In a joke that’s likely already been done to death, this is the best movie in the world.
Julie is a woman on the cusp of 30 who has excelled at everything academically, could have done anything, and is constantly second guessing her life decisions. I too am a 29 year old woman who has historically excelled academically across all subjects, could have done anything, and double guess my decisions daily. At 30 you’re supposed to have your career, relationship, life figured out. You’re supposed to be ready for motherhood. You are supposed to know what you are meant for, and where you are headed. What if you don’t?
You spend your whole life trying to make the right decisions. You never prepare for the things that actually go wrong.
Watched this in the theatre on a long weekend. I grinned ear to ear under my mask. I sobbed, drenching said mask. It’s the first movie in years that reminded me why I love movies. It’s the first film that I feel encapsulates what it’s like to be a millennial woman at this time. It reminded me of a Sally Rooney novel.
Couldn’t have picked a better movie as my 50th of 2022. Just so grateful for everything.
