With Sundance 2021 in the rearview, we take it back to look at two of the major releases from Sundance 2020 that are also writer/director first films, Radha Blank’s THE FOURTY-YEAR-OLD VERSION (00:02:06) and Emerald Fennell’s PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (00:33:02). We are joined by writer and critic Caroline Siede to talk about theatre world satire, hip hop depiction, sitcom supporting actors, and revenge thriller subversions.
