This month on The BW/DR Podcast, we’re at the juncture of maximalism and mid-century modern, tackling Peyton Reed’s 2003 rom-com, Down With Love. Joining us is editor-in-chief of Fran Magazine, writer and OG Bright Waller Fran Hoepfner. We talk about the calculus of comedy, homage vs. parody, “high concept” romance, the David Hyde Pierce of it all, whether Pillow Talk sucks, and what goes into crafting Jacques Demy-style feel-gooderie for the new millennium.
