Last week Jenny Lewis gave us a girl-power fueled frenzy of celebrity cameos but Jack Antonoff’s video “I Wanna Get Better” for his side project Bleachers is a lollapalooza of prominent pop-culture personalities.
Lena Dunham directed the video, first of all, so like check plus on that (but duh that’s his GF so no surprise there).
But who is IN FRONT of the camera? Umm.. Retta (dope), Kimiko Glenn (yep, Brook Soso from OITNB), Mary Kay Place (this took me a while but she plays in the unforgettable gem that is Sweet Home Alabama and My So Called Life), Rizwan Manji (dude…I’ve looked past Outsourced), and Mike Doyle (Green Lantern…weird, but OK).
The video is fun and quirky but what else are we to expect from Lena really?
God Help the Girl is a retro-beat-indie-pop_scottish_quirky_delightful (or so I am assuming) film by Stuart Murdoch from that band we all love to love Belle & Sebastian.
I for one am excited to see a film using Scotland as its background that doesn’t include Irvine Welsh protagonists or stripteasing steel workers. I am also giddy because, come on, look at the trailer, it looks like every Wes Anderson loving, tea-cozy using, vinyl record playing girl’s dream.
We can all agree that High School Reunion episodes and movies are truly the best episodes ever. It is a dreadful and awkward pain in the ass to go to ours but oh the joy of watching it unravel, comedy style, on TV.
