Two women filmmakers are highlighted on the show this week! First up is Celine Sciamma, whose critically acclaimed Portrait of a Lady on Fire has finally had its wide release. Do Wade and Kevin fall within the critical consensus on this one? Another acclaimed filmmaker, Dee Rees of Mudbound fame, offers her follow-up to that film with another Netflix release, an adaptation of Joan Didion’s political thriller The Last Thing He Wanted.
