Favorite Performance:

The Cast of The Breakfast Club (1985)

“Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to spend a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think it’s stupid for you to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us. In the simplest terms with the most convienient definitions. But what we found out is that each of us is a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

Sincerely Yours, The Breakfast Club.”

“What do you think you are, for Chrissake, crazy or somethin’? Well you’re not! You’re not! You’re no crazier than the average asshole out walkin’ around on the streets and that’s it.”

favorite performance:

Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed in Wild (2014)

“What if I forgave myself? I thought. What if I forgave myself even though I’d done something I shouldn’t have? What if I was a liar and a cheat and there was no excuse for what I’d done other than because it was what I wanted and needed to do? What if I was sorry, but if I could go back in time I wouldn’t do anything differently than I had done? What if I’d actually wanted to fuck every one of those men? What if heroin taught me something? What if yes was the right answer instead of no? What if what made me do all those things everyone thought I shouldn’t have done was what also had got me here? What if I was never redeemed? What if I already was?”

Favorite Performance:

Katie Chang as Rebecca Ahn in The Bling Ring (2013)

According to pieced-together testimony, Rachel Lee (renamed Rebecca in the film) was the mastermind behind the Bling Ring. “Sofia encouraged me to downplay the meanness. It creates this creepy character – you don’t want to piss her off, but you also know she’s not mean either. She’s just way too focused on getting these things.”
