    What, no love for the ladies? Jezebel with Bette Davis, Mr Skeffington also with Bette Davis (You can just add about half her movies), Young Adult with Charlize Theron, The Lady Eve with Barbara Stanwyck, This Woman is dangerous with Joan Crawford. Redemption ain’t just for the boys.

    YES–excellent point about a recurring theme in Davis’s career, as well as Stanwyck, Crawford, etc. They don’t make those meaty, dramatic roles for ladies like they used to.

    I would say Young Adult is a [fantastic] film about a person utterly failing to redeem herself.

    And that is why Young Adult is awesome. We need more failed redemption movies. Cause that’s how life really is. (At least my life, I don’t know about you guys. I’m doomed.)
