Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn fron:

Unsane (2018)

Sawyer: You say all the right things, David. Or what you think are the right things. Greeting card clichés and romance novel declarations of love. But that's not love. Love is giving yourself over to what someone else wants, even if it goes against everything you believe.

Claire Foy's impressively modulated panic-struck performance in Unsane really didn't get the attention it deserved -- I mean I'm at fault too since I loved the movie and promptly forgot about it for the rest of last year. I should've included it some in my end-of-year awards, especially Foy's work. She's that good. 

And I was about to excuse myself by saying that I'd clearly have plenty of opportunities to right that wrong given how ubiquitous Foy has been over the past 12 months when I noticed... she doesn't have anything lined up on IMDb? What in the heck is the deal with that? Her also-stellar work in First Man should have folks lining up to cast her. Well while we wait to hear her next move we wish her a happy 35th birthday today. Happy birthday, Claire!

I liked the movie, especially Jay Pharoah. But her accent was all over the fuckin place, drove me nuts
