This YA adaptation is firmly in the fun rom-com canon

Let me start this off by saying: I don’t love much more than I love everything Brokeback Mountain. The short story by Annie Proulx. The Ang Lee film starring Heath Ledger (gone too soon) and Jake Gyllenhaal. All of it.

It’s why, no offense to Swifties, I can’t be too mad at Gyllenhaal even after listening to “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version).” It’s why, during a 10-hour layover in London last month, I used 3 of them to watch the Brokeback Mountain play on the West End, starring Mike Faist and Lucas Hedges (a slay by the way, go before it closes). So I will never say a bad word against that classic piece of cinema.

Judy Greer and Alexander Skarsgård star as parents trying to make sense of tragedy in Michael Shannon's directorial debut

There's a lot to be said about Eric LaRue. It’s Michael Shannon’s directorial debut. It’s a meditative adaptation of Brett Neveu’s 2002 play. And it stars Judy Greer, Alison Pill, Tracy Letts, Paul Sparks, and a just about unrecognizable Alexander Skarsgård. The latter is what the film will undoubtedly be remembered for, but let’s start from the top.

Eric LaRue premiered on June 10th at Tribeca Film Festival. This highly anticipated drama is a fresh perspective on a timely and important topic: gun violence. The film follows two parents (Greer and Skarsgård) whose son commits a school shooting. After murdering three of his high school peers, the title character Eric LaRue is sent to prison. In the aftermath, his parents struggle to repair and adjust to life without their son and as pariahs in their cookie-cutter suburban town.

The film poses a number of questions. Whose to “blame” when such a shocking tragedy occurs? Who takes responsibility? How does a community heal? And what is our responsibility to ourselves?

We’ve been talking a lot about It Girls this summer. There are Fashion It Girls like Bella Hadid and Zendaya. There are eternal empresses like Chloe Sevigny. And with the tornado-like trend-cycle permeating style and pop culture, cultural ephemera breeds icons like Sofia Richie for the quiet luxury crowd.

And this summer, you simply can not talk about It Girls without talking about Lily-Rose Depp.
