    3. Neither. Um, can we talk about “Fences” or “Arrival”, please?
    4. I honestly couldn’t care less.
    1. You’re “Lady Bird”! You’re witty, realistic and quite charming. You also possess this strange ability to make every mom and daughter in the world cry at the mere thought of you. You long to go “where culture is” and escape the burdens of your small hometown. Your mom is “always on your case,” and you act like a brat because you’re just trying to find your place in the world. (And trust us, you’ll find it.)
    2. You’re “The Shape of Water”! You have a strange but deep interest in other walks of life, especially those that live underwater. You’re curious, have a peculiar love of hard-boiled eggs and are totally #SingleAndReadyToMingle. Your life is a magical fantasy, yet it’s tainted with some harsh difficulties and realities (including a crazy man chasing after you and a Russian spy). But don’t worry, your happily-ever-after is on the horizon.
    3. You’re “Get Out”! You’re in a complicated, weird relationship right now with your significant other after meeting their parents early last year. But at the same time, you’re smart, funny and have a biting social critique of the present world around you. You peaked in high school but have maintained your popularity since. Let’s just say, you’re the future. And you’re awesome.
    4. You’re “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”! You’re salty for all the right reasons and are constantly searching for the answers to all of the unsolved problems in your life. You hold some controversial opinions that people may tend to disagree with, but regardless, you still have a great chance at defeating those naysayers (if you had the time to bother to even worry about them). After all, you’ve been on a winning streak for the past few months, so who’s to stop you now?
