Episode 194 Transcript:

Emma: You’re listening to The Stunning Mess Podcast, your cozy consolation hear, and this week we’re discussing the film Now and Then directed by Leslie Linka Gladder and starring Christina Ricci and Demi Moore. An oldie however a goodie. 

Elsie: Sure, this can be a fantastic film. I’m excited to debate it. 

Emma: Yeah, me too. However earlier than we do, Elsie stated she had a private opener. That’s what we name these segments and it’s some loopy story that she hasn’t informed me but, so I’m listening to it for the primary time. 

Elsie: Alright, who’s able to be horrified, terrified, and freaked out? 

Emma: Me, me, me, me. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay, good. Alright. So the opposite day I purchased this superior large portray on the flea market ’trigger I had this concept that I might, mainly, it’s like a large portray of a sea scene with a few boats and stuff, and it has the shore and it has a moon and it has a sky. That’s what it seems to be, and it simply regarded like an old-timey portray with a fantastic gold body, and it was actually large. And so I had the concept I used to be gonna take it house and paint slightly pirate ship and a few little fairies and a few little mermaids on it and make this Neverland portray, for our visitor room upstairs ’trigger we’re making the form of like an adults and children visitor suite upstairs. So anyway, I did it and it turned out so cute. So Marigold was simply waking up from her nap, this was simply a few days in the past, and so I used to be like, Goldie, I completed the Neverland portray, it’s upstairs. Do you wanna see it? And he or she was like, yeah, and so we went upstairs. And Nova was nonetheless asleep and Jeremy was downstairs within the kitchen watching baseball. We acquired up there, so exhibiting her, you recognize, just like the pirate ship and the mermaids after which the fairy tree, it glows at nighttime ’trigger I discovered some glow-in-the-dark paint. So I used to be like, let’s try the glow at nighttime. So we form of caught this large portray into the closet, barely match, and we acquired into the closet and we shut the door. And now you recognize the place the story’s going. 

Emma: I don’t. Did you get locked in? 

Elsie: Yeah, and it wouldn’t open. And so we had been on the third flooring, and for a second I used to be like, okay, we’ll get it open. I used to be like simply exhibiting her the portray and making an attempt to not overreact ’trigger I didn’t need her to freak out. I didn’t need her to really feel any dangerous vitality from me ’trigger we had been in a really small area collectively. However I used to be form of feeling round and it was virtually fully darkish with slightly hole alongside the floorboard. Slightly, we might see out. And to be clear, the fairy lights did hold glowing your complete time we had been on this closet, which was quarter-hour. So I began first identical to screaming, you recognize, Jeremy, Jeremy like that, making an attempt to get him to listen to, after which it was Nova. Nova later claims that she might hear, however she was too drained to verify what anybody wanted. 

Emma: Wow Nova. Wow, Thanks for nothing. 

Elsie: I do know, and I used to be banging on the door. I imply actually loud. For quarter-hour I’d say might be a great estimate. I’ve no means of figuring out how lengthy we had been in there, however it acquired extremely popular. I knew that it was going to be okay, there was by no means a second the place I believed they received’t have the ability to discover us. Or they would depart the home with out us or one thing. ’trigger I knew they’d discover ultimately that we weren’t there, however it took means longer than I believed it might. Like quarter-hour being trapped in a closet with no telephone, we didn’t have something, we solely simply had the portray. And yeah, it was the worst, it was the worst feeling ever. So now I would like to instantly get these locks eliminated off the closets up there as a result of they’re form of harmful and freaky. Anyway, after a very long time Jeremy heard me screaming after which he ran up there and he was actually sorry and he felt dangerous. 

Emma: It’s form of far, I’ve been over at your home, it’s on a 3rd flooring.

Elsie: It’s an attic mainly, and it’s fairly nicely enclosed. So I form of knew he wouldn’t have the ability to hear and he had a baseball sport on. 

Emma: Yeah. Truthfully, I’m stunned he did hear you ’trigger I’m excited about somebody being on that third flooring and being down within the kitchen.

Elsie: I form of was like laying on the bottom, placing my mouth as much as the crack, holding my hand there in order that I might get essentially the most potential noise out of the outlet, and Marigold was doing it too, she was collaborating. Anyway, that’s our story. 

