EP. 315 — Moonstruck w/ David Sims

This week, Paul is away on tour, but Amy is joined by fellow film critic and podcast host, David Sims (Blank Check). They break down the 1987 romcom Moonstruck, starring Cher and Nicolas Cage. Amy and David question Cher’s character “jinx”, notice the moon woven into all the details of the film, and learn about Norman Jewison’s fantasy headspace when making his films. So sit back and let the moon hit your eye!

 

Next week, Amy will be chatting with Rico Gagliano from the Mubi Notebook Podcast and they are talking all things LOST IN TRANSLATION!
