J. McVay is joined by Jacqueline Soller and Charles Hinshaw to begin a new ongoing project in which they look back on movies from 1999 to discuss how they hold up 20 years later. First in the series: ‘American Beauty,’ directed by Sam Mendes.
Later in the episode, Charles Hinshaw and J. McVay discuss the new documentary, ‘Maiden,’ directed by Alex Holmes, about the first all-female yacht crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989 — out now from Sony Pictures Classics.
