A bug flew up my nose while I was feeding my employer’s horses, making me lose my balance and fall into the water trench. Now I’m laying on her couch with an ice pack while her dogs vie for my attention. 

Could be worse.

I HAVE LITERALLY BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR SOMEONE TO TELL ME, “YOU’RE SO STRAIGHTFORWARD,” SO I COULD SAY: “STRAIGHT? NO. FORWARD? YES.”

I’ve literally said this and it was one of the best moments of my life.

I was sitting in the break room at work today and apparently I had this really dopey looking smile on my face and one of my coworkers leans over and says “I know that smile. You’re thinking about your crush aren’t you? I’ve been married 36 years, I can tell.”

I was thinking about Star Trek.

The Little Mermaid's Twisted, Sofia Coppola-esque Origins

The news that Sofia Coppola will direct a live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid probably, rightfully will be lauded as an encouraging development for women in Hollywood. There are a number of successful female directors in the film industry (although not nearly enough), but it’s still shockingly rare that one gets assigned such a high-profile studio project. 

Yet the producers of the film deserve props not (only) for choosing a woman director, but for choosing the perfect director for the story they’re going to tell.

Coppola’s films are known for their aesthetic beauty and moody, dream-like atmosphere. But her works all share something else, too. She’s not a political filmmaker per se, but the world that she depicts is one in which women are oppressed—not necessarily by men, but by cultural myths. Whether portraying a strictly traditional monarchy (Marie Antoinette), a fame- and image-obsessed society (The Bling Ring), or the all-American horny teenager (The Virgin Suicides), Coppola’s films rebel against a world that dictates the rules for women and then punishes them for playing by them.

The Little Mermaid follows the exact same template, but takes the punishment even further.
