Ep449: Nothing Gold Can Stay

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie discuss one of the year's worst-reviewed prestige films, The Goldfinch! John Crowley's adaptation of Donna Tartt's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is getting savaged by the press, but you're about to hear a vigorous defense of the terrorism-aftermath drama (by one of these critics, anyway).

Also, Ian talks about a few upcoming events at the Music Box Theatre, including tonight's Q&A with the filmmakers behind Give Me Liberty; Monday's one-night engagement of American Dreamer (featuring a Q&A with star Jim Gaffigan and director Derrick Borte); and the Chicago premiere of the Mexican dark fantasy, Tigers Are Not Afraid. As a bonus, Ian shares an interview he did last month with Tigers writer/director Issa López!

Episode 449 isn't superstitious at all!
