Wayne’s 4 x 2: Broker, Julia, and MORE!

Wayne is back for another week with his more great recommendations for everything movies, music, and television. If you’re looking for something to watch for the long weekend, Wayne has you covered.


Four reviews.

Two minutes each.


Here’s what he had for us.


Film: Broker

Broker is a Korean-language film from Japanese Writer-Director Kore-eda Hirokazu, and stars Song Kang-ho best known for his role in Boon Jong-ho’s Parasite. The film follows two brokers who take babies left in anonymous church adoption boxes and sell them to affluent families who can’t have children of their own. They are surprised when a mother catches them in the act, wanting to make sure her child finds a good home. As they travel together across the country, pursued by two police officers trying to break up their adoption racket, the group form their own found family along the way.

Broker is available in-cinemas.

Album: The Price of Progress The Hold Steady

The Hold Steady is a favourite of Wayne’s so it is no surprise that he is very excited about the release of their ninth studio album, The Price of Progress. The Brooklyn-based band follows their tradition of writing character-driven lyrics underscored by anthem-like music. Each song focuses on a new down-on-their-luck character, and encourages you to feel their plight.

The Price of Progress is available on Spotify and Bandcamp.


Series: Julia

From HBO, Julia follows the career of home-cooking icon Julia Child, featuring an all-star cast including Sarah Lancashire, David Hyde-Pierce, and Bebe Neuwirth. Julia opens with Child pitching what would become her revolutionary television show which would create the cooking show genre, and follows its meteoric rise.

Julia is available on Binge and Foxtel.

Album: The Record Boygenius

The ambitiously titled The Record is the highly-anticipated debut album from American indie-rock group Boygenius. The supergroup found themselves drawn to each other as they were all garnering early-career acclaim, almost forming a group by accident. Where their original EP was them “falling in love”, The Record is the reaffirmation of their affection and friendship – the music of a group who genuinely love each other.


The Record is available of Spotify and Bandcamp.
