S01E04: Local Hero

Ethan and Talia discuss Bill Forsyth’s 1983 film Local Hero. We wonder if all our favourite films are so because of their nostalgic element; how we still take pleasure in a film with very little conflict; and how Talia is disappointed to find that this film is many other people’s favourite as well as her own.
