I really enjoyed Miss Stevens in a way I didn't think I would. The story was emotional, felt real and really drew me in. There were some moments especially in the first act that almost felt like something big was going to happen but it never did. But that just added to the feeling of honesty and reality that I love in this movie. All the acting is top notch especially from Timothée Chalamet. His performance is layered and touching and he is incredibly magnetic to watch. Check this movie out if you have 90 minutes to kill and have a Netflix account. You won't be disappointed.
