Podcast: Bombshell / Portrait of a Lady on Fire – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and Jay discuss Bombshell and Portrait of a Lady on Fire.
Jay returns after recovering from his illness last week to talk about a pair of fascinating movies. The first is the surprisingly stylish story of Roger Ailes’ serial sexual harassment at Fox News, Bombshell. Jay Roach (the director of three Austin Powers movies and two iterations of Meet the Parents) seems like an odd fit for the film, but he has made a career transition to political films, recently. Bombshell features a stacked cast but has received fairly mixed reviews. Ryan and Jay seem to be on the same page, though!
Then, the guys cover Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Céline Sciamma’s late 18th century love story. It has been one of the most celebrated films of 2019, but it might be best known for the fact that France did not choose it as its submission for Best International Film at the Oscars. Do Ryan and Jay agree with the hype? Listen and find out!
