Podcast: The Book of Henry, Top 3 Movies About Childhood Trauma, The Naked Kiss – Episode 226

This podcast is brought to you by Score: A Film Music Documentary. Get your tickets today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Matt St. Claire from The Filmscoop joins us to discuss Colin Trevorrow’s controversial film, The Book of Henry. Inspired by that film we discuss our Top 3 movies about childhood trauma and we honor a Patreon donation by reviewing the 1964Samuel Fuller film, The Naked Kiss.

The feedback to this show should be interesting. The Book of Henry has been heavily criticized by critics, and understandably that is fair, however we offer a slight defense for the movie that many seem to be passing over for whatever reason. Either way, the debate should be fun. Our Top 3 this week was daunting, but also very rewarding. And big thanks to Joe Campbell for his Patreon donation, which sparked our review of The Naked Kiss.

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!

Top 3 Movies About Childhood Trauma (39:46)
Inspired by The Book of Henry, we decided to tackle our “favorite” movies about childhood trauma, a subject matter that isn’t so much celebratory, but the films that depict it do have a human core to them that is hard to deny. These films aren’t necessarily enjoyable on the surface, but through the lends of cinema they offer a truth that is relatable to our all of our lives. And we hope our lists reverberate that idea. That said, what would be your top 3?
