In Bed with Alia Shawkat: Broadly Meets

Alia Shawkat won Best Actress at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival for her role in “Duck Butter". This film is very personal to Alia, as she co-wrote it with its director Miguel Arteta. In it she plays an anxiety-ridden actress who has trouble getting close to anyone and is pushed out of her comfort zone when she falls for a free-spirited artist.

The two women decide to bypass the getting to know each other stage of a relationship by spending 24 hours having sex and trying to be radically honest with one another. In this episode of Broadly Meets, we climb in bed with Alia to talk about women’s sexuality and how her personal experiences informed the writing of Duck Butter.

Honestly, I thought Duck Butter wouldn't be worth my time because of how the trailer made the movie out to be. But hearing Alia talk about it makes me want to see it now, especially since I have issues of being intimate & completely open with people I'm interested in.

Alia is such a wonderfully open and honest individual. I wish even 2% more of Hollywood took her tack on things; We'd be in a better world of media.

Love this girl, she seems like such a deep thinker and her mesmerizing quirkiness makes all her work so interesting! From what I know of Duck Butter it sounds like its going to be another hit for her and LGBTQI.

I swear we are twins spiritually.
And yes honesty and truth within yourself. And vulnerability in that way is the much attractive turn on to me. And this movie seems so awesome and normalizing sex and female sexuality outside of the gaze of heterosexual males, and or ideas/ideals is AWESOME. I can't want to see this movie.

Basic Pee tests can't tell how much of a drug you're taking. It's either positive or negative.
It can be sent to a lab. But the way she said that she did another test, suggested these were on the spot tests.

There are so many people who run when things get real. It's always a good topic for a movie. I'd much rather watch movies like this than all the overly blown out superhero flicks that I can't imagine any real human relating to.
