OTHERHOOD - with Director Cindy Chupack
This is the season three premiere and one of the best episodes yet! Sarah & Samantha interview Cindy Chupack: Two time Emmy winner, three time Golden Globe winner, and director of the Netflix film OTHERHOOD. The film marks her directorial debut and is an honest and hilarious glimpse into the lives of three suburban moms, who after their kids leave home, are forced to find purpose in their lives beyond marriage and motherhood.  OTHERHOOD is a sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking look at 3 friends (ANGELA BASSETT, PATRICIA ARQUETTE, FELICITY HUFFMAN) who need to figure out who they are in the stage life beyond motherhood (‘otherhood’) which ultimately might be a beginning rather than an ending. Listen to this episode of The Life Changes Podcast and then be sure watch OTHERHOOD, streaming now on Netflix!
