This week on the InSession Film Podcast, the great Sophia Ciminello joins us to discuss Steven Spielberg’s latest The Fabelmans and we also review Guillermo del Toro’s new animated film Pinocchio!

A massive thanks to Sophia for joining us on the show this week. Her work on Extra Film over these last few months was astounding, and we’re grateful that she was able to hop on with us after they concluded our Martin Scorsese Movie Series with an almost 3-hour episode(!!). Her passion for The Fabelmans was more than welcomed and we had a great time talking about Spielberg through it all. We also had a lovely time reviewing Pinocchio, one of the best animated films from the last few years.

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!
