WOMEN TALKING and THE FABELMANS on Episode #441

The cast of Women Talking sitting in a dark barn looking concerned.We start by reviewing Steven Spielberg’s autobiographical film THE FABELMANS (2:14), which explores his love of filmmaking, his parents’ marriage, and the antisemitism he experienced growing up. They’re themes we’ve seen him tackle before in his movies, but we’re split on whether there’s enough unique value that makes this movie worth watching. Next, we delve into Sarah Polley’s WOMEN TALKING (33:34), a compelling chamber piece drama about women from a religious community who have been abused by the men in it, debating whether they should forgive them, stay and fight, or leave. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we discuss a Patron’s choice, the Hallmark movie HANUKKAH ON RYE!

Little do Kristen Stewart and Vincent Cassel know the hell that awaits them in UNDERWATER

This week starts with a critique of how this year’s Oscar nominations (2:25) shamefully overlook women and people of color. Then Megan reviews three movies. First, LITTLE JOE (11:15), a sci-fi film with gorgeous cinematography. Second, UNDERWATER (21:25), a fantastic monster movie starring Kristen Stewart. Third, THE GRUDGE (32:45), a reboot that left her wanting more. Lastly, Dave and Evan take on THE WAVE (41:34), a convoluted sci-fi flick with Justin Long that never adds up.
