Sarah Polley and Greta Gerwig on "Frances Ha"

If you haven't seen it yet, Frances Ha is a beautiful little film that feels like French new wave taking place inNew York City. Humorous and heartbreaking, and most alarmingly, extremely relatable, Greta Gerwig delivers an incredible performance as the characte she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach. In this short documentary about the film, actress and director Sarah Polley sits down with Gerwig to talk about how this film managed to capture the 'penetrating loneliness of New York City and how shitty it is to live an unstable life in your late 20s.'

You really sold me with this description! I can't wait to see it.
I really loved this film. Even though I have never lived in New York City, or spent the weekend in Paris, I really believed in this performance. I can't wait to see Greta in more roles!

What Did You Think of Okja?
I finally had the time to watch Okja this weekend and I am so glad I did! If you didn't see any info about it you can read my card --> here! Basic summary: A food corporation is breeding a new kind of pig, they gave 26 of them to farmers around the world and made a competition of who could raise the biggest pig. Okja is one of the pigs, and has become part of the family in her Korean home. When she's taken away - her little girl will stop at nothing to get her back! !! !!! !! SPOILERS AHEAD!!! !! !!! !! First off, I was surprised by how fast it went. The 2 hours totally flew by! I also loved how they played with Korean, and since I was able to understand it it made it even funnier. Like when the leader of the ALF was like "40 long years ago we founded this great blahbalhabalahbal...." and Steve Yeun's character was just like "매날" hahahah I did like it, but I have one tiny issue with it... Lucy Mirando's character: She was totally manic. She was an absolute nut which made her so fun to watch. The problem is though, that it makes her character, her company, and what that corporation is doing, seem like an exaggeration. It really isn't :/ The horrible conditions, violent "forced mating" aka rape, and unnecessary pain is totally normal in the food industry. Now yes, there are local farmers that still treat their animals with dignity, and I don't think Okja was anti-meat. I think Okja is talking about the HUGE corporations that are doing pretty horrible things to our food. From using totally unsustainable ways of farming to putting animals in completely unnecessary conditions (like I said, I know there are farmers that raise animals in a sustainable way - not talking about those people!!) I hope Okja opened a lot of eyes, but I also hope people won't write the Mirando Corp off as an exaggeration because, as scary as it is, that is so SO close to reality. What did you think!?
Fictional Characters I Would Date
So I saw this card by @sophiamor about dating fictional characters, and while it wasn't a challenge, it got me thinking and then I wanted to make a card myself. So I'm presenting a challenge if you want, let us know who you would date!! 1. Sesshomaru Let's be honest, Sesshomaru was amazing!! He never wavered and only did what was best for him and those under his care. He would be devoted, brilliant, deadly, and extremely protective, not to mention super hot! Plus, you get a little sister!! 2. Samwise Gamgee Let's be honest, Frodo Baggypants had nothing on Sam. Everyone knows he was the real hero of LOTR. He is sweet all throughout the journey, and he's loyal, devoted, and he never lost his ability to hope and love. He did change, but it only made stronger and gave him the desire to appreciate life and love. Could you ask for a better friend or partner? I think not. 3. Mr. Darcy Oh Fitzwillialm! Lol. I've always been in love with Mr. Darcy since I knew about Pride and Prejudice. Every time I reread the book or rematch the movies (I own two different versions) I fall in love with him all over again. He is a devoted brother, friend, and master; he's also smart, resourceful, connected, hard-working and has a good character about him. What could be better? 4. Momiji Sohma He was my favorite from the beginning: devoted friend, big brother, son, and no matter how dark everything got, he never stopped loving. He tried to stay positive and loved others even when it was painful and he's get nothing in return. Also, he became extremely handsome as an adult. I would have chosen him in a heartbeat. 5. Prince Derek He's one of my favorite non-Disney princes, and let's be honest, even compared to many Disney princes, lol. He's strong, fast, brave, loyal, smart, and loving. He's truly the perfect prince in so many ways. I'd love to date him. 6. Merlin He's loyal almost to a fault. Could you ask for more from a guy? He does all sorts of odd-end jobs, he'd be perfect for all the house chores like mowing the lawn, plumbing, fixing doorknobs, etc. He is hard-working and would give his life for you. Plus, he has a great sense of humor and despite his abilities remains (mostly) humble and honorable. Truly a treasure. Very true, lol. I had a hard time deciding on who i would actually date, and finally settled on these awesome guys. @InVinsybll, @taylor619cruz, @neevp, @AimeBolanos, @hikaymm, @saori99, @BlackoutZJ, @CreeTheOtaku, @Sharia, @Janxsalas, @nick2232, @koifries, @SimoneSanders, @EmiiAlcid, @NightcoreOtaku, @3awl, @kevauna12, @Lushisushi, @coraweiland, @Hinatahyuga, @UsagiChan, @DietraAngelus, @desireesowah143, @AcaciaNguyen, @HokageJess, @lovethe90s, @KaitlynBottoms, @MinakoTsan, @JeffPalmer, @AllieGrabowski, @sarahdarwish, @SierraBecerra, @jojojordy2324, @ReynadeKpop, @maddiedo, @kyokeo, @MomoChamie, @daniimals, @shelbiisonfire, @pinkfluffyunico, @mycreativename, @Juliag13, @Sankeerthana, @SunsQistina, @NekoYoongi, @kwonsooshi, @sosoaloraine, @SilentPianist, @megancurrent19, @Ligaya, @Defy24601, @koreanfan99, @P1B2Bear, @Yattamae, @Infynitee, @FatimaGarciaa, @Zurny, @wow12wow, @Cx5228, @thatoneoutcast@kpopandkimchi, @Miss148, @honeysoo, @iamrotamrot, @AimeeH, @StephanieDuong, @KaceyDodge, @B1A4BTS5ever, @kpopGaby, @PassTheSuga, @MattK95, @Starbabes, @baileykayleen, @byeolbit, @NatMarie, @KhrystinaLee, @sugajin94, @AgentLeo, @XergaB20, @netchtiBates, @CheyenneJessee, @allischaff, @ocherrylimeadeo, @Meeshell, @ravirie, @DeeNice, @HappyGLAlexis, @Viresse, @AlmaRangel, @edwinb94, @IzzyPerkins, @Boekyeol27, @solodaywithB1A4, @YvonJerzak, @wonsikbrah, @TaeJinMaknae, @TesneemElAlami, @Mastermind2K16, @kelseyblair, @ciabrizz, @Dahliadang, @KellyOConnor, @JustinaMclean, @ToriDaldegan, @ashelynlandon15, @kpopular, @StarlightDria, @RecklessYouth, @AlatheaOwan, @JazminOrozco, @Adetoro, @kpopgirl42, @NayizX3, @squeakk, @paksaedi, @Elanana, @xxxtina, @BTSinsfires@JiyongLeo, @lovetop, @lilbr0wneyes, @resavalencia, @IsoldaPazo, @KristinaCaron, @SarangRavi, @goinnutz22, @JenGambale, @ElishaFisher, @Mikim000, @TesneemAlami, @VeronicaArtino, @jenxchan, @deilig@jessicaacosta90, @KhrystinaLee, @ElleHolley, @JaiiPanda, @ashleyemmert, @Isolate, @sarabear1021, @EliseB, @Lexxsisco, @ScarletMermaid, @Nadinerzz, @narutobandgeek
