“To Leslie”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: February 3rd, 2023 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

In one of the more absurd phenomena of this movie award season, the folks who run the Oscars launched an investigation into the nomination of Andrea Riseborough, the star of “To Leslie.”


This in a town where Big Hollywood has been wooing voters by various and sundry means for decades?

In their infinite wisdom and beneficence, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences backed off, apparently satisfied there was no chicanery afoot.

Wise move.

For Ms. Riseborough’s performance as a down and out alcoholic avoids just about all the clichés that have evolved with such roles over time.

It is absolutely an award worthy portrayal.

You can watch it on Amazon Prime.

For more on this movie, which would have otherwise go unnoticed, listen to my podcast below.
