I don't actually have much to say beyond that, because I don't want to spoil the film for anyone.
But yeah... it was good? Like, it was funny, and had a good message - I laughed, I cried, I cared deeply for characters that SHOULD be absolutely ridiculous and yet aren't. I loved how every single character (nearly) was a super complex character who was never only good or bad.
That's sort of what I wanted my fantasy novel to be more about, but I don't think I've gotten there yet. There's so many things I have to fix in the second draft, and I haven't even finished the first draft. Yarr.
Anyway, I'm exhausted, so that's all your getting in terms of a movie review.
Oh, except to say that Towards Tenderness really drove home the fact that men being in a position where they can challenge toxic masculinity instead of having it shackle them to a life of misery is a position of privilege, my goodness.
Okay, now THAT's all your getting. :P
