The Perfect Date (I) (2019)
Noah Centineo: Brooks Rattigan
Brooks Rattigan : [Brooks's letter to Celia] Dear Admissions Office of the University of Celia Lieberman, First off, I just want to say what an honor it is just to be considered as a potential attendee at your fine institution. And secondly, this feels really creepy writing to you as if you're a university and not a person, so I'll stop that now. A few months ago, I was a guy who carried around this empty feeling. Then, I thought that it could be filled by driving the nicest car, dating the most popular girl, or going to the fanciest school. But the closer I got to having any of these things, the deeper that empty feeling got. I've been so many people these past few months. A cowboy, an art connoisseur, an amateur beekeeper, a prep school wannabe, a bad friend, an obnoxious son, and a self-obsessed prick. But through it all there were little pockets of air when I felt like I was truly myself, and that was when I was with you. I don't know if you're accepting applications right now, but if not, I am totally willing to be wait-listed.
