Gangs of New York (w/ Griffin Newman & David Sims)

This week, Lauren and Nicole are joined by very special guests Griffin Newman and David Sims (Blank Check) to debrief Scorsese’s 2002 film Gangs of New York starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cameron Diaz. Beloved by some and missing-the-mark for others, the group discusses this early-aughts epic while also getting into Lauren’s childhood production of Les Misérables, the unique and powerful smell of 1860’s New York, as well as officially define what an iPhone Face is.
