Podcast: Aftersun / The Menu – Episode 509

This week’s episode is brought to you by the film Smile. Follow us on social media for your chance to win a FREE digital code!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Charlotte Wells’ blistering directorial debut Aftersun and Ryan McQuade joins for a review of The Menu! Plus, a few brief thoughts on Causeway and Fire of Love.

A huge thanks to Ryan for filling in for The Menu. As you’ll hear on the episode, JD had knee surgery this last week and he wasn’t able to make it to a theater to see the film. So we’re very grateful for his flexibility. As for Aftersun, it’s one of our most passionate conversations of the fall season given our love for the film.

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!
