It’s a very special episode of Fine Cut, Alyson is joined by four contributors to the anthology Awakenings: Stories of Bodies & Consciousness; Ann Kelly, Nina Lichtenstein, Sandell Morse and Kim Ruehl. They talk about the scene in Good Luck to you, Leo Grande in which the main character, Nancy (Emma Thompson) regards her naked body in the mirror with new understanding and respect. It’s a powerful scene and a wonderful conversation about sexual satisfaction, embodiment and knowing yourself, at any age. Please join us!
