Episode 3 – Anniversaries & Watching Movies

Sorry for the delay in getting this episode out. Lizzie caught a terrible cold and then came down with a horrendous stomach bug!

In this episode…

  • We chat about Karen Gillan’s first feature length film, The Party’s Just Beginning
  • It seems to have polarised the critics as there’s both good and less favourable reviews. We are keen to see it, but are worried that the content is too graphic & crass for survivors of suicide loss to watch?
  • Lizzie shares her own tips for getting through anniversaries, and discusses how they have been for her over the years
  • The resource is a page from a now defunct website called 1000 Deaths which lists movies with suicides in along with a rating system for content detail. Using this and a page on Wikipedia you will be able to plan which movies are safe to watch and which ones you’d like to avoid.

NB: The blog posts about anniversaries mentioned in this episode can be found here.

The music in the podcast is Write My Name by Mega Beats.

Please get in touch and share your thoughts on the show. Your comments can either be read out with your name attached or be kept anonymous. It’s up to you. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for listening!

The next episode is coming on 11th March.

Our guest will be Susan Auerbach who is a double survivor of suicide loss – she lost her father in the 80s and her son Noah in 2013.
