I’m glad the Canadians get it first, since it’s their story (America gets it May 12 on Netflix), but… I think my little ole heart just broke into a thousand butterflies of sheer delight. I love the original 80’s films, but I’m so excited for a new adaptation I can hardly stand it.

I got a bit soppy watching it, and then my mom said, “Aww, it makes me want to cry,” and around a giant lump in my throat, mist in my eyes, I said, with all eloquence, “Yup.”
