Millions (Episode 64) - Hot Date with Dan and Vicky
Release Date: 02/16/2018
Director Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs, Slumdog Millionaire) has said his inspiration for Millions, the only PG rated film in the filmmaker's oeuvre, was to take a complete left turn from his previous film, the violent infection thriller 28 Days Later, and challenge himself to paint with a different tonal brush. Essentially a fantasy for children with real adult themes at the center, Millions stars the impressive kid actors Alex Etel and Lewis Owen McGibbon as brothers Damien and Anthony and James Nesbitt and Daisy Donovan as the adults in their lives.
Besides the heart tugging feature, Dan and Vicky catch us up on their recent viewing. For Vicky that included a trip to NY's finest museums, the films Ladybird, Landline, The Shape of Water, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, and TV shows The Alienist, Black Lightning, and Mosaic. Dan has thoughts on Phantom Thread, The Commuter, 1942's Sullivan's Travels, 47 Meters Down, and his favorite recent find, 1971's The Night Visitor.
And hear about the strange reason one of Dan's shows was canceled and how Vicky spent her birthday!
