New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 277 | Paul Greengrass’s News of the World and Lee Isaac Chung’s Minari

In his continuing journey to give an award-worthy performance in every existing film genre, Tom Hanks is back in 2021 with his first crack at a Western, Paul Greengrass’s News of the World. Based on the novel about a traveling newsreader in post-Civil War Texas, the film asks the question: can Hanks’s persona as “America’s dad” heal tensions in a divided country? Wade and Kevin also take a closer look at the family drama Minari, which placed on both of their top 10 lists of the year in last week’s episode. In their deep-dive review, the guys explore the film’s take on the American Dream and its effect on the American family.
