Pull up a Muskoka chair and a huge box of Kleenex because this week’s episode is dedicated to birthday girl Danita and two of her all-time faves: Bette Midler and BEACHES.

7/31/2019
More
We’re, like, freaking out because Hollywood Suite archival producer and film programmer Alicia Fletcher is with us this week to talk about Martha Coolidge and her bitchin’ 1983 flick VALLEY GIRL! Listen in as we flip right out over this California-set riff on Romeo and Juliet, including its seriously cute cast (Deborah Foreman + Nic Cage 4 ever!), rad soundtrack (we melt for “I Melt with You”!), and totally tubular costumes. Why is this literally perfect movie not talked about as much as...

Diablo Cody & 'Young Adult'

7/3/2019
More
It’s summer and we’re in *a mood* so we decided it was finally time to talk about the unfairly maligned and absolutely brilliant Diablo Cody. If we’re going to be honest to blog, we love everything Diablo does (Emily especially), but this week we’re focusing on one of her most challenging works: 2011’s YOUNG ADULT. Why does this uncompromising, uncomfortable character study about a depressed writer obsessed with her high school beau not get discussed more? Could it have something to do with...

Break out your purple clogs and your most capable outfit! Drunk Feminist Films cast member Bernita Rebeiro is in the passenger seat of our Jeep this week, giving us the 411 on why she’s still majorly, totally, butt crazy in love with Alicia Silverstone and her performance in CLUELESS. Better buckle up because we’re not only discussing Amy Heckerling’s, like, totally important teen film and its utterly aspirational protagonist, (fashion icon/do-gooder Cher Horowitz!), but also the “Crazy”...

Nicole Holofcener & 'Walking and Talking'

6/5/2019
More
This week, we are sitting and talking about Nicole Holofcener's debut film, critically-acclaimed ode to female friendship WALKING AND TALKING. How is it that this film, which paved the way for so many great modern works by and about women (including, yes, BRIDESMAIDS), isn’t talked about as much as the films of, say, Cameron Crowe and Noah Baumbach? And, more importantly, whatever happened to Anne Heche? All of this and more as we finally give the lovely, amazing, and recently...

This week, Danita and Emily take a detour to review Juanita, a new Netflix dramedy starring the always incredible Alfre Woodard.
