TAGLINE: WELCOME TO THE PARTY
A fitting tagline for the christening post of this cinematic sanctuary. Let me preface this by saying that it’s about time there were a movie about a female who enjoyed being single and wasn’t a basket-case, mistress, murderer, or miserable while searching for a happily ever after. Well, “Alice” is looking for a happily ever after, but, a happily ever after with herself.
Of course most of it is at least somewhat predictable, but, that’s inevitable in this kind of thing. We all know you’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince or, in this case, find out that you don’t even need a prince at this juncture in life just because others seem to. It’s 2016, the damsel in distress to independent women ratio should have changed greatly by now.
