Heroes are best when they are unlikely. It makes the heroism all that much more satisfying. When a character in a film reaches deep down inside themselves and plucks the sword from the stone in their heart… It means more when we the audience didn’t see it coming. This week on CinemaJaw we aproach our own claymore in an anvil as we tackle our Top 5 Unlikely Heros in Film.

Joining us are a couple of heroes, themselves, not that unlikely! Al and Linda Lerner are a duo team of film critics who also happen to be husband and wife. On they post weekly if not nearly daily film critiques, interviews with filmmakers, actors and more, plus the occasional festival coverage. The two each have a deep and varied history in broadcasting, journalism, radio, film and television, and don’t worry… we ask them all about it.

Listen to the ‘Jaw and be a hero yourself!
