New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 231 | Greta Gerwig’s Little Women and the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems

Ring in the New Year (a couple of days late) with a new Seeing & Believing! This week, Wade and Kevin review a couple of films that had Christmas releases. Greta Gerwig’s Little Women adapts Louisa May Alcott’s much-adapted novel; does her perspective set her film apart from the crowd? Meanwhile, Josh and Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems cast Adam Sandler as a self-destructive jeweler who takes the audience on a tour of his attempts to score big, pay off his debts, and pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. The guys contemplate whether Sandler’s Oscar hopes are justified and whether the film provides roller-coaster thrills or just roller-coaster nausea.
