This week's episode of Pop Screen is about Lorene Scafaria's Hustlers, a film whose tonal balancing act is as precarious as Jennifer Lopez's gravity-defying pole dance. A feminist movie set at a strip club, a warm-hearted caper comedy about sexual exploitation and the credit crunch, a serious crime drama with a festival's worth of pop star cameos... can anyone pull this risky job off?
Join Graham and Sarah as they discuss the film's complex feminist credentials, the musical careers of Lopez, Lizzo and Cardi B, and Scafaria's status as a potential queen of the rom-com in a Hollywood age that doesn't care for them. We also do a quiz based on Jennifer Lopez's infamous 1998 Moveline interview, so it's not all heavyweight discussion.
