I can't believe they let the lead be so sporty-butch and not have a male love interest??
And her guy friend whom I thought the plot was going to set her up with ended up being gay??
We're so #blessed
I didn't hate it?
The plot was half-assed, for sure. Why was MCUSA trying to put Goldstein to death for not turning Newt in when she literally attempted to do that, and they wouldn't listen to her? And that ending was subtextually homophobic, to say the least. Johnny Depp being cast as Grindewald is full homophobic.
However.... I love Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander. Gentle masculinity like his is rarely seen on the silver screen. What a Hufflepuff.
