Mermaids (1990)

I watched this last night after not seeing it for 15-20 years.

What a fun little movie this is! It made me nostalgic for not only the 60s that this movie portrays, but also the 90s when a movie like this could still get made.

The New England aesthetic is so beautiful and I love the attention to detail of the changing seasons. The dialogue is wonderful and all of Charlotte’s inappropriate, half-baked thoughts felt so real to me and what I actually would be thinking when I was a teenager, especially all her thoughts about Joe. And Joe, man, what a stunning hunk of a man.

Cher is so effortlessly cool as Mrs. Flax. Each character is just so unique and quirky and it really makes you long for the freedom of the 60s and people not being such horrid cunts to each other back then. Even little Christina Ricci is fantastically weird as Kate.

It drags a little bit in the middle, and Charlotte’s virgin pregnancy is a little bit much, but it’s a classic nonetheless. I just felt like I was home watching this. This is the type of movie that just feels so right to me, and it could never get made today 🙁
