Sad and glittery, with quiet, lovely writing. I admire how Laura's acting is both something she uses to hide from herself, yet also how she finds herself, and can be herself. Redolent of both sides of old glamour, like THE CHAPERONE or VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, and contrasts the simple important things with the bold glitzy things, subtly and without an agenda. Very delightful!
