It's Episode 3 of In the Mood for Podcast, a weekly podcast by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Peter Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. The podcast has lasted three weeks and it's finally time to search for positivity: we discuss the prospect of a Before Sunrise/Set follow-up, and look back on some unexpectedly great feats of acting. It's just a shame that this week's theatrical releases leave us lacking cheer.

Reviews of this week's theatrical releases, here and across the pond: "The Woman in the Fifth"; "2 Days in New York"; "A Royal Affair"; "Rock of Ages"; "Red Lights"; "Elles" [10:40-1:01:40]

Closing Segment: "Cosmopolis," and our Top 3 Unexpectedly Great Performances (as inspired by Robert Pattinson in "Cosmopolis") [1:01:45-1:23:05]
