How a thirty foot tidal surge that accompanied hurricane katrina could flood communities like mine and south louisiana and communities across the mississippi and alabama coast. It turns out that the land we were losing was our buffer from the c. I volunteered to interact with the graphics on the wall and in an instant my life change for the second time in two years. The graphic showed massive land loss in south louisiana and in encroaching see but more specifically the graphics showed the disappearance of my community and many other communities before the end of the century. I wasn't alone at the front of the room. I was standing there with other members of south louisiana's communities black native poor.

"Did not come easy. They dropped the doubles point. Although having spoken with coach nelson multiple times this season. i think he has said on the record. We can start down one now. that's fine. let's just get two singles. 'cause i'm done with the doubles point. But obviously the reason you get two singles when you have patch kaleva and czar one two losses between the two of them and then of course up top lahey failure for khuda legitimately at number four singles. Scary sight and michigan teams. Really really good young. But they've got some veterans mixed in as well you know. They almost beat stanford at last year's national indoors so they they've seen this pepperdine team before as well. That was their last match at the end of twenty nineteen. The waves are really really good. Colette yeah i and i think maybe he than they've been a little bit of disappointment as years. Good as they've done. I mean he thought with that lineup. They would be sort of north carolina like in just going everybody but they had you know with lahey not healthy that that was obviously a big blow for them and but in pressed with michigan I you know everybody started circle. That one is yeah. They could do it because michigan was not properly ryan. I'm probably should have hosted but You know the way. They came back to win that down three one. And then you know down in the last match three sets everywhere and that that was really impressive now. Having a week office probably good physically but a little bit of that momentum might be lost but but you know should they win the doubles point and then kind of you know. Go up on some courts The they could put a scare into pepper data. I still do like pepper and Just from three to five. Probably just as you know just throw one and two as as a split or whatever and then you just like pepperdine to get get those other ones elsewhere so yeah i would never pet pick against pepperdine but You know. I was very impressed with michigan last weekend. michigan could. I'm expecting them to take the doubles point and take a one a lead heading into singles. The problem is this pepperdine team is so so good at singles and yet to your point. They haven't played their best match yet. They really haven't. And i think that's the scariest thing is what happens when all six are clicking on the same day on that day they can beat anyone. Ucla north carolina taxes georgia. And we haven't seen it yet. I agree i hope. We don't see against michigan. It's fine with me if you want delayed for a little bit longer but the thing is they cannot play there..

I'm doing great. It's such an exciting day when when we're kicking off the nc double a.'s. It's one of the best days of the aaron china's. I would make the argument that the month of may is just the best month in the tennis season. You have college tennis postseason. You have french. Open getting underway usually every so often you'll get a grasp event thrown in there as well. I feel like it doesn't get any better than this. Maybe short of october.

I know you're at the easter bowl. So correct me if i'm wrong. I feel like a lot of these juniors just so excited to be back on the circuits so excited to have these playing opportunities again that yeah you know you're always going to have the little pettiness the line calls etc etc but the atmosphere at our level one was fantastic. I'm curious if you saw a similar vibe in out west. Oh yeah it was definitely like that especially from the kids that were coming from places like northern california which really really shutdown i mean from. You know they had no courts to even go to to play on so Places like that in some of the other Areas where they didn't get a lot of tennyson and it had been winner and they were reluctant to play a lot indoors So yeah it was. There was just this great feeling For everybody and i was really fortunate. Because san diego in california in general has been Really seeing their cases declined and and things open up again While we were out there so it was really a real feeling of things are getting back to normal. Absolutely i feel like should we do two minutes on how the opening up of california will affect the gavin. Newsom recall effort. We could you know. Save that for another time..

What do we know? Well, what we know so far is that the gunmen stormed the federal Colette off forestry in the city of Kaduna on the outskirts of the city, opened fire that's all the night and then kidnapped the number of students. The school actually has both male and female students. But, you know, a number of them have bean abducted and some sources I would necessary. Many of them are female. We don't know exactly how many students have been kidnapped, But some sources are saying that they could be in that dozens in the college, which has around 300 students. The authorities are saying that they hate county is under way. At the moment on also the military have been deployed and and some witnesses, so my men said that they saw On the helicopter being flown. So that's the situation at the moment, and the parents off gathered there to see me and trying to find out the fate off their Children and also to know what actually happened. And the anger The concern must be. It's such a high pitch with so many of these incidents over the last few weeks and months on because as I understand it, this college is near a Nigerian military training academy. It should have been protected. Exactly. The college is in its strategic place, if you like, because apart from the Nigerian military academy that's nd A. There is also an airport in that area and also a train station. But the abduction actually happened so many people who presumably feel that schools that doesn't that should be well protected. But we're waiting for the authorities to give us details of what really happened. And how the government perhaps managed to storm this school to kidnap this students, and remember more than three I mean more than 700 students have been kidnapped so far since December in So many I mean attacks on their schools across northern Nigeria Resume I believe by and criminal gangs who we cannot in people for ransom. The lettuce. I mean, the last one before this one was in the town off then Gaby and some for a state. They were released for the negotiation with the gunman.

Targeting schools on the insecurity generally is widespread, not only schools it affect almost all face it off the society people being abducted or killed on a daily basis.

ESPN Esports Lays Off Nearly All of Its Staff
"Was a tough day in the espn headquarters a tough week. In fact this week the worldwide leader in sports has been laying off tons of people the pandemic combined with the loss of sports at caused and declining cable. Tv subscriptions over the last few years are all potential reasons. Why but it's a combination of all those factors. Unfortunately for e. sports those layoffs also included the majority of espn sports staff says being created five years ago espn. Sports has been a leader in the space. Jacob wolf known for his wolf bonds was go to when it came to breaking roster business moves at the top level of sports. He's also a really good feature writer in addition to wolf is ps. Let go of feeling on fire. Top minds in league of legends and phenomenal writer and emily ran one of the best feature writers in east sports bar. None you'll notice a trend here other layoffs included editors who are some of the best in the business fo- tugs again some of the best the business host and video producers. Who are really good. They're all really good in all. Almost the entire department is gone though. It's unclear whether or not espn plans to fill those positions back up in time but they've jettison a talented staff who simply won't be replaceable as eastwards pumps focus on a period of free agency across a lot of the major sports eastwards publications also have just received a free agency period of their own. Suddenly a lot of talent is now available. Be interesting to see who ends up where. Espn dropping eastwards entirely surprising. I think a lot of the people on that staff knew this was coming. Jacob announced that he was moving from. Espn awhile ago but it is still sad to see ultimately eastwards content. Just doesn't drive the same numbers that content in traditional sports does so when it comes to top level accountants slashing contracts east. Sports is probably one of the first places they looked that has nothing to do with the town of the staff producing that content. Hopefully they'll find opportunities quickly and continue delivering some of the best continuity sports. If you're a position where this is an option. You should hire. jacob wolf.

