I had much fun watching this film. I loved following the journey of the protagonist, her struggles and her victories. She is certainly original, and as my family concluded watching the beginning; "a little bit mental", haha.
While this film sports a few plotholes, they are nothing much and while they are possibly something which makes you think after viewing, while watching the film itself you will be too entertained to critique. It is mostly a light-hearted relief from the daily grind and holds a powerful message.
I was laughing a lot during the film, when I wasn't laughing I was fascinated by the plot unfolding and how well the protagonist handles it.
As someone queer, I was pleased by the representation this film holds. A lot of casual references done in a non-forced way, it feels just... natural. With that I am very pleased!
A charming film. I enjoyed watching and might even watch again. Awesome.
