When it comes to film characters, author and commentator Charlie Jane Anders found that she had to took way back to a movie she loved as a child, AUNTIE MAME (1958), to name someone that made her feel seen in an aspirational way. But in that special FEELING SEEN way, the search for a character to identify with ends up revealing a whole slew of exuberant women who aren’t afraid to live their big, colorful lives — women like Harley Quinn, Leslie Knope, and the 13th Doctor.
For one quick thing this week, Jordan’s got something stuck in her craw regarding the franchise-fan response to the new TEXAS CHAINSAW movie.
About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
