    This is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966) but instead starred by the actual Virginia Woolf played by Elisabeth Moss with dirty hair. 1 year 1 month ago

    Shirley Jackson wrote The Lottery, a short story everyone read in high school, and lots more besides, so why don't I know anything about her? I'm gonna take a guess and say she was a female writer who struggled with severe anxiety AND often wrote "genre" stories, and that's probably what kept her off my university curricula. We live in a different time, and certainly, The Haunting of Hill House has created increased interest in her work and life, celebrated (after a fashion) in Shirley, starring Elizabeth Moss, tracking her writing of Hangsaman, a novel about a "lost girl" based on a real person, but also commutatively, also both Shirley and the wife of a young teacher roped into the role of nursemaid in the household for a time. By helping this witty but often cruel woman, she essentially becomes a shade of her, just as her young husband is in the process of becoming Jackson's own notoriously unfaithful husband. Great performances all around (especially Moss and as her almost sinister husband, Michael Stuhlbarg), and a Gothic feel that's right out of Jackson's own dark imagination. Its greatest asset is that it makes you want to read the work; you can't say that about every writer's "biopic". 6 months 2 weeks ago

    Just to be clear, Elisabeth Moss’’ performance is so much more than just dirty hair. Watching her is, as always, a thrilling and ever astonishing experience. 7 months 1 week ago
