It’s December already and I’m happy to announce that it was Stephen Sondheim’s year. Noah Baumbach included his songs twice in Marriage Story, Johnson in Knives Out, Philips in Joker, Jennifer Aniston sang him on The Morning Show. It was Sondheim’s year and definitely Adam Driver’s. Anyway, press play.
