Girls Season 3 Episode 9: “Flo”

Girls Season 3 Episode 9: “Flo”

One of the things I love about Girls is that it explores multiple facets of early adult life. This week is no different as Hannah learns that her Nana is dying. He mum calls her while she is out and tells her she needs to get to the hospital because she is going to die of pneumonia. The fact that Lorraine (Hannah’s Mum) is so certain that Nana Flo is going to die is weird enough and it is this certainty that sets the rest of the episode in motion. We meet Hannah’s two head strong Aunts; Margot and Sissy. The three sisters couldn’t be more different, Margot is a strong, free spirited Christian, Sissy is a career drive, money grabbing...

Movie Review: Now You See Me

Movie Review: Now You See Me

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me is a comedic thriller following the mystical escapades of four undeniably brilliant undiscovered street magicians as they are sucked into a dark and dangerous scheme at the hands of an unknown entity. The Four Horseman, as they are known consist of J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) who are all brought together by an unknown hoodied person who attends each of their incredibly impressive shows and secretly offers them a tarot card with instructions offering the notion that they have ‘been chosen’. A...

Girls Season 3, Episode 7: Beach House

Just when I was starting to mildly panic that this season of Girls was going to fail my ludicrously high expectations, an episode like Beach House goes and reaffirms my faith that Lena Dunham is the soul mate of every twenty something girl on the planet. The beach house of Beach House should otherwise be known as the honesty house as Marnie invites her three BFF’s to come for the weekend and resolve their differences, thus healing broken, distant friendships with each other. Of course, it all makes sense now, the last three episodes have had such distance on purpose, to make us feel as distant from the girls as they do from each other. An...

Girls Season 3, Episode 6: Free Snacks

Another stagnant episode of Girls this week sees little development in any character other than Hannah, who now has an advertorial job at GQ magazine. On her first day she enviably becomes the star of a meeting with her superiors as she rattles ideas off them for an article while she feasts heavily on a plethora of free snacks and drinks. Hannah is a really intelligent girl and to see her use her skills in a professional environment is actually quite refreshing, rather than talking about herself, she is talking about work and it’s a side of her I can most definitely get on board with.However, she is faced with the horrifying truth that...

Girls Season 3, Episode 5: Only Child

In the wake of David’s death, Hannah and Adam are attending his funeral. While there, they meet David’s wife…you heard me, his wife. David was a married man and happily it would seem. Despite being at his funeral, Hannah talks about her e-book with the newly widowed Mrs David. She, alarmed and upset, mentions that she was also writing a book for David and that Mill Street Press were dropping all of David’s projects. Hannah, becoming more and more inappropriate asks for the names of other publishers she could contact regarding her book, at which point she is asked to leave. Fair enough. Hannah’s meeting with potential new...
