This episode, we managed to find another animated film Jena hasn’t seen, which is quite the challenge! In addition to being only our second animated film, it is also our second foreign language film. We watched “Persepolis,” which is a phenomenal film about growing up in post revolutionary Iran. If you are feeling particularly ambitious, we would suggest that this film pairs quite nicely with Argo.
Our next episode will be about the winner of the 2015 Academy Award for Best Picture: Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)!
