Hiya, friends! On today's show: Blake Lively will star in the movie adaptation of Colleen Hoover's best selling book It Ends With Us, and people have lots to say about that casting decision. Plus, The Bachelors finale delivered some… interesting results, a couple of Aussie actors might have “beef”, while two American actors publicly resolve theirs. And then - the pop culture story of the week. Tiktokker Mikayla Nogueira posted a sponsored mascara video that's made millions of people very, very grumpy.

Well, the nominations for the 95th Annual Academy Awards are out! This year's ceremony will see a lot of fresh faces - 16 out of the 20 acting nods went to first-time nominees. Among the newbies are movie veterans Jamie Lee Curtis and Michelle Yeoh. Michelle also made history as the first Asian woman ever nominated for the Best Actress award. But it wouldn't be the Oscars without controversial snubs…and this year is no different. There are no women nominated for Best Director, despite being at the helm of some of the most celebrated films of the year.

Jen Offord (Standard Issue Podcast, author The Year of the Robin) and Hana Walker Brown (Broccoli Productions, author A Delicate Game) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Jen's choice The Lost Daughter.   The Lost Daughter is a 2021 drama, based on the Elena Ferrante novel of the same name and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal (her directorial debut). It stars Olivia Coleman as Leda, a university professor and translator on holiday in Greece. One day on the beach she meets Nina (Dakota Johnson) a young mother, when Nina's three-year-old daughter goes missing for a short period Nina is faced with her own memories and feelings of being a mother, told in flashbacks with Jessie Buckley playing the young Leda. Paul Mescal, Peter Sarsgaard and Ed Harris also co-star. Feelings about The Lost Daughter were mixed but there is no doubt about the powerhouse of acting on show - particularly from Coleman and Buckley playing Leda at different times of her life. The Lost Daughter is a bold choice by Gyllenhaal and Flixwatcher and guests look forward to seeing what she directs next. The Lost Daughter scored fairly highly on recommendability but with a runtime of two hours the repeat viewing scores were lower to give an overall rating of 3.39.   [supsystic-tables id=294] Episode #282 Crew Links Thanks to Episode #282 Crew of Hana Walker Brown (@HWalker_Brown) and Jen Offord (@inspireajen) Find their Websites online at https://twitter.com/broccolicontent And at https://twitter.com/hodderbooks And at https://linktr.ee/hana_walker_brown And at https://linktr.ee/JenOfford And at https://twitter.com/llmonts And at https://twitter.com/standardissueUK Please make sure you give them some love   More about The Lost Daughter For more info on The Lost Daughter, you can visit The Lost Daughter IMDb page here or The Lost Daughter Rotten Tomatoes page here.

Aftersun with Charlotte Wells

Today, we have with us the extraordinary Charlotte Wells – writer-director of one of the most affecting feature debuts in recent memory. Aftersun is a meditative drama about a father and daughter on a resort holiday in Turkey, told through the eyes and camcorder footage of 11-year-old Sophie, played by Frankie Corio. She shares a sweet relationship with her father Callum, played by Paul Mescal. Across their holiday, however, she's able to steal glimpses of him wrestling with problems beyond her comprehension, – problems he attempts to hide from the world. It's a story about memory, parenthood and the heartbreak of growing up and realising that your parents are people, too, with their own burdens to carry. Inevitably, it's being described as an awards season frontrunner, and one of the best movies of 2022.In the conversation you're about to hear, Charlotte tells me how the film began as an exploration of her relationship with her own dad, who she sadly lost aged sixteen. There's a certain overlap between her life and the events of the movie that we unpack in this chat, as well as some big differences between her early drafts of Aftersun versus the final film. Initially, the film was set to feature an adult version of Sophie wandering through scenes following her childhood self, like a sun-soaked Scrooge in A Christmas Carol. There was also a romantic relationship at the holiday resort for Callum that got jettisoned, and much more melodrama, a more pronounced plot.We talk why she stripped away those elements to drill deeper into the father-daughter tensions at the heart of the film, what it is about the pressures and repetitions of a family holiday that make for such an interesting backdrop to the film, and what exactly is happening in the film's astonishing emotional climax: a dance sequence set to Queen's Under Pressure, whose lyrics take on a poignant new meaning in the context of Callum and Sophie's relationship. It's a spoiler conversation, so be sure to watch the film on Mubi before tuning in. Script Apart is hosted by Al Horner and produced by Kamil Dymek.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for January 13, 2023 is: countenance • KOWN-tun-unss • noun Countenance is a formal word that is most often used to refer to a person's facial expression, or to the face generally, especially as an indication of mood, emotion, or character. // Her cheerful countenance quickly put the lost visitors at ease. // I was struck by the professor's kind and curious bespectacled countenance. See the entry > Examples: “The film stars Emily Watson and Paul Mescal as mother Aileen and son Brian, whose isolated, tight-knit fishing village on the Irish coast is lovely and decrepit. ... Mescal's charming but cagey performance is as much a lure for the audience as for Aileen herself, and Watson is breathtaking to watch as the cycle of furies and fears and doubts warp her countenance.” — Lauren Puckett-Pope, ELLE, 30 Sept. 2022 Did you know? Let's face it: the countenance familiar to modern speakers does not bear an obvious resemblance to its Latin root continēre, meaning “to hold together” (a root it shares with contain). But the path between continēre and countenance becomes clearer when we think of the figurative “holding together” present in the idea of restraint. When countenance was first used in English (having traveled from Latin through Anglo-French) it referred to a person's appearance or behavior—their demeanor—which is a product of restraint, or the lack thereof. And from “demeanor” it was just a hop, skip, and a jump to “facial expression.” A few centuries after that development, in the late 16th century, countenance faced a new task head-on—use as a verb meaning “to extend approval or toleration to.”

