From time to time it’s good to have a flapjack and time off. When you have such a classic dessert like flapjack, you should also watch something you really like, possibly from the 80s.
I love Francis Ford Coppola’s films, but the one which is perfect with this kind of nibble is ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’.
I bet there are many people dreading their school reunion. And many might remember that one odd guy they would sleep with, if they went back to school years. Or if they went back, they would do everything differently. Well, maybe if you could time travel you could try to change things, but probably the only thing you could succeed in is ‘to take better care of your teeth’.
The film is beautifully shot, dialogues are a perfection and the cast is star studded. I love the fact that Peggy’s younger sister is played by a young Sofia Coppola. Aaaaww.
My favourite character will always remain Michael Fitzsimmons. He’s a bit of a beatnik wannabe but also has the best lines. When Peggy says that they had a glorious night together and one day he’s going to write about it, he says: ‘Yeah, I can dig that. Bittersweet perfection. Dogs of lust on leashes of memory’. I also totally agree with him on his judgment of Hemingway.
So put your hair in a ponytail ( if you have hair of a suitable length, or still have hair), make yourself flapjacks (not strudel this time), wrap yourself in a blanket and watch ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’. Maybe after all, you wouldn’t like to change anything in your past….
