TV & Film
It’s the 30th anniversary of Working Girl (1988), and Justin and Lindsay want to make sure you won’t forget this inspirational, underdog tale of success in the 80’s!
▶️ Directed by Mike Nichols and starring heavy-hitters like Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver and Harrison Ford, we follow a quick-witted woman trying to make her way in a boy’s club type world. Not many movies like Working Girl came out during this time, so the significance of the subject matter is discussed, along with the strength of the cast and why Working Girl is important in movie history.
▶️ Picks of the Week are connected by way of the main feature’s two stars. Justin goes for a top-notch, stalkery, thrill ride with Melanie Griffith in Pacific Heights (1990), while Lindsay keeps it creepy with serial killers on the brain and Sigourney Weaver in Copycat (1995).
▶️ The MurrayMoment closes this week out with Bill Murray‘s feelings on Ghostbusters II (1989). Can you guess how he feels about it, and maybe how this influenced the reboot of Ghostbusters in 2016? Let’s see if you may or may not feel the same way.
▶️ No matter who you are, the story of Working Girl is universal. Need inspiration? Justin and Lindsay have it for you in spades with Episode 8!
