Podcast: WIDOWS + WILDLIFE feat. Paul Dano
In a week of remarkable cinema releases, we discuss two of the year's most acclaimed films, Steve McQueen's Widows and Wildlife, directed by Paul Dano, who we also spoke to for this episode.
Wildlife, Paul Dano’s debut feature as director, is set in ‘60s Montana and follows the small town separation of Jeannete and Jerry, played by Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, and their son Joe who gets caught in the firefight.
With Widows Steve McQueen, one of the most interesting voices in contemporary British cinema directs a vital reimagining of the ‘80s TV drama of the same name. McQueen's crime-thriller transplants the story to modern-day Chicago and ups the ante, with Viola Davis shining through in an ensemble cast of widows who follow their husband's footsteps into crime after a botched job.
Discussing the films this week are Kelli Weston, Kelly Powell, Ella Kemp and Jake Cunningham
