we're starting a book club.
Kicking and Screaming (1995). Directed by Noah Baumbach. BRILLIANT.
It's wry, dry, chopped up humor. This film would have meant so much less to me two or three years ago, but now, at 21, it's unbelievably fitting. It's the ultimate I'm graduating/have graduated, wtf do I do with myself flick. This is where I'm at, and I know a lot of us are in the same boat.
Do me a favor, and see this movie; the trailer up top doesn't do it justice. I think it'll be one that I can see time and time again, while always managing to glean something else from it. The dialogue hits in such a way as to catch you off guard. It's always gonna be fresh :)
