The Forty-Year-Old Version

On the 151st episode of Piecing It Together, Rosa from Latinx Lens joins me to talk about Radha Blank’s fantastic feature debut The Forty-Year-Old Version. A story about reinvention, aging, success and hip-hop, it’s one of the freshest debuts of the year. Puzzle pieces include Do The Right Thing, Inside Llewyn Davis, Losing Ground and Dave.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Forty-Year-Old Version and the movies we discuss!
