Kaylia and Heather discuss this small book turned Big Burton film and ask important questions like: Just how anti-feminist is this book? Are tall tales useful or detrimental? Do true friends help you rob a bank? Is it better to teach the giant to farm or to sell him to the circus? How historically accurate do we want our absurd stories to be? And… which is more worth your time, movie or book? We might disagree but at least we have fun doing it!
Big Fish is a 2003 American fantasy comedy-drama film directed by Tim Burton, The film stars Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lange, Helena Bonham Carter, Alison Lohman, Robert Guillaume, Marion Cotillard, Steve Buscemi, and Danny DeVito.
Heather is a lifelong nerd and bookworm who lives in Fresno, CA. She spends her time reading whatever book has struck her fancy, watching Netflix, shopping with Kaylia, and cooking delicious food that probably deserves a food blog.
(You might remember her as a recurring guest on the Summer Watch / Shadow and Bone episodes!)
