    Francis Lee's Gods Own Country and Ammonite

    Francis Lee's Gods Own Country and Ammonite

    We loved Francis Lee's debut film God's Own Country, so much so that we wrote about a book about it. In this episode we discussed God’s Own Country and Ammonite, two films that are somewhat the antithesis of each other, to uncover how they explore class, sex, intimacy, and labour.

    This episode features Editor-in-Chief Alex Heeney, Executive Editor Orla Smith, Associate Editor Brett Pardy, and special guest Lena Wilson.

    Why a new Rebecca adaptation now? We try to figure it out, comparing Ben Wheatley's version to Daphne Du Maurier's novel, Hitchcock's classic film, and the 1997 miniseries. We discuss actor choices, character agency, and pandering to modern audiences.

    This episode features Executive Editor Orla Smith, Editor at Large Mary Angela Rowe, and special guest Caitlin Merriman.

Great discussions of film and TV, informed and wide-ranging

Smart and comprehensive talks about (mostly) recent movies and TV. Especially good for festival coverage or Canadian cinema, but also if you love British period drama and that whole industry! Highly recommended.
