Today, I’m joined by the directing and writing team Lucy McKendrick & Charlie Polinger of F*CK ME, RICHARD, which world premiered this week at SXSW. Recovering from a broken leg, Sally begins a phone relationship with Richard — a much-needed intimacy boost in her dreary haze of crushing loneliness and painkillers. They talk nonstop and fall head over heels. Things get kind of sketchy when Richard starts asking for money to pay for his mom’s “medical bills.” But Sally has some secrets of her own, and nothing is as it seems in this phone-sex-fueled psychodrama about the sick thrill of a good old-fashioned scam. Big thanks to Bookmans for sponsoring this episode and to Fort Worth for letting us use their song at the end.
