RIIIIIGHT because females only gain agency through male involvement.
The movie would quickly lose direction without a large male role.
I mean, it’s not like anything interesting has EVER happened to girls.
You also don’t want to name a film AFTER a female character because then how would it ever do well with both general audiences?
Honestly, you’re right. The film would turn into nothing but two hours of girls braiding each other’s hair and other girly things because that’s all those silly girls are ever capable of. Hahaha! Girls!
I can only hope that in someday in the future girls evolve to be interesting enough to have more expansive roles in films.
my first thought this morning was “count olaf should have been more thoroughly checked by social services”

I both love it and hate it like???
I adore the way that Byron is constructed and I love that the infrastructures are there to show how really genuine and supportive Byron was of Mary and how he legitimately believed in her and urged her to pursue writing
I love the characterization of Claire
but Shelley is like a cardboard cutout of Shelley??? and Polidori even moreso a parody of himself
THE SCENERY AND MUSIC IS SO BEAUTIFUL
but the need to try to fit in every traumatic event that happened over the course of these people’s lives into one summer definitely fractured the ability to connect with the characters
If I could????? super-impose the things I liked from Rowing with Haunted Summer it would literally be a perf movie
even though Gothic is my fave 5evr
The quote from the college is infuriating:
Hobart and William Smith Colleges regret the accessibility challenges faced by Professors Kuusisto and Peace. The conference organizers immediately apologized and the president of Hobart and William Smith also personally expressed his regret. We remain committed to ensuring that our facilities and programs are accessible to all members of the community. We have taken immediate steps to create more appropriate signage and to mitigate access issues.
Nope. That’s not gonna do. See, you just placed the problem for YOUR brazenly inaccessible buildings on two disabled people. Your sentence structure is more or less, “We apologize for the fact that it hurt when you we punched you in the stomach.”See? It’s not actually an apology if you locate the problem within the person you harmed.
In doing so, you take away your own responsibility - ethically as well as legally - to create an inclusive learning environment, and you refuse to acknowledge how many other disabled people - or pregnant people, parents of young kids, people with broken legs, older folks, athletes who just had surgery on their knees, etc. - you’re excluding with your refusal to make your classrooms and event halls meet the very basic accessibility standards laid out under the ADA.
