Meet Me in St. Louis ★★★★

We went out to watch this all-time charmer on Superbowl night at a theater in Wilmington holding one large family and two or three other couples. It was enchanting, and seeing the film so large and detailed really brought its rich humor and emotional complexity to the fore. I'm even more convinced than before that the final moments are just a fantasy for a wartorn audience, yearnings projected and almost impossible to bear in their sense of loss, now as (surely) then.
