The Complete Elaine May 1: A New Leaf

Matt and Travis kick off the new season of The Complete with Elaine May’s debut film. We talk about the tragic underrepresentation of women in the director’s chair during Hollywood’s “golden” and “New” eras, along with May’s unique path to her own career as a filmmaker, before discussing the many charms and sophisticated execution of the very dark comedy of A New Leaf.
