“Language Lessons” premiered at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival and has been steadily growing in buzz ever since, thanks to its positive audience reception and strong reviews. The film now releases this weekend from Shout Factory! and maybe the most wholesome movie made during the pandemic, showing the platonic friendship and affection two people have for each other during the most difficult time of their lives. Making her feature directorial debut (also writing and starring), Natalie Morales works alongside co-writer and co-star Mark Duplass, all entirely over zoom to bring us something special. The two were kind enough to take some time to chat with us about making the film during the pandemic, their real-life friendship, and more! Take a listen down below, enjoy and be sure to check out the movie, now playing in theaters.
