    What Is Love: The Photograph and Downhill

    What Is Love: The Photograph and Downhill

    For Valentine's Day, we look at two very different types of date movies. With The Photograph, Canadian director Stella Meghie tells the tale of a daughter, played by Issa Rae, trying to understand her mother's early life. Along the way, Rae's character begins falling in love with a young journalist, portrayed by LaKeith Stanfield.  In Downhill, the married couple played by Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus question what love looks like when children are involved - and after tragedy almost strikes. Podcaster Kevin McCarthy and film critic Lauren Veneziani -- married film buffs -- detail what they love most about a movie theatre date night, and host Natasha Gargiulo even has a sweet love story that centres on, you guessed it, a movie theatre.

    Girls Get Even: Birds of Prey and The Rhythm Section

    Girls Get Even: Birds of Prey and The Rhythm Section

    This week, two films about women out to even the score. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie as Harley, who, as the Joker's recently ex-girlfriend, has a few beefs with male supervillains. And The Rhythm Section stars Blake Lively as a woman on a mission to avenge the death of her family. To help us understand what makes these characters tick like virtual time bombs, host Natasha Gargiulo speaks with psychologist Hina Khan. We also get some unique perspective from Mark Burnell, who wrote both the original novel and the screenplay for The Rhythm Section.
