Becks ★★★½

"I'm single, broke, and living with my mother," says the 34-year-old Becks (Lena Hall), the central character of the film that shares her name, summing up pretty concisely her current rut. This is a low point of her life, though, and she knows it. After accepting the problem, there are two options: Wallow in it, or try to improve her condition. For a while, Becks seems like a fairly standard, if enjoyable, film about a character doing a lot things to overcome her status in life. By the end, though, it's about something deeper than self-improvement by way of surface-level things.
