…But truly, writing a statement as bland as this one should be illegal:
The only stories I’m interested in are the ones that tell the truth. Maybe it’s not my truth, or even the truth of the person sitting beside me in the theatre, but I want to see films made by people telling their truths.
I’m not going to link to the article, because it’s a review of Obvious Child--an abortion-themed comedy. Ha ha! What could be so funny?!? I’ve read pro-life reviews saying I should watch it, to be in touch with what people out there are thinking. This may well be true, but right now, I won’t. Because I can’t. Because there’s always been a limit for me–how much I have to repress what I’m really thinking and feeling simply to get by. Going to a theatre where others may laugh at child killing surpasses that limit just now. I will perhaps consider renting this DVD later on with people I trust. So, for now, if you need me I will be 1) at work 2) outside in the great outdoors enjoying summer 2a) in the pool. Thank you.by
