#CruiseClub #029 – Lions for Lambs (2007)
By this point in Tom Cruise’s career — we’re barely over a decade away from catching up — there are very few surprises left. We’ve seen (and love!) just about everything that’s coming up for the rest of this show’s run. Then, there’s Lions for Lambs, a movie neither of us had ever seen, and neither of us knew anything about. What a world this is that still holds some secrets! Joining us on this episode is resident Meryl Streep expert Michael Domanico of the Not Her Again podcast. It’s especially fitting that Michael joins us for this episode, as Cruise and Meryl square off for one-third of Lions for Lambs… and Michael had never seen this movie either! In this episode, we talk about whether the three story structure worked, whether or not the movie stuck its political (or apolitical?) landing, and why people haven’t been casting Tom Cruise as a politician for years. He’s born to play the part!
