Cinema trip! This weekend just gone the Queer Girl Film Club crew went to an actual real life cinema (complete with fellow audience members, including Guy Checking The Football Scores On His Phone As The Film Was Starting) to see Cate Blanchett going hell-for-leather for Oscar #3 in Tár (2022). The gang found that on top of Cate’s exquisite performance, it’s a film about bad people, uncomfortable topics and major ambiguity.
Join Holly, Alice and Georgia as we discuss how to enjoy this film despite knowing shit-all about classical music, whether it’s really a horror film in denial, and why nervous breakdowns are better with accordions. This episode goes deep on power dynamics and how queer women are capable of being abusive and awful, and why it matters that we talk about this.
CN: Swearing, spoilers, non-graphic discussion of sexual abuse and other abusive relationships, mention of suicide, discussion of sex work.
