Regina Hall is glorious in this sharp yet generous portrait of women’s relationships, one smart and witty about how women navigate everyday sexism. Genuinely surprising that it’s by a male filmmaker.
The female coprotagonist here totally up-ends onscreen stereotypes about women, and she is not depicted as broken or unfeminine for doing so. [This post is not behind the paywall.]
Bracingly off-kilter, a sort of anti rom-com that sends up a cultlike subculture while embracing the full, curious humanity of those who live in it.
