In this episode, I welcome my first guest, Jesse Ataide, and we talk about our love for John Cromwell’s 1945 film, “The Enchanted Cottage.” It tells the story of Laura Pennington, a woman who struggles with her unattractiveness, and Oliver Bradford, a disfigured and disabled WWII veteran who fall in love in an old cottage that seems to have the magical power to transform the way they see each other. In our discussion, Jesse and I touch on themes of ugliness, queerness, disability, and much more.
