The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interviews With “May December” Star Charles Melton & Screenwriter Samy Burch

May December” had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, receiving positive reviews for Todd Haynes’ direction, the performances from Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore, and Charles Melton, and the writing from Samy Burch. Shortly after its screening at the New York Film Festival (and free of the writer’s strike), Samy Burch spoke with Ema Sasic about her experience working on the film. And a few weeks later, after his Gotham win for Outstanding Supporting Performance (and a day before he would go on to win the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor alongside Burch’s win for Best Screenplay), Charles Melton gave me a few moments of his time to dig deep into the character of Joe Yoo. The film is now streaming on Netflix and is up for your consideration for the 96th Academy Awards in all eligible categories. Please be sure to check out the film before listening as SPOILERS are discussed. Thank you, and enjoy!
