There haven’t been a lot of actors covered in Let’s Take Five but after these five weeks, Jodie Foster is a reminder that the guys should do this more often. It’s not that these were the five best films in the world (they weren’t). Yet every time Jodie Foster brings a level of excellence that always surprised them. Listen as the guys look back at the films they watched, the films they didn’t watch and who is up next.
Films about rape remain some of the most traumatic stories in the medium. In 1988, The Accused got a lot of attention for Jodie Foster’s incredible performance and its approach to legally prosecute rapists. Austin and Eric discuss the impressive way that Foster formed her character, how the film remains very relevant and the ways it doesn’t. More than usual, you can take these two straight white guy’s perspective with a grain of salt, but we would love to continue the conversation.
