My Favorite Wife

My Favorite Wife ★★★★★

Last film of the fest for me, and I was happy to go out on such a childhood comfort movie.

Yeah, it is problematic in its treatment of Gail Patrick, and the characters are bonkers in their lack of communication.

But it's also Irene Dunne and Cary Grant being bonkers together and they are like a beloved Auntie and Uncle to me because of their fun presence in my formative years.

Seeing Cary's daughter Jennifer talk about his fun twisty, manic mannerisms and how they were really him and not acting pretensions was oddly moving on a personal level for me. 💕
