It’s the 25th anniversary of That Thing You Do! It’s a whirlwind movie about the rise and fall of a fake 1950s pop band that popped right out of the Beatles mold. A bunch of young 90s names including Liv Tyler, Steve Zahn, Tom Everett Scott, and Charlize Theron are all wrangled by a very serious, but likeable Tom Hanks. We both love this movie and it’s a ton of fun so check out the podcast.
Thanks to our fan Brady, we’re talking about one of my favorites, Sofia Coppola’s 2003 tale of ennui and self-discovery, Lost in Translation. Come listen to me discuss the early beginnings of my ScarJo crush as well as what makes this movie so personally identifiable to me and to probably everyone.
