Podcast: Love, Simon / A Fantastic Woman – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, we tackle the charming teenage romance Love, Simon, starring Nick Robinson in what is sure to become a star-making performance for him. We also review the Chilean film A Fantastic Woman, starring transgender actress Daniela Vega from director Sebastián Lelio.
Both films tackle subject matter worth celebrating, and it’s even better that both have already been celebrated in some way. Love, Simon already holds the title as the first mainstream romance film to feature a gay lead character (distributed by 20th Century Fox), and A Fantastic Woman recently won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. This conversation allows for us to offer our input whether these films deserve their respective statuses, and to be quite honest, this turned into one of our all-time favorite Extra Film episodes.
Hopefully you feel the same way as you listen to this week’s Extra Film segment, and as always let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!
