mean girls

On Friday 21st July, after a takeaway from Aftertaste, we all watched Mean Girls on DVD - this was Maisie's end-of-term treat evening. It was a pretty good film.

Something which did strike me, though it's a fairly peripheral detail to the film itself as a film (and not something which I considered to be a lack in the film), is that if it were being made today (rather than 2004) I'm pretty sure it would not have only one gay character (a male best friend) and the only foreground reference to lesbianism would not be a false, bullying rumour that a character was a lesbian.
