It's not about you. It's not you that they're looking at. It's not about you. I'm on top of that. I understand that.
Oh, honey that's good, I'm so glad about that.
Because, if you let it be about you, then you're screwed, you know? So you have to stay separate from what's happening and you have to be somewhere else. But I don't know where that somewhere else is, you know? Or how to do that.

Angelina Jolie is the kind of actress who mixes beauty and talent. In this very good TV movie she has a great performance as Gia Carangie, a 'lost girl'. "Gia" is a very realistic and strong film, with a beautiful story. It is not a typical TV movie, so it's worth seeing. Another score for HBO.
