PROJECTING FILM: Please Stand By (Planes, Trains & Automobiles meets Nurse Betty)

On this episode we hit the road with Dakota Fanning in her new film PLEASE STAND BY about a Trekkie pursuing her dream of getting her script produced while her family catches up with her (in more ways than one). This inspires a look back at not only our previous episode on THE ROAD MOVIE (hey you should download that) but also that blend of fantasy in NURSE BETTY and the harsh realities of travel in PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES. Along the way we both embrace and reject Patton Oswalt's proud use of the Klingon language.
Feel free to embrace and reject us at the links below!

Not very often do we get to see a portrayal of a young woman with autism. It was very realistic and I loved her inner dialogue. Patton Oswalt played a small but important part of the story; understanding someone who is different. I recommend this movie for those who know someone with autism or want to walk in the shoes of one.
