Thursday’s Package

Screen-Shot-2014-04-15-at-4.33.21-PMAnother issue of NOW, another wave of interviews. This is what I do, people.

This week I talk to Jenny Slate and Gillian Robespierre, respectively the breakout star and writer-director of Obvious Child, which is very good, and to Richie Mehta, writer-director of I’ll Follow You Down, which is decent enough until the last few minutes, darn it. (The Robespierre Q&A, a web exclusive, should be up later this afternoon.)

I also take a look at the outdoor screening series TIFF has mounted for WorldPride weekend, as a satellite to its Bent Lens program. Really, who wouldn’t want to see Hitchcock’s Rope under the stars?

Oh, and tied to the release of Obvious Child, here’s a Top 5 listicle on the post-SNL careers of five recent graduates of the show. It comes with a different photo of Jenny Slate! Neat, right?
