i love women supporting women! this is obviously not without its faults in today’s modern world, especially the trans characters storylines, because it’s essentially about a woman who’s ashamed of her trans partner. but pedro really really knows how to depict the pain and suffering that women go through every single day. this is melodrama at its finest. douglas sirk would be proud!
i’m a sucker for a reference so the streetcar, all about eve and opening night allusions really got me going. and the interiors and costumes are to die for it goes without saying. the wig budget for marisa paredes alone must’ve been ludicrous
