Problematic Faves

On this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie, I get to chat with actor and activist David Pevsnerwhom I interviewed for last month’s issue of Zoomer on the publication of his memoir Damn Shame: Desire, Defiance and Show Tunes — about a favorite film of his: John Hughes’ 1984 directorial debut Sixteen Candles, which made Molly Ringwald a movie star and also defined an entire genre of teen comedy — warts and all.

It’s the very definition of a problematic fave, but that just means there’s a lot to dig into. Join us! Subscribe on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play and Stitcher and get the episode immediately, or download it directly from the web. (And in related news: Hey, look! I finally fixed our DNS issues!)

And then you can go on with the rest of your life, listening to Friday’s NOW What — which is a panel conversation about the end of our Love Your Body series — and catching up to the reviews on last week’s What to Watch page.

The monthly streaming lookaheads have started, too: Our Netflix and Disney+ previews are up, with more to come this week. And what of the movie theatre experience? Why, we’ll be back in theatres next week, according to Cineplex and TIFF. Hope that works out.
