    β€œAre you ever going to grow up? Just be a person?”

    This film’s silence is one of its virtues. The script was only forty pages, and so many of the most poignant scenes – from Johnny and Cleo having an underwater tea party, to the pair playing Guitar Hero are done in the comfortable quietness of those who exchange what can’t be said by words.

    β€œThe whole school is rolling fake dice / You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.”

    As somebody known among my friends as the β€œindie” girl: the girl who thinks listening to The Smiths is some kind of accomplishment, and reading Sylvia Plath deserves a reward, Taylor Swift seems like a difficult person to slot into my persona, despite her being my favourite musician for the last six years. To the audience of the uncomprehending, she’s the girl who’s dated…
