On this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie, I’m joined by actress and writer Tamara Podemski, whom you may know from the beloved ’90s show Ready Or Not, the more recent feature The Lesser Blessed and a dozen other things including Dance Me Outside and Four Sheets to the Wind.
This week, she’s in Gail Harvey’s not-exactly-a-thriller Never Saw It Coming, playing a friendly police detective who complicates an already frantic day for Emily Hampshire’s phony psychic. And I was more than happy to get her on the show, especially when I heard she wanted to talk about The Band’s Visit, Eran Kolirin’s charming 2007 fable about a group of Egyptian policemen stranded for a day and a night in an Israeli village.
We didn’t get to talk about Ronit Elkabetz as much as we should have — time was tight — but other than that, it’s a pretty satisfying conversation. You should listen in!
