    Breakfast at Tiffany's

    ★★★★½

    “I’d marry you for your money in a minute. Would you marry me for my money?”
    “…In a minute.”
    “I guess it’s pretty lucky neither of us is rich, huh?” 

    this movie feels like magic. it’s cozy and comfortable but deeply critical of people who fear commitment and spends quite a bit of time highlighting the pain cause by cowardice. i’m gonna buy the book and read it because i love it a lot :) here’s more movie quotes :)…

    I knew it the first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known.

    i’ve been a touch heartbroken lately, so i’m not sure if this was the movie i NEEDED. but i was surprisingly comforted by the value of impermanent happiness, even if i still don’t (and will never) jive with the idea of love or the people in your life as fate. 

    That’s your problem. You don’t want to be in love, you want to be in love in a movie.

    i was near tears for about 60% of this movie and i think it may be actually, scientifically perfect
