    I wanted this to be as good as the preview and the posters made it look. It was fine with some great acting from Glover, Cookie and the kid but that script was weak. And after Atomic Blonde and John Wick, I expect more from the violence.
    BUT BUT—no one mentioned that Cookie was a woman. That was incidental. So that’s something.

    And introducing Julie Brown...

    Geena Davis really didn’t want Goldblum’s baby in the 80’s. Why didn’t anyone tell me what a fox he was back then? I’d consider an alien baby with him if 80’s alien Jeff Bridges wasn’t available

    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.
