In this episode, I talk about David Lean’s 1945 film, “Brief Encounter.” Set in 1938, in pre-WWII England, it’s about Laura and Alec, two strangers who fall in love despite being married to other people. I talk about how the film centers a woman’s tormented inner life and why it’s such a romantic classic.
