We discuss Ginny & Georgia and Rocks, two works that happen to be about the huge presence of a mother (or lack thereof) in the lives of a teen daughter.
03:47 Ginny & Georgia, a new Netflix series, is less interesting as a high school drama and more compelling as a story about the cycle of abuse and trauma. (That makes it sound more serious than it is, it's actually mostly an entertaining watch lol)
23:54 Rocks, also on Netflix, is a film about the warmth of teen girl friendship, the heartbreak of holding out for a mom who can't care for her children, and the terror of foster care and social services.
40:39 Plus, culture notes on WHAT IS A SNYDER'S CUT. Pelin explains to Jenny.
