Podcast: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood / Autumn Sonata – Episode 353

Podcast: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood / Autumn Sonata – Episode 353

This week’s episode is brought to you by Casper. Sign up today and get $50 toward your first purchase!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and continue our Ingmar Bergman Movie Series with his 1978 film Autumn Sonata! JD also gives his brief thoughts on One Child Nation and Last Christmas.

While we are actively planning for Marriage Story and Scenes From a Marriage in a few weeks, it’s uncanny how we have accidentally paired up our Bergman Series films with 2019 films that are eerily similar in their themes and ideas. This was the case a few weeks ago when we discussed The Lighthouse and Peronsa on Episode 349, but it’s also at play this week with A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and Autumn Sonata. We even joke about how their the same films, which in many ways they are, despite them being tonally very different experiences. So, that is to say, we had a lot of fun with this episode.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

– Notes / One Child Nation / Last Christmas (41:49)
As noted above, JD was able to catch up with a few films this last week. One being the documentary One Child Nation, arguably the most heartbreaking film you’ll see in 2019. He also caught up with Paul Feig’s Last Christmas, and gave his thoughts on that film and its twist that so many people are talking about
