Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

Ingrid Goes West (2017)

Taylor Sloane: Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea. 
Drink the wild air. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I think we under-appreciated how funny Elisabeth Olsen (who turns 32 today) was in this movie -- it's easy enough to get lost in the Aubrey-Plaza-ness of it all (she's an old school scene-stealer, just ask poor Mackenzie Davis in Happiest Season) but Olsen did some fine work as the self-obsessed object of Aubrey's obsession in this terrific and dark comedy that I also feel we should all talk about more. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying WandaVision, but I hope its success leads to more non-Marvel projects for this super actress. Another Martha Marcy May Marlene, please!
