Norwegian writer/director Eskil Vogt (on both solo projects and those co-written with frequent collaborator Joachim Trier) is intrigued by the idea of “coming of age”…regardless of what age that might be. So it makes sense that he “felt seen” at an early age by The Breakfast Club’s Brian Johnon (Anthony Michael Hall). More recently, Eskil saw himself in Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) from The Souvenir Parts I and II, which focuses on a more grown-up coming of age. He and Jordan unravel all that, and his thrilling new movie The Innocents
Then, one quick thing about Men (…the Alex Garland movie).
Find out how/where to see The Innocents.
With Jordan Crucchiola and Eskil Vogt

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.
