Do you enjoy listening to people talk about films? What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town? Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you. Each month, the hosts discuss and review one "smaller" film in-depth, discuss upcoming film news, and give recommendations on films that you may not be aware of, ones that you haven't remembered in a while, or ones that are worth your time checking out. And all the while, the conversation never gets too "high-brow" or pretentious. Just two guys who enjoy talking about movies. Your Hosts: Alan Jackson and Chris Frye, founders of the Footcandle Film Society.
In this month's episode, the Footcandle guys discuss the film adapation of the novel "Sarah's Key", dealing with the persecution of Jewish people in France during World War II. (To all of our book club member listeners out there, we'll go ahead and break the bad news to you: they didn't care for it very much.)
Besides that review, Alan and Chris also discuss some movie news and give their "picks of the month" recommendations — one dealing with time travel on a budget, the other dealing with chaining people to radiators. Enjoy!
Running Time: 46 minutes. Hosts: Alan Jackson and Chris Frye. Original theme music by Chris Tullar (whose was recently interviewed on "I'm With the Band", found at this link!)
