I can’t believe I haven’t seen this before. This is exactly what school was like for me. I was in rotation too. Nothing like the continuous mutany of teenage girls. And it’s so 90′s! Ha. It amazes me that people continue to unite against one another. It just goes in circles. Everything about this rings a bell, and would with most girls.
It’s the insight that makes it work – and it’s what a lot of films lack these days. The simplicity of how it just is paints a picture about so much more than the story. Sofia Coppola just nails girls. In all her films, from the Virgin Suicides to her Miss Dior Cherie spot. Can’t wait to see what she does with Somewhere.
I bought ten envelopes yesterday. And ten stamps. I’d have bought more but I’m broke. Emails cost nothing but letters are real. You can keep them and touch them. The picture on the card always says something about the relationship between you and it’s author. They smell, either of paper or the person who’s written them. And the handwriting . . . it gives so much away. About the writer, their mood. They have personality. Letters make people smile. So I’m going to try and write more of them.
