Nina Geld (Winstead) is a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has -- including those around her own deeply troubled past.

Career Best Turn From Winstead
10 February 2019 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Ever since Sky High I knew there was something special about Mary Elizabeth Winstead. And correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems like the first movie she has been the true and only "star" and focus. Even in 10 Cloverfield Lane, she shares a lot of screen time with John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr. However, with All About Nina she gets a full 90 minutes to flex every hit of her acting talent and it is quite something to watch. She does everything from very good impressions, to hilarious sets on stage, to then an incredibly heartfelt and deeply emotional set on a stage in the 3rd act. I kept asking myself whether I was supposed to laugh or feel bad for Nina as she would rip through a set and move onto the bar and drink away her sorrows. But in reality, you're supposed to feel both. The film takes you through the entire emotional spectrum as Nina learns to love herself so that she can eventually find an openness to someone else loving her again, an arc that Winstead very well could have been nominated for.
