THE BROKEN HEARTS GALLERY, MULAN, RENT-A-PAL, and ROBIN’S WISH on Episode #322

Geraldine Viswanathan and Dacre Montgomery in the rom-com The Broken Hearts Gallery

This week’s show opens with everyone discussing their thoughts on the new representation and inclusion standards the Academy has established for Best Picture eligibility. Evan leads the movies with ROBIN’S WISH (8:00) the moving documentary about Robin Williams’ struggle with Lewy body dementia. Then Megan talks about MULAN (12:52), Disney’s epic live-action remake about a Chinese woman (Yifei Lu) posing as a man to fight as a warrior. Next, she and Dave review the psychological horror film RENT-A-PAL (22:23), about a lonely man (Brian Landis Folkins) who finds a new friend (Wil Wheaton) in a VHS tape. Finally, they cover THE BROKEN HEARTS GALLERY (37:50), a NYC-based rom-com about a woman (Geraldine Viswanathan) who starts an art gallery for mementos from past relationships. On our Patreon bonus audio this week, we discuss one of our all-time favorite films, Robert Zemeckis’ 1985 sci-fi classic, BACK TO THE FUTURE.
