Here is another great movie I recommend, especially if you have an arts degree. Yes YOU, the one who studied history, English or theatre (a.k.a, setting yourself up to be fully unemployable), you’ll definitely appreciate this film.
Starring Ted Mosby, an Olsen sister that isn’t Mary-Kate or Ashley and my boyfriend Zac Efron, Liberal Arts is a witty, well-written flick that focuses on a relationship between two characters who challenge each other intellectually. The premise of the movie is more or less about books and how fiction is medicine for the lonely. Yet, if you escape reality too much, you forget to live your own life. The film also teaches you about improv. If there’s one rule in improv, you can never say “no” – you always have to go with whatever is thrown at you. However, the film doesn’t focus on the theatre aspect of improv, but reminds you that we as humans have improvised our entire lives. Nothing in life is scripted, it just happens and you always have to roll with the punches.
So, to abruptly conclude – SEE THIS MOVE! Seriously.
Zibby: I sometimes feel like I’m looking down on myself. Like there’s this older, wiser me watching over this 19-year-old rough draft, who’s full of all this potential, but has to live more to catch up with that other self somehow. And, uh, I know I’ll get there. It’s just sometimes I think I want to rush the process, you know? And I don’t know, maybe, um – maybe I thought you were some sort of shortcut. Does that make any sense?
Jesse: If I wrote you, I would be like, “This is the best rough draft ever.”
