This week, Megan offers 1955’s Summertime, starring Katharine Hepburn as a lonely tourist traveling in Venice, as one of her Favorite Movies.
On this week’s Water Cooler Podcast, we continue the Our Favorite Movies series with a selection from Megan. David Lean’s 1955 romantic drama Summertime stars Katharine Hepburn as a lonely elementary school secretary on holiday in Venice. There, she falls for antiques store owner Renato (Rossano Brazzi) against the backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful and romantic cities. We talk about Lean’s romantic film and Hepburn’s Oscar-nominated performance. Plus, what about this film speaks to Megan?
But first, Megan and Joey have seen Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. What did they think about his highest grossing opening weekend film? Will the Academy remember it fondly in six months after a “B” Cinemascore? Also, Clarence returns from New York where he saw three Broadway shows. He gives a quick overview of some of the biggest shows on Broadway.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
