Les Beehive – Redheads Jessica Chastain, Julianne Moore, Florence Welch and more by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, Augus 2014

Hey! I finally went to see the house where they filmed The Virgin Suicides after living 20 minutes away from it for about a year! Guess what guys? Yeah, it’s been completely renovated into a stucco covered nightmare. It’s absolutely hideous and almost unrecognizable, apart from the house across the street looking exactly the same.

Nothing gold can stay, I guess.

Where Allen’s become a tougher case for me is how much of his work is a reminder of his confirmed and alleged personal life — the huge age gaps involved in some of the romances, the jokes about molestation and sleeping with 12-year-olds. There’s also the way his movies normalize these things — like how everyone in Manhattan shrugs or laughs off the fact that 42-year-old Isaac Davis is dating a high schooler.

Hollie and I had the opportunity to see Boyhood last week and it was really lovely. It grew on me after I watched it. I keep finding myself connecting moments from my own childhood to that of the main characters’, which might be difficult at first, but that’s only because Richard Linklater takes such a different approach to coming of age.

Most directors tend to go for the showier moments of childhood (parents fighting, first kiss, first car, etc etc) but Linklater forgoes that route entirely. You learn about these moments as the film progresses, but it focuses on the smaller things. We don’t see Mason learn to drive, but we see his father breaking yet another promise to him. We don’t see his first kiss, but we see the aftermath of a broken heart. In this way, Linklater completely sidesteps what initially feels like “the action”, but by doing so reaches a whole different level of capturing childhood. It’s a true collection of small, important moments. I don’t know about you guys, but though I barely remember my high school graduation, I can’t forget the feeling of skipping a class and grabbing a sandwich. That’s what this film feels like.

I had a special connection to this film, considering the age of the main character matches up perfectly with mine (and his mother is the same age as mine). I don’t think that’s necessary though. You’ll probably cry anyway.

Is Boyhood out where you live? Go see it!
