User Reviews

 
Realistic, Doesnt talk down to the audience
26 May 2020 | by alexis_ibarra5See all my reviews

This film is a great look at relationships- teacher/student or mentor, parent/child, boyfriend/girlfriend, friends, spouses, and the relationship you have with yourself and how you identify. As a woman and mother I found it refreshing all the grappling the main character did with her situation. It was great to see a complex relationship between the teacher and student without the complexities being overtly spelled out. Love the peak into this realistic situation and setting.
