Episode 77: 'The Gift'

WOOO! IT'S TIME TO PODCAST! This week, J-Squared rolls back the clock a few weeks to catch Joel Edgerton's directorial debut, 'The Gift'. Blood-red ribbons, the Los Angeles landscape, and dark ominous tones color this home invasion-turned-Hitchcockian thriller. Will Jason Bateman be able to escape his legacy as Michael Bluth? Should hero morality be totally polar, or ambiguously life-like? Is this all just in Rebecca Hall's head?

Sometimes bad things can be a gift.
