so i ultimately did not end up seeing "the exploding girl" this weekend. instead, i was busy with all sorts of other stuff- meeting up with my friend lindsay for happy hour (i should be the authority on happy hours in nyc by the end of the summer), driving around manhattan on a saturday (eek!) to recycle a broken tv, hanging out at my favorite french restaurant (bar tabac), wandering through ikea looking for lighting fixtures, and meeting up with a friend i hadn't seen in awhile to do lots of talking and eating (chocolate chip strawberry walnut pancakes & a healthy banana shake- it was like heaven).
but somehow in the midst of all of that, i watched three movies...
a small painfully realistic film about a couple navigating their way through a long distance relationship, starring greta gerwig, the girl we all fell in love with in "greenberg"
ah, i miss the 90's... the 90's were all about eric stoltz & mary louise parker.
watching this has got me dreaming of an early 90's eric stolz indie movie marathon: sleep with me, kicking & screaming, killing zoe, bodies rest & motion- i haven't seen all of these in forever.
i forgot i had already seen it, but it was a sweet little movie to watch again. it didn't hurt that i have a small crush on brian f. o'byrne... he's irish and i like that.
it also stars marguerite moreau (shown above- so pretty!), naveen andrews (who i recognized from law & order, but i guess he's also on "lost"), and the sister of everyone's favorite girl crush, emily deschanel.
