1:27:12We're back! It's a Thanksgiving miracle! This week we're discussing the 2017 film The Stolen, starring some people that they found on the street and this is their first acting job ever. Okay sorry, Alice Eve, Jack Davenport, and that creepy guy who plays Riff Raff in The Rocky Horror Picture Show are in it. My mistake. Anyway, Enjoy??
1:20:59Is it The Witch? Or The VVitch? Either way, we're excited to share our extra spooky Halloween episode with you! This All Hallow's Eve, we've decided to tackle 2015's atmospheric horror, The Witch. Written and directed by Robert Eggers and starring Anya Taylor-Joy in her breakout role, alongside Kate Dickie and Ralph Ineson. So go on, would'st thou like to give it a listen? Would'st thou like to live deliciously?
1:50:44Welcome to our first spooky Halloween episode of October 2021! This year we're starting with 2004's incredibly accurate and period-appropriate action horror film Van Helsing, starring Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Roxburgh, and David Wenham. This week's episode includes dramatic flailing and crying, a multitude of questions about vampire reproduction, and a werewolf man who cannot stop himself from being flung into rivers. Enjoy!
1:32:02In our final installment of Kiera-Knightley-A-Thon, we're reviewing 2012's Anna Karenina, based on the Leo Tolstoy novel and starring Kiera Knightley, Jude Law, Matthew Macfadyen. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Alicia Vikander, Michelle Dockery, Cara Delevingne, and a whole slew of other people who deserved better than this trainwreck of a film. Do you like chaotic transitions, jewelry, and stylized theater set-pieces? Are you a pretentious English major? Guess what! This movie is for you!
1:46:12Welcome to Eyre on Air's second installment of Kiera-Knightley-a-thon! This week we're bringing you chit chat about 2007's Joe Wright film Atonement, starring Kiera Knightley, James McAvoy, Saoirse Ronan, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Vanessa Redgrave. It's a beautiful and moody World War II film based on an Ian McEwan novel where some rich people moon around looking rich and writing dirty letters to each other and getting cock-blocked by 12 year olds. Fun! Enjoy!
1:29:56Welcome to Eyre on Air's celebration of one of the great ladies of the period drama world, that's right, it's time for Kiera-Knightley-A-Thon! We're kicking things off with one of Knightley's more recent period pieces, 2018's Colette, based on the life of French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette. It's got bisexuals, trans women, and a really loose Louisiana debutante! Colette stars Kiera Knightley, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, and Denise Gough. Enjoy!
2:07:47Against the wishes of Mel Gibson, the English army, and Spectrum Internet, we have returned with a brand new episode. In perhaps one our of most chaotic episodes yet, we discuss the 1995 blockbuster of inaccuracies, Braveheart. It stars the aforementioned Mel Gibson, Brendan Gleeson, James Cosmo, and some other vaguely Scottish sounding people. Prepare yourself for two hours of Jenn's rage, Kelsey's lack of internet, and Joe's usual disdain.
The Personal History of David Copperfield
1:53:00Two good movies in a row? On Eyre on Air?? We are #blessed. This week we're chatting about the movie The Personal History of David Copperfield, starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, and Ben Wishaw. And honestly, despite the fact that it's based on a Dicken's novel, it's an absolute gem that got lost in the chaos of 2020. Plus, you know you need your Dev Patel fix since The Green Knight just came out...

1:06:11Happy Fourth of July! As a special treat, since our release schedule has been pretty unreliable lately, we dusted off the old Lincoln audio from July 2018 and gave it a little fixin' up and are re-releasing it for y'all for July 4th 2021! If you didn't listen to the original, this is us talking about the 2012 Daniel Day-Lewis biopic of President Abraham Lincoln, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring a shitload of other famous actors like Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, and Joseph Gordon Levitt. Give it a listen!
