Ep452: Late Screening: We Need to Talk About Kevin

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Cole Rush of The Quill to Live pick some roses and enjoy a "Late Screening" discussion about Sam Medes' Oscar-winning drama, American Beauty. The dark suburban satire made a huge impact on Ian two decades ago, but the viewing experience is markedly different today.

The guys get into Cole's first-timer impressions, and also look closer at how the controversy surrounding Best Actor-winner Kevin Spacey has changed the way people talk about American Beauty.

Also, Ian congratulates Cole on a huge milestone, and briefly returns to the written word for a critique of Derrick Borte's American Dreamer, starring Jim Gaffigan!

Episode 452 is thankful for every single moment of its stupid little life!
