Internet find of the day: Hannah Horvath, age 65, is still binge eating, still talking her friends’ ears off, and still trying to be the voice of her generation.
Written and Directed by Gail Lerner (Will & Grace, Happy Endings, Animal Practice), this little gem is exactly what it sounds like: Girls + 38 (ish?) years. And guess what? Some things (themes!) never change.
1) Watching Martin Starr go to bonetown with 65 year old Hannah Horvath in spandex: “Why didn’t you get naked?” (Note: I would watch Martin Starr go to bonetown with anyone, but this was particularly entertaining.)
2) An aging Marnie, still clinging to her identity (does she still have a pretty person job?): “I am very beautiful all of the time.” Wendie Malick does look pretty good for her age though.
3) Friendship struggles.
Hannah: “At least I’m [a better friend] than Jessa. I read my essay about giving a guy with Parkinsons a handjob to nine semi-interested people at a Starbucks last week, and she didn’t even come. I mean seriously, what is she so busy doing?”
4) Hannah eating a lobster with her bare hands as Shosh admires a 9 month old baby: “You are tooootally young and beautiful. I wanna be you.”
