I don’t know why girls care so much about their number anyway.
That is really kinky and weird.
An entire love story could be told with just these two images. I mean, do you even need the context to know all the emotions that were conveyed in this small scene?
And yet, the context is actually what makes this scene. That Dani is finally reaching out to someone. That she’s reaching out to CHARLIE after several years of not doing it. That he confirms her faith and she’s reaching for him, but he has to pull away because of what’s going on. The way he feels his own fingers that she brushed, and how his withdrawal isn’t a rejection, but rather a statement of his care and of his love. He pulls away for her safety, even as he’s walking to his own death. And the way her hand curls in on itself gripping nothing. And how in the next shot, her face is closing up again from the openess and hope that the previous shot showed painted across her face.
This COULD tell a story without context, but the story it tells IN context is so much more resonant and amazing. Charlie and Dani beat up my heart and leave it aching in the best of ways.
