E355 - Popcorn and Power Chairs 7 - The Whale

Episode Notes

In E355, we have another installment of Popcorn and Power Chairs.  In this one, I wanted to review The Brendan Fraser led Drama/Horror (horror according to Google) The Whale.  I had a lot of feelings about how fatness and disability were portrayed in this one, and I often found the ableism overwhelming alongside the fatphobia.  Why didn’t they just hire a fat person?  Or a disabled person? And other questions… like who was it made for?  I don’t know if this was the way we should have welcomed Brendan Fraser back.  What did you think?
