The Railway Children (#66)

Time to let our hair down for a good old-fashioned family dramedy! Brendan and Jason take a look at Lionel Jeffries’ 1970 film “The Railway Children” (#66 on the list) and discuss the vignette-style narrative of the film, Jason questions the poverty of the titular family, they take a comprehensive look at 1905-era Russia, they talk about the Beverly Hillbillies-style ending and much more.

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they’ll be watching next week. Join us, won’t you?
