It's getting cool outside but we're still hot under the collar watching the latest movies and TV shows and this week's harvest starts with "The Nest" which stars Jude Law as an entrepreneur who moves his American family into an English country manor where their lives take a major turn. There's also "Blackbird" which stars Susan Sarandon as a terminally ill mother who arranges to bring her family together one last time before she dies. And for you documentary fans we have "Oliver Sacks: His Own Life," directed by Ric Burns, which explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Oh, but there's more including discussions of the controversial Netflix films "Cuties" and why "Tenet" isn't making much money at the box-office. There's a chill in the air so put a log on the fire and listen in!
