Episode 06: The Proposition

This month, the Chicks take on 2005’s, The Proposition – starring Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone, Emily Watson, David Wenham, and Danny Huston with a small cameo by everyone’s favourite destroyer of dinner joviality and the War Doctor himself, John Hurt!

Here’s a spoiler, but it’s a WESTERN, which is definitely new and exciting territory for the Chicks. We chat about levels of violence, our very inaccurate understanding Australia and its history (Sorry, Australia!), flogging etiquette and the unfortunate challenge of matching black fabrics.

SHOW CORRECTION: The Chicks (ok, Kristine) got her Watson’s confused. For the record, it’s Emily Watson in this flick, not Emma. There is no magic, Weasleys, or Gryffindors in this flick.
