That sounds like a story there, Marie. Mine was my 7th-grade homeroom teacher, who I had for history class, Mr. Eckert. He made the difference for me going forward in school . . . and for my career.

Maybe... It feels good when some come to me and asks for advice to where to go and study History, Sociology or Political Science. At least some like my subjects. :oops:

So I finally did watch this movie, and it was better than I was anticipating. There were a number of not-very-believable moments (where did they shoot the school scenes?? And I'm Canadian, but I'll be damned if anyone has their senior prom on an ICE RINK. Please.)
I was impressed with Eisley's consistent accent and performance in general, but, like Helen, I had some problems with the recurrent nudity--specifically, how it was all Maria's. Like, I get that the most reasonable (?) way that Airam would first manifest would be in a mirror, but did Maria have to be masturbating in front of it?? She couldn't just be brushing her teeth or something?? I did feel bad for the character--she wasn't just bullied, she was constantly surrounded by shitty hypocritical mean people. Her father's business was reforming women's bodies because nobody's acceptable in their current form, her mother's a non-entity, there are no other reasonable adults in evidence... Some vindication was defensible!
Here's something telling, though--I watched about a month ago and now I have no idea how it ended. Hm.

Hilary, I had to think about it before it came to me: The whirling Mom and daughter on the bed "turns into" Mom and twin daughters on the bed. :shock:
