Heather and Paul discuss two old films about the world's oldest profession. First: VIVRE SA VIE, Jean-Luc Godard's 1962 film starring Anna Karina as a beautiful young Parisian woman who dreams of becoming an actress but slides into prostitution instead; then, PRETTY WOMAN, Garry Marshall's 1990 Cinderella fantasy, the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time (!), starring Julia Roberts as a Hollywood Boulevard hooker and Richard Gere as the wealthy client who falls in love with her. A trip to see THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, or a trip to see LA TRAVIATA: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on FIVE CORNERS, NYMPHOMANIAC: VOLUME II, and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE.
