Episode 37: Antonia's Line
[CW for rape, suicide, and ableism] Did you like Chocolat but wish it had less Johnny Depp and more women's empowerment? Well, Antonia's Line definitely does not have Johnny Depp and does have slightly more women's empowerment, so it might be up your alley! This 1995 Dutch movie about 4 generations of women who don't need men at all (one of whom is so gay!!) won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and was described as a 'feminist fairy tale,' which is more or less accurate. Join Alicia and Sarah as they discuss this cool multigenerational family saga that takes place in a quirky European village, and how artichokes are gay!
