Finding Her Voice Episode Nine: New Year, New Discoveries
It's January which means we're all still recovering from the dumpster fire that was 2016. To try and kick off 2017 right (well as right as it can currently be) we aimed our sights at being more productive in highlighting female voices on our Twitter account @FindingHerVoice. Gabrielle, AJ and I also set personal goals to seek out the women directed content and spotlight it personally.
To keep in trend we watching Mia Hansen-Løve's 2016 quietly stunning Things to Come and 2003's Under the Tuscan Sun directed by Audrey Wells. We spoke about the romantic nature of both without either succumbing to typical "romance" archetypes, the differences between how both actresses have been allowed/not allowed to age onscreen and why Things to Come is the Isabella Huppert performance to see from 2016, not Elle.
For February we'll be taking a bite out of the Valentines Day atmosphere with Gina Prince-Bythewood's Beyond the Lights and Gillian Robespierre's Obvious Child which did the wonderful thing of introducing a wider audience to the talents and charms of Jenny Slate.
Much love and happy listening. Find us on Itunes and give us a follow at Twitter. Make sure to watch along with us so you can join in the live chat.
