Jane Wants a Boyfriend movie rating: red light

Jane Wants a Boyfriend Louisa Krause Gabriel Ebert red light

While it’s nice to see a story about a woman on the spectrum, this drama about a young woman with Asperger’s looking for love and independence is stilted, forced, phony, emotionally implausible, and — contrary to all apparent hopes for itself — rather paternalistic and patronizing.

I’m “biast” (con): nothing
