this is a great film, and not just because it understands what the graduate is about and uses a clip from the film within it. it’s fantastically told from the very beginning. it recalls another post-modern boy/girl story called annie hall. frankly, this is every bit as heartbreaking, though not as funny. eventually it could be seen as a classic as annie hall is for an older generation.
both leads are great as is the writing and directing. visually it’s a fun film to watch. my favorite scene was the reality vs. expectation scene which was truly heartbreaking and the first time i cried at a new film in a while. i think most sensitive people watching that can relate.
i’m not sure how i feel about the ending, it’s open to interpretation. i don’t really want to write much about the film. it’s a great one that’s done in a lively way with a great balance of comedy and drama. probably the best of the year so far – watch it.Watched in theater
