On this week’s podcast, we’re sharing the Q&A from our sneak preview screening of The Tale, the first narrative feature from acclaimed documentarian Jennifer Fox.

The film stars Laura Dern as Fox herself, and it is based on Fox’s own life story of reckoning with trauma after her mother unearthed a childhood short story recounting her first sexual relationship.

The Tale premieres on HBO this Saturday, May 26th. Jennifer Fox joined us for a Q&A after our recent preview screening, sponsored by HBO. Listen below or click here to subscribe to The Close-Up on iTunes.
