Rebeca Huntt’s debut feature is a personal documentary that, even through its specificity, tells a story that is familiar to many but rarely depicted on screen. So it follows that when she thought hard about what character made her feel seen, no one character jumped out. But the ones that she named – Frances Ha, Poetic Justice, Lady Bird, Matilda – had something special in common with one another, and with Beba. Plus, Rebeca and Jordan bond over a childhood of watching movies as a family activity (regardless of the MPAA rating!).
Then, we keep the Greta Gerwig love rolling with one quick thing about her new BARBIE.

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.
