Ashley Rodbro: "Last Christmas" (Wham!). I heard the song for the first time when I was a freshman in high school, right after my best friend got her driver's license, and we would drive around town and try to find it on the radio. Hearing it makes me really nostalgic and reminds me of being home for the holidays, plus who doesn't love all the 80s hairstyles in the music video?!
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
