    Private Life

    ★★★★½

    There is a 100% chance someone at a Q&A asked Tamara Jenkins if she was a fan of The Graduate.

    Seems like every couple of years there’s a movie that feels like Woody Allen would’ve made it back in the day. In 2015, it was Mistress America. This year, it’s this — though it certainly has a stronger female perspective, differentiating itself from other films in the oddly specific subgenre.

    Giamatti owns. Hahn owns. Kayli “Saoirse Ronan’s long-lost sister” Carter owns. And I can’t wait to dig into Tamara Jenkins’ prior filmography.

    ★★★★½

    Chazelle. Gosling. Stone. Just one teensy-tinsy narrative sour note. And one hell of an ending.

    Y'all have no idea how hard your world is about to get rocked.

    EDIT 12/2/16: Okay. Guess y'all have a pretty good idea.

    ★★★

    A classic. It's terrible in almost every way. But it's a classic.
