This was so lovely and uplifting. I kinda wish this movie had existed back when I was a teenager struggling hard with my weight and body dysmorphia. It sends the type of body positivity message that really could have boosted my self esteem a bit!
I have SO MANY issues with this film and Sierra being an asshole is actually the last one of them. Some of the jokes were straight up offensive, the lead character pretends to be deaf AND sexually assaults someone but it's somehow played down and pictured as this cute little moment. She never apologizes for the shit she pulled and still gets the guy in the end, ugh. Even the body positivity message completely falls apart when Jamey openly admits…
Do you ever feel like your life has turned into something you never intended?
I can't express how mad I am at myself for not watching this absolute piece of art sooner. It was stunning to look at but that's a given with Tom Ford. The atmosphere was unreal, so dark, intense and captivating, and I love how the score emphasized that even more... I was so anxious during the entire highway scene, my heart was literally beating out of my chest. It's seriously been a while since a movie gripped me this way and it will definitely stay on my mind for weeks.
