i wasn’t prepared to relive my middle school experience so vividly but here we are. bo, you’re a genius. elsie, you are beyond brilliant.
Much in the same way Josh Radnor's character Jesse in this film had attended a British Romantics class that awoke something within him, this film awoke something within me. Josh quotes (and I think paraphrases) David Foster Wallace saying "The purpose of fiction is to combat loneliness." I strongly agree. There is a profound form of connection found in the stories we are told and the stories we create. This film reminded me of that and gave me a renewed and even greater love for storytelling.