Predicting the 2020 Oscars The Big Picture
"The time has come to predict the Ninety First Academy Awards. Amanda how are you feeling about this. I feel terrible as always I just. It's being wrong in public. It's my number one least least favorite thing. It's even worse than being wrong in private. We will closely tally. All of your failures on Oscar night. Because I'll be tweeting at you directly every time you get a choice wrong and then we'll also be rehashing. Those wrong choices here on the big picture live immediately. After the telecast which. I'm really excited about on Sunday night but before that we do you have to We have to pay it to the prediction. Gods and we're GonNa go through all twenty four categories here. Yes we are now. I'd like to preface that by saying as I worm my way through the back nine of illness. My voice may go at any moment here. In which case you're GONNA have to really carry the load cliff booth style okay. I was going to say that. That's just a good summation of Oscar season and at some point to talk myself out and officer does flailing filing in the dark possibly in silence. We're we're we're just trying to get to the finish line. I am hopeful that this will not be an immensely boring. podcast about predicting the Oscars because the Oscars may be boring. I will say this is by far far the easiest year in the history of my life predicting these awards okay. You know what. It's nice that you have confidence does not this and in life. Yes it is now that means okay. That means I couldn't logically see making any other choice that doesn't mean I feel that I am right okay about I guess I feel feel the same way. There were more categories that I could kind of fill in but I there are still so many to get wrong. It's just an opportunity to get things wrong. I can't had over emphasized how much I hate that. Feeling when you would finish an exam in ninth grade at the end of it when you and your classmates your little amend etes would would gather route and chat at the at the cafeteria table would you say. Would you be the person who would say. Oh my God I failed so bad. I didn't know anything. I failed. No okay okay no because I find that obnoxious and also because I had to have like my personal confidence that I was still going to defeat all of them. Were you sitting alone like a sociopath at the cafeteria table. No okay. I had some friends but I don't know we just talked about cross country or something. Well that sounds riveting okay. Let's go back to the Academy Awards. which which is the reason for this podcast? We're GONNA start at the beginning and at the place that we sort of blasphemed earlier on the show which is with shorts. I thought we were respectful. I I want people to go back. And listen and hear what we were saying which is not that they should be cut from the show and not that shorts aren't deserving but it is a different French exercise and I just think the it was interesting to try to get into the mind of what these winners would be because I think you're evaluating on different terms because it's a different type of film so let's just make a separate thing for the shorts and let everybody have their moment philosophically I agree. It's one of the few things about the sort of workaday nature of the Oscars that you and I ultimately agree on. There are three different categories for the shorts. There is best documentary short subject. Best Live Action Short film and Best Animated. We'll start with best documentary short subject. A very few people have seen these movies. I've seen some of them. I'm not going to pretend like I've seen all fifteen. Nominees Germany's shorts category. I just haven't I haven't had the time and I'm a bad person. I have had her but I have seen some of them I've seen some of them as well feel solid about. My choices will run through the the nominees for this first category in the absence by using John and Gary Byung Cam learning to skateboard in a war zone by Carol dicing her life overtakes me by Christine Samuelson. And John. Hatice Saint Louis Superman by Sri Mantra and sign ECON and walk run cha-cha by Lord. I think the overwhelming favorite favored in categories learning to skateboard in a war zone. As my pick that is awesome attack we can move on directly from there. Okay well I just don't think we should really make an attempt to talk about the quality control of these categories stories because we're just not the experts if you expertise are actually a ton of great pieces. I was reading some stuff on wire this week. About which of these shorts are serving which are not. There's a lot of great writing about the shorts. We respect the filmmakers acres. who made the shorts? It's not Medi Best Live Action Short Film Brotherhood by Mariam. Jabbour Nafta football club by the neighbors burs wooden window by Marshall Curry Saria by Bryan Buckley or sister by Delfin Gerard. I'm going with the neighbors Wendo. I want with Brotherhood. Okay that is the that's the oddsmakers favorite Brotherhood is. Yes yes so do you. Is there a reason why you you may may change. Because the neighbor's window is is the oddsmakers like upset favorite. What is that called? When it's the there's a favorite and then the underdog I guess so spoiler well in a group of five I was wondering anyway? It's number two and I think it's been in the conversation it's and it is accessible and and I just really do feel like especially people who are voting on these are sometimes just clicking through and being like oh I guess like this one I like to football club too and I feel like that has a chance I wouldn't wouldn't rule that out yet We'll have to wait and see. The oddsmakers are usually right in the shorts categories but it can't be guaranteed because these are highly unpredictable predictable because unlike a lot of the other words. We'll talk about here. There are not a lot of guild awards that predict these words. This is really the only three categories in which we have no no data to present ahead of what you know sort of what is leading the race. What is leading the charge? So we're flying blind quite a bit. which part of the reason why we're not gonNA spend too much time analyzing final category Gorriak shorts animated short To Sarah by Doria Kusturica hair. Love Matthew. Cherry Kit Bowl by Rosanna Sullivan memorable memorable by Bruno. Colette sister by CK Song Hair. Love is far and away. The favourite yes in this category. Matthew Cherry is very active twitter user. A lot of people know oh him used to work for Jordan Peele and monkey productions is a very short. I will be surprised this one out of all three. I would be the most surprised if it didn't win. I also picked love and it made me cry and under four minutes very effective I two can respond to animated films. Wow Yeah Erica. An incredible transition to our next category best animated animated feature the nominees are how to train your dragon the hidden world. I lost my body clause missing link and toy story for what did you go with. This was a last minute change and I. I don't know whether I should admit this. And the podcast bobby. Cut this if I'm breaking a Balazs but I haven't been advising a close best friend of mine on possible bets possible upsets and close friend. Yeah no it's it's a friend. The you know a friend who listens to the podcast and identified this category. I did go toy story for because I'm trying not to over. Think things but it does seem like it seems like there could be several no spoilers. Actually there's a lot of arrows pointing at clause right now. Yeah clause just won a BAFTA clause one Annie Award Clauses clearly admired tired. Mommy animating filmmaking community I don't WanNa Toy Story. Movies went to movies. Come out. That was kind of my reasoning toy story. Three was nominated for best picture which feels like a thousand years ago but this is truly one of the most storied movie franchises ever. This sounds like a silly thing to say about a toy story movie but it is a fact there have and four films are hugely successful. The characters are beloved ingrained in popular culture. And I genuinely think toy story. Four is very very very good animated film and might might mark the end of a certain period of Pixar because not just the machinations that have happened over the years with Disney but obviously all of the sort of incredibly fraught stuff. That's happened with John. LASSETER over the years in the development stage for these movies. It's just if you look at the Pixar movies that are coming There are a lot of new properties and there are a lot of new voices that are getting to make those movies toy story. Four is old school tried and true early. Two Thousand Steve Jobs Era Pixar. That's where it comes from and and I think they're going to recognize that we could be wrong. We're GONNA find out we're both going to a story for best documentary feature the nominees. Are American factory. The Cave you've the edge of democracy foursome and honey land. What did you choose? I chose American factory as that. I'm not feeling confident. I'm not either but I wanted to die on this hill because I love this film. We gave this film best picture we really did Alternate Oscars about that this morning and I was so happy. What a lovely little title space? That was where we just got to talk about the things we liked terrifically. Well made movie. I think All of the movies in this category are are well-made. I shouldn't be surprised by how overwhelmingly serious every film is in this category every year and how issues oriented a lot of these films are it's been interesting to see. I thought when the nominations were announced honeywood play spoiler spoiler the fact that it has representation in this category and also in the next category. We're GONNA talk about. It's just unusual. That's never happened before. And so that shows a lot of support for that movie. I thought that would play spoiler over the last couple of months. Foam seems to be gaining steam for some just one at the Baptist over the weekend. We'll have to wait and see my my choices also American factory. This is part of what I mean here about saying. This was an easy choice to make because it seems like a logical choice. It's an American story. Also International Scott Got Barack Obama's thumbprint on it which I think is key weirdly meaningful. You know we. We never talked about Kobe. Bryant's passing on the show and I don't think there's a ton of reason to but obviously. Kobe was an Oscar winner. And you know some people love his film but it was a lot easier to understand his film in the purposes of his film that won best animated short. I think it's called your basketball because this was connected to Kobe. Bryant and I think people will actually look at American factory and think of Barack Obama and correlate in the same way like that is how this business works in many ways. So I'm going American factory if you told me Any of these films were GonNa win. I genuinely would not be suppressed. Don't don't bet on this category advice this category also just the nominations itself were a bit of surprise is because Apollo eleven which had been so dominant at so many awards coming up to the nominations is not included. One Nation was also in the mix and is not included so it could go a lot of different ways and I guess my strategy throughout is has been to play it safe to go with the most obvious choice and that's important because it's been like a pretty obvious yes award season thus far but we could easily be wrong. The Oscars always has a couple of surprises as it always does now. I would prefer if those surprises happened in some of the later categories and then some of the earlier categories for the sake of national entry but in all likelihood this year they're going to come in categories like this let's go to best international feature a category will not have any surprises whatsoever. The five nominees are Corpus. Christi Honey Land Les Miserables Painting Glory Parasite Yes parasite will win this award. Award parasite is a winner. This is the not the last time. We'll talk about parasite on this podcast. We can continue to go forward great visual effects. This is the category that I like to call. Sean doesn't know anything I think I get this wrong every year. That's because you always pick marvel movies and they've never WANNA love moral. Yeah congratulations not not Without some questioning questions some of their choices and frankly their visual effects are sometimes not. I've never good
Hello, I'm scared of... poetry! Mia & Lily
"Welcome back to the vintage podcast. It's been a minute now. I had a plan in in mind for this podcast. I have two guests me in the studio today. We've got me. I am economy.

