in her words

Arriving in Nantucket was as charming as homemade apple pie. The airport looked more like a country club with a certain quaintness one never associates with the hustle and bustle of travel. Driving through the island, every house, coffee shop and dog salon was built in the same style, with smokey grey slates and white shutters. It was the WASPy dollhouse I always wished I had. Arriving at the Dreamland Theater I picked up my press badge, which read “Mebecca Beckport”— close enough. I had made it. That’s what mattered.

On Chesil Beach

I arrived 20 minutes early to the Soho movieplex because I was terrified, terrified that like every other place in Manhattan, it would be unbelievably crowded. Somehow, the Tuesday 10:45 p.m. screening of “On Chesil Beach” was surprisingly unattended. So I was left to sit alone in the third row of the empty theater as I snacked quietly on the Apple Jacks I managed to smuggle in from the corner deli. The film began with stunning, expansive landscape shots of the seaside and the sweeping tide and I felt instantly transported to the English coast, a place I happened to be just one year ago.

Kirsten Dunst in "Virgin Suicides"

The film raises questions on helicopter parenting, fetishizing tragedy and the loneliness of girlhood with such expertise and nuance that it is hard to believe it was Coppola’s first feature film.

A J. Keller property

Rent: there was a musical devoted to it, you tend to forget about it and apparently it’s too damn high. With J. Keller, paying rent is a breeze which is one reason that makes them the best landlord in Ann Arbor. Boasting some of the best properties in Ann Arbor and strong community connections, J.Keller is a dependable, honorable and responsible place to ensure a positive off-campus housing experience based right here in Ann Arbor.

Cottage Inn

Pizza solves anything, but good pizza solves everything. Cottage Inn has been my pizza of choice since I arrived in Ann Arbor. It makes game days better, girls nights cheesier and Tuesday afternoons breezier. Good pizza solves everything because it puts a smile on your face, it makes your love life seem less pathetic and the world’s crises float away like the smell of oregano. The party platter is the best $25 you will ever spend and your friends will love you forever. The crust is buttery and bready with the perfect bite of chewiness.

The Rogue Initiative

With feats in entertainment, technology and production, The Rogue Initiative is a true triple threat. The Rogue Initiative builds worlds with the aid of technology and immersive storytelling in a way that goes beyond the mediums they explore. Through film, television and video games, the tech-fueled, entertainment-driven and collaboration-based start-up is making waves in Hollywood and beyond. The Daily had a phone interview with University alum Brad Etheridge, The Rogue Initiative’s Creative Executive, about the power of a story and the future of immersive content.

Remember the name Michael Stuhlbarg.

'Ready Player One' is in theaters March 29

The film adaptation may be a hit, but I have a feeling it’s headed for Game Over.

Rory and Lorelei

But “Gilmore Girls” manages to capture the essence of a mother-daughter relationship built on love and respect, not fear and animosity.

Hopefully, in addition to providing visibility to the underrepresented, “Disobedience” will tell a story of intimacy and passion that has yet to be told.
