New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 254 | Hirokazu Kore-eda’s The Truth and David Dobkin’s Eurovision Song Contest

Whether you’re in the mood for a quiet family drama or a silly over-the-top comedy, Seeing & Believing has you covered for the Independence Day weekend. First up is The Truth, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s follow-up to his Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters and his first non-Japanese-language project. With a star-studded cast that includes Juliette Binoche, Ethan Hawke, and cinema legend Catherine Deneuve, Kore-eda continues to examine the familial bonds that people forge or are born into. On the sillier side of things is the Will Ferrell comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, about a hapless Icelandic duo that dreams of representing their country at Europe’s most famous (and most flamboyant) song-and-dance event.
