Cinemaball 12: L.A. Story

On this episode, we arrive in perpetually sunny Los Angeles for writer-star Steve Martin’s romantic ode to the city, L.A. Story. Ebony and Carolyn discuss the film’s gender and class politics, Martin’s distinct blend of zaniness and magic, and the way in which the film champions sincerity and depth of feeling. Unlike the movie itself, the podcast does not feature a Patrick Stewart cameo, but it does feature Carolyn briefly imitating Patrick Stewart’s character. As always, we offer up our scientifically accurate ratings, and Ebony reveals where the Cinemaball is headed next!

Remember, the weather will change your life, twice.

Cinemaball is produced by Sarah Nairalez.
