Happily Ever Aftermath

Oct 9, 2019

This episode we discuss Polina's pick Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958). She explains how her connection is more tied to the play and Tennessee Williams than the movie. The subtext artificially created from the Hayes code confused Diana.

Diana takes full responsibility of her pick Overboard (1987), but still cringes at the kidnapping and gas-lighting. She also remembers enjoying Joanna's transition from spoiled brat to compassionate human more than the romance. Polina kept waiting for the movie to take a more interesting direction.

We accidentally go for a sports run with Polina's pick Bull Durham (1988). Teenage Polina greatly appreciated Susan Sarandon's Annie. Diana was wary of the high praise and reviews of this movie before watching it for the first time. Plus baseball puns.

We tackle (football pun!) Diana's pick Jerry Maguire (1996). Polina thinks Jerry's crisis of conscience was just food poisoning. This movie forty minutes longer than Diana remembered and she was mainly concerned with watching the redemption without the struggle.

We hit teenage Polina years as we discuss her pick Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). She shares that this was a view of the adult life she wanted at the time. Diana had to reconcile Michael Caine in a romantic context.
