We discuss The 40-Year-Old Version and Lingua Franca, two films by multi-hyphenate talents with personal stories to tell.

24:26 Lingua Franca, also on Netflix, is about an undocumented trans Filipina caretaker whose attempts to fix her immigration status gets muddied once her client's adult grandson moves in.
