90 Minutes Or Less Film Fest

Mistress America with Sean Fennessey

Listen on

Episode notes

Sam Clements is curating a fictional film festival. He'll accept almost anything, but the movie must not be longer than 90 minutes. This is the 90 Minutes Or Less Film Fest podcast.

In episode 97 Sam is joined by Sean Fennessey, head of content at The Ringer and host of The Big Picture podcast.

Sean has chosen Noah Baumbach's 2015 comedy Mistress America (84 mins). The film was written by Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, and stars Gerwig, Lola Kirke, Jasmine Cephas Jones, and Michael Chernus.

Sam and Sean discuss the origins of the Big Picture podcast, how Mistress America captures the feel of living in New York as a young adult, and Baumbach and Gerwig's filmmaking partnership.
