Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.
Romeo and Juliet
well my morning has been awfully productive. I worked on some extension history. And then I watched (for the very first time) Breakfast At Tiffany’s. (yes. I know I’ve had this movie for ages. Since Valentine’s day actually :s LOL)
I was so confused by the time era. The only time periods I really know well are now and Regency. I understand American Civil War a bit too (by the way when I say I “know” time periods I mean I know what it is like for the average joe? social customs and expectations and stuff you learn more from literature than from history per se) because of Gone With the Wind and Little Women but Breakfast at Tiffany’s confused me because I had no idea what was “okay” and what was not “okay”. (living alone? smoking? drinking? wearing skirts or pants? hair up or down? or did stuff like that not really matter?) But then I realised that Holly is her own person and she really grew on me. The whole premise of the movie was balanced on the success of her character. If she wasn’t so endearing, this movie wouldn’t be the iconic thing it is today. But yes, that’s just my ignorant take on it :P She was adorable. And so this movie joins my mental list of “movies that I would love to watch again.. and again and again”
I would say I am a more book person than a movie person, but I do enjoy cinema. :)
