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 :)

You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, 'Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness.' You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
