I love A. O. Scott

Jul 27 2014 Published by under Uncategorized

From A.O. Scott's review of the new Woody Allen movie:

Stanley has a briefly seen, occasionally mentioned fiancée named Olivia (Catherine McCormack), who is a fellow skeptic and an intellectual peer, meaning that she has no chance with him.

It is too much to hope that less than plastic-beautiful women can be heroines or leads or loved in movies (the way that less than beautiful men are). But smart women? Probably not.
