|Or as I like to think of it, Lesbian Dracula.|
Hey everyone, welcome to Thursday's Tagline! Today I thought we might take a brief detour to snowy northern Canada, so that we could talk about The Moth Diaries, another one of my spectacular late night Netflix adventures. Starring Sarah Bolger (who I remember as Mary in The Tudors as Rebecca, a student at an all-girls prep-school. Now I get a little worried whenever a movie starts with a girl narrating something she is writing in a diary (especially with the possibility of vampires in the offing) but I decided to press on anyway. Rebecca seems right off the bat like kind of a troubled girl. We find out that her dad killed himself a few years before the movie takes place, I guess he was a artsy writer poet or something, anyway, back to Rebecca, she is doing okay now, thanks in part to her besty, Lucy (Sarah Gadon, who I saw in Cosmopolis, some day I'll get around to reviewing it I swear) who she... really likes. Now I'm assuming the "feeling" is mutual, because I had lots of close friends who I didn't talk to while I was taking a bubble bath and they were playing with the bubbles. That's pretty good friends, and later events support my "not just friends" theory.
|She's always looking down in this scene. Totally checking Lucy |
out. For shame Mary Tudor, I thought you were a good Catholic.
|Scott Speedman stop kissing high-schoolers just because|
Kate Beckinsale isn't interested anymore.
|They do a terrible job singing along. The game would have|
totally failed them, that thing is merciless.
|Silly Ernessa, we don't shower in blood with our good|
clothes on! What a silly girl.
So while I found aspects of this movie to be silly and cliche, they were all secondary to the central conflict, which I found more or less very well done, and compelling. It kept me watching through girl's night jumping on our beds, because I wanted to know. Was Ernessa the undead, or was Rebecca just out of her GD mind?
That's it for this week, I'll see you around gang! Stay classy.
