franks’s review published on Letterboxd:
so sad and painful to the extent that mama could only watch 20 mins. but that’s ultimately the beauty of this film in that it almost perfectly encapsulates being an anxious 13 year old. strange to relate so much to this story but her life is one i led and i’m very much grateful for that. ended with growth and elsie’s performance was so raw i felt like i was reading my own diaries. well done bo.
