September 16, 2019

For this episode, William and Alan brushed off their French dictionaries in order to read the screenplay to Amélie, written by Jean-Pierre Jeaunet and Guillaume Laurant. A classic that has come to define the identity of French cinema for audiences in the rest of the world, it is a vibrant tale of a young woman facing her first steps into adulthood, a realm filled with the dangers of love, pain, grief and risk. A memorable cast of characters and some magical elements combine to create an unforgettable and touching story.
