    The Diary of a Teenage Girl


    Don't get me wrong, I love Almost Famous to the MOON and back, but it is such a teenage boy 70s coming of age story, whereas this is my teenage girl 70s coming of age story. 20th Century Women makes some points as well, but its attention is definitely divided amongst boys and girls, whereas this just wholeheartedly embraces its femininity.

    Normal People


    Ranking Marianne’s style evolutions:
    1. English/PoliSci Student Discovering Anthropologie (long skirts, eyeliner, magnificent cable knit sweaters, bohemian dresses)
    2. Het Call Me By Your Name aka Somewhere In Northern Italy (sundresses)
    3. Full-Blown Swedish BDSM (all black, fur)
    4. Insecure High School Student (mini skirts, tights, bralettes)
    5. Intro to BDSM (black and red)
    6. Emotionally Satisfied Fourth Year (very similar to how I dress therefore boring, unfair to rate last but I was crying too much to notice her clothes)

I’ve never even talked to a man!” and like five minutes later Michael Fassbender shows up and is like β€œ forest elf....from what woodsy hovel do you you find me bewitching fairy my wife.....” like how do you REACT
