Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Ice Storm (1999)


Wendy Hood: Dear Lord, thank you for this Thanksgiving holiday. And for all the material possessions we have and enjoy. And for letting us white people kill all the Indians and steal their tribal lands. And stuff ourselves like pigs, even though children in Asia are being napalmed.

And in a happenstance of holiday-themed karmic convergence, Glenn just gave thanks for this scene over at The Film Experience this morning! I wrote up this post yesterday along with the Addams-era Ricci Turkey Day love and Glenn's right on: cinematically speaking we all do need to recognize Ricci's ownership of this holiday. So give thanks for Christina Ricci today. And somebody give her more jobs worthy of her skill. Do it! On this both Pilgrims and Indians agree!

Oh and I gave thanks at The Film Experience for Greta Gerwig's Eighties hair and the lure of evil pizza, so check that too.
