a copy is a copy is a copy
23 September 2018 | by acandianiSee all my reviews

Even when you want to be totally supportive of this very creative (her previous movie) director, you cannot forget that a copy is a copy is a copy. Reading her interviews denying that she intentionally remade I'm a Cheerleader is quite upsetting. If you wrote this script and presented it as a thesis, you would surely be told that this is simple plagiarism. I invite everyone to go and seek I'm a Cheerleader. Same themes, same locations, same era, same characters, so much so that after one minute, you know where the movie is going. I'm a Cheerleader is super funny and very deep at the same time. The Miseducation is neither when compared to a movie that was brilliantly directed 20 years ago and let's say that it's also a cult with cinephiles of ALL kind. I cannot believe for once that the judges that gave Desiree Akhavan her award were not aware of the similarities (identical scenes) with the previous movie. If I had not known the previous movie (I repeat Desiree Akhavan does not say this is a remake of that movie!), then I would have probably appreciated The Miseducation a bit more. But same as when you copy someone else's ideas, you either own what you did or you sooner or later will be found out. Unfortunately, we live in a world where successful musician are taking other people's songs and only admitting doing so if caught. Desiree Akhavan I love your first movie. Desiree Akhavan this is a copy and a copy is a copy is a copy.
