Quotes

[first lines]
Lucy: [narrating] We all have to grow up... eventually. My sister Claire, however, did not agree. She was a normal kid except somehow never stopped believing in magic and fairy tales and true love, which basically made her a magnet for creeps.
Claire: [fending off a boy] Get off me!
Lucy: Yeah, ouch. Luckily, we were super popular. Except not really. I was never what you'd call a sweet child, and Claire... Claire had problems.

An unexpected pleasure
28 September 2017 | by gcoombsouSee all my reviews

You don't have to be a Fellini fan to enjoy and appreciate this movie, but if you have some familiarity, you will catch the references built into both the story and the cinematography (which is beautiful) and the Fellini clips integrated throughout. The story is a stylized, semi-autobiographical view of a solo trip co-writer Nancy Cartwright made to Italy in her early 20s after becoming enamored of the films of Federico Fellini. Ksenia Solo as Lucy, gives a wonderful performance, growing from wide eyed innocence and naivety through her experiences, good and bad (and bizarre). Her eyes alone speak volumes in every scene. Maria Bello and Mary Lynn Rajskub as Lucy's mother and aunt also shine as they negotiate their relationships both with Lucy and each other.
