Live from Brooklyn, the gabbers discuss Ava DuVernay’s new adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, based on the novel by Madeleine L’Engle. Is the film as big a misfire as the early reviews suggested, or is it more interesting than it’s being given credit for? Then, the panel talks about color, including where color trends come from, our dependence on Pantone, and whether it’s even possible to articulate color’s importance in our lives. Finally, in honor of the Culture Gabfest’s 10th anniversary, the gabbers welcome Chris Molanphy onstage to quiz them about past segments of the show.
