Lucy Warriner / Mia: As we go down life’s highway, you go your way …. and I go mine.
— The Awful Truth (1937) // Love and Other Catastrophes (1996)
One of the reasons I love the 1996 Australian film Love and Other Catastrophes so much (besides the fact that it is the only film I know of about students majoring in Cinema Studies … not FILM PRODUCTION, but CINEMA STUDIES.. and there is a difference.. and if you’ve studied Cinema Studies, watch this movie) is that Mia and Dani’s entire relationship in the film is one big, homage to Lucy and Jerry’s relationship in The Awful Truth. And it works .. beautifully.
