A Separation

This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is tied to a new theatrical release, but at a slight remove: My guest, director Brendan Prost, chose Nights and Weekends, the first directorial venture of Lady Bird‘s Greta Gerwig.

The difference is that Lady Bird is her solo debut; Gerwig co-directed this one with her co-star Joe Swanberg, and it’s excellent — a moody, deeply felt study of two people whose relationship snaps under the strain of a long-distance separation, played out in two stark, sad sections.

Wanna listen? Of course you do. So go subscribe  on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play or Stitcher or download this episode directly from the web. And maybe check out Brendan’s films too; they’re quite good, and they’re available at his website for your viewing pleasure.
