Ep34 - Jim Strouse, Screenwriter 'The Hollars,' 'The Winning Season,' 'People Places Things'
The Hollars screenwriter Jim Strouse is a storyteller who collects life’s intimate moments, weaving his films from the fabric of the everyday: the way a wife speaks to her husband, a simple haircut, a tire swing. The resulting films 'New York, I Love You,' 'The Winning Season,' and 'People Places Things,' can almost be said resemble family photo albums brought to life. In 'The Hollars,' directed by and starring John Krasinkski (The Office), John Hollar is forced to return to his hometown after news of his mother’s illness, and there reconnects with his dysfunctional family.
