I Don't Understand Relationships

I really don’t. I haven’t understood them since the first time I had my heart broken.

It was my freshman year of high school, and half way through the year, a relationship I had been a part for a few months came to a really awkward, crappy ending (She kinda just stopped talking to me, and started hanging out with other guys). 623 more words

To Rome With Love (2012)

If Midnight in Paris was a winning reminder of Woody’s 80s magic realism phase, his followup takes us back even further to the charming absurdism of his 70s films. 583 more words
