I mean, whoever doesn't get it after this probably never will.

After watching two films that feature women negatively effected by men and their egos, it's good to see something like this that attempts to give that shit the middle finger. All of these people missing the irony of their own words hits too close to home nowadays. At times felt a bit heavy handed, but there are plenty of people who just won't get it otherwise. And Carey Mulligan's performance truly makes it the more satisfying. Until, well, shit goes down in the most bittersweet way possible. She would quite literally rather die than have that dude live free, and that's some intense shit that I can't help but respect.

And Bo was right, it did look weird when they kissed. He tall.
