It’s another edition of Midday at the Movies, our monthly conversation about films and filmmaking.  And Tom is joined once again on Zoom by our good friend Ann Hornaday – she’s a film critic for The Washington Post and the author of the wonderful movie-goers’ guide, Talking Pictures: How To Watch Movies.

Also with us again on Zoom is our friend Jed Dietz, the founding director of the Maryland Film Festival, and a leader in the restoration of its historic Parkway theater.

And listeners, we’d love to hear from you today as well. Tell us about the films YOU’VE been watching recently, either streamed or on the big screen.  Have any movies been especially helpful in getting you through these difficult times? 

Here are links to more information on the films mentioned on today's program:

Soul (Disney+/Pixar); One Night in Miami (Amazon); Let Them All Talk (HBO Max); Promising Young Woman (Focus Features Films); Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (Netflix); and MLK/FBI (IFC Films)These films are available on many streaming platforms and in some cases, at COVID-limited theater screenings.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
Rob is Midday's senior producer.
