Robin Wright and Demián Bichir join the show to discuss their new film, and her directorial debut, Land. Land is a gorgeous, subtle film, and an impressive debut feature from Wright. They both have now in fact sat in the director’s chair on occasion, and so we discuss some of the lessons they took from directors while acting, and the major do’s and don’ts of the job. We also dig into the film’s gorgeous cinematography from Bobby Bukowski and why Robin chose to shoot an image much taller than your typical widescreen.

Jake and Kevin take some time to ask Sean about the surreal ride of writing and releasing an actual book, and the response to it so far.
