This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Sean Baker’s latest film in The Florida Project and also Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck. Using those films as inspiration, we also discuss our Top 3 coming of age movies in the 21st century so far – a daunting but fun task that we thoroughly enjoyed.

On this show, JD also gives us his thoughts on Goodbye Christopher Robin (38:34) after missing out on that review on Extra Film. We also announce the winner to our Blu-ray Contest and talk about films set in Florida for our poll this week.

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 Coming of Age Movies (21st Century so far) (46:39)
We are big fans of the coming of age genre, with some films under this umbrella breaching our favorite films of all-time. So we knew we needed to narrow it down in some way, and we decided to focus on films from this century. And wow, there are so many great coming of age films to pick from for our lists this week. The last 17 years has conjured some phenomenal movies that fit this bill, so it was a difficult challenge, but we one we loved grappling with this week. What would be your top 3?
