Secretary, and thoughts

At capitalfellow's suggestion, I saw Secretary this weekend. My eeevil side thinks it would be fun to hand an unmarked copy to my mom. "It's a movie about a secretary, like you!" But I digress.

I really liked it. Maggie Gyllenhal (sp?) is a terrific actress; she can say it all with a look. I hope she has a brilliant career.

As Scott and I agreed, it's not really a movie about BDSM. Sure, it got more publicity and interest because of that. But it's really -- and I swear I was skeptical when my co-reviewers at AAR said this, they're mostly married with 2.5 kids -- it's really a fairy tale. About there being someone for everyone, against all odds.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that somewhere out there, there is someone for everyone who wants someone. I mean, just last night my mom was telling me that my dad's best friend, who is a redneck with a beer gut like he's expecting triplets, has found love with my mom's shrewish coworker, who marvels that he likes her for herself. See? And you should see the way astrophysicat and tenn_crichton look at each other. If they weren't so damn cool I would have gone into insulin shock. ;)

I don't mean for this to sound patronizing to all of us who are having trouble finding that someone (myself included). But I just can't help but think that it really can happen, if we believe in it.
