In which: Joss Whedon fools you into thinking everything is cute and silly and funny
And then rips your heart out and laughs as you sob in a corner at the heartbreaking feels that the finale of this musical gives you ;_;
This 42 minute movie is everything perfect. The perfect cast, the perfect lyrics, the perfect ending. I’ve used this to teach all of the elements of poetry (the songs are beyond perfection for this), to talk about anti-heroes, to talk about archetypes, to discuss breaking expectations, to look at plot, to learn about foreshadowing and symbolism. I seriously love everything about it.
