The Girl Next Door was my gateway movie to all good movies. I had always enjoyed watching movies, but was never passionate about them until around this time. My best friend and I watched it all those years ago and fell in love with Emile Hirsch. After that we wanted more Emile, so we watched ALL of his movies. Everything that he had been in up until then (and everything since). If it weren't for Emile I probably would never have also fallen in love with Kieran Culkin or found out that even though Jenna Malone can be kind of annoying sometimes she's in SO many great movies! Following Emile Hirsch's career has led me to so many great places, movie-wise, and I wonder what I would be watching today if it weren't for that bored Summer day when we decided we'd watch The Girl Next Door.
Do you have any movies that really changed things for you?
