    A Jewish lesbian and the wife of a Nazi soldier fall in love in early 1940s Berlin, based on a true story. The film itself was a little too ambiguous in its storytelling for me but I liked the premise and the main cast is excellent.

    This is the last dvd I got from netflix before canceling my dvd service (which I've had since 2004, so, it's a major life change to get rid of it tbh).

    Formulaic but I still really liked it - I always dig behind-the-scenes show business stories and the addition of Emma Thompson and her spectacular blazer collection is the perfect hook. It’s interesting the film addresses issues of sexism and racism (and tokenism) in the workplace while also imagining a world where there’s been a woman late night host for over 20 years.

    I don't know if anything will ever move me the way this film does. It makes me yearn for something but I don't know what, and it's always had that effect. Love is not a strong enough word for how I feel about it.

    I also really really miss Adrienne Shelly.
