The Breakdown of 'American Graffiti', 'All the Bright Places', 'Horse Girl' and 'Anna and the Apocalypse'
It is Monday morning and you're stuck at home and maybe you have nothing to do, so The Movie Breakdown has you covered for the next 90 plus minutes. This week we review four movies and all four have the theme of going through major life change. We review what is held up as one of the all-time classic coming of age pictures and the big break-out movie for George Lucas that doesn't involve a galaxy far, far away in the nostalgia trip, American Graffiti. We also have the adaptation of a YA best seller about two teens with tough pasts coming together in All the Bright Places. Then we discuss Alison Brie in the story about a very disturbed young women in Horse Girl. The last review is a blend of two genres in the zombie musical, Anna and the Apocalypse. We wrap the show up by analyzing what will be the long-term effects that the coronavirus will have on the movie industry and movie theatres.
We had a blast recording this week's episode and we really hope you love it. If you do love it, then the best way you can show your appreciation is sharing it on social media so other movie fans can discover us. This week we have at least one more bonus episode planned, and if that type of thing appeals to you, then we need your support more than ever. Thank you so much for listening to us.
