Anne Hathaway plays an older “Carol” figure in the new Sundance hit based on Otessa Moshfegh’s 2015 debut novel “Eileen” and the girls, as they say, are living.
Not only is this the much-awaited Anne Hathaway dyke moment fans have been craving for literally decades, the movie is apparently like, good. Like, really good. Apparently Moshfegh herself prefers the adaptation to her own book.

The retro blonde coif, the gigantic Sapphic energy radiating from this still–word has it the girls even share a steamy gay kiss. It’s our first true piece of good news in a year that’s already turning out to be quite awful.
2023 will be the year of anne hathaway supremacy on dyke twitter i can feel it pic.twitter.com/PDVBZACtDO
So what is Eileen about? Well, true to the Moshfegh novel, it’s about a chronic masturbator (the titular Eileen) who meets a stunning coworker while working as a secretary at a prison.
It’s the mid-60s, so you know the fashion is popping off.

Is this the true people’s Joker? Hathaway sure thinks so: bumpers OFF, people:

Shades of CAROL, but more twisted: the Ottessa Moshfegj adaptation of EILEEN. Thomas McKenzie is superb and Anne Hathaway (as a prison psychologist) seems to be channeling her inner Jessica Lang. Beautifully filmed. Audible gasps in the audience. #Sundance23 #sundance pic.twitter.com/1FfMoN9Wmq

Also, Hathway’s sapphic Sundance fashion is serving.
