On the 39th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for a second time in a row to discuss Green Book. The fantastic true story of Jazz pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his Italian driver (Viggo Mortenson) in the 1960s shines a light on a familiar story of racial tensions that’s perfectly balanced by comedy-director Peter Farrely. Puzzle pieces include Driving Miss Daisy, The Blind Side, Little Miss Sunshine and A Bronx Tale.
Little Miss Sunshine
On the 25th episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Jason Harris and I discuss Eighth Grade, the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-felt new film from A24. The film from comedian and first time writer/director Bo Burnham follows 13 year old Kayla as she deals with Eighth Grade, growing up in today’s world and the always scary onset of High School, all while continuing to grow her YouTube video series. Puzzle pieces include Welcome to the Dollhouse, American Pie, Ingrid Goes West and The Squid & The Whale.
