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.

Get off me!
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.

Naive girl's most improbable trip to meet Fellini.
I found this movie on the Kanopy site through my public library's subscription, viewed via Roku streaming.
This movie has somewhat mixed reviews and after watching it I have somewhat mixed feelings about it. Inspired by writer Nancy Cartwright's own adventures when she was younger, in this fictionalized story young Lucy is 20 in 1993, in Cleveland inadvertently stumbles into a Fellini film festival and is instantly mesmerized with the images those films convey.
So she sets out to go to Italy and look up Fellini. I suppose that would be like a French girl seeing "Taxi Driver" then traveling to New York to look up Scorsese. The movie is about her adventures and misadventures. Is it just a sort of "coming of age" story?
While I enjoyed it on a certain level, and the actress playing Lucy is very good, the last scenes are a bit confusing and when it was over I wasn't quite sure what the intent of the story was.
