Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Jun 2, 2023

Garret and Nicole discuss The Little Mermaid and the story's place in the queer canon. We both enjoyed the film, while not necessarily agreeing on the need for a remake. We dissect some of the crucial changes that fundamentally alter the message of the movie particularly the changes to Ursula. We discuss the origins of the story that is itself an analogy for queer love and the queer coding in the 1989 original.

Garret recommends the original Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid. Nicole recommends Franz Kafka and The Trial.
