This is the 16th chapter of the Voices Film & TV Podcast.
This time I am joined by my brother Derek to discuss one of the greater films we’ve ever seen…The Natural.
We did this straight from memory, as we have consumed this film multiple times over the years…and it only gets better the more we watch it.
Derek also wrote a beautiful article on the film previously, you can find that here:
I have also made a few clips, posted them on Vimeo for you to digest some visual information on the film while listening.
This is a summary of roughly the first act of the film:
And this is the powerhouse finale to The Natural:
This is 100% pure American cinema, an homage to great sport of baseball that only a film made with such passion and love could bring me to relate to…as I’m just not a sports guy people.
I hope you enjoy.
