Watching a mother and her son try to wait out a rabid dog from the relative safety of a broken down Pinto in "Cujo" wouldn't be so compelling if not for Dee Wallace's intensely emotional performance as Donna. This week, I queen out on some of her most powerful nuances and how she exemplifies the Final Mom archetype. I also highlight a similar showdown in 2018's "He's Out There," with Handmaids Tale BSA Yvonne Strahovski. Speaking of BSA's, the Best Supporting Podcast, with co-host Nick Kochanov, premieres October 9th! Get in touch with me!
