You Can't Go Home Again, Except In These Movies (feat. Nate Ballard) | Episode 45
Posted November 1, 2016
On this week's show, we watched a trio of movies about adults returning to the small towns they abruptly left as teenagers. Comprising GROSSE POINTE BLANK, SWEET HOME ALABAMA and THE JUDGE, this genre raises all sorts of questions about self-reflection, the meaning of roots, and forgiving your younger self for handing out judgment. So naturally, we had to have Noah's little brother (a high school freshman) on the podcast. Find timestamps for the different movie discussions below, and find all episodes at bereelguys.com.
