End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 22, 2023 (Episode #285)

This week on End Credits, we’ve got a little bit of a post-Valentine’s Day treat for you, the listener. On the docket for this episode is a romantic comedy made by a husband-and-wife filmmaking team, which kind of makes it a Valentine for Valentine’s. So we’re reviewing Somebody I Used to Know and talking about other movies made by couples.

This Wednesday, February 22, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:

Power Couple Rankings. This week’s movie is the combined effort of a director and star who are married in real-life, which is not an unusual condition in Hollywood where romantic partnerships are born of professional ones, and vice versa. So to kick off this week’s show, we will talk about some our favourite movies that work (or not) thanks to the love match behind the scenes and the interpersonal dynamics of the filmmaker and their lead both in-front and behind the camera.

Somebody I Used to Know (2023). It’s not an original story, a small town A-type personality sees their well-laid dreams come to a sudden halt, which forces them to reconsider their lives back home where a romantic reunion makes them rethink their future. This time, the star is Alison Brie, she co-wrote the script with her director and husband Dave Franco, and the story finds reality show producer Ally landing at home just in time for her old boyfriend’s wedding weekend in her quaint little Washington State hometown. So how well do we know Somebody I Used to Know?

End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
