Girlfriends ★★★★

What a gem! Thankful that this ended up on my radar—and it's leaving The Criterion Channel this month, so make time for it if you haven't already. Clearly ahead of its time, freewheeling and fiercely independent. Melanie Mayron is terrific and appearances from young Christopher Guest and Bob Balaban (with hair!) is the icing on the cake. Tequila shots! Art galleries! Baby ducks! And so, so many layers of clothing!
