Can’t get enough? Good, because we’re back with another new episode and a discussion of TWO new releases!

The first film, Brooklyn, centers in on a young Irish immigrant coming of age in New York. We discuss Nick Hornby’s beautiful screenplay and the changing definition of home. We paired Brooklyn with another new release focused on the immigrant experience and what it means to be an American, Frederick Wiseman’s In Jackson Heights. Believe it or not, this touching portrait of a Queens neighborhood marks Wiseman’s 40th documentary effort.
