Stanley Tucci, the Toni Collette of Men (QR 031)

March 15, 2022

There’s a lot of looking back in this episode. Kinda weird how that turns out sometimes. What are we looking back at? Our favourite butch-femme pairings, the age gap romance discussion from the previous episode, and the evergreen Evelyn Hugo discussion.

Kris and Tara also pose the impossible question: is Stanley Tucci the Toni Collette of men…OR is Toni Collette the Stanley Tucci of women?

If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!

Official Recommendations

This week, Kris recommends the film Supernova (2020). Sam and Tusker are traveling across England in their old RV to visit friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with dementia two years ago, their time together is the most important thing they have. Kris reflects on how representation doesn’t always have to be happy, that it’s important to showcase the difficult and sad realities of losing someone you love to dementia.

Tara recommends Truth and Measure by Roslyn Sinclair. What began life as a 300K word Devil Wears Prada fanfic has been reborn as a superb duology, The Carlisle Series. Jules Moretti is personal assistant to the icy fashion magazine mogul, Vivian Carlisle. Their professional relationship takes an unexpected turn towards romance when Vivian learns she’s pregnant and Jules is the one person who has her back.