Emma: That’s hilarious. I believed it was gonna be both one of many youngsters painted over it when you had been carried out, or I believed possibly there was gonna be a rat within the closet or one thing. You realize, one thing the place you couldn’t escape it. 

Elsie: Nicely, the unsettling factor is this can be a closet that has one other attic door inside it, and I’ve regarded inside it earlier than with Nova and it’s form of scary, so I simply needed to like flip my mind off to excited about it whereas we had been in there as a result of, in a horror film means, it might’ve been horrible ’trigger we had been for certain trapped in there there was no means out. I used to be slamming on it. I couldn’t break it down. 

Emma: Nicely, within the youngsters’s e book model, you guys leap into the portray and simply sail away within the pirate boat as a result of that’s the best way out is into the portray. And then you definitely get to the top of the film and it was all a dream and also you had been caught within the closet the entire time, and your dad and mom lastly got here. 

Elsie: Okay, so again to the topic. Anyway, a consolation rewatch, I attempted to observe this film with my youngsters and it was too boring for them. They think about it an grownup film, and actually, I watched it with Jeremy final evening and it was, it was good. It was enjoyable. It was cozy. My assessment of it was I had watched it as a baby, after which this was my first time to observe it as an grownup and I’d positively put it into our cozy rewatch rotation. It’s very candy. It does have that feel-good. However I suppose I used to be anticipating it to have extra of a giant story. It doesn’t have a giant story however it’s fairly chill and it’s fairly delicate, I’d say. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s, and it has fairly dramatic moments too. So, I had by no means seen the film earlier than. So I first watched the trailer being like, what is that this film that we’re gonna do? As a result of, we’re form of breaking out of the consolation rewatch, I suppose, since technically I hadn’t seen it earlier than. So I watched the trailer and I used to be like, oh, I feel I’m gonna love this as a result of in case you’ve by no means seen Now and Then, which I hadn’t, it’s primarily a few group of younger women and it’s their coming of age summer time. They’re all like 12, 13, and they also’re form of rising up. They’re better of associates they usually make a pact that in the event that they ever want one another after they develop up, they’ll get again collectively. They’ll reassemble they usually do this. Certainly one of ’em is having her first child they usually form of reassemble they usually’re mainly reminiscing about this summer time that they spent collectively. And so many of the film is simply seeing the summer time when these women are rising up, after which slightly bit, it flashes ahead to love who they’re within the current tense because the grown grownup ladies, and it’s actually candy. After watching it 5 out of 5 ruining the ending right here but when I used to be going to redo it, I’d say, I don’t even know if we want the grownup half. I’m like, simply present us the children’ Summer time. You can have simply made the entire film simply the children’ summer time. 

Elsie: Actually? 

Emma: Yeah. 

Elsie: I just like the forwards and backwards. 

Emma: There’s one half the place one of many youngsters virtually dies and also you form of know she received’t ’trigger it’s a child’s film, however as a result of I’ve already seen her as an grownup, I do know she received’t. So to me, it virtually took away this dramatic second. Whereas I feel if it was simply the summer time, you’d be like, oh my God, is that this child about to die? Like, whoa, this film’s means darker than I believed, and he or she doesn’t. Additionally, a giant bonus to this film, in my view, is that they do a seance and a graveyard a few instances. And a giant aspect plot, which I feel form of turns into the primary plot, is you’re making an attempt to determine what occurred to this one individual within the graveyard, Johnny, Expensive Johnny. They’re making an attempt to determine their story, and that’s what the summer time form of turns into in a means. And I form of really feel prefer it might be virtually a Halloween film as a result of there’s a lot within the graveyard and like ghosts and It’s form of a darkish story of what occurred to that household. 

Elsie: Rattling. Perhaps they missed its true calling. 

Emma: I used to be like, when did this launch? Did it come out earlier than Halloween? ’trigger I felt like there have been some spooky components for a child’s film. After which the half the place considered one of ’em virtually dies like in a drain, and it’s like, wow, that’s darkish. Additionally, when she goes down there, I used to be like, is it about to point out up since you’re down on this drain, and I simply really feel like there’s about to be a creepy clown any minute now, however there wasn’t. 

