I saw the first half of Battle of the Sexes (2017) on a plane. An interesting movie that I want to finish: it's about the lead-up to the tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973. Both Emma Stone and Steve Carrell do a great job developing their characters (as usual), but I also really like Jessica McNamee as the more conservative tennis star Margaret Court. Margaret's appraisal of
Billie Jean and her hair dresser's relationship
was delivered in such a dry and immediate way. Her manner matches a later scene where she speaks without thinking
Billie Jean is the best tennis player in the world
. She feels like a credible foil to Billie Jean.

I saw A Wrinkle in Time a few weeks ago. I mostly loved it, although of course I had some "that's not how it was in the BOOK" feelings.

Ohmygod I've been suggesting Godard movies to help in my French practice groups for the past 2 weeks and I have to watch one by tomorrow afternoon. I watched Breathless last week which is soooooooo stylish. I'm also trying to get access to Kembra Pfahler movies because um she sounds amazing but I'm having trouble finding them. :(

Sansho the Bailiff. Despite being heart-wrenching at times, it's probably the most optimistic film I've seen by Kenji Mizoguchi.

Last movie I watched was Danish Girl. It was on Netflix, partners friend had recommended it to her, so we gave it a watch. Her friend said it was "inspirational"...well let me tell you, damn thing is spectacular but had me in tears from start to finish. Had a headache for days afterwards...
