I'm not saying it is great and not saying it is as terrible as the previews made it look. It is an interesting enough biopic with some fun from Sarah Silverman and Fred Armisen. And I think we can do a lot worse in what Hollywood has to offer. I like that it knows that this was a show and not a real battle. This was a moment that women got an inch but there was a lot more fight…
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.

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.
