in a parallel universe, amy adams and i are both winners
// 18 //
The first half of this is so so heartbreaking. It made my stomach queasy. It’s the tale of conning family trying to make ends meet with their landlord and their rent. They have such smart and conniving ways you basically root for them. Their schemes take them to connect with Gina Rodriguez’s Melanie. The mood switches and honestly for the better. I don’t know if I could see the movie drag on with the same tone as the beginning. That being said, it was a vital point as to why the last few moments are so important. Worth at least two watches.
