On Chesil Beach: Ace Representation

I trust Saoirse Ronan to choose movies that are compelling and I went into On Chesil Beach with some hope she would bring a layer to Florence I didn’t expect. Unfortunately, the movie missed a major point that could have revolutionized how we view women’s sexuality in film. Perhaps it was the source material, which…

Clay Jensen and the Manic Pixie Dream Girl
