Nathan and Scotty discuss Joy, the story of the title character, who rose to become the founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty, directed by David O. Russell and starring Jennifer Lawrence. Winter, the season of Oscar Contenders, continues as we discuss: Oscar Season, strong female characters, Jennifer Lawrence (at length), Flirting with Disaster (1996), James L. Brooks, the story, the tone, and the Director that made it all happen. Plus, Andydrogynous reviews the Point Break remake during Crap Night. Jennifer Lawrence’s powerhouse performance may have been slighted by multiple variables in an otherwise solid movie for 2015. This episode is sponsored by Philz Coffee.
