Seeing and Believing 239 | Dan Scanlon’s Onward and Autumn de Wilde’s Emma
The guys explore more family-friendly realms in this week’s episode! First up is Pixar’s riff on fantasy tropes, Dungeons & Dragons, and fraternal bonding, the colorful Onward. Equally colorful is Autumn de Wilde’s take on Jane Austen’s airy Emma, starring Anya Taylor-Joy as the matchmaking socialite who faces a romantic reckoning of sorts when a match goes wrong. Do these movies offer quality escapism for turbulent times, or do they leave something to be desired? Listen and find out!
