Why on earth are two child psychiatrists talking about the 2019 Academy Awards? It’s not just for fun, even though it’s fun, too. But, rather, because there is so much in this year’s nominated films – from Black Panther to Bohemian Rhapsody – that relates to coming of age in today’s America. We live in a time of such cultural turmoil and a search to rediscover identity as a country and as individuals. Many of these films are opportunities to help us reflect on these issues, in addition to enjoying the actors, action, and great entertainment.

Tune in to this special episode of Shrinking It Down as Gene and Steve discuss the Oscar-nominated films and how movies can help us to feel connected and make sense of the world.