We'll be bringing into vintage bookworm from the team one who is scared of a certain topic or genre nephew signatory. One Who is willing to have their brain brain picked We're going to be unpacking some of the best writing before you is in the hopes that afterwards you want to give it to try to so lily. Can you tell the origin story of this podcast. Thus tell me how I got this I did Lordy okay. Well it was late and I decided that I was actually going to go home but I I was I think. What am I going to read on my commute home which is something that I enjoyed doing? Often I will pick up a little booklet from around the office. And it's a serious question when you're living under while I'm stuck with this book for at least an hour exactly exactly and I've been sort of thinking about what to try next ext and it just sort of came out really the I saw. The mayor was also still there and I knew that meal was something of an expert. I think think on poetry and I'm going to find out even more so And so I suppose The title comes from just what I said to her when I was thinking about what to read that evening and I just said to hello. I'm scared of poetry. Would you recommend and Lena overheard this. And her brain being what it is decided he was giving recommending. Yes you won't feel so good about it and I thought that thing of just like everybody has something where they feel like Colette intimidated. Especially I think we've had so many generations of classics. Now there's really you feel it back and you feel like you need to know everything about a genre over and author or the origin story of a sudden could've tried it's just it's it's too much law so yeah MEA involvement is with poetry. Ah Vintage and what you do yes I am. I am basically the poetry specialist advantage within the publicity team That basically means the I welcome all of the poetry collections that we publish Making sure that they secure review coverage organizing events in tools and generally just getting to hang out with a low of really cool contemporary contemporary poets. As I love it I mean. Can you tell me how you go into poetry. What was your first in? What made you want specialist is not well? I've really liked poetry Ever since I was little and I think ahead a bit of a a slightly unique upbringing in the I was Read Poetry As a child oiled not like my parents went like reading out the wasteland in the last the Senate blocking poem. Isn't there like your parents. I really thought queue up which every poet listening to this now is GonNa roll their eyes. It'd be are you much but yeah I was kind of introduced to poetry at a young age and not necessarily like you know really big poems but just just things like Spike Milligan's kind of nonsense poetry which really is just like an experiment with sound so never felt like pundits. I have one particular Minaj. Enjoyed the sound of them listening to them and said something that kind of followed me through my education. I always really enjoyed reading poetry then when I went to university especially schools in modern poetry which badly really scratched the surface among poetry. But you know it was a great introduction And I did a few bit surrealist poetry so that's kind of how that had come about and then basically When I was the assistant advantage the publicity assistant we have this amazing collection? Come in on. Submission is called night sky with exit wounds by a Russian long and I'd heard about what's and then I read it and it just blew me away and I basically said to Joe he was on publicity director. Please please please please. Can I help you Because because he was getting married at kind of turned out that what a little bit better the I got to do the campaign but so yeah Not went quite well and then I think it kind of gave the publicity. Let's talk about of trust with me with poetry and that kind of said look you clearly really enjoy this. You clearly know more about it than perhaps some of the rest of US would g. Let's take this forward as the project. Now say yes please. That's what I was ugly. This is my destiny. I would take your lily. You have a an origin story purchased bit more well similar to mine. And then you're live with scattered because I've kind of done like an English English undergrad. I'm English masters and I still look a purchase. I'm like do I understand this getting I'm supposed to get from. This is this is this. What does this mean goodell bodily club towel? Tell us how how you how you interactions with poetry and how you feel about it. I mean I was just sort of vigorously grisly nodding my head then that would have come across on a podcast format but yeah I mean like very similar I think theoretically I did study poetry As part of my English literature studying stuff but it was never modern it was always done or it was mov Allah. Whatever Shakespeare Shakespeare exactly? Oh Yeah I get it but I it was it was just it. Felt like a completely different thing. Somehow I suppose yeah I feel like it was a semi part of my education but it was always kind of cannon poems and it was always thinking about how the poet had played with artifice or played with form and it was very easy to somehow distance yourself as a kind of reader or listener from the poet. It was always like the speaker. AK- the voice or the character in the poem and something that I find really scary. I think about modern poetry in particular and I'm probably using modern in poetry as a term completely wrong. Forgive me because I guess something that I find scary about. Ah a thing is that it's more difficult somehow to kind of separate the poet from the poems and so it just adds this kind of level of pressure somehow to like if the poet is bearing their soul in the room. They're live and they're telling you you know. This is my deepest darkest fear or hope or love and here are the most like amazing words but I can think to try and say it in and then you just just read it in your life now made just doesn't do anything for me that something. So sort of deeply cringe-worthy an awful and I just I feel very guilty about that and I can't tell whether it's the I have no taste and the which is very likely whether it's the you know the poem. Oh I'm just sort of going over my head somehow or whether I am just too emotionally frigid in a poem. West is just being like this is something that really hurts me or something and I know this. Thanks like the stakes. A quite high on the level of autobiography is like it feels like it. Should you respond to as a reader or sympathetic human and like confusing relations. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think so and I think with say a novel I think because it's because the poetry as a full is so minute on intense and that's kind of the point you know it's like squash saturated that's a really bad analogy but you know it's it's it's so tiny and and condensed and intense is that where a saying a novel you can kind of get onboard with some bits and not with this and it just feels less high high stakes less personnel somehow whereas if a poem doesn't do what it seems to be trying to do it just feels like well that's gone then the husband I've been successful. I feel like it's it's either like a yes or no in a way that novels maybe don't feel like it's like stand up or something a stand up comedian saying a gag if you don't laugh dot didn't
Europe Is Burning U.S. Wood As Climate-Friendly Fuel, But Green Groups Protest
"World leaders are gathering at a U. N. climate summit in Madrid this week to talk about how to reduce greenhouse emissions in the search for alternatives to fossil fuel. Some some countries have now turned to one of the oldest energy sources around would some are importing from the United States calling it clean and renewable but some environmentalists. Say this makes no oh sense. NPR's Dan Charles has the story on a soggy field in eastern North Carolina. Jason Too and his crew loggers cutting trees threes and sorting the logs into piles depending on their size. And what kind of would they are poplar. Sweet Gum Elm right there. Some piles will go into plywood. Some will become puffy absorbent fiber in baby diapers and then there's the least valuable pile the small limbs tops of hardwood trees. It's basically a trash. Should we would've normally hauled that back out in the woods and just left it. But now there's a new market for that Wood Pellet Mills they've expanded across the southeast over the past decade. They'll take this would crush it and pressed into little pellets. Ready for burning fuel the landowners. Getting some by we're getting some production is just an all around good deal do most of these pellets. Millions of tons each year. We'll get shipped to Europe where burned in power plants because some European governments are offering financial subsidies cities to burn these pellets. Instead of say coal it's supposed to help fight climate change. Here's Seth Ginther. Executive Director of the industry group that represents Wood Pellett companies. The carbon benefits are tremendous burning. Would also biomass does release lots of carbon dioxide the greenhouse gas. But the idea behind had the subsidies is you can let farce grow back. And as they do they'll recapture the carbon dioxide from the air and stored in their branches and roots again so it's considered renewable lable just like wind or solar the European Union literally just pass something known as the Renewable Energy Directive to and biomass sustainable biomass ass was unequivocally included as part of what can meet renewable energy goals but environmental groups are challenging that decision in court. They say the idea that large scale. wood-burning is carbon neutral is based on bad math and to explain exactly why Adam collect from the environmental group Dogwood Alliance takes me to another patch of land North Carolina near the town of Williamson. I know it doesn't look like much but we're gonNA take a walk. It's covered with bushes and little trees as maybe ten feet tall. In the south. We call it a briar patch but yet on paper this is a forest for years ago really was a forest with big trees rees then it was locked some of it went to make wood pellets. So let's count the carbon emissions accurately. Colette says when the big trees were cut they stopped opt capturing carbon dioxide from the air that benefit was lost at least temporarily and some of the carbon they'd previously stored was released into the air when the wood pellets were burned and as tree roots decomposed. But you won't see any of that in the official calculations of greenhouse emissions. He says none of it's ever been counted in any of our like emissions counting in the US or in Europe that's because the forest eventually will grow back and recapture that lost carbon but it could take a century for that to happen now. Seth Ginther from the US Industrial Pellet Association says his industry should not be blamed for those carbon emissions because wood pellets are not the reason forests wrists are cleared. These are lands that are being harvested for Sawed Timber for housing for paper and for other things what we're taking is is the the byproduct of that in facto independent forestry experts. Say That's not completely true. Their data shows that the wood pellet industry is competing for some of the same. Would that might go for making paper or diapers and it's pushing up prices for that. Would Adam Collette from Dogwood. Alliance thinks it's persuading some small landowners to harvest their trees. You have have more knocks on those doors. More telephone calls saying hey I'll give you X.. Number of dollars for your trees. What Colette wants is for officials to knock on those doors with a different different message encouraging landowners to maintain forests expand them? Our forests are young. They're degraded and what that means. Is that the potential Henschel to suck carbon out of the atmosphere of force in the U._S.. South is enormous. Those forests are some of the best climate solutions. We have he says if they keep growing Dan. Charles N._p._R.

