Withnail & I – London, 1969 – two ‘resting’ (unemployed and unemployable) actors, Withnail and Marwood, fed up with damp, cold, piles of washing-up, mad drug dealers and psychotic Irishmen, decide to leave their squalid Camden flat for an idyllic holiday in the countryside, courtesy of Withnail’s uncle Monty’s country cottage. But when they get there, it rains non-stop, there’s no food, and their basic survival skills turn out to be somewhat limited. Matters are not helped by the arrival of Uncle Monty, who shows an uncomfortably keen interest in Marwood… (94% ROTTEN TOMATOES) https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/withnail_and_i

On this bonus episode Sean, Josh and I chat with Krisha Fairchild. She’s the star of the indie sensation “Krisha.” In came out in 2016 via A24 and has quickly become one of the favorite movies of our podcast. Her nephew Trey Edward Shults wrote and directed the film. He also wrote and directed “It Comes At Night” which is currently in theaters and just as good. “Krisha” is a semi-biographical film about their family, addiction and coping with an addict. It is a fascinating movie. The style is so unique, the fact that it came from a first time filmmaker is remarkable. Krisha Fairchild is wonderful in it and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
This movie is available on Amazon Prime right now. Please check it out right here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JHRXU7G?ref_=imdbref_tt_wbr_piv&tag=imdbtag_tt_wbr_piv-20. It’s a phenomenal piece of filmmaking and we’d love to have a conversation about this film with our listeners.
