One of the cool things about living in LA is being able to attend free movie screenings. Last night, I went to see a screening of the new movie The East. This eco-thriller stars Brit Marling who also happens to be my girl crush. She is intelligent, talented, creative and beautiful. Recently, I have seen The Sound of My Voice, Another Earth and The East – all movies that she has not only starred in but also co-written. Each of these movies stayed with me for days, even weeks, after I saw them. They all leave you wanting more. After the screening last night, there was a Q & A with Brit (actress, co-writer, girl crush) and Zal Batmanglij (director and co-writer). It was awesome to hear them talk about their lives, their successes and goals for their movies together. The whole experience was interesting and inspiring.
If you haven’t seen any of movies that I mentioned, please do. I loved all 3 of them.
