FS #231: Rachel Getting Married / Chicago Film Fest Preview / Top 5 Breakthrough Performances
Thursday, 16 October 2008 19:00

Oct. 17: Accepting director Jonathan Demme's invitation, Adam and Matty joined the Buckmans this past weekend for the celebration of their daughter's wedding in "Rachel Getting Married." Adam thought the shrimp was a tad over-cooked, and Matty's Electric Slide almost took out gramma Buckman, but the boys can't deny the fireworks and entertainment provided by Rachel (Rosemarie Dewitt) and the antics of her disruptive sister, Kym (Ann Hathaway). Plus, Filmspotting takes a quick look at the Chicago International Film Festival and offers up some suggested must-see's. Then, in honor of the Oscar buzz surrounding Anne Hathaway's performance in "Rachel," your hosts run out their personal Top 5 Breakthrough Performances.

Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and music by The Essex Green.

** Filmspotting is presented by spout.com. This week, we're wondering just how much Watchmen footage will be released before the movie. Keep an eye on all the coverage at blog.spout.com. **
