But there’s also a lot of awkward scenes of Samwise giving Frodo strawberry-scented bubble baths and a LOT of hobbit songs and poetry. And while the other movies in the trilogy kept that spectacle, nothing quite compares to seeing the Shire for the very first time. I said, irritated that he’d ruined our moment, but so unbelievably happy still that I beamed at him anyway.

My mom had made her famous cheesecake bars, and Michael had met us at the door and offered us drinks like he was a grown-up. These ‘90s era drug-addled and fame-addicted New York young adults were the first influencers, appearing regularly in the homes of millions of viewers each day via daytime talk shows such as Geraldo Rivera’s. Painter throws them all into the mix, but they feel fresh, because she makes us care— and oh boy, did I care about what was going to happen to these characters! The more time she spends with Wes though and the more she doesn’t connect with Michael like she thought she would, the more Liz wonders if the movies have all the answers.

Wes grinned and started talking, but I ignored that tool and watched Michael speak and laugh and be as sweetly charming as I’d remembered.

Their chemistry ignited one of the great Hollywood love stories, on and off-screen, and makes this a rare pseudo-noir with a happy ending. It’s Liz’s senior year, a time meant to be rife with milestones perfect for any big screen, and she needs Wes’s help. This little indie starred a host of early 2000s-era young talent who were often in the tabloids themselves, including Wilmer Valderrama, Macaulay Culkin, and Mia Kirshner.At one point, my mother was high-fiving Michael after stealing home base in her floral sundress and wedge sandals. But this is obviously a mother-daughter activity and it would be natural that Liz would feel like she was missing something. Liz gave me some Lara Jean ( To All the Boys I've Loved Before) and Pippa ( Leading Lines) vibes - which I was so here for. My favorite thing about music—when you played it loud enough through good headphones (and I had the best)—was that it softened the edges of the world. I'm a huge fan of making playlists for every feeling, season and reason; I always say that music is like reading for the soul.
