"Women Talking," "To Leslie" & Some Impressions of SPIFF 2023

The plight of desperate women is one of today’s central movie themes. And two of the movies that have attracted Academy Award attention explore that very topic. This week Dan Webster, Nathan Weinbender and Mary Pat Treuthart discuss writer-director Sarah Polley’s film “Women Talking,” which is up for two Oscars, and “To Leslie,” which has earned star Andrea Riseborough a surprise Best Actress nomination. They also share some impression of last week’s 24th Spokane International Film Festival.
