On the latest episode of Cinema Royale, I’m joined by Black Reel Awards founder Tim Gordon to talk about The Woman King. The story of the real-life African female fighting force of the Dahomey kingdom has been a long time coming, and Viola Davis shows her commitment not only with another potentially Oscar-worthy performance, but with a physical transformation we’ve never seen from her.
Plus, Tim talks about the movies he saw while at TIFF; we discuss our previous interview with The Woman King director Gina Prince-Bythewood, and much more because the two of can never shut up when together.
All of this and more! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to do the same on Youtube! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
