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 that fans have been craving for literally decades, but the movie is also apparently like, good. Like, really good. Apparently, Moshfegh herself prefers the adaptation to her own book.
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.
Plus, it’s the mid-60s, so you know the fashion is popping off.
