WHY YOU SHOULD GO WATCH WADJDA RIGHT NOW IMMIDIETLY
takes place in saudi arabia
all characters muslim
really, really well written. it’s essentially a slice-of-life comedy about a 10-year-old-girl trying to save up enough money to buy a bike, and the roadblocks she hits while doing so.
all the characters, most of which are women, are fleshed-out, enjoyable, and given their own seperate character arc. every single arc just hits it right on the head. it’s basically a cast of well-written, well-acted muslim characters.
first saudi arabian feature film to be directed by a woman
it’s funny. like, really fucking funny.
oh my god.
go watch wadjda.
here
here i even have a link you can watch it right now
there is literally no reason to watch this perfect fucking film right now
if you like well written comedies with a mostly-female, all-muslim, all person-of-color cast, just watch this ok
i’M NOT K IDDING SOMEONE WATCH WADJDA SO THEY CAN TALK ABOUT IT WITH ME

Why did you guys break up?

A lot of reasons, mostly on my end. Distance, being at different points in life, changing feelings…. I still care about this person as intensely as before, but in a different way. 

If you want to know more about it, please come off anon- I’m ok talking about it more specifically but not to a greyface.
