If you’re a child of the 80s or 90s, you might have made a mixtape or two. I did! Every week! The very joy of compiling songs to give your listeners the feels. That is displayed in the new coming-of-age drama “Mixtape.” Gemma Brooke Allen is Beverly, a young orphan girl living with her grandmother Gail (Julie Bowen). Her parents died in a car accident and the only connection Beverly has with them is a mixtape that belonged to her mother.
I spoke to both Bowen and Allen about the film, their roles, and making mixtapes.
“Mixtape” is now available to stream on Netflix.
