There is a 'Ladies Club' here. It meets monthly, eats, watches a film and discusses.
I am attending my first meeting of the Club next week. Via e-mail I got into a movie discussion with my sponsor-amiga over the superior virtues as I see them of Winter's Bone and the many failures as I see them of the Dude Bros' True Grit. She repeats the universal praise that the Dude Bros' True Grit may be the greatest movie ever made, at least since The Great StumbleMumbleBum of Seattle; she has not seen Winter's Bone. Next thing I know she's sent all I'd written about Winter's Bone* to the club president, who then arbitrarily changed this meeting's screening to Winter's Bone. She also sends what I wrote to the journal to have it published there. I am so excited about getting watch and talk about this woman-centered and woman-made film with other women!
Gadessaries! it's cold.
* Thoughts on Winter's Bone here, and True Grit here.
