Episode notes

When Emma Seligman’s debut film SHIVA BABY premiered in on a Brooklyn rooftop in 2021, Jordan was there to see the event first-hand. That was arguably the start of a whirlwind of movie deals and news that led straight to BOTTOMS, Seligman’s new film, co-written by Rachel Sennott (who stars in both films). On this week’s episode, Emma and Jordan talk through that trajectory as they compare notes on Needy Lesnicki, the heroine of one of FEELING SEEN’s most beloved texts.

Then, Jordan has one quick thing about a new Criterion Channel collection coming in September: High School Horror.

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.
