Rank #1: Paper Friends

Podcast cover
Read more

Syd & Lex review "Paper Friends" from filmmakers Marti Hines and Jasmine Greene, starring Sharon Leal, Dorian Missick, Robinne Lee, Jason Olive, and Benita Nall. Syd loves this one-night plot, and Lex can't get enough of Character Study film. This week's "Who Came to Act" award is a tight race, but there is a clear winner. (And Lex has a special message for Robinne Lee at then end of the episode.)
