S01E04: Local Hero

November 1st, 2020 No comments

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.
