Your trusted Irish source for film news, reviews and features. Podcast #21 – Back to School Special


It’s September and a nation of boys and girls are heading back to school. To celebrate we had another Watch With Spoool viewing for the 1968 British boarding school drama If…. and Michelle Pfeiffer-starring Dangerous Minds from 1995. We stick with the education theme and honour Robin Williams with our Scene It selection for the month which comes from Dead Poets Society.

We’re also reviewing Obvious Child, Million Dollar Arm, Lucy, Two Days One Night and Mood Indigo and previewing some of the best picks for September. Lastly we preview the 2014 IFI Stranger Than Fiction festival with thoughts on the Roger Ebert documentary Life Itself.
