Broadcast News (#89)
I thought this was wonderful. Smart, funny, honest, and incredibly genuine at moments. Best lines:
Paul: “It must be nice to always believe you know better, to always think you’re the smartest person in the room.”
Jane: “No. It’s awful.”
Blair: “Except for socially, you’re my role model.”
Seriously, I really liked it. We all know I love William Hurt, so of course I liked seeing him here even if his character wasn’t necessarily the most likable person ever. Holly Hunter is terrific, though, and i”ve got to remember to look up more movies with her from the 80s. Great direction and script from James L. Brooks. I’m so pleased that it got all the Oscar noms it did and even if it doesn’t have the standard Hollywood ending, I really liked that. It’s a movie I’d happily watch again.
