CinemaJaw 554 – Jennifer Reeder – Turning Red, Fresh – Top 3 Movie Recluses


Review(s): Turning Red, Fresh Celebrating This Month: Sandra Bullock Sandra Bullock movie Trivia Sponsored by: Overcast After the past couple of years, I think we can all relate to what it’s like to be a recluse on some level. This week on the podcast, in honor of our guest’s latest movie, we explore reclusive characters in film. These are the shut-ins, the hermits, the sometimes misanthropes and watching them come out of their shells (or not) has been cinematic gold since the beginning. Joining us is a woman who, thankfully for us cinephiles, is no recluse! Jennifer Reeder is a director. She’s been on the show before and since that time she was named as one of the Top 20 Filmmakers to Watch by Best Picture director Bong Joon Ho. Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, has announced the release for Jennifer Reeder’s latest thriller Night’s End is set for Thursday, March 31st. The feature is Chicago through and through, with a cast led by Academy Award Nominee Michael Shannon, Chicago Fire stars Daniel Kyri and Geno Walker, to award-winning Chicago screenwriter Brett Neveu, the Ring producer (and friend of the show) Neal Edelstein. If you don’t already have Shudder, following these filmmakers is a darn good reason to get it! In addition to jawing with Jennifer, we have a pair of reviews for your eardrums. Pixar’s latest Turning Red, and Sebastian Stan horror flick Fresh. So go ahead and stay indoors, out of the public eye if you wish, be a recluse… just listen to this ‘Jaw!

Women Leaders in Church History | An Interview with Jennifer Reeder

Leading Saints Podcast

Jenny Reeder is a historian and writer, currently the nineteenth-century women’s history specialist at the Church History Department in the publications division, and was one of the first historians hired to specialize in women’s history. She holds a PhD in American history from George Mason University, specializing in women’s history, religious history, memory, and material culture. She also holds degrees from Brigham Young University, Arizona State University, and New York University. She served a mission in Italy, and has served three times as a ward Relief Society president, including when she was in graduate school and fighting leukemia. Jenny has collaborated on several books about Latter-day Saint women's history and is the author of First: The Life and Faith of Emma Smith.Highlights2:50 Writing her book about Emma Smith. Her goal was to write about her as a pillar of the Restoration and a significant founder of the Church with Joseph, and to make her a real woman and show how complicated her life was, her commitment, and her heartbreak.5:20 So many members of the Church have been influenced to believe she was a fallen person because she did not come west with the other pioneers, but she retained her testimony and hers is a story of redemption.7:45 Jenny's experience with cancer while serving as a Relief Society president during her time in graduate school at George MasonParticipating in ward council from her hospital bedVisiting with less-active people and learning to receive serviceSending emails and physical cards to people as she was promptedFinding her purpose outside of "not dying"15:15 Serving is an opportunity to learn, serve, and receive revelation in way you haven't before, and this can be a blessing in a difficult time.19:00 The goals of RS were to provide relief and save souls. She found relief for herself as she provided relief to others, and came to understand the Atonement on a deeper level.21:00 Developing relationships that continue: maintaining relationships from her old ward has been powerful for everyone as they have rallied together to support each other through difficult times.23:00 The Church was never really organized until the Relief Society was organized. Having women involved is significant and they have Priesthood authority in their stewardship. The most beneficial experience is when they are recognized for that leadership and allowed to do what they can.27:00 Emma's instructions in Doctrine and Covenants Section 25Emma struggled with her role to teach and had to learn how to leadIn Nauvoo Relief Society, you had to apply for membership.

Jennifer Reeder’s Newest Friend: Emma Smith

The Center's Studio Podcast

On the occasion of the publication of her latest book, First: The Life and Faith of Emma Smith, historian Jennifer Reeder talks about a complex 19th century figure in LDS history, an Elect Lady, Presidentress, and key participant in the restoration of the gospel. The discussion includes surprising finds by Reeder including Emma’s bi-racial family, her largely unknown skills, her turmoil regarding polygamy, and most importantly, her life of loss and service. Emma’s decision to remain in Nauvoo as other Saints moved to the West set up an environment of tension in the 19th century that is being replaced today with companion and understanding. Music for the episode is Emma’s final aria, sung by Jennifer Welch Babidge, “You Are Like the Sun,” from the opera, The Book of Gold, composed by Murray Boren.Support the show (https://www.centerforlatterdaysaintarts.org/donate)

Jennifer Reeder: Emma Smith—Giving All That Is Required

All In

A thread of complexity is woven throughout the life of Emma Smith. Her love for her husband, the Prophet Joseph Smith, was enduring despite her struggles to understand his participation in polygamy. Her family was the most important thing to her, yet she suffered familial losses over and over again. She gave her all for the gospel of Jesus Christ but chose not to go west with the Saints. Many have asked, “Did Emma fall short?" This week, we talk with Jennifer Reeder, the author of the new biography, “First: The Life and Faith of Emma Smith," about why the answer to that question is no—Emma gave all that was asked of her. “The very thing that tears you to pieces is often the thing that means the most to you.” Show Notes 3:47- “I Think She Is Speaking to Me”11:33- A Life of Loss and Starting Over17:13- Did Emma Fall Short?19:45- “Joseph, Joseph, Joseph”21:54- Complementary Partners27:36- Polygamy37:04- Emma’s Family’s Concerns41:41- Stories of Ongoing Restoration46:57- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
