Sophia Takal Talks Female Directors In Hollywood

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Rachel Handler and Teo Bugbee interview filmmaker and actress Sophia Takal. We kick things off by interviewing Takal about her new movie, Always Shine, a psychological thriller that hits theaters this weekend and stars Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald as friends whose mutual jealousies and resentments bubble up during a weekend getaway to Big Sur. We also dig into this week’s Lady Problem — Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy’s assertion that there are no female directors ready to helm a Star Wars film — and talk to Takal about whether she’s ever experienced similar discrimination. Later, we introduce a new segment called “How to Fuck with the Trump Administration This Week,” then solve a Lady Problem for Nicole, who caught her aunt shit-talking about her over DM (!).
