The Second Mother

The Second Mother ★★★★½

A phenomenal film which perfectly finds victory and defeat in the smallest moments. I saw so much of people I know in this film, it has the kind of complex and layered female characters we don't really get to see in English-speaking films. The only flaw for me was that in a film with perfectly built characters, one of them becomes a little too big and is occasionally played for laughs, which slightly upsets the world we're in. Still, easily one of my favourite films of the year.
