Emma Thompson in The Winter Guest
'She's one of us, but more so. A heightened version of ourselves, a conductor of the sensual world. An ultrahuman.'
- Simon Price, The Quietus
The Egregiously Overlooked Underappreciated Individuals:
Hugh James Calum Laurie (1959-)
"In the past I used to worry that he beat himself up too much. Goodness knows cockiness and conceit are unattractive, but I used to have to spend so much time telling him how great he was. I won’t go so far as to say that he now knows how great he is, but he’s a lot less prone to tearing into himself than he once was."
- Stephen Fry
Premiere of Mary Poppins (August 27, 1964)
If you claim to be a feminist and you shame girls for wanting to do traditional things like take their husband’s last name or be a house wife then you are doing it all completely wrong.
Feminism isn’t an elite group who defeats gender norms, it’s a group who accepts ALL women’s choices.
Mary Poppins (USA, 1964)