"Guess. Spoiler. The point is the reason we out for long, and yes, the people she's winning awards. Now, I think people know what the story is a little bit. But the similarities with this story of extraordinary for these two films becoming out at the same time because spoil collect a little bit more popular know, the misapply to claim the male rights are getting all the credit for what the wife who's the real kind of brains behind the operation has been cheating. I thought that power that was really striking almost bizarre. These. I thought that as well. I love that film was amazing. And also and Dominic west scale Johnson prices role is very different throughout exactly I mean, he he's he's not awful. But he turns out is. It's a really interesting character journey that he goes on because there is something very genuine lice about him. But he is very susceptible to flattery, and as he becomes more of a celebrity figure UC, the crack showing says great love this film. It is the wife as recommended by Anna Smith, Tim you wanted to the music from Colette Thomas at Addis at is very well known opera composer who makes his first foray into film scoring with this with this film and already enjoyed his school has a little variety to it. There's some sort of real really plush convergence stuff when she's running very French music. But then there's some really quiet thoughtful pastors in as well, he his are very interesting figure, and he's clearly approached it to write a period specific school his chosen instruments that were being used in French subtle music at the time, they're all scenes where you see performance going on. And he's contributed to the orchestration of that. He's borrowed from some of those composers from the turn of the century. But he's also decided to school which kind of brings you up to the very edge of the modernist era for music. So when you enter these contemplative pastures in the school, which particular. He liked nudging the vanguard little bit. Which is exactly what collapsed doings, a very intelligent piece of music. Thanks stuns. Quite well in sign a little clip off Thomas addresses for Colette, this is called vows to so. Oh. Yeah. There's something very romantic through sandstone Bassett right up to priante things. It's a real. Yeah. It was I was thinking. Yeah. And also use in this kind of very it's like watching time sort of like, a Renoir or something is detail. There's impressionism in. There's a lot of sits. Holy kind of the beginning. Anyway care nightly running school girlishly three beautiful, flower meadows. And then it kinda gets quite real than the school changes as it should receive. It was a consulting to notice in the movie matches some of the kind of visual ornaments Asian in the film. The a where we walk through a park, and is very nicely styled like Sarah's Sunday in the park with George without kind of flashing neon lights out. Yeah. That's what it's doing. It.

