Daniela Taplin Lundberg has made her mark in Hollywood doing something that’s become increasingly rare: creating authentic and artful films that are made for adults and appeal to a wide audience. These are movies like The Kids are All Right, Beast of No Nation, Nanny, Harriet, just to name a few. Today she talks with Jordan about Thelma and Louise – and in particular the affinity that she felt with Geena Davis’s Thelma from the first time she saw the movie (in the theaters, as a teenager). The movie was even an early example of her producer’s eye – she knew she’d seen something special before the film became a sensation.
Then, Jordan has one quick thing about her old friends and their new (nu?) dance with Ghostface in Scream 6.
Check out Daniela’s podcast, Hollywood Gold.
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.
