We're lucky enough to welcome the now Oscar nominated Richard E. Grant on to the podcast to talk about his new film 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?'. As well as that, we delve in to the burning questions and rare answers found in Lee Chang Dong's new film
In 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' Melissa McCarthy is brilliantly unsympathetic as literary fraud Lee Israel. With her writing career permanently stalled, inability to get over her ex-girlfriend and no job prospects, she turns her craft to penning elaborate fake letters from the likes of Noël Coward and Dorothy Parker, with the help of her drinking buddy Jack Hock.
Adapted from Haruki Murakmi’s short story ‘Barn Burning’, Lee Chang Dong’s ‘Burning’ was the toast of Cannes, turning the heat on the Croisette even higher. It’s about Jong-soo, who dreams of becoming a writer, who bumps into Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo), a forgotten childhood friend. They begin a relationship, but she vanishes, only to return with the mysterious Ben in tow (The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun), who starts to reveal some fascinating hobbies.
Discussing the films this week are Kelly Powell, Ella Kemp, Jake Cunningham and Sam Howlett