Elsie: I hate the drain factor. I simply can’t think about that anybody would ever wish to attempt to go inside one. It’s completely horrible.

Emma: It’s. Yeah. Nicely, throughout rain too. It’s like, oh my god. Yeah. My recollections of first watching this film the opposite evening is I beloved it.

Elsie: Yeah. I bear in mind watching it as a baby. I knew it had Christina Ricci and Thora Birch. I didn’t bear in mind anything about it. Just about. 

Emma: That’s a reasonably all-star forged. As soon as I used to be watching it, I used to be like, Rosie O’Donnell, Rita Wilson. What? What’s taking place right here? Yeah. It’s like a reasonably all-star.

Elsie: Yeah. No, I like the entire casting. It’s very nice. Yeah. So, okay. So far as decor inspiration.

Emma: Earlier than we discuss concerning the homes can we simply shout out to the gaslight lamps within the neighborhood? The neighborhood is called Gaslight one thing. Gaslight estates, I wanna say.

Elsie: Gaslight District or one thing.

Emma: I don’t know. It’s one thing, and every of the little outside sconces in entrance of individuals’s homes, just like the streetlights are flickering, it’s like gasoline lit by propane or no matter. 

Elsie: I like these form of lamps.

Emma: I used to be so into it. I don’t know in the event that they’re harmful. I do know nothing about them.

Elsie: Oh, they’re not harmful, numerous folks have them. 

Emma: However I used to be like, that is so charming. Yeah. I like these gaslight lamps, I used to be so into that. I beloved that element. I felt prefer it should be in somebody’s precise neighborhood someplace, ’trigger it was actually particular they usually confirmed it just a few instances and I beloved it.

Elsie: Sure, I beloved the element as nicely. Certainly one of our associates, I received’t say who, ’trigger possibly that is like violating their privateness, however considered one of our shut associates lives in a, like, what’d you name it? An old-timey-themed neighborhood and it form of seems to be like that with the lamps, you’ve by no means been there. 

Emma: I don’t know who you’re speaking about. I really feel like they’re secret, protected as a result of I don’t know who you speaking about. 

Elsie: All of the streets are named after outdated authors or books or one thing. I’m making an attempt to consider some extent, in any case.

Emma: It’s most likely like Charles Dickens’s means or one thing. 

Elsie: Yeah, it has like gazebos.

Emma: Shakespeare circle. I don’t know. What are we doing? 

Elsie: Yeah, I feel it’s like Jane Austen and Charles Dixon’s theme or one thing. I don’t know. It’s cute although. Anyway, these neighborhoods do exist is my level. I didn’t have robust decor reactions to this film, I’ll simply say upfront. For me, essentially the most nostalgic half was the general feeling and for me, my favourite rooms that had been proven had been for certain the tree home and in addition the grandma’s attic after they broke into the grandma’s attic. These had been the vibiest locations, and I additionally just like the small-town diner.

Emma: I beloved the diner and the psychic’s home. After they go to get the tarot card studying or no matter it’s they’re doing precisely. Her home was cool too, with all of the beads and the doorways and issues like that. It felt very, It’s the vibe.

Elsie: Eighties meets Tarot Woman. 

Emma: Yeah. It was like a dressing up. It was like a Disney experience, however it additionally felt excellent and I beloved it. 

Elsie: Oh yeah, that’s a good suggestion for a Disney experience, now that you simply point out it. 

Emma: Like a psychic studying, and it might be like previous, current, future. We don’t have to design that proper now. Let’s focus. Okay. So my favourite rooms although, I did love Chrissy’s bed room. She has pink and white stripe wallpaper in her room. That’s the one. Bonnie Hunt’s the mother, and it’s coming and giving her the intercourse discuss. But it surely’s not actual intercourse discuss, it’s flowers and gardening intercourse discuss, and also you’re like, uh oh, this isn’t gonna be useful. And that’s all you’re considering within the film. However the wallpaper seems to be identical to old-fashioned Peter Pan, their bed room wallpaper, like within the e book. I learn that to Oscar on a regular basis, he loves that one. So I used to be like, oh, that is the Peter Pan bed room wallpaper. It’s not Peter Pan’s bed room, however like Wendy and her brother’s, their playroom, the nursery, it’s like pink and white stripes. And I used to be like, this seems to be identical to Chrissy’s bed room. That’s attention-grabbing. After which I additionally actually like Teenie’s room. Thora Birch and her character develop as much as be a film star, and her bed room was simply very seventies, groovy, orange and yellow and purple. 

