    Please watch the film first before you form an opinion. I've read a lot of great reviews that sum up my thoughts (see below). Ultimately, it's a powerful film criticizing the exact issues it's being vilified for. Maïmouna Doucouré is extremely talented and evokes a lot of magical realism/symbolism in small moments that for the lead character are monumental, i.e. having your first period, discovering your father is taking a 2nd wife. THESE are the moments that form her behavior…

    Being young hurts. The first two-thirds of the narrative is brilliant, and then the filmmaker truncates the story and starts a new one ... Odd decision and definitely hurts the movie. Would’ve been much stronger sticking to the original characters, but nonetheless a beautiful mediation on young love and the struggle to voice your feelings. Also has an amazing soundtrack!
