Quotes

Jenny Young: Do you think I can have one more kiss? I'll find closure on your lips, and then I'll go. Maybe also one more breakfast, one more lunch, and one more dinner. I'll be full and happy and we can part. But in between meals, maybe we can lie in bed one more time. One more prolonged moment where time suspends indefinitely as I rest my head on your chest.

Perfect sunday louging around movie
22 April 2019 | by nathi_meyerSee all my reviews

If you, like me, just want to watch a feel-good movie on a lazy sunday, this is one of those. May be a typical rom-com, but if yoh are knto that, it is a solid one. Not super great, but entertaining and makes one feel a few different emotions.