Elsie: That’s true. Her bed room regarded like a modern-day house Instagrammer. It was very vibey and completed out, she had her built-in colours matching her wallpaper and stuff.

Emma: They usually talked about that her dad and mom are form of nicely todo or nation membership folks, I feel it calls them or one thing. So I used to be like, okay, I suppose it is sensible as a result of her bed room, I used to be like, this can be a good bed room. I don’t know what your childhood bed room was like, however mine was extra like posters tacked up on the wall, you recognize? So I used to be like, wow, this room is fancy, I used to be fairly into it and yeah, beloved the tree home. It had a fantastic rail round it. I used to be form of obsessed in the entire film that they stored saying it was like $124 they usually’re making an attempt to avoid wasting up the cash for this tree home. And I used to be like, this tree home price $124. I do know that is set means again within the day, however actually? After which additionally, who’s gonna set up this? Whose dad and mom put this tree home up, ’trigger it was like three tales up. It was means up within the tree, that they had like three ladders snaking up there. 

Elsie: They did form of HGTV slightly bit on the tree home as a result of they stated it was $120 and you would purchase it from Sears. However someone has to place that package collectively.

Emma: And there’s portray concerned critical portray. Yeah. Not like simply sprayed it. 

Elsie: There was loads occurring. It was very elaborate. I’m positively in my tree home period making an attempt to get my youngsters an epic tree home, so I used to be very invested in that. 

Emma: I didn’t assume they confirmed the within sufficient both. I used to be very upset. I attempted Googling it later and there wasn’t something on-line both, and I used to be upset. 

Elsie: Should you don’t present the inside of your tree home throughout all 4 seasons and the most important holidays, then don’t even make a film about it. 

Emma: Don’t discuss concerning the tree home as a result of Yeah, it’s such as you’re not even exhibiting it to us. God. Yeah, I didn’t really feel like there was sufficient. And on the very finish of the film, one of many characters had her child, they usually’re all up within the tree home speaking and the infant’s up there. And I used to be like, okay no, as a result of I noticed that there have been three ladders to stand up into this tree home. You’ve a new child child up there. How did you climb up these ladders with that child? I didn’t imagine that half. I used to be like, Nope. I’m not calling it an unsafe state of affairs. I’m simply saying I don’t see how you probably did it. I don’t assume so. 

Elsie: It is advisable to droop your disbelief for that slightly bit. 

Emma: I used to be like, why’d you’re taking the infant up there? Treehouses are the place to flee the infant for a couple of minutes. Go away it along with your mother for a couple of minutes. 

Elsie: Oh, Emma. 

Emma: Anyway. What else? What else, what else? 

Elsie: They’re simply making an attempt to painting the circle of life.

Emma: I suppose that’s true. 

Elsie: Don’t take that away from them. 

Emma: I’ll say possibly the interiors weren’t as, I imply, they had been fairly nice, however there simply wasn’t as a lot of them.

There was a number of being exterior. They’re on their bikes loads. There’s loads taking place outside. So I really feel just like the film’s slightly extra about that. They’re within the graveyard loads, however I did really feel like there was some fairly good style inspiration on this. I do know we’re following round like preteen women, however I nonetheless was like, I just like the shirt, I like these shorts.

If Madewell was promoting this, I’d purchase it, I’m fairly , it was all cute. 

Elsie: Yeah, they had been positively cute and I beloved their grownup variations, seeing how they dressed as nicely. It’s very candy. It’s such a great film. 

Emma: Yeah. Demi Morre’s character, I feel she’s form of science fiction. She had these braids up on her head. 

Elsie: She was like a brilliant hipster. 

