*There is a TW for this episode, as one of the films deals with sexual assault and we discuss this.
First, we tackle Things to Come (dir. Mia Hansen-Løve), a tale about a passionate middle-aged philosophy professor who rethinks her already much-examined life after an unforeseen divorce.
Then, we move on to Elle (dir. Paul Verhoeven). In this film, we see Huppert as a successful CEO of a video game company searching to learn the identity of the man who raped her.
This episode's shelter shout-out goes to Korean K9 Rescue! Go show them some love.
