Podcast: First Match / Roxanne, Roxanne – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, we discuss two Netflix originals featuring two incredibly strong young leading ladies; Olivia Newman’s First Match, starring newcomer Elvire Emanuelle, and Michael Larnell’s Roxanne, Roxanne, featuring newcomer Chanté Adams.
Say what you will about Netflix and their strategy in releasing feature length films, but this leading streaming service can sometimes distribute high quality films, and we discuss whether First Match and Roxanne Roxanne live up to that bill. And both films are more than appropriate in lumping together here; both surround themselves in the urban projects of New York City (one in Brooklyn, the other in Queens), and feature lead performances by two young black women who we really need to see more of in the near future (Emanuelle and Adams respectively); they are both that good.
We urge you give this week’s Extra Film segment a listen, and as always let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!