Flicks with The Film Snob

The painful struggles between parents and children are often a subject of drama, and no surprise, given the plentiful examples of this theme in human experience. What is rare and more difficult is the depiction of a strong emotional bond between a kid and a parent, and in the case of children, a love for one's mother and father that goes beyond words, a kind of environment in the child's mind that permeates life and leaves a lasting effect on the memory. Too often the artist, in a play or film, settles for a forced sense of sweetness, a sentimental, albeit often humorous, perspective on the young experience and point of view. Aftersun, the debut feature from Scottish writer and director Charlotte Wells, is that “one in a thousand” film that captures the essence of a fleeting time with devastating intensity and truth. Sophie is an 11-year-old girl on a summer holiday with her divorced dad at a less than luxurious seaside resort in Turkey. To sum up the plot, the story of what happens, is pretty much exactly what I just said. There is really no story in the usual sense—the big events happen within the characters, and especially within Sophie, played by a luminous young newcomer named Frankie Corio. The film is more like a poem, and a very beautiful one. The one-word title Aftersun, sounds enigmatic like a poem—in fact, it's a lotion that's applied to cool off the skin after exposure to the sun. But even this mundane detail can double as metaphor. Sophie loves her father Calum, played by Paul Mescal, and we soon realize that he's quite remarkable in his way, a man in his 30's who listens with steady attention to Sophie and treats her with tenderness and consideration. But of course we the audience can also see that he's an ordinary man with flaws, and with a life largely unknown to her, who lives near London with her mother the rest of the year and doesn't get to see him much. Through various hints—music and other references—we gradually realize that this is happening in the 1990s, and we're seeing all this as a memory of the adult Sophie today. This layer of memory, like the cooling aftersun of the title, evokes poignant feelings, a steady light of emotion in the heart of the future self looking on the experience through the eyes of the past self, so fleeting and so precious. Wells already shows a mastery of style that can visually explore the dawning awareness of this young girl's own mind and feelings, relentlessly expanding with image and sound the richness of an inner life which sees everything in this world as if brand new. There's much Wells has decided not to tell us. Why did Sophie's mother leave her father? Why Turkey, why are they vacationing there? What is the meaning of the father's melancholy, the shadows that so often stay hidden? These are all meant to be just hints, rather than plot points, hints like the incomplete knowledge kids have of the adult world, a world that Sophie is very curious about, and yet cautious of. And I kept expecting some tragic event to happen in the film, which never did, because the only tragedy here is the transience of beauty and love. It amazes me, I marvel at how once in a great while, a movie will come out of nowhere—filmmakers and actors with which I'm not familiar—and then when I just happen to see it, absolutely destroys me. I'm sure in some way it touches my own memories with my father, now departed, in that bittersweet way we can't always express. All I really know is that the devastating artistry of Aftersun shot me right through the heart.

The comedian Katherine Ryan has been in the news this week after she spoke out on a recent documentary with Louis Theroux about confronting an alleged sexual predator while making a tv show. She says this ‘star' has sexually assaulted women she knows and despite it being an ‘open secret' in the industry no one has managed to nail him down because he has ‘very good lawyers'. In the documentary she refuses to name the alleged sexual predator and then was called out on this on social media. But what is there to gain for women who name sexual predators in this way? Comedian Grace Campbell and Psychologist Dr Holi Rubin discuss the complexities of father and daughter relationships with Anita off the back of a new film Aftersun. It stars Paul Mescal, is directed by Charlotte Wells and has been applauded for the way it presents the bond between a father and daughter. Last month women's boxing made history when Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall fought in front of a sell-out crowd at the 02 arena to become the World Middleweight Champion. Not only was it the first-ever all female card in the UK but also the first time that two female boxers headlined at a major British venue. Despite this these developments 99% of all boxers are men and it remains a male dominated sport in all areas. One woman trying to change this is Susannah Schofield OBE. With her longstanding career in business and coaching she is using her knowledge, skills, and experience to ensure that women boxers get the same opportunities as their male counterparts, through her organisation championing female boxers. She hopes to harness the growing appetite for women's sport with the recent successes of women's football and rugby by convincing the BBC to show women's boxing. A recent report by the Local Government Association said “the largest proportional increase in gonorrhoea and chlamydia was seen in people aged over 65” leading up to the pandemic. But why are older people so often left out of the conversation about sexual health? Anita Rani is joined by Elaine Kingett, 70, who found herself widowed and having to buy condoms for the first time in her 50s and Professor Kaye Wellings, who is currently working on the next action plan on older adults and sexual health for the government.
