A Different Coming of Age Story
4 December 2019 | by amandajelliottSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Chicago films for the drone shots of downtown Chicago alone. I was curious about this film after Nina Metz reviewed it in The Chicago Tribune. I really related to not knowing where you are at in adulthood because regular milestones like marriage and buying a home doesn't apply, and even career wise, there's an entrepreneurial spirit and changing careers so instead of a lateral view, there's all sorts of roads in people's careers. I love how perfectly McKenzie Chinn (the writer and star) captured this.
