Podcast - And Why Not? (500) Days of Summer


Every episode, our podcasting Barry Norman, aka Stuart Mulrain, lets a guest choose a film to discuss, reminisce over and share why they love it. This week, Stuart and guest Tom Stewart go hipster and look back at (500) Days of Summer ...

This episode, Stuart is joined by That Comic Smell's Tom Stewart to discuss the 2009 comedy; (500) Days Of Summer, the lies romantic comedies tell us and that slightly awkward feeling of seeing something of your younger self in a problematic hero.

Silver Linings Playbook, Ruby Sparks, Lost In Translation, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, High Fidelity, Annie Hall, The Graduate & the films of Wes Anderson.
