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

Aug 10, 2017

Stacy and Nicole discuss The Big Sick, the death (and possible resurgence?) of romantic comedies, how we pick our mates, and immigrant assimilation.

Check out The Atlantic article on why romantic comedies can't keep people apart, some thoughtful criticism of the movie on Represent, and the Slate article on Master of None's Religion episode.  Also watch the 9/11 joke for yourself.

This episode Stacy recommends They Came Together and The Baxter and Nicole recommends Meet the Patels.
