    Lingua Franca


    A beautifully shot film about being in a precarious situation with little control. Conveys the consistent low-level dread that things could go wrong at any time while acknowledging that work, fun, community, family, romance, etc. don’t stop because of it. Olivia is working to improve her situation and is aware of potential dangers, but she doesn’t stop living.

    I’m the kind of nerd who wants to rewatch this to track the changing aspect ratios, but would probably get distracted by all the other visual inventiveness. I left the theater feeling joyful in a way I haven’t in a while.
