How to Build a Girl

This episode is not lame. It’s Laime. We’ve got the wonderful writer and podcaster Elizabeth Laime on the show to talk about Beanie Feldstein in How to Build a Girl. In the final installment of ‘This Is Your Movie Life,’ we reveal the movies that meant the most to us in our early thirties. We also answer a question from the ‘Who Shotline’ asking about the best movies set in one location. And, as always, we’ve got them tasty ‘Staff Picks.’
