On this episode, we go potential AACTA Award crazy as we cover three Australian films: Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, Cinefest Oz winning Girl Asleep, and the Australian-Canadian co-production Early Winter. We then look at Nebraska writer Bob Nelson’s parable about life, religion and missing tool boxes with The Confirmation. Bernadette takes a look at another Mel Gibson effort – this time, Blood Father. Finally, we wrap up with the pseudo-sequel to Welcome to the Dollhouse with the dachsund friendly flick, Wiener-Dog.
