It's Rom-Chron time on Another Kind of Distance! Elise Moore and David Fiore confront the ecstasies and the banalities of quixotic, tick-tockic love amongst the comfortable classes.
On the menu this week: a glimpse of the ways in which the amnesia narrative and the time travel narrative proper become virtually indistinguishable; some discussion of the relationship between subjectivity and timelines; Schrödinger's Braces; and a lot of trash talk directed at Alain De Botton and Chuck Woolery.
We start with Gary Winick's 13 Going on 30 (2004), starring Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Judy Greer, and Andy Serkis.
Then we fall into the callow chasm that is Richard Curtis' About Time (2013). This one has Domhnall Gleeson, time travel vet Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, and Lydia Wilson.
We were going to do some listener feedback, but we decided that we ought to push that to the next episode, since this one is already well over 2.5 hours.
We would, however, like to take this opportunity to thank Siskoid for his encouragement and bloggish support!
In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us, either at firstname.lastname@example.org, on our Facebook Page, our Twitter account (@TimeTravelFilms), or David's Tumblr (where you'll find a bunch of images).
We're now on all of the podcast delivery services, including iTunes, Stitcher, and TuneIn Radio so please rate/review us there, if you can!
