this film is like a warm hug. always seem to return to it when I’m not feeling too great. it’s one long conversation that’s beautiful, honest, and quiet. reminds me what I like most about being alive.
- I don’t like me when I need you.
- I don’t want you to need me, I want you to want me.
- Oh, there’s no truth like bullshit!
a personal reckoning with womanhood and friendship, loss and loneliness. I think the film really captures the nuances of female friendships but also something of an anxiety familiar to many women — that of unwittingly losing yourself and your identity in the relationships you build.
overall, a delightful and perceptive film in so many ways...found myself grinning in recognition often.
