First Lady

If you’ve ever read Curtis Sittenfeld’s American Wife, picture the exact opposite of that. Then make it 100 times more confusing and cockamamie, and about half as sexy, and you’ve got First Lady by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Ok, that was harsh. Let me explain.

How do I feel about The Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Kyle Chandler (coach! <3), directed by the-more-cursing-the-better Martin Scorsese?

He really gets teen misery in all shapes and sizes, you know? The first half of Looking For Alaska very much reminded me of Prep (which I HIGHLY recommend), in … More Looking For Alaska

American Hustle

I would like to point out that I saw a preview for and wanted to see American Hustle long before it started getting all this Golden Globe and Oscar buzz — I believe it was when I saw Blue Jasmine — and that should somehow make me seem cooler. I would also like to point out … More American Hustle
