This week we are discussing the highly controversial Disney live-action remake, Mulan. And we are joined by a woman whose first-ever film review was for this very movie; sociologist and author of Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism, Dr. Nancy Wang Yuen. We talk with her about the controversy behind the new film as well as how it stacks up to the original animated version. Plus, we answer a question from the ‘Who Shotline’ about movies that explore truth and reality. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’
In news, the Academy makes some changes to their requirements for ‘Best Picture’ eligibility.