Emma: Yeah, positively. Sort of a Benik sort or one thing, very emo. However yeah another inspirations from the film? They do a number of life classes ’trigger one of many women virtually dies, and one of many women has a useless dad or mum. Certainly one of ’em, the dad and mom are divorcing, and he or she meets the brand new boyfriend and that’s an entire second. 

Elsie: Oh my God. Certainly one of my favourite traces from the film was when she stated, I’ve heard that in just a few years, 50% of the inhabitants will likely be divorced. And he or she’s like, I don’t imagine that. It’s like, oh my gosh it’s such a loopy change for our nation when no-fault divorce turned authorized. It’s very totally different. 

Emma: Very totally different. Oh, the scene the place they meet the vet who’s performed by Brendan Frazier. He’s a Vietnam vet, and he appears to be hitchhiking, and he form of has a limp. And they also form of discuss that he acquired shot within the wars, I imagine what his character says, however he’s alleged to be a Vietnam vet so he’s gotten again from Vietnam considerably just lately, I feel, what the film’s telling us. And that complete scene to me was like actually bizarre. ’trigger I used to be like, what’s taking place? This man appears to be like a younger man, like an grownup, and there’s all these pre-teen women and he’s like letting them have a cigarette. On the one hand, I’m like, okay, he’s making an attempt to be pleasant, however then again, I used to be like, is one thing bizarre about to occur, I don’t know, my radar was up. 

Elsie: That’s true. My radar was up as nicely. And did you discover that there was a scene the place their grandma brings ’em into their lounge and he or she serves all of them, I feel alcohol as a result of they’re all choking on their drink, and It regarded prefer it might be lemonade, however they’re all like choking it down. So I feel that’s what they had been implying. That is actually humorous as a result of yeah, we positively didn’t have grandmas who served us alcohol once we had been 12 years outdated. That will be so cool. 

Emma: And there are a number of cigarettes within the film. Like mini characters are smoking. Which, no matter however I simply really feel like films don’t do this as a lot now, so I used to be identical to, oh yeah, that is an outdated film. Again once we had been far more chill about this ’trigger it’s a child film for certain, a minimum of a household film.

Elsie: That’s true. It’s positively outdated, however I form of imagine in accepting outdated issues for what they’re.

Emma: Nicely, smoking’s the worst factor that occurs within the film then It’s like, that’s not that dangerous. ’trigger it’s fairly simple to inform a child, smoking heads up causes most cancers. It’s fairly simple. It’s simply attention-grabbing. 

Elsie: Yeah, I believed the small city, just like the Major Road strip, was additionally actually cute. I all the time prefer it after they have that in films. ’trigger that’s one thing that being from Missouri, we see, we see cities that look that means loads. Our city doesn’t look that means, however numerous like communities, little surrounding cities the place our grandma’s from there are many locations that look that means and it’s, it’s so candy.

Emma: Yeah, slightly, having slightly dinner made me consider the diner we used to go to with our grandma rising up. Oh yeah. It felt very acquainted, however it didn’t really feel like my city, which I feel is nice. I think about {that a} praise. They had been like tapping into one thing form of common, a minimum of to me. However oh yeah, I beloved it. Ought to we do some trivia? 

Elsie: Let’s do the trivia. 

Emma: Okay. First, so the 4 youthful variations of the ladies had been forged first, and after the adults had been forged, they watched the footage of the younger women’ performances to tell their very own. 

Elsie: That’s good. 

Emma: Do you actually assume that, how plausible do you assume that was although ’trigger I used to be like, I like this complete forged. And everybody did a fantastic job, however I didn’t really feel prefer it was like, oh yeah, they forged these two folks ’trigger they form of look alike, or their mannerisms felt comparable. I used to be identical to, okay they usually forged two nice actresses, one who’s a baby and one who’s an grownup and that’s that, you recognize? However I didn’t actually really feel prefer it was like, oh yeah, they appear so comparable.

Elsie: To be one hundred percent trustworthy, I feel they only picked well-known folks too. 

Emma: That’s what I feel. I’m not saying it’s dangerous, however I’m identical to, I don’t know. I don’t really feel like they acquired my mannerisms precisely. I used to be like, I don’t know. 

Elsie: That’s true. Like have you ever watched the present Yellow Jackets? 

Emma: No. 

