Reading, Writing, Arithmetic #17

Not much time goes by when I don’t have the pleasure to see Greta Gerwig on film, or indeed see or read about her on the internet.

Enjoy also broadening your horizons on movies about coming-of-age from the female perspective, as well as some French New Wave greats. We sadly honored the year anniversary of the Robin Williams’ death, I have included another such tribute here. And aptly we begin with the 25th birthday of a certain Jennifer Lawrence:
