This week in COVIDville, we kick off the show with an email from one of our longtime listeners. SHE-RA, anyone? Then it’s off to the movies! Megan and Dave cover MADE IN ITALY (6:36), a drama starring Liam Neeson and his real-life son (Micheál Richardson) as an estranged father and son renovating a family home and dealing with the death of a loved one. Then Megan and Evan discuss the tragic Guatemalan horror film LA LLORONA (14:46), about a former dictator on trial for genocide, ghosts, and a mysterious Indigenous housekeeper. The whole gang talks about I USED TO GO HERE (25:42), writer/director Kris Rey’s warm comedy about a maybe-failed novelist (Gillian Jacobs) revisiting her college and getting caught up in the lives of its students. Finally, it’s Amy Seimetz’s SHE DIES TOMORROW (38:25), a tense film that defies categorization, starring Kate Lyn Sheil, Jane Adams, Chris Messina, and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-her Michelle Rodriguez. On this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we discuss Brian Yuzna’s body horror film, SOCIETY, picked by one of our Selectpiece patrons.

This week a conversation about pizza takes an unexpected turn before we dig into the movies. Evan and Megan start with Joko Anwar’s IMPETIGORE (2:08), a creepy, but confusing Indonesian horror film on Shudder. Then they cover RADIOACTIVE (13:45), Marjane Satrapi’s surreal Marie Curie biopic starring Rosamund Pike. Next, Dave joins in to talk about YES, GOD, YES (29:38), Karen Maine’s heartwarming early 00s coming-of-age flick. Lastly, they discuss THE RENTAL (44:10), Dave Franco’s tense directorial debut. On our Patreon exclusive audio this week, we talk about F. Gary Gray’s 1996 film SET IT OFF.