Elsie: It’s like a latest present they usually have like a youthful and teenage model or an grownup and teenage model of the identical characters, they usually look loads alike. They usually actually promote it. They didn’t do this, no. 

Emma: Or when the brand new Hocus Pocus got here out this previous 12 months, that one I felt just like the little women, the younger, I don’t understand how outdated they’re, I feel they’re younger women, however within the film, they felt like they watched the outdated Hocus Pocus to me or Hocus Pocus loads ’trigger they only did little issues just like the older actresses. And I used to be like, oh they’re positively doing slightly little bit of an impersonation of them slightly bit, and I believed it was so good. It made me assume like, wow, they’re such good actors. ’trigger they’re clearly making an attempt to be this different individual, a youthful model of this individual. So anyway. This film didn’t do this, in my view. Shifting on. 

Elsie: Okay. The following trivia is Thora Birch, who performs Teeny, had by no means ridden a motorcycle earlier than this film. That’s so humorous, I like tales like that. 

Emma: Robert Pattinson, that was among the trivia from Twilight. I feel we learn on the podcast. 

Elsie: That he didn’t drive a automotive.

Emma: And he needed to be taught there within the wet space. Yeah, to must be taught to experience a motorcycle after which do it in a film. I imply, I suppose you’d be very motivated to be taught. She regarded nice. 

Elsie: I suppose, yeah, to be honest there’s most likely like all the time one thing like Emma by no means actually discovered to make use of curler skates. 

Emma: I nonetheless don’t understand how. 

Elsie: After which for me, I can’t bear in mind what my factor can be, however there’s most likely positively one thing that I simply by no means discovered that I’m simply too afraid of. 

Emma: Are you able to ski?

Elsie: Undoubtedly can’t ski. 

Emma: There you go. There’s one thing. I can’t actually ski both. So in case you needed to be in a film the place they’re like, you’re gonna ski previous the digital camera now, you’d be like, nope. I don’t understand how to try this. Okay. Samantha’s little sister within the film was performed by Demi Moore’s oldest daughter Rumor Willis. 

Elsie: Oh, that’s candy. 

Emma: Isn’t that cute? 

Elsie: That’s very cute. 

Emma: I couldn’t even inform in the course of the film, after which I really feel like I noticed some promo factor or one thing that was like, right here they’re years later or no matter. ’trigger I used to be making an attempt to search for extra treehouse footage, primarily. And I used to be like, oh, it’s her daughter. I didn’t even discover in the course of the film. She’s so little within the film. However I used to be like, oh cute. That’s cute. I don’t even know if that they had the identical days of capturing, most likely not ’trigger the older actresses are like by no means in photographs with the younger ones. However I nonetheless was like, that’s actually cute that they’re each in the identical film.

Elsie: That’s very cute. Okay. Marlene King wrote the film when she was 10 years outdated and stated it was about her group of associates rising up. That’s cute. I like that. 

Emma: I like that. Yeah. So cool. 

Elsie: When she was 10 years outdated, although. So that you’re making a number of predictions concerning the future. That truly makes their older selves make extra sense to me. I feel I settle for them extra now.

Emma: As a result of they appear extra generic slightly bit?

Elsie: Yeah, like extra of a visualization of how life can be than an actual individual. 

Emma: Yeah. ’trigger I did really feel just like the youthful variations, there have been a number of form of particular issues and particular issues that didn’t even go wherever essentially. They didn’t all the time ladder as much as one thing larger, which to me felt very true to life. It’s not a memoir essentially, however nonetheless I beloved it. It did really feel very very similar to childhood to me. So it kinda is sensible to me {that a} child really wrote it as a result of it actually felt like rising up and it was good. So good for her. 

Elsie: Good for her. I find it irresistible. Okay, fee this film from zero to 5 seances. Okay, I’m going to provide it a 4 out of 5. I feel if Rosie O’Donnell’s character would’ve had a popping out, I’d’ve given it a 5. I feel it wanted that.

Emma: Thought it was gonna occur.

Elsie: I used to be ready for it then it didn’t. I felt prefer it was gonna be a fantastic second, after which it simply form of didn’t, in order that’s the one flaw I can discover in it although. I feel it was very cute.
