FELICITY JONES + EDDIE REDMAYNE REUNITE

When Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones last acted together they each got Oscar nominations and Redmayne won. That was for the Stephen Hawking story “The Theory of Everything.” Now they’ve reunited for “The Aeronauts” in which they play 19th century balloonists. “The Aeronauts” made its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival which is where John Horn caught up with them.  

FALL FILM FEST FRENZY

Between Telluride, Venice and now Toronto, film festivals are taking over the attention of the film industry these days. They're where some of the buzziest films are being screened including "Joker", "The Two Popes", "Waves" and "Marriage Story." But we'll have to wait for Greta Gerwig's "Little Women." Joining John Horn to discuss what's being screened at the fests is New York Times columnist Kyle Buchanan.

MODERN MARIACHI MAVENS
