Here’s a short teaser of the second episode of the 2023 edition of Uncut Gems Marathons where we will – one by one – re-trace the directorial career of John Cassavetes. In this episode of our 2023 John Cassavetes marathon, we take a look at the other of Cassavetes’ early studio efforts, A Child Is Waiting starring Burt Lancaster, Judy Garland and Gena Rowlands. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the naturalism of the kids hired to be in the film, the parental woes of boomers, the glee of watching kids perform in a school play, the different approaches to care and much more!
Tune in and enjoy!
