EP. 131 — Eve’s Bayou

Paul & Amy use their second sight on 1997’s Creole family tragedy Eve’s Bayou! They learn why director Kasi Lemmons cut a mute observer character from the film, compare the story to To Kill A Mockingbird, and praise the film’s slippery relationship with truth and memory. Plus: A look at On Our Own, the Smollett family sitcom.

This is the third episode in our Kinspooled series on “effed up families”; next week’s film is The Royal Tenenbaums!
