In the latest episode of 'The Lens: A Cinema St. Louis Podcast', Josh, Kayla, & Andrew kick off a new series about filmmakers Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers with a deep dive into the Ephron-scripted Heartburn (1986):
The Lens is back from vacation with a mean case of Heartburn. The critics focus on Nora Ephron's 1986 autobiographical divorce story starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson. It's the first episode of their Nancy/Nora series, zooming in on the films and careers of writer-directors Meyers and Ephron.
First up in Now Showing, they'll cover Three Thousand Years of Longing, The Good Boss, and Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. For The Rules of the Game, Kayla quizzes Joshua and Andrew about actors who have appeared in both directors' films. Finally, they've got One More Thing with Bravo's Southern Charm, Netflix's The Sandman, and a trip to Hong Kong!
Next up is Andrew's pick of the Lindsay Lohan breakout The Parent Trap, Meyers' 1998 directorial debut. Please share, subscribe, and review! Follow us @stlfilmfest on Instagram/Twitter/Letterboxd and @CinemaStLouis on Facebook.
