This is lovely and I only wish it were longer. Sober sex with a new person is still terrifying to me.

Anne Hathaway provides ample evidence of why it is best to NOT cast the actor who says "it's my dream role!"

If she stopped suffering for even two minutes to notice anyone else in a scene with her, I didn't see it.

Whoa, the irony. The RCMP needs an "It gets better video" for people IN the RCMP. It's not just coping with the rape of female officers by a male officer and heaps of sexual harassment carefully suppressed Boy-scout style on top of that, but mitfulls of current scandals, and a history of brutality stretching back to the beginning. What they don't mention is the RCMP persecuted gays for decades, like every other police force in North America. Part of the reason these people suffered in youth is because their parents were told by the authorities that gays were mentally ill communist criminals and nobody went out of their way to correct that.

Given the widespread sexual harassment, and that these people are from the biggest concentration of Mounties in Canada, odds are that at least some of them have been harassed at work, but have taken it on the chin. If they are in future, odds are there won't be a damn thing they can do about it. Once you become a target in the RCMP for dissent about anything, it's a lot worse than high school. I met a civillian member who testified that missing women reports she took were ignored in the pickton case. She was vilified on tv, on radio, in the papers and in an op-ed. And that was a pretty small matter. A lot of individual members are good people, but if you embarass the organization it will fuck you up.

If you're going to like this, like the individuals, or the effort to reach out to young people, but DO NOT go away feeling like the mounties are a basket of cuddly justice bunnies and that Canada is inherently nice because it just isn't so.

@Linette Ooh, short and voluptuous and dark-haired and sassy with eyeglasses is a thing someone might fantasize about being? Now that is a pleasant revelation to contemplate...

When I was about eleven, I read the entire Little House series about nine times through. I'd finish the last one and start immediately on the first. Those books were awesome.

And Emily...O, Emily. I was haunted by the scene where she saves the little boy with her dream-drawing. And I think of her every time I'm tempted to over-emphasize something...no italics! That girl was rocking.
