Podcast: The 15:17 to Paris / Top 3 Performances by Non-Professional Actors – Episode 260

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Clint Eastwood’s latest film in The 15:17 to Paris, an experiment that cast the real-life heroes of the events it depicts. Using that film as inspiration, we discuss our favorite performances by non-professional actors and actresses. We also talk about a few trailers and we finally reveal our latest Movie Series we’ll be starting soon.

Eastwood has been known to make some bold and experimental choices when it comes to his direction, however, we are sad to report that The 15:17 to Paris doesn’t have much beyond that. Still, we enjoyed the conversation and the film inspired a great Top 3 that we really loved diving into, so maybe it wasn’t a complete failure. Lastly, be on the lookout for our Episode 260 Bonus Content as we review the Louis Malle film Elevator to the Gallows, per a patreon donation!

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!

Recently we saw trailers for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Deadpool 2, Venom and Hereditary, and thought it would be fun to discuss them on this week’s show. We also revealed our next Movie Series, which we hope to start soon!

Top 3 Performances by Non-Professional Actors (53:15)
As mentioned above, this was a topic that we really enjoyed talking about for our Top 3 this week. There are so many great performances over the years by non-professional actors and actresses that made this list quite challenging. In fact, a few of these are some of our favorites of all-time, making the process even more difficult. But it was also a joy to discuss. That said, what would make your Top 3?
