In this Movie-Go-Round Around the World, Nicole chose Let the Right One In. She, David, and Brett are joined by guest Terri Lynne Hudson (“Symbiotic” and “Conspiracy Theorist” on the OTV network) in taking apart and analyzing this Swedish vampire drama. What roles do gender and sexuality play in this movie centered around pre-teen children? How is it that the kids, especially Oskar, seem to be invisible to the adults sometimes? Will no one ever help poor, innocent Oskar? Is Oskar all that innocent? Is this whole town filled with psychopaths? And why does Eli avoid doing all the dirty work?
