42: Picture Day (2012) with Sophia Fabiilli
We get explorative this week as actress and playwright Sophia Fabiilli brings us back to high school with 2013’s Dramedy “Picture Day”. We gush over the complex and deep Tatiana Maslany performance (but when don’t we), discuss our taste in Korean snacks, our failing math skills, constructing believable teenagers, and what an R rating applies to when it comes to concepts over content. Complex, sad, challenging, and weirdly hilarious, we’re all gonna tell you to get over to iTunes and rent Picture Day for your next movie night.
