This week on End Credits, we grow up. Not that this is an immature enterprise, but there are some serious big-time adult issues that we have to discuss about the entertainment business, and then the movie of the week is also about growing up. We’re reviewing Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret. and we’re also going to talk about Hollywood’s present labour strife.
This Wednesday, May 10, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Walk the Line. Last week, the members of the Writers’ Guild of America went on strike, which means, for the time being, no one’s working on scripts in Hollywood. At issue are a couple of things: changes to the TV business including more outlets and shorter seasons, plus the arrival of A.I. which can help penny-pinching studios cut some corners. Before the review this week, we’ll break down the details and talk about why this strike matters.
REVIEW: Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret. (2023). In 1970, Judy Blume published a book that captured on the page what it’s like for a young woman to go though puberty and deal with all the biological and sociological issues that come with it. Now, 53 years later, Edge of Seventeen filmmaker Kelly Fremon Craig has turned it into a movie, but the story’s the same: Young Margaret deals with issues of growing up, liking boys, and finding her faith in a very eventful year in one of the most relatable coming-of-age stories ever told. But does it make a good movie?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
