Well that was special

I was supposed to do another Winterlude post tonight. Instead, I ended up watching Georgy Girl for the first time. I had no idea. All I can say now is how happy I am to be living in this time/place, where even if misogyny is still rampant, it's hard to get away with touting babynapping and marrying an elderly lech because he's rich as a happy ending for a homely girl.


I hear ya, sister.

On the other hand, how gorgeous was Charlotte Rampling back then?







Her performance - and the relationship between her character Meredith and Vanessa Redgrave's Georgy - was so like Effy and Panda's from Skins. Georgy put Meredith on the same kind of pedestal and Meredith took advantage of it and played off Georgy's insecurities in the same way. It was so familiar it felt a little weird to watch - it had the same self-destructive intensity - and I'm sure it influenced the later characters.



But seriously. Guuuuuh.
