Oh, and it’s 105min.
He’s sad that he missed his chance. He tries to rationalize it a couple of times throughout the movie, but finally admits that obviously if he were to do it all over again he’d do it differently.
‘“This is you” is meant to signal her recognition of the good part of him, the part that is possibly still worth trying to get to know.’
Not, it’s not. She’s just skipping through a couple of other messages people left, finds his, says “This is you”, and the film ends just as she’s started listening to it.
Margot at the Wedding was complete shit. This wasn’t complete shit. It might have partly been my low expectations going in, but I quite enjoyed it. Not everything is as inexplicable as Gabe makes out, and it’s actually quite funny in places. Ben Stiller’s character is basically an asshole, yes, and if you don’t like movies about horrible people then skip it. But Rhys Ifans’ and Greta Gerwig’s actions make enough sense within the movie.
“Greta Gerwig seems thoughtful and confident” – no, she doesn’t. In the first 5 minutes alone it it’s revealed her “bosses” are three weeks late on paying her, she refuses cash from one of them but then needs to borrow money from her friend later that night, and then she goes home with a guy she only barely wants to sleep with. She’s the complete opposite of confident and assertive.

One of the girls is his Brother’s kid, she’s back from college, so that’s her house that she’s throwing a party in.
Also, they’re not just vacationing, he’s opening up a hotel over there. So we do kinda get an idea of what the brother does for a living.
