Cernan Mari’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm not sure why, but this film has a stronger personal resonance for me. I feel a strong connection to it. Perhaps it's because I'm 22 years old and still trying to figure out who I am on this planet. I'm not sure if that's the main reason, but I do know it hit very close to home.
Having a film that tells the truth about growing up and the struggles that come with it is so important. I appreciated the openness about autism, mental health, and other issues. It covers a wide range of important topics, including life, sexuality, love, relationships, family, and caring for others. It really spoke to me, and I'm not ashamed to admit that the final scene of the film made me cry a little.
Despite being quite simple, and even overly sweet and naive in several more serious moments, I cannot recommend this film highly enough. It deserved to be seen by a large number of people.
After what I've seen, I'm in the mood to watch “S#!% House”.
