    I find Wesley Morris’ essays bewildering in general. They seem to be based on assumptions I don’t share. In this case, his assumptions barely make sense. He assumed that Kate Hudson is the sort of actress who’d appear in a movie where she’s attacked by a shark. That’s odd, because she’s not particularly known for horror or action movies. In fact, her career has been extremely varied. But you’d think he’d check some basic facts before going to the movies, like looking at the star’s name in the ad. I read the whole article thinking: Why are you telling us this? Are other people as baffled by Morris as I am?

  • But Kate Hudson is thin and blond, like Lively is! How could you fail to confuse them?

    I suspect Morris actually knew Hudson was not in the movie and was attempting to be humorous.

    How to Paint a Girl

    With him you come to learn
    that when a man is called to paint a girl
    he paints all of himself.
    His tiny songs are the floss in her hair,
    the tulips on her blouse are the stories
    his sisters told him under half-nights long ago
    in the lost country of music. With their half-furls and
    follicles and buds and brown twigs that speak more
    of withering things. The tiny sigh, the one you almost
    didn’t see, the silence in her eyes, is the night his mother
    died while he fought rebels in the Nigerian army.
