Episode 15: Moonlight, Oscars Recap


Welcome to the 15th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! This week’s episode sees us look back on the 89th Academy Awards, and this year’s Best Picture winner Moonlight.

Leftover Popcorn is a weekly podcast dedicated to the world of moving pictures. Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder share a passion for everything, both weird and wonderful, from the world of television and cinema, and as such we’ll be discussing an eclectic mix of topics in the weeks and months to come.

The podcast itself is built with a very simple structure, with the hosting duties shared, each episode is built around a mixture of three or four regular segments. The segments rotate from week to week leaving discussion open to new releases in film and or TV, classics from both the big and small screen, broader discussions on influential figures and their work, previews of upcoming releases, and more.

Each segment is named after a quote from a movie or TV show that feature as a regular segue in our show, and hopefully will become familiar to you in time.

Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Before you dive in and start listening, let’s take a closer look at the subject of this week’s main segments.

Moonlight (2016) – Barry Jenkins

The second feature film from American director Barry Jenkins, Moonlight tells the story of a young male trying to come to terms with his identity and sexuality against the backdrop of challenging social circumstances around him.

Punctuated by beautiful and delicate storytelling, stunning and intimate cinematography and heartfelt performances from a cast comprised of familiar and unfamiliar faces alike; Moonlight is a modern masterpiece that also shares an important message.

Be sure to return next week when we’ll be back with more discussion about film and/or TV!
