“It’s every guy’s worst nightmare, getting accused like that.”
“Can you guess what every woman’s worst nightmare is?”
WOW. Simply wow. I don’t even know what to say. I don’t even remember the last time a movie hit me THAT much. I literally can’t stop thinking about this absolute masterpiece. This is truly the kind of movie you cannot forget. This is one of those things that will never leave your mind. It explodes like dynamite, It’s something so powerful that maybe we should invent new words to talk about it properly.
It’s so rare to find movies and TV series that manage to talk about such a delicate topic like sexual assault in an honest, but very direct way, but I think this film did an incredible job. Many people will find it controversial for sure, but we cannot deny that It’s raising many questions and it’s underlining things that are rarely stressed out in movies. I sincerely hope that lots of men will see this film and will reflect on their past and future behaviors. This is a movie that MUST be seen.
I have to compliment the writer and director, Emerald Fennell, for her outstanding job and Carey Mulligan for her heartbreaking performance, probably the best of her career. They both deserve recognition for their work and I sincerely hope the Oscars won’t forget them. Dear Academy members, you didn’t understand enough how powerful Thelma & Louise was 30 years ago, now don’t make the same mistake. Promising young woman Oscar campaign starts now!
P.S: the cinematography was so perfectly aesthetic that It almost looked like a Wes Anderson movie, ti voglio bene Flannella.
