Episode Twenty-Five: Meet Me in St. Louis and A Christmas Tale
Christmas time is here, and Mike and Sean deck the halls with Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien in Vincente Minnelli's Meet Me in St. Louis and then take a sleigh ride to France to celebrate family dysfunction with Mathieu Amalric, Catherine Deneuve, Chiara Mastroianni and Anne Consigny in Arnauld Desplechin's A Christmas Tale. They'll also raise a wassail in salute to the career of Judy Garland and ring some silver bells for their Essential Christmas movies while Mike explains why all he wants for Christmas is Paul Rudd.
