A Friend in the Dark

This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is a little on the grim side, as Joey Klein — writer-director of the powerful two-hander The Other Half — brings Josh Mond’s regrettably overlooked 2015 drama James White to the show.

It’s a serious movie, and the conversation is serious as well; we discuss movies about characters in crisis, the importance of going all the way with a story and the challenge of the white-people-problems subgenre. But it’s also about a movie we both found really moving.

You can find it at all the usual spots — iTunesGoogle PlayStitcher — or download it straight from the web. And please go see The Other Half when it opens theatrically in Toronto and Vancouver this Friday. It’s a movie that really benefits from the cinematic experience.