"Amazing. Oh, gosh. Yes. I say don't absolately brilliant. But it felt slightly against the ideals of the film that there was so much of him in it to be about. I know it's meant to be about him overpowering her in many ways. Yes. Sticking up the whole screen. Yeah. He's he's. Yeah. Yeah. And he always seems tables in every fill now, which I enjoy very happy to see the holy loving that we won't have the cinema wasn't. He wasn't. He create the scene. When does this great thing? And it's an old is the one kind of seemingly uncomplicated out of love to his wife or rather the character of clothing and Holly said, yes, they seemed like the film was filmed episodes weekly. And by that point, they really get will getting on with each other. She is. Mysterious like, a sweet she wants you. By those. Who is a bit of a. Paris had a bit of that too. It didn't it. I think it's important as well Willie is presented as quite shaded character. Obviously, he's a monster in some ways. But he don't west fines seem of sympathy and him. He's quite side quite tragic figure by the end. And I think if you didn't like volume to his Chom and his kind of Vesti you and understand she ever saw him, which is a big problem. I mean, it reminds me of the problem with cures role in Karenina, which is that she's stuck with Aaron Taylor Johnson. You're like why are you going off with this twit because because that role was so badly Renan cost. An hey, I think this is real dimension to the to the husband even when he's at his worst. There's something desperate quite tragic about him. So I thought he really came good with that. And as far as Kira guys. I like her in a lot, and I like how she's playing a bit with her tomboy style. Which is always had from the very beginning of. The whole plot where all they lesbians she's kind of playing with that. And she's matured into a way to play with that with with the character who's kind of much more mature. And I I think she's kind of in control there. And I really enjoyed watching the stuff where she goes treads the boards. Does this kind of vampish performance is ready fun as well? I think it isn't it strange seeing and acted. It's always that funny thing of seeing an actor playing role whether the person in the row, it goes off, and does something unfamiliar like acting trying to see them act worse. But as an actor. That one of those mirror images for you. Keep on saying the thing down the line. I know you interview dominant west him, I read an interview recently which had carry night. Because isn't it saying is the thing about Haley's, the even when he's supposed to be addicted is something kind of sexy and kind of good about his characters. I suppose is that is that an element of watch ability. I think you feed him for the telegraph. Yeah. That's right. And he admitted that these days he may just gets to play these assholes. He put it with the exception of limits. Roper on TV that's been the great hero of worldly ship. I think early on his career. He was the guy who was the party animal in the first real film in Chicago and twenty eight days, and you had to kind of get rid of him in the way for the film's carry on. And now, I'm really pleased to this role because I feel as though it could he's lived on someone else's wouldn't necessarily be the first person you'd think to put in this Paul he actually does really grunge opener. And he he really just helps the film reach sort of level of nuance of latte. Otherwise, it could have been very point. Scoring the kind of feminism in a way that might have been a little bit kinda cheap. And I think he rented it richer and a bit more real and on that note about the there is a lot of toilet west in the film, considering it's cooled Colette. It's about the character. And about the women that was his about about the writer, the real power behind the throne kind of thing and literally relationship, it's a funny one, isn't it you kind of need to see so that marriage in their relationship in his selfishness. And then her kind of her selflessness. But then her I don't know how do you measure that in terms of screen time? Ten menu. Biceps ROY that we do needs to have gray area in their relationship into understand that it's very complex. He's not necessarily just the bad guy. And you know, the boo hiss puns Ovilla. And I think that's really important. I just think that was probably a few scenes more on him than we needed because I still felt that we slightly rushing through elements of collects life, and in particular, her relationship with Missy played by Denise Gough who is gender non conforming character. And I'm a big one for months, suddenly these two seem to be in a relationship, and I don't know even know how they felt free. I didn't really see two-goal. Yes. Yes. Or whatever you want to call MRIs character. Yes. Was interesting. I wonder whether that was also a pronoun of time whether that was a pronoun that's been put on it by the writers voicing. I think she will. She will he used by Tim says, but also referred to herself as on Coolmax, all Missy depending and dress in various different ways. So really interesting. I mean, I interviewed to time out and she said there was no way of knowing whether she was at the forefront of the Butch lesbian movement or the front of the trans movement. Because obviously those words we're not bandied around then. But it's interesting they've always gone into great deal of trouble to try to get his accurate possible. And to be a sense of possible to contemporary interpretations of and today's was saying that she spoke to people experts about signing contemporary sexual identities historical figures, and they get some trouble forecasting women in that role, and all that's really interesting. But at the same time I wanted to see more of that relationship. I felt too. Yes. Sorry. Too much. John West is. Interesting at she because she was only allowed to be that person because she was of high society and could get away with it because she was kind of she was she was cooled eccentric were than being sort of challenging because wasn't she descended from Josephine in Russia. So she was allowed to kind of do whatever she wanted kind of thing something about that. Tonight, entitlement. She's very open about I think she probably would arrested for wearing trials otherwise had. She not being say money didn't title. Yeah. And maybe one of the shocking scenes is when Collette turns up to visit witty living living apart. She's reliving with Missy. And then she turns up in a suit. And it's great. You know? I mean, kind of Diane Keaton hall tat, right? Really great. And that seems that was kind of the most shocking scene where you see down the street. The and you think there's nothing wrong until she has to confront her husband. There was some nice moments in this which don't seem over egged. Maybe it's the musical school. Maybe it's the way which is directed and written. But it doesn't seem like, it's hammering home. It's points if indeed it's trying to make any is that fair. Maybe it's just as I say, the the general vibe of the film thing that's fair. I think it wants to convey a kind of accurate flavor of her life as it was being lived through those years without forcing too many points in so many boy picks really push things. Too much American scores. Good example, inventing holdings that remote. He didn't happen something like the imitation games. Twisting the story away from the uncomfortable areas because it wants to achieve certain. Awards e prestige arc to and I really valued the film the ways in which this phone didn't do that. And if it did cause it to be a bit little bit flatter as drama and kind of willing to take the trade because I think it's less cheap. So I've I I would also have liked to have seen more than east coffee agree. I think that role was interesting, and we only got us sort of almost like trailer moments of character could have been within the phone interesting. They've caused other trends actors in round in the movie in different roles, but just not in that one. And again, you know, this woman wouldn't couldn't possibly have identified as trans because the time didn't exist who would you actually correctly cost in that road. It's hard to see I think. Yeah. I wonder if it's easy doing films that are about a historical an historical film based on the literary characters based that character on her in life. There's all sorts of layers of interest, and meaning to it the gender fluidity in sexual fluidity thing is it may be easier to set it in a historical context. And maybe do. Film about it. Now that you can it is easy it before filmmakers have defined their own language about what is now to be able to set it in the past and not get away with it. But get used to the terms and the feeling of making a film about this. Although this is also about authorship female other things is really complex question. I think there are pros and minuses to filming it in the past into say that kind of story in the post it's very easy to sort of start using our contemporary judgment on the past and perhaps saying in the past you'll sending setting yourself up for that though as well as dodging bullets. I mean, you can't really win at the moment with these kind of transa- Gyantse, I think it is filmmakers Israeli difficult. You know, Denise go for saying. Well, surely, I should be able to pay something that I'm not otherwise, I'm just gonna play an Irish woman for the rest of my life, and there aren't many roles for that. So where where do the line, and it is tricky, but I understood they did very open causing process to lots of translates anxious full. That. Okay. So this was a film director by wash Westmoreland I'm relatively. I'm familiar with him. Tim, you mentioned it was originally going to be a code directed piece. So he and his husband and rushing writing partner Richard plot. So a kind of leading lights in the the quiz kind of new quiz and more in the nineties, and they made it number of films then from could concern Yere, which came out in two thousand four ish. And then they had a real success with still Alice, which was the final film that richer closer was able to make for DEVE less and GM more, of course, one Housego playing in fact carats with related disorder because the, you know, the kind of oblivion that she's suffering in that film is is near logically related. So there was a kind of whiz and going on in that production. I think and in fact, she won her Oscar, you know, weeks before Richard died. He was able to see it from his hospital bed. This is wash is first solar project since then. And certainly it's given him a kind of budgetary boost in order to get it made. An try these stores. So I'm please come see him going ahead on his own his another film coming up. I think he's making Japan the next one. Okay. Thank you very much. We're going to culture Tate on Colette by the age of two bits of further reading, and you will you mentioned the wife in relation to this. I can definitely see why. But took us through this one. If you say the wife, Glenn Close Swiss equals won a Golden Globe form, it's in the wife. It's the story of sensory Jonathan Pryce who is about to collect a Nobel prize for his writing many decades worth of authorship and Glenn Close plays the wife he goes to collect it with him. And it follows them over a few days of kind of increasingly agonizing interactions as he gets a great deal of isolation. And we del back into their pulse with flashbacks actually starring daughter where we discover perhaps the element to which she infamous his career supported his career, and it was really without giving too much about how women often sacrificed a great deal for their husbands. And in particular, women like this who had. Great to own autism talent. But who decided to take a backseat perhaps because economic reasons or other Patriarca reasons dictated that they were the caregivers and the home givers are really enjoyed this movie wasn't university loved then think of it was a great one. And as you say, it's an interesting one is Jonathan Pryce a sort of he's kind of muscular sixties, mayo writer, I mean, he's dyke kind of character, right? Who gets his comeuppance at the Nobel prize for literature ceremony and the trip that surrounds that the trip to Sweden, which is very kind of well-mannered, and yes, yes, sir. Three bags full, sir. Other this new amazing thing Glenn classes incredible in it and kind of how she's actually seen. But I almost anything for Young's. And then suddenly coming back and doing this amazing. She's always fantastic. I think this could be her big big moment as she said of the Golden Globes shooting at forty five years. She gave a great speech, which I think is setting her up for BAFTA little skits, potentially said of talking about exactly what we were just saying the themes. The movie and reflecting on them. And how women often take it back seat, which is always very timely, and she is amazing. You just see every flicker emotion going through her eyes. And it's based on over wishes kinda rated by her character. But actually, they dispense with the nation in the film, which I think is a small move because she's such an expressive performer, and you see so much going through her face just tiny little minute twitches. Whether it's a faction or jealousy or pride or bitter-sweet resentment. The so much going on the mazing. Those one moment that really stuck out for me when they arrive in Stockholm, isn't it for the Nobel prize and Johnson. Introducing her around and says, this is my wife. She doesn't right and the communist wrestling lens classes face which hardly moves, but the temperature in somehow just drops two thousand degrees, and the point being that she has written everything I was really struck. When I saw that's kind of a sport. I guess.

