Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

This week on Cinebuds, we discuss the new short film from Wes Anderson, THE WONDERFUL STORY OF HENRY SUGAR — plus a few more. The popular director has taken four stories by Roald Dahl and created four short films that could be the most involved and star-studded audio books ever made.

SUGAR, the flagship film, stars Ralph Fiennes, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dev Patel and Ben Kingsley, telling the story of a man who can see without using his eyes. At several points, different characters take over the narrative, which sports the production design we've come to know from Anderson. Will dipping into the short-film realm be a new trend for directors? We’ll discuss that, the film and a couple other watchable things in the podcast, including what we ourselves have been watching lately.
