Happily ever after

Last night it was Lost in Translation. Tonight it's Garden State. Tomorrow is Napoleon Dynamite.

I love watching damaged people find love. It just seems purer. More real.

Watching people who are flawed and lonely and marginalized find love makes me happy. It makes me hope. It makes me feel that underneath it all the world is not as bad as it sometimes seems.

It makes me see possibility.

Can I put in a plug for Rushmore for night four?

We watched Garden State, Napoleon Dynamite, and The Station Agent back-to-back and thought they made a great trilogy....

Watch Secretary. I think it is just about the most perfect love story ever.

Yes, Rushmore fits well. As does the Station Agent. And oddly, lu, Secretary played immediately after Garden State. It, too, is a rockin' flick.