"That was weird. Like, I did nothing wrong. But at the same time, I want people to kind of like trying to think. Trying to think outside this being very graciously. Like, oh, go on the drag me. I was like all right. Yeah. Yeah. She's like I'm glad to be part of a conversation. It's like, no they're saying that you were in the wrong. Yes. And they also think that I just wanted to kind of set the scene of the actress specifically using part of the reason why this is K as to transact is were playing since people. Let's talk about those two transactions. So we mentioned earlier that there's a scene where Colette is talking to a man and woman and Willie is like please come away from this situation. Now, you'll flood him with this man that is the only say most characters, Ian. I'm those all the true. Yes. And those characters are played by a trans man. And a transplant I guess, they get lines. I don't remember them really Vijay get lines, but fairly inconsequential. They do have names. I didn't follow lake finding him out for this because that would imply that their characters and the characters I think it is like kinda cool. But it's more fun fact. This kind of cool thing happened as opposed to something that you get to be really proud about is an anti with the director of asset. And he was saying like, yeah, I cost transact as insists roles and basically saying you're having spoken trans actors knowing that this is the thing transact those want to happen. I thought why not in this film? And it was very weird to read that when it was like, but trans actors playing trans roles is also a thing trans actors wanted to happen. You had a trans character. And not just kind of wasn't a knowledged at all in that conversation. Yeah. And when he saw re between the lions of lake tanning to us with people from this. It becomes clear that he knew these actors because he on dishes them full the trans character, and then all sided not put them in that role. That was kind of I was curious as to whether you knew whether that was part of the process because I kind of suspected at my knee. And it's also just I mean. Sure that is a good sentiment. The sentiment of wanting to cost transacted insys roles. But the fact is that Missy from to be probably the third largest character in the film. Yeah. Like laying well. Obviously. Yes. But certainly a major role. Film as compared to a same as compared to two characters you for once in fact that especially that those are the two transacted like, maybe, you know, at least has been true differences. So I didn't actually find it being said definitively anywhere that the trans man who has called j graph. Haven't read for that part. But like it was that like all wash looked for a bunch of different transgender actors because there was a transgender pod. So like, it seems like he would've read for that role. And then they decided to this woman, interestingly the transplant also read for the pot of this trans male character. I was gonna ask about that. When you said they both read for the role. I was like, okay. Yeah. So I'll read you the quote from the actress her name's Rebecca route. She said, it'd be interesting if you had a transplant playing trans man, it's sort of going backwards applying against my tie. But why not if you have a cease person playing trans and a transplant and playing see Wycombe, you have a trans woman playing a trans man. Unlike shore. If a this woman playing trends, man, what we deal with too much than we miss hope deal with the transplant Clinton transparent, but I lost transmit. Yeah. I feel like what is money in the waters? Here had this point for clearly..

"But also, I guess you could make the argument that it's nodding huge pot of moving and dolls kind of ultimately feedback into like her relationship with Willie. But to counter that again, we haven't done an episode on Colette. I don't know a lot about Colette. I don't know what female Lois she had that they could have built an off on. Yeah. I maybe fifty maybe not I think later in life so near the with film. She leaves Willie. Yeah. I think later in life. She did have more female lovers, Oregon. But the film ends before that happened revoking human rhapsody again. Relationship with Christ pain Bica K. What are you? Sure. That. That's true. Joyce Athene Baker. Okay, listening beg. It's talks about them like meeting. I can't remember exactly what she said. I don't think she was like we had sex. But she was like we used to meet. And basically she said the days of Sierra, which is me. Oh, what what? Why is it mean Baker free to this movie? Because this would later. I mean, they decide when the movie ends. Yeah. Yeah. I think the reason the movie ends when it does because the movie is about Coletta Willie. Yeah. Okay. That's true. Unlike it ends with off of Colette leading William going off on her own and with Missy. The hitter. Also because it's largely about the clothing books, and the movie ends I believe with her getting the rights back to the yet. Yeah. And I guess that's also tied up with William with a frightening herself from Willie because he has the right? It's about tastings. But yeah. So we've mentioned missing. Yes. Let's discuss this for an hour on what he also, sir. I didn't know that there was trans content in this movie before I went to see it. Did you guys know this was this like advertise? I knew nothing about this before I went to that's true. Didn't go to see I've heard of MRI before because I looked up Coletta bit when I was third and his name like who is this woman that Joyce being but you had a relationship with and even from like a like briefly rating about Colette and how relationship with Missy. I didn't come across mentions that Missy was trans. Yes are missing TRAN if he's trying. Yeah. Like, we're just gonna say that. And even in this movie presented as a trans man yet. Like there is a saying in which Colette is speaking about mec- Colette us using mph nouns and Williams using female pronouns on collect like no he might. Okay. That's that's pretty important is pretty clear, I don't serve as like a few times. Is he talks about is like life experiences in a way that is them trying to basically be like, I am trans. But in like. The only time you like. Speak. Yeah. We're in talks about him. Like oh. And then I put on my brother's school uniform and everything fell into place, and it just felt right tonight went off. And I lived my life this way. And it was like. Yeah. All right. That's like all time a translate. Yeah. Yeah. This is a trans character. They understanding this person as a transgender man guests who plays him is it a Cecil scholar Hansen. I'm just kidding. I was always like, no she wasn't in it cost list. And then I realized you joking. So her name is Denise call. She is assist woman. We don't really need to talk about why that's inappropriate because transplant will have made very clear all levels on this. And since people just don't care anyway, I feel like most about listeners are aware enough of year the arguments surrounding that. Yeah. But if you say thing about this is that they all trans actors in this movie before move onto the transact is who are in this movie. I just wanted to read a quote, Denise Gough had to say about playing this character. Oh goody. Yes, sir. She said that she's not gonna pull it is for these. And then said, quote, I was reassured that the costing process had been very very open. And I was also reassured by the fact that for the first time in history wash has cost to transact is insist rolls, and I didn't incredible amount of research. I think it's very important for me. Not to apologize for my work. I went to Savell myself like that. But if it means that people want to use it as a catalyst for compensation, then fantastic. I'm always happy to be a part of fat..

"I guess what are your thoughts Alice? Do you think that that's just like a fine? Underlying observation of we empower dynamics in the fantasize nation of young women by old men, or do you think that that's like a weird thing that should have been dealt with more on not? I mean, I guess the reason it's there is because of the popularity of chlordane at a school on the fact that it did create this kind of fashion among young women of. You know, dressing in like the school, they'll dress size for the mentioned. But you are. I don't think the film does anything with it. I guess it further demonize Willie. I like hip potentially. Or does it his relationship with that? Like, quite ongo. I mean, she's twenty three and like the moving makes her say her age because otherwise everyone would been like, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. But with this, you know, quite young looking woman who his attracted to at least in part because she looks Yang. It's it's weird. But laying Coletta's kinda like Willie. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, maybe it's just in that because they felt like with the fashion of Claudine and everyone being so caught up in a book, which is about the sex life of school go they had to kind of. Mike some comment about the power dynamics are implied within that. But I guess the other thing that does returning to Willie's young girlfriend, again is it makes it clear how much Colette has changed because she was that girl. The movie, and she isn't by this point. Yeah. I was about to say that that fanatic through lime seemed apparent just how you were describing the same. Yeah. Oh that aspect of the film. Yeah. Which like fine. I guess, but it does come expensive at Skoko immature. Yeah. There are sort of two. I guess kind of like Cleo seems all progressions of scenes in the latter case where it's clear that Colette is into women where in one she's out of hardy, and there's a man in his wife or just a man and a woman there and Coletta's having a grand old time talking to them and really walks up and thinks she's flooded with the man and his will leaving right now going harm and in the carriage on the way Herm. She's like what if I told you it was woman, I was interested in the man, and he's like old out to different Matto. I'm quite intrigued by this actually kinda deal, which I you know, like, I feel is. What Willie would be like, I think it is addressed at a later point where she's like wise at different yet. And is a him says in her bisexuality on the film. He's aware is. Yes, that's nice. It is. And then this a series of scenes when she starts having affair with this American woman, and like they made any flow and you'll maybe you've seen screen capsule gifts going around being leg. When you look at me like that. It's like you're taking all of my clothes that line by says apologised home law not anymore. Oh my God. The female presented nipples. And this basically like a montage of sex scenes where she's having sex with this woman, and then Willie's having sex with this woman, and then like they stop having sex with the woman. Was nowhere. I was expecting that set to go. But like. So Mike very much clearly bisexual not like alluded to Lanc Colette is bisexual ends movie, which you know, I was like maybe that might happen movies a bad. So that was good..

