hugo ♥

This has not been a great year for me.

It started out with two heart-shattering break-ups-- the really, really bad kind, where all you can do for a week or two afterward is cry and get sick.  One was with someone who I genuinely thought was the love of my life. The other was with my exact opposite. I was his anima, he was my animus.

The summer culminated with the sudden and devastating loss of my dad.

I'm emotionally exhausted.

Life doesn't feel magical anymore.

Tonight I saw Hugo with my mom.

It's such a beautiful movie, visually and thematically.  It felt so poetic.

It was reminiscent of Amélie, especially in the color story and the mix of reality and fantasy.

It made me feel more alive than I have in months.  I plan on seeing it at least two or three more times.

Have you seen Hugo?  What did you think of it?

  1. Hi Julie! It's Kaleigh's roommate, Emily. I loved Hugo too! And I definitely know what you mean by it being reminiscent of Amelie as that is also one of my favorite movies.

    Hope to see you soon!

  2. well hi there miss emily! Wasn't it an amazing movie? So, so good. I hope to see you soon too! The impromptu sleepover was so much ridiculous fun. Hope your end-of-semester stuff is going well!
