Mike and Jenny return to the world of Mike Leigh to talk about the 1996 Palme d'Or winner Secrets & Lies. They discuss Mike's emotional reactions to stories about adoption, whether or not the film is able to transcend racial stereotypes with a white filmmaker, the crowded Best Actress Oscar race of 1996, the undervaluing of Timothy Spall, and how much meat is required for a barbecue. They also discuss the series finale of HBO's Game of Thrones. Leave us reviews on iTunes!