"This whole tagline that gets repeated of people saying I'm the real dean it gets introduced when they're making a play of it. And this woman marches in kind of says like I'm going to be a lead actress, I'm the real clothing kind of deal and then later on she says like like, she's specifically rebuts the idea that. He's responsible for them existence. You kind of says like this came from me mitalent. I'm the real cool quoting, and yeah, I was like, okay, moving okay. Oh, yeah. I think about one of the major themes of the movie is hurting ownership of her work. Yeah. Yeah. Coop ours. Ours intrigued to him how that played out kind of want to briefly touch on the whole school go finish that just kind of underlying in this movie. Yeah. Just going all is yet. So the thing that made me very uncomfortable in the same where he locks her in the room is kind of drags her upstairs and his kind of saying like, oh when you were a school go, and you did something wrong. What would your headmaster do would he make you write lines? Would he put you over his knee? And she says, yes. And he goes well, and they looks around the room. And I was so sure that he was about to dislike spank her nor nor nor nor nor nor and then it kind of almost like puts you in a position of being relieved that she's just being walked in the room, which I think is of fine criticism of seen it doesn't treat it as fine. But it does make you relief that that's not happening. And then that gator highly goes way, and then those goals were sort of school, go outfit because codeine becomes really popular and codeine is a school. Go for reference like it's about Colette schooldays fictionalized through Claudine. Yep. And like there's a scene where will kindly? Gives her popularized dress that's based on the school go dress to wear like implicitly for them to go to bed and like this. I don't think that this is really that. Don't really have like a message about this in the movie or anything like that. But like, oh, God it was uncomfortable. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And because he also has a relationship. Oh, yeah. Young girl about. Yeah. But yeah, like this go comes to the house. I guess to kind of get him to sign the pool. Can she's wearing that little school? Go look and. She hits on him on Willie. And he's like how old are you? And to like twenty three. But like, I know I look young girl also thing like, okay as she Dr. She looks really well. I mean like when cleven initially gets with him like he's significantly. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And she's twenty I believe I think she's supposed to be nineteen the vice out of the film from memory. She is portrayed in that relationship where she does marry him quite early in the film that she is quite young. She's betrayed us having agency in that relationship from the beginning. I don't alright that's quite true at the beginning and then not anymore. So will they comes to visit Colette have family in the countryside because he's quoting Colette. Basically every time I said Coletta, Mike because. So like, they have this is kind of like proprio T, and then he leaves and she is like two parents like me like golfer woke now, and then they kinda like meat often from secret place, and they can like make out or whatever. So it's like she's like not just kind of passively being courted. She's like going out and meeting him and so forth, and she actively wants this. But then when we get to Paris, she is to this naive young country, girl, and she really can't keep up with his social circle and wall with him, and she doesn't have any real power to aid or anything a Unger perk person pursuing an older person. Maybe being a little bit problematic until powered I swear we heard that before. If you'd like to listen to our episode encomium. Popey interactions. I nor like as I said, that's only a theme. Yeah.

"And I was curious to see how that will portray that relationship in a way where boys those aspects of felt real unlikely could coexist in the one person, and I think they did that well of making it feel real but Colette was attracted to Willie. But at the same time, there are a lot of negative aspects of their relationship, and she ultimately leaves that relationship. Yeah. I did read several reviews of the stone which. Largely seem to praise donate west performance quite a bit specifically price that aspect of it where he comes across as simple tiny Asli charismatic and having sung good aspects. But also having a lot of negative characteristics. That ultimately hold Colette back in the long-term. Yeah. At event one review in the tub. I didn't feel that Willie was Vilnai's d- often. They felt that he was treated too sympathetically. But I do think they balanced it pretty well. I think it's balanced by do think that like so much time has been his character in film win like you could. Explode on a car. Dismal mohali. Yeah. That was it's not really time wasted. But it is kind of like, you know, the character you spend a lot of time on Mars to Taiwan is the abusive husband. Yeah. That was my major takeaway from the film other than like, I enjoyed it. Unlike other the my general positive yet that was a good movie was that it was a movie about Colette Willie's relationship. That was the main thing that the movie was about I feel and that was a bit disappointing to me in going to watch a queer film that the main related to that it was about was her relationship with her abusive husband. Could I ask in relation to that? Because having read a few reviews one saying that comes on pretty consistently way, he locks her in a room to force her to ride and yet yet. So she refuses to ride the seconds clothing book, lectures, the like months by whatever any drags upstairs milk. So in a room and says like lemme know a new goal this long of and she does ride full context. The quoting goes at this point where published under his name. Also for further context. I guess this happened in real life to the row Khalip. Yeah. And. The reviews were very split on the present thought saying as to. And I think, you know, getting into that idea of whether or not. Willie's. Character was demonized knol. As to Hal Vilnai's. He was in that scene in a now, let's aim was prevented. So I was just interested seaweed is all about I think in the moment that it happens like she's very angry upset in the moment that happens, but it's not presented as like a particularly awful action. But then later in the film, she references back to it and says, you know, that it was very bad. And that she wouldn't stand for it now. And I think that that actually does display a character development pretty well that at the time, but she doesn't like it. But she doesn't realize how much she can stand up to it. I don't agree. Your that legged spent a long time of being like like historically upset beating on the door. I mean. I don't really see how that's not seeing that. It's a bad thing. Like, it's not like it shows her coming out. And then being like, oh, I'm over it. Now, he's your pages or anything like we don't really see. Yeah. I guess that's true. I guess I guess I was more thinking it's it's only much later in the film that we see her really stand up to Willie chill. But I don't think like a woman in an abusive relationship. Not standing up himself means that it's portrayed is fine. He's doing what he's doing. Yeah. Yeah. I I think the reviews are basically saying that because of the success of the clothing books that follows on from that scene. So I was actually really worried at that point that the film was gonna kind of deliberately a more likely implicitly imply that like the clothing books were ultimately brought about because we did all of this stuff until it happened productive in the end. But I think the film actually later on the whole point of it becomes undermining in ho taking ownership over the books..

