The Little Engine That Cold

Chris Evans survives a second Ice Age by boarding the futuristic train Snowpiercer in writer/director Bong Joon-Ho’s 2013 precursor to Oscar winner Parasite.  Will the Captain America star be seen as a superhero or a savage for leading fellow stowaways Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) on a violent siege of First Class cars to recover their stolen children from Tilda Swinton?  You’ll get your ticket punched when you donate for this final entry in Now Playing’s century-long, Gold Level dystopian retrospective.  Listen Now!
