The Cult Film Club is back, closing out the summer with one of their favorite films in the "comfort cult" genre, 1996's Big Night! Starring Tony Shalhoub, Stanley Tucci, Minnie Driver, Isabella Rossellini, and the incomparable Ian Holm, the film is a slight departure from the style of movie we tend to cover on the show, but it's an obscure pick that is a very high recommend. In the episode we talk about the movie, the slew of character actors, the 90s era independent movie boom, and food. We talk a lot about food. So grab a bottle of your favorite wine, order in some of the best Italian fare you can find on Uber Eats and join us as we dig into the feast that is Big Night.
