Matthew EngreviewsMaggie’s Plan, a bundle of chaotic comic joy from the underrated Rebecca Miller and leading lady Greta Gerwig:
“In perfect tandem with Miller, Gerwig has constructed an invaluable heroine in Maggie, whose maternal wishes aren’t the stuff of a one-dimensional, only-in-the-movies fanatic but a believably modern working woman, full of her own confusions, to be sure, but also her own convictions as well.”
A few notes: - Whybourne’s Wild Hair is my favorite thing. - That is a tiny fireball in his hand (for obvious reasons) - I chose to put Christine in her “field” outfit rather than a dress because I feel like it fits her personality better - I didn’t have a rifle for Christine, sadly, but I did manage to find a pistol. - I desperately want to make Persephone and Maggie <3
In honor of the ridiculous influx of baby pictures recently, here’s one from the vault
When 8-year-old mare Maggy Hawk gave birth to her third foal on May 9, 2002, the young mare immediately rejected her colt. In the 12 day interval before a nurse mare could be found, 9-year-old Lauren, daughter of breeder John Silvertand, hand fed the colt milk from an old Coors Lite bottle
This little colt, of course, grew up to be 2005 Preakness/Belmont winner and perennial fan favorite Afleet Alex
