    The New Romantic

    ★★½

    Watched because the title reminded me of New Romantics from 1989! Visually this was enjoyable to watch and I loved the soundtrack. I appreciated the risks taken here and the idea that we can own our stories with all of our mistakes and imperfections and not feel that we need to hide the things that helped us to grow. There were some confusing mixed messages along the way but overall a fun watch! 
     I was feeling all these feelings and then the last scene happened and WOW this was so worth watching just for the last 5 minutes!!

    -when Fonny and Tish embrace in the street after finally finding a loft 
    -when the baby is born and Tish says, “I got you” over and over again, like her…
