We kick off the show this week by reviewing Dave Franco and Alison Brie’s surprisingly nuanced romcom SOMEBODY I USED TO KNOW (2:09). It tells the story of a reality show producer (Brie) who returns to her quaint hometown and reconnects with her ex Sean (Jay Ellis), who is engaged to a woman (Kiersey Clemons) that reminds her of the person she used to be. Then, we cover Davy Chou’s RETURN TO SEOUL (25:50), a compelling and layered exploration of identity. It follows a French woman (Park Ji-min) who returns to Korea to experience the country and try to find her birth parents. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about a Patron’s choice, the 1996 Mike Nichols queer comedy THE BIRDCAGE!
