I Wanna Be The Mystery In The Room


"I wanna bust the world wide open the way you do when you’re filled with youth. I wanna engage with people and lovers and fellow cops. I wanna be physical and I also wanna ask the big questions. I wanna taste the tastes and fix the problems. I wanna run headlong into chaos and bad guys and darkness and pranks and fun and laugh, laugh, laugh. I wanna be the best friend and I wanna be the greatest Aunt and the most complicated daughter. I wanna be the mystery in the room. I wanna be known. Embrace your Grace."

Clearly it was written by the marketing department. It's even more clear when you hear Holly Hunter's delivery. There's something in it, though. The character is admirable and screwed up and compelling and this tries very hard to express that in commercial form. "The most complicated daughter" "I wanna be the mystery in the room" "I wanna run headlong into chaos and bad guys and darkness and pranks."

Makes me think it might be time for a new version of this post.
