It is a celebration of Iranian cinema on this episode of the show. First up we seem to have Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night on the brain as Courtney’s short film, Kevin Hamedani’s In Her Place, stars Shelia Vand, who famously played the lead in Amirpour’s breakthrough film. Andrew opts for a more direct connection with his short film selection, Milena Pastreich’s I Feel Stupid which was written by Amirpour. For their main discussion the pair dive into the murky marital waters of Asghar Farhadi’s 2006 drama Fireworks Wednesday, a tale of a house cleaner who gets more than she bargains for when her latest job unexpectedly places her in the middle of a domestic dispute between her new employer and his wife.
