LOVE, ACTUALLY: The recent Hole release “Nobody’s Daughter” has people finally looking past the well-publicized antics (cf. the 2004 nipple incident), sketchy nip/tuckage and incomprehensible Tweets of Courtney Love to what everyone always forgets about her: Talent. Here’s hoping we’ll get a lion’s share of the latter as Love takes the stage at Terminal 5 tonight and tomorrow. 

LAUNDRERED: Mormons: They love movies, but their church isn’t so keen on any content beyond a G rating. In the documentary “Cleanflix,” filmmakers Andrew James and Joshua Ligairi (who grew up within the faith) look into the phenomenon whereby video rental businesses in Utah took it upon themselves to edit objectionable content out of popular films—until the Hollywood community came calling, none too happy about their work being snipped to bits. Fascinating stuff. The directors will be on hand for a Q&A after tonight’s screening at the IFC. 8PM. 

“PRETTY” WOMAN: In the 1980s, untold numbers of teen girls looked to Molly Ringwald for their blueprint to teen girl identity—and now, in her self-help memoir “Getting the Pretty Back,” the actress shares her hard-won wisdom for navigating womanhood, to help the XX set “get through the murky milestones and identity issues that crop up long after the prom ends.” She launches the book at Barnes & Noble Tribeca at 7PM.
