Short bit on why I liked Rachel Getting Married (8 March 2009)
Because, in part, it lets you know that all interactions between family members are well worth noting and thinking about. Because it shows the types of reactions that can cause you to doubt yourself. Because it shows people fighting back, standing up for themselves, and the kinds of reactions you get for doing this. Because it shows people trying to break-through, and showing that this is actually possible, but that it can happen without you even knowing at the moment that that was what just happened, but still at some level knowing: Kym didn't just not vear left or right, she headed through the bush, just as she went right at her mother -- repeat, emphasis, exclamation point, imprinting -- fuck you bitch, I AM! I AM! I AM!
