Saoirse Ronan is a teenager who hates her mother by not knowing her real character. How she gets spoiled by the people around her in school and what happens in her life after the forms the remaining story.
Lead lady Saoirse Ronan’s performance is great, she’s made the experience so lively. The film is damn realistic, how a teenage girl’s heart and mind will fumble is shown in a superb realistic manner. All the supporting characters are very strongly sketched, each and every appearing artist had something or the other to do with the centre stage. Greta Gerwig has understood the context thoroughly and directed the film accordingly, which makes the impact level better. Jon Brion’s BGM is subtle which aptly suits with the film’s mood. Camera work is calm and composed which doesn’t tend to over hype the situation. Climax airport scene is emotional and opening sequence between the heroine & her mother in the car is exciting.
The script taken is not so interesting and it isn’t really worth to be converted as a film. In a small way, the narration is appreciable but there should be some engaging factor in addition to that. Sadly, the film miserably fails to hold on to the flow. The destination point stays as a big question mark even till the end. The happenings are just sad and beyond a limit, the progression becomes care-free without much a connection with the audience. Nick Houy’s editing is just in the not bad level as few cuts are abrupt. Also keeping the adapted screenplay factor aside, film has only small amount of satisfactory moments to please the viewers.
TO CONCLUDE – Life drama about a teenage girl which is appreciable for its realistic approach, but the engaging factor is too low.
