Where’d You Go, Bernadette

“People like you must create. If you don’t create, you will become a menace to society”

The Film Board returns from hiatus this week and we figured that we’d welcome everyone back in by answering the question – “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?” now showing in theaters. The Richard Linklater film stars Cate Blanchett and is based on the book by Maria Semple. While the book is a collection of fictional correspondence meant to take the reader on creative scavenger hunt, the film sets up to be a deeper dramedy about how hard it is to be human and how we cope with managing our extreme strengths and debilitating weaknesses.

Does genius come through in all mediums? When life changes our path, how should we choose to change with it? The book and movie might not have exactly the same message, so listen with Steve, Tommy and JJ as they wind their way through the eclectic journey of Bernadette’s discoveries on this episode of The Next Reel.
