Celia - 1989 - Ann Turner - The Last New Wave

Ann Turner's 1989 horror/drama Celia is a film that has almost been lost to time. It's a powerful film that stars Rebecca Smart in the titular role of Celia, a young girl who is questioning her place in the world after the death of her grandmother. Touching on themes of communism, politics and the desire to own a rabbit, Celia is a brilliant film that is crying out for rediscovery. With thanks to guest hosts David Hart from Pop Culture Case Study and Anya Novak from AnyaWrites.com and Daily Grindhouse, the film is covered in great detail. Even if you haven't seen the film, I highly recommend giving this one a listen.

Trainwreck

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like JUDD APATOW. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world. Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
