There are some movies I am compelled to write about. I first watched Shopgirl a couple of years ago and adored it. I have just finished watching it again. Lucy went to sleep two hours ago plus it's cold, wet and windy so the perfect opportunity to watch a movie. It's as good the third time around.
And it's not a movie just for girls (I checked with Lucy's Dad), it's funny without the one-liners, is thought-provoking, and the cinematography is wonderful. Surprisingly too, after all the slapstick roles he has done, Steve Martin manages to be hot.
You know when you recommend a film to a friend, and they don't get it or don't really like it - do you ever secretly wonder then if you have anything in common, or start questioning the way they think? In saying that, I have a very close male friend who I simply will not watch a movie with. We squabble at the movie store, and get so restless and agitated watching each other's film. Funny huh.
