On this Movie-Go-Round New to Two, David introduced Brett and Nicole to a Christmas-themed anime film from 2003, Satoshi Kon’s Tokyo Godfathers. The emotional journey of three homeless people on Christmas in pursuit of an abandoned baby’s family spurred discussion of the genre of anime, context that gets lost in translation when films are subtitled, a bizarre subplot with the Yakuza, and so much more. How did Brett and Nicole enjoy this nontraditional Christmastime tale? Tune in now and find out!
