Rachel and Lauren discuss Harrison Ford's 2002 film K-19: Widowmaker, co-starring Peter Sarsgaard, and Liam Neeson, and directed by Oscar Winner Kathryn Bigelow. After a discussion of accents, the actors, and love of K-Bigs, the ladies spend the second half of the episode talking about their favorite female directors, with special focus on Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman), Ava Duvernay (Selma, 13th and A Wrinkle In Time ), and Leslye Headland (Bachelorette and Sleeping with Other People). Lauren also takes a moment to talk about some early history of female film directors, Ida Lupino, and the Hayes Code as a road block to more women behind the scenes.
