His joy, his pain, his struggles. Dressing like him, sounding like him, speaking like him, and singing like him. Fri, 01 Jan 2016 08:00:00 GMT Peter Canavese Interview: Jeff Nichols…Midnight Special…3/21/2016 http://grouchoreviews.com/interviews/437 /interviews/437 How inclined we are as parents to project ourselves on our kids: what we want them to be, what we think they should be.
