Another one of my favorite movies, this one caught me by complete and genuine surprise. I had ZERO idea what I was getting into when I clicked play to this movie but it surpassed any expectations I had formed. It tells a wildly unconventional love story-especially on film-between two damaged people who connect over a shared indulgence. This soon blossoms into more while they don’t give up what makes them who they are, they learn who to live with this characteristics. This movie is what solidified my love for Gyllenhaal as she manages to create a fully dimensional character who despite seeming weak willed at the start of the film soon grows a back bone and stands up for what she loves-no matter what anyone else may thing of it.
