User Reviews

so enjoyable, such a treasure
6 January 2019 | by vandwedgeSee all my reviews

When you see enough movies, you start to get bored of them, and especially of The Formula. Then you come across something like this and it's such a breath of fresh air. Such subtle and understated wit, such an immersive and palpable environment and characters. You feel everything the movie wants you to feel. Nobody but Lena Dunham could have made this.
