Hidden Figures

The Margos finally get another Margo(t)on the show when we discuss the book to movie adaptation of Margot Lee Shetterley’s Hidden Figures.  Discussed are the differences between the book and the film (which was adapted from the 55-page book proposal and not the final book.)

We have some rather strong opinions on which we liked better. Here are some highlights from our discussion:

  • The amazing cast including Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson.
  • The white characters featured in the film that are NOT in the book.
  • Our reactions to the notorious “bathroom scene”
  • Our ideas for a Hidden Figures Hulu series!
  • The outstanding score by Pharrell Williams

Audio clips:

  • Hidden Figures trailer
  • The “Bathroom” Scene
  • Crave Pharrell Williams

Mudbound

The Hillary Jordan Novel Vs The Dee Rees Film

 

 

Welcome back to a new episode of Book Vs. Movie! This week, we are talking about the book/movie Mudbound which was written by Hillary Jordan (her debut novel) and directed by Dee Rees (Pariah, Bessie) who also co-wrote the adapted screenplay.  The Margos are not too ashamed to admit that this particular story and film gave us a big case of the sads. However, we are so in love with the writing, storytelling and acting here that we had a very hard time figuring out which we liked better.

Postcards From the Edge

It’s an all-out Carrie Fisher love fest talking about her 1987 first novel and the 1990 movie she herself adapted

 

 

The much beloved and missed Carrie Fisher won a Grammy Award this year for her audiobook The Princess Diarist so the Margos decided to replay one of their favorite episodes. Postcards From the Edge is Fisher’s first novel and the 1990 Meryl Streep/Shirley MacLaine movie are the perfect antidotes to the “I miss Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds” blues.

 

In this show they discuss:

  • The interesting background of Carrie and her relationship with her famous mother.
  • How she switched from her acting career to focus on writing hit novels and some of the funniest screenplays you never knew she helped out with her rapier wit.
  • The differences between the novel and the film
  • The pairing of Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine
  • How the topic of drugs is handled by the book and film
  • The fabulous singing by the leads
  • Fisher Stevens’ career & documentary
  • How much we will miss them!

Audio clips:

  • Carrie Fisher reads from Postcards from the Edge
  • Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep scene “It twirled!!!”
  • Shirley MacLaine sings I’m Still Here
  • Meryl Streep sings “I’m Checkin’ Out
  • Star Wars Theme

Book Vs Movie “Girl Interrupted (New Intro) 0

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

“Girl Interrupted”

The 1993 Susanna Kaysen Novel Vs. The 1999 Winona Ryder-Produced Movie

Are you ready to learn a whole lot about Borderline Personality Disorder? You better damn well be because the Margos sure did after reading Girl Interrupted and man we just LOVE this book and movie discussion!

We start off talking about the recent Women’s Marches and then get right into the nitty-gritty of Susanna Kaysen’s (our author’s) interesting background and the history of the McLean Hosptial who past residents include Sylvia Plath, James Taylor, Ray Charles and David Foster Wallace. She stayed there between 1967-1968 and wrote this book in 1993.

Actress Winona Ryder (just 21 years old at the time) bought the movie rights and waited several years to see her passion project become the star vehicle for multi-award winner Angelina Jolie (oops!)

We read the book and then watched the movie. Which did the Margos like better? Listen below to find out!

In this episode the Margos discuss:

  • Susanna Kaysen’s backstory and the cost (adjusted for inflation) to “cure” her mental illness
  • Winona Ryder’s only (so far) Executive Producer credit
  • How women were treated at mental institutions in the 1960s
  • The vast number of changes between book and film
  • Angelina Jolie’s incredible performance
  • The excellent supporting cast
