Most of you by now have seen Judd Apatow’s masterpiece Freaks and Geeks. For those that haven’t, Freaks and Geeks was a shamefully short-lived comedy/drama that originally aired on NBC in 1999. Due to some poor ratings, only 18 episodes were ever produced. Freaks and Geeks was a show about “the other” people in high school.
How did I not see this until today? You’re about to watch Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim, The Thing, Death Proof) utter a number of seemingly random phrases into the camera while speaking French. You will also probably find this experience oddly hypnotic and enjoyable. Casque, directed by Mary’s husband Riley Stearns, reminds me of something a young Wes Anderson would make in his spare time. Looking forward to seeing what this duo whips up next.
