    Rian Johnson joins the show to chat with Krista about his Knives Out follow up, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, which he wrote, produced, and directed.

    Florence Pugh

    Florence Pugh joins the show to talk about her latest film, The Wonder. Directed by Sebastián Lelio and based on Emma Donoghue’s book by the same name, the film transports us to 1862, where English Nightingale Nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) has been called to the Irish Midlands by a devout community to conduct a 15-day examination over one of their own. Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy) is an 11-year-old girl who claims not to have eaten for four months, surviving miraculously on “manna from heaven.” As Anna’s health rapidly deteriorates, Lib is determined to unearth the truth, challenging the faith of a community that would prefer to stay believing.

    Pugh shares what fascinates her about playing women battling the societal constraints of their time period, highlights the collaborative relationship between herself and Lelio, and explains how the film's talented chefs made food which was supposed to appear unappealing on camera, surprisingly delicious.

    She also reveals the inspiration behind her popular video series, "Cooking With Flo," emphasizes the importance of being in control of her own career, and details her perfect day off -- which starts with a sandwich from Marks & Spencer and ends with a martini.
