episode 107: FFR 107: Noelle with The Bechdel Cast

Ho Ho Ho, and Happy Holidays! This week we present the Feminist Frequency x Bechdel Cast Christmas Crossover episode. Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante join Anita to discuss the Disney+ movie Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. Is this film an empowering #girlboss take on the holiday film genre? Well, maybe from the perspective of a “woke dad”. Listen in to hear our real thoughts on rule by divine monarchy, holiday puns, and at least 3 things this movie gets right.

Main Discussion on Noelle - 4:40
