    Loved this! Cooper Raif makes these wonderfully human movies in all its messy glory. I think we need to be more compassionate and more empathetic collectively. To understand that there’s a lot more to people than what we immediately see. I like how this film reminds of us that. 

    Stray observations
    - More softboy representation is good so that dudes know it’s okay to fucking talk about shit and it’s okay to be awkward sometimes.
    - Este Haim involvement continues the Haim sisters gradual progress towards global domination and I’m okay with that
