A movie podcast where a new(ish) release inspires a conversation on two older films with a similar theme but different approaches.

Sep 28, 2015

On this episode we talk about the role of the grandparent in film by hanging out with the distant beekeeper played by Peter Fonda in ULEE’S GOLD, who has to make a decision to become more involved than he would like to be in his son’s criminal dealings in order to protect his grandchildren.
 
And in WHALE RIDER a young girl seeks to reconcile her fractured family by seeking a destiny and a role that could damage her relationship with her traditional grandfather.
 
But first, we talk about Lily Tomlin returning to comedic form in new release GRANDMA.
