This is our 50th episode of Find Your Film, and it’s hard to cite a film that entertained us as much as I Care A Lot. Co-host Bruce Purkey calls the movie “deliciously evil,” Eric Holmes says the flick appealed to his “lizard brain,” and I simply loved it. Show breakdown of our podcast as well as I Care Lot details are below!

Rosamund Pike’s celebrated career includes stellar work in Gone Girl and most recently Radioactive. With I Care A Lot the Oscar nominated actress is the power and money hungry Marla Grayson. A court appointed guardian for numerous elderly folk, Marla uses their assets for her own coffers. sharing the spoils with her partner in crime Fran (an equally game Eiza González).


Dianne Wiest is Jennifer Peterson, Marla’s latest mark who is understandably distressed about living in a care facility against her will. Peter Dinklage is a gangster who throws a wrench into Marla’s plans, and Chris Messina is the smug lawyer who believes he has the upper hand on our anti-heroine.

Directed with brio by J Blakeson, I Care A Lot is a must see feature, but the big caveat is that some viewers may be turned off by the sheer unlikablity and sociopathic behavior by almost everyone in this story! We wanted to keep the I Care A Lot conversation going so we recorded a separate audio track for Spoilers!! Once you see I Care A Lot, take a listen as we have our own ending options for the film!!
