Oh good. I can see it this coming Friday or weekend a few minutes walk from my home, and The Worst Person in the World today. It’s been over two years since attending a movie theatre and not all international films end up on iTunes.

Bleak but certainly riveting and an eye-opening history lesson as the criminalization and judicial cruelty was West Germany while East Germany did not have the same outdated legislation on the books. The type of ending is not unexpected but the specific way in which it is played out is startlingly clever.
