Danielle Lessovitz brings us a male-centric, slow burn film that slowly introduces female characters. The main character, Paul (Fionn Whitehead, Bandersnatch), brings us his White Boy Realness while his half-sister is the staunch, cold, entitled person who has everything but won’t lift a finger lest she be slightly inconvenienced. I would have loved for their story to be more fleshed out; we’re not told if they have the same mother or the same father.
The movie heats up when we are introduced to Wye (Leyna Bloom), Paul’s love interest. Paul tells a few white lies and he almost gets lost in how he wants things to be instead of how things are. It does gain traction toward the end, so it’ll be interesting to see how Danielle Lessovitz grows as a filmmaker.
