i think first is the high cost of the child care. the average child care cost in the u.s. rapgs around 8,000 to $10,000, which is a significant percentage of many take home earnings. >> right. >> so that continues to be one. second is inflexible work arrangements ninkt many companies award inoffice work culture which can be particularly punishing to work families. and the third say lack of poll stois support working families in the u.s., particularly our lack of national paid parental leave. >> which is a global issue. one of the few countries in the western world that don't have policies to support parents, particularly in the early years of life.
4:58 am
and then also support child care. as you match families with companies that might support the lifestyle they want to lead as parents, it's being called a lifestyle, what are some of the policies you're looking for in companies that support parents? >> certainly benefits. companies that offer child care subsidies that can help alleviate that burden is really important. family leave is very important. fertility benefits, maternal health benefits are all really very important. i would say the most important thing is really respect. we find so many users on our platform just don't feel respected at work. so we're really looking for the companies that we work where are that we partner with to really respect the individuals that they're bringing in the workforce and don't just talk about diversity and inclusion but live those values every day. >> that's so important because it's not just policies that companies have that can really help women balance work and life, but it's those subtle things like respect. women feeling valued even if they may not have as much time as they used to.

5:23 am
juicy almost. and she looked at me and she's like, this is why. and that's a lesson that i never algorithm. >> when forgot. >> when he was just 14 years old, he left home to pursue a cycling career and got a job in a kitchen to make extra money. >> i was a prep cook but i had an amazing chef. he said i know you're here for a paycheck but let me show you how to make chicken, soup, how to make a sue play, aouffle all th. in the begin weighing was like, it's okay. he said no, i'm going to teach you. >> a serious cycling department when he was 22 made him reevaluate his career path. he reembraced his love of food. when he got an opportunity to interview at camden place in san

film released this past year. soon we'll see which films take home the top prize. you may have your own favorites, but here to share his, ones you may not have heard about is our favorite, mr. matt singer editor and shieff and film critic for the website welcome back. >> thank you. >> let's start with number five. >> yes, the writer. a lot of people might not have seen this movie but that's what we're here to do. >> movies i haven't seen. >> this is an incredible film that has an incredible behind the scenes story. the director met this real life rodeo rider brady and he was in this terrible rodeo accident and had he this horrible injury. and she decided to cast him in a movie about his own life. >> oh, wow. >> where he has to sort of grapple with this choice that he really faced. give up his dream of being a rodeo rider or maybe give up his life because this injury is so serious that if he kept riding he could really die. and as you can see, it's a
5:32 am
gorgeous movie. >> i'm sold. i'm sold on that one. >> it's beautiful. >> number four, sequel doesn't always happen, missing impossible fallout. >> i like this one. >> how many franchises are still getting better after six movies and 22 years. >> yeah. >> but mission impossible, i think, the think the last one was the best one. i don't know how tom cruise is going to top this one where he learned how to be a helicopter pilot do his own helicopter chase stunts. he's going to have to train to be an astronaut and then go to the international space station which he might do. >> i was going to skbla that's what what's great about these movies, anything is possible. >> top three in your third favorite is a sci-fi hor row film annihilation. >> i think it this is the one i thought about the most afterwards. you have natalie portman as a scientist. she goes into this weird place called the shimmer to try to figure out what's happening in there. and the stuff she finds is some
5:33 am
of like the most horrifying nightmarish imaginary i have seen in a movie in a long time. i've had actual nightmares about this movie, so how's that for a selling point. annihilation, it will traumatize you and haunt your dreams. >> jaws did that for a lot of people. >> that did. >> first runner up on your list is? >> private life in the say netflix movie. that's one of the big stories of the year for moveries vis is netflix. they used to be this place for a lot of junk, frankly. and now they have all these fascinating wonderful movies like this one which is about a subject a lot of people, include my own family deal with and they don't talk about which is infertility. this couple are desperate to get pregnant and they can't do it. i can tell you from experience this movie is so painfully accurate and honest that no one else would have made it but netflix did. and they deserve credit for that gray great cast. >> how about the faif reit. >> maybe this is my favourite because i love the bad pun of
5:34 am
saying "the favourite" is my favorite. this is a period piece about basically how government works and how everyone in it is selfish and dumb, some of them. so it has no relevance whatsoever to the world of 2018. it has amazing performances, olivia colman, emma stone, rachel weisz, they're all sort of fighting for control. i loved it. >> what are you looking forward to next year? >> number one right now has to be us. that's the next film from jordan peele. we just got trailer for it. if you loved get out, it looks very similar. sort of a horror film with social commentary in there. it looks terrific. >> it's like you said, with casts anything. matt singer thank you so much. movies to look to or movies you're on board with already. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
