In this memoir/film class, Ms. Ison reveals how movies shaped her attitudes about life. Chapters include How to Go Crazy, How to Be Lolita, How to Be a Drunk, and How to Die in Style. In each essay, the author talks about several films that she saw during her formative years and the life lessons that she gleaned from them. For instance, How to Die in Style discusses Love Story, Harold and Maude, In Cold Blood, and Thelma & Louise, among others. Her preteen perspectives on the heavy themes of sex, death, and addiction are especially interesting. Plus, it will give you a huge list of old movies to revisit while the Belcourt’s closed!
