Mock Squid Soup: October Trivia Teaser


Today, for this month's edition of Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints about their film choice for the month.  All are welcome to guess, of course.  My three clues:

- The movie is 96 minutes long.  All but about three of those minutes are filmed in the same room.

- Sonia Sotomayor claims the film as an important influence on her life.

- The movie was recently parodied by Amy Schumer.

Any guesses?  Society reviews will be posted next Friday, August 14th.  See you then.  Meanwhile, please visit my fellow cinephiles today:

  11. All filmed in the same room? That's an amazingly skilled director! Can't wait!

    1. Certainly not always the same angle, though. Shot variation is both thoughtful and effective. It is, by any standard, a brilliantly made film.
