Director Jason Reitman’s ‘Young Adult’ and ‘Thank You For Smoking’


It seemed appropriate to kick off Sound on Sight’s third year of podcasting with a Montreal-born filmmaker – even if he’s more or less associated with Toronto. Jason Reitman’s been slowly getting more serious over the years, progressing from 2005’s light DC-centric satire Thank You For Smoking, all the way to his latest, the pitch-black sorta-comedy Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron as a successful-but-bitter writer. Ricky D, Justine Smith and Simon Howell are here to talk about both films, and Reitman’s career as a whole.
