This movie is so completely 80’s sequel, it is such a fun delight to come back to.
I checked into my London hotel and who is on my tv? Rupert Penry-Jones! I’ve loved him every since Ryan and I going back to our Blockbuster days and seeing Virtual Sexuality which is a lovely film despite a title that sounds like a Skinamax classic. And Rupert is still pretty hot.
This was a bit made for British tv in terms of quality but I appreciate the timing of it all when I’m fighting jet lag.
Beautiful shots, dialogue and emotional drive. Having just seen Handmaiden, these two movies couldn't have been more different yet the stories were both framed similarly in three acts and focus on the taboo of same sex couplings. It jogs a lot of memories of pivotal moments from your childhood that shape you socially and sexually.
“Whatever you imagine your life is going to be like, know your life is not going to be anything like that.”
This is my favorite thing in 2017 so far. I'm a huge Beginners fan so I couldn't wait for this to be released in Chicago. Maybe it was the hopeless single mom vibe that really hit home. Not quite bohemian but accidentally the effect which my mom floundered in most of our lives together. Annette Benning is so perfectly lost, vulnerable and understated. It was breathtaking to watch. And there is nothing cooler than Greta Gerwig trying to make her way.
