A newbie trying to be a cinephile. I call it the Eden Tries To Be Cultured Project.
This did NOT sit well with at ALL. Shame, I was really looking forward to this and I genuinely hoped it would progressively get better, but instead I had to sit through 1 and a half hour of agony. Cute ending though, I guess. I just do not see the appeal of why this is considered an iconic teen cult movie.
The last 20 minutes gave me so much whiplash.
A beautiful tale of love, dream, and ambition, and how even though all you ever want is for all these things to have one way up, sometimes they clash and demand to be taken to different directions. It doesn't mean it's not going up, still.
