100,000,000 times YES!
This is my biggest problem with not just older films/books/works of art.. but like even things as recent and prevalent as the "After series". Had no idea about it until it hit Netflix, but once I did and ran with it down the rabbit hole, damn was I disappointed.
And even though I know better.. part of me still felt so bad for the misunderstood (read as emotionally manipulative and immature) bad boy, and I totally understood every action the young woman took to try to chase/help/fix him..
Le sigh, let me get off my soap box. This piece was incredible! Thank you for sharing.
