Episode Notes

Matthew and Steven are joined once again by the marvellous Hermione Flavia of wildfiremotionpictures.com. This time we get dewy eyed over Ghibli's sort of last movie... at least for now, When Marnie Was There. We laugh, we cry, and we take the time to wonder whether troubled Anna and her ghostly bff Marnie have a little something going on after a rather romantic session in a rowboat. "I love you! I love you Marnie!"
