Episode notes

My Girl

This week we are joined by IndieWire’s TV editor Kristen Lopez to discuss the “millennial classic,” ‘My Girl.’ Specifically, she’s here to talk about the Anna Chlumsky character of Vada Sultenfuss and the effect that she had on Kristen’s life. Kristen also talks about growing up disabled and how that influenced how she related to characters in film. Plus, at the end of the program, Jordan talks about how ‘Spencer’ beautifully portrays a type of love not often committed to film.

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.