"And yeah, I think that that's again, illustrative of the movies propensity to tell I'm not sure that we are told by several characters that vita is a good influence on the dean is mental health. But. Aside from the fact that she seems loudly happiest sometimes those don't really showing that I think in terms of the way that actually impacts on her day to day life. I think it also just kind of comes dangerously close to being like, oh like Virginia's really like I'm comfortable with sexual things. And then like a Vitas a good influence. She comes along and now Virginia can have sex, and it's this kind of thing plank. It doesn't really explore the genius relationship to sex and not for that not to seem like, oh, you're fix now because you wanna have sex. Yeah. Yeah. That was exactly how that fell. Yeah. Maybe hit his comfort with sexual contact with other people isn't just because she's disinterested. In that. Maybe it's because she's uncomfortable with Universum aspect of human interaction. Some added our I'm trying to work the movie never did. Maybe it's something that she would actually like to become comfortable with. But we don't give me this. Yeah. We we're speculating. Yeah. When is that thing? Right. Where like, you know, if you've got bad writing when you have to write you like your own scenes between the games, and I think that it's okay for moves to leave space to speculate between the gaps, but that's all this movie. Did you can't just do that? This little baby. So do we have anything positive to say about the film before we finish up this discussion, I'm knocking my brain. And I cannot think of anything like you said you liked the houseboat inside out like specifically that they didn't play down. How genuine their relationships with the husband was in water to have them in a relationship. Yep. Yep. Yup. I thought that was quite good. Maybe he's not very good. Zina's outfits, quite good. There were a couple of shots where basically a few of the shots where no one was talking because they were like traveling in a car or train only live out looks like they came out of a much better film. Also say this is really something that I can praise as maybe full. But I am very grateful that we didn't have to go to the genius slide. Financial talk about collegiate a move, which you have nothing. It's okay. I know the plot guys the content warnings for this section are as follows abusive relationships fetish station of minors transphobia and sex collect tells the story of the famous French nine hundred twentieth century writer Colette most famous for her Houdini books.

And she and her husband both having a with the same rich boiled American woman before later in life Colette gets into a long term relationship with a character. Who's called Missy in the film who was a transgender, man. The film stars Keira Knightley as Collette Dominic west as Willie and is directed by wash with Moland Sar friends. What did you think of this fell? This film is better than veteran Virginia I questioned Joe and seeing it and I will. Never see it again. I agree. I enjoyed it. It was a good movie the other who made to you. Yeah. I think what you succeeded whether even Virginia really fell down I can't help comparing the tune these. 'cause I sold them so close together in this in very similar eras. Is that the characters in Colette actually felt like real people doing things that real people would do yet. Collette and Willie both have really rich many cart is interesting to watch them interact. This movie actually voided falling into a few pitfalls that I assumed it would fall into I guess, we might as well talk about the relationship between Kaleen Housman, I off I really enjoyed the wet pick to the relationship between Colette and Willie because like I don't know much of that Colette. But I know that she had a husband who on the one hand supported her in having religious women ended horizon career, but on the other hand was pretty awful, man..

"The quiet end is quiet. That's how we like it. Why don't you go ahead and start off because we have a lot of ground to cover. Okay. So here we go. Jeffrey McDonald and Colette Stevenson grew up in patch, New York, Long Island. They knew each other since grade school and started dating while they're in high school. Then they broke up before college, dated other people, and then got back together again. Jeffy later, tell author Joe McGuiness that he had an active sex life with another girlfriend while he was a high school student. Jeffrey described. This girl has very attractive as someone who enjoyed having sex with. But by the time he was a student Princeton. He began to think she didn't fit in with his college friends and he. So he reached out to Colette. So here we got a guy who's getting laid regularly, but ship happy. Larry, really, she's not good enough for she's good enough to fuck just coming right out with it today. Are you? Are you okay? But she's not good enough because he goes to Princeton. Well, let's the impression I got at least from reading Joe McGuinness's book and Colette was a more acceptable choice to him more of a good girl. It's that kind of thing. But see you set this up so I can already be the bad guy. That guy the Jeffrey MacDonald hater. Oh, well, that's okay. I think that there's a lot of the population on your side, so I'm not too worried about that. Okay. So Colette was her mother Miller's fourth daughter, and the only one who survived past infancy. She has a tough history, mom very, very heartbreaking at seventeen Mildred, married him in ten years older than she. His name was cowl Stevenson and he had onto Lynch it in downtown pet show, which was a working class town on the south shore of Long Island. Noted wanted to baby right away a girl who she could dress up in fancy girly. Close Miller decided that if the baby was a girl, she would name Colette after the father. The baby was female. Yes, but still born that had been the first Colette. So second pregnancy resulted in another female infant who is going to be the second Colette. But this one was also still boring. So this is heartbreaking in this is something that doesn't happen so much nowadays because we monitor babies with alter sounds and your fetal heart tones bitter with monitoring pregnancies. So this happened more often back then where you think you're doing fine, and then the baby is just not alive. Right heartbreaking. Then a year later, a third Colette was born. This baby died within weeks, however, after surgery to try to relieve intestinal obstruction. And was that a common thing back that. Well, I think it's a common thing. If you looking at things that occurred in the fifties and sixties medically that you might not voice recognize the GI obstruction in timely fashion. And by the time you pick up that something's wrong. The baby's already gotten incredibly sick and stressed and probably isn't going to survive. So Miller did have a healthy male child after these three daughters. And then four years later may tenth nineteen forty three. She gave birth to fourth Colette. This one would live, and this was the one who had married, Jeffrey MacDonald. Okay. So this is our co let this is our Colette. We are realizing now what Coletta's mother went through and when you think that she's going to lose her daughter and her grandkids, let's just more than anyone person should have to cope with. Wasn't it way beyond? Yeah, her. She's finally gotten her daughter that she's treasured forever. The only one, the other daughters who survived the O'Hare Colette who survived and she's killed, yes. Along with the grandbabies, grandkids. It's terrible one Friday evening in the spring of nineteen fifty. Five Mildred was returning home from picking up her son at a friend's house. And as she opened the door to her garage, the car headlights lit up her husband Cowles hanging in his bathrobe from the rafters. Now he'd left no note and she hadn't seen any signs that he was depressed ahead of time. There'd been no sudden trauma in their life. So Mildred just was at a loss. She told friends, she had no idea what a driven her husband assume. Aside. So there's another loss for Mildred. This is incredible poor women..

"At a certain point, there is a interesting pattern which I know you've been asked about before, but I just want to ask you, you know, if you can psychoanalyze yourself, you are seemed drawn to and also do a lot of your best work in period pieces. Why is that. Good in the clothes. Chris. They have been the best characters that I have been offered hands down. I mean, I don't completely know why that is, but I was trying not to do them, and I was just like, how do you tend down? How do you turn down atonement? How'd you turned down any of these characters? You can't. It has to be about the character. And for me, like a lot of the stuff that I was offered in modern day things we will see the film. So obviously, other people are being offered, great parts wouldn't things. But for me, it was always the supportive. Why for the supportive girlfriends will fucking carrot to the right to ten scenes and then killed. And I was just like, I don't know for the sake of not doing costume drama, not playing these amazing characters. Why I would turn that down to play a supportive girlfriend to some date. I'm supportive at home. I don't want to do that work. So I think there's been an element of that. I mean, if I really look films of influenced me the most and the ones I've gone back to again, and again. You know it, it would be Lorenzo go. It would be remains of the day and how it's end and those sense and sensibility. But then they're very strong female leads. So they will always the ones when I was a kid I would watch. I mean, as well as the gold fall, though it drives complete enough. But even that, I suppose is a period. So I think there's something in the imagination that you know, there's a lot of freedom in a period film because we don't know what it was like back then really can really speak to the present even if they're so in the past. I think the amazing thing about Colette is that along with the Marlins MRs Mazel and the wife and several things that are hitting right now, even though they're period piece set in the past there about brilliant women who had been kept down who then assert themselves and thrive. You can almost be more overtly political and have an audience feel less likely I've been hit over the head with. Yeah, because you go wit. This is kind of resonating with me somehow.
