    20th Century Women

    ★★★★½

    nothing is spectacular and yet everything is. a birthday cake with strawberry slices falling down the sides. a dome in the park that paints a layer of light over the grass. a house that is perpetually being fixed, but never feels uninviting. one hand that scratches your back, while the other jots down all the stocks. everything is constantly breathing, supporting, glowing. no question is asked rhetorically — everything awaits a story. propped up on an elbow, ready to listen or speak. whichever is desired.

    Am I Ok?

    ★★★

    a well balanced cast in that every time someone comes on screen i say “oh wow i love them” but for a completely different reason. molly gordon is so effortlessly funny & whitmer thomas so effortlessly puts me as ease, i want them stealing scenes in everything

    taylour paige saying “i was born with a crush” while in her marie antoinette outfit. man, lena knows how to assemble a cast. yes, it’s messy, but stick any two characters together and something will start to simmer. top it all off with a julia jacklin song and i’m sold.
