Lindsay's nailing it tonight.
YES. (Also, what is this from/who is this female director?!)
Catherine Hardwicke, I think.
40. Jersey Boys (Clint Eastwood, 2014)
I saw this in a packed theater with many old people, who seemed to enjoy it. It makes me really excited for the Backstreet Boys biopic musical that had better exist by the time I’m 70.
As for the movie itself, … yikes. Awful. I get the sense the stage musical is fun in a cheesy, “your mom will love this” kind of way, but the the film captures none of that energy.
39. Obvious Child (Gillian Robespierre, 2014)
This was fantastic. It is both a very funny, very good romantic comedy and a refreshingly honest take on abortion. Its politics are important, but it’s also damn entertaining. Worth seeing for so many different reasons.
And now I’m going to dance around my apartment to Paul Simon.
