I’m still auditioning for my family’s love. You know, I still hold out this kind of thing where they’ll be nicer if I play along. …Guys, it’s tough. Most of us…you wrestle with your family your whole life. People who don’t, I think that’s like the most blessed resource in the world. Because the rest of us are caught in a dynamic that doesn’t always leave much room for you to be compassionate to yourself.

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.

Eleanor and Park, the eponymous leads of Rainbow Rowell’s breakout YA novel, cannot be played by Shailene Woodley or Ansel Elgort or Miles Teller or any of the leads of the aforementioned adaptations. Park is half-Korean, and Eleanor is overweight. They are not going to look like any teen romantic movie leads in the history of ever. There’s a lot of diversity in YA literature these days, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was more diversity in YA than in any other genre of literature. This makes sense, it’s a lucrative genre, the money allows conventions to be broken and risks to be taken. Still, the books that have survived the book-to-film adaptation all share in common status quo casting. It’s impossible to do E&P with status quo casting. The film is going to have to bring in new talent. That new talent is going to be on billboards and in commercials and in pop-up ads. Every time we see these faces, we’re going to see that this is what a leading lady and a leading man can look like. When audiences attend the film they’re going to see that this is what a great love story can look like.
