Matt and I took each other to see this (he used his movie coupons, I suggested) and watching this a second time I observed that what I liked about this movie was the fact that it was the rare depiction of couples finding their place as a couple in the world. Most movies are about the couple meeting and coming together or the couple breaking up, or dealing with strife, so this seems a treat. Matt agreed that the main character was much like him, though he pointed out that I’d never stapled his itinerary to his coat.*
Bechdel score. Two women. Still nope. Hmm. Wait a second here! I’m remembering that the sisters talk to each other about their parents. So let me do this again.
Two women: yes. Who talk to each other: yes. About something besides a man: Yes!
*I pointed out that it was only because I hadn’t thought of it and wouldn’t he actually benefit from that?
