    A Beautiful Mind

    ★★½

    As a mentally ill graduate student, I just found this kind of...off.

  • Little Miss Sunshine

    Little Miss Sunshine

    ★★★★

    Little Miss Sunshine (2006; dir. Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris)

    As Abigail Breslin cries to Alan Arkin for fear of disappointing her father, I wept with her. So much of the dysfunction paves way for the quiet & intimate. Like the first ray of sunshine after a torrential June.

    ★★★½

    Frances Ha (2012; dir. Noah Baumbach)

    Too many mixed feelings to truly like it. Tough watch. Really grating characters. Glad that Frances outgrows these fair-weather friends & her own insolence. Maddening affair (or is it a wake-up call?) for the people-pleasers (like me).

    The saddest thing is that these really annoying characters are a lot like some of the people I know in real life.
