A New Leaf

A New Leaf ★★★

Am I dumb for thinking Walter Matthau kinda sucks??

Like half the people on my timeline, I'm reading Mark Harris's Mike Nichols bio and it rules. I'm only a quarter in but the thing that's sticking with me the most is the way he paints the intimacy of Nichols and May's relationship:

And in May, Nichols saw something he had never found before. He felt early on, he said, that they were “safe from each other forever. We can’t do each other any harm or say anything wrong to each other.” And he also sensed that “she wouldn’t lose interest and move on. I knew instantly that everything that happened to us was ours.”

Three stars!
