Like, I can’t even put it into words just how much I ADORED this movie!
It was real, hilarious, charming, and most of all, beautifully acted by every single one of the actors.
There were a few moments that literally hit me like a punch in the chest, but it was so…. worth it. I even loved and appreciated those moments that were difficult to get through because they just made the movie that much more special.
Does anybody else find this girl completely fascinating?
I mean she comes from such a famous family (you don’t grow up in the 90’s without wishing the Olsen twins were your BFFs), and all of a sudden she’s she’s out on the movie scene, totally kickin’ ass and taking names.
I hear her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene is unbelievable too. Can’t wait to see it!
For the time being though, I’m just going to watch all her TIFF (etc!) footage and wonder what her life has been like this past year - with acting like she’s in a cult, having twins sisters who are completely taking over the fashion industry AND pretending to have a pot smoking Jane Fonda as her grandmother.
I laughed the whole way through and literally the very last line of the film made me well up in tears. Yeah, it was one of those. Walk out all teary eyed slash incredibly optimistic about love kind of a deal.
The only small part I had a problem with was when the 17 year old babysitter gives the young boy (of a mere 13 years) the pictures she took of herself. I know it was supposed to be all cute and funny and maybe she’s opening up to the possibility kind of a thing and giving him a break, but when the last frame of the movie landed on him I was like, whoa. That kid is just a baby. Sure, we can laugh about what he did in on his own time in his bedroom… but those two things are not one in the same. Maybe it went a bit too far… I’m not too sure.
Anyway, other than that - Steve Carrell (Yum), Ryan Gosling (Double Yum), Emma Stone (She can literally do no wrong) and Julianne Moore were pretty much perfection.
