When you graduate college you easily sashay into the world of adulthood, start a career, and get serious, right? Wrong. Marnie has left college, but not her drinking habits and her bad taste in bad men. It would be sad if it weren’t so funny.

My absolute hands down favourite genre and this is a fantastic showcase for it.
Perfect performances and a wonderful feel to the film. Really strong pace and quintessentially abrupt ending. This film really highlights the internal struggles felt by those in this age bracket and time of life and subtly begins to explore the nuances of fluid and equivocal emotion in a time of self-progression.
I just absolutely loved this. Not entirely sure why. I think it has an awful lot to do with Kate Dollenmayer. Just beautifully played. No idea why she just disappeared from the scene. Lovely lovely lovely. Might even watch it twice.
Wow, this is a great film. Marnie is resplendent. And I very much agree with the below or above, whichever, comment about how well it depicts the small emotions. It does so super realistically and there is so much joy to be had in the recognition of these stray voltages.
probably the best educational film on how trying desperately to always play the nice and the zen and to never let it go but down the bottle, can make you start to rot. smile and wave, bujalski, smile and wave!
A kind of romantic-comedy populated by socially-inept characters. Well, that's a limiting description because the film is not easily categorized. Other films I thought of: *Ruby in Paradise*, *She's Gotta Have It* and *Annie Hall*. The main character, Marnie, is sort of a Gen-X Annie Hall.
I think this film is absolutely brilliant. In fact, the film manages to encapsulate an entire generation of young Americans. The pointlessness, the lack of conviction, the fear of saying anything definite - all of these are traits of America's generation of extremely nice yet hopelessly confused generation of college graduates. Stunning!
