Mermaids: The University of St Andrews Performing Arts Fund The Hollywood Effect



There's a monster in your closet. Your first kiss was magical. Your heroes are perfect. Your closet is empty. Your first kiss sucked. Your heroes are flawed. Movies present a version of "normal" life we think we ought to conform to. They gloss over the ugly bits, giving us an ideal we believe attainable. Realise this "normal" and "ideal" life are in fact jargon, we are free. Free to live. To be ourselves.
