Anyone want to throw a girl some movie suggestions?
Here’s a list of movies I enjoy to get an idea of what I’m usually into: Ghost World, The Virgin Suicides, Thirteen, Jawbreaker, Heathers, Pretty Persuasion, Spring Breakers, White Oleander, Prozac Nation, Girl, Interrupted, Mysterious Skin, Juno, Young Adult, Election, Welcome to the Dollhouse, But I’m a Cheerleader, Cracks, etc. (Basically any kind of coming of age story with a female protagonist, usually dark comedies).

Artist: Rachael Yamagata
