrase from "Mary Poppins. " The formal dining room has a cathedral ceiling and glass walls.

Transgender activist Eli Erlick, 18, was on the phone from her home in the small Mendocino County town of Willits and I could not resist asking her to respond to something uttered recently on the radio by James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family. "God made us male and female," said Dobson, expressing distaste for California's groundbreaking new law that requires schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms and play on the sports teams of the gender they identify with.
