This month we get to meet Truman, Teddy, and Rhoda, three people who, to put it simply, have issues they need to deal with. You may think you know yourself and what you are or aren’t capable of, but you’re probably wrong.
This month’s three of a kind takes on music, magic, and a great meal. Amadeus, The Prestige, and Big Night are three films that explore characters with a single-minded focus that drives them toward success but at a tremendous cost. Ambition, tenacity, and a spirit that never gives up can be the keys to success, but what happens if that energy is misguided or directed toward a selfish goal?
The three family action films, Legend of the Guardians, Rise of the Guardians, and Guardians of the Galaxy, aren’t just for kids. These movies give parents the opportunity to discuss the difference between heroes and guardians and how even the most ordinary can make a difference for someone else.
THE NEXT REEL FILM PODCAST is a funny and informative show in which co-hosts Andy Nelson and Pete Wright discuss one movie at length, from its origins to its performance and everything in between. Each movie is a part of a series, covering everything from directors to actors, key crew members to genres, years to themes. THE NEXT REEL FILM PODCAST also runs several other series: TNR SPEAKEASY, TNR FILM BOARD and TNR SHORTS.
THE NEXT REEL SPEAKEASY is a show in which a film industry insider joins us for an episode to discuss one of their favorite movies and how it inspires them in their own work.
THE NEXT REEL FILM BOARD is a show in which Justin Jaeger hosts an in-depth panel discussion about a new film just released in theatres.
And THE NEXT REEL SHORTS is a collection of shows and miniseries offering interviews, analysis and commentary curated by producer Steve Sarmento.
