Love is messy. It's illogical, it's wasteful and it's messy. And it leaves these loose threads that go out all over the place. But you, you like things nice and neat and tidy and ethical.

Had to see it twice in the theater to catch all the good lines
So much more entertainment than everything else on the market now that it is summer. The fact that it is written in the context of academic genre with some faux anthropology references should not dissuade you (not faux? should be). Fantastic script focusing on a uniquely circumspect millennial and mother wanna-be. Many plans go awry here but all things work out nicely and in an utterly unexpected way. The unmitigated narcissism of the Hawke and Moore characters is priceless especially considering how clueless they are. I genuinely laughed out loud many times. Greta is terrific but all kudos to writer director Rebecca Miller (her dad was married to Marilyn Monroe? who knew?).
