Keen-eared listeners of Someone Else’s Movie may have noticed we’ve changed studios for the last couple of episodes. But it’s a trick! Construction is still forcing me to record at Frequency HQ, but both today’s and last week’s shows were taped many months ago. You’re hearing the past!
But the past is present, in a way, since actor, producer and occasional podcaster Jen Pogue‘s latest movie Things I Do For Money just had its world premiere at Whistler over the weekend. And there was that whole Best of the Decade issue of NOW, in which we talked about the top Toronto movies of the 2010s … making it the perfect time to release Jen’s episode on one of them.
That movie is The F Word, Michael Dowse‘s lively romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan as two attractive, intelligent young people who are perfect for each other, but can’t be together … so they decide to be friends instead. Yes, we’ve seen this before, but rather than pretend we haven’t, Elan Mastai‘s script leans right into the When Harry Met Sally … of it all, setting the conversations in fun locations and spreading the commentary out to a host of interesting actors, like Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Megan Park, Rafe Spall and Sarah Gadon.
It’s a delightful film, and it was a delight to talk to Jen about it. So you should listen in! Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Stitcher to get the episode instantly, or stream it on Spotify, or just download it directly from the web. And then go watch The F Word again. It’s so good.
