Sundance, Vanessa Kirby, Phyllida Lloyd discussed on Press Play with Madeleine Brand


Right, Tim, this looks a little bit like an Irish version of a lifetime movie. It's just just a little better than that. I was actually thinking like a less great version of Full Monty in terms of an inspirational Sort of tale clear done, who co wrote the screenplay stars as this single mother who Needs a permanent place for her and her young kids toe live. And so she gets the idea that she's going to build her own house, using the work from like friends of hers in the community that kind like rallies around her to build this house because she has the sex husband. He's abusive. She wants to get away from him, and she wants to have a permit home for her kids. And so the story of herself is very much about this woman. Building this house and also as the title service suggest. She finds herself in the process, so it's sort of a feel good tail. It's very sweet, Clear done is really sort of charming and empathetic as this woman has gone through a lot and just wants to help her kids movies, not great biting, stretch the imagination. It's kind of convoluted. It definitely is emotionally manipulative at times. But all in all, I do think it works. Okay, Jacqueline. What do you think He saw that Sundance? Yeah, I saw this one at Sundance. And I think honestly, it definitely has a Rhodes colored tent to me because it was one of those movies that I actually got to see you with people around me. So it was a movie that kind of holds a special place in my heart. I really liked it. I got toe talk to the director Phyllida Lloyd, and I thought that what she spoke about was How this was not just a movie about women helping themselves, but it was a crew of women. And just I think. Ah, lot of that really sort of made me think the film was bigger than itself. But in addition to that, Harriet Walter is incredible is Peggy. I thought she did an incredible job. And, yeah, I think it's a cute Very well made Lifetime movie. So you would side with that description yet. It's more I would a little bit. It does. It's not even Pollyannish, but very inspirational. How about that? Okay? All right, well, sticking with the distressed mom fame. Our next movie is called pieces of a woman. It's stars Vanessa Kirby. You may know her as Princess Margaret in the Crown and Shailagh buff. I wanted.

Coming up next
